We had the Terrace room with a real terrace facing the river, not just a balcony, a great room, beautiful furniture and a balcony facing the small yard for the bathroom. Breakfast was nice on yet another terrace facing the river. The hotel is well managed and the people are utterly professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend the hotel...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed January 12, 2017

We had the Panorama Suite. Our room lacked nothing. It was clean, comfortable, warm, welcoming, spacious, well appointed, and simply beautiful. The hotel has excellent wi-fi and adequate outlets for charging all the tech we carry. It is a tower. There are lots of steps even though there are elevators as well. The views of the Ponte Vecchio, the Arno...

This is a lovely hotel on one of the best streets in Florence. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the buffet breakfast was delicious. Many of the city's major attractions are within walking distance. But the best thing about this hotel is the 360 degree view of Florence the roof top area...

We are a family of four with two teenagers. We booked a suite with two rooms. This boutique hotel is very centrally located with probably the best rooftop bar area in old Florence. Our room was large with very high ceilings. The king sized bed was soft and comfortable. The kids twin beds were made up each evening in the...

We only stayed here for one night in March. It was impressive! Our room looked right over the Arno with a quaint window seat and a picture window. We slept with the windows open and loved hearing the street noise in the distance and having a great breeze. The bathroom was quite luxurious! Amazing views from the rooftop terrace! The...

This hotel is perfectly located in Florence. Beautiful bedroom with two fabulous en suites. The roof terrace is an added bonus where we enjoyed afternoon tea and a sunset aperitif. The barman on the roof terrace was so friendly and welcoming. We would definitely book this hotel again.

We only had one night here, and we wish we could have stayed longer. Very elegant hotel just steps from the Arno and a block from the Ponte Vecchio. Elegant rooms, gorgeous bathrooms, and we had a room with a view. The bar on the terrace has an incredible view of Florence. Very friendly service, and they made sure our...

I stayed at Antica Torre 8 years ago and was completely charmed. When I got the opportunity to visit Florence once again, I knew I had to return to this property. The room was as lovely as ever - modern, yet traditional with views of the Duomo. What really brought me back was the roof top terrace that offered views...

Just come back from a five night stay here. As a couple we had booked a delux double. Our room was amazing, right at the top and apparently we had received a free upgrade. Our room had a separate marble shower and two lovely window seats looking out onto the Arno and beyond. There was a little city noise but...

I stayed here with our family in 2013 and just LOVED it. That was in winter time. This visit was Summer and it is still gorgeous. The staff are so friendly and helpful.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We personally enjoy welcoming our guests, we wish to reinvent the concept of hospitality, and we have the inspiration to provide the warmth of home in every detail. This is how the Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni 1, Florence came to be: a tower-house built in the mid-12th century by the Guelph family of Ruggerini. At the beginning of the 20th century, this palace became "Pensione Piccioli," and quickly turned into a privileged residence for aristocrats and English writers. Closed after the Great War, Pensione Piccioli reopened in 2001, as a Period Residence called "Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni 1." Thanks to attentive restoration to preserve all its original charm, the evocative ambiance of the Palace on Via Tornabuoni has regained life and warmth. This magnificent complex is considered one of the typical "tower-houses" of Mediaeval Florence, and, to this day, it still preserves all its characteristic architectural elements: it is an admirable example of the human ability to convert buildings built for war into oases of peace, culture and hospitality. In this ancient tower, we have created a world of harmony, privacy, and attentiveness to our guests' needs. Luxury, peace, and beauty are all in traditional Italian style, and give the concept of comfort new aesthetics. Almost all rooms enjoy an enchanting view of the city or the Arno River, and all are furnished with the highest in comfort: satellite plasma TVs, DVD players, wireless internet connection, direct line telephone, minibar, electronic safe, air conditioning and heating, private marble bath with tub and/or shower, hair dryer, slippers and shoehorns. Some of the Rooms and Suites are decorated with a Renaissance flair: with frescoes, drapes in coloured precious fabrics, bathrooms in red Alcantara or Gold Calacatta marble, and romantic four poster beds. ... more   less
