For it's perfect location, the charming decoration of the rooms and the kindness of its administrators, this is absolutely the best place to stay in Florence. Residenza Castelli is on the fourth floor of a traditional palazzo 50m from Ponte Vecchio, 150m from Il Porcellino market, 250m from Piazza della Signoria and 500m from the Duomo. Yet, it's secluded from... More

It is very central located (just next to ponte vecchio), at the third floor of a classic building. Although we arrived at 22.00, Gio was waiting for us and helped us out with parking solutions. This B&B is very modern and cozy and full equipped with everything you may need(electric kettle, coffees, water, toiletries, free wifi..). The rooms are very... More

We were in Italy for 2 weeks and Residenza Castelli was the B&B that provided us with the best and memorable experience. The location of the property was absolutely central. The shopping alleys, museums, major landmarks and restaurants are literally just below the B&B. The room was spacious for two and the shower facility was great. There was also cleaning... More

This is a hidden little gem located right in the heart of activity in Firenze. There's only five rooms, and they're located on one floor of a mixed use office and apartment building about fifty yards from the River Arno and the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. You access it by walking through a little piazza shared by a church and some... More

Gio and the guys did a nice reno on an old property... The rooms are spacious (under EU standards), well decorated with those Star Trek shower stalls with 6 different shower programs and higher end toilettries... I like the fact that the waters, candy bars, chis and such are free as most hotels try to ding you on that stuff... More

I agree totally with other recent guest comments. This is an oasis. Great location, Lorenzo and Gio are simply outstanding. They couldn't have been helpful. Anything from arranging day trips to recommending restaurants which we attended because of how good they were. Rooms were of a good size and clean. Location to everything is superb and we will definitely stay... More

Really great location, less than 1 minute from Ponte vecchio. Room was very clean and nicely decorated, bed was also very comfortable. Owner Lorenzo was very helpful and freindly, telling us best places to see and where to eat. Nice complementary tea and chocolates. Also had the option to have our room cleaned every morning. Big flatscreen Tv with sky... More

Booked this b&b after reading other reviews on trip advisor, glad I did as it is a little gem. Nestled right in the heart of Florence 30 seconds from the old bridge it is a great location. E-mailed them to let them know what time we were arriving and they were there waiting. Nice complementary tea and water in the... More

Basic room, refurbished and clean. Definitely a value-for-money option; we paid 54euro/night. Perfect location -next to Ponte Vechio. Very friendly and happy-to-help owner, Lorenzo. The room has all you need, even an ipod docking station. The entrance to the hotel (5-room hotel is on one floor, in an old building block) was terrifying; old and dirty. When you get to... More
