Tallest Private Tower in Florence

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 23, 2006

Located one street north of the Arno River situated between the Ponte Vecchio and Ponte S. Trinita. Within easy walking distance of the Uffizi and Piazza Di Signoria.

The hotel has a 13th century tower that is the tallest privately owned tower in Florence. You can go to the top anytime. There is a few small tables and chairs. And in the evenings the hotel offers cocktails which you can enjoy while taking in a 360 degree view of Florence. The sunsets from the tower are amazing.

The hotel staff were very friendly, very helpful. Our room (camera cinque) had a partial view of the Palazzo. The bathroom was fine but small. It was a very unique hotel but not the most luxurious. You felt like you were in a medieval castle. Breakfast was served in a sunny room and consisted of various breads, cheese and yogurt along with choice of coffee and juice.

Overall I would recommend the hotel based on the friendliness of the staff and the amazing tower views.
