Hotel degli Orafi - Near Everything

Five-Star Style for four-Star Rates

Hotel degli is beautiful, chic, and has excellent vibe. The hotel sits along the Fiume Arno in the historic city center. This is a small boutique hotel with 42 rooms and five floors. There is a bar, lounge, and small deli that serve guests on-site. The rooms are cozy, clean and offer splendid views of the river. Expect an attentive, multilingual, and knowledgeable staff. The concierge can help with ticket, valet parking, and other services. The city and river views from the rooftop terrace are amazing. 

Steps From Everything

This is the heart of Florence's historical and business district. The Palazzo Vecchio is a five-minute walk. The area offers historical sites, restaurants, cafés, shopping, and Gelato shops. There is no need to take a bus. Everything is nearby, and bicycle rentals within the area are perfect for venues that are further than a fifteen minute walk. This is an area that is suitable for families with children, couples, solo travelers, and business people. Walk around and just explore the area. Everything you want is right there. 

Food, Shopping, and History

A short ten-minute walk takes you to the Museo Galileo and the Piazza dei Giudici where you will find restaurants, shops, and beautiful architecture. The Palazzo Vecchio is a five to ten-minute walk from Hotel degli Orafi. Along the way, stop by the Piazzale degli Uffizi where you will find galleries and restaurants. A highlight for most guests is a trip to the Basilica of Santa Croce and the Chiesa e Museo di Orsanmichele. There are enough unique activities here for a customized stay. 

River Front Views

Some rooms at the Hotel degli Orafi have views of the river. The 42 rooms offer climate control and sound proof walls. For entertainment, the flat panel TV comes with premium channels or pay movies. The internet is free for both WiFi and hardwire connect access. In-room amenities include a minibar, phone, safe, and standards such as a hair dryer, iron, and ironing board. Hypoallergenic bedding is available upon request, as are cribs and roll away beds.

The Bottom Line

The Hotel Degli Orafi is a solid four-star hotel.  Many comparable hotels, such as the Hotel Berchielli have similar amenities, but few offer the stunning views of the Fiume Arno or have a rooftop terrace. The value here is not just price, but also service and location.

The Telegraph
There’s something warm and reassuring about the hotel’s slightly cluttered antique décor and it has a couple of ace cards up its sleeve.
