“Great location”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Spent 7 days here to really see Florence and this boutique hotel/apartment was the ideal place for our base. We had no car and could walk to all the old town antiquities, to many restaurants and quaint cafes, and to all the shopping one could ask for! The staff was very helpful and all speak English well. Accommodations were simple and comfortable and the breakfast was very nice and plentiful. Thank you Residence La Contessina for making our stay wonderful.

Pleasantly surprised. Good space, split level, teenagers slept upstairs. Very clean and homely feel. Lovely owners, very helpful and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to our friends.

Secure parking, family rooms, and a central location. A perfect safe base from which to explore the magical city of Florence. A friendly, extremely helpful family run Residence. They even posted my wife's earrings back to the UK! (that we accidentally left in our room).

Finding hotels that will accommodate more than 3 in a room can be difficult in Europe. We lucked out by finding La Contessina. We are a family of 6 with 4 teenagers. They put us in their largest room with an added cot. The room was very clean and welcoming. The staff at the front desk couldn't have been friendlier. WIFI was included and worked well. Breakfast is included and was very good. There was a lot of variety and everyone in our group found something that they liked. The location is wonderful!! We were able to walk every where and most prime attractions are within a 20 min walk, many popular spots are within 5 -10 minutes walking. We would highly recommend!

I'm just leaving this place right now and it has been truly a great experience. The rooms are very clean, the people here are really wonderful and provide great service to their patrons.

We selected La Contessina based on the recommendation of a friend of a friend here on TripAdvisor. We spent 3 nights in one of their double hotel rooms in mid-July and had a wonderful time! Every interaction that we had with every member of the family and staff was professional, respectful and helpful. From recommending nearby dining establishments to reserving tickets for us at the Uffizi and Accademia Galleries, they took care of us. The room was nice, clean and pleasant with air-conditioning and Wi-Fi. The hotel is located on a quiet street with a number of nice places to eat, just two blocks from the railroad station and within easy walking distance of every major attraction in Florence. Very highly recommended!

Room Tip: We had a hotel room (rather than an apartment) facing the street, so there was a bit of noise with t...

This hotel is walking distance to everything you would want to visit in the city. 5 minutes to train station, 10 minutes to Duomo. There are many restaurants in the area to choose from. The owners are the friendliest people you will ever meet. The room we stayed in was in a separate building, recently remodeled, had AC and was large by European standards. We didn't hear any noise in our room. TV is a bit small but who watches TV on holiday. The free breakfast was amazing. Not easy to find by yourself. We took a taxi from the airport(20 Euros). We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for the larger room with AC.
