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.

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.

My wife and I spent a week here about 8 years ago. I returned in July 2020 while on business travel. Happy to say the Antica Torre is still a gem in Florence. Each room has a unique character, but all are clean and fully equipped with every comfort. Windows look out onto the Arno river, with the famous Ponte Vecchio visible just downstream. The rooftop terrace is a great place for a 360 view of the city. The Antica Torre is an easy walk from the train station and all the major sights. Finally, the staff are warm and helpful. We hope to return soon!

We loved this hotel. The room was spacious and had an amazing view of the Arno. The roof top areas offered spectacular views of the Duomo and the Arno. The breakfast was exceptional! The staff was very helpful throughout our stay and even opened breakfast early for us one morning so that we could make an early pick up for a wine tour.

Perfectly situated. Freindly staff. Room spacious and comfortable.Not for people who want modern design but for people who appreciate the atmosphere of an old building tastefully furnished. Magnificen terasses, but very anoying doves.

Dear 101Michaela1960 thank you so much for posting here your suggestions and feelings regarding your recent stay at the Antica Torre. We try always our best to protect our terraces from the doves but nature is stronger than human tricks to make them stay apart.
