OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

A stone's throw from the river and Ponte Santa Trinita, on fashionable Via de' Tornabuoni, the hotel has one of the city's prime addresses. Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signora are less than a five-minute walk. As the hotel is on the upper floors, people and traffic noise is reduced, and rooms benefit from city and river views. The main railway station is 15 minutes' walk away. Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signora (with the Uffizi gallery) and Palazzo Vecchio (town hall) are less than five minutes while Via de' Turnobuoni's high-fashion shops are within stepping distance.

By plane: there are direct flights to Florence Airport from London (2 hours 5 minutes), Manchester (4 hours 25 minutes), Edinburgh (4 hours 55 minutes). The hotel is a 25-minute drive from the airport. Book flights to Florence.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Occupying the upper floors of two adjoining stone-built palazzi - 13th century and 17th century - the hotel has an old-fashioned elegance with its ironwork balustraded stone staircase, marble-topped console tables, parquet floors and hand-painted walls. The furniture is classy but uncluttered and large potted ferns add an intimate homely touch.

THE FACILITIES

Apart from the kind and helpful staff - who can arrange walking tours and after-hours museum visits - the treats of this hotel are the two rooftop terraces; one looking to the Duomo, the other overlooking the river. With loungers, tables and chairs, and an awning for cooler days, you can dine, drink or relax up here. A lounge and bar are also available if the weather is chilly.
