“Just Perfect !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

We loved this hotel. It's in the perfect location....close enough to walk to any of the key Florence sites and still very quiet. We booked a Deluxe Arno River view room, and were upgraded to a larger river view room (Room #323) with two french balconies overlooking the Ponte Vecchio. The service was outstanding and the breakfast buffet was wonderful. We particularly liked Daniel and Samuel who ensured our cocktails were made perfectly...and served with a smile. We stayed for four nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. There are great restaurants nearby, and the hotel restaurant was also outstanding. Highly Recommended !

Room Tip: Go for the river view, it's worth it.

I was greeted at the front desk by a young lady who was cheerful, professional and extremely helpful. This hotel is a lovely place to stay and convenient to most key sites in Firenze. Its location close to the Ponte Vecchio also means its easy to find. As a member of the small luxury hotels club I was entitled to room up grade and a special welcoming gift. I received neither so that was disappointing. The concierge staff are a mix of friendly and helpful to one person who was businesslike in appearance but couldn't really care a darn about you. I left the hotel with mixed feelings!

This lovely boutique hotel is perfectly situated a block from the Ponte Vecchio and not far from the Pitti Palace. Our room was on the street side but very quiet. The hotel staff was friendly and able to answer all of our questions. Their is a lovely sitting room downstairs where one can view the beautiful artwork on the walls on in the coffee table books, or just sit and look out at the Arno and drink limoncello before or after dinner. Our stay was delightful all around.

We spent 3 nights there last month and had a wonderful room, on the 7th floor, which looked over the Arno River and gave us wonderful views. The bed, extra couch and sitting area are all facing the big windows which open to hear and see the sights of Florence. Well balanced and Ferragamo touches were everywhere, which when combined with the service and concierge that know how to please, are elements we love to have at our disposal. The sitting area and lounge are reminders of how small and thoughtful hotels keep their colors simple, people available, and service that always says yes. A must for a few days perfectly placed by the Ponte Vecchio bridge but without the noise and chaos.

Room Tip: Above the first floor

The Lungarno is a charming bootique hotel. Its location is perfect, just a few feet from the Ponte Vechio and directly on the Arno River. The rooms are comfortable. Ask for one with a river view. The service is excellent. 5 Stars+

Room Tip: Chose a river view room. Its worth the price differential.

We drove from Castelnouva Berandanga to Firenze...what a nice drive. I'm glad we did it..stopped along the way in a view villages such as Panzano and Greve..had lunch at a roadside restaurant with a fireplace. Driving into Florence was a bit nutty. In order to drop off our luggage, we had to pull to the side of the very narrow Via..the downfall to this hotel was there was no bellman to grab our bags. I stayed with the car while my husband made 3 trips to unload the car. If we were older ( I always think of my mother and father in these situations) it would have been a real problem! We thought right away "oh no, wrong hotel" Once we figured out how to drive across the bridge, drop off the car and walk back to the hotel, we were very happy. This is not as easy as it sounds because sometimes the one way streets randomly change direction in Firenze...depending on the day! The hotel staff was friendly. The bartenders were attentive. The hotel bar offers comfortable chairs, couches and beautiful view of the River Arno and Ponte Vecchio. Breakfast was included and the service and selection was very good. I was charged $80 Euro cash for the front desk to purchase 2 tix for Ufizzi museum. I was caught by surprise and paid. I wasn't informed of the increased rate for this service; felt a bit ripped off. Our room was called "sight and sound" right on the river with a balcony...really awesome! No fitness center.

Room Tip: "sight and sound"

Stayed here for 4 nights while visiting our daughter. Lovely hotel! At check-in we got up-graded to a beautiful 2-level room with balcony. The decor, service and ammenities were all first class. When my hair dryer didn't work they promptly delivered a working one.

We did some last minute museum tours and the front desk were very helpful in coordinating them. We got charged double the price for the tickets but the convenience was worth it. Front desk personnel so very nice!

Breakfast buffet was nice. Even eggs which is sometime difficult to find! They gave us a discount of 21 euros/person instead of the regular 28 euros.

Only drawback fitness center was located at another property (5 minutes walk). Didn't bother going.

Would stay here in a heart-beat!

Room Tip: * A river view room is a must! If you book it ahead of time it is an extra 110 euros/night! We took...
