My sister and I stayed here and what stands out the most is the rooftop terrace. We sipped vino and looked out onto the duomo and enjoyed the city lights view of beautiful florence. 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

Overall I was happy with my stay at the Torre Guelfa. The view from the rooftop deck was amazing and the location was perfect. The staff were very professional, but too formal for me, I prefer a bit more of a "homey" feel and more personality. The room was small and dark with a small zig-zag shaped bathroom, and the... More

Stayed here for a quick 2 night stopover from Venice To Rome and had the room with the absolutely fantastic terrace. After a day of touring and tasting 3 wonderful Brunello wineries (with Silvio), this is the perfect place to relax afterwards. Excellent location to numerous low and high end restaurants as well. The breakfast is also top notch.

Stayed here for 3 nights recently - very helpful staff at arrival letting us check in early. Had a lovely clean room, loads of space and great air con. Breakfast wasn't amazing but it was fine - enough to get you fuelled up in the morning to go out and enjoy the wonderful food florence has to offer. In fact... More
