This hotel is walking distance to everything you would want to visit in the city. 5 minutes to train station, 10 minutes to Duomo. There are many restaurants in the area to choose from. The owners are the friendliest people you will ever meet. The room we stayed in was in a separate building, recently remodeled, had AC and was... More

I stayed there with a friend for a 2 week italian course and the hotel was amazing. Perfect location: 10 min away from the Duomo on foot, 5 min away from Mercato Centrale and the train station, and from there 15 min away from most museums and highlights of Florence. In a street with resturants, a laundry place and supermarkets.... More

We had an overall excellent experience here. The apartment was clean and spacious. The staff was extremely helpful with all our requests, especially making dinner reservations for us. Breakfast was wonderful...all you could think of to eat. In addition, the staff was very accommodating of the gluten free diet that some of us follow. They came out the first morning... More

Loved this family run inn. It is in a great location. Walking distance to the Duomo, Uffizi, pedestrian market and other points of interest. The staff was hospitable and helpful. I would definitely recommend this inn to others.

Great location, near the railway/bus terminal and city centre and a lovely family run place, really nice people. i like the split level bedroom/general area. TVs are quite small, tough to follow anything like sport unless you are quite close up. There was no washing machine, we hoped to be able to wash some clothes at this stage of our... More

We had a great stay in this hotel. The staff was very accommodating to my friend who just recently was released from the hospital and they made sure her accommodations met her needs. The staff was extremely helpful on directions and local places to eat. I would prefer to stay in the apartment room again although the standard rooms were... More

I have been privileged to call La Contessina my home away from home in Florence for many years. One of the most positive points is the opportunity to visit with the Pelagotti family all of whom are experienced hosts to travelers from around the world. Then there is the superb location........right in the heart of Florence and within easy walking... More

Lots of room and very nice staff. The location is very prime and is a 20 minute walk to the Academia and 15 minute walk to Ufizi gallery. Very large breakfasts as well with pastries, juices, coffee. We very much enjoyed our stay.

This is my seventh year to bring American tourists to La Contessina. Over 150 guests have been more than happy with the accommodations there and in September and October I will be bringing 27 more. It is such a pleasure to work with the Pelagotti family and the lodging at the residence certainly enhances my Tuscany tour package. I can... More
