Great Location

This was a very nice hotel. It is on the rivers edge and a very friendly hotel. It has a beautiful top floor dining area and bar/lounge. Breakfast was incredible. The hotel room is a bit small but we didn't spend much time in our room so it was fine. Bathroom was a good size except for the shower, a bit small but not unbearable. My husband and I loved that it was centrally located but not in the center of town so it was quiet at night and easy to get to and from during the day while we walked the city of Florence. I would stay here again.

Great Location

The stay here was probably the best one in my entire trip. The hotel staff was very helpful, answering any questions we had. The location was very good too, by the River Arno and almost in the center of town. The hotel also had a room to use the internet, and great breakfast in the morning. I would highly recommend it.

A newly renovated place to stay in an old city

Hotel Degli Orafi was fabulous!!!! The rooms are so new and the bathroom was so clean. I stayed in a double, a single, and even rented out one of there luxury apartments...which were amazing and affordable. They provided a fuzzy bathrobe with slippers and there were flatscreen tvs in the room. I would definelty recommend to stay in any of the rooms at this hotel but it's worth to stay in one their luxury apartments! The staff was awesome and speak English, too. They called a cab for me which arrived in less than five minutes when I needed to go to the airport or train station. The terrace has a beautiful setting...I don't think you could get an affordable hotel with a terrace like Hotel Degli Orafi in Florence. You could relax, have a drink, and enjoy the view. You couldn't ask for a better location to Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Signoria. I am defintely going stay here on my next visit.

It's one block away from the street that connects Ponte Vecchio and the Duomo...the popular road to stroll down.

Luxury style hotel at reasonable price

Rooms were very nice, hotel service was friendly and accomodating, and breakfast (included) was excellent. Great location near the Ufizi and other Florence must see's. All members of our party were pleasantly surprised by the hotel.

Excellent hotel

The Hotel Degli Orafi was a wonderful air-conditioned oasis, especially given the 100+ temp outside. Excellent location on the Arno and close to the Ponte Vecchio, next door to the Uffizi and the other famous sites. Excellent buffet breakfast. Knowledgeable and pleasant staff, all with good English skills. We would stay there again.
