Set in a stunning 13th-century building in Italy’s enchanting city of Florence, Hotel Pierre boasts a covetable address right in the historic city center – just moments from Palazzo Strozzi and the breathtaking Florence Cathedral. Here, you can get lost in the cobblestone streets and grand piazzas where the likes of Dante, Machiavelli and Michelangelo once stood. Don’t let the neighborhood or the hotel’s centuries-old facade fool you, though – once you step inside this four-star property, things get decidedly luxurious.
This elegant hotel has everything you need for a sumptuous stay. You’ll find a lovely breakfast room stocked with homemade pastries, fruit and plenty of coffee (it’s the Italian way), and your bedroom is a cool and airy retreat, decked out with antique furniture, parquet floors and lovely big windows. When the time comes to explore your beautiful surroundings, there’s a concierge on hand to assist you with anything from shopping and dining suggestions to vineyard tours of Florence’s famous Chianti area. How’s that for la dolce vita?
Superior Double rooms are spacious and elegantly decorated, with wooden floors and impressive marble bathrooms. The rooms offer views out over the courtyard or the Via dei Lamberti.
Start your day with a rich selection of fresh fruits, homemade pastries, cereals, yogurt and eggs, served-up in the brand-new and tastefully designed breakfast room. The hotel also features a bar, perfect for a refreshing cocktail or evening glass of wine.
Known as the Cradle of the Renaissance, Florence is a lasting monument to Italy’s golden age of art and architecture. It’s here you’ll see Micheangelo’s David, Giotto’s Campanile and the dome of the famous Duomo rising above the city skyline. You’ll find most of the city’s must-sees within a short walk of your front door, including the Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and the Galleria dell’Accademia.
How to Get There
I spent 3 nights in this hotel and felt very comfortable and welcome at all times. The location of the hotel between the famous Ponte Vecchio and Florence Cathedral could not be better. The central Piazza della Repubblica is just around the corner. The train station or airport tram T2 (Fare is 1.50 Euros) is 12 minutes on foot.
The large entrance area of the hotel with reception, bar and lobby is beautiful. The breakfast buffet (7-10 o'clock) in the large and nicely furnished breakfast room on the fourth floor was varied and good. There are cold and warm dishes. Let the coffee bring you from the kitchen. The coffee machine did not taste that good.
By the way, you can reach Pisa, Bologna or Siena in less than 1 hour by train from Florence (Fare about 15 Euros return).
The friendliness of the hotel staff has impressed me; I would book it again!
My mom and I had an enjoyable and relaxing four-night stay at the Hotel Pierre in Florence. The location is perfect- close to all the sights, restaurants, and shopping. It was wonderful to be on the fourth floor, conveniently next to the breakfast room so we did not have to rush in the mornings. The croissants (creme and chocolate) offered were delicious as was the Italian coffee freshly made by the breakfast staff. The rooms were lovely, elegantly furnished and clean with the best, thickest and fluffiest towels! My mom still talks about how nice they were. All the hotel staff and employees were gracious, thoughtful, and so kind. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Florence and highly recommend this beautiful hotel.
Close to everything, great amenities, breakfast hard boiled eggs need some more work, they were not really done right. Chocolate croissants were delicious! Bed was comfortable. Very short walk to the train station.
