I should have reviewed earlier but haven't had the chance. La Residenza was amazing. It's a fantastic location: close to the station without being scary and lots of restaurants within walking distance. The local bus is also around the corner if you don't want to walk everywhere. The BB itself was clean and fresh with fruit daily. The ladies were very helpful and provided lots of assistance when required.

Where to start with this review...not a single issue with this place, everything went well as planned. Receptionist was super friendly, gave us details about the city + a map upon check-in. Showed us our room and gave us a welcoming snack with juice, fresh fruits and pastries (see pictures).

Location: Near the Florence SMN Station, surrounded with restaurants, coffee/gelato shops, and various attractions. Everything was on walking distance, no need to take the bus. Next door is a small grocery store which also a plus.

Room: We stayed at the Diamond Room with a small patio (see pictures), and it was clean and large (for Italian standards). Gave us daily snack (coffee, tea & croissants). Bathroom is also decent and its has this towel hanger that warms up and get your towels dried in minutes. With this I was able to hand wash some clothes and got it dried in no time, great feature I must say.

Breakfast: Located a block away from the B&B, if you paid for the daily breakfast you will receive a coupon that gives you a coffee, juice, small sandwich and a pastries (see pictures).

You can leave your luggage with the receptionist on your check out day should you decide stay in the city for the day, just make sure your back before they leave as they will not give you a hotel key since you already checked-out.

You could certainly not ask for more centrally located accommodation in Florence than this. All personnel went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The bedroom is of average size and very clean. The bathroom (Ametiste Suite) is very narrow and can become quite congested as the hair-drier (Italian legal requirement) is also in the bathroom. The bathroom has a very high step out of the shower with no grab handle. This is very dangerous as my husband slipped and cut his thumb, while grabbing onto the shower frame.

Room Tip: I would not recommend this establishment to disabled guests as there are stairs to negotiate and the elevator is extremely small!

Giulia was warm and welcoming, the room spotless and the little touches such as the fruit bowl and juice and ensuring there were enough of my favourite teas, a lovely touch. Conveniently located right near the Santa maria Novella train station and a short stroll to the Duomo and centre attractions. Heartily recommend!

Room Tip: My window faced a centre courtyard thus the room was peacfully quiet. A tiny lift made carting luggage up to my floor easy, just a few steps to tackle in the foyer should that be an issue for you.

The location of the B&B is fantastic - just a short walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station. It is walking distance to Florence's main attractions. The staff is excellent. The welcome basket with fresh fruit and juice was a nice touch. My room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The manager (Rafaella, I think) made a reservation for me at the Accademia. So that was one less thing for me to worry about. I had trouble getting into the B&B at night - one of the keys wasn't working properly (In hindsight, anywhere in Italy, it is generally a good idea to check all keys are working correctly, before heading out.). However, as soon as I called the emergency contact no, a maintenance person arrived within a few minutes and opened the door for me.

All in all, it was an excellent stay. I will definitely stay here again the next time I am in Florence.
