If you're looking for modern hotel stop now.

The Antica Torre is an historical building that is so close to the Uffizi you can almost roll out of bed to the queue. This is a bed and breakfast where the breakfast is optional. There are many places to eat breakfast on your doorstep as are all the main museums, fabulous restaurants, the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo and fabulous boutique and designer shops.

If you want to be central without having to walk miles then you have to stay here. The rooms are huge and the bathrooms have a bath as well as a shower. There are loads of helpful tourist leaflets and as well as free wifi access there is a guest PC and printer free of charge in the reception. Costanza was on duty during our stay and couldn't have been more helpful with helping with restaurant recommendations and other local info.

I cannot think of a better place to stay for visiting Florence if your aim is to see as much as possible. There are so many fabulous places to eat that it is not even worth paying extra for breakfast and evening meal in your hotel. Try the Coquinarius restaurant, for the best welcome, the best food at reasonable prices, great choice of wines and just the friendliest service.

Thanks Costanza, you are fabulous and we will be recommending the Antica Torre to everyone we know x

Room Tip: Try to reserve a room on the front. We had the Blue Room which faced an internal courtyard, there is no view and ther is quite a lot of early morning noise when the restaurants below empty their bins!

Dear guests,
I'm Costanza, thanks for your beautiful words, for me it's a great pleasure to know to be helpful in recommendations for restaurants and local info that you liked. It's very important for all staff, to ensure that the stay of our guests become something special and unforgettable.
One of our strengths is our own closeness to all the major attractions of Florence museums, monuments and the beautiful boutique.
Close to us is full of great restaurants (thanks for the advice about the Coquinarius, I didn't know, but I'll try as soon as possible to be able to suggest to our guests) and delicious bar where you can have breakfast, but if you want to, we can serve in-room breakfast, at a reasonable price.
In the lobby and in the rooms there is free WiFi, but if our customers do not have their smartphone or tablet, we have made available in the lobby a PC, a printer and a telephone, that they can use freely.
I don't know how to thank you for your beautiful words about our Hotel and for your quick review.
It was a great pleasure to have you as a guests and I hope to meet you again soon in Florence.

A big hug from me, Pamela and Fabrizio
Costanza

We booked our room the day before heading to Florence for a quick trip. The location was great-- right in the middle of everything, and it was a relief to be only steps away from the hotel when at dinner, the baby started crying and we needed to take him back to the room to calm him down. The room was a good size for my husband, the baby, and I, and the bathroom was a full-size tub, which I haven't seen everywhere. The best thing was the staff-- they were all exceptionally nice and very helpful. We arrived at the hotel early and they allowed us to leave our bags until our room was ready-- they even offered to watch our bags after we had checked out, in the event that we had plans to continue doing some sightseeing. I'd definitely stay here again for our next trip to Florence.

Dear customer Ancient Tower is a real pleasure to hear from you that we were a good reference point for your family, but especially for your baby. Our location, being so centrally located in the heart of Florence, close to all major attractions, allows our guests to return to the room at any time of the day to relax and then go out again to enjoy our beautiful city. You do not need to take any means (bus, taxi ..) is all brought "foot"! In addition, we staff are very happy to help our guests at any time, to enable them to make the most of the time they spend in Florence. For this we have organized our room reception with luggage storage and we provide a bathroom for those departing and / or arriving prior to the delivery room.
Thank you again for your review, I hope to meet you soon with all your family
Regards
Pamela

This is a beautiful building with an amazing history. When you stay at this hotel it feels like you are staying in a welcoming family home. The location could not be better as it is so central to everything. Pamela & Constanza made us feel like old friends. They are quick to offer ideas for our stay and local secrets for great restaurants away from the crowds. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The red room is lovely and has good wifi

We had no clue when we booked this room what a wonder find it truely was. It is located in the centre of Florence. Carparking was available for an additional cost and the car was collected and returned with no inconvenience to ourselves trying to locate garage etc. This spot is surround by world famous galleries, museums and tourist sights. The girls were so helpful and we were delighted with the antique charm of our room. The stairs maybe difficult for travelers with ailments but they are only to the first floor where a lift takes you the remainder of the way. Would definitely stay again. Can not wait to visit Florence again it was a magical city and a great place to enjoy part of our honeymoon.

Room Tip: Pay for the triple room to have views of the square.

Dear Customers I'm Pamela thank you very much for your appreciations. We are no so much visible and famous but really simple and friendly. We like welcome our customers and feel them as in their home, but in Florence!! :-)) This is what all my regular customers tell me when they come back: "let's go back to our house in florence!!"
Our parkings affiliated are very good and cheap because first of all they are so close to us and after they transfer the car to the parking for you at the same price. So the service is complete. Our position is really in the heart of the city center, near all the main historical attractions, for this reason our building is very ancient (800 a.c.) and so we couldn't have the elevator down at the ground floor, but before it there are 30 steps. Thanks for pointing out the atmosphere in our rooms and for your words for Costanza's and my work to welcome you. I hope to meet you again in Antica Torre and in Florence. Bye!! ;-))
