The owners of La Contessina were, in short, angels for us. My son and I left a horrendous place two doors down (a "guesthouse" which was a prison-like hostel). had a 10 a.m. appointment at the Academia, and had nothing else booked. We walked into the hotel and asked if we could pay the hotel to simply hold our luggage. Instead, the owners personally saw to it that we received a good rate and gave us a top-of-the-line apartment for four nights. They even rearranged furniture to accommodate us while a large group came in two days later. Their personal touch, genuine care, and hope that we leave with a good impression of Florence warmed our hearts and had us hugging and laughing as we left. These folks are marvelous.
