As others have said, FANTASTIC location, modern clean rooms, updated bathrooms, great bath products, etc etc. However, if you are looking for a traditional bed and breakfast, this might not be the place for you. By no fault of their own, Residenza Castelli has been labeled a B&B by TripAdvisor when really, it is more like a 5 room hotel... More

This B&B is highly recommended as its located just behind the Ponte Veccio in the tiny piazza Santo Stefano! Lorenzo was very helpful to answer our questions and to advice us where to go! The room is modern and spacious and even you don' t have breakfast, there is coffee to drink and some biscuits to eat.

Just to add a second title.."Can't wait to come again!". Everything is perfect! The spot, at the very heart of the city, 5 meters away from Ponte Vecchio. The rooms, all furniture brand new, everything is so clean, and the view from the rooms makes you feel like you travelled back in time. The service, everything we asked of the... More

All I can say is that we stayed in a perfect location, at the heart of old Florence. Lorenzo at the reception and/or ready for us anytime we need, great guy (he's very kind and punctual!), gave us good tips. We already knew Florence a bit and we speak Italian, but we listened to him for to learn new places... More

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
