This was our second time staying at LaContessina. Absolutely the best place to stay in Florence. The entire family and staff go above and beyond to assist you in any way. The apartments are very roomy. The convenience of the train station and the main area of Florence are just a few steps away. Highly recommend for anyone going to... More

Stayed here 4 years ago and liked it so we booked it again this trip. We messed up our reservation and they went way above and beyond to work things out for us and accommodate us. Staff is very friendly and helpful with questions about directions, attractions, restaurants, shopping etc. Nice breakfast room and buffet.

What a wonderful quite homey place right in the midst of this busy city. The owners and their family members make up the staff here and they were all so accomodating in every way. They made special exceptions for our group if we were leaving early for a day trip, buy having breakfast ready early and offering any assistance with... More

We stayed at a triple room for two night and it was so lovely. Plenty of space and very clean. Staff are very helpful and welcoming. Awesome location, so closed to train station yet very very quiet. Highly recommend those who are coming to Firenze!

Ok, I'm not a precious person by any stretch, and am pretty tolerant, but the walls here are paper thin. I could hear every word the people next to us said. Not that they were loud - their voices just carried straight through the walls and into our room. Also, our bedroom appeared to share a wall with next door's... More

Friendly, accommodating, and helpful staff. Good location to train station and walking distance to everything. My only complaints are slow internet, and that it gets hot in late April and the A/C was not activated yet so we were uncomfortable until about 2am when the room finally cooled down. Overall a great place as long as you don't rely on... More

The best thing about this aparthotel is its location, just a few minutes walk from the station, shops and the Duomo, yet it is completely sheltered from the noise and bustle of the city. You cannot hear any city noise or traffic in your room. However you can hear other guests as the walls seem very thin, so if you... More

We, a family of four, spend four nights in this Apartment-hotel and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The rooms was spacious and comfortable, the breakfast simply extraordinary and the service impeccable. Another big point was the possibility to park the car directly in front of the hotel, without the need to enter the ZTL, but still being only minutes away from... More

Very reasonable price with spacious room, staff are friendly and the room is clean. Located in the middle of the city center, hence it is very near to all historial places, shopping, etc. Also just a 5 minutes walk to the main train/bus station, so very convenient to anywhere you want to.

We stayed in a family room for 2 nights in April. The hotel is just 10 minutes walk from the train station. The hotel staff are very helpful and cheerful. The rooms are very nice and well maintained. Only thing is that it has just one bathroom and if you are 4-5 people staying in the apartment, you need to... More
