We used the Hotel Principe in 2004 and 2013, for ourselves and several friends. Great location, on N side of Arno, looking across River at the Altrarno and Chiesa Della Carmine, and about a 5 min walk or short taxi ride from Santa Maria Novella train station. Family run, this former palace once housed the mistress of Victor Emmanuel II as he first ruled united Italy from the Piti Palace (and a romantic painting of her remains on the ceiling of the West parlor). Excellent beds, well furnished rooms and quiet with triple glazed windows. Breakfast buffet quite nice with best cafe Americano in Florence. Prices always seem competitive for four star at top of quality level. Staff always helpful and pleasant. Best rooms have glass doors onto balconies facing River.
