“Ideal location”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The Relais Uffizi is close to everything we wanted to see in Florence. Literally next door to the Uffizi Museum it overlooks the Piazza Della Signoria and the Palazzo Vecchio. Service is friendly and attentive. Breakfast is typical continental - nothing special. Price is amazing considering the location. We'll be back.

The Relais Uffizi is a great little hotel just off of the Piazza Della Signorina in the heart of Florence. The piazza is overlooked by the Palazzo Vecchio and is home to the replica of David and the Fountain of Neptune, among other famous sculptures and monuments. The hotel is located within the pedestrian zones which is a playground of cafes, shopping, and of course history. Being that the hotel was pet friendly, we were able to bring our dogs with us and take some great early morning walks along the River Arno and on the Ponte Vecchio when we seemed to have the entire town to ourselves.
The interior of the hotel is clean but aged, which to me added to the atmosphere of the place. Our room was close to the elevator on the second floor. We opted for the double superior, which was very roomy and was fairly modern and quite clean. The shower was actually decent sized and had consistently hot water (which can be rare in three star Italian hotels). The bed was typical for Europe, but was comfortable enough and clean.
The hotel reception was also on the second floor, up a few steps and through the network of crooked and obviously very old hallways. In the dining room near the reception desk they served a modest breakfast that could be enjoyed while overlooking the piazza.
The staff at the hotel were very helpful and easy to deal with.
If you are staying in Florence and are looking for a very reasonably priced hotel that will really add to your ability to absorb the atmosphere of Florence then I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was in a great location. Just a few steps out the door to the main hotspots in Florence. As it was in such a great location, it was noisy though. At night time we could hear the restaurants downstairs cleaning up (lots of pots and pans clanging).

The room was... well quirky. The decor was definitely not to my taste. It was a decent size and clean though.

The complimentary breakfast was ok. There wasn't a whole lot of choice. The breakfast room was very small and so quiet. A bit of music would go a long way. All we could hear were other people eating.

The front desk staff were very friendly.

Great location near the Uffizi Gallery and shops and restaurants. Staff were so lovely and a great breakfast.

We walked from the train station with our baggage. Do not bother hiring a car to get around Florence itself as you can walk everywhere.

The location & the reviews suggested this was a good spot & we were quite delighted to find the stay was everything we'd hoped for. Staff was very helpful & most pleasant to us & to our fellow guests. Location is quite ideal (though you don't want to try to drive to the hotel; can't be done). Room was quite charming, well appointed and housekeeping was very thorough. We'd definately stay here again if we get back to Frienze.

We only stayed at Relais Uffizi for one night, prior to an early morning flight out of Florence. We absolutely loved the location...near all the historic locations so we were able to walk to all the major attractions in Florence in the short period of time we were there. The hotel was cozy, homey, and we only had one complaint, which may or may not have been particular to the room we were assigned. Our bed was sooo hard that my husband and I both had a poor night's sleep. This hotel has so many positive things going for it that I would not rule it out, but I would have to say that before staying there again I would check out room and the comfort of the bed!!
