“Beautiful hotel in the perfect position”
Reviewed 25 March 2009

This hotel ,although expensive as all of Florence is, was beautiful. I thought I had requested a room facing the Ponte Vecchio and at first was dissapointed that we didn't get one but our room was a silent haven in a very noisy city. We had a Junior suite, the room was on 2 levels so anyone with a problem with stairs be warned. The toilet is on the ground floor bedroom up steep stairs. Breakfasts were fantastic and all staff very courtious

We stayed five nights at this hotel. The location, breakfast, and bar were great. The only negative was the bed. The mattress was so hard that we did not sleep well the entire time we were there. We would recommend this hotel to friends, but suggest they ask if the mattresses were upgraded.

I am writing this having literally returned home from staying at this wonderful hotel.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary during our stay, and at the time of booking, via a website agent, I asked if there was anything that could be done to make our anniversary a little extra special would be much appreciated.

We were delighted to find we were given one of the new Appartment Suite's with a compimentary bottle of sparkling wine.

All of the staff, without exception, are really geared to making your stay as friendly and as comfortable as possible.

As for the hotel, it is spotlessly kept and very well placed for all the major sightseeing attractions.

To all the staff at Hotel Degli Orafi - thanks for making our stay extra memorable!

Location: smack next to Uffizi. Rooms were very clean and modern. Public spaces are plentiful and well done. Breakfast room is spectacular, with murals on the ceiling. Breakfast is very good, with all the usual plus eggs and meats. Wifi available for payment. The bar has a view of the Duomo. An incredible bargain in the shoulder season at 125 euro. I would have paid double that and not blinked.

We LOVED the Degli Orafi hotel. My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in June and were so glad we selected it. We found the entire staff to be very friendly and helpful, unlike some reviews I've read. We opted for a river front room. It was lovely (although honestly, we never sat and looked out from the room). It was a nice size, clean and well kept. Our room was not ready when we arrived, but they graciously took our luggage and showed us upstairs to the rest rooms where we could clean up a bit. The location is great. It was never loud. We loved the gorgeous breakfast room, although we did have to wait for a table one morning. There is also a charming rooftop bar. I used to stay at the Lungarno, which I really love, but just can't justify the cost these days. This was a perfect alternative and we will stay there again.

This place was fantastic...the food was great, the breakfast room itself was great, the staff was incredible, the location along the river was absolutely perfect, it was centrally located, the room was spacious and wonderful ... even free water from the personal bar which was a nice touch.

The bar/restaurant on the 5th floor with the incredible patio view was amazing. The bartender/cook whipped up some incredible bruschetta! Of all places to get a wonderful little late night meal!!!

Absolutely 5-stars for everything. One of my favroite hotels of any place I have ever stayed, honestly.

Fantastic location, right next to Uffizi museum (literally) and right on the river. Was within one block of the famous bridge with all the shops on it (Ponto vecchio).
Room was spacious with fantastic, marbled bathroom.
Front desk staff all very helpful and friendly.
The included breakfast was amazing - huge selection of foods.
Amenities - there is a great bar and small restaurant on the top level of the hotel (with fantastic views) as well as a business center with internet access (have to pay for access however).

Overall, no negative issues at all. Really enjoyed this hotel!
