I stayed here for a long weekend in February and, as I was hoping to propose, I wanted somewhere both nice and geographically convenient! Happily this ticked both boxes!
Florence isn't a large city so being situated right in the centre and on top of the Arno was awesome and allows you to easily find all the main attractions by foot.
The hotel staff were really welcoming on our arrival and spoke English without making me feel especially stupid after my attempt at Italian! Our room was large and clean and, whilst we didn't get a view of the Arno, we did get one of the Santa Croce Church. In fact this may have worked in our favour as it puts you at the back of the hotel and means you're away from the main road which has a pretty constant flow of traffic. I'm not sure how noisy it is if you're overlooking the river but we certainly never heard anything from our room!
All in all it was exactly what we were after. A very friendly hotel with nice rooms, a great location and tasty food.
Oh, and she said yes so that was an added bonus! I highly recommend the Ponte Vecchio for evening proposals if you can find a moment when the bridge is empty (which we did). Thanks Florence!
