The staff at this hotel were excellent especially Theresa. The hotel is great for visiting the old historic center and is walking distance to everything. Breakfast is delicious and the room was large and comfortable. Staff was outstanding and took care of every request. Great selection of TV to keep in touch with USA going ons. Free access to spa was good however not impressed with Anna the masseuse. Will definitely return here on future visits.
"Historic vibe w/ modern comfort- unbeatable combo!"
Our room was tucked away in a quiet corner, found after winding through left and right turns, art and statuary, antiques and sitting rooms, secret cubbyholes, and only a few turns away from the bar and roof terrace. One really had the feel of how this structure might have been arranged, and functioned, in its historic "day." Service from staff was always outstanding, friendly, kind -- and in a couple of cases with unusual requests -- proactively effective. Atmosphere friendly, relaxed, and yet steeped in old world subtle formality if that's what one might wish -- which we didn't of course. We loved connecting with the staff and appreciating how well they took care of us, and telling them so! And loved the preservation of the history through decor. We can stay in smart, "modern" slick hotels anytime, this one had all the comforts, minus the slick.
Great hotel in a perfect location. We had a deluxe room which was a good size and a huge bathroom including full bath.
Very easy to get the sites - everything is in walking distance.
Plenty of decent restaurants at good prices.
We will be going back!
Had a great stay here. The staff were very friendly, the breakfast is decent and the rooms are so cute! The stairs are a great way to work off the delicious Italian food and the staff helps with luggage.
Stayed in this wonderful hotel for my 60th birthday. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. A complementary drink was included on arrival together with a bottle of champagne on my birthday. This delightful hotel is within walking distance of all attractions and on the bank of the Arno river. Could not fault anything and will definitely return. We have fallen in love with this hotel and Florence.

The 4 star Hotel Degli Orafi dates back to the 13th century. It was built as an Augustinian convent and the interior still …More
It is in the middle of Florence and within a few minutes of the major sites. The staff is extremely helpful. The room was up to date and clean. Breakfast was fine if you are a meat eater, but I am vegan so the choices were more limited. Almond or soy milk would be a simple improvement.
The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, or Duomo for short, is one of Italy’s largest churches, and tops the list of places to visit in Florence. The impressive Gothic architecture features an ornate exterior, stained glass windows, and a cavernous interior. Two popes are buried here, and three of the buildings are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
