When you imagine an incredible hotel stay with all the amenities, service and location, and you actually get it---you remain speechless. The Hotel Lungarno was the best hotel stay we had in all of Italy, and we stayed in five star all the way, including Il San Pietro Positano.
My wife and I stayed as we were celebrating our two year anniversary and LOVED it.
Let me begin with the service. ALL the concierges were more than helpful, more than generous, more than kind and even funny.
I think other hotels in Italy should take lessons from these people!!! We had a few crazy incidents, including leaving our camera in a wine tour van. One concierge even offered to drive us almost two hours away in his own car to retrieve it!!! Luckily we found an alternative. However, they did ALL that they could to help us with everything from maps and directions to suggesting actual authentic and local cuisine. (BTW, you must try Osteria Cingale down the street, it's amazing).
Next, the location. Other reviewers have gone into extensive detail on this. I would just like to add, that after a long day of sightseeing, it was wonderful to cross the Ponte Vechhio and enter a sublime oasis. The hotel being right on the river, makes it a serene spot for a late afternoon glass of wine and watching the crowds on the oldest bridge in Florence. Leaving the hustle and bustle of the other side of the river, felt like a stress relief.
The hotel's muted colors, white and navy blue, the sounds, light music, even the aroma as you enter the doors, ensure that you have chosen the best place in Florence.
I suggest you upgrade to the room with the view and balcony, it is absolutely worth it.
As for the room, it is divine. All the amenities one would expect. Room service is delivered to the minute of your request.
We loved every minute of our stay and hope you do as well.
