Perfect location as it is in walking distance to all the major art, culture, and shopping locations. Clean and comfortable rooms, with a lovely breakfast buffet. On site parking is also available. We would have preferred a less firm mattress and softer pillows with one or two English channels on the TV; but really who has time to sleep or... More

Stayed here for only 2 nights with my family of 4 as the other hotel booked for the next 4 nights was full. This place didnt feel like a hotel; it felt more like a homestay. Just 5 mins walk from the train station, we were greeted warmly and given an early check-in by Sarah and her family which we... More

I visited Florence and stayed here for two weeks as part of a group tour. The room was immaculate with a large bathroom and a small kitchenette. The staff were exceptionally helpful and the courtyard space was a great place for our group to convene and "wine" down. I was in a corner room and we had a little trouble... More

La Contessina is a wonderful apartment/hotel tucked in behind the hustle-bustle of beautiful Florence. Close to the train station, historic sites, wonderful restaurants and unbelievable shopping. Easy walking distance to everything. The owners, daughters and son-in-laws manage the facility 24-hours a day. Breakfast was always a treat with the local meats, cheeses, frittatas, bruschettas, fruits and, of course, wonderful pastries.... More

I booked this hotel on the strength of previous Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Right in the centre. Comfy and good value for money. The rooms are not sound-proofed that well but due to its setting on a quiet muse this was not an issue for us.

We stayed here, the eight of us, comprising four adults and four children, for one week, and I must say, the stay was memorable and fun! Situated very strategically 5 minutes away from the SMN Firenze station, and in the heart of Florence, where everything a virgin traveller to Florence would want to explore, this family run place is super...

Perfect location, friendly and helpful staff, great room, fabulous breakfasts in a lovely room, even the occasional appearance of a cat who was not averse to a fuss! Only small hitch was the original difficulty in finding it due to the dual numbering system of the houses, although fortunately the 2 number 71s are not far apart.

We picked this hotel because it was close to everything and within walking distance of the train station. However upon arriving, it was raining very hard so we took a cab. Cost for the cab including our 2 bags was about 8 euros and was worth it to not get soaked. We only stayed one night as we were on... More
