Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 4, 2012

From beginning to end Residenza Giotto was Perfect!! The kindness & helpfulness of Sylvia & Giorgio with everything from restaurant suggestions to making our museum reservations for us in advance to returning after hours to welcome us was amazing. The room was terrific! Spacious enough and even the shower was great! And they have an elevator!! The view of the Duomo from the terrace was spectacular. And did I mention we were right next door to Gucci?! If you're looking for the perfect homebase in Florence for the best price with great hosts and knockout location definitely stop searching and go straight to Residenza Giotto!!

We absolutely loved out stay at this property. Silvia was more than helpful in arranging anything we needed. She got our reservations to the ufizzi and the David. She arranged for some great restaurants too. ( 4 Leonne and the pear pasta appetizer. WOW )

This hotel is one of the best small scale properties in Europe. I would defiantly stay they again.

And did I mention the VIEWS. We had room # 3 and is was FANTASTIC. If you want a Hyatt like hotel then go stay at a Hyatt or Marriott. If you want a small scale, Europe feeling hotel, this is the place for you.

Giorgio and Silvia were the best. They were so helpful in recommending places to see and places not to see. Also, they were great on food recommendations that would not be a tourist trap. I could spend all night on the back terrace and stare at the Duomo. The location was awesome and a very easy and short walk from the train station. If I ever come back to Florence, this is where I would stay. Thank you Georgio and Silvia

The main entrance (from Via Roma) takes you to an antiquated lift and then on up the 4 floors to Residenza Giotto. We were lucky enough to have a large room (Room 6) overlooking the Duomo and Giotto's Campanile. Beware the 7am wake up call from the bells!

The bedroom was large and very clean with a small flat screen TV (cable channels), air con (quiet and worked very well) and fridge. A nice touch is they provide four free bottles of mineral water. Oldish furniture, but perfectly in keeping with the building. Comfortable bed. The en-suite shower room was small but clean with a powerful shower.

There’s a small kitchen/breakfast room leading out to a terrace. Breakfast here in the sunshine with the view of the Duomo each morning was fantastic. Giorgio was always on hand to help prepare our breakfast. Cereals, breads, croissants, fruit juices and tea/coffee on offer.

Both Giorgio and Silvia could not have been more pleasant and helpful, making us feel very welcome. They speak excellent English and eagerly assisted us with our various requests. Giorgio gave us some great insights into the history of Florence and the Duomo - you won’t need another guide!

The price for the room was very reasonable, especially considering the central location (you really are in the middle of everything!), and I would not hesitate to recommend the Residenza Giotto.

Room Tip: Room 6 is large (3 beds) with a view of the Duomo. Also quieter as not overlooking any main streets.

We arrived by train and took the short walk to Residenza Giotto with our dusty rucksacks. Those enormous doors closed behind us and there was utter peace - you would never know that throngs of tourists were passing in their thousands outside. The little lift was great - although only one of us could go up and down with our bags at a time. We were met by Giorgio who explained where everything was, gave us a map and made us feel completely welcome. He marked out some restaurants that were especially suitable for vegetarians (although really not something one needs to worry about when in Italy). Our room was spacious with the most amazing view of Giotto's Tower. I didn't want to leave the terrace after breakfast - what a treat. Altogether a fantastic B&B in a marvellous location. We would definitely stay again when we make it back to Florence.

Wow! What more can you ask for? Lovely, spacious, comfortable rooms, perfect hosts and an amazing view of Florence!! Giorgio and Silvia were delightful hosts for our recent stay in Florence! They gave us a helpful map with recommendations for sights and restaurants while we were there. They answered our questions and even came in after hours to welcome us when we arrived late!!

Thank you so much for a wonderful visit! We can't wait until we return!

Giorgio and Silvia were extremely helpful throughout the booking phase and our stay at Residenza Giotto. Their assistance in making arrangements and answering our questions made our first visit to Florence really pleasant. The accommodation was perfect, clean, comfortable and in an unbeatable location for sightseeing and shopping in Florence. We even had a view of the Duomo from our room and the patio adjacent to the dining room.
