The location is just perfect. All of Florence is within walking distance. The Ponte Vecchio is just a block away. The room we had was very nice, except it was loud at night. There is a bar right on the river that is apparently a very poplular place and people were hanging out until the early morning hours. But the views from our room were wonderful - and speaking of views - the roof top is incredible. We would switch from the Duomo side to the Arno side and back getting a refill at the bar on our way. The service was the best I have had in a long time. Everyone was friendly, they made wonderful recommendations for dinner, scheduled our car service pick up for us, and were just a wealth of knowledge and kindness. I can't wait to go back to the Antica Torre, although I will request a room on the other side of the hotel - away from the street on the River.
