We were a group of 5 friends who spent two nights in Florence in this hotel. Positives: Very comfortable, clean and staff were extremely friendly. Areas of improvement: The walls were too thin that we were asked to keep it down although we were just talking in a normal tone.

Location is good, very close to the train station (note the address of the hotel as it is hidden and you must go through a passageway) and just 5 minutes walk away from the duomo. The apartment itself is really cosy and has all the necessary amenities. The sofa bed was large enough for 2 persons. Toilet had toothbrush, razor,... More

This was perfect for our large group in April/May 2015. We each had our own apartment and could gather in the courtyard under a tent to socialize. The location was perfect - walking distance to all of Florence with some great restaurants nearby and just a couple of blocks from the train station. The staff was amazing! The breakfast was...

2 storey room. Very spacious. Feels serene once you step into the courtyard leading to the room - all the hussle and buzzles just vanish into thin air. It is a sanctuary to relax after a hard day of walking and travelling, Negatives: part of the terrain to the train station is not very friendly to luggages. Service during breakfast... More

Me and my family (Group of 10) stayed here last year and liked it so we booked for it again this year. This time we booked two split level apartments accommodating for 5 persons each. This hotel is located only less than 5 minutes walking distance to the SMN Train Station and it suits us well because we traveled to... More

The location was fabulous-- very good value for money. A number of decent restaurants closeby, five minutes to the Mercato Centrale, and no more that 10-15 walk to all of the main attractions. Also, a short walk to the train station and a car hire place. We had split-level apartment that worked very well. The set up was a queen... More

Room was spacious, clean and airy. Location brilliant - close to main attractions, close to train and bus stations. Staff were great - gave us some excellent dinner recommendations. Breakfast was nice too. As for negatives the Wi-fi was not good. It barely worked. The bathroom does flood a little but ...meh...no biggie. Overall - wife and I will be... More

The Residence La Contessina is hidden behind a narrow covered driveway, a couple of blocks from the train station and within walking distance of all major sites in Florence. There are many restaurants nearby as well. We traveled with our two college-age daughters who slept in the upstairs (comfortable) bed; we took the sofa sleeper which was definitely cot-like. We...
