Soggiorno Antica Torre
Ranked #179 of 662 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 October 2014

You could ask for a better location situated where it is in the Piazza della Signoria and just a few steps away from the Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi, and just around the corner from the Duomo. The rooms at the Soggiorno are spacious, comfortable and clean only lacking in coffee making facilities. However as restaurants and cafés abound just outside this is not really a problem.i would have no qualms whatsoever in staying here again and would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: You need to first climb a flight of narrow steps to reach the lift to take you to the second floor w...

Location, location, location. I spent more than 5 hours searching for the place to stay in Florence. The first thing you find is nothing is cheap unless you really want to stay in a hostel! I too read the reviews below and agree with most of what has been written. Room 5 was large, clean with a big bathroom. It faces at the back of the hotel, so good if you don't want to hear the hustle of the main square. IT IS HARD TO FIND - However on booking you are supposed to be sent an email with arrival instructions, this never came. It was not a a big deal as we rang the hotel and were instructed by the staff. So for anyone else staying there in the future - Looking face onto the statue of David, the hotel is on the right. It does not have a sign outside, but the entrance is a wooden door between the two restaurants. When you stand at the door a brass plaque shows which bell to ring. The staff let you in by remote, up the stairs in the lift to the 2nd floor. You are given a code to enter into the door and in you go. Keys are in the doors to the rooms so you just check yourself in. Staff are available at the locations between 8am and 1pm. Wifi is available but at times was slow, however lots of free wifi offered around the city, so no big deal. Some nice touches with small fridge drinks at very reasonable prices and some boiled sweets in a tray. Breakfast is offered at 1.50 per item, but not needed as when you step outside everything is on your doorstep. In particular, step outside and turn left, four doors down is a tiny coffee bar at very reasonable prices, unlike some of the cafes on the square. As it is so close, very easy to take back up to the room. Check out is 10.30am. Hint: If you have a late flight back, leave visiting the Museo di Palazzo Vecchio (where the statue of David is) until departure day as they have a luggage store room where they will take your suitcase while you look round. They are not stupid, so will not take your luggage until you show your ticket. I would stay here again with no hesitation. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. We were shown the Gold room on checkout which overlooks the square. If you want to pay for a very large room with a fab view this is for you. It can sleep up to 5 as there is a separate area with a single bed (no door, just an archway) and a sofa bed.

Room Tip: Gold room: view of square Room 5 - at the back and quiet

For our 3rd visit to Florence we chose Soggiorno Antic Torre and we could not have had a better experience. Our room was large, bathroom cozy but appointed well, close to everything via foot and the staff were terrific and helpful with booking concert reservations, eating suggestions and arranging for a cab pick up service to the train station when we departed.

Lovely room & hotel, perfectly located, meticulously clean. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Wifi was excellent. Couldn't be happier!

Visitors should note that there is no sign for the hotel - one just rings the bell for number 3 at the door.

Well, you walk out the front door of the hotel and are right in the Piazza. Fountain of Neptune off on your right, and a bunch of curious diners in the street-side restaurants looking at you, envious at your choice location in the city. Completely nondescript front door, looks like it could very well be the entrance to an apartment block. Rooms are clean, if a little tired, which may turn off some travelers who are looking for the apex in luxury accommodation, but for those who value location and appreciate great staff this is a great choice.

Elevator / staircase was a bit awkward, especially if you travel with a big suitcase. I use a travel backpack so I had no issues, but one person in my group insisted on traveling with a full wardrobe.

Doesn't get much better in my opinion :)

Room Tip: Gold room! Splash the cash and you won't be disappointed.

Our rooms are individually decorated in typical style of the Florentine Renaissance. We try to maintain very high standards of cleanliness in our hotel.
