“A family affair”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

This small family-run hotel near the Duomo is the perfect blend of comfort and economy. The family couldn't be more helpful, and the accommodations are clean and comfortable. They all speak excellent English, which is a plus. We were lucky enough to get the only room with a balcony (46), but all the rooms seem very nice. There is also a courtyard to sit in when the weather is good. The neighborhood has convenient groceries and restaurants. This is a great find, and we will stay here again the next time we are in Florence.

We booked three nights at the Residenza Il Villino based on Tripadvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed. Our room was spacious, traditionally decorated and furnished and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was simple and plentiful - drinks quickly replenished and croissants freshly baked. Sergio, Elizabeth and Lorenzo were very welcoming and did everything possible to make our stay pleasurable. Sergio made some excellent recommendations for dinner at local, inexpensive restaurants and even booked tables for us.
Il Villino is within easy walking distance of all major sights in Florence - the only time we needed a taxi was from and to the railway station with our heavy bags.

Upon the recommendation of the Owner of Palazzo Masi in Seina, we booked 4 days at Residenza Il Villino this year and had a great stay. The family were great hosts with a lovely hotel with very clean rooms. The breakfast was excellent and the garden provided for a nice place to relax in the evenings. The bed was comfortable, room quite and had a nice view of the Duomo. The owners recommended great restaruants as well.

We recently spent 3 nights at Il Villino during our first visit to Florence, and we couldn't have picked a better B&B. Sergio, Elizabeth, and Lorenzo are warm and helpful, going out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and we especially enjoyed our afternoon wine on the terrace. I can't think of even one tiny negative about this little slice of heaven. It's in walking distance to the Duomo and major museums. In fact, we walked everywhere the entire time we were in Florence, always happy that we had this B&B to come home to.

This was my second time staying at Residenza Il Villino (first time was in 2007) and it was a very nice return. Sergio, Elisabetta and Lorenzo are fantastic hosts and were so good to us. The hotel itself is very charming with a lovely courtyard area. My room had a view of the duomo while my parents room had a lovely little balcony. The location is very good, walking distance to many sights while still be in a quiet area. There is also free Wi fi which was a nice bonus. Sergio and Lorenzo were very helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations.

Two things about this hotel, the hotel itself and the owners. Like some of the other reviews say, when you first pull up to your hotel, (and make sure to have the address or your taxi may not be able to find it), it looks pretty nondescript. Once you go thru the front door, you will feel like you are walking into authentic Italy. You will be greeted by Sergio when you arrive. He will show you the courtyard where breakfast is served every morning. Don't be afraid to ask him to make you a capuccino, he makes the best! The breakfasts were wonderful and eating them outside in the courtyard was an amazing way to start the day. The rooms were some of the largest we stayed at in Italy. Ours was upstairs and had a balcony with table and chairs. The minibar in the room was quite reasonable, so we drank Prosecco out on our balcony. I would recommend this hotel to all. It was clean, quiet, reasonably priced, Excellent service and a convenient location. They also had free wifi and a computer for guests to use in the lobby. As it is a small hotel, you will much more feel like you are staying in an old italian villa. We went with another couple and had a very relaxing time here. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Thank you Sergio, you were the best!!!!
