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

This special hotel is located on the top floors of a 14th century tower made entirely out of stone. It is directly next to the River Arno, and about 2 blocks from Ponte Vecchio, Florence's most famous foot bridge. Via Dei Tornabuoni is also one of the city's most upscale shopping districts. The rooms we had, 61 and 62 were... More

The hotel is an old building on a fine street with upscale shops and well situated for touring or shopping. We had great views from our room. We were on the 6th floor and I liked walking up the old stairs. The rooftop bar was beautiful -- we had a drink to watch the sunset every evening. The breakfast room... More

This hotel is lovely and a perfect location for sightseeing!! We had the romance suite and it was incredible, gorgeous jacuzzi bath tub in a little alcove in the room and then a main bathroom with a shower. Staff were very helpful and the rooftop bar was amazing to watch the sunset. Would highly recommend!!

My husband and I recently stayed at the hotel and had a wonderful experience! The staff was helpful and friendly. We had a small balcony attached to the room which was enormous. Everything was clean and well kept. The balcony was nice but we really didn't make use of it so you might consider saving the money there. The terrace... More

We stayed here one night and next day while waiting for rest of family to arrive from USA. Agree with all the great reviews. This is like living in a palace - not modern but stately and gracious. You are also greeted so graciously and helpfully by the reception staff, like Monica. Room was large with two windows, great views... More

Amazing location, great staff and huge, bright rooms. We had two rooms, one that had an obstructed view of the Arno River. Breakfast on the roof top is excellent. I would never stay anywhere else again in Florence. The best hotel in Florence!

This is one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in. I stayed here with my wife and four children for four amazing nights. It was our second stay in the hotel, and we were in the Renaissance suite with an additional connecting bedroom. The room was absolutely gorgeous - stunningly and sumptuously decorated. It's first class in every... 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
