“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Just returned from a short stay in Florence, Italy. Flew in to Peratola airport Florence direct from London city airport with BA on an Embraer aircraft. Excellent plane, light, modern and spacious. Taxi ride to the hotel only approx 15 minutes and 24 euros. Stayed at the Hoel Degli Orafi. An excellent , small hotel which is very well managed. The room was on two levels with a lounge area and bathroom on the lower floor and the bedroom up a flight of stairs. The service and friendliness given and shown by the staff was excellent. Breakfast was very good with a large selection of food to choose from. There is a roof terrace and bar with views of the river and the Duomo where drinks and snacks of a good quality can be purchased. Once again the service from the staff in this area was excellent. The hotel is situated right next door to the Uffizi and a couple of minutes from the Ponte Vechio. All other attractions are within easy waking distance. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 108 was the room we stayed in which as stated in my review is on two levels. If you have diffic...

This hotel is located right next to Ponte Vecchio! It is a walking distance from all the famous places. The staff are nice, the rooms are very clean and large and the breakfast is simply awesome! When we go back we will definitely return to this hotel. We have been in Florence a lot, but never had a hotel is great as Hotel Degli Orafi. Of course I am talking about a 4 star hotels. I highly recommend this hotel!

Stayed at the Hotel Orafi for three nights on a short break in Florence - the location could not have been better. The Ponte Vecchio was about 20 yards away, the Ufizzi gallery was next door and the Piazza Signoria was right behind us. Rooms in the hotel were spacious and well equipped - a nice touch were the hotel-badged T shirts left in our room the first evening to sleep in! The rooftop bar is lovely and the staff in there very friendly and helpful - ask them for recommendations for local eateries off the main tourist area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Ponte Vecchio and Arno river.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The room we had (2nd floor...3rd to Americans) was very quiet...surprising for how close the hotel is to the busy tourist center. A wonderful perk each night was the turn down service. The breakfast room is gorgeous with lots of choices and the rooftop bar is a must see. I agree with the comments about the lift and if you are adverse to stairs, that would be the hotel's one negative feature.

Our spacious room overlooked the Ponte Vecchio. The view was amazing. The hotel was full of character and the staff were very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast In the spectacular dining room was buffet style and was very good. We spent a wonderful 4 days in Florence and must mention a restaurant called Il Latino - an experience not to be missed.

Booked the hotel for a short trip to Florence. I was worried about some of the posts regarding smells but we had no such issues.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the excellent staff at the roof top bar. The hotel location means you have easy access to the key locations whilst been far enough away to get a good nights sleep. The room itself was small but clean and air-conditioned, good for a short break but you'd probably want a bigger room for a longer stay. The only minor downside was the quirky lift, but you've really got to be nit picking if the lift-call is the worst criticism. I would recommend it.

We're given a spacious and clean room with partial view of the Arno. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Although the foyer is not grandiose, there's a nice sitting room on each floor. Breakfast was just as nice as the other hotels we'd stayed in Florence previously. This is a pleasant surprise. Great location, next to the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio.

Room Tip: Higher floors may have less street noise at night
