We are a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and stayed in 1865 Residenza d'epoca for 6 nights over Christmas. Our conclusion? It was a privilege to have been guests of this property.
Whilst the rooms were comfortable, elegant (especially the Henry James room) and very clean, the key to this very highly regarded property are the hosts, Michel and Cinza. They were very warm, personable and informative and really made our stay special. The fact that they have coffee (espresso machine) and tea plus some snacks available all day at the open dining area was highly appreciated. The property itself is charming, with an elevator that harks back to another more glamorous era (but working very efficiently).
Location-wise, the property is within walking distance of major attractions, including the Uffizi Gallery, Pitti Palace and the Duomo. Good restaurants a short walk away (recommended by the hosts). Rooms in the property are very quiet but as it is in a largely residential area (with a police station down the road), we felt very safe at all times. We would highly recommend this gem to any traveller to Florence
