An excellent B&B next to Florence railway station. Its at walk-able distance from all the places of interest. The lady at the reception was very helpful and gave us suggestion for restaurants and the places to visit. The room was very big and very comfortable. Highly recommended!

This B&B is so close to the train station that I passed by since I couldn't believe so. Before arrival, I received an email from La Residenza to guide me the way, but I still lost since their explanation confused my internal compass. Maybe my English is not good enough. Anyway, Florence is small and the B&B is in the... More

We are very pleased with this hotel. The building has a very old school lift but the room is clean n super spacious. Thumbs up! This is the only hotel we stayed in Italy that provides welcome drinks. There is a small supermarket at the ground level for us to buy water & drinks, something very important to us.

Some things are a little quirky, like having to unplug the frig to plug in the water heater. It's Europe, and your not paying $300 euro per night. Enough said. What makes this place special can be summed in two names, Raffaella and Giulia. Raffaella greeted us and showed us our room, brought us fruit, gave us a map with... More
