“Antica Torre Di Via Tornabuoni n.1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

This hotel is by far one of the best I've ever stayed at. The location was excellent, walking distance from the station and most of the main attractions in the city. The staff was incredibly helpful, nothing was too big a problem. However, the most amazing thing about this hotel is the roof top terrace. The views were truly magnificent and surpassed our expectations by far.
I will most definitely recommend Antica Torre to all of my friends and will return next year to explore the city some more.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else at any price. The location is perfect and the rooftop terrace is a wonderful place to view the city. There were no negatives at this hotel. The staff was exceptional at recommending restaurants. Eat at Buca Mario (within walking distance).

Anticipation! You've carefully selected your hotel after reading hundreds of reviews and looking at hundreds of photos...and it all comes down to the moment you first walk into your hotel room. Isn't it true? And how many times have we been a little or a lot disappointed. Yes, I know we get what we pay for, but sometimes...just sometimes we hit the jackpot. That's how I felt when we walked into our room at Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni...and that was before we went up to the terrace on the roof. The room itself was beautiful, very large, big spacious bathroom, lots of storage space, well lit, and best of all (as we found later) the bed was best we have 'ever' slept in while in Italy...and it was huge! The location is excellent (read other reviews) mainly because it's a few blocks away from the hordes! But close to the best part of Florence...which is out the door and across the Arno and into the interesting part of the city. Breakfast selection itself was as good as it can get...scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, cornettos, fresh fruit, cereal...and oh did I mention sugar donuts! I don't eat donuts, but how could I resist having my yearly donut in Italy...so I did! The terrace is gorgeous and large and comfortable and the veiws are as described and shout to you "Oh...that's right...I'm in Florence...Italy!" This is not your classic hotel with large front desk and sitting area...personally that isn't our style, so I was good. But if you want the view and a touch of class, you should stay here. Oh...and if you've from the U.S. and you need a break from Italian food for a night, have dinner at "Tijuana" which is a Mexican restaurant on Via Ghibellina. It is actually very good...and really Mexican!

We stayed at the Antica Torre for 4 evenings in May while our Travel Mates stayed at the Westin Excelsior. When they came for cocktails on the Hotel's rooftop Terrace overlooking the Arno they gasped and said the view was finer than their hotel. There is another Terrace where you eat Breakfast that has a lovely view of the Duomo and the City. That Terrace is open 24 hours with an honors bar that is ideal for a final nightcap while planning the next days events. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The staff was generous with information and quick to attend to any request. If you are looking for a hotel that is a special experience without the heavy tariff this fits the bill.

Room Tip: Avoid the least expensive rooms as they are quite small. Spend a bit extra and there is a vast diff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We personally enjoy welcoming our guests, we wish to reinvent the concept of hospitality, and we have the inspiration to provide the warmth of home in every detail. This is how the Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni 1, Florence came to be: a tower-house built in the mid-12th century by the Guelph family of Ruggerini. At the beginning of the 20th century, this palace became "Pensione Piccioli," and quickly turned into a privileged residence for aristocrats and English writers. Closed after the Great War, Pensione Piccioli reopened in 2001, as a Period Residence called "Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni 1." Thanks to attentive restoration to preserve all its original charm, the evocative ambiance of the Palace on Via Tornabuoni has regained life and warmth. This magnificent complex is considered one of the typical "tower-houses" of Mediaeval Florence, and, to this day, it still preserves all its characteristic architectural elements: it is an admirable example of the human ability to convert buildings built for war into oases of peace, culture and hospitality. In this ancient tower, we have created a world of harmony, privacy, and attentiveness to our guests' needs. Luxury, peace, and beauty are all in traditional Italian style, and give the concept of comfort new aesthetics. Almost all rooms enjoy an enchanting view of the city or the Arno River, and all are furnished with the highest in comfort: satellite plasma TVs, DVD players, wireless internet connection, direct line telephone, minibar, electronic safe, air conditioning and heating, private marble bath with tub and/or shower, hair dryer, slippers and shoehorns. Some of the Rooms and Suites are decorated with a Renaissance flair: with frescoes, drapes in coloured precious fabrics, bathrooms in red Alcantara or Gold Calacatta marble, and romantic four poster beds. ... more   less
