From the booking process onwards the staff at this hotel couldn't have been more helpful. I emailed them numerous times with various questions about the rooms and the train times from Pisa and they always replied promptly and gave me all the information I needed .
The room was amazing and the views from the 3 windows breathtaking. When we arrived the lady who greeted us showed us around. The two roof terraces, one looking over the Arno and the other looking over the Duomo were incredible. We didn't need to go to any other high buildings in Florence to take photos over the city as it was all here . The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast gorgeous with lots of choice. I still can't work out how thenroom was so quiet being in the centre of Florence. We were able to open the windows in the room wide to hear the bells of Florence chiming.
All in all I would definitely go back to the Antica again and hope to very soon. It isn't cheap but worth every penny. All the staff we met , from the ladies on reception to the staff serving breakfast, were very friendly and helped with any questions we had, printing off train timetables and generally just being as helpful as they could. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough, thank you for a memorable stay.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- n the heart of Florence, in a prestigious 13th century building, you will find the Historical Tower "Antica Torre di via Tornabuoni n° 1. The historic building, which belonged to the Gianfigliazzi family until the end of the 18th century, hosted numerous important historical figures. At the beginning of the 20th century, the palace was transformed into a "Piccioli Guesthouse", quickly becoming a favorite residence of the English aristocrats and literati that loved the atmosphere of Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance and the Sweet New Style, with its churches, works of art and unique cultural climate. After the Great War, the Piccioli Guesthouse was closed, but reopened in 2001 under the name "Antica Torre". Thanks to careful restoration work which preserved and brought back to life all of the buildings original appeal, the Via Tornabuoni palace acquired life and warmth once again. The magnificent complex is considered one of the historic "tower houses" of Medieval Florence, and it preserves to this day the original architectural characteristics. It is an admirable example of how man is capable of taking buildings which were once devised for the purposes of war into oasis of peace, culture and hospitality. ... more less
