Soggiorno Antica Torre overlooks the plaza shared by Plazzo Vecchio and Loggia dei Lanzi, one of the most significant public places in Italy. Our family shared the very spacious, clean and comfortable GOLD ROOM, with a king bed and large sitting area, and a second sleeping area with a twin bed. Our bathroom has a wonderful soaking tub and separate shower. We enjoyed spectacular views of the plaza with magnificent statues, as well as the top of the Duomo, which was only a few blocks from us. We appreciated the very short walk to the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. Breakfast is an option, but we wanted an early start each day, so we chose to have our morning meals at local cafes. Our wonderfully friendly hosts were very helpful in making suggestions and supplied a map to help us find our way. We enjoyed our stay here very much. 30 steps from street level to elevator was the only draw back to staying here. I hope to return and I highly recommend this wonderful "home away from home" in Florence.

Room Tip: the gold room offers amazing views

The room where you stayed is the jewel in the crown, despite all our rooms are very spacious and individually decorated, because it is huge and richly decorated and can offer a beautiful view on the square.

My wife and I stayed here for the location. In a residential area, yet only a few blocks from everything, Service was excellent as the staff worked hard to make our room clean and comfortable. Breakfast was served every morning and included eggs, fruit, cheese, meat and rolls. We stayed in the back room and it was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Thank you again for all your help with restaurant choices and knowledge of the city.

A perfect location in Florence, right on Piazza della Signoria. Big, nice room, WiFi, friendly, helpful people. Stayed for four nights. Advice: Go out for breakfast if you are hungry. The one included is so-so.

Our room did not overlook the Piazza Signoria, but we were happy it didn't because we were able to keep our window open and not be bothered by the noise. As a result, the view was non-existent. Access to the rooms required a walk up multiple flights of stairs. There is no one to help if you cannot make the climb with luggage. Upon arrival, we were frustrated by the absence of identification of the location. Proprietors from a restaurant next door called the B&B for assistance because the hotel is not staffed after 1:00 PM. We attempted to communicate with someone on an intercom but our Italian skills didn't measure up. The street numbers were very confusing. Residences are in black or blue and businesses are in red. When you see the number 3 on different buildings, side-by-side, it can be extremely confusing. Our room was very clean and the bathroom was oversized by European standards. Its entrance faced the common area of the B&B, but we did not notice excessive noise from conversation. We were given access to the Internet, and the front desk personnel obtained reservations for us at restaurants and local points of interest; however, they were only available until 1:00 PM. They also offered a recommended list of restaurants which we found to be spot on. When we wandered from their recommendation, we were disappointed. As a courtesy, we were able to leave our luggage after check-out while we completed our sight seeing. They offered a public restroom which allowed us to refresh before traveling elsewhere. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: A room in the back would be the most quiet.

We went to Florence recently and stayed at the Soggiorno Antica Torre. We had a fantastic time!
The accommodation was very clean, owners of the hotel were friendly and extremely helpful with assisting us with finding laundry mats and recommendations for restaurants.
Location of the hotel was so convenient as it was right in front of the Piazza Soggiorno, where it was walking distance to all the famous sites as well as restaurants and shopping!
Would highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: We stayed in the Red rooms which was sufficient for us

This was our 2nd visit to Italy and just as on our 1st trip last year to Rome we appreciated the airy rooms with large windows in the older buildings letting in the fresh October air during our comfortable three night stay. Pamela and staff do anything they can to make for a pleasant stay. The hotel is centrally located and our room overlooked the Piazza Signoria. As in Rome you will want to close the windows when turning in for the night as the Piazza can get noisy. We were three weeks in Tuscany and one regret we have is not staying longer in Florence. After visiting the Uffizi and the Accademia Gallery you've really only had the surface of Florence. When planning our trip it turned out that Saturday nights were particularly hard to book so were only able to reserve only thru Friday. Thanks to Pamela and Costanza for a wonderful stay. Next time we'll plan a longer stay. Also to note: the restaurants located right on the Piazza are pretty good, not just for tourists.
