Recent guest reviews

Friendly staff, great breakfast and a very central location. We will stay here next time when in Florence

Good location, every things at walking distance, the bed was good and alsobthe pillows, every thing clean

The Hotel Pitti Palace Ponte Vecchio is in a great location to walk Florence's City Center. The staff was very helpful and Max was great in helping us arrange alternate transportation when our flight home was cancelled at the last minute. We would definitely recommend this hotel and will return when visiting the northern Italty

Perfect location! Oh and the view -- the breakfast area is especially worth waking up early for lol.

Great location, room clean , new , breakfast was good , first floor rooms are too noisy after 8 am

Beautiful hotel in a great location. We had a triple suite which was very spacious, it had two bedrooms, two closets and two refrigerators, and a quaint balcony with a table and chairs that overlooked a very narrow quiet cobblestone street. Breakfast was wonderful and the restaurant had an amazing view of the city. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We left a cell phone in the atrium while printing our train tickets, they found it for us and were willing to send it to our hotel in Como!!!

On the Oltarno side of the river, this hotel is close to many major sights. The Uffizzi is a 5 minute walk, the Duomo perhaps 10 minutes. The accommodations are good, breakfast very tasty & generous, the rooms small but nicely decorated. We found the staff to be friendly.

We walked from the train station (about 20 minutes of enjoyable walking). The Hotel Pitti Palace is right on Ponte Vecchio--the heart of the city. The room was impeccable . We had breakfast buffet on the restaurant on the 6th floor with a beautiful view of the city. I highly recommend this hotel.

CLean , comfortable hotel. Helpful staff. Breakfast included

excellent location, right on the entrance of the bridge. The room is very basic even the junior suites we booked, however it was an interesting experience sitting next to the window drinking coffee people watching.

It was everything I expected. Loved the location. Being at the Ponte Veccio meant you couldn't get lost. Everything was close by. Breakfast was very good although a little heavy on the sweet side verses healthy. I was on the 1st floor which I would not recommend because it was noisy. The room was very nice but no place to put your clothes except hanging in the closet. The staff was always helpful. The free wireless works fine, however, one needs a new username & password every 24 hrs which they neglected to tell me although it was in the fine print. That being said I would stay there again.

Extremely welcoming staff....attention to cleanliness ... Outstanding breakfast with wonderful home baked specialties!!! Lovely street near Pza Di Spagna.

Good: location and breakfast nice view from the top terrace Bad: very rude staff it was impossible to connect to the internet and the staff did not care small rooms

This hotel is located in the perfect spot from which to explore Florence. While the rooms are very basic, they are clean. The staff is very helpful and the rooftop restaurant (for breakfast in dinner) has good food and some of the best views in town. I travel to Europe often and this is one of those great European places that you don't find anywhere else. Perfect for what it is and very good value.

This was my first visit to Florence. It was important to find a hotel that was close to all the important attractions. I found that, with this hotel. It was safe, secure and felt like home. I will stay here again!

Location was perfect, literally steps from the Ponte Vecchio. The area is safe and clean. My room was small, but clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again.

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!

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.

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.

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!
