The location of Hotel Degli Orafi couldn't be better! Situated a block from the Ponte Vecchio & right on the Arno River, it's right in the middle of everything. The staff was more than accommodating & very nice. Our room was quite quaint & the rooftop has a great view of Florence. I would definitely recommend a stay!

The location of this boutique hotel is centrally located. The staff was lovely, the rooms were a little dated but nice and clean. The view from terrace where the bar is located is beautiful. I would definitely recommend a stay at Hotel Degli Orafi.

My husband booked this hotel because it was where they filmed one of my favourite films 'Room with a view'. However, I think I was as disappointed with my room (102) as Lucy Honeychurch. Our view from a first floor bedroom was blocked by the arcade which lines the Arno so you only get a partial view of the Arno...
