Best Florence Hotels with Rooftop Bars & Restaurants in 2021
What is better than an Italian restaurant in Italy? One with a great view!
The Westin Excelsior
€€€€+ | 5 Star | Luxurious & 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 is a rooftop restaurant, Se Sto on Arno Rooftop, that has some of the best views in Florence.
If you are looking for a large accommodation with tons of amenities in the center, the Westin is a great option. The restaurant is fantastic which comes with a price but likely will be a life-long memory!
Hotel degli Orafi
€€€ | 4 Star | Rooftop Bar | Ponte Vecchio/Uffizi
I have not been to this panoramic bar personally, but it appears to be a rooftop location that is partially enclosed with very good views of the city. This hotel is one of our recommended hotels regardless of the rooftop bar which would make it a solid choice.

Hotel La Scaletta Florence
€€ | 3 Star | Rooftop Restaurant | Pitti Palace
Hotel La Scaletta is a really nice find in Florence. It is just over the Ponte Vecchio from the “happening” center of Florence which means you can walk to Uffizi or the Florence Cathedral. At the same time, it is 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 is 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 “outside of Florence” style hotel.
Grand Hotel Minerva
€€€€ | 4 Star | Rooftop Pool & Bar/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 lot of money!
The hotel is a very nice hotel and actually reasonably priced considering how nice it is, all the amenities, and the location. In June you’ll 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.
