“I'd return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We booked our room the day before heading to Florence for a quick trip. The location was great-- right in the middle of everything, and it was a relief to be only steps away from the hotel when at dinner, the baby started crying and we needed to take him back to the room to calm him down. The room was a good size for my husband, the baby, and I, and the bathroom was a full-size tub, which I haven't seen everywhere. The best thing was the staff-- they were all exceptionally nice and very helpful. We arrived at the hotel early and they allowed us to leave our bags until our room was ready-- they even offered to watch our bags after we had checked out, in the event that we had plans to continue doing some sightseeing. I'd definitely stay here again for our next trip to Florence.

Dear customer Ancient Tower is a real pleasure to hear from you that we were a good reference point for your family, but especially for your baby. Our location, being so centrally located in the heart of Florence, close to all major attractions, allows our guests to return to the room at any time of the day to relax and then go out again to enjoy our beautiful city. You do not need to take any means (bus, taxi ..) is all brought "foot"! In addition, we staff are very happy to help our guests at any time, to enable them to make the most of the time they spend in Florence. For this we have organized our room reception with luggage storage and we provide a bathroom for those departing and / or arriving prior to the delivery room.
Thank you again for your review, I hope to meet you soon with all your family
Regards
Pamela

This is a beautiful building with an amazing history. When you stay at this hotel it feels like you are staying in a welcoming family home. The location could not be better as it is so central to everything. Pamela & Constanza made us feel like old friends. They are quick to offer ideas for our stay and local secrets for great restaurants away from the crowds. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The red room is lovely and has good wifi

We had no clue when we booked this room what a wonder find it truely was. It is located in the centre of Florence. Carparking was available for an additional cost and the car was collected and returned with no inconvenience to ourselves trying to locate garage etc. This spot is surround by world famous galleries, museums and tourist sights. The girls were so helpful and we were delighted with the antique charm of our room. The stairs maybe difficult for travelers with ailments but they are only to the first floor where a lift takes you the remainder of the way. Would definitely stay again. Can not wait to visit Florence again it was a magical city and a great place to enjoy part of our honeymoon.

Room Tip: Pay for the triple room to have views of the square.

Dear Customers I'm Pamela thank you very much for your appreciations. We are no so much visible and famous but really simple and friendly. We like welcome our customers and feel them as in their home, but in Florence!! :-)) This is what all my regular customers tell me when they come back: "let's go back to our house in florence!!"
Our parkings affiliated are very good and cheap because first of all they are so close to us and after they transfer the car to the parking for you at the same price. So the service is complete. Our position is really in the heart of the city center, near all the main historical attractions, for this reason our building is very ancient (800 a.c.) and so we couldn't have the elevator down at the ground floor, but before it there are 30 steps. Thanks for pointing out the atmosphere in our rooms and for your words for Costanza's and my work to welcome you. I hope to meet you again in Antica Torre and in Florence. Bye!! ;-))

We are regular visitors to Florence, this is one of the best locations we have ever stayed at.
The hotel is lovely and we were made to feel very welcome by our helpful and enthusiastic hosts and there isn't really a downside to our experience.
Thanks
We loved it.

We had a delightful stay in March 2012 at Pamela's perfectly located Soggiorno. Warm and friendly, Pamela and Costanza were great hosts and made us feel welcome, gladly offering help with the parking garage, restaurants (we had terrific dinners at Trattoria Za Za and Birreria Centrale) and directions. We followed their directions and successfully navigated our way to their front door on the Piazza della Signoria; Pamela then called the garage and the attendant was there in 5 minutles to take our car to the garage - and then returned it on the morning of our departure. Yes, the 30 steps to the elevator were a challenge, but added an adventure to our stay. We stayed in the Red Room, which was large with a clean, modern bathroom, and a large window overlooking the courtyard behind the Soggiorno. There can't be a better location in Florence. It was a thrill each morning to step out the front door into the piazza and be greated by the spectacular Palazzo Vecchio, and we were two minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and five minutes from the Duomo. Our only regret was not spending a litle more and staying in the Golden Room overlooking the piazza. A highlight of our stay was meeting Pamela's father, Fabrizio, and listening to his stories about living in the building as a child and the history of Florence. The only shortcoming of the Soggiorno was breakfast. Other than the coffee and tea, I suggest you have breakfast at one of the nearby restaurants, or bring pastries back to the room. But, the tremendous location and friendly hosts more than made up for beakfast. We will definitely return to the Soggiorno on our next trip, and send our friends and family too.

Room Tip: The golden room would be worth the extra charge.

It was a great choice. The location was the best one could ask for. The service and the staff are just so lovely. Pamela is the owner and she is super helpful. I just can't put it in words how great this place is. Me, my mom and my sister stayed in the golden room with great view to the plaza and there is not One single day after that trip that we don't say something about our experience in Florence.
