Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Privilege Florence
Its a Priviledge
This Hotel is just getting better all the time, they now have a tea and coffee tray in the rooms which is great and very unusual for Italian hotels. Fluffy toweling robes, monogramed slippers and the nicest staff ever. 10-15mins Flat walking along the River Arno to the Ponte Vechio and a great breakfast. We were sad to leave and will be back again.
Excellent stay at Hotel Privilege
My husband and I visited Florence for the first time in July, 2005. We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Privilege. The couple that operated the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The room and bed were confortable. It was about a 15 minute walk to the city center, but we did not mind the walk because the city is so beautiful. We stayed there in July which is typically very hot and our room air conditioner did not cool off quite to American standards, but was still confortable. We would stay there again and would certainly recommend the hotel.
We loved this hotel! The place in general was average but our room was gorgeous (just down from reception). It was spacious, with a tv, a sofa and air con in there! Although we would have liked a view of the river Arno but we didn't get one. The bathroom was lovely and big with lots of towels and the bed was very comfy! It was in a great location too by the river, which made a nice walk at the end of a day.
It is within walking distance of the Piazza Della Signoria but I would recommend getting a taxi to see Michelangelo's David (taxis are cheap). We found Florence to be the type of place where you don't mind walking everywhere because it is so beautiful and whenever you turn a corner there always seems to be something worth seeing there!
Florence really is a lovely place and my boyfriend and I did not mind walking around late at night as we felt quite safe compared to some other cities.
We had wonderful time at the hotel really. Fornt desk gentleman is funny, friendly and kind. He helped to search our next destination(siena). In the morning he prepared breakfast which was the most fabulous breakfast in our three weeks trip in Italy. Room is big and clean. We will definitely stay the Hotel when we visit Florence again.
Hotel Privilege, what a privilege
The hotel was great. I had the best time there. The room service was wonderful!! And its within walking distance of EVERYTHING. It's also right in front of the river. Very Nice

WELL THIS ENTRY DISAPPEARED. SO I GUESS I WILL JUST REWRITE IT.
According to our hostess, the unseasonably warm temperature is supposed
to actually become fall sometimes soon. According to weather reports,
it's supposed to storm on Sunday. So we decided to go take a walk in the
Boboli gardens (and the Bardini, though that was at the end and not

... It was really pretty. Just a shame though that we were on a main road and couldn’t really pull off the road to take a good picture.
We arrived in Florence just after midday and on the way to our campsite we came across a big piazza and parking area that had a beautiful view over the city. We later found out this was the relatively famous Piazzale Michelangelo. It was a breathtaking view over the city and to see the iconic Duomo the ...
... and the Boboli Gardens behind it, a cool place on a hot summer's day. It is a wonderful art museum housed in the large palazzo built by the Pitti family in the 15th century and then sold to the Medici when the Pittis ran out of money. I then had lunch at Sagrestia, on the same street as the Pitti, but towards the Ponte Vecchio. My first wife, Wendy, and I used to eat there all the time, so I was a bit sad. I then went across the river to the Science Museum, which ...
