In the historic center of Florence stands an imposing medieval fortress that has maintained its original appearance, despite the long time that has passed since its construction. If you try to touch the walls of this castle, you'll feel the past and the endless stories it has to tell. 

On the right side of the castle is the famous Guelph Tower that is a must-see. From the top there's a beautiful lookout point, one of the highest in Florence, and people have been enjoying that view for more than 730 years! 

Like many other Florentine palaces, also this one belonged to a very influential family of Florence, the Buondelmonti’s. After the fall of the castle located outside of Florence, the family moved into the city and lived in this historic building. Thanks to this family and to the efforts of Niccolò Acciaiuoli, this palace and its tower increased their prestige. 

Are you unsure about whether you prefer a simple and modern style, or a refined and elegant one? Are you having a hard time choosing? Don't worry, because here at Hotel Torre Guelfa you can find both! 

The beauty of Florentine history, accompanied by that modern touch, a perfect union. 

If you really want to love Florence, listen to the stories, and admire the beauty, there is no other place that you would want to be after staying here.
