“Very good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2011

If you travel by car( hotel has free parking) and would like to stay in Florence close to all major attractions - Hotel Principe is very good choice. We asked for a room with river view - and got one. Room was quiet outdated, but clean and with very nice view. Staff was very pleasant an helpful. My husband needed to print and scan document - receptionist helped him, even after his shift ended. Breakfast was average... 5 min boiled eggs do not exist - you get 15 min squash ball or 3 min egg shake, very nicely ( I am serious) presented. We tried two days in a row... Overall impression is good.

Room Tip: Ask for room with river view

I found this hotel very friendy with excellent service. The staff were very helpful. The rooms were a little dated but very clean and functional. The location was only a few minutes walk to the centre of Florence. Internet and parking was provided at no extra charge. A huge bonus in Florence.

This is a charming place with great views and an outstanding personalized service. The type of service that is hard to find nowadays.
The hotel is also very conveniently placed within walking distance of all the sites and monuments of the historic center of the city.

As soon as they found out that I drank soy milk and ate free range eggs they procured them for me without my even asking for them and at no extra charge !!

Mr. Nisi, runs Hotel Principe with real elegance, charm and warmth as do the members of his family and staff.

Next time I am in Florence I will most certainly stay at Hotel Principe !

Congratulations Mr. Nisi and thanks for contibuting in making my stay in Florence so incredibly pleasant !!

Our room had a balcony that overlooked the water and the bridges of Florence. The view was breath taking! Far enough away from the hustle of the city yet centrally located to the sites. The staff is very friendly, top notch. They really care about you as a guest. The breakfast was also excellent. If you are staying in Florence seeking out this hotel is a must.

I stayed with my ssisters and cousins for 3 night at Hotel Principe and would return again and again! We had the opportunity to travel through Italy and stay at many hotels but this one will always bee remembered because of it's quantness and caring staff. The owner was wonderfully sweet and accomodating. He was willing to assist us in any way, and we felt right at home. The rooms were beautiful, the gardens exquiste, and the roof top terrace provided unbelievable views of Florence both day and night. The breakfast was included in our rate and was delicious and fresh and plentiful. I wish we had more time to spend there and it is definately on my list to one of the places I will dream of returning to.

This hotel is very good for the price! The place is small and quaint, and the view of the town isn't too shabby. The staff were very helpful but at times seemed agitated with guests. Must see the garden in the back of hotel, the breakfast was decent, with just a few options of food. Easy to find hotel, decent sleeping situation, beds OK, location is nice, can walk 10 minutes up the sidewalk and get to the restaurants, shops, and touristy spots. The hotel is in a quiet location, which was nice. Florence was a nice city--must see the Duomo! and as far as shopping goes in Italy.. Florence IS THE PLACE TO SHOP... get leather there! You won't find the same quality in Rome, Venice, Naples, or Amalfi Coast. Lastly, Florence is known for their GELATO!... IT IS BY FAR THE BEST IN ITALY.. any gelateria will do, must have!
