One of the best
Fantastic hotel: great location overlooking the Arno river with the most attentive service I’ve ever received. As someone who typically prefers modern hotels, I was very impressed by Hotel Principe—they have kept the classic architecture/furnishings very well maintained and sparkling clean while incorporating modern convenience (elevator, speedy WiFi). Staying here feels like taking a luxury vacation in an old-school movie. Definitely recommend.
