OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

It's hard to get a more coveted position: right on the river, metres from the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. Cross the Arno and you reach the flagship Ferragamo store and museum in under five minutes. The neighbourhood of Oltrarno stretches south from the hotel and is a warren of artisan workshops, independent boutiques and lively bars. Florence's upmarket shopping area is just across the river, as is the Uffizi gallery and Palazzo Vecchio.

By plane: direct flights to Florence from London, Manchester and Bristol take around 2 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a 1 hour 10-minute drive from the airport. Private parking costs €35 per day. Book flights to Florence.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The hotel is so close to the riverside that you feel as though you're on a cruise ship. This nautical suggestion is picked up in the interiors with sailing prints in the reception and blue piping on the cream upholstered sofas. Large windows in the clubby bar frame the view.

THE FACILITIES

Service is attentive, although can be a little stretched at busy times such as check-in and breakfast. A complimentary drink was swiftly offered while we waited for our room to be ready. Facilities are limited but a doorman will help you with hailing a cab and carrying your luggage.
