“Great place to stay”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

We recently stayed here with two other couples and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were clean and spacious and worked very well for us. We took full advantage of the kitchen and dining area which made it very relaxing to come back to after a long day of site seeing. There is a great grocery store nearby so we were able to stock up. We were welcomed on arrival and Leonardo was very helpful with providing information for our days in Florence. He even went so far as to get our reservations for the museums. It was an easy walk to the historical center but there is also a bus quite close by if needed. The only issue we had was the parking. Although we did get a parking pass there is no private parking available so you take your chance finding a place nearby. Overall, everything was beyond our expectations and I would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: The two rooms towards the front had more traffic noise but all were very nice.

My friend and I spent in Residenza Oltrarno wonderful 6 days. It is a quite place with romantic atmosphere. Rooms are spacious, light and beautifully decorated. The house is away from crowded with tourist central streets but at the same time is in the walking distance from many places of interest (20-30 min). Rooms were always clean; hosts were always friendly and helpful. We would like to recommend this place to everyone.

Thank you Stefano and Leonardo for our enjoyable stay in Florence!

First of all, Stefano & Leonardo are excellent! Very kind, very helpful, and very reasonable.

It was clean and spacious.

The location is decent. It was about a 10-30 minute walk to anything we wanted to see.

If/when we go back to Florence, we'll definitely be staying here.

My husband and I traveled through Italy for our honeymoon for 4 weeks. We stayed in different bed & breakfasts throughout the country and this was the best of all! It is a very spacious appartment, with big rooms, decorated with charming italian artistic style. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. Everything is always very clean, and at the same time everything is so relaxed that we felt for a few days as if the place was our own. It is about 20 mins walking distance from the center of the city, and also very well connected to move around in buses. There is a supermarket half a block away and a bancomat next door, which is very practical. There are also several restaurants closeby, and Steffano and Leonardo even give you recommendations of several restaurants with their exact locations on a map. We enjoyed our stay in Firenze and in this guest house very much, and totally recommend it!

We loved staying at this apartment. I arranged for my parents, brother and aunt to stay 2 weeks at Residenza Oltrarno. My fiance and I joined them for 6 days. There was plenty of room for 6 adults. The apartment was clean with plenty of towels and linens. It had old school, Italian charm, combined with some modern conveniences. Stefano and Leonardo were so pleasant and professional and always available to answer questions about the apartment and fix anything. One of the best parts of this apartment was that it was in a little neighborhood, near a grocery store, away from the tourists; but at the same time, just a short walk to all of the main attractions and the train station. Also, there are a couple great restaurants nearby. We hope to visit again in the future and will always plan to stay at Residenza Oltrarno. I would recommend the apartment to anyone. Big thank you to Stefano and Leonardo!

Where to stay in Florence? I think the only answer is Residenza Oltrarno "Guest House":))
The hotel's owner was very very kind and concerned. Rooms were always clean and hotel decoration was so elegant. Breakfast was perfect! Location is great (you can walk to city centre just 15 minutes or you can get in bus at the bus stop where on the hotel's gate).
Eventually we really appreciated the hotel! And also recomend to everyone. Thanks for everything and your hospitality Stefano and Leonardo :) Nice to meet you!
