spent 2 nites at the hotel last week. the room was small although it did have high ceilings which gave the feeling that it was larger. the staff were pleasant and professional. the breakfast was excellent- great choices and very tasty.

we loved the rooftop bar/restaurant with views of the arno and the ponte vecchio from one sie and the uffizi and duomo from the other. maria our server was so sweet and accomodating.

I loved this place, I actually stayed here with family when they were visiting, while I was studying in Florence. The location was great, and the hotel was beautiful. The breakfast in the mornings was also great every day.

I did have one problem though, our room had about two steps down into the room from the hallway, and I just so happened to walk in without remembering the steps were there, fell and broke my ankle. However, the hotel was so wonderful when they found out. They offered to call a cab for us, which I declined at the time because I wasn't sure the extent of the injury, and it was the first night of my family visiting, I didn't want to spend it in the hospital. They also sent up a wonderful bottle of champagne and an assortment of nuts! There weren't any signs prior to entering the room that there were steps down, and the lights only turn on with your key card put into a slot by the door, so the lights were off, but they made up for it, and eased a little bit of the pain with the bottle of champagne.

Unbeatable central location, gorgeous rooftop view and great room, but was it worth the condescending 'tude from the front desk crew? Not for us and our money. We thought they would be nicer judged from the attentive email communication, but were sorely disappointed when we got there. We will not be staying at Hotel Degli Orafi for our next trip to Florence, and doubt that Reception could care less. They didn't even ask how our stay was when we checked out. Wondering if this hotel is resting on their "Room With A View" laurels?

The hotel is located across Ponte Vecchio and only 2 minute walk from the Uffizi museum. Breakfast is the best amongst other hotels that I've stayed with in Italy. With a very artistic breakfast room and excellent staff, we really enjoyed our breakfast everyday. The room is spacious and clean. I would recommend to stay in a room with a view.

We recently stayed in a triple room at the Degli Orafi for three days with our college age daughter on break from her student abroad program. We picked it for the central location and the reviews on Trip Advisor. I thought that for the most part the hotel lived up to its good reviews. If you want to be in the action, this is the place to be. Since we only had three days, we wanted to see as much as possible, and we could walk out the door and be in the center of shopping, next door to the Uffizi, and down the street from great restaurants. The down side was the noise from our room which was on the first floor overlooking the river, with a nice view, but impossible to open the windows because the noise from the street was so deafening. We stayed over on a Saturday night and it was unbelievably noisy until about 5 am. Motorcycles, cars and trucks are literally zooming down the road day and night . The hotel offered us another room for Sunday night but it was only a double and could not accommodate our daughter. The other downside of the hotel was the hard beds, but I understand that this is usual for Italian hotels. The breakfast was superb with ample selection of foods, and the breakfast room was beautiful. There was a nice lounge on our floor, and my husband fell in love with the fifth floor lounge, restaurant and roof top bar where he spent time on his computer (no Wi-Fi yet but they said they are working on it) with his cocktail and appetizers every night and said the bartender was a terrific guy. We also had a delicious lunch there one day. I would definately recommend this hotel, and I would stay there again, but I would ask for a room away from the street . By the way, we had good service and the front desk personnel spoke English well .
