Setting of E. M. Forster's Room with a View

Home to the famous ‘Room with a View’ and a charming terrace overlooking the Ponte Vecchio, this gorgeous boutique hotel is a 13th-Century residence in the heart of Florence that was originally built as an Augustine convent and retreat – the hotel even houses the remains of a medieval tower. Destroyed by the Ghibellini in 1260 and now partially restored, it adds to the charming character in this unique hotel. The breakfast room, with its 19th-Century frescoes and views of the River Arno, was once a ballroom and the beautiful roof garden bar and terrace is the perfect place to enjoy sundowners while admiring views over the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio. Cross the Ponte Vecchio to discover local attractions including the elegant Boboli Gardens and historic Pitti Palace.
