    Very good

    This is a charming and quirky hotel in an ancient building, so do not expect a holiday inn! Charming staff most with spoken English. Our room dark and shady.. Great for avoiding the midday sun. Tower bar gives wonderful views of Florence, and a relaxing cool point in the early evening. Bed firm and comfortable, continental breakfast acceptable and as anticipated. Air con might struggle in very hot weather, and the "safe" arrangements were a little worrying, but we thoroughly recommend it for it's charm, wonderfully central position, and reassuring and calm manager,Barbara.

    The only serious drawback was the noise of the. Street traders every morning early as they dragged their trailers through the narrow Passages beside the hotel. Suspect rooms might be chilly in winter.

    Best part about the hotel was the tower bar. Hands down the greatest place to have a drink. After climbing several stories in a narrow tower you step out onto a terrace that overlooks the entire city. Get there early, the bar fills up quick. The staff was excellent...For example, we made the mistake of trying to drive in Florence. Long story short, we couldn't get close to the hotel with our car but they arranged for a pick up by the valet/garage service. The room was clean, spacious and had magnificent high ceilings. The hotel was really classic Italian, very old but beautifully preserved. Location was in the heart of city. You could easily plan 3 days on foot in Florence from this location.

    The website made it seem like you could drive right up to the hotel with your car, but it seemed next to impossible with the limited traffic zones/pedestrian- only areas surrounding it.

    Good central location, building of some character, roof top terrace with fabulous city views, good breakfast choices, very helpful staff

    Some street noise at night but not excessively so, not sure what the air conditioning arrangements are during summer - would advise checking this out before booking

    Very good

    The staff was amazing! Very helpful, went out of their way many times for us. The breakfast was nice. The views from the rooftop bar were amazing.

    The WiFi was horrible. It was dark and cold. I prefer more natural light and a more homey feel to the hotels I stay in.

    The Hotel Torre Guelfa had a great location, just seconds from the Ponte Vecchio and close to all Florence attractions. The hotel was an easy walk, even with a suitcase of only 800 m and has a great tower bar where in the evening it is great to relax with a wine. Staff very friendly

    I had booked a standard room for our stay and was disappointed. The room was worn and sadly in need of updating. The overall air of the hotel was a little neglected.

    The staff was very helpful and friendly. Charming but dark hotel. Fabulous location. Easy to get to everything, especially the Ponte Vecchio!

    Room was small for two single women. We had to wait while they separated the beds. Very dark.

    There was nothing not to like about this hotel! The service was impeccable! Every staff member we encountered was friendly and always willing to help. the front desk staff was more than willing to assist with directions, reservations, and other needs. Luigi took time to direct us to many great eateries and other locations. Breakfast staff and room simply charming! Our breakfast "hostess" ( I wish I had asked her her name!) was elegant and charming! We were greeted with a genuine warm smile and kind words each morning. Coffee and breakfast items were delicious, more than adequate and very fresh. Our hotel room was lovely and spacious! Beds were extremely comfortable. Lovely common area/living room. No problems with wi-fi. Location is perfect! Within walking distance of most tourist attractions. Plenty of good restaurants nearby. Lovely wine bar with live music right outside the front door. Great little trattoria called Mangiafoco a couple of doors down. One of my favorite features of this hotel was the tower! A 360 degree view of Florence with tables to sit and enjoy some wine before dinner.

    We absolutely loved everything and everyone we met in the hotel and would love to return as soon as possible! We have already recommended this hotel to many others!

    Everything was perfect during our stay there. The location is perfect, right in the middle of the historic area. Our room was really beautiful with a princess-like bed. Breakfast was also nice in a sunny room. The best thing about the hotel is the terrace. At the top of the tower, there is an open-air terrace with a stunning view of Florence. Having a glass of wine there after a long day is just a perfect moment.

    staff excellent; they go above and beyond to offer great advice about restaurants, things to do, drives in the country side. luigi and the lady who runs the rooftop terrace are both superstars the bedrooms are spacious, high ceilings, clean, good quality bedding, 4 poster beds, living room, seperate bathroom outstanding location; very close to ponte vechio, many restos, historic center, museums, monuments, etc

    small point, but the coffee at breakfast was undrinkable. (seemed like made from instant granules) not the hotels fault, but flroence is a disaster to bring a car to. every hotel in the city is the same. budget eur30 extra/day for parking

    I travelled with my mother and we found the hotel was able to satisfy fully our needs. We enjoyed the position...all the main monuments and attractions were few steps away. The staff was friendly and available at anytime... The view from the tower was amazing...I will never forget that view of Florence. I highly recommend anyone to go.. Great value for what you get! If I go back to Florence I will choose to stay at this hotel again and again!

    The location of the hotel is wonderful and the physical hotel is charming. It is old world Italian charming with comfortable amenities including good wifi access. The view from the tower is an added surpise and offeres a delightful overview of the city The rates are a good value and rooms are very confortable and the breakfast which is included is very enjoyable. The staff is very knowledgable, friendly and helpful. They made good recommendations for local tours, meals and were also responsive to pre-stay questions aked online.

    What a fantastic hotel. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was good and just enough before a day of exploring Florence. The tower on the top was amazing and a perfect setting for a bottle of Chianti or a glass of beer either before or after dinner - or both!! We would love to stay here again.
