“Felt like home: Small beautiful hotel with friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

My husband and I stayed at Principe for three nights, we had an amazing time. Owner and the staff are very friendly and nice and they made us feel at home, they will even offer you a free cup of coffee. Hotel is well designed with an artistic taste, clean huge rooms with a beautful view from the balcony.

Location of the hotel is ideal, it is located by the river and is at walking distance from train station and from all main attractions. we simply loved it and recommend it every one who wants a great yet serence vacation in the heart of Florence.

Stayed June 2012, travelled as a couple

We stayed in Florence two nights over Easter weekend to see the Scoppio del Carro at the Duomo. The hotel was very well kept, and tastefully decorated in antique-Italian style. The staff was very welcoming and spoke English well. They were also helpful with maps and directions. Our room was pretty big (for Europe), plenty of room for our pack-n-play. They cleaned and left us chocolates every day. We overlooked the beautiful courtyard, and the room was very quiet. Bathroom had a shower/tub and plenty of space. Elevator was small, but fit our stroller. Breakfast was good, standard European.

The location was good. It would have been nice to be a few blocks closer to sites, but the walk was only 10 minutes, and it was a very nice walk along the river. Being a little farther away, you get the advantages of more space, free parking, and stunning views from the rooftop. They let us keep our car there several hours after checkout on the last day. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others!

Stayed at Principe Hotel during the first weekend in June 2012 while visiting a friend in Florence. Lovely hotel, helpful staff and great service. Arrived early in morning and hotel was able to accomodate unexpected early checkin. Manager assisted with map and directions on how to find my way around the city. Highlights were the lovely garden in the rear of the hotel, rooftop terrace, attractive period furnishing in the room, free wi-fi and friendly staff. My room, at the rear of the hotel, had its own balcony and overlooked the garden. Hotel is next to the Arno River and walking distance to significant historic sights. After late evening meals, did not feel uncomfortable walking by myself in evening back to the hotel. Continental breakfast was included with the stay. Would highly recommend and will stay again if have the opportunity to return to Florence.

What a fantastic find! The hotel was everything you could ask for - clean, efficient and caring staff, great breakfasts and wi-fi that really worked well. The gardens and rooftop deck brought serenity to a city that is always busy. The location is perfect. A 10 minute walk to either the station or the Ponte Vecchio. They took care of all restaurant reservations before we even got there, and were always more than happy to make suggestions to help us have a great trip.
