Spent 7 days here to really see Florence and this boutique hotel/apartment was the ideal place for our base. We had no car and could walk to all the old town antiquities, to many restaurants and quaint cafes, and to all the shopping one could ask for! The staff was very helpful and all speak English well. Accommodations were simple... More

Pleasantly surprised. Good space, split level, teenagers slept upstairs. Very clean and homely feel. Lovely owners, very helpful and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to our friends.

Secure parking, family rooms, and a central location. A perfect safe base from which to explore the magical city of Florence. A friendly, extremely helpful family run Residence. They even posted my wife's earrings back to the UK! (that we accidentally left in our room).

Finding hotels that will accommodate more than 3 in a room can be difficult in Europe. We lucked out by finding La Contessina. We are a family of 6 with 4 teenagers. They put us in their largest room with an added cot. The room was very clean and welcoming. The staff at the front desk couldn't have been friendlier.... More

I'm just leaving this place right now and it has been truly a great experience. The rooms are very clean, the people here are really wonderful and provide great service to their patrons. Morning breakfast is always DELISH. I definitely recommend this place plus it has a great location within walking distance from all major attractions. A++

We selected La Contessina based on the recommendation of a friend of a friend here on TripAdvisor. We spent 3 nights in one of their double hotel rooms in mid-July and had a wonderful time! Every interaction that we had with every member of the family and staff was professional, respectful and helpful. From recommending nearby dining establishments to reserving... More

This hotel is walking distance to everything you would want to visit in the city. 5 minutes to train station, 10 minutes to Duomo. There are many restaurants in the area to choose from. The owners are the friendliest people you will ever meet. The room we stayed in was in a separate building, recently remodeled, had AC and was... More

I stayed there with a friend for a 2 week italian course and the hotel was amazing. Perfect location: 10 min away from the Duomo on foot, 5 min away from Mercato Centrale and the train station, and from there 15 min away from most museums and highlights of Florence. In a street with resturants, a laundry place and supermarkets.... More

We had an overall excellent experience here. The apartment was clean and spacious. The staff was extremely helpful with all our requests, especially making dinner reservations for us. Breakfast was wonderful...all you could think of to eat. In addition, the staff was very accommodating of the gluten free diet that some of us follow. They came out the first morning... More

Loved this family run inn. It is in a great location. Walking distance to the Duomo, Uffizi, pedestrian market and other points of interest. The staff was hospitable and helpful. I would definitely recommend this inn to others.
