The Pelegotti family hospitality is so honest and sincere you feel you are at home. I would comeback and stay there anytime and recommend this place in the heart of Firenze to any visitor. The home made food is excellent. The staff go out of their way to assist you with incidental needs.

I recently stayed at La Contessina during a two week trip in Italy. La Contessina is a family owned establishment. Staying two weeks in an apartment in one location to travel was the way to go. This family is very friendly and will accommodate every need. There were a few days our tour group needed breakfast earlier than the scheduled... More

We were really happy with this hotel. It has its own car park and is 15 min walking distance from the center. Excellent and very friendly staff, great breakfast. Wifi only works at the reception. While there is no street noise the neighbours can be heard well. Overall great value for the money

We rented a 1 bedroom, 2 level apartment and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Had reserved 2 nights and due to Air France strike, had to call the day before arrival and tell them we couldn't get there on time. Staff were understanding and sympathetic and did not charge us for that 1st night even though it was... More

I found this on Trip Advisor and decided to book here for our three days in Florence. The hotel is very close to the Train station, go down Via Nazionale and turn left on Via Faenza and the hotel is a little ways on the left hand side of the street. You go through a tunnel (which is entrance to... More

We rented a one bedroom, two level apartment. The furnishings were average, bed OK but a duvey would have been nice. Good sized bathroom, no bathtub, full kitchen which we used as the Central market was close to buy fresh fruit, veggies, meat and cheeses. Walking distance to the main square where the cathedral and main art galleries and museums... More

My wife and I stayed here last month during our Europe trip after some helpful Tripadvisor research. We had a one bedroom apartment which was on three levels and very spacious . This property is a quiet oasis where you can escape the crowds when you come home from the days tripping around. Good restaurants nearby and pubs also. Laundromat... More

We stayed a week and it was wonderful. The staff was so nice and helpful. The breakfast was unbelievable, a lot of variety and so good. The location was unbeatable, just blocks from the train station on a cobblestone street. Great restaurants and shopping just steps away. Walkable to any part of the old city but just far off the...
