Just perfect. Oozing ambiance, a stones throw from the Otrarno side of the Ponte Vecchio it is silent and authentic. Barely five minutes to the Uffizi. Luxury comfort, boutique bathrooms. Rooftop terrace offers awesome views. Our only reservation was that given the room price breakfast could and should have been included. It costs 10Euro a head which, if you're a...

We had a very good stay here. The layout is kinda odd but somehow adds to the charm of the hotel! We got a kick out of the small lift.

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance.
