What can I say about this hotel that hasnt been said already?
From the moment you check in, you are in a lovely hotel with such amazing views
Stayed in one of the rooms that overlook the River Arno, with a great view of a couple of the main bridges.
Rooms are spotless, and are very comfortable, our room came with Sat TV, Safe, Mini Bar, A/C - all mod cons really
The main reson we picked this hotel, was for its location, which you cannot fault, walking distance from everything - really!!!
And the views from the terrace are amazing, two levels of views, the top terrace is the best view with 360* views of the city
Eating out can be expensive, but no different from any major city, including London
We found a cheap little supermarket offering everything and a huge saving, why not get a bottle of wine, and some bread, some olives and eat them on the terrace - and save yourself well over 30 Euros & eat in ??
- 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
