As I sit in this room on my vacation I am disgusted by the fact that this room is hot smelly And worst of all so noisy that you can't get sleep Or hear yourself think if you tried. Ear plugs music TV nothing works To drown out the incredibly loud street noise People partying in the street traffic going... More

Quick one nighter in Firenze cheap and somewhat dated however some people like that sort of thing. Reception was helpful including a reservation at a fantastic restaurant for a fiorentina t bone. Room and bathroom tiny and only one pillow, shower is not built for the larger chap and point to note charging plug sockets are hard to find and... More

Best location in Firenze! Who wouldn't want Fendi next door and Prada outside their window! Not only was location amazing, the breakfast was exceptional for a hotel breakfast! Will stay here again on our next trip!

Very nice hotel close to the sights of Florence (actually wedged between various designer stores). The hotel has a working elevator (so you don't have to carry your heavy bags up and down stairs after you have been shopping :-) ), and breakfast is included. The breakfast includes croissants, yogurt, cereal, pastry, cheese, meat, coffee, etc., and was all very... More

We were advised to stay here by a local and we loved the location, but I'm sure our friend had not stayed there in years. Our room was OK but very dated and very noisy on the front of the building . Our room did not have enough plugs so we had to unplug the TV to have enough outlets... More

I choose this hotel after reading and filtering through hours of TA reviews. I was not disappointed. The charming elevator worked just fine and I had a GREAT room on the top floor. And it was HUGE, including the bathroom. I did not find anything shabby or in bad condition in this hotel. The only critique is the wifi was... More

I've just returned from a three night stay at the La Residenza, Florence. The hotel is located slap-bang in the middle of the up-market shopping area, with Prada located directly opposite. The hotel is accessed by an ancient elevator which we found to be out of order when we arrived. Once myself and my 72 yr old parents had carried... More

First let me say, it's tough for me to write this review. The staff at HLR are VERY VERY nice people and certainly very helpful. And the location is superb and the breakfast I thought was good too. However, the condition of the hotel is definitely not the same as the pics on the internet. The place probably hasn't been... More

We stayed two nights, It was very hot outside day and night and the room was cool from the quiet aircon and it had a fridge (no kettle). This was the lowest price room we had on out Italy tour and it was probably the largest room with a nice big bed and arm chairs, unfortunately the bathroom was probably... More

The location of the La Residenza is excellent, in the great value for the money. Free wifi (on the upper floor the signal was not that good, but it worked). The almost antique building in which the hotel is situated gives romantic atmosphere, the rooms are in a good condition for such an old mansion, bathroom is spacy with a... More
