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
My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Pierre. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and our room was beautiful! We enjoyed the delicious breakfast every morning and we appreciated the welcome glass of wine that we received with our vacation package. We selected this hotel because of its great location and we were so thankful that we could walk everywhere we wanted to visit in Florence. Overall, we highly recommend this hotel!!! Grazie!
This hotel made us feel extremely welcome.
It is very well appointed being close to restaurants and tourist attractions.
Nothing Wass too much trouble for them.
The room was clean and spacious.
With its central location, comfortable rooms and attention to detail, Hotel Pierre in Florence, Italy, is a wonderful place to relax. The morning breakfast buffet is served on the 4th floor and from our table, we had a (partial) view of the dome of the Duomo. The Duomo was an easy 5 minute walk, the Academia Museum was a 10 minute walk, the Palazzo Vecchio was about an 8 minute walk and the Ponte Vecchio Bridge was about a 12 minute walk.
The aforementioned breakfast buffet was well prepared and nicely presented with many choices for visitors from all backgrounds. The rooms had a bathtub with a shower head and the towels were large and soft. The bed and pillows were comfortable and provided restful sleep. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Upon check-in, I recommend you reserve one of their free GPS phones. It will provide turn-by-turn directions to sites and allows free phone calls back to the USA. Again, the central location of the hotel was a real advantage.
We took the 2.5 hour nighttime Segway tour (tons of fun!) and the Segway office was just down the street from the Hotel Pierre at Via dei Cimatori 9 Red. A wonderful sandwich shop, the I' Girone De' Ghiotti at Via de Cimatori 23/R is an easy 4 minute walk One of the best wine shops in Florence, Enoteca Pontevecchio, at Corso dei Tintori, 21r is about a 14 minute walk. And the Basilica Santa Croce (a Florence must see) is just up the hill from this wine/balsamic vinegar/olive oil shop.
Based on our stay, I know you will enjoy your time at the Hotel Pierre. The accommodations, the service and the location helped make our time in Florence as wonderful as expected! (And thank-you Costco Travel Services for your partnership with the Hotel Pierre!)
This hotel is situated right in the middle of Florence. Walking distance to all attractions. 15 minutes walk to the train station and 30 minutes to the bus station. Hotel offers a great blast buffet with the absolutely delicious croissant. Large bathroom and spacious room. Hotel is very nice with marble floor and walls.
Our party of three booked two inter-connecting rooms for a two night stay. Both rooms were large, with sitting chairs and plenty of room for luggage, and plenty of natural light. The rooms were very clean, with good sized, clean bathrooms and were serviced daily.
The breakfast served on level 4 was plentiful and tasty. Be sure to ask the staff to make you a cappuccino - they will gladly do this for you and they are WAY better than the coffees from the coffee machine.
All staff, from check-in to house-keeping to waiters, were incredibly helpful, friendly and professional and all spoke English very well.
The best thing though is the location. You are within 5 minutes of the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Vecchio. You are surrounded by retail shops, restaurants and bars. Everything you need or want to see is right at your doorstep! This is insane! You are literally within the heart of Florence, in an elegantly appointed Gothic style hotel, with fabulous staff to assist you. What more could you ask for?
