This is a charming hotel which is staffed by people who really try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. It is well located although finding it by car is quite tricky. The reception staff do all possible to give directions. In particular Sara was very professional and helpful. Our room was on 2 levels and very large. Breakfast was good.The hotel welcomed our 2 dogs. It is reasonably priced for Florence. Parking is difficult in the city so although 30 euros per night is expensive it is better to pay it than try to park elsewhere.

Gentile Ospite,
grazie per averci dedicato il suo tempo. Cerchiamo sempre di far sentire i nostri ospiti al meglio possibile e le sue parole ci entusiasmano. Accogliamo con gioia i nostri amici quattro zampe, infatti il Residence La Contessina ha la sua piccola mascotte "Achille", sempre pronto ad accogliere tutti i suoi amici pelosi. Riguardo al parcheggio è vero, a Firenze è un pò difficoltoso parcheggiare, soprattutto nel centro, però la tariffa dei parcheggi fuori è circa di Euro 1,50 all'ora, quindi forse si risparmia un pò a metterla da noi. Nell'attesa di averla nuovamente come nostra ospite ( naturalmente usufruendo di uno sconto sul parcheggio per il " Welcome back").
Cordiali saluti.

This is an excellent place to stay if you are visiting Florence. It is 5 mins approx walking distance to train station and in walking distance to the Duomo . Breakfast excellent in nice surroundings. The staff are very professional and cannot do enough for you, very helpful. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Florence. Nice and quiet. Wish all hotels were like this.

A very good hotel at reasonable price. You receive a big apartment and a service not worse than in a hotel. Kitchen and all necessary equipment is in place, dishes, forks, spoons, cups, glasses, various knives, etc. You pay for the kitchen only of you use a cooker. Amazing is that all apartmets are 2-leveled, with very high ceilings. Location is in the historical centre, in the walking street, 10-15 minutes walk from Piazza del Duomo, near Central Railway station.

Gentile Cliente,
la ringraziamo per le sue parole. Siamo contenti che ha apprezzato la nostra struttura e i nostri servizi, in particolare la cucina. Un ospite può decidere di utilizzarla a un costo di Euro 25,00 a fine soggiorno per la pulizia d'igenizzazione. Nella speranza di rivederla presto da noi.
Cordiali saluti.

An excellent accommodation in Florence. Via Faenza is 5 minutes away from rail and bus stations and at 10 minutes walking distance from the Duomo, but also an oasis of silence. The apartment was spacious and perfectly clean with comfortable beds and modern equipment. There’s really no need to use the kitchen because there are many restaurants in the neighbourhood. The owners and staff of La Contessina were very friendly and helpful in any possible way. We enjoyed our stay. Much to be recommended.

No complaints for what we paid, approximately 100 euros for 1 night . Strange that full price is listed @ 600 euros. Not worth that sort of tarrif. Charged extra if u use the kitchen area , which seems odd .would use the hotel again .

This was the best accommodation we have ever enjoyed in Florence. Via Faenza is close to the rail and bus stations, and yet surprisingly quiet. Our apartment was spacious and perfectly clean. We could have used the kitchen but chose not to do so, as in this locality there are many restaurants, and joining other people for meals is one of the pleasures of a holiday. The owners and staff of La Contessina were even more helpful than we could have expected, and our stay there was a delight. Much to be recommended.

easy to walk to the train station and very easy to get back and forth from major locations back to the hotel. the staff was very helpful and the food at breakfast was amazingly home cooked for most of the sweets! I will defiantly be coming back!
