positive location and positive quality/price balanced value. of course it's difficult to arrive and to park, so older people are not advantaged. but it's fantastic to stay ih the heart of the city. the view from the (small) terracce is fantastic even if only after so many steps...

If you are the person who favors an impersonal hotel that comes with a king-sized bed, a giant bathroom and looks the same in Florence, Italy as Florence, Alabama, don't stay at Hotel Torre Guelfa. However, if you like the idea of staying in a 13th century tower, with a clean room, a comfortable bed, hospitable staff and being within... More

We booked the room with the terrace and were very happy. We had a glass of wine on the terrace every afternoon, and enjoyed the tower views where we enjoyed the sunsets. The location was fantastic, and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. We had a little trouble driving to the hotel - we followed the directions posted on... More

This outstanding hotel is in a wonderful location around the corner from the Ponte Vecchio and within walking distance of everything in Florence. We drank wine on the roof top overlooking the Arno and watched the glorious sunsets !

We really loved this hotel. Although it was cold outside the hotel was warm and staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely and the common parts splendid. The tower itself has fantastic views across the city. Great breakfasts in a lovely loggia area on the third floor. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I have traveled to Florence several times, and I think the location of this hotel is just about perfect. Florence is so charming and so walkable and so full of wonderful sights and adventures, it's easy to get overwhelmed with options. Torre Guelfa is perfectly situated to explore Oltrarno, the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi, Palazzo Strozzi and so much more.... More

We absolutely loved this little boutique hotel in the centre of Florence. The building is an old family palace that has been converted to a hotel. Consequently it has an abundance of character and lovely original features including a tower with views of the entire city. Our room was large and comfortable with a "princess" bed while the bathroom was... More

Wow, what a great place.

I've been to Florence several times. If you stay in the centre it's going to be a touch noisy but we heard little road noise and although we did not have a room with a view it was lovely.as was the breakfast and the friendly staff

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
