Hotel Principe

Hotel Principe, Tuscany Italy

★   ★   ★    ★

An appealing, high quality family-run option offering plenty of traditional Florentine charm and character in a pleasant – if a little removed – riverside location. The comfortable furnishings, relaxing garden and the intimacy of the communal areas lends more of a private residence-like feel to it.

Exterior

A narrow pleasant building with local-style ornate facade sandwiched between two larger offerings and a few steps up to the entrance.
