Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel was a little tricky to find as it is located a few floors up within a building that is also a restaurant and some kind of art school. The stone stairs were steep and the elevator was a little narrow so may not be good for those with wheelchairs. When we arrived we were too early for check in but an extremely helpful and friendly cleaner used her translator app to tell us the information, let us use the toilet and show us where to leave our bags.
Later on we checked in with ease, and paid the city tax which we were expecting. The receptionist was very helpful and marked a city map with all the places he recommended within our timeframe. He was very knowledgeable about the culture and history of the city and his english was excellent. He showed us around our room, the roof terrace and how to get in later. Was very thorough and friendly.
The room itself was immaculate and had a view of the church behind us. There was a safety deposit box and mini fridge but the fridge ran quite warm. There were lots of toiletries provided and a hairdryer. The shower was a rainforest type and standard type and had good water pressure.
In the evening we went to the roof terrace and the view of the church was lovely. However it didn’t have any lights or candles so it wasn’t possible to stay there very long.
The breakfast buffet was provided in a cafe next door and we were given cards to show them. This was simple enough and the pastries and food provided was lovely. There was a good selection and we could order drinks from the bar. The decor was beautiful and the staff were friendly.
After we checked out we got the train to Verona and the hotel contacted us to inform us our son had left his nintendo switch in the room. They went out of their way to arrange for it to be sent back to us in England. We had to fill in some paperwork and pay obviously but it was so above and beyond for them to go to that effort and we were very grateful.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay and would love to return one day.

2 star hotel in the good location, unfortunately that is the only thing that worked for them oh and AC was very good lol
It is a B&B so don’t have much expectations, confusing to get to but they send good instructions.
Room: 6/10 only points for AC and bed quality. Rooms are old and they are not dirty but bathrooms need a huge update. Shower was so small that even kids won’t fit in it.
We were in the family room which had a random staircase going downstairs from inside the room with a baby gate as a block off! Downstairs was a dark dungeon which was honestly scary, at-least put a door there if you want guest not to access that part.
Overall location was good and breakfast was good the rest was meh. Florence gets busy in the summer so a normal hotel with American standards are close to 600 euros a night so for a Economy price which is close to 250 euros a night for this one is still expensive given the quality of the B&B.

You cannot ask for a better location than this. Close to everything in Florence with very nice staff! The rooms are very clean although a bit on the simple side with no view. But if you are looking just for a clean place to sleep in the heart of Florence this is a good choice.

Please stay away from this B and B. If you have booked here, please do yourself a favour and cancel and book another hotel in Florence. We had the most terrible experience with this hotel. We were forced to spend 2 of the 4 nights in a room with broken air conditioning in the middle of a heat wave. The third night we had to pack and move to another hotel and then on our last night, we had to come back only to pack and move to another room. What a disaster! The reception is non existent. They post reception hours but no one is ever there to deal with issues. The emergency number is simply an answering service with no one to speak to. We were repeatedly told that we would be issued a refund for the horrible experience. On the day of the check out we were assured that someone would be there to issue the refund (they force you to pay in FULL upon check in NOT check out like all other hotels). On the day we checked out Andrea who had promised to meet us at reception never showed up. Then to make matters worse, we saw that they gave the room with the broken air conditioning to another guest notwitstanding that they told us the air conditioning unit could not be fixed! We have travelled extensively throughout Euroupe and we have never experienced anything like this. The family who runs this B and B never responds to issues and they staff their B and B with liars who take no accountability for problems other than to blame their guests. Again, I can't stress how terrible this place is. PLEASE GO ELSEWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Literally, few steps away from all attractions and touristic destinations.
Staff is very friendly.
Valet parking and car permit for ZTL was no problem.
Breakfast is to die for (especially the croissants)

Why I gave it 4? Because I asked for 1 king and 2 twin beds. But for some reason Hotels.com and Expedia didn’t pass my request to Residenza and I was given 1 king bed and 1 sofa bed . I asked to change the room but the cleaning lady had left and the other room with 2 twins weren’t ready.
At the end, I didn’t want to wait, so I accepted the sofa bed.

Just be aware that there are 2 places called RESIDENZA D EPOCA LA BASILICA on the same street with the same address.
It was a bit of a hassle to know at first which is which.

