Royal Victoria Review

In a pleasant palazzo facing the Arno, a 10-minute walk from the Campo dei Miracoli, room styles range from the 1800s, complete with frescoes, to the 1920s; the most charming are in the old tower. This comfortably furnished old place has been in the Piegaja family since 1837, and the continuity may help explain why such notables as Charles Dickens and Charles Lindbergh enjoyed staying here. Cocktails are served in the pretty rooftop garden.

    Old-fahioned and comfy

    If it's character you are after and not slick mod cons, the Royal Victoria is the place. Excellent view over the river, helpful staff,
