“Uncorked and Cultivated Italy Wine & Food Tours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is a wonderful Florentine hotel; where else can you dream at breakfast time whilst peering out at the River Arno, or look above at the magnificent frescoes and know that the surroundings suit this great space. Degli is very comfortable and well positioned geographically for exploring wonderful Florence on foot (Ponte Vecchio is just outside or the Duomo not too far away).

Room Tip: The old part of the hotel is at the front; close to the street; the rebuilt section (after the mafia...

The hotel is excellent. We had a room overlooking the Arno, with large windows. The room was quite comfortable and spacious. Lots of nice details and little treats...tee-shirts, slippers, notes. A great terrace/bar on the top floor as well, and also an impressive breakfast spread. Location is the best...you can walk to everything, and it is easy to get back to the hotel...just follow signs to the Uffiizi. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Do not go for the cheapest...go for a room overlooking the river

This hotel is wonderful. It was our first trip to Florence--three adults. We were given the room with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living area and a kitchenette. The view from the :upper bedroom" window above the bed was of the Duomo! The location was perfect. The staff were very helpful and personable. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the lobby. Great restaurant recommendations from the staff. We hope to get back to Florence, and if we do, we will definitely stay at Hotel Degli Orafi.

This hotel is a block away from the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio. Our room looked out on the Vesari Corridor and the Arno. The staff is professional, personable and efficient. The hotel is immaculate and well appointed. The rooms are newly renovated with comfortable beds and well planned lighting and electrical outlets. Beautiful marble bathrooms with luxury towels and bath products. The rooftop restaurant has a wonderful view and nice food, reasonably priced. It is a great spot to enjoy an aperitivo and free prosecco and birra at check in. The breakfast buffet is extensive (think caviar and smoked salmon) and the dining room has frescos all around, Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. It was wonderful! The staff was so accomodating and helpful! The room was absolutely gorgeous and the hotel was well located in the heart of Florence. We really enjoyed our breakfast as well as the wine bar on the roof with fantastic views. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a very romantic stay in Florence.

I chose this hotel as it was centrally located and with great access to the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio as well as just being round the corner from the Piazza Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio. This was a 60th birthday surprise for my partner and I asked the hotel if they could make her stay a memorable one. I paid a little extra for some wine and flowers to be in the room and the hotel made reservations for us at the Uffizi and Galleria del'Accademia. I also decided to go for an 'executive' room. On arrival the staff were absolutely delightful and very helpful and took us up to our room on the 4th floor. On seeing the flowers, the wine and then the stunning view of the Duomo, Giotto Belltower and Palazzo Vecchio my other half eyes filled with tears of joy as it was a really special view for her. Throughout the stay our experience with the hotel was always exceptional from the excellent breakfast buffet to the turn down service with the sweets and the weather forecast for the next day, even the service from the hotel rooftop bar with its stunning view was nothing less then excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, even printing out my boarding passes for my return home. The views from the roof garden and the quality of service means that if I ever return to Florence, I shall make the Hotel degli Orafi my preferred location for a stay and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to make a stay in Florence a special one