Otherwise, I loved it

Situated only 2-3 minutes walk from the Duomo, and perhaps 6-7 from the train station, the location is excellent. It appears to be the top floor of an art school of some nature, so it's not a hotel in the normal way of things.It was a bit hard to spot from the street as you have to ring the bell to be let in then take the tiny elevator to the 3rd floor.The office/reception secretary lady was most helpful, pointing out tourist options very clearly. Excellent buffet breakfast provided next door at the café/ restaurant Kannubio. Plenty of simple restaurants around and do try the upper floor of nearby Mercato Centrale for lovely lunch experience.

The room itself was very comfortable, though very simply furnished, almost to the point of feeling a little austere. A little short of drawer and shelf space especially as most will want to stay in Florence at least two nights. Nice bathroom, and very clean. Happy to recommend, and a good base for exploring on foot the major attractions of the city. Do go up to Piazzale Michelangelo - Bus 12 from in front of the train station- tickets from Tobacconist T sign shops. Great views over city, and if you are quick the bus seems to hang about there for 10+ minutes so you can do the tourist bt and catch the same one back down!

It’s in a great location very central to most of the attractions. Raphaella who welcomes you is absolutely wonderful letting you know where everything is and helps with restaurants and ideas for the city. The room itself is nice and neat but can get hot as it has no aircon however they said it’s coming. Breakfast is ok just a little on the basic side. But overall it is a nice place to stay and very central.

The "hotel" started operations mid-last year and is made up of a few refurbished units in an old building of a few hundred years old. It is about 10 min walk from the train station, the route is an easy L shape, so don't follow Google map's directions because it is more complicated though slightly shorter. The entrance is right next to a restaurant, so do look out for a small sign.

The reception is on the 3rd floor, the lady Raphaella who received us was really warm and welcoming. There are some steps leading to our room, no, the place is not barrier-free. There is an emergency stairway near the back door of the building which we didn't see during our stay, I suggest guests to check it out first with the receptionist's help upon checking in.

We booked a family room that has a queen bed and a queen size sofa bed, but we realised that the queen bed was actually made up of two single beds so we requested to split the beds into two. It was extra work but the young chambermaid was very obliging and efficient. The sofa bed is a tad too soft, so if you have a bad back, you may want to take the single bed.

The room was clean and spacious, furniture are new and well-kept but we were stunned by the wardrobe. The extremely tall wardrobe is split into two halves. The upper half is where you hang your clothes, and a pole is provided for you to hold the hanger up above your head to do so. The lower half is used to store extra pillows, a fridge and a safe.

Now that is baffling, because in most hotels that I have stayed in, the hangers are at a comfortable eye-level height so users can easily reach them, while the top shelves are for extra pillows and blankets because you are less likely to use them. Hanging clothes is an everyday affair, you do it at least twice a day if you wear jackets or coats in winter, so why make your guests balance the hangers precariously over a pole and to raise it up and down? And you really need the skill to balance the hanger, it will slip from the pole if you are not careful. I felt like walking on thin ice whenever I hang my coat. The hotel should simply allow hanging clothes in the lower half and leave the pillow and blankets in the upper half.

The bathroom is spacious and clean, but it has weird smell, not too pungent but definitely unpleasant. We didn't notice it when we first enter the room but when we came back at night, the smell was pretty strong. We had left the bathroom door open that day, hence the room was filled with the smell too. We had to open the windows to air the room.

We informed Raphaella about it the next morning and she immediately worked on it. She told me they checked the shower drainage and the toilet, there was no chokage, they couldn't find the cause of the smell. She told me all the pipes were changed when the hotel was set-up, so it shouldn't be the sewers. Unfortunately, during our 4-day stay, the smell was still there even though she was determined to get rid of it.

We almost cannot fault this place-it is in an incredible location only minutes from the duomo and the room was large and beautifully air conned. All of the staff were lovely and the breakfast included was fab-set next door in a place called Konnubio.

The only couple of downsides (the only reasons for 4 not 5-but it was a close call) was the late check in fee 20 euros for arriving after 19:30; we arrived at 20:30 and felt it was quite expensive for a city centre b&b that must be used to slightly late arrivals. The other thing was the room did slightly smell of drains-I imagine this is common in all city centre places and didn’t impact us too much.

Overall however it was very close to getting 5 stars and I would definitely recommend to others staying here for a great base in Florence!

The room was stylish and roomy. Clean and well equipped.
However - extremely noisy due to a bar situated in the courtyard which the room was facing. This was extremely annoying after a full day of experiencing a lovely city....
