An excellent B&B next to Florence railway station. Its at walk-able distance from all the places of interest. The lady at the reception was very helpful and gave us suggestion for restaurants and the places to visit. The room was very big and very comfortable. Highly recommended!

The location was excellent, it's just a few meters walk from the main railway station. Ambiance of the room was perfect, every traveler will really feel at home. And the best part was the hospitality and friendliness of each staff working in the hotel, they are all ready to help you get around with detailed instructions before checking in. Will definitely refer to friends who wish to travel to Florence.

This B&B is so close to the train station that I passed by since I couldn't believe so. Before arrival, I received an email from La Residenza to guide me the way, but I still lost since their explanation confused my internal compass. Maybe my English is not good enough.
Anyway, Florence is small and the B&B is in the center. The two lady staffs I met both very friendly and helpful. Since I arrived on Chinese New Eve, I asked for good restaurants for dinner and their suggestion is super. The only thing I did not like is the smell for the towels which I believe were sanitized by disinfectant. Well, the same issue occurs in another B&B I stayed in Napoli, so I assume this is common practice for Italian B&Bs. All in all, La Residence is a good choice for Florence.

We are very pleased with this hotel. The building has a very old school lift but the room is clean n super spacious. Thumbs up! This is the only hotel we stayed in Italy that provides welcome drinks. There is a small supermarket at the ground level for us to buy water & drinks, something very important to us.

Wonderful place to stay!!! Warm reception with clear explanation of Florence map. They provided variety of fruits, croissant, bottle water and juice for FREE!!!! Also, neat and traditional Italian breakfast. We booked 2+1 room with a beautiful name,Sky, and the sofa bed is comfortable. We all had a great sleep. The receptionist was super helpful and nice. We all love this hotel. We will revisit it for sure.

We stayed 2 nights here and it was awesome. Huge room, enough space if you come just for shopping, very clean and well-maintained!The lady at the reception was super friendly and very helpful. Breakfast place is just about 50m down the road in a small corner cafe. The residence is very close to Santa Maria Novella train station. If you have big bags, this is perfect location, practically next to the station. The only thing about this residence is, its quite easy to miss. It is located just after a bus-stop and before the Chinese restaurant. You'll find it, not that difficult.
I would definitely recommend this place and we will definitely come back again!
