“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Booked this b&b after reading other reviews on trip advisor, glad I did as it is a little gem. Nestled right in the heart of Florence 30 seconds from the old bridge it is a great location. E-mailed them to let them know what time we were arriving and they were there waiting. Nice complementary tea and water in the room. Very cheap mini bar and had some great advice on where to visit and where to have dinner. The only thing that could have been improved is a bit quieter air conditioning unit, I sleep like a log but the boyfriend woke in the night, don't let this put you off, its a fantastic little place. Excellent value compared to other places in Florence.

Basic room, refurbished and clean. Definitely a value-for-money option; we paid 54euro/night. Perfect location -next to Ponte Vechio. Very friendly and happy-to-help owner, Lorenzo. The room has all you need, even an ipod docking station.

The entrance to the hotel (5-room hotel is on one floor, in an old building block) was terrifying; old and dirty. When you get to the 'hotel' floor -providing you have basic expectations- it is a great choice.
Noise from the busy street may interfere with light (and maybe heavy) sleepers.

I would never recommend this to older people such as my parents or those with children. Suitable for young travelers.

First of all location is perfect. A couple steps away from old bridge, and all popular places in Firenze. The rooms are quite big, comfortable and clean. House keeping is vey good. Mini bar prices are vey cheap. But most important, owners, Lorenzo and Gio are very helpful and kind. They helped a lot during booking and staying Firenze. Also they made an extra discount on check out.

So, If I go Firenze again I will stay Residenza Castelli. Thats for sure.

Many thanks to Lorenzo and Gio.

On the plus side....Steps from Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Museum, the SMN rail station, and other popular landmarks. Lorenzo and Gio, were very friendly and helpful. If we needed anything booked, I'm sure they would have helped. We felt that our belongs were safe. Room was big and clean. Clean towels everyday.
On the minus side.... No telephone in room, a bit noisy early in the morning with the street cleaners (light sleepers should go elsewhere), a light breakfast would have been nice. Showerhead didn't work, just the handheld faucet worked just fine.

This hotel is excelent.
The location is perfect, in the centre of everything, close to every attraction. A few steps from Ponte Vecchio.
The two friends who own the business are very very helpful and friendly, and would do everything to help you.
I deffinitely recommend it!
