“Convenient location, helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Perfect location! We could easily walk to all the museums, restaurants, and other attractions. Our room was clean, spacious, with a large walk-in closet. Our only disappointment was the lack of good lighting for reading. All the staff were very warm and extra helpful. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast served at a large table in the dining room overlooking the plaza.

Situated in the heart of Florence this delightful hotel is a home away from home. Right next to the Gucci Palace in the Piazza della Signoria, walk out the door to beautiful statues, including David and Neptune Fountain, a very short walk to the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and all major attractions. Beautifully furnished with antiques and well equipped this delightful 14 th century building is the pride and joy of the delightful young couple who own and run it. The young energetic staff go out of their way to help you and will book tours, give you advice and lots of help in planning your holiday if you need it. Breakfast is at a large table where all the guests sit together and interact. I stayed there with friends in 2011 and when returning to Florence alone this year didn't even consider looking for other accommodation.

Just an outstanding B&B in the heart of Florence. Rooms were fabulous, tastefully decorated and very spacious (we stayed in the Michelangelo Room - stunning). The staff was warm and very helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and by far one of the best B&B breakfasts we had in our European trip this summer. And the location cannot be beat. I cannot say enough good things about it and I highly recommend it for any romantic occasion.

Residenza d"Epoca in Piazza della Signoria was wonderful. The staff were warm and friendly, most helpful in arranging entrance tickets, taxi, reservations and advice about where to eat. Our room was spacious and the bathroom was clean; the bed was very comfortable, one of the best ever in a hotel or B&B. We chose a less expensive room without a view and it was worth every euro. In addition to comfort and an excellent staff, its location is a key feature. It is on the corner of the Piazza della Signoria, which is close to everything! The Uffizi is just across the Piazza, the Duomo is about 5 minutes walk and the train station about 10 minutes. Ponte Vecchio and the Arno river is just a few minutes walk, then you are across the river to visit the Boboli garden.

The entire staff was friendly and helpful and the location was central to everything we wanted to do. Also a good breakfast. Although on the lively Piazza del Signorina, the double windows provided for a quiet sleep. I highly recommend!

Located right off of Piazza de La Signoria, this lovely B & B is in a great location to explore Florence - the sights, restaurants & shops. We stayed in the Bruneschelli room which is beautifully decorated and large enough for the three of us. There was an event going on in the piazza that affected my sleep but my husband and adult daughter slept through the noise.

The staff was very helpful and responsive to our last minute request for directions on where to park our car. We were able to park at a garage just a couple of blocks away and walk to the B & B. Also, the staff carried our heavy luggage to and from our rooms which we appreciated. The gorgeous dining room overlooks the piazza and is decorated with beautiful paintings and furniture. The breakfast was prepared to order for each party when they sat down to breakfast and it was plentiful.

While WiFi is available, it was very faint in our room. If we needed to get on the internet, we sat comfortably in the lobby and chatted with the staff. It was a very minor inconvenience since we weren't in Florence to surf the Net!

I'd highly recommend staying at Residenza d"Epoca in Piazza della Signoria. My husband, sister and I traveled together to Florence and stayed in the Bruneschelli and Gallileo rooms. Both were beautiful with lovely baths. Although we overlooked the Piazza, the double windows and shutters kept the rooms plenty quiet overnight. We were most impressed with how at home we felt here, the quality of the breakfast and the overall experience. I'd recommend, with out reservation, that you stay here! Loved it!
