I stayed at the Residenza Giotto for four nights in May. I found the owners Silvia and Georgio to be very pleasant and helpful. The location was perfect, right next to the Duomo. I had an excellent view from my room as promised.
The only thing to note (not necessarily a compliant) is that it is not quite the same as an hotel. As the name suggests, this is a residence rather than a hotel. They operate on the top floor of a building in which locals live. They do have a older style lift but sometimes i found the stairs quicker and if someone forgets to shut and lock the door, you can get the lift to move. (if you are traveling with someone who has foot and/or knee issues you may want to think about what happens if the lift stops working.
The owners work a normal 9-5 shift and so you have to bring your keys everywhere with you and let yourself into the building, the residence and your hotel room if they have left by the time you return.
I like my room, it was very spacious and comfortable. The value for money on the room (considering the location) was excellent! I did have a bit of an issue with the toilet in my room but the owners were very attentive in getting it fixed as quickly as possible.
It's nice place to stay, just a little different from being in a hotel.
