For my 50th birthday my husband treated me to a trip to Florence and we stayed in the Hotel Degli Orafi for four nights. Our first impression was positive and we were welcomed by a very friendly and courteous gentleman on the reception who gave us all the information we needed about the hotel’s amenities. Our room on the second floor was spacious, clean and well equipped; although for us Brits who are used to the cold, slightly on the warm side. The large double bed had crisp cotton sheets with extra pillows if needed. The beds are firm, as other reviewers have noted, but to be honest they are perfectly adequate for the few nights we stayed there. The roof top bar is a great place to unwind after a hard days walking and eating, with lovely and helpful staff too. One of the highlights of our trip was that although we did not mention it was my ‘significant birthday’ they must have noticed the card my husband gave me in the morning and to our delight we found a bottle of chilled wine and nibbles when returning to our room in the afternoon. This was a lovely gesture and added to the wonderful day I had celebrating my birthday. Breakfast is a real treat, sitting in the ornately decorated breakfast room overlooking the river Arno is perfect; the buffet has lots of choice which was always fresh and very tempting. The location is perfect with the Galleria Uffizzi and the Ponte Vecchio only steps away from the hotel entrance and within easy walking distance of all of the many other sights that Florence has to offer. Would I stay there again – without hesitation, the Degli Orafi is everything you could want from a hotel in Florence.
