Room was spacious and we were welcomed with a decorated bed and rose petals as were on honeymoon. Staff was helpful. We were 5mins from the city centre but not too noisy. Room faced the street. Air Con worked perfectly. Would recommend.

La Residenza dell’Orafo is in a perfect location to get from the train station, to the leather market and to the center of town. We were first greeted by a very friendly and charming Rafaella who happily stored our luggage until our room was ready. We had the SKY room which was spacious, clean and perfect for 3 women. The...

La Residenza dell’Orafo is in a perfect location very near the station and close to the Duomo (and all the central sightseeing areas) The B&B is like a small quirky boutique hotel, having just five rooms. We had a lovely warm welcome from Rafaella, who explained all the major sights and made useful recommendations, carefully marked on a map for... More

Very clean hotel located near the hustle bustle of Florence. This hotel is actually a building that hosts several hotels, a different one on each floor. There is a lift (elevator) that will fit your luggage only but that's a big deal. The hotel was not located on street level which has its pluses (you can leave the windows open)... More

We were only staying one night in Florence due to the ridiculous prices compared to other regions of Tuscany we could stay. So we found what was one of the cheapest options, and were surprised to find such outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor. We booked the dell'Orafo happily!

We had a lovely experience staying here, the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is in walking distance to the station and all the major sights. The restaurants suggested were excellent as is the WiFi. The fruit bowls each day were a welcome treat as were our Easter Gifts. We would recommend this boutique hotel.
