Location is less than 5 minutes by foot from SMN Train Station. Lots of good places to eat around. Also within short walking distance to Mercato Centrale. We were a family of 4 with 2 boys (10 and 7) and the apartment at La Contessina provided a very comfortable place for us to come home to for 4 nights. Breakfast... More

Just a couple of minutes walk from station and close to major tourist attractions of Florence. Lovely staff and lovelier rooms. Breakfast spread was amazing and the breakfast room is in itself a delight. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very close to the train station. Situated on a nice laneway with restraunts and pubs. Short walks from the cathedral and Accademia gallery where the statue of David is located. Room was spacious and very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here if I were to travel to Florence again- which... More

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
