Residenza d'Epoca Via Santo Spirito 6
Ranked #48 of 326 Specialty Lodging in Florence
Reviewed July 7, 2013

My husband and I just finished our stay of three nights. Thought the hotel was terrific and it met all our needs. Loved the location, a block away from the Arno, Santo Spirito, and two blocks from the Ponte Vecchio. We really enjoyed staying on this side of the river too, as we found it quieter at night to sleep, and there were a wonderful selection of restaurants and wine bars to try within five mins walk. Alessandra was incredibly accommodating too, helping us reserve bookings for the museums of our interest as well as dinner reservations even before our arrival. Some people complained about the lack of air conditioning, but we found this to be a non issue in July. Just keep the windows open at night and feel the nice breeze...AFTER shutting off lights to avoid bugs coming in.

We will def. be back here next time in Florence and will recommend to our friends who are seeking less than 100 euro a night in an expensive city.

Our accommodations were great! Very, clean, spacious and a great, great location. Everyone was very helpful and the the coupon for breakfast was local and returned often. Do NOT miss this great place.

Room Tip: This was on the other side of the river but not a problem and close to many restaurants, a market, f...

Traveled with my two children, ages 10 and 14. We stayed in Room 7, which has a separate bedroom upstairs, accessed by a cute spiral staircase, and a fold-out couch downstairs. Great location; the hotel is just outside of the main bustle of the Ponte Vecchio area, but only a quick walk to it. NEVER any safety concerns, and I felt very comfortable walking to the hotel at any hour. Plenty of shops and restaurants in close proximity. The room was clean, comfortable, and VERY spacious. Free Wifi, but as others mentioned, a little spotty at times. Our room had paintings on the ceiling from the 1800's...the place is just loaded with historical charm. Absolutely gorgeous courtyard downstairs, with plants, seating areas, fish and a turtle. For longer stays, if you want to do stove top cooking or clothes washing, there are community rooms where there are a stove/oven and a washer/dryer. There is no a/c (a rare find in Florence...even the museums/shops didn't have it), but there are fans....it was 95 degrees (!) in Florence while we were there, but we did fine with just the fans. Breakfast (included) was at a cafe next door - LOVED it, fresh squeezed OJ, cappuccino, pastries or sandwich. The staff at the hotel are very accommodating, and go out of their way to assist when you have questions or need help. I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel, and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Room 7 with the loft bedroom is great for families!

I have absolutely made a right decision to stay in this apartment. The receptionist, Alexandra is very friendly and helpful, informative and welcoming to us. We felt safe to walk along via santo spirito and the building itself is securely locked by 3 doors before we entered to our room. The room was large with a small kitchen and all very clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable that we had good sleeps for the whole week. Wi-Fi was connected well in our room. Location is perfect. We took about 15 mins walk with suitcases from the S.M.N. station to the apartment. The accommodation is surrounded by good restaurants, shops and a supermarket. Breakfast coupons are provided and we took only 20 steps to the cafe shop on the next door every morning. If on Sunday, we took a few steps more to another cafe shop in which was also good for a coffee, freshly squeezed juice and a pastry in the morning. My husband and I enjoyed very much and we will definitely choose this again on our next visit in Florence. I would recommend these apartments to anyone.

This accommodation is great, its in a very secure building with 3 locked doors to enter before entering your own room door. The rooms are great, very large, nice and clean and great facilities such as a mini kitchen, tv, table, sofa bed etc.

The staff here are extremely friendly and very helpful. I would recommend these apartments/studio rooms to anyone who is looking for a great price in a central location in Florence.

The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, the rooms were large, well-kept, and well-appointed, and the location was absolutely perfect -- easy access to the center of town, but on the quieter south side of Arno, surrounded by great restaurants and shops. As someone mentioned, the Wi-Fi was spotty in the rooms (though I could always get a signal on the landing by elevator), but the comfortable, attractive rooms more than made up for any shortcomings. Couldn't have been happier with our stay!

April 2013 was my second time staying at this hotel because the first (October 2012) was such a good experience. The second visit was just as satisfying. Alessandra is absolutely wonderful, very helpful, and speaks perfect English (I live in Italy and speak Italian but my visiting family from the U.S. doesn't). The courtyard is gorgeous and my sister and brother-in-law had a fun morning there chatting with Luca, the caretaker.

As I said in my first review last fall, the location is perfect and the value is excellent for Florence. The rooms are positively giant compared to most of Italy, and they're clean and well-furnished. Between myself and visiting family over two visits, I've seen four rooms at this hotel, and all were worth every euro (three of them had kitchens, and one even had a laundry machine). The community kitchen/lounge areas are great, too.

Yes, you need four keys to get from the street to your room, but frankly that's fine with me and is part of the charm of staying in a gorgeous old mansion in Italy. Also, they've changed the location of the complementary breakfast/lunch since I was there last year, and the new place is even better, and much closer, just a couple of doors down. The food there was wonderful and the staff was very friendly.

The Wifi is free but doesn't work perfectly inside the rooms - but it's great in the communal areas, the beautiful courtyard, and the hallways (which have really comfortable sofas and chairs).

I've lived in Italy for two years and have been to Florence four times, and honestly I can say that the Residenza d'Epoca is well worth every euro. Highly recommended.
