Features

Within the walls of the 13th-century Rossi Tower lies the Pitti Palace, a refined, seven-story tower that incorporates stones from the adjacent Ponte Vecchio. This privileged location affords guests an extraordinary lodging experience in the City of Lillies, an enviable vantage point from which to discover all of Florence's treasures.

First Time in Florence!

To start off, the hotel states they are 10-minutes walking distance from the Train Station - it took us 45 minutes to get there - with our luggage! That was a bad way to start our trip, but hey, it was fun and definitely an experience! The hotel staff needs to be more friendly, as there really wasn't any type of "how, how's it going" type of communication. The location however, is perfect! You're literally steps away from Puente Vecchio, and there is also a supermarket across from the hotel, which can save you a lot of money when you're in need of refreshments/snacks. The room was just ok, nothing to brag about. The breakfast was good, as you have the view of the city. We chose this hotel because of its location, which is just perfect! You can't go wrong with the location as you are literally steps away from the Puente Vecchio, which leads you to the heart of the city!

Wonderful location

I would recommend Pitti Palace to anyone staying in Florence. The location is perfect -- only a five-minute walk from the Uffizi. And it's only about a 20-minute walk from the train station. The breakfast on the top floor of the hotel was great with many selections. A minor annoyance: The mattress in the hotel wasn't the best, but by Europe standards, not awful. If I return to Florence, I will stay at Pitti Palace.

Fabulous location

This hotel was very good value for money and in a fabulous location. Only a few minutes walk from Ponte vechio bridge. Do not let the ordinary, dated look put you off. Comfy beds and clean compact room. Breakfast is very basic as I expected from other reviews. But the view at breakfast is lovely. Take your own hair dryer. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location

You can't get any better than this! Right on the edge of Ponte Vecchio, a short walking distance from all the main sites of this beautiful city. A very comfortable hotel, clean and with friendly staff. The highlight is the terrace where you can have wine tastings with canapés while watching the sun set over the city. I will be back!

Superb location!

Terrific location to explore Florence. Parking garage just down the street. As long as you are staying at the hotel you can go into the historic area to get to the hotel...may cost you 1 euro. Oustanding breakfast on the terrace which is on top of the hotel.

Excellent!

We couldn't believe we were footsteps from the Ponte Vecchio. Such an excellent location. This hotel has been renovated and is modern, clean and lovely. Our room was small but comfortable with enough space to unpack. Our room was over an ally that had nighttime garbage pick-up so it was quite noisy with the window open (we needed it open as the a/c wasn't turned on yet) but my earplugs fixed the problem. Wonderful buffet breakfast every morning in a charming roof top room with amazing views!

Everything is nearby and we walked all over. Very close to the Pitti Palace. Discovered we were near a non-touristic neighborhood called Santo Spirito which had lovely local restaurants.

Close to Ponte Vecchio

I had a single room and it was small, but clean. Hotel is in a very good area to walk to all attractions in Florence. Area was safe, but a bit noisy. It was a great value and I would stay there again.

Perfect to experience Florence

We were fortunate to have perfect weather out of season, but our 4 night break was made much less tiring by the incredible location of this Hotel. We cannot recommend it too highly. Many Thanks to the pleasant helpful Staff too.

great location

Great hotel and location. Just a short walk from Ponto Vecchio and The Duomo. Friendly and helpful staff who speak good English. The hotel is very clean and tidy. We upgraded to a room "with a city view" on the fourth floor, but to be honest it wasn't really worth it, as all we could see was the backstreets. If you want to see the Florence skyline, then go to the 6th floor terrace, and sit and relax with a Chianti. Our room was not massive but adequate, and housekeeping kept it spotlessly clean. A taxi from SMN station to the hotel costs about €12, or you can walk it in less than 20 minutes. Would stay here again without hesitation.

The receptionist recommended "Angelinos" a small trattetoria only a few minutes walk away. Very good place to eat. Steak was cooked to perfection.

Stunning spot

Exceptionally clean and well maintained, location right on the Ponte Vecchio amazing although potentially noisy for some, we didn't mind our corner room overlooking the crazy beauty of a Friday and Saturday night in Florence. Staff helpful overall, but reception was fairly disinterested and seemed constantly distracted..it's only May. Fridge and plastic cups in the room a bit limiting. Possibly a bit pricey overall but location amazing.
