A beautiful hotel in a great location is not always easy to find. We did it, with the Hotel Degli Orafi. Because I had told the hotel that we were celebrating 25 years of marriage on our trip, there was a lovely bottle of sparkling wine waiting for us when we arrived-- and it was very welcome after a long...

The hotel is conviently placed right next to the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi and all the other main sites are in easy walking distance- though take care crossing the street next to the Arno. We got a cab from Florence airport and were dropped off right outside - I would reccomend getting a cab if you arrive at the... More

This is a very nice, charming hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are cozy, well-kept and clean. Had a delicious 'melanzane alla parmigiana' at the hotel's restaurant and the Prosecco was so refreshing. Location is unbeatable - next to Ponte Vecchio. I do recommend this hotel.

Besides being a wonderful hotel, this one is about location, location. A stone's throw (literally out the front door and to the left is the back of the Uffizzi Gallery, and out the front to the right it's a half block walk to thePonte Vecchio. Our room was a suite actually and while the view was of a walled opening... More

This hotel was the best one that we stayed at out of our 5 week trip. Idealy situated beside the Uffizi Gallery the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio and about 12 minutes walk to the train station unless you get lost. We were warmly welcomed given a map of the city and some of the sights were pointed out... More

The Hotel degli Orafi enjoys a perfect location smack-dab between the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio. Fine linens on the beds, acres of marble in the bathrooms and plush courtesy sets all contribute to the feeling of luxury and the sense of occasion. The vast hot and cold breakfast buffet is a welcome change from the usual Italian formula of... More

The staff was warm and inviting and gave us excellent dining reccommendations each night of our stay. The location was fantastic, we walked everywhere and rarely needed a taxi for our outings. We would definitely come back!
