This hotel was a little challenging to find even after entering the beautiful front door but once found proved to be a gem in the middle of Florence. It is on the 4th floor and you need to use the small lift at the end of the corridor. The position is amazing right in the middle of Florence less than...

We had a hard time finding the hotel as we were expecting to see a big sign on the street with a hotel building. The location is excellent, in the middle of all the action in Florence, close to all the attractions and museums, and a walking distance from the bridge and the nice restaurants, cafes and gelaterias. Only the...

You cannot be more in a heart of Florence than this. Price is excellent, our room and bathroom were spotless. We don't own TV, so we didn't miss it ;) You have all the landmarks on your doorstep, and as Florence is amazing, you will always be out and about. There is a great gellato place just behind the corner,...

Room was only €40 so you cannot expect much. The location is perfect; right in the heart of Florence. The rooms are clean and the staff is incredibly helpful. The building is a bit strange as it is on the 4th floor of a residential building but for one night this is a great hotel.

There is a very common theme for reviews of this hotel. It really is all about the location. We could lean out of our window 4 floors up and see Ponte Vecchio. Turn right out of the front door and in 20 steps you're looking at Palazzio Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery. For that, the price is incredible. I think some...

The location here is amazing. You are in the heart of Florence. One minutes walk to the Duomo and Giotto's tower. One minute walk to the bridge with the houses on it, one minute walk to the markets and many gelaterias! The rooms are good. No tv, but it's not needed as your always out and about! They are clean...

You can walk everywhere in central Florence, from the train station SMN to the hotel is about <15min. Right outside the hotel, there is a 'tourist market' selling leather jackets/bags & other...

Great location and I absolutely love the fact that I could just walk to Piazza della Signoria in less than a minute. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. Other tourist attractions are all within walking distance to the hotel. Our room was small but clean and the bathroom is a good size though shower area is tiny. Excellent wifi and...

You could not find a better location in Florence. A short walk everywhere and only about a 15 minute walk to the train station. Restaurants everywhere just out the door. Ponte Vecchio bridge just a few minutes. Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi museum just a couple minutes walk. Our room was a bit small, but it was very clean...

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.
