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.

Powered by AI

The Ariele Hotel is often praised for its prime location near the train station and river, as well as its value, offering a balance of affordability and comfort. While some guests consider it slightly isolated, many revel in the property's tranquil atmosphere and modern amenities. The hotel's cleanliness and attentive service regularly receive commendations, with staff members noted for their exceptional care. However, guests have called out the disturbance from construction noise. Rooms are celebrated for their spaciousness and elegance, though some feel the toiletries could be improved.

don't know where to start ... what a lovely , friendly team , we were there to celebrate my partner David birthday and we were upgraded to a Junior Suite, which was a pleasant and unexpected surprise, all the team have a happy to help attitude from the moment you check in right through to you checking out.
felt like at home away from home , bedroom clean ,specious and we learnt the hotel had been recently refurbished
You can expect high quality bedding , bright , airy bedrooms and and and fantastic breakfast from cooked option to buffet with selection of meat , cheese , salmon with glass of bubbles ( why not ?) ( Irina thank you for lovely smile every morning )
seriously great experience and we will be definitely choosing this hotel when visiting Florence again.
Well done!

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.

We found Hotel Ariele to be beautiful, comfortable and convenient to the areas we wanted to tour.
There is construction going on across the street, but we traveled with our noise canceling headphones.
The included breakfast was very nice, having a wonderful array of choices. And the cold natural water provided in the room’s refrigerator, and replaced/refilled daily, was a considerate touch.

The area around the hotel was under construction but inside the hotel was absolutely beautiful, the rooms were always kept clean and the staff was amazing and attentive to my mother who has celiac. If we’re ever in Florence again we’re definitely going to stay again. Great walking distance to the downtown area as well as little cafes roughly a 15-30 min walk to downtown

Wonderful family stay. Valet picked and dropped car off which was very convenient. Staff was very accommodating with restaurant recs and guidance. Room was well air conditioned, two teen boys and us stayed in family room comfortably, beds very comfortable. Breakfast was a highlight made sure not to miss it each day, staff again was wonderful, took a tray up to the boys still sleeping.
Overall perfect location 10 minute walk (we walked everywhere) quiet and clean.

Ideal location as just on the edge of the old town so it was quiet, especially when enjoying a drink in the enchanting terrace garden. The staff were lovely, the breakfasts filling and the rooms comfortable and well equipped. The hotel staff were knowledgeable about the area and were able to make recommendations of places to eat as the hotel did not provide evening meals.

Very clean and comfortable, spacious rooms. Good breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Anthony at reception even brought me a laptop charger from home as I had issues with mine, so kind!

The location is a bit out of the way, about 20 mins walk from the center which seemed long in the hot summer months but in cooler weather the walk would be fine.

We loved Hotel Ariele. The property is very well maintained and it feels like you are staying at a spa. The beds were so very comfortable. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Great location- very quiet but easy to walk anywhere in Florence. Lovely to walk along the Arno, which is only a block away.

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.
