Oscar-winning setting in an ancient Florentine building
The elegant Degli Orafi Hotel Florence, the setting for "A Room with a View," is a renowned four-star property housed in an ancient (13th Century) Florentine building. A polished, professional staff assures everyone's stay is productive and first-rate. Guests are encouraged to savor a celebrated Chianti vintage and beautiful city views from the rooftop terrace. The hotel boasts a superb location in the city center along the river, just steps from Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery.

  • The setting for James Ivory's film "A Room with a View"
  • Situated in a 13th century building
  • Prime location steps from Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery
Rooms

Rooms at the Degli Orafi Hotel Florence are spacious and elegant and richly furnished with period pieces and modern conveniences. Bathrooms are richly adorned in marble, with many rooms offering two sinks. All rooms (classic, executive, and junior suites) include air conditioning, a direct dial phone, mini-bar, satellite TV, and a safe. For those willing to splurge, request the celebrated "Room with a View," the room where James Ivory shot memorable scenes from his 1985 Oscar-winning film, and which offers a coveted view over the Ponte Vecchio.

Features

Perhaps the only Florence hotel that served as the setting for a film that won an Oscar ("A Room with a View") for best set design, the Degli Orafi Hotel Florence is a four-star luxury property situated in a 13th century Florentine building.

Overlooking the River Arno and steps away from the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery, it is a privileged starting point for exploring all of Florence's treasures, yet a welcome retreat and local destination in its own right.

Rooms are spacious and elegant and furnished with the finest period pieces, yet teeming with the amenities of the modern day.

A sumptuous buffet breakfast is served in a grand ballroom that overlooks the Arno River, while a rooftop terrace bar is the ideal setting to savor a delicious Chianti wine.

A richly appointed library is the perfect place to relax with a good book or perhaps catch up on correspondence at a computer workstation.
