“Super view and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2011

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during our touristic visit. First of all, Florance is really a wonderful city to visit with its rich history and architectural beauty. This hotel fits so well with the soul of the city. Wonderful views overlooking the bridge, and a central location in the middle of the city. Our room was very nice with modern amenities and classical decor. The bathroom was huge.
Breakfast was good enough with cold and hot selections. The service was good also. One downside of the hotel, the elevator was very slow, but it did not bother us.
Overall, a perfect stay for my purpose.

We stayed at Degli Orafi for 4 nights in September 2011 and could not have been more pleased with it. Concierages were uniformly friendly and helpful, offered good advice. Breakfast was great. Turndown service each evening. Room was spotless. Bed very firm. Marble bathroom had a rather small shower but otherwise was superior. Room had sophisticated keycard-based electronic system for security, lights, and AC. Location was superior: next door to Uffizi, about 100 feet from Ponte Vecchio, 10-15 minutes walk for most sights. Staff made reservations for us for Uffizi and Accademia; also for various restaurants and taxi services. If we ever return to Florence, I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to friends traveling to Florence.

First the location is prime - on the Auno River, next door to the Uffizi, and 1 block from the Ponte Vecchio,

We don't know how, but ended up with a luxury apartment in the hotel that was spacious and very nice. It was great to come back from our day and hang out with our friends in the living room.

The front desk was very helpful. They arranged our visit to the Accademie so we didn't have to wait in the long line, which is only one example of the great service.

Room Tip: Find out if you can get a luxury apartment We don't know how we got it, but would definitely re...

I stayed for 2 nights in May 2010 and would definitely stay again. The room was a small suite, very modern, good closet and a safe for one's passport, very nice bathroom, small but comfortable bed. I felt safe there as a woman traveling alone. Nice breakfast in a beautiful breakfast room, and I had dinner the second night in their restaurant on the top floor, with a view facing the Duomo. Breathtaking.

Room Tip: I booked on-line and they confirmed very promptly.

We stayed at this hotel for five days, incorporating a visit to Florence with some days trips as well. The hotel and the room we had were wonderful. We would have liked the staff to be a little more helpful in terms of providing more detailed information regarding getting us taxis, providing helpful suggestions for sightseeing, etc. When we would ask about these things we would get a short one word answer that really was not very helpful and it wasn't given with any sense of courtesy. We also felt like we had to pay for every service - for instance, we had decided to enjoy the rooftop terrace one evening to blog with family online and were informed that normally terrace guests had to purchase drinks. We could understand that - but we were paying for five nights ion the hotel, had used the terrace every night and on this particular night no one was in need of the table we were at. That was a bit aggravating for us, but overall the hotel was fine.

A truly wonderful, friendly, lovely hotel. Right on the Arno and near the Uffizzi, but so quiet and serene inside. My room was a single, and faced the inside courtyard, but it was so peaceful and decorated with a very comfortable small bed, a reading chair and light, lovely prints and a marble bath. Everything was spotless and the room was perfectly cleaned each day when I went out. Breakfast was a highlight, in a lovely room with frescoes and a view, with professional and friendly servers, and such wonderful food! I would never stay anywhere else in Florence! It was perfect.

Room Tip: My single faced the back and was small but very cozy and peaceful and beautiful. Everything I needed...

The Hotel Degli Orafi in Florence (Firenze) is a gem. We pushed the boat out for a 7-night stay in the "Room with a View" (Room 414) and can thoroughly recommend it. The staff were friendly and professional, the breakfasts generous with a wide range of food served in a dining room with a stunning ceiling and overlooking the river. The hotel's central location means a significant number of the city's churches, galleries and museums are within 10-15 minutes' relaxed walk. Our room was comfortable, quiet at night with the windows closed and the efficient air-conditioning on. Both the room and the splendid marble bathroom were kept spotlessly clean. The bar terrace immediately above gives great views over the Duomo. A memorable visit in an excellent hotel. No wonder the "Room with a View" was used for the film.

Room Tip: Room 414 chooses itself!
