Friendly staff, 5 Minutes from train station and bus station, central located, 5 minutes from the dome. Up-graded to superior room, beautiful room, comfy bed. Breakfast was lovely at the deli opposite the road.

Location and customer service were exceptional! Room was very spacious and clean. Greta and Marta were amazing in giving us tips and taking care of our booking, tours, etc. Breakfast was at a nearby cafe and was excellent!

We could reach our B&B within 15 minutes leaving the train station, but turned the wrong way. When we eventually found La Residenza we were sweaty and tired. Not in any mood for nonsense. The rooms are on the first floor, but had a VERY SMALL elevator that could only fit one piece of luggage. But then we met RAFFAELLA!!... More

Great location near Railway - 2 minutes away - on a very busy street but very quiet accommodation. Very comfortable, air conditioning, modern bath, TV, WiFi. Very friendly staff, nothing a problem. Not far to the major attractions - 10 minutes walk at most - restaurants even closer - convenient to Laundromat also. A very tiny lift - 2 persons... More

I liked the location. Super close to the train station and foodies paradise - Mercato Centrale and a lively street at night. Although it might be noisy outside, it's all nice and quiet inside the room which made for a good night's rest. Staff was very nice, helpful and informative. Room was nice and clean. Bathroom was clean and modern.... More

The location of this B&B is fantastic - easily walkable to all sorts of sights in Florence. The rooms are modern, clean, and the staff very helpful. Our room was on the front of the building, but noise from the street was not an issue, and the temperature controls were just fine. The bed was comfortable. Wifi was also available.... More

We probably read all the reviews for this B&B, and thought we knew exactly what we would get: a tiny room, a tiny bathroom, a great location (it is located in an old building, so...).

Three minutes from the train station and less than fifteen minutes from all the historic museums. Comfortable, clean and functional. Nice continental breakfast is included in a cafe a block away. No elevator though, makes dragging you 20kg suitcase up two flights an inconvenience.
