perfect location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 6, 2012

As usually on my Italian tours I am not booking a hotels in advance, for a very simple and practicale reason, I never know where shall I spend the night. This time I was travelling to Florence with my wife and she was in panic wheter shall we find an available accomodation. I was driving along the Arno, passing by Ponte Vecchio when my wife noticed this hotel so we stopped and tried our chances. We were lucky to get a free room but not one of those which overlooking the river.

Great location, excellent view

I stayed for 3 days in this hotel in March of 2005. My room (#449) had 2 windows with great view to Arno river and Ponte Veccio. Also, on the 4th floor I discovered a balcony accessible from a hall, also with a beautiful view. I loved to have my lunch there - there are 2 chairs.
The location is great - very close to the Uffizzi Gallery.
The room was spacious, clean and quiet if you keep windows closed. The breakfast (included) was delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Unique Quality: Location and views - these are great!

Directions: Next to Uffizzi Gallery, on the bank of Arno River.

Again, this was on a school trip back in 1976... so I can't tell you any prices, or how it compares price wise.
The location was terrific for walking out to see the sights.
I was in a room with 3 of my classmates and we were quite comfortable.
Can't say that I remember much more than that.

Unique Quality: Great view of the Arno... and of the Ponte Vecchio.

Directions: Along the river side. About a block from the Ponte Vecchio.
