My brothers,sister and I took our mum to Florence for her birthday, I tried to get an upgrade for the special occasion but could not without paying an extra 100 euros a night which was a bit expensive for a view of the river, especially since our rooms were okay without a view of the river (two triple rooms). However,...

We had booked online prior to our visit and were surprised by having our accomodations upgraded upon arrival. Our rooms had a spectacular view of the Arno River and Piazza Michelangelo...magical...

My Son was sick the day we arrived, and they let us check in 4 hours early without extra cost. The breakfast buffet was very good, and had a good selection. The hotel is situated along the...

The Plaza Lucchesi is right on the front of the Arno - the view is wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable, the breakfast to die for and the staff very professional.

This is a lovely hotel located right on the Arno river, not far from the ponte vecchio and Santa Croce. We were happy to stay in a bit quieter area away from the city center and duomo. The hotel staff was the friendliest and most professional we encountered during our entire 10 day stay in Italy. Our room was spacious...

The location is great, right next to the Arno River. We could see Santa Croce and the top of the Duomo from our room. The complimentary breakfast was very good, with eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, bread, and other tasty items. The room was nice too, though it did smell slightly of smoke the first night, but we didn't...

Again, booked this hotel based upon TripAdvisor recommendations. It exceeded our expectations. We were greeted at the curb by a helpful staff and learned our room had been upgraded. The upgraded room had a balcony which overlooked the Duomo and off to the left you could see the River Arno. The hotel is close to everything - we walked everywhere...

Easy to get to via taxi from airport, clean comfortable modern rooms with friendly staff and very good breakfast. We had the superior rooms that had lovely views of the river. Short 10 min walk into the centre of Florence which is ideal if you need a walk after indulging in too much food.
