Great family run place. So close to the train station. Just a few minutes walk. Very friendly and welcoming. Spotlessly clean room. Breakfast buffet was no doubt the best I have had this trip. Most others have been pretty ordinary, but this was very very good. Would stay here again anytime, and recommend to anyone.

Booked this place last minute and the busiest time of year.Run by a very warm and welcoming family with a great breakfast. La Contessina was the perfect spot for our few days in Florence and I would definitely go back.

Stayed for 3 nights with family (5) in one of their apartments. The interiors were tastefully done and the apartment was large enough by European standards. The kitchenette was well-appointed, beds were comfy and bathroom was located away from the sleeping and living. Felt like you were coming home everytime we returned from our day trips. Breakgast was substantial amd... More

all around perfect for - accomodation (quiet, clean, spacious apartment rooms grouped around an interior loggia) - car parking (within the hotel's own courtyard at surcharge but justified for central location) - breakfast (definitely quite above Italian standard, completed with local, also homemade specialities) - service (extremly friendly and helpful) - location (right in the historical city of Florence, 3...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Just loved the place! Each room is a suite with two levels, kitchen and bathroom. Breakfast has so many choices and is amazing. Best breakfast in our 12 days trip was at this hotel. Staff is über friendly and gracious. We had to leave at 5 am to catch Bernina Express, the day we checked... More

Stayed with my family in a studio apartment. Very close to the train station but in a quiet side street (you go through a long driveway before the actual entrance which further enhances the quietness). Staff very friendly and answered all my email travel questions prior to the trip.

We stayed at this residence on our honeymoon for a few days. The service is outstanding and the room was nice, spacious and well air conditioned (one minor quibble: the bathroom could perhaps have been a little cleaner on arrival; we hasten to add it was not in a dreadful state, just was not pristine either). It is located within... More

A perfect Firenze touring base. Everything is within walking distance. Friendly, accommodating and intimate. Breakfast was yummy. The triple room was two-leveled and fun. Can recommend without hesitation.

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
