“Breakfast with a fantastic view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

We stayed 3 night at this lovely hotel. Our room had been renovated, and was not very large but extremely pleasant.
The bathroom had a bathtub, quality amenities, AND a bidet.
The terrace on the 6th floor has a wonderful view overlooking the roofs of Florence, Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio. It's wonderful to have breakfast (plentyful) there al fresco before starting the day, and a nightcap in the evening before going to bed.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, I found.
(Breakfast tip: if you don't like the coffee that comes out of the machine, ask the waiters for an espresso. I had a nice espresso macchiato every morning without a surchage).

Room Tip: 5th floor with a view, such as 511 or 512

Stayed at the Pitti Palace for 5 nights last week - would not hesitate to return. This is a well positioned hotel just off the Ponte Vecchio - easy to walk to anywhere in the City. We walked from the station in 10 minutes, having travelled from Pisa. We found the staff welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, that included the Receptionists, Cleaners and Bar/Breakfast staff. The terrace overlooking the City was a bonus for breakfast and for drinks in the evening - we can recommend the Aperol Spritzer!

We ate in various places - loved the incredible lunches at All'Antico Vinario on Via de Neri - HUGE slices of bread and various fillings! We found the prices for 3 courses with a bottle of wine to be very reasonable. Also loved the Gelato place right across from the Hotel - great choice of flavours. We walk everywhere and enjoyed the Uffizi (book ahead in the UK, saves time),The Duomo, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens, Piazza Michelangelo plus lots of other sites.

The room was fine, at the back of the hotel on the second floor, which was probably slightly quieter and although we always travel with ear plugs, we didn't have to use them even though we slept with the bathroom window open. There were nice toiletries too, replaced regularly, so everything was in place to make the whole stay very comfortable - probably one of the best situated hotels we have stayed in.

We spent about six days in Florence and stayed at the Pitt Palace al Ponte Vecchio and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a superior room and, while a little lacking in character, it was large, clean and more than comfortable, with a large bed that ensured both my partner and I got excellent nights' sleep there. Although we overlooked a narrow road, it was very noisy, but the double glazing certainly shut out all but the loudest noises. The en-suite bathroom was large, with everything we needed.. The staff were helpful and, while the breakfast room, with its fantastic views, seems a bit chaotic to the newcomer - the layout could be better, and there's a lot of criss-crossing the room to get what you need - we thoroughly enjoyed it, with a selection of rolls jams, cold meats and cheeses, as well as croissants and pastries or toast. Certainly, the juice and coffee come from machines, but it was all perfectly acceptable and we never left the room feeling hungry or hard done by.

Most important of all is the location, which is perfect for exploring Florence. Everything was no more than a 15 minute walk away (or a slightly longer amble, because you'll want to take your time) and the Ponte Vecchio is right at your doorstep. We discovered the nearby Santo Spirito area, and the restaurants around there were fantastic and only a five minute walk away, so we never had to settle for tourist traps north of the river (we did stumble into a couple for a lunch-time panini: the nearby Indian/Mediterranean restaurant is worth a miss, that's for sure) and after a day of wondering around the city and taking in the sights we'd stroll back, relax in our room and then wander off to get something to eat in the evening.

All in all, we felt very lucky to have booked ourselves into this hotel, and would definitely consider a return.

This is a wondeful hotel in a great location at the southern end of the Ponte Vecchio. We stayed 4 nights here and walked everywhere. All the staff are helpful, especially the front desk who answered our many questions. The restaurant is good and sundowners on the terrace are something we looked forward to daily.

The hotel is literally 5 steps from the Ponte Vecchio and therefore near to a lot of the main attractions. The staff could not be more helpful and the room was a good size and beds were comfy. We could hear some traffic noise at times but no more than you would expect with the situation of the hotel. The breakfast while on the scenic terrace was adequate. We ate breakfast one morning but went to the city the next day. All in all would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is all about location. The Ponte Vecchio bridge is just steps away and it is a short walk to city center. Our room was small, but it was clean and we had great views of the city with a small balcony. Breakfast was served in the terrace bar overlooking the city, a great way to start the day. The staff was friendly and helpful with great restaurant recommendations. Overall, we really enjoyed this hotel and thought the price was very reasonable compared to other hotels in the same area. If you want a nice hotel that is in the heart of Florence, check this place out.
