Reviewed November 9, 2013

We only spent 2 nights at this wonderful hotel and everything was great! The location is perfect for exploring the tourist sites and finding restaurants. The breakfast room was as beautiful as described by previous reviewers and the food was of excellent quality. Our room was a little small, but beautiful,and the view couldn't be beat. The little sitting areas in the hotel were enjoyable places to relax.We really felt like we were immersed in Florence. I did not want to leave this hotel!

Room Tip: The room with the balcony was fabulous!

Impressive breakfast, wonderful location. We enjoyed the rooftop bar/ terrace at sunset. The lit Duomo on one side and the Arno on the other wow. Friendly bartenders. Lots of special niceties...tshirts on our bed at night, notes, wine for our anniversary. Front desk was helpful.

Our room was small. The only bad comment is the bed was way too firm. We were terribly uncomfortable. It was like sleeping on plywood. We stayed 4 nights and were ready to get to another bed!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Arno.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent stay with us and for your valuable feedback. Your kind comments regarding the hotel’s location and service is highly appreciated .
We are sorry to hear you found your room too small, the size for a Standard room is a average of 18-20 MQ + bathroom. This information is shared on our website in order to help our guests to choose ther right room for their short or long stay. The bedding is very individual but we would have been glad to soften it for your. So please come back and stay with us again, we will do our best to give you a comfortable stay in Florence!

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.
