It's a really peaceful and clean place close to the city center and the hotel staff was really friendly and keen to help whenever we had a question. The rooms were absolutely quiet without any street noise or annoying neighbors. Breakfast was way above italian standard - with little pizza sliced, great selection of fruits, all kinds of cereals, good bread, etc.
You are literally within walking distance to all sights, great restaurants and shopping streets.
BEWARE! The traffic in the city is mad and the hotel is situated in a very narrow street. They keep changing the directions of the one way streets in the city center up to six times a month as the owner of the hotel told me. Our navigation system with the latest map updates was not really helpful. If you turn up by car be sure to bring patience and solid driving skills, especially when it comes to parking your car on the hotel property ;) They provide a parking site that you should book additional to your stay (30 Euros per day which is unfortunately quite a lot!)

Room Tip: We booked a little appartment kind of room with a kitchen which was nice and spacious and the bedroom on a second floor (room 210).

Dear Guest,
thank you so much for taking the time to post a review on the site for us. We are glad to know that you feel good at the Residence La Contessina and that you appreciated our breakfast and location. Regarding the road: to arrive here with the GPS you have to set up Via Bernardo Cennini ( the perpendicular' street with our) and at the end turn right. If you set up Via Faenza the GPS send you in the other side of this street.
Regarding the change of the directions of the street: we think that you came while there was the Pitti Image, a very big meeting of fashion. Every year the municipality of Florence do this, maybe also six times... but just in this month.
We do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Residence on a future visit in Florence.
Best Regards.

If you ever come to Florence for a holiday, this is the place to stay. This is a great little bunch of apartments/flats tucked away from the street on Via Faenza. Just a short walk from an infinite amount of excellent places to eat and sights and walks to fill your days with.

This was my first time in Florence and I could not have chosen a better hotel for my stay. Minutes from Firenze SMN and situated on a pleasant street minutes from the sights. Hotel was clean and the staff were very accommodating and helpful. Although there was a slight mix up with the accommodation when I first arrived, it was sorted very quickly and did not detract from my stay.
I would also reccommend the restaurant of Piero and Enzo which is situated next door to the hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times, and will never choose to stay anywhere else in Florence! The family that runs Residence La Contessina is so warm and hospitable, knowledgeable of the city, and eager to please guests. Rooms are spacious and clean, and all needs of guests are considered and accommodated to the best of the hosts' abilities. The breakfast spread is the best I've ever found in Italy (after staying at dozens of places all over, having lived here for 3 years). It's only a 5 minute walk from the train station, and though you're comfortably tucked on a side-street, the hotel is not difficult to find. You're close to major attractions as well. Everything about my stay here was just lovely, as usual. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends, and I am happy to have shared stays here with almost all of my immediate family.
