This historical gem is absolutely charming and just around the corner of Ponte Vecchio. Very friendly and helpful staff. Building has 3 floors with rooms (most no view, either to a wall or open space of next building). From 3rd floor, you can take a narrow wooden spiral staircase up to the highest charming little roof terrace of the old... More

Everything was perfect; centrally located, attentive staff and amazing room with terrace. But the thing that left me and my boyfriend speechless was the view from the rooftop. I can definitely say that is THE BEST VIEW IN FLORENCE. I highly recommend this Hotel.

Torre Guelfa Hotel is located within walking distance of everything you will want to experience in Florence, but is also on a fairly quiet street that is a welcome respite from the crowds nearby. The building itself is beautiful and is drowning in history. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The breakfast was outstanding, as was the dining room.... More

We picked the hotel for its location and the opportunity to have a room with a private terrace. The hotel is pretty close to many of the main attractions, but is tucked down a small street so its surprisingly quiet. We booked the room with a private terrace. The views aren't so great as the terrace is only just above... More

The Torre Guelfa Hotel went far beyond my expectations. It was centrally located to many sites of interest, shopping & restaurants. The hotel staff was very kind & helpful with directions & advice. The rooms were very clean & nostalgic. We can't wait to go back!

We had a wonderful stay in the quadruple room. Not much of a view, but large accommodations and huge bathroom. The staff here is super nice, especially the concierges and the 'bar tender' up on the terrace. The tower and location of this hotel are second to none. It was absolutely beautiful to sit on the top terrace at sunset-... More

We stayed at the Torre Guelfa for 3 nights, in room 315 (with private terrace). The hotel is in a perfect location for exploring Florence, only a 5 min walk to the Ponte Vecchio.

I absolutely loved the staff here - especially Sara at he front desk. She was very friendly and always read to help with reservations, maps, directions, etc. The triple room itself was fairly plain but roomy enough for the 3 of us to do just fine for the very small amount of time we were in the room. The shower... More

Very centrally-located, this was ideal for our short visit - only a minute or two's walk from the Arno, Palazzo Vecchio/Uffizi, Duomo, etc. Very comfortable, quirky, historic hotel with helpful staff, fascinating history, plus a unique rooftop bar and terrace with most impressive views over the surrounding city. Plenty of great restaurants in the immediate vicinity, too - we were... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
