“perfectly placed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We stayed here in January. Easy to find if not a bit of a walk from the train station. Perfectly positioned at the end of the Ponte vecchio bridge. The staff friendly and accommodating. The chef lovely couldn't do enough for us. Can't wait to go back.

We come here every year and enjoy the warm reception from the friendly staff (especially Alessandro). While this is not a luxury hotel, it offers everything that the discerning traveler requires: great location, immaculately clean rooms and amazing service. The breakfast is buffet style and very good. I can't say enough for the breakfast staff. If you're lucky enough to get a table outside on the terrace, you will be treated to a spectacular view of Florence. By the way, if you are wondering what to do at night, this is a perfect place to come to while having cocktails. I must mention Martina and Daniele from the breakfast room. They are so accommodating, polite and helpful. I always look forward to seeing them when I go every year. This has become our home away from home for many reasons but we know that the same people will be there (hopefully!!!) every year and they make our stay that much more enjoyable.
PS. I must mention that along with Alessandro, Lucia and Elisabetta (at the front desk) are and have always been very helpful.

Located on less touristy side of Arno river. Steps away from Ponte Vecchio, around a half mile from a majority of attractions. Very quiet and newly renovated. We stayed in a three person room with a queen bed and a single. The room was fairly large we thought. Very clean, free wifi, free breakfast, great views from rooftop restaurant. Staff was very friendly as well. Great shopping in local area and better less touristy restaurants. Would stay again.

Okay, so I had a single room, which was a bit on the small side, but very clean and okay for three nights. But to make up for this: you step out of the hotel and find yourself on Ponte Vecchio, a ten-minute walk from the historical town centre...and breakfast becomes a picture-postcard experience on the rooftop terrace. So there are far more advantages than minor drawbacks - to be recommended!

A good 4 star hotel literally a few metres from the Ponte Vecchio. Excellent rooftop terrace for breakfast which could be better priced for afternoon drinks as it is sadly underused. Not recommended for motorists as the one-way system is for knowledgeable locals. Staff are pleasant and helpful with good language skills. If any smokers in your company a few rooms have balconies

We have just spent 4 nights in the Pitti Palace al Ponte Vecchio hotel and have enjoyed every minute. The staff are very warm and friendly and the chamber maids do a fantastic job. The rooms are simple but well kept and the location is amazing. It is well worth staying here for the view from the breakfast terrace alone. The breakfast itself is simple but of high quality and the staff are happy to help. I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel and I look forward to visiting again soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in a city view room and had no problems with noise as the windows are triple glazed. The a...

Have just got back from a long weekend in Florence having stayed at the Pitti Palace Hotel which was chosen for its central location and it proved to be excellent. All the museums and shops are nearby and only a short walk away. The view from the rooftop terrace of the hotel is stunning and the buffet breakfast was varied and plentiful
