Residence Hilda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 2, 2011

In a word, Residence Hilda is spectacular! The staff’s attentiveness and help with everything from recommending local restaurants to shipping packages home was beyond what we expected. Our rooms were spacious and immaculate and provided the perfect place to relax and regroup after days of touring the endless wonders of Florence. Florence truly is a “walking city” and Residence Hilda’s location is an easy walk to both the mind stopping historic grandeur and trendy high end modernity of this magical city. Most reviews focus on the proximity to the Piazza del Duomo (which is true) but the Residence Hilda is literally “around the block” from the Accademia Gallery where the breathtaking and inspiring David is on display (make reservations). Our apartment had a modern well equipped kitchen and on a few evenings we chose to try our hand a preparing delicacies from the Mercado Central which is also close by. Delicious! We give Residence Hilda the highest recommendations and we will stay there when we return to Florence.

Adding to a perfect location- there is great staff, spacious rooms and a 7.euro voucher for an American breakfast available next door. This is definitely one of the best places in Florence.

This was a return trip, for one of us, to Residence Hilda. The friendly staff provided us with excellent service and Alessio, at reception, couldn't do enough to help us with all of our enquiries.
The location is a few minutes from the Duomo, Mercato Centrale and the Accademia. It is ten minutes walk from the station (Firenze SMN).
As two friends staying in Florence, we stayed in a superior suite with a bedroom and sofabed. Both of which were lovely and comfortable. We chose this as we wished to stay in apartment style accommodation in order to have sampled the local produce in our own space.
This is a great place if you wish to be more independent, as there aren't the trappings of a large chain hotel, ie 24hr concierge and 200 cable TV channels. However, what this does provide is a lovely modern space with personalised service.

Huge rooms, very helpful staff, great location. They had free wireless internet and were just a short walk from all the major attractions. They also offer a parking/valet service if you need to bring a car to Florence which we did. King size bed in bedroom which you don't find often in Europe. Couldn't have been better.

I stayed Residence Hilda for 2 night with my family.
>Hotel staff..... They are very kind!.
>location.........Near the Doumo. very nice location.
>room..............very clean. At night a little bit noisy because hotel is near the BAR.

When I booked this hotel I made a mistake that I booked the room for 2 persons but they give us the another offer to us.
