#269 of 431 hotels in Florence
Welcome to your home… To appreciate a house, it is of primary importance to know its history. The Hotel Ariele is built from two buildings of different ages: the first was constructed from an ancient tower dating back to the 1400’s, the second from a prestigious palace dating back to the 1700’s, formerly occupied by various embassies, including the Swiss embassy during the Kingdom of Italy and the residence of numerous Florentine families. Even today you can still breathe the air and the splendour of those times, in the large rooms with vaulted ceilings, in the intimacy of the common rooms or be embellished by splendid fireplaces of the time. The hotel was completely renovated in 2022 while respecting the charm of an ancient Florentine residence has given it a contemporary look with all the main and modern comforts without sacrificing its classical nature.

The Hotel Ariele had excellent customer service. The included breakfast was outstanding. There was such a great selection of fruits, yogurts, eggs, bacon, rolls (even whole wheat options) cakes, meats and cheeses as well as cappuccino and coffee to order. The personnel at the desk were also very helpful. The room was recently refurbished and was very comfortable.

We had a wonderful stay. Extremely friendly staff, we got the room right away, even though we came much earlier, Michella helped us with everything we needed. We made the best choice, the hotel is close to all the attractions of the city, yet it is in an elegant and quiet area. It is newly renovated with a beautiful garden where you can enjoy a delicious coffee. A special mention for the breakfast, the best of the whole two week trip through Italy. Absolutely flawless, well done Irina and her team!

We had a great stay for an 'energency' night where our flight was canceled and there was no capacity in the previous hotel. The staff at hotel Ariele is welcoming, caring and very approachable. We have arrived before check in time and our room was ready shortly after - in the meantime we have enjoyed coffee in the garden (what a nice addition for hotel in Florence!). The area is quiet and easy to access from a train station. We had a buggy and we find walking along the river less bumpy when we were walking to city centre. Hotel is newly refurbished and rooms are comfortable. Our A/C stopped working during night but room stayed cool enough to sleep comfortably. Breakfast in hotel Ariele was also nice with fresh fruit and larger selection of sweet and savory options. We didn't ask for cot as it was only one night stay but when we arrived in the room it was provided - which shows how thoughtful the staff is. I can also compare the stay to another hotel nearby where we have paid much higher price per night and room/bathroom weren't as new / clean, no shampoo / soap in the room after check in (we had to ask for it), A/C was broken and we were told it's turned off for season - only after couple of complains it was looked at. It was near a busy road so opening a window wasn't an option due to noise. Staff wasn't as approachable as in hotel Ariele. That experience made it unpleasant stay for price we have paid where in comparison what hotel Ariele offers in my opinion is adequate to price you pay in Florence. Next time we are in Florence we will definitely try to stay in hotel Ariele.

The atmosphere is beautiful. I love the location, fairly easy to reach by car (in central Florence it's not that easy), and it's a nice walk along Arno to reach the inner city. The staff is excellent, and breakfast is good. The nicest thing is to sit in the garden in the afternoon, under the palm trees, sip a little wine and read a good book while the city is cooling a bit. It is an old embassy (Swiss?), and they try to keep the building, but the rooms are getting a bit a worn down. Not that it's dirty or something like that. But some refurbishing is needed the coming years. But don't let that scare you off, the atmosphere is beautiful.
