Enchantment in Rm.22- "Room With A View" for Sgl Travler
Remember the movie, "Room with A View"? That's how I felt as I looked out over the steeples and rooftops (as well as the TB's roof garden) from my window. My room was small ( but then most are all over Italy) but spotless. The service was great, and the breakfast buffet larger than other places I stayed in Italy. I was totally enchanted! When I return to Florence, the TB will be my home once again. I hated leaving the place. If you are a single traveler, ask for Room 22!
My husband and two children had the good fortune to spend 3 days here in October 2003. The location was terrific and our room was superb. We had a one bedroom suite (the kids had extremely comfortable beds in the lounge room) with a huge bathroom and separate toilet. The room was spacious, clean and roomy and the hotel staff could not have been more helpful. We would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.
Great location and charm
We very much enjoyed our 2 nights at Beacci Tornabuoni in October 2003.
Our double room was incredibly spacious and charmingly yet simply decorated - the bathroom was also adequate size. We didn't have much of a view, though was somewhat nice not to be facing a busy street as the room was fairly quiet. Staff was very helpful and accomodating - definitely has a family-run feel. We had to cut our stay one day short due to a last-minute train strike and were relieved that they didn't give us any trouble because of it. They also recommended some excellent restaurants off the beaten path. The location of this hotel is perfect - right near the center of town and situatued on a very nice street.
The roof-top terrace is a wonderful and relaxing added bonus.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel just last month and were terribly disappointed. The warm friendly service we had heard about was nonexistent. The room was a decent size but the furniture very worn and the bathroom was incredibly cramped. They told us check out was noon so we came back from our morning stroll through Florence at 11:30 am, only to find the housekeeper had come into the room put our things aside and had made up the room for the next guest - we couldn't even use the bathroom in our own room before heading out for a 3 hour drive to Rome.
In fact, we told the front desk that our bathroom was occupied and we wished to use it quickly whereupon they directed us to the public facilities in the hallway! I will say that the accomodation was adequate and the location was good, but service definitely lacking.
Good service but room was small
The service was excellent but the room was quite small. Try and get rooms overlooking the street. Overall I would go again but get a supirior instead of a standard room
I don't get it
yes, the roof garden is lovely....but that was pretty much it. we had two different rooms because the front desk had made a mistake and they moved us while we were out. I didn't appreciate their going through our things and packing for us, not without prior notice. The rooms were both very spacious, but that's about it. I expected a lot more. the breakfast was ordinary, the service was allright, but we just didn't have a terrific feeling about the place, not what I had expected at all. wouldn't return, for that money, i know we could have done better elsewhere.
The charm of Firenze
The location is superb and the staff, most of whom have been at the Beacci for many years, are simply outstanding. When I think of Italy, I always think of the Beacci. (Since 1999, I have stayed numerous days at the hotel and will return again this fall.)
Stayed in room 21 on our honeymoon in early May, 2003. Very charming hotel in excellent location. Loved the garden terrace.
Old fashioned charm
This is a wonderfully calm. relaxing hotel on top of a grand old palace. The staff are charming, the furniture a comfortable mixture of antique and modern and the roof garden is the nicest place in Florence for an early evening drink. I'd come here again.
A Great Experience
Having tea and writing postcards on their stunning roof garden is probably my fondest memory of Florence. This hotel has a magnificent art collection, and a collection of guestbooks all signed by presidents, celebrities, diplomats, and many others who have stayed over the decades. The rooms are comfy, though they could use a few fresh decortive touches. The little nooks and rooms in the hotel give it an ambiance that can not be matched. Every time we walked through the halls it felt like an adventure. I really enjoyed my stay here and reccomend it highly to anyone who may be in Florence.

... in Florence. It had a stead stream of customers and it is sweet to see parents and grandparents taking children there for a special treat. The ice cream by the way was yummy. All of Edwardo's recommendations have been excellent. There is a restaurant right across the street which he says is very good, so I book a table. Before dinner we head back to last nights bar for a couple of sharpeners drinks. Well it would be rude not to. The restaurant is called ...
Ciao amici e la famiglia (friends and family)!
Today is Monday and we have just returned from an excursion to Cinque Terre, Lucca and Pisa.
Cinque Terre includes five villages on the coast of Italy; Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Rimomaggiore. We were lucky enough to spend a couple hours on the beautiful beach of Monterosso. The town alone is absolutely ...

The marble-tiled floor is full of grave markers, many of them with sculpted figures and epitaphs, and on both sides of the church are more elaborate funerary monuments. Notables such as Machiavelli, Rossini, Dante, Michelangelo, and Galileo are memorialized with elaborate marble monuments.
Several ornate side chapels display frescoes and other masterpieces by famous Renaissance masters. We spent ...
Second week of classes flew by! I can't believe I have lived here for almost a month already, it still doesn't seem real to me! I'm starting to finally get homework in all of my classes, but I keep telling myself that that's why I am over here, not just to have fun, drink wine, and travel. Tuesday night, our landlord Walter, who still has a freakish obsession with Stephanie, came over to collect our rent and brought us a bottle of limoncello, the drink of the Italians. I was ...
... tradtion of leatherworking, they are tucked away in an almost monastic looking complex hidden behind the church of Santa Croce. Here I got myself something that I had really wanted this whole trip- a nice Italian leather belt. The members of the school were very kind and helpful they adjusted the belt to fit me perfectly, monogramming it for me for free. They even added an embossed giglio for me, the symbol of the city with which I have fallen in love.
This whole experience ...
