The 5th generation of hoteliers is running this family owned 20 rooms old style hotel. We were given a room with terrace overlooking the Arno. Simpy ideal. Clean room with all the expected facilities (TV, fridge). I am not sure about aircon (the top floor, 4th, rooms might be hot in summer, right under the roof). Spacious and well functionning bathroom. Very friendly and helpful personnel. Excellent buffet breakfast for this category of hôtel, attended by efficient staff from the Philippines. Comfortable lobby. It has definitely an oldish style and decoration, which has its charm. Very well located at the edge of the traffic limited zone, close to the centre. Has a parking in the garden which is most appreciated. Excellent wifi (each floor has its own). Overall excellent price/ quality.

Room Tip: In summer, make sure 4th floor romms have aircon. Go for a Arno view room.

We stayed at Principe Hotel for 2 nights during an Italy trip for our honeymoon. Our room was beautiful - king size bed, large tub/shower. The hotel graciously gave us a room with a balcony overlooking the Arno and flowers for our honeymoon. Definitely something that we very much appreciated! The breakfast was beyond expectations. There was an assortment of breads, meat and cheeses, jams/jellies, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee/tea and an assortment of fresh juices. They also offered cheese omelets or fried eggs on request. The omelet was very good. It really was quite a substantial spread. Cappuccino and expresso were also available on request. The location was superb. Aside from the location right on the river - it was within walking distance of most things. Less than a block away is a bus stop for the C3 and D mini-buses that can take you anywhere. Front desk staff was helpful and very nice. There is an elevator. Overall this was a great hotel and a great location.

Our second stay in Hotel Principe re-inforced our view from our first stay, in 2008, that this is the best place to stay in Florence. With great views of the river Arno and the south side of Florence, the hotel is located within easy walking distance to the centre, and easily accessible by car. This family-owned hotel provides excellent and welcoming service amidst a historical setting that gives a sense of the real Florence. The rear garden was a green oasis that our three-year old loved. Highly recommended.

This hotel was just wonderful. Overlooking the Arno River. My husband and I stayed here for several nights. The room was beautiful. Nicely decorated. Comfortable. There is an elevator. The staff were all professional, gracious, and accomodating. The breakfast buffet was simply delicious. Fresh fruit, meats, yogurt, breads, fresh juice, cappucinos.... Perfect. We walked everywhere from this hotel. Close enough to the train station, nice restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend.
