    Historical Traveler Reviews Relais Uffizi Florence

    Charming little place, great location


    As everyone here has already written, this is a charming and friendly small hotel with an outstanding proximity to most of the sites. Rooms are pretty well-sized, and on their own are relatively spartan. Our bathroom was huge and very nice, with excellent fixtures. The breakfast was standard, but the view from the breakfast room overlooking the piazza was great. Alessandro was very friendly and helpful, helping us reserve restaurants and museums (to avoid the long lines). Although our room was adjacent to the small alley way where there isn't much foot traffic, the walls are somewhat thin and we could hear motorcycles and talking on the street at night. Overall, great location and good value make this a good choice for Florence.

    Perfect in every way


    The Relais Uffizi was everything others on this web-site said it was. It was charming, quaint and very clean AND the location was superb. However, I must add that I have never encountered such helpful and friendly people in all my trips abroad. Everyone, without exception, at the Uffizi was so nice it was hard to believe. I could never say enough about this hotel; truly one of the best I have ever stayed in.

    Wonderful Hotel, Relais Uffizi is a 'sure bet'


    We spent 4 nights at this hotel at the end of Dec. It was truly wonderful. Our room was huge. 3 times the size of a normal Italian room. Large marble baths, towel warmers, canopy beds. The location is perfect and in the heart of Florence. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh. Hint: Ask for a room away from the reception area, as you may get some noise otherwise. Great hotel at an unheard of Florentine price.

    Best hotel of the trip


    Very accommodating, reasonable rate for July, wonderful staff, excellent location. Only the breakfast was a bit lacking. Highly recommended!

    Great find!


    Found Relais Uffizi through Karen Brown website and I was not disappointed. Ideal location, walking distance to all key sites -- including a beautiful walk across the Ponte Vecchio, up to Fort Belvedere and Piazza Michelangelo for fabulous views of the city and a break from the crowds.

    Relais Uffizi is on a small side street centrally located, while still providing a quiet nights rest, and the rooms were clean, roomy, and very comfortable. Not too lavish, but high quality for the rate. I would definitely stay there again!

    Great little hotel


    The Relais Uffizi is a wonderful little hotel with a location that would be hard to beat anywhere in Florence. It's on a peaceful little lane that is off of the Piazza della Signoria. The Piazza is a gathering place that is complete with restaurants, shops, and places to rest your weary feet under statues that you studied about in your art history courses. Right around the corner from the hotel is the copy of "David" under the Loggia where you can sit and eat your lunch and people watch to your hearts content. The hotel's rooms are comfortable and the staff is one of the friendliest that we encountered in Italy.

    The rooms are large and though they aren't as fancy as the high priced rooms the we stayed in in Venice, I felt much more at home here. The hotel even kept my luggage for a week until we returned to leave. Yes, I knew I'd over packed before I even made the flight into Florence.

    That is a huge "DON'T" if you are planning on ever catching a train to travel around the country. My daughter and I consolidated our things into one bag...and even that was too large to haul around. It will ruin your trip! We just got back and when I called my husband at home, I told him about our feet (ouch!) he sat on our sofa and told me not to be such a sissy. I told him to go to the beach at home, pour a bucket of water in his shoes, get a 70 pound suitcase and haul it up and down the rock jetties in 97 degree heat for 18 hours a day and THEN he'd know what I was talking about! This summer the heat in Italy is unbelievable...when I'd remark that my feet were so sore and swollen they'd say it was the heat and humidity...well, I'm from south Alabama and it doesn't get more humid and hot than where I live...I think their water has a higher sodium content, combined with the walking on cobblestones and general condition of your feet from a long flight over, it's a recipe for foot disaster. Get the Dr. Scholl's big blister pads, a roll of sticky medical tape, and the best high tech walking sandals that you can afford, and you should be set! Back to the Relais Uffizi, I can't recommend it highly enough for a moderate priced hotel (or not!) It's charming, has a good Italian style breakfast, and the location really can't be beat. You won't even be in your room except to sleep anyway! The shopping in Florence is great and the sights are remarkable. It's almost too much for your eyes to take in. The people are friendly and of course, the food is great. You don't need to eat at a real restaurant to get a great meal, as a matter of fact, it's a waste of money. You can get about the same thing on the street for one tenth of the price and sit outside and enjoy beauty like you've never seen. Remember, good shoes, blister pads, no luggage over what you can run with for an hour, and an adventurous attitude, and you'll have the time of your life!

    True Gem!


    wonderful boutique hotel! great location, staff, and huge rooms....

    just make sure not to book a room close the the concierge desk due to the buzzer from the outside door.

    Loved this place! Great value.


    Chose the Relais Uffizi based on a Karen Brown review and was so pleased with the decision. Incredible location around the corner from the Uffizi Museum -- tucked away, so it wasn't too noisy. Small hotel ambiance. Clean & surprisingly large rooms. Very reasonable rates. Pleasant, helpful (but small) staff. Not ideal if you need a business center (though there's an Internet center across the Piazza) or lots of extra amenities. Breakfast included in a dining room off the living room -- which faces out over one of the most famous and lovely piazzas in all of Florence. This place is a real find. Karen Brown comes through again!

    Dinner for the night was good for most, but not for Kirk..... tried a Cuttle fish pasta dish with black sauce. Let's just say his adventures in trying new food might just have been curtailed! Emery won for best ...

Thank goodness there were three levels where we were able to sit and rest before walking up the next flight of stairs! It was another amazing view! I liked the view from the dome because it was an amazing view of the city, but the bell tower had an amazing view of the dome! After we all ...

    ... queue obviously got priority so their line moved so much faster. Fair enough they paid four euro more than us. We finally get in and try to appreciate the renaissance art - lots of religious type paintings and statues. As we move from the first room the second room is where the piece de resistance is. The David statue is centre stage so of course, the crowd flocks to the statue like moths to a flame. There are some other cool statues along the way so we take some time appreciating ...
