I was pleasantly surprised to find that this hotel was a mere two-minute walk from the train station. While the streets below were a little noisy, the rooms are well-insulated with a good window and pull-down shutter arrangement. The lovely lady who checked us in could not have been nicer and gave us wonderful recommendations for meals and sightseeing. This... More

This B&B was close to Santa Maria Novella train station (straight across street, past McDs for appx 1 block and check-in on 2nd floor - ring buzzer); the room was very clean and nicely decorated (described as "boutique") with French doors. The staff were THE BEST, very accommodating and would assist with any directions or concerns. Breakfast was included (given... More

As a family, we had always dreamed of visiting Florence and Venice. Planning a way of doing both in a short space of time would have been difficult without our stay at La Residenza dell'Orafo.

The residenza classifies itself as a B&B, so you expect a rather simple environment and not exactly business support. I choose it, as I knew that I would arrive in Firenze close to and possibly after midnight - and had to leave next morning from the train station (which is more or less across the street) at 6:40 in the...

This is more of a boutique hotel B&B. Its location is perfect and our room was lovely. It's within a very short walk (5 mins.) from the train station and is close to all the sights. It's the ideal location for walking to everything. Raphaella (please forgive me if I am not spelling the name right) was the most gracious... More

It was really close to train station, and pretty much to every must-see area in Florence. Rafealle (hotel manager) was so helpful and sweet. The rooms were really cute with lovely decoration. A great b&b overall!
