Historical Traveler Reviews Pierre Hotel Florence
Loved Hotel Pierre!!
We absolutely loved this Hotel. The location was fabulous, the rooms were very nice, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Very highly recommend staying here.
Perfect location, beautiful room, great price.
My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Pierre in March, 2004. This hotel is ideally located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the center of the city. The hotel personnel are very friendly and helpful. They willingly made numerous telephone calls for our dinner and museum reservations and to help us with our car rental. The room was very charming (parquet floors, artistic lithographs on walls), clean, and was quiet in spite of the central location. The bathroom was small and lacked a bathtub but the shower was fine. There was no view since we were off the street. The room rate was an amazing bargain for Florence. I would highly recommend this establishment.
Very nice hotel and great location.
The Pierre is a great hotel for touring and staying in Florence. The location is especially great about this hotel. It is ony a 5 minute walk to the Pointe Vecchio and in the other direction a 5 minute walk to the Baptistry and Dumo. The hotel itself is a very clean and pleasant hotel. The staff warmly greets you and the rooms are a decent size. We had reserved a triple room and were accomadated with a deluxe room with a two twins and a roll away. It was very comfortable. The bathroom was decorated in marble and had a shower. The bathroom was a bit narrow but was still manageable. The hotel included breakfast in our rate and was served in a traditional European style breakfast room. Breads, pastry, fruit and yogurt was available with juice and coffee. There was a small lobby bar off to the side of the lobby and drinks were served before dinner hours. We really enjoyed this hotel and would stay here again.
Location, location, location and very nice hotel
As in above reviews the Hotel Pierre's location can't be beat. Easy walking distance to all of the major sites. It is also within easy walking distance to the train station for easy and inexpensive daytrips to Sienna, Pisa and other parts of Tuscany. The hotel was also very nice. Charming room (room 105) with big beautiful windows. The bathroom was large and gorgeous. We got a great deal on the room at lastminute.com (breakfast included). Highly recommended!!! You will love Florence and this hotel.
Stayed 3 nights starting 11/6/2003. Located near the Piazza Republica, many shops, restaurants and markets nearby. We stayed in a large, clean and attractive room with renovated washroom. The washroom was large, but the shower stall was narrow. Heated towel racks were greatly appreciated, especially for lite laundry.
The breakfast room was charming and the buffet was tasty. The hotel staff was courteous and helpful.
No safe in the rooms--we used the Hotel safe.
Most attractions were within walking distance.
Would stay there again. PG
Fantastic hotel located in the historic center of Florence. Walking distance to all major sights in the city. Staff was exceptionally helpful, recoomending good neighborhood restaurants and places to visit. Room was large, clean and bathroom had heated towel racks. Would definitely recommend.
We stayed at The Pierre, October 27-30, 2003. Very elegant hotel with a great location. Rooms are in wood and marble. The breakfast is Italian style and nicely done. The staff spoke english and was very helpful. An added plus is the heated towel racks in the bathroom. We used them to dry our washed clothes after 10 days on the road.
Highly recommend this hotel
Excellent location, but just decent hotel
My family and I stayed at the Pierre from September 7-13th 2003. Our overall conclusion was that the hotel's location was fabulous and hard to beat. If renovated and nice bathrooms as well as good service make a hotel for you, then you should by all means stay at the Pierre.
However, if any of the following are more important to you: a) good food for breakfast or eating in a room with windows b) hotel rooms with good light c) soft bedding d) more than one english tv channel e) room service
then try sompelace else. Perhaps the location justifies the money for this place, but the inadequate breakfasts, the sense of claustraphobia from all of the rooms, and the scratchy and stiff sheets make me want to at least try finding someplace else nearby.
Great Small Hotel
What a gem. The location could not have been better. It was walking distance to everything. It was clean and the staff was very helpful with directions and recommendations for restaurants. We will stay here again when we go back to Florence. We truly loved this place.Joan
Loved the Pierre
We stayed at the Pierre Sep 25-28, 2002. This is a very lovely hotel, with a convenient location. Stayed on window side of the hotel (105 with 2 sets of double windows). It is quaint, yet upgraded and classy. The breakfast for a 5 euro charge was excellant. The staff was friendly and helpful. Room was very nice and comfortable. Bathroom large and well laid out. Others we spoke to at the hotel were also happy with their rooms. We have also stayed at the Hermitage and the Savoy in Florence, and the Pierre, at less than half the cost of the Savoy, would definitely be my choice of those three. Gary O., Toledo, OH.

The Basilica di Santa Croce (Basilica of the Holy Cross) is a minor (by definition only, trust us) Basilica of the Catholic Church. The church construction began in 1297, with much financing provided by a wealthy early patron family known as di Cambio. As with many projects, the church took many years to build and was consecrated in 1442 by the …
Today we have two tours - the morning is based on Dan Brown's Inferno Novel, but just in terms of using the historic places used by Dan Brown in his book, which, not surprisingly, are the most famous places in Florence - this tour was led by a guide named Mario, who was a great tour guide but you could tell not a huge Dan Brown fan. We thought it …
Today we had a relaxing morning and took a leisurely walk to meet our guide, Chiara, for a private walking tour around Florence. Chiara studied art history and has been giving tours of Florence for 19 years. Another amazing tour guide, who speaks Italian, English, French, Spanish, and German (though she doesn't give tours in German, she admitted) …
We arrived in Florence and my usual expert navigation led us to our hotel (The Hotel Pierre) after about a 20 minute walk. The front desk clerk, Lucia, is one of the most bubbly, friendly people we have met so far on our trip. We had some good laughs at the check in and then she offered us the nice surprise of an upgraded room, which is quite large …
... of tea until the rain subsided. After an hour, it was still torrential outside so we thought we’d pass the time by having lunch.
A good idea one would have thought. Except muggins here ordered a burger, which one would think would be quite harmless. Except that the Italians, very much like the French, cook their burgers as one would cook steak. So ours were served up bloody and rare. I will quite happily eat my steak like that but burgers are a ...
