A quick walk away from the duomo in Florence you can find space and comfort at Residence La Contessina. The rooms are all apartments and give families space to spread out and relax after enjoying the busy sights of Florence. We were initially in an apartment and loved the space with its kitchen and multiple levels, but needed something on... More

As a family of four tough to find rooms in Italy that can accomodate all of us in one room. This hotel is spacious as their rooms are apartment styles. Our room was two floors with a queen size bed on the loft and a pull out sofa on the main level Can't say they were the most comfortable beds... More

Residence la Contessina was a fairly short walk from the train station, the streets a little uneven on the way but it was not difficult. Our room was perfect for my wife and I and our adult children as it had a convenient upstairs and downstairs and was well air conditioned. The position was fantastic, a short walk to all... More

The hotel is placed in a very good location with everything within reach. We booked a family room with two beds, they even provided with an extra crib bed for the baby. It had a kitchen too, but nowhere was it mentioned that we had to pay 'extra' to use it! So be mindful.. The wifi is average, and so... More

This hotel is nothing special. The room is kind of dated. The beds are just ok. Very central area and like 7 minutes to the main train station. Cost around 90 Euros so I guess you get what you pay for at this point. If I never came back to this hotel I would not be upset. Not a place... More

We had a wonderful 4 night stay here. It was easy to find from the train station just a couple blocks away. It's in a courtyard in the middle of a pedestrian street. Look for the flags on the south side of the street. The room was quite large by Italy standards and the staff polite and helpful. We were... More

This is a great family-owned hotel in the perfect location to explore Florence! The staff was very helpful and available. We really enjoyed our three nights and felt very "at home". This is not your high-rise, mass marketed hotel experience and that was perfect for vacation in the city. Clean. Friendly and Safe.

離Firenze S.M.N.車站很近,走路約五分鐘 ,雖然位於鬧區,卻自成一格,非常安靜。旅舍內有精緻又平易近人尺度的可愛庭院。 房間以復古溫潤的材質與色調設計,讓人放鬆又倍感溫馨。房內設施都維持得非常好,簡易廚房、圓餐桌、複層式格局,甚至連長期旅客換洗晾衣服需求都設想到了;早餐也很用心,新鮮的水果、咖啡豆、品質優良的起司與火腿;都可以感受到經營者的用心。 最重要的是,旅舍的成員都非常親切;對外籍旅客真是有賓至如歸的感受;極力推薦給自助旅行的家庭! It's close to the Firenze S.M.N. station,about five minutes on foot, although in the downtown area, it's very quiet. Inside the hotel is a delicate and lovely yard. There are warm materials and color design in the room. Travelers can relax and feel welcome. In-room facilities are very well maintained, simple kitchen, a round dining... More
