The hotel certainly sits in an enviable position. It's next door to the Uffizi gallery, and less than 100m to the Ponte Vecchio. The hotel itself is a mixed bag. It seems to be two hotels in one. The Orafi and the Tower. The Orafi is the hotel while the Tower is a collection of 'apartments' that have small kitchens,...

The oscar-winning film "a room with a view" was filmed here. I haven't seen it, but the title is more than fitting for this boutique hotel just steps from Ponte Vecchio. The rooms are large and luxurious, marble bathrooms twice the size of a typical room in italy. I recommend paying extra to get a room with a balcony, so...

My husband and I toured Italy in October and stayed here for three nights during our visit to Florence. This hotel was great, as it is right on the river and we were able to walk to all sightseeing opportunities. This hotel is a former convent and has beautiful beamed ceilings and offers a wonderful breakfast each morning. We will...

We stayed for a week at this hotel and I highly recommend it. Our room didn't have the best view, but it had a very nice outside porch that was nice to go out and get some fresh air and enjoy the wonderful weather. I don't know if the other rooms had this, but it was a definite perk. The...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for our first visit to Florence. Obviously we needed a hotel with good access to different parts of the city, and this one was just it.

This must be the best hotel in Florence. Our room directly overlooked the river, and from the hotel's bar area, you could see the Duomo as well as the river in the opposite direction.

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.
