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

We seized upon a chess set from another couple who were clearly courting and loving the European ambience. To make the game interesting we reveresed the board part way through. Then in our corner we were joined by 2 couples who ended up settling a dispute about a nuanced rule. ...
Our next stop was Pisa, where the world famous Tower of Pisa is located. Just before we arrived at the parking lot for tour buses, Ryan warned us about making any illegal purchases from the Africans soliciting at the parking lot. It is illegal to buy from illegal immigrants and to buy imitation brand name products here in Italy. If caught, the penalty is 500 Euros. Actually Ryan wasn’t worried that we’d be caught ...
