“great place, great staff, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Stayed here at least 7 times and always found the place to be an excellent choice. A little more expensive than other hotels, but certainly worth the price. (if you buy in advance, you can get a significant discount.) located on the arno river, just outside of the busy historical center. everything is within walking distance. Staff is very knowledgeable regarding the tours, the sites, and the restaurants. We have several recommendations and they all turned out great. Hotel is changing ownership on 2013/1/1 but Staff doesn't expect significant changes in their operation. Breakfast is fantastic, eggs, bacon, croissants, real American coffee, etc.

Room Tip: rooms on higher floors tend to stay much warmer in the winter.

Have stayed here many times for business. Stylish, and rather old fashioned (in a good way). Rooms are variable in size but all good quality. Those at the front have a great view along the river. Breakfast is very good, and if you choose to eat here for lunch or dinner you will not be disappointed. Great location, only 5 minutes walk from Santa Croce, but not absolutely in the dead centre of town if that matters to you. About 10 minutes brisk walk to the Duomo.

This is a really nice hotel. Old school charm and service, good food in the restaurant. But you'll probably want to eat dinners out. They have a great breakfast. Our room had a view of Santa Croce that was just spectacular at night! And the service is impeccable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side away from the Arno and you should have a better view.

Second time staying at the Luccessi and enjoy the clean upscale european style hotel. Very good staff. Free WiFi, great concierage, and excellent service. Nice linens and confortable beds. Nice balcony on the fourh floor rooms overlooking the river. Booked a triple room for three and actually have two connecting rooms wirh two bathrooms. Very nice!! Small showers but hot water and many hotels lack that. Great location to downtown. Mant very good restaurant nearby!!

Website depicts lovely views of Florence and bedrooms. Single travellers are presumaby deemed to be second class citizens judging by the size of the cupboard I was given to sleep in. Reception told me this was a standard single room. Single bed right up against wall so I could hear next door drawing a bath each morning. Water from the bath taps was brown for a few second presumably room hadnt been used in a while. No face clothes/no clock in this luxurious 4 star hotel. The view was a stairwell consisting of other internal windows. A chair was mysteriously added to my room on my second night there - dont know why as no room for it.
One concierge helpful regarding where to pick up taxi the next day due to marathon being run in front of the hotel. Unfortunately he was not on when someone else suggested I pick up a taxi from an imaginary stand at a roundabout on the other side of the bridge
Good location though

After a long flight from Australia, we were greeted warmly by reception. We caught a taxi from the train station, which is around 13 Euros. I liked the hotels location, it wasn't too far from the main attractions, yet had a charming feel about it. Breakfast offered a varied selection. Our room had a lovely view of the river, but never heard any noise from the busy street below. We did eat dinner at the hotel one night. It was expensive, but the food was wonderful. Well recommended.

Room Tip: Request a room looking towards the river

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

good location, good breakfasts, spacious room and bathroom - plumbing a little old. faded splendour - but that was fine. Did not expect restaurant to be closed on Sun night when we arrived - did not see that mentioned anywhere on website. think 4* place should have facilities every day. Dinner menu did not cater well for vegetarians. Hard to get a relationship going with concierge staff - so many different people.

Room Tip: pay that bit mor efor the river view rooms
