We enjoyed our 4 night stay very much. The indivdual rooms are european sized, with nice sized bathrooms. Our room was air conditioned and comforatable. The Florentine decor and canopy bed were delightful. All rooms are located inside a suite so, once you pass through the inner suite door there is a sense of entering a welcome private domain. Our staff was very gracious and helpful with local restaurant suggestions and assistance. The breakfast is continental but perfect for adventurers. Coffee, the honor bar and a caraffe of vinsanto in the eventing is a nice touch.
The Residenza is located about a block and a half from Via San Gallo, the main street through the center of Florence that runs past main piazzas, the Duomo and the Ponte Vechio. It is about 3/4 mile to the town center. The Academia is very close, as are good restarants, banks and pharmacies.
As others notes, the Residenza is located in a quiet neighborhood and on the second floor behind a courtyard next to the Swedish Consulate. There was some minor construction while we were there that affected "curb appeal" but was not noisy or dusty in any way. We walked everywhere all over Florence and the Residenza was our base of operations and home away from home.
