“Spectacular...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

Hotel Lungarno is an absolutely flawless property situated along the Arno with a view of the Ponte Vecchio. The location is outstanding and is right down the street from the Uffizi and some main shopping areas. The rooms are modern, very sleek and extremely comfortable and a good size for Europe. We were fortunate enough to have two adjoining river facing suites (our three kids traveled with my wife and I) but were unfortunate enough to only stay a single night (we were heading down to Rome the next day). The rooms are gorgeous and the hotel staff was very attentive without being cloying. Rafael, in particular, was extremely helpful to our family from making a dinner reservation, to handling a housekeeping request himself and even getting me traveling in the right direction when we left by rental car the next morning for a stop in Pisa on our way to Rome (he even entertained my family and rescheduled our Pisa tour after I got lost and delayed returning to the hotel with my rental car). I highly recommend this hotel.

Outstanding. My favorite type of Hotel-charming, easy access to everything, flawless personalized service, and elegant without being stuffy. I loved this place and feel so fortunate to have selected it after originally planning my stay at the Four Seasons. The Staff is great-friendly and able to help with any request. Decor feels like a private yacht with crisp white slipcovered furnishings, little touches of blue and wonderful art overlooking the water. Breakfast is beautifully displayed and delicious, pre-Dinner Cocktails perfectly prepared. Perfect perfect perfect.
Our room was very comfortable-multi level, two full bathrooms, a nice sitting area and second closet, furnished waterfront Veranda, plus Bedroom.
Most of the time it's reasonably quiet-aside from the Public Patio space which sounds amplified by the water. Depending on the time of day or night and degree of revelry it could be off-putting for some.
After this week I can't really find a single shortfall. Lovely property and lovely stay.

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom apartments at the Hotel Lungarno for 9 days. Great location in a wonderful city but the apartment was certainly nothing special. For the price paid it should have been MUCH nicer. We'll be going back to Florence again but have found alternate accommodations.

I have to be honest. I can't think of a nicer, more perfect little hotel in Florence. We had a horrible time in Venice and were going to leave to go home early, and then we checked into Hotel Lungarno and our whole trip changed. It was so perfect. The staff is so nice, they all remember your name, they remember your key when you come back without even asking. It is set in the best location to shopping, restaurants, museums. It is right on the water. I promise you there is no better hotel, more beautiful in Florence. Don't choose anything but this hotel you will not regret it. I actually got engaged here because it was so perfect. I spent so much time looking for the perfect location but nothing beats the sunset, on the water, listening to musicians play on the bridge to the right and the gondola coming from the left with the nice breeze off the water. Amazing trip, an even better HOTEL. It is perfect!

Room Tip: Ask for room 103. No better room than that!

Excellent location near the ponte Vecchio. Rooms are rather small so get one with a view and balcony. Service is outstanding and the breakfast buffet is amazing. Great selection and very freindly staff. Would definitely reccomend staying here.

Lungarno Hotel is a chic and elegant hotel in the middle of Florence's downtown; designed by Salvador Ferragamo. The rooms were super comfortable and clean we all slept like babies. They're food is excellent too, a bit pricey, though, but their view of the Ponte Vecchio, which is right next to it, was breathtaking, so we didn't mind prices a lot. Their breakfast is excellent and their service was even better i loved my stay at Lungarno Hotel, best days of my whole trip, thank you!

This hotel exceeded my expectations. It was clean and the service was exceptional. The front desk went above and beyond to help my mother and I have a wonderful holiday. The rooms were elegant and charming. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Florence. Additionally, the hotel was centrally located and was convenient.
