“Affordable luxury in the center of Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Tucked in between the Duomo and Piazza SS Annunziata is Residence Hilda. Just a few apartments in a renovated building. Classic and modern, comfortable and easy. Our apartment had a kitchen, living area, big bathroom, and bedroom. Quiet street and easy walk to everything. Beautiful coffee shop next door to the left. We really felt like we lived there, instead of a hotel room as a visitor. Great Front desk staff helped us with everything from where to park, to restaurants (all good), to general getting around. Elevator was great too for getting our gear in and out. On my "go back" list. Loved this place. !!!!!

Great suite. The king bed was very nice. We were there 5 days and enjoyed the kitchen for breakfast and one or two dinners, enjoying lunches and other dinners at great restaurants. We had some items to send home before we left and the ladies at reception took them, packaged them and sent them for us. It was the most expensive place we stayed on our Italian trip, but the location was probably worth it.

We spent three nights at the Residence Hilda in October and enjoyed our stay. Reception was friendly and efficient, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable, the kitchen had all the utensils we needed (including toaster) and there are a number of mini-markets nearby to do a shop for food etc. The central location meant that all the points of interest were easily reached on foot.
We would certainly return to the Hilda.

We had a great stay at the Residence Hilda. The room was spotlessly clean and king bed was comfortable. It did have a fully stocked kitchen but because we only stayed one night we didn't actually use it, so unfortunately I can't comment on the kitchen much other than it was also clean and we'll organized. The air conditioner in the room only went down to a certain temperature and wasn't up to my husbands usual liking of sub arctic but we also experienced the same heating/cooling system at our previous hotel in venice. The staff was very friendly and helpful with everything we asked and the hotel is in an excellent location in relation to almost all sights in florence. The duomo is 3-4 minute walk, and the galleria de academia (where the statue of David is displayed) is max 10 minutes. Great place overall.

We spent one week in Hilda and we would not leave the house because we felt like beeing at home. All ladies at the reception have been extremly friendly, as well were the service-ladies.
Our large Suite was as clean as possible, a daily Service very discreetly.
If we'll ever return to Florence, we will return to Hilda. There's no alternative, it's "simply the best"

Thanks again and Kind regards
Tanja & Lars from Düsseldorf, Germany

Room Tip: We would prefer room nr. 32

We loved the hotel, location, rooms and staff were superb! I would highly recommend! The staff was helpful in recommending restaurants and providing directions, nothing bad to say! Florence is a beautiful city, must stop when in Italy.
