We recently stayed at the Antica Torre hotel for a total of 9 nights. Four of these nights were due to flight cancellation for hurricane Sandy. We originally planned to stay a few days before and after renting a villa south of Florence. We did stay in 3 different rooms and felt they were all special with views of the Arno, the Duomo and lots of central Florence. The rooftop bar lounge area is magical as described by many TA reviewers. All the staff from the front desk to breakfast and bar staff were helpful, friendly and gracious. We hope to come back soon to one of our favorite cities and our new favorite hotel!
