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.

... around 6:45pm. It was a fantastic view from the top as we caught our breath. Before the tour wrapped up and we headed back in the bus to Florence we were treated to a mini train ride around Pisa town. Olivia continued her description of the surroundings as she had done so well all day. We didn't realise Pisa was so big and had so much else going on other than a leaning tower. The bus ride back down the motorway to Florence ...
... in 45 yrs when I was here- the few Greek and Roman sculptures and the Medieval and early Renaissance works with a only a few absolute stand-outs and some gorgeous views through some windows. Wont even try to describe anything. The crowds were significant and I dove hither and thither against the tide (my nature, I guess) to avoid the worst of it.Hungry, arrived back home to tackle the dreaded Travel card issue, which on first try didn't ...
The Statue of David is 15ft tall and every bit as amazing. The hands and feet in particular are quite large. The statue of Neptune and 'the rape of the sabine women' were also among the many we had the pleasure of admiring and listening to the related history with our guide Francesca.
Our day began with a tour of the Accadamie, ...
... spent a bit of time up there and picked out the house we would like to live in.
We made it back to Florence with no trouble at all to find that our landlord, Stefan, had left us a bottle of Vinsanto and a bag of biscotti to say farewell.
This is our last night in Florence. We went back to the mozzarella bar, Obika, for a caprese salad and then to Venchi for a final gelati. Florence has been spectacular. It is a city of very flashy art and geat ...
... They were both really interesting and amusing to chat with. As the night went on the people around us got more drunk and annoying and I was too busy admiring the giant monuments and buildings to stay put in one place. I suggested to Daniel that we go on an adventure and we decided to walk around Florence on our own. First we went to the river and looked over the water at the beautiful bridges and buildings and sat for awhile just taking it all in. There is a little bridge in Florence ...
