I am a 62 year old disabled man who uses a mobility scooter to get around. My wife and I have recently spent 3 weeks driving from the UK to Italy visiting Piacenza, Spoleto, Assisi, Rome and Florence. I needed to find a hotel in Florence that was very central to all the attraction and could accommodate a disabled person... More

Amazing location, right by the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. The hotel is in an ancient house with many rooms and a high tower with exceptional views. It's not a 5-star hotel but it's comfortable and calm and great value for the price. The real draw for me was the guys on reception though. Always ready to help out with... More

As we left the Torre Guefla, my college aged son mentioned that in all of our extensive travels, we had never utilized a front desk staff more than here. .. and he was right. They were all amazingly helpful and friendly. No request was too big or too small. Room was lovely with great air con and a comfortable bed.... More

This hotel was wonderful! The room was large and well-decorated (four poster beds, nice furniture), if just a little bit dark from the one small window. The staff were incredibly friendly. The hotel has a nice breakfast room space, a large "living room" with fancy couches on the 3rd floor, and of course the famous tower with the great Florence... More

Great location. Staff helpful finding dinner spots. Awesome view (one of best in Florence) from terrace at top of tower. "Deluxe double" room disappointing. Poor bed quality. Not enough furniture to put things on. Had to duck to keep from hitting my head when entering bathroom. The bar, which is just a guy serving drinks, is open only from 4-8.... More

If Venice is a grand dame, then this is a grand maestro....it is historic and magnificent. The views from the tower were incomparable and grand. The staff was professional and responsive. The European-style breakfast was good. We loved being one street over from the Arno River and so close to the Uffizi and all that Florence has to offer. We... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights at this hotel a week ago. We got up early on the last day to enjoy the fabulous view from the hotel's rooftop perch. It was incomparable! Then, we ate the generous breakfast buffet presided over by Emran who treated us like he was our personal butler. He and the front desk... More

We spent 3 nights in Florence and loved the Torre Guelfa. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was quite satisfying. The true gem of the hotel though is the rooftop terrace overlooking the city. Open 24 hours a day, one can watch the sun rise, enjoy wine and a light snack in... More

We have stayed here five times previously - and they not only remember us, but take VERY good care of us! For the first half of this latest trip, we stayed in the tower terrace room - its a crazy climb to get there, but the terrace was worth it!! Second half when we returned a week later in the... More
