My husband and I just returned from 7 nights stay at this beautiful hotel. The room was well appointed, the balcony was really nice....the open windows at nights listening to the opera and the street sounds was unbelievable. The rooftop bar was great. The staff was awesome. The breakfast room was beautiful and food was well presented and very tasteful. We will definitely return to this hotel

We enjoyed our time in Florence very much and the Hotel Degli Orafi was the perfect place to stay and experience Florence. It is in a wonderful location, on the river and next to the Uffizi Galleries. From the hotel you could walk to all the sites and neighborhoods and we never took a cab or public transportation.
Our room was beautiful and comfortable. It was a loft bedroom with a small sitting area downstairs and the bed upstairs. My only concern was that the bathroom was downstairs and at night the spiral staircase was bit tricky. Certainly not a room for the handicapped.
Breakast was served in a beautiful room with views of Florence from both windows. It was a sumptuous buffet with a wonderful selection of everything from meats and cheeses to fruits and youghurt. One of the highlights of the hotel is the rooftop patio where we spent many evenings having a glass of wine and taking in the view.
Staff were helpful and accommodating. They booked all my restaurant reservations in advance.
I would put this at the top of my list of where to stay in Florence.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your wonderful comments following your recent stay with us,they are very much appreciated! It is wonderful to read that you were satisfied with our hotel and that you found our central location convenient for discovering this beauitful city!
It is great to hear that you liked your Junior Suite room with a loft and separate living area. These 3 rooms are unique and decorated in their own style with a beautiful ceiling. Do not worry about the disabled guest, we can accomodate them too in our spacious handicapped rooms. I am proud to know that the breakfast choice was to your satisfactory and that you loved this little jewel, once a ancient ballroom. The Roof top bar is a little get away from the busy life of Florence so I am happy you liked it!
The entire team is looking forward to your next visit to Florence!

Warm regards,
Rossella Nelli

This hotel has the best location in the city. My husband and I very much enjoyed our "room with a view" of the Arno and Ponte Vecchio. It is also very close to the Uffizi and Plaza Della Signoria. The staff was really amazing. They assisted us with every detail. We will definitely return to this hotel.

We were not disappointed by this hotel. It has a great location between the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio and is just beautiful inside. We were lucky enough to have a room facing the Arno River. The staff are very helpful and the rooftop bar was lovely. Our room was very well appointed, clean and comfortable with a very large bathroom. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay again on our next trip to Florence. Its location is superb for all sightseeing.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the Arno River

We stayed for four nights in room 414 which is the room that featured in the film A Room with a View. I'm not sure where in the film it featured as the main scene with George and Lucy is clearly filmed from the opposite side of the river but the room certainly has a magnificent view. The room itself was very good and has a lovely bathroom. The terrace is amazing - very large with seating for five and looking directly out onto the Arno and the Ponte Vechio. If you are looking for a romantic break in an amazing city this is the place to stay. No where is very far away in Florence but the Degli Orafi is particularly well placed with major attractions such as the Uffizi, Duomo, Ponte Vechio and Piazza della Signoria a stones throw away. The breakfast room is incredible and the bar has wonderful views of the Arno and the Duomo. The service was excellent - the bar staff are very good and the reception staff very helpful. They booked us into local restaurants and provided maps and advice. (we particularly enjoyed the fish restaurant Aroma) The room had a basket of fruit and a bottle of bubbly when we arrived and my wife received a rose on her birthday. I thought the small details such as the sweets and tomorrows weather report left on the turndown service were nice touches. Others have mentioned the firm beds and the quirky lift but these just add to the charm of the place.

This hotel was really lovely. The rooms were very Italian in décor, clean and well serviced. Staff were very helpful and courteous. We visited the bar/restaurant upstairs and were very well looked after by the barman. We were close to shops, restaurants, markets and the city was beautiful.

This is the perfect hotel for me.
I love when a hotel perfectly represents my fantasy about the country that I'm visiting.
The Hotel Degli Orafi is old world elegance, without a hint of stuffiness or neglected age. It's fresh and comfortable, and seems like it could be of a bygone era when quality really came into the equation in a hotel stay.
What I mean is that everything, from the bed linens to the breakfast is reliably well chosen. I felt truly comfortable and delighted with the whole place.
The bonus is the location, steps away from the Ponte Vecchio. The rooftop bar has these windows that frame the most beautiful vistas in both directions. You'll see. It will take your breath away. The man who was working there was so friendly and accommodating, and we had a fantastic sandwich and a beer when we arrived at the hotel in the late afternoon.

Room Tip: We asked for a view but none was available when we made our reservation. When we checked in we had a...
