Stayed for three days and loved it. The warmth of this family owned business was the standout; the cooked and continental breakfasts didn't hurt either. So maybe not the most luxurious but definitely the most cozy, well kept hotel I stayed in during my stay. Good value for money and bang in the middle of everything. Will go back.

Walking distance from the Santa Maria novella train station, this hotel is in a great location. Close to all the sights and good restaurants around you. There is a supermarket close by if you want to cook, there is an extra charge of 25euro if you use the kitchen facility in your apartment. Very clean and spacious apartment. The family... More

For those wanting a great place to relax and unwind after a day shopping and sightseeing in beautiful Florence, this is the place! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even helped park my big American SUV in their tiny parking area! Becauae I'm stationed in Italy for a few more years, the wife and I will be sure... More

We were a family of four and we had plenty of space in the apartment which was so clean. A lovely family run place to stay! Cannot say a... More

One of the nicest hotels I have ever lived at i Italy. We almost felt being in family with the owners. The same people were helpful with all from showing the way for the driver through narrow streets to the parking to serving us a great breakfast. When we left we almost felt that we knew them! A good place... More

Residence La Contessina was beyond all of our expectations. From the moment we stepped in and felt an oasis of quiet from the bustling streets of Florence, we could sense we were in good hands. We were responsible for a group of 13 (all staying at La Contessina) and the family and staff did everything possible to make all of... More
