We had 3 lovely nights in Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni and even though the weather was bad, the hotel gave us a warm welcome. All the staff were very helpful and hospitable (a special mention must go to the breakfast staff! ). The room itself was large and airy with a good sized bathroom and was spotlessly clean. The bathroom, while not in a modern style, was in a traditional Tuscan style and therefore may not appeal to everyone. There was a very comfortable bed and 2 small lounges to sit on in the room. All in all, a very comfortable and welcoming room, in a wonderful location on the Arno River in the heart of Florence! It is walkable from SMN railway station but I wouldn’t recommend this with the number of bags that we had (we caught a taxi, which cost us 10 euros).
Undoubtedly the best feature of this lovely hotel is its roof top terraces. The view is spectacular. You get one of the best views of the Duomo in Florence! And as a bonus the other terrace has an equally good view of the river. This is just the place to sit and have a drink or in our case shelter from the rain with a coffee.
Our only complaint was the internet in our room, or lack thereof. It was at best, only intermittent, so if you are reliant on it (eg for work), you will have problems.
