A delightful Hotel de charme located along the Arno river in the heart of Renaissance Florence, only 10 minutes walking by Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery. In the exclusive setting of a noble palace dated 1860 the rooms are furnished combining old charm and modern facilities such as satellite Tv and free Wi-fi, in a perfect game of contrasts creating evocative atmospheres. Several of the refined rooms have a beautiful view or terrace over the river and the historical bridges up to the hills that surround the city. The other rooms are overlooking the Italian garden where the flower beds arranged in a staircase and the flowing fountain offer a tranquility hardly imaginable in the center of Florence. Our guests can take advantage of free private Parking inside one of the two gardens of the Hotel and also of an elegant Spa that sits right next door to the Hotel. The Hotel is ideal for the traveler who likes to feel at home while away from home.

Warm staff, wonderful setting

We have been to Florence 4 - 5 times and this by far was our best experence much tributed to the hotel and it's staff. It was our 40th wedding anniverary and they did all anyone could do to make it memorable. They should change the name to Domandare e ricivere.

Absolutely Incredible

Better than the NYC Plaza...view from balcony overlooking the Arno from Point Vecchio west...your neighbor is the US Consulate. Four blocks from Duomo...what a beautiful building, well maintained, large rooms and the staff is absolutely the best I've encountered in Europe. Breakfast was great and served with impeccable style. What can you say about a hotel that changes its welcome carpet daily (it's white linen..really) and has a private garden complete with wisteria everywhere and a koi pond. Don't miss this one...you'll be torn between seeing the treasures of Florence and just staying at the Hotel Principe Florence

Florence, like many other old cities, has strict traffic restrictions and parking is never easy. The hotel staff arranged for us to leave our car in the side courtyard..secure and safe. All of the city was easily accessible. A wonderful trip.

Great Place to Stay

Hotel has a great location, just across the street from the river. Breakfast was good. There is a patio on the room with the best views of the city. Great place to watch a sunset. Rooms were clean, comfortable. Staff was very helpful and kind. Would stay there again on our next trip to Florence.

Charming hotel

This hotel was a like a Victorian-decorated house. It was beautiful. Rooms had antique furniture, so not much counter space anywhere. Very helpful staff, carried our bags and showed us to our room. Very secure parking and they even let us leave the car the next day after check-out. Conveniently close to city center, easily within walking distance of museums and churches.

Principe Hotel Florence

Our lovely room faced the Arno River. Some rooms face their elegant garden. The staff recommended for lunch a nice cafe around the corner. For dinner, recommended, within walking distance, an excellent restaurant. One of best meals we had in Italy. Dinner of two was $100 (included tip). About two blocks away you can board the Hop-On-Hop-Off tour bus. Ponte Vecchio about 1 mile. Free parking. Breakfast was in small dining room. Table linens. Definitely would stay there again.
