Having taken first flight on a Saturday, I arrived in Florence in pouring rain. But as soon as I entered the glass doors from hotel Spadai - which I easily found in a side street near the Duomo - my weekend trip took a turn for the better. Upon checking in, the wonderful woman at the desk told me I was upgraded to a deluxe room. What a great way to start my birthday weekend! The room lived up to its name. Tastefully decorated. Very clean, well isolated from outside noise, firm matrass, exceptional linen, huge bathroom, wonderful bath towels, Jacuzzi bath and separate rain shower. I swear I washed four times that night just to try everything out. Mini bar contents are free. The staff were warm, welcoming, professional and attentive. I warmly recommend this hotel to everyone. I will be returning here often!
The Borghese Palace Art Hotel is incredible. The location is perfect, just a short walk to the Duomo, central market, and many other attraction. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Florence looking for a great location, comfortable stay, and pleasant, helpful staff!
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
The hotel is a former palace which has recently been beautifully renovated. It is in the perfect location for exploring Florence, close to the river and everything within easy walking distance.The room was huge and comfortable, the bathroom large and modern. Breakfast was excellent.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and mostly spoke very good English.
The shower was a bit of a trickle, and there was quite a lot of noise from the street (on a weekend in November), also the room was not cleaned until late afternoon. Apart from that it was great, and I would absolutely recommend it .Just bring ear plugs!
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.
