This is a hidden little gem located right in the heart of activity in Firenze. There's only five rooms, and they're located on one floor of a mixed use office and apartment building about fifty yards from the River Arno and the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. You access it by walking through a little piazza shared by a church and some other buildings. Architecture throughout the city is awesome.
Our room faced the main street, and we were about five floors up. Looking down, you see all the foot traffic going by, and the setting could not be more ideal to access everything in the Center by walking. We were right next door to the Uffizi Gallery. Rooms are pretty basic, but the beds are comfortable, the place is kept clean, and you can see that a lot of effort has been put into improving it and keeping up. Bathrooms are small but modernized.
The Residenza is run by two very nice young men, Lorenzo and Joe (sp?). Lorenzo was our primary contact and he went out of his way to be helpful in every aspect. Nice guy with an excellent command of English.
We would definitely book this place again.
