La Residenza dell'Orafo
Ranked #59 of 657 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 January 2014

We stayed 2 nights here and it was awesome. Huge room, enough space if you come just for shopping, very clean and well-maintained!The lady at the reception was super friendly and very helpful. Breakfast place is just about 50m down the road in a small corner cafe. The residence is very close to Santa Maria Novella train station. If you have big bags, this is perfect location, practically next to the station. The only thing about this residence is, its quite easy to miss. It is located just after a bus-stop and before the Chinese restaurant. You'll find it, not that difficult.
I would definitely recommend this place and we will definitely come back again!

Some things are a little quirky, like having to unplug the frig to plug in the water heater. It's Europe, and your not paying $300 euro per night. Enough said. What makes this place special can be summed in two names, Raffaella and Giulia. Raffaella greeted us and showed us our room, brought us fruit, gave us a map with all the sites marked, you couldn't ask for more. In the evening Giulia took over. If you needed help with anything, Giulia was on the spot. If we wanted to go to a restaurant, Giulia would call, check availability and make a reservation. The service provided by Raffaella and Giulia never ceased. If you are interested in friendly helpful staff more than the amenities at the Ritz, this your place. Actually, this review is my way of thanking both of them for all they did to make our stay in Firenze so special!

Room Tip: If you fly in follow the crowd to the bus, it let's you off at the train station which is a coup...

Thanks to tripadvisor for recommend this hotel to me! The hotel is very close to the train station n places of interest . We stay in Silver Room, is clean and spacious ! The staffs are very cheerful and attentive ! They recommended a nice coffee bean for us to buy, but we can't find, they are so thoughtful to buy a packet of coffee bean to us while we checked out, is a surprise to us!
There is a Chinese Restaurant 金都大洒楼 just next to it, they serve good Chinese food and the price is very reasonable. I will stay in this hotel again when I come back to florence!

Stayed here for 5 nights. Very close to the train station, and actually pretty close to almost everything in the town centre. It was our honeymoon, and they prepared a tray of fruits and a bottle of prosecco for us, and also did a cute pair of swans on our bed! Really nice of them!

Breakfast is at a cafe down the street, with juice and coffee/tea and pastries. Not a wide spread, but good enough for us to start the day.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone, single or family. The rooms are nice, clean and big (at least for both of us). The staff are also very helpful with our questions, like how to get to San Miniato. There is a supermarket next door, and some pretty good restaurants, eg La Lampara, down the street.

We stayed at the Ametista room, with a balcony overlooking the main street. Could get a little noisy with human and traffic at night, especially on a weekend. But no big deal for us :)

If you are looking for a hotel / accommodation with a gym/pool/bellboy/5star, then maybe this is not the right place for you. If you are looking at somewhere with a home-feel and a human touch, this is it. And did I mention the location? :)

Very well located; next to the main train station (Santa Maria Novella) and walking distance from most main attractions. Clean rooms, and quiein spite of the busy streets below. The best feature, however, is the staff. Both Iulia and Rafaella are friendly, resourceful and helpful.

Warm, warm welcome. Big, clean room (family of 4) and incredibly convenient location - 2 minutes walk to train station, 15 mins to Ponte Vecchio at a slow walk, 5 mins to Duomo. It is great value for money. Simple, convenient and done well. In Italy, the basics can be missing but this is very good budget accommodation - with little touches like fruit, fruit juices and a kettle and tea pot in the room.
