Would recommend this with great pleasure.

Great location near train station. Walking distance to many attractions. Room is really clean and make you feel at home. Tastefully furnished. Staff was friendly. Feel good to go back to room after a long day out. Supermarket is just two doors away. Restaurant and eateries are plenty. Area is safe. Breakfast was simple but good enough to start your day.

Clean, comfortable, air conditioned room with wifi, TV and welcoming bowl of fruit. The location was perfect for the city centre, tourist attractions, restaurants, railway station and Congress Centre which are all within an easy walk. Out of hours contact number provided for any issues. Romantically decorated.

Coming from our Paris and Venice leg, we stayed in this pleasant B&B.

Literally a stone throw's away from the train station, we chose this B&B precisely because of this reason since we would be carrying lots of luggage and Florence was our Italian mid stop before our last leg to Rome.

Room was clean and very girly, which my wife liked. shower had full body jets which is great. Our room was overlooking the street had a balcony, not noisy, but remember to keep the blinds fully closed though.

Not much else to say since its location and room was very good, props to Juiia, she was really really helpful in directions, bus routes, and restaurant suggestions.

Once again, would stay here when we go back to Florence!

We were a family of three with an eight year old daughter and we stayed in this wonderful place in April 2013 for three days. Rafaella was a charming hostess who made us comfortable with her warm smile and a basket of fresh fruits and a drink on our arrival. Her tips to get around this most beautiful of cities was a great help. The hotel is situated right next to the main railway station and within walking distance of all the main attractions of the city. This made it easy for us to get around to see all the sights. We were even able to squeeze in a half day trip to Pisa in the three days we were in Florence. The location and the excellent service more than made up for the slightly smaller room. Thanks to La Residenza dell'Orafo for adding to our amazing Florence experience.
