This was the worst hotel I stayed in during 3 weeks in Italy. After reading the reviews I thought is sounded perfect - I was wrong! Do not stay in the standard double rooms. Our first room was tiny and right next to the kitchen and breakfast room. I usually love traditional but this was very tired decor and looked... More

I was halfway through my euro trip when I stayed at Torre Guelfa it was an oasis. Not too far from local attractions and train station. Tranquility in the middle of the city. The staff were very friendly offering local suggestions. The breakfast was a good selection. The rooms were clean and spacious, loved the antique look. The roof terrace... More

Stayed at Torre Guelfa for two nights. Central, nice service, and the roof top had a wonderful view of the city. The room was as expected with regards to the price and stars of the hotel. Above average. Would recommend to anyone staying in Florence for a couple of days.

This hotel cannot be more central, which is just what you need. In itself it is quite basic, but the bed was extremely comfortable, it has air con, mini bar, safe, TV (which we didn't watch). Nothing more needed on a very short break. Breakfast was good. The bar up the tower is exceptional, and really must be visited, with... More

We stayed in a Junior suite and it was a lovely big room with AC. This hotel is very elegant and full of character, not the usual faceless corporate hotel chain. It was a great location in the heart if the city and I would love to come again. Roof top bar is a treat but limited space. Breakfast was... More

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
