Superb in every way. I have traveled on business every month for the last 25 years and know a really good hotel when I see it and this is one. No bad points just all good especially the personal service the best I have ever seen in any hotel, great position (could not be better), great large rooms . If any one writes a bad review (which I find hard to believe) then ignore it!!

Residence La Contessina is managed by a family, and you can feel the warmth with their hospitality. It's located quite close to Mercato Centrale and 10-min walk to Duomo. Lovely environment with convenient neighbourhood.

The staff could not be more gracious, warm, and helpful - they were like family.
The hotel is a short walk from the train station and local buses, just a couple minutes from Mercato Centrale and numerous restaurants, just 5 minutes from the Duomo and 15 minutes from Oltrarno.
The room was exceptionally large and had a kitchen. This is a great value and a wonderful, quiet, restful, safe place to stay.

We stayed for 2 nights, close to everthing central on foot as we arrived by train. The apartment was spacious and we were a group of 3 adults and 2 teenagers.
Comfortable stay a home away from home atmosphere, we had 2 TVs so there was not fighting for the remote especially with teenagers. Would definately stay again!!

Very nice and spacious room. Staff is very kind. Location is close to the station and convenient. It's not in the fancy area but this residence were so nice. I recommend.
駅近くでとても便利な場所にありました。スタッフの皆さんも何より親切で早めにチェックインさせてくれました。また部屋が広い!ゆっくりできました。近くにいくつか手頃なトラットリアもあります。ゴージャスエリアではなく、手頃な宿が並ぶ駅近のエリアにひっそりとあるのですが、そこが気にならない方にはお得度が高いです。とても良い宿でした。

Wonderful location
wonderful people

We went to Florence to be tourists and what we needed was a sanctuary after exhausting days sightseeing (and a little retail therapy) and we found the best.
