Do not stay in this hotel. It was absolutely disgusting. Blood on a pillow, sewage smell in the bath room, noisy and cramped. We couldn't get out of this hotel fast enough. We had to stay one night because we checked in very late. We didn't sleep all night because we felt the room was so gross. Our room faced... More

We found this hotel through Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The location is perfect to walk to all Florence sights. We travelled as a couple with our friend and brother-in-law. Our room was (301) and had a canopied bed and large sitting area. The only complaint I have is the bathroom. It was quite large with 2 sinks... More

A step in Florence and your heart understands that life is a gift. There is nothing as being in Florence and if you stay in a place that goes in the same flow, as the city does, it is a treat. This hotel is a jewel and has all the potential to be the best of all. Nevertheless, they just... More

The location of Hotel Torre Guelfa is perfect. All historical places are walking distance and the view from the tower is amazing. The building is fascinating, the staff friendly and helpful. We arrived by car and had some problems to find the place. The GPS insisted saying that we had reached our destination but no trace of the hotel. We... More

The best thing about this property is the tower bar. Service there was friendly and appropriate. Good meeting place for guests of the hotel. Rooms were nicely furnished, comfortable and the location was terrific. Walked everywhere! Saw some more attractive hotels but not one with such a great view as the tower provided.

Great charm in rooms. Good shower. Excellent view from tower. Great location. Standard but plentiful Italian breakfast. (3 hr window 0730-1040) But found bed to be very hard (even compared to typical Italian hotels) Room temperature varied greatly - would become uncomfortably warm then heat would shut off to cool down. We opened the window to get fresh air from... More

Dear Samastarr1, Thank you for submitting your review about your stay. We appreciate you enjoyed the charm of the building and the view from the tower. We regret you did not sleep as comfortably as you expected, maybe because Italian mattresses are usually a little bit harder(?!) . The heating is centralized and we did not have any complaint about... More

We didn't stay in this hotel (although it looks lovely), but have to say the tower bar blew our minds! The drinks were very reasonably priced, and were served with a little snack by a very sweet staff member. What fantastic 360 degree views of beautiful Firenze! A must try if you are staying here!

We look forward for you to completing this experience staying here with us during your next trip to Florence! Kind regards Niccolò... More

This hotel is rite in the center of the city and only a block from the river and the Ponte Veccio. The staff here are friendly and helpful. The view from the tower is amazing. The breakfast was very good too. I would absolutely stay here again. This is a perfect place to stay if you plan on walking to... More

The hotel is steps from the center of Florence. The location alone makes it worthwhile since Florence is a city for walking. The medieval tower built by one of the most powerful families of Florence sets it apart. Seeing the city spread before you, with the Tuscan hills in the background, the Duomo glowing in the sunset or lit by... More

Dear Crestonepeak, Thank you for your great review. We really appreciate when our guests come back home and feel they had been staying in a unique medieval tower. The views from up there are really impressive, and the magic you described in your review is something that many photographers have witnessed with incredibly beautiful pictures.
