Just spent 10 days at the wonderful Hotel Degli Orafi. One word sums it up...amazing! Room spacious and truly "with a view" and perfectly appointed with king size bed, marble washroom facilities and heated towel racks. The Orafi rooftop bar and dining area offers an unparalleled view of Firenze...the Arno, Ponte Vecchioto and Vasari Corridor to one side and the omnipresent Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio to the other. The quaint lift is a marvel to behold and the entire site is just perfectly laid out with sitting areas on every floor and a spectacular breakfast dining area (breakfasts included) where attentive staff cater to your every early morning whim.
There cannot be a better location from which to base your visit to see this incredible city...thank you to all the great folks at the Orafi...we will be back (according to Il Porcellino)!
