    Superb

    The staff welcomed us and were always friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location was wonderful, with easy access to what we were wanting to see and do. The Internet lounge was comfortable, but the highlight was the tower. The view of the city from the tower was spectacular, and bar in the evening was a wonderful place to have a glass of wine and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets. Christina was warm and friendly. We want to come back!

    The sink leaked on our last day, and the shower could have used a bit more water pressure.

    In the centre of a historical part of a city. Very much a quiet place. Ancient construction. a viewing platform on a tower, with fine a panoramic kind on a city

    Very poor breakfast

    Fabulous

    This is a fanatastically well located hotel in a quiet road only a few blocks in every direction from all of the sites and shops in Florence. The staff were very helpful and spoke pretty good English, there is also a lift and free wifi. The best surprise was the tower where you can enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying the spectacular view over the city.

    In room safe facilities would have been nice.

    Good

    The staff were very helpful and it was close to the shopping district.

    It was a little hard to find when you first got to Florence but once you knew where it was hidden it was easy to get back.

    The Hotel was absolutely fine. The medieval touch of the building, a nice living room with internet access and a wonderful view from the tower, which is easily accessible day and night.

    In the light of 280 Euros for two persons and two nights we were really disappointed about our rooms. No daylight, very spartanically equipped and two separate beds, which you fear to destroy during cohabitation.

    Hotel Torre Guelfa was a perfect choice for us. We've been to Florence once before and we liked this hotel the best. We had a slightly upgraded room which was beautiful and very large! The third floor has a beatiful sitting room and that's where you find the stairs to the tower and two beautiful sitting areas at the top. We had drinks before dinner and after dinner - the bar at the top stays open late on Fridays! You can see the entire city from the top of the tower. The hotel is a wonderful combination of old and new. And the location is absolutely perfect - near the Uffizio, Ponte Vechio, and the Duomo...and great shopping!

    Very comfortable room--ideally located for sight-seeing and close to restaurants. Very nice common areas--good breakfast--service was excellent.

    I wish the rooftop bar were open every night.

    Superb

    This hotel has a lot of character, offers stunning view from the roof-top terrace and is situated in an excellent location. Staff is very kind and helpful.

    I would have loved a little gym or ideally a swimming pool to stretch a muscle, but I understand that it is very difficult to find extra space in the old town buildings. Overall it was a very positive experience.

    Location was perfect.

    There was some machinery noise which we could not work out. Breakfast was fair and the room small.

    Exceptional

    The location just off the Ponte Vecchio is excellent down a quiet small street. The rooms are lovely and the tower bar is a really unique addition to this hotel. They will make reservations for museums and tours for you as well.

    The air conditioning in the 3rd floor was minimal where the parlor was located.
