I stayed in the Torre Guelfa Hotel for two days last week and just loved it! My room was huge for one person with a comfortable bed and pleasant view of a nearby rooftop garden. Breakfast every morning was huge, with tons of options on the buffet. I was really impressed with the beauty of this hotel, particularly the lovely... More

We stayed at this hotel July 2014. The rooms were large and clean, well decorated AND the AC worked GREAT! We are a family of 4 and we shared 1 room. The Front desk staff were VERY helpful..They gave us directions to sites and even helped us resolve a situation with our tickets to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa!!... More

Great location in Florence for a hotel with a great history and a special old world charm. The rooms were very large and comfortable. The viewing and drinks from the tower of the hotel are breath taking. We found this hotel to be a great value.

I think I stayed up thee for hours just admiring the sights. As I recall. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was cosi cosi but... More

My husband and I stayed at Torre Guelfa Hotel for part of our honeymoon and I was very disappointed. Our room was diagonal from the cleaning closet so the hallway and our room smelled very strongly of chemical cleaners. We always heard banging from that closet but also were very close to the kitchen quarters and each morning woke up... More

The old part of Florence, Italy is a tourist’s delight for those into the art and architecture of the Renaissance. And in an unfamiliar foreign city I really appreciate a hotel site that is convenient to what I want to see and whose staff can help me with directions and suggestions for places to see and eat. And if the... More

The location for this hotel is perfect--right near the Ponte Vecchio and the Piazza della Signoria. The bar on the top of the tower is fabulous. Can't get a better view anywhere. The room was only so-so. Breakfast was included and pretty good.

We stayed one night at this hotel on our final day in Italy. Our room was an okay size but definitely dated and a bit dark and dingy. We enjoyed the rooftop in the late afternoon and the view of the city is incredible - just wish we had stayed for a cocktail but the World Cup Soccer with Italy... More

Best location, steps from Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizzi. Totally unique property with a spectacular tower and bar. The room was older and not fancy, and the bathroom was miniscule, but I didn't care. Only problem was the air conditioning. It was not hot when we were there, but the street nearby was so noisy that we would have liked... More

This is a wonderful old hotel very near the Ponte Vecchio. I had stayed here on a tour a couple of years ago and remembered it fondly...so when I decided to return to Florence, I decided to revisit this gem. I was not disappointed! The rooms are old and charming, but with modern comforts. We were on the 2nd floor... More
