Location is excellent... right in the heart of the city. The Host is a very nice and helpful gentleman. The room was a bit spartan, but nice and clean. The bathroom was very basic, but also clean. However... the ground floor of the building, which includes a substantial vestibule and elevator waiting area absolutely reeks of methane gas, as in, the stench of human you know what. This made the unavoidable task of entering and leaving our residence an absolutely awful experience; to the point, that we planned our last days around avoiding the odor by making sure we only entered and exited the residence one time each day. Of course, this pretty much eliminated the value of staying in the heart of the city. I also want to mention that we requested ice and were told they don't provide it and there is no place nearby to get any. I find this odd and unacceptable in a supposedly 3 star property. As a final positive note, I want to mention that the hotel has a breakfast agreement with the bakery next door, Il Forno S.r.l. I highly recommend you have breakfast there, regardless of whether you stay at Residenza Della Signoria. It is a wonderful little bakery/cafe with amazing pastries and cappuccino.

The location can't be beat - right in the center of Florence and the Duomo, the Piazza della Signoria and the Piazza della Repubblica. The rooms are very clean, roomy and well appointed and maintained. Stephano was a charming host and provided good advice. This was our second time in Florence so we were less concerned with the gallieries, etc, and more interested in just soaking up the Italian way of life. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Florence.

We stayed here for 9 days in Sept/Oct. Stefano was a wonderful host with great suggestions on what to see/where to eat (we very much enjoyed the conversations), and his staff just as helpful. The location was absolutely Perfect being a few minutes from the Duomo, Piazza de Repubblica, Palazzo Vecchio,and almost across the street from Orsanmichele Church. Great restaurants, bakeries, gelato shops, and a small grocery are within steps from Residenza della Signoria!

This B&B was awesome. It was our third hotel in Florence after returning from Verona. The location was very good, close to everything. You can see the duomo from the window. Stefano was very accommodating and allowed us to choose any room from three different sizes. I think we were the only ones there on our first night. The cold water dispenser in the common room was very handy. The cafe next door served nice breakfast, great gelato across the street and pizza about half a block away. I felt very safe on the third floor and security was good. Bed was comfortable and very large (king size). AC was fantastic. It was very clean and nicely appointed. We would definitely look at using this B&B again.

We’ve just returned from a three night visit. We first stayed here in 2010 and it was lovely to return. We even had the same room with a wonderful view of the duomo which was fantastic! The room was spacious, with beautiful furniture and it was spotlessly clean. The air conditioned and window shutters meant it was lovely and cool inside the room. Stefano was very helpful and runs a lovely establishment. He gave us restaurant recommendations, taxi numbers and emailed local hairdressers in advance of our visit as we had to attend a wedding. The little kitchen has cool water available, a fridge and a coffee machine -60 cent for a coffee. The location is just super-only minutes from the main sights yet our room was wonderfully quiet. We would definitely stay here again when in Florence and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
