Great hotel to stay in. Location was perfect for the major sights. The staff was fantastic, they were very helpful in accommodating us. Great recommendations for restaurants and wine bars. The view from the terrace on the top of the tower was amazing. The only negative comment that we have was the breakfast was less than what we normally received...

My husband and I traveled to Florence with Rick Steves, Torre Guelfa was the selected hotel during our stay and we were delighted with the choice. Its location is perfect! The hotel has been restored and provides the charm of traditional, elegant Italy and comfortable beds, impeccable bathrooms, availability of WiFi and -- for news junkies, cable TV. Across the...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Room was nice, large, comfortable. Shower leaked, but there was also a tub which met our needs. Staff was helpful. Location very convenient. Breakfast was adequate for our needs.

We loved everything about our stay at Torre Guelfa Hotel. The room was beautiful, spacious, clean and comfortable. The glassed in breakfast room was lovely and the buffet delicious. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. A walk up the tower provides a breathtaking view of Florence. This was one of our favorite hotels during our trip to Italy!

We spent only 2 nights in the Hotel Torre Guelfa in Florence; I wish it were more. It was wonderful. The staff couldnt have been more accommodating and friendly and the location was perfect - minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi, yet down the street from noisy crowds. In addition to reserving museum tickets for us and making...

This is a hotel that I would recommend to anyone visiting Florence. It is an old castle, and we enjoyed Chianti and cheese plate on the roof top. I loved the rooms and loved my stay. Highly recommend!

This hotel used to be a merchant's palace with a tower. Today, guests climb the stairs to the tower, enjoy drinks in the evening and a stunning view of the city and Brunelleschi's dome. The location is central and you can walk to everything. It's just a couple of blocks from the Ponte Vecchio. The room was clean and comfortable....

Dear pburkefox Grazie! Indeed, our rooms are all different to each other, which makes our Hotel a different place to stay. Someone of the former reviewers called it a "not a cookie cutter Hotel" an expression I like because it fits.

I've been to Florence many times and I've never stayed in a more perfect location. This hotel is quiet but right near the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. The room was not memorable but was clean and quiet with much needed AC. The staff was excellent, offering all sorts of helpful suggestions. The tower is truly a lovely bonus--and a nice...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood 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.
