If you don't mind staying in a Medici-era mansion that has been converted into a fine hotel, with expansive views of Florence, that is close to everything, including restaurants, shopping, The Ponte Vecchio, and the Duomo, stay here. The friendly and professional staff, comfortable beds and immaculate rooms make this hotel a must when I return to Florence. I traveled... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights during our Honeymoon. It was one of our favorite hotels during our stay. We could not have asked for a better location! Located right near the Ponte Vecchio, we were in walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The front desk was more than helpful in answering all the questions... More

My husband and I received this stay as a gift for our wedding. It was one of the best hotels we stayed at in Italy. We loved watching the sunset on top of the hotel tower. There was so much history in this particular building, and they have kept the Medici era mansion feel to this hotel. We loved it!... More

We loved this hotel! Cocktail hour on the rooftop was the best part in my opinion. Free Breakfast was great, lots of choices of food! My only complaint was that it was supposed to go until 10:30 and both mornings they closed it down by 9:45 (hey, we were on vacation!) The hotel is in the perfect area. Super safe... More

This hotel in right in the thick of Florence. Only minutes from anywhere that is anything you want to see. Some of the rooms are a little cramped...but they are clean and cared for very well. The best thing thought is the tower. A must see and do is the old tower attached to the hotel. Go up and enjoy... More

We spent two nights at the Torre Guelfa Hotel last week. It is a charming hotel! I feel the two best features are the location (close to everything and still within walking distance of the train station) and the view from the tower. My husband and I had a glass of wine each evening on the roof prior to going... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of our honeymoon. The hotel itself is great and really pretty. We loved the rooftop bar with views to die for. The location is right in the heart of all the action, very close to everything, but on a quiet little side street. Our room was fine but nothing special. We had a... More

Located on a quiet street in the heart of old Florence in an old castle. If you can climb stairs and appreciate a fantastic view this is the place to stay. Rooms are funky, service is great! Highly recommend. The roof was the highlight of our trip!

Beautiful rooms, great service, excellent location! The manager went out of his way to make a dinner reservation for us at an excellent trattoria. We had 2 rooms for our family and both were very pretty. The tower is amazing!

The Hotel Torre Guelfa in Florence is very close to the Ponte Vecchio and a short walk to Academia, Uffizi, Duomo, etc. The hotel is charming, the staff helpful and friendly. The back street is a bit noisy in the morning, but may only affect certain rooms. Breakfast was very nice. The rooftop patio/bar for guests is perfection - service... More
