“Great location, staff and space”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed three nights in an executive suite which was a very good size with good facilities, including cooking utilities.
The welcome and introduction to the hotel was friendly and thorough.
Staff recommendations for meals were very appropriate and helpful.
The wifi was variable and was out of action at one stage for 4-5 hours but not a real issue.
The location just 3 minutes walk from the Ponte Vecchio bridge was fantastic for us to use our 3 day Firenze card which was worthwhile despite some initial misgivings regarding its value.
The bed was very comfortable and. English speaking TV stations was appreciated.
The breakfast included in our torrid was of questionable value as yesterday's panini is not great first thing in the morning and the coffee when delivered is lukewarm.
In hindsight I would forego the provided breakfast and use the small kitchenette facilities it make our own breakfast using supermarket items- the supermarket is about 300 yards away.

Dear Auswalkers,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us and rating us so high.
Your comments regarding the great central location, the large suite and its facilities, the service received by our staff, the free wifi, the comfortable bed, the English speaking TV stations and breakfast are highly valued. I am pleased that your experience was a positive one.

With regards to breakfast, I am sorry that the coffee was not as hot as you would have liked. Breakfast comes from a very nice nearby café that uses only fresh ingredients, I was very surprised you didn't like the sandwitch. Your comments are noted and appreciated, we will use them to make improvements as it is always our intention to provide high standards of service for our guests’ satisfaction.

I would like to thank you for choosing the Ponte Vecchio Suites & SPA for your stay. Remember to tell your family and friends to enter the special code LOYAL, when booking a room on our website, to receive a discount. We look forward to welcome you back in near future.

Kind regards,
Fargion Micol - General Manager

I wish this hotel had clones all over the world, because I would never stay anyplace else!

The location is phenomenal, so close to everything, but not in the most crowded part of town. The staff are entirely at your service and very happy to help. They each embraced my young daughter like she was part of their own family, which was great because not all hotels are as welcoming to small children.

The suites are HUGE, with every modern convenience including bathrooms which are luxurious even by American standards, and kitchenettes with fridges that actually have usable space. The rooms have hardwood floors rather than carpeting, which is great for germophobes and allergy sufferers. The beds are really comfy. Everything is impeccably clean and well kept.

In summary: Modern, spacious rooms, great location, reasonably priced, terrific staff, fantastic hotel!

Room Tip: Our group had 3 different rooms. One's bathroom had separate shower & tub, one had combined...

The hotel is beautiful and in a great location, literally 500 yards from the ponte vecchio bridge. This means you are 10 mins max, in walking distance from the shops, sights, other bridges and monuments/sculptures. There are small cafés right next to the building that serves a nice breakfast and coffee as well as the best restaurant we ate at for our stay, which was 200 yards away. The customer service is outstanding, the staff can't do enough for you and always helped with suggestions for dinner or made calls for reservations and tours. The staff were brilliant and always friendly!
The rooms are gorgeous, clean and modern. Everything you would expect in 2014. You get a big screen tv with Sky satellite, a lot of room to unpack and store clothes and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Bathroom and showers are really nice, always worked and again give a very modern feel. The rooms are cleaned daily, very quickly and without issues. We felt at home every night we came in from a long day touring the area. Even the wifi was good! There is also a small gym and sauna that was ideal to use to run off the great food and wine you can't help but find in the local area. I would put this in my top 5 places I have stayed either in the US or the many places I have stayed in around the European big cities. I have already recommended the hotel to my family and friends and I will be staying here again when I return to Florence in the coming years. Exceptional place!

From outside it looks very ordinary but once you are inside you are happy to stay. The room was modern and roomy enough for 3-4 night stay. Double glazed windows so not very noisy. A/C worked when needed. No bathroom but the shower was strong. Comes with little electric cooker, fridge and a coffee machine. 2 TVs and the large double bed was very comfortable. It takes just 3-4 minutes walk into the main bridge of the river and there are numerous shops around this hotel. Across the road we parked our car for 48hrs and it came to reasonable 50 Euro.
I will use this hotel again!!

Room Tip: Excellent Hotel in central Firenze!!

This hotel is small and intimate. The people that work here are very friendly and willing to help you do anything. The location is incredible as well- just around the corner from the Ponte Vecchio, but on a quiet side street. The room has a kitchen, living room, huge closet and nice bathroom with a jacuzzi tub! We look forward to staying here every time we come to Firenze!

We stayed in Florence for ten days; knew we wanted to be near the historical/tourist sites but not in the middle of everything. Ponte Vecchio Suites was very close, just a block off of the Ponte Vecchio, but once inside, we felt somewhat removed. Staying here felt much more like an apartment than a hotel. They have a very lean staff, just rotating concierges and one cleaning person. When you return late at night, the staff us all gone, and you let yourself in.
The staff was all very helpful. Tatiana, our favorite concierge/jack-of-all-trades, made our trip much more enjoyable than it might have been otherwise.
PVSS is close to some great eating, like Tratorria Bordino, and great shopping, like the Galleria d' Art PV, Umberto Chiappe (for men), Mandini Shoes, and Chelazzi. It's even an easy walk to Piazzali Michelangelo.
PVSS even has a small but very nice workout room.
When we return to Florence, we will definitely stay here.

Dear Mike H,
Thank you for choosing Ponte Vecchio Suites & Spa for your stay in Florence and for taking the time to post your feedback. I'm happy to hear that your ten days' stay with us was made perfect by the central location, in close proximity to all the major sights but also to your favorite stores and restaurants, our beautiful spacious suites and our helpful staff. I will surely pass on your comments to Tatiana regarding her being your favorite concierge. We strive to offer a more personal service and help you get the most out of your stay.
I am so glad you mentioned our small but very nice workout room available to our guests free of charge. It is equipped with state-of-the-art Technogym™ equipment, a treadmill, the most up-to-date exercise bike and the “Kinesis”, perfect for muscle toning.
We look forward to welcoming you back!
