The Westin Excelsior
€€€€+ | 5 Star | Luxurious and Grand | Ponte Vecchio | Rooftop Restaurant
The Westin has many great properties throughout the world and this one is no exception. The structure is massive with many rooms of varied typologies. There’s a rooftop restaurant, Se Sto on Arno Rooftop, that has some of the best views in Florence.
If you’re looking for a large accommodation with tons of amenities in the center, the Westin is a great option. The restaurant is fantastic, which comes at a price but it’ll likely be a life-long memory!
Hotel degli Orafi
€€€ | 4 Star | Rooftop Bar | Ponte Vecchio/Uffizi
Hotel degli Orafi has a rooftop bar that’s partially enclosed with an incredible view of the city and the Florence Duomo. Head up here for aperitivo and views that will wow you. The hotel has spacious rooms with iconic wooden beams on the ceiling that make for an authentic Italian feel.
And if you have a bigger budget, then book their “Room With a View” where you’ll have that private balcony pictured above all to yourself. Private breakfast, cool morning air, epic Duomo views? Yes, please!
Hotel La Scaletta Florence
€€ | 3 Star | Rooftop Restaurant | Pitti Palace
Hotel La Scaletta is a really nice find in Florence. It’s just over Ponte Vecchio from the happening center of Florence, which means you can walk to the Uffizi or the Florence Cathedral. At the same time, it’s tucked back into the Santo Spirito neighborhood, which is a little less crowded but has tons of great restaurants and places to grab a drink.
You also get amazing views of the Medici Boboli Gardens and the more rural side of Florence. For me, this is a great choice for families with kids or travelers who like to see a different side of Florence.

Hotel Torre di Bellosguardo
€€€ | 4 Star | Countryside | Pool | Rooftop Dining
Hotel Torre di Bellosguardo is a great option for an adventurous traveler looking for some green space. It’s definitely not in the center of Florence but still has a Florence address.
Florence goes from city to countryside much faster than a city like Rome, which is one of the things I like about it. If you have kids and want to have a memorable and slightly different experience than most, consider Bellosguardo or another hotel just outside of Florence.
Grand Hotel Minerva
€€€€ | 4 Star | Rooftop Pool | Rooftop Bar and Dining
Grand Hotel Minerva is a great option if you want a central location in Florence, a pool, and rooftop dining. All you need in return is a big budget for hotels!
The hotel is a nice and reasonably priced considering just how nice it is, the included amenities, and the location. In June, you’ll likely pay over €400/night, which puts it in the top tier, but if you have that type of cash to spend then this one literally checks all the boxes.
