“Good location; value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Stayed with my family in a studio apartment. Very close to the train station but in a quiet side street (you go through a long driveway before the actual entrance which further enhances the quietness). Staff very friendly and answered all my email travel questions prior to the trip.

We stayed at this residence on our honeymoon for a few days. The service is outstanding and the room was nice, spacious and well air conditioned (one minor quibble: the bathroom could perhaps have been a little cleaner on arrival; we hasten to add it was not in a dreadful state, just was not pristine either). It is located within walking distance of all of Florence's most famous landmarks and tourist spots. The staff are really helpful and the breakfast every morning was very nice. We would not hesitate to stay there again, or to recommend it to other travellers.

A perfect Firenze touring base. Everything is within walking distance. Friendly, accommodating and intimate. Breakfast was yummy. The triple room was two-leveled and fun. Can recommend without hesitation.

Stayed for three days and loved it. The warmth of this family owned business was the standout; the cooked and continental breakfasts didn't hurt either. So maybe not the most luxurious but definitely the most cozy, well kept hotel I stayed in during my stay. Good value for money and bang in the middle of everything. Will go back.

Walking distance from the Santa Maria novella train station, this hotel is in a great location. Close to all the sights and good restaurants around you. There is a supermarket close by if you want to cook, there is an extra charge of 25euro if you use the kitchen facility in your apartment. Very clean and spacious apartment. The family running the place are very helpful and served breakfast early for us on the day we had to do a day trip.

For those wanting a great place to relax and unwind after a day shopping and sightseeing in beautiful Florence, this is the place! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even helped park my big American SUV in their tiny parking area! Becauae I'm stationed in Italy for a few more years, the wife and I will be sure to visit again and we'll make this hotel our home again while in town. For those wanting pet sitting service, I highly recommend www.florencepetsitting.com. Maryanne and Alex took care of our two dogs like they were family, and for a really great price!

Just came back from a three night stay at Residence La Contessina. and we had a fantastic time. The location is great; just a few minutes walk from the train station and easy walking distance to all the major attractions of Florence. This family run hotel gave us very courteous service and they were extremely hospitable. Breakfast was one of the best we have had; besides the cereals and bread, there was plenty of fresh fruit, lots of home baked cakes, biscuits, pastries and not to mention pizzas and bruschettas! We really were spoilt for choice and being vegetarians, really appreciated what they did for us. Our room was an apartment with cooking facilites which we didn't use. I can't fault anything about the service and would recommend this place highly.
