The staff at this family owned hotel is pleasant and helpful. It's in a good location, walking distance to the major attractions. A few good restaurants also nearby. If you are dumb enough to drive in Florence like I was, do yourself a favor and let the hotel staff pull your car in for you. The gate is very narrow... More

My family and I had an exceptional experience at Residence La Contessina in Florence! This family owned and operated hotel feels more like an upscale bed and breakfast and gives you a sense of what it would be like to live in the city in your own apartment!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in La Contessina in Florence. A roomy apartment in a beautiful converted building. The staff were very friendly, attentive and obliging. On check in we were given a map and details of places to visit including bus numbers. Breakfast was a good dining experience. Very convenient for railway station and also sightseeing.

This hotel was great for what it was. We really enjoyed having that apartment/loft feel which was a nice change from the tiny hotel rooms we were experiencing everywhere else. The decor was nice too, it provided a nice ambiance for our final day in Italy. The beds were a little hard, but that is to be expected. One thing... More

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The location is very close to the train station and to centre of Florence. The rooms are clean and spacious and the only problem we had was with the WiFi. The owner was very helpful and tried to resolve it but it seems it was caused by a third party.

Residence La Contessina is a suite / apartment style hotel (with parking if you need it) that you wouldn't expect to find in the center of Florence. The rooms, while not extravagant, are clean and spacious with kitchenette, living area and loft sleeping area. Breakfast was quite nice. The only drawback is the internet availability is very inconsistent. The hotel... More

The room is comfortable and roomy. In the type of room we stayed, we shared door some common areas with other guests, but with different travel schedules, we rarely see them. Occasionally, at night, we can hear other guests coming in or noise from them using the shower, but it didn't bother us much! Staff is friendly and helpful! We... More

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighborhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind stalls with an array of products in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building. Visitors are bound to fall in love with this area and in particular, with its variety of food, especially those focusing on Florentine dishes as well as international selections. Nobody leaves San Lorenzo without a shopping bag in hand or with an empty stomach.
