                  • Older travelers

                    The Tower experience in the middle of the Renaissance/Medieval setting of Florence just off the Arno River with fantastic views from the terrace creates a unique atmosphere that cannot be repeated anywhere else.

                  • Older travelers

                    Beautiful hotel, amazing location for everything from shopping to museums. No need for taxi's, we walked everywhere.

                  • Older travelers

                    The hotel had a fantastic atmosphere and, despite being in the heart of Florence, was quiet and relaxing. It was so close to the main museums and churches that we were able to walk easily. There is a wonderful trattoria (Marione) just a few streets away.

                    Only the pillows - I couldn't find one fluffy enough. But that is a complaint I have about most hotels.

                    This is the place to stay in Florence. Everything was perfect. The room and bathroom were big, clean and very confortable. We had an excelent view over the River Arno. The location is excelent, right on Ponte Trinita, and you could walk to all major sites... and the views from the terrace over the city are absolutely stunnings. The staff is very very helpfull and if you need any kind of help, they will be glad to assist you and recomend how, where and what to do.

                    The river view from our room was superb and although the room seemed smaller than the web-site had led me to expect, it was quite adequate and the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom stunning. Late evenings spent on the rooftop courtyard with a bottle of wine very romantic - a perfect venue to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Centrally situated, ideal for sight-seeing and shopping. Staff and service perfect.

                    Great location!

                    Almost nothing but a/c was not great.

                    I was travelling with a friend and we both loved sitting on the roof terrace looking at the views around us after a busy day sight seeing and shopping around it was the perfect place to relax for a bit.

                    The location of the hotel was excellent. The beauty, breezes, and spaciousness of the roof terrace was the saving grace of the trip since the crowds at the important sites and the Summer heat were at moments quite stressful.

                    The service overall was friendly and helpful. At times, communication between staff seemed a bit chaotic, perhaps in part due to the poor location of the reception desk. I did feel disappointed that we weren't warned that work was being done on the exterior of the hotel and we had scaffolding outside our window with netting blocking the view from our room. There were special touches however, like a plate of fruit with congratulations for my parents' 50th anniversary and a room upgrade for them at no extra charge, that made up for the initial let-down.

                    Excellent hotel! The two of us fully enjoyed our stay. The hotel was a little difficult to find but that had more to do with the recently changed roads and my not up to date GPS than the location of the hotel itself which is nicely located in the historic centre of Florence only a couple minutes walk from Ponte Vechio.

                    The view from the rooftop terraces were fabulous, and the staff were polite and very helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean.

                    There was no turndown service at night, which we found surprising. Also, whilst we understand that during renovations, someone has to get stuck with windows covered by scaffolding, given we were staying there for 4 nights on our honeymoon, we thought perhaps an apology for it, or an offer to change our room halfway during our stay would have been polite. No other room open during cleaning seemed to have scaffolding covering the windows like ours did. The shower head is not fixed, and constantly moves during a shower, so that you feel you are climbing the tiles to get under the water. Food in the restaurant was ok, but could certainly be improved. Our safety deposit box also had an electrical problem, depriving us of the contents for 18 hours. We are not quite sure what would have happened had we been checking out before then, and needed our passports.The hotel was happy to fix it, but it was disconcerting, to say the least.

                    This hotel is fabulous. Loved everything about it. The location is ideal for exploring Florence and the view from the rooftop breakfast room and outdoor terrace is so beautiful. We had a wonderful stay and will always stay here when in Florence. The rooms are very spacious and we had a view of the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio so it was very special. Staff were very helpful in directing us to terrific restaurants nearby. Everything was perfect.

                    Wonderful hotel in perfect location in Florence with amazing views of the city from the terrace. The staff were all delightful and so warm and welcoming. My room was quiet and perfect for what I needed. I look forward to returning one day. The hotel was recommended to me by a friend and I will happily pass the recommendation along to others.

                    This is an unusual hotel since it is located within a building that also has businesses, although you would not notice this. The room we had was huge, it had a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen (with washing machine, dishwasher). This gave us plenty of room to spread out. The best feature is the terrance on the top floor where breakfast is served. You can sit and view the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, and the rest of the beautiful city. Also, the location of this hotel is perfect. You are within a couple of blocks of all major attractions. It's also quiet, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They selected and reserved seats and a number of fine restaurants. Wifi was free.

                    We would have preferred that the TV be in the bedroom.

                    We thought the staff were very friendly and helpful. Every request was dealt with immediately. Our room, although probably the smallest in the hotel was more than adequate and comfortable. When booking we asked for a quiet room and then later requested twin beds, both requests were granted with no fuss or bother. The roof terraces were wonderful and breakfast on one of them was the highlight of our stay. The food was generous and very good. We also enjoyed having a drink on the roof terrace before going out to dinner in the evening. We would recommend this hotel to anyone.

                    There was nothing we didn't like.

                    We liked the old city. Staff was great. Our room was nice with a view. It was easy to get around. We walked mostly. Took a few cabs. Lots of people. Breakfast was good as well. Shopping was everywhere. You where in the action.

                    Tv was not too good. We don't understand Italian. The Internet was kind of a pain. I know the US dollar is down, 1.5 dollars to Euros made it a little pricey for what your were getting. We would have loved it had it been the other way
