This boutique hotel or "historical residence" is located in the historical centre of Florence. only a few steps from the Arno River & the Santa Trinita Bridge. The tower-house which forms part of this hotel, was built in the 13th century. It is in close walking distance to most of the historical attractions, including the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery,... More

loved our rooms and especially loved the service, both before and on arrival. Wish we had more time but at least with this location, we could get to everything we wanted to do quickly and absolutely loved just sitting on the terrace overlooking the city and the Duomo, the rivers, and listening to the bells of the churches,

Having trouble in categorising this establishment. I agree with all previous posts in most areas: The location is perfect, staff are all brilliant and service first class. Breakfast very good indeed,every choice available. The definite plus is the roof top terrace and bar area especially in the spring and summer months. An oasis of calm after or during a days'...

great hotel, great sleeping, good shower - who could ask for more? We had a great view, they had a great rooftop bar. While we didn't spend a lot of time in the room, we slept extremely well, and breakfast was superb. Thanks for the amenities, you made our visit to Firenze even better than Da Vinca could have.

This hotel is highly recommended. The service was top notch. The rooms were spacious and perfect. The hotel is right on the river in the center of the shopping district and no more than a 10 minute walk from all the top attractions including the Duomo. The hotel has two terraces, both with incredible views. One looks across the river... More

We arrived at this hotel after a very long journey from Canada (via Amsterdam and a 7hr delay) and were pleasantly welcomed by the staff. In fact, they had arranged a pick-up from the airport for us as well and were on time despite the mentioned delay. Our room was a very pleasant surprise as it was beautiful, spacious and... More

From the moment you pass through the huge historic palazzo doors, you enter a world of luxurious ease that quietly pampers, with indulgent touches eg linen sheets, throws. We stayed in the Renaissance suite with elegant 4 poster and very comfy full size single bed built into the alcove. Thoughtfully designed - shutters looking out over the Arno & pocket... More

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, and Dr Vranjes scented essences. 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
