#22 of 429 in Florence
GreenLeaders Silver level
We personally enjoy welcoming our guests, we wish to reinvent the concept of hospitality, and we have the inspiration to provide the warmth of home in every detail. This is how the Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni 1, Florence came to be: a tower-house built in the mid-12th century by the Guelph family of Ruggerini. At the beginning of the 20th century, this palace became "Pensione Piccioli," and quickly turned into a privileged residence for aristocrats and English writers. Closed after the Great War, Pensione Piccioli reopened in 2001, as a Period Residence called "Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni 1." Thanks to attentive restoration to preserve all its original charm, the evocative ambiance of the Palace on Via Tornabuoni has regained life and warmth. This magnificent complex is considered one of the typical "tower-houses" of Mediaeval Florence, and, to this day, it still preserves all its characteristic architectural elements: it is an admirable example of the human ability to convert buildings built for war into oases of peace, culture and hospitality. In this ancient tower, we have created a world of harmony, privacy, and attentiveness to our guests' needs. Luxury, peace, and beauty are all in traditional Italian style, and give the concept of comfort new aesthetics. Almost all rooms enjoy an enchanting view of the city or the Arno River, and all are furnished with the highest in comfort: satellite plasma TVs, DVD players, wireless internet connection, direct line telephone, minibar, electronic safe, air conditioning and heating, private marble bath with tub and/or shower, hair dryer, slippers and shoehorns. Some of the Rooms and Suites are decorated with a Renaissance flair: with frescoes, drapes in coloured precious fabrics, bathrooms in red Alcantara or Gold Calacatta marble, and romantic four poster beds.

Value for price, location: excellent. The terrace is opened 24/7 with a bar and becomes and extension of your room which we loved. The only big improvement has to be the water pressure in the shower: way too low great bathroom and bathroom amenities meanwhile) Excellent service. Will definitely go back.

Gorgeous, classic hotel with attentive staff. Restaurant recommendations were superb and staff helpfully made reservations for us. Before dinner drinks on the terrace were great, along with the incredible views of the city. A special shout-out for the delicious "Sunset" cocktail with fresh passion fruit created by bartender Ranjula! Beds were super comfortable, shades darkened the rooms for sleeping, and the river views from our room were amazing. Highly recommend this hotel.

If there was an option for 4 1/2 stars, we would give it! :) Fantastic service, excellent breakfast, comfortable and well-appointed room, phenomenal location - close but not too close to the center… Incredible two-way rooftop bar/terrace - one side with sunset view over Arno, the other with postcard view of Duomo… The only issue was the bathroom - small space, bathtub with handheld shower nozzle was not luxurious, but not unusual for Europe… Half star off for that, but everything else was tremendous - highly recommend.

This hotel is ideally situated for exploring Florence. We only stayed one night, but will definitely return. The room was spotless, well decorated, good bathroom, well lit, comfy bed - excellent quality. Breakfast was good, no cooked food but plenty of everything. We were helped with the booking process by Mika, who was endlessly helpful and prompt. We will be recommending this charming hotel to everyone wanting a quality place to stay in Florence, with a fabulous view and great location. Next time we will stay longer!

It’s an old hotel, interesting that it shares some floors with offices but that detract from the splendour of this hotel. We never saw anybody apart from the receptionist ( who was brilliant) but is obviously due to Covid to a large extent. Beautifully appointed rooms with stunning views of Florence. Highly recommended to have a drink on the top terrace for some of the best views of the Duomo. Also, because the hotel is so old, make sure you run the water at least 5 minutes before you need a shower, as I said, quirky.
