        Awful. You can find the better option for 70 euro per night. The room is dirty, the shower is weird. Few receptionists speak English. Never again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only good thing about the hotel is its location (close to Santa Maria railway station and main touristic attractions) The breakfast is terrible - they give two pieces of bread with melted butter and coffee (there were also cornflakes, but they are standing there for ages so I am not sure about their expiration date). The hotel itself is located on one floor (the second floor of the tiny building). NO ELEVATOR. Also, walls are very very thin so your hear EVERYTHING that is happening in other rooms. (One couple was.... how to say... making love from 12 am till 5 am, and we heard all the voices, which was very very AWFUL, so we couldn't sleep.) Please, STAY AWAY from this hotel if you don't want to receive bad memories of your vacation in such a wonderful city.

        Hotel Fani is located at very convenient place. Room is big, comfortable and nice.Breakfast is ordinary and enough for moning feed.I think for such pay it is superb hotel.

        There is little bit noisy in this hotel. But I think a lot of hotels at Firenze have thin walls.

      • Single
        6.2

        The location was good - not too far from Train Station but also not too far from everything else.

        The breakfast was a bit light on - there could have been a bit more food on offer. Also the walls are quite thin so I was woken up every morning at around 7 by the sound of the cappuccino machine.

        Excellent location.

        Beware of dog and cat excrement on terrasse (rooms 4 and5) - you sholud NOT open the window - it stinks like hell!!!! Staff cleaned it up partly, but the smell remains.

        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

      • Couple
        8.2

        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.

      • Couple
        6.6

        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.

      • Older travelers
        5.0

        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.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Superb location near the Ponte Vechio and wonderful tower bar with views cross the city. Paying for the position and the tower as it is an old palazzo with little modern comforts. Bathroom and room basic but clean and everything there. Spending £160+ for a night I had hoped for a little luxury but centre of Florence!

        Don't attempt to drive there partiularly with satnav as the one way streets have all been changed. It is in a pedestrian only zone which if your italian is not good will put you off. We ended up parking walking in and there garage service had to come and rescue us after two hours circling the city facing one way streets whenever satnav tried to guide us.

        10.0

        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!

        Friendly helpful staff - good location. Good decor and nice breakfast area.

        One room had no mini bar which seemed to be a surprise to the staff. The breakfast was very disappointing and could have been far more interesting - unpleasant machine coffee could actually be replaced by excellent espresso but one had to ask as it wasn't offered. Wireless Internet in the rooms itself would also make life easier but at least it was free.

        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.

      • Single
        9.2

        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.

        Amazing rooftop bar with beautiful view of Florence, very large room for a European hotel, friendly staff, great central location
