Residenza del Orafo is a B&B located next to Santa Maria station, very good location for visiting Florence. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are quite big. The staff was very helpful. However, if you are planning to sleep, this is not the place for you. There is constant noise coming from outside, as the building is located on a... More

The location is good. Only less than 5 min walk from train station. And it's quiet at night. It's also near to good restaurants. Supermarket is just downstairs. The staff has been awesome and helpful. The room is clean and big. We stayed with a 4 year old daughter.

A sparkling "gem." If you do not select this place to enjoy Florence, you are missing out. It's a few minutes walk from the central train station, buses, etc. It's close to all the tourist sites you want to see.
