The Residenza Castelli is an excellent place to stay in florence! Everything is renewed, modern and extremely comfortable! I really don't have enough words to describe the kindness and sympathy of the staff, they were simply amazing and they did everything they could to make us feel at home! They even left a surprise champagne bottle in our room because it was my girlfriend's birthday, it was really great! The location of the Residenza could not be better, it is right next to ponte vecchio! I can't really talk about the prices because we found an amazing promotion and the price for two nights was really good! The only negative point is the noise from the street that you hear in some rooms, but even with this, the Residenza Castelli is excellent!

We came to Florence after Verona during our honeymoon. First when we found location we were shocked, that it is right next to Ponte Vecchio bridge. We were met by Pamela. Ah Pamela! Amazing lady, with a great aura and sense of humor. This kind of people make ur stay even more pleasant. The residence has only 6 rooms. As we mentioned we are in honeymoon, when we entered the room we had a bottle of champagne and cure handwritten card with congratulations :) the room was clean and the bed was good size. Bathroom is a bit small, but everything is clean and neat. We had TV, complimentary water every day and good neighbors. The only thing is that street is a bit noisy, all day and night its full of tourists and people dont stop walking till early morning. So for those, who is sensitive in sleep i would not advice it.

Breakfast is very limited, but what a great thing about the place that you can have your tea and coffee anytime of day and night since the kitchen is open. Also you have a kettle in a room with free tea and free 2 cups of nespresso.

For us it was a good stay, because Pamela and Margarita (whom unfortunately we met only the day we were signing out) are just amazing ladies and it was a huuuge pleasure to know them!

Very helpful, kind, sincere and just lovely!

Recommend this place for the budget.

this residence has the best of both worlds,the location which can't be better as it's 5-10 minutes walk from the major florence attractions and the staff which is wonderful and very helpful and meet your demands,we stayed for four nights and we stayed very comfortable in our clean average sized room which has all the necessities of a 5 star hotel !.The morning breakfast was very nice and fresh too....I have no problem at all coming back.

We chose the place because of good opinions and room descriptions. It was a mistake. The room looked completely different, was very small, withe microbathroom. It was impossible to close the window completely. Their maids enterd our room twice without knocking. Good things: location, location, location. And a very nice manager - a person who greated us at the beginning.

We stayed for one night during a 2 week trip to Italy. It was our nicest accommodation during this particular trip. Booking was easy and efficient. I had emailed a couple of properties the night prior and Residenza Castelli promptly returned my email that evening. We drove to Florence from Umbria. The guest house was a bit tricky to locate, but the staff were available by phone to assist. We had secured two rooms and both were large, clean and nicely decorated. The location was amazing. The only negative was not all the jets in our shower worked correctly. I would definitely return to this hotel, however.

Great location, just a couple minutes from the Ponte Vecchio, but on a quiet side street. There is no front desk, but checking in and out was a breeze. The folks who run the hotel were timely and wonderful. The room was spotless and a good size for Florence.

The room, service and location were fantastic. Very kind, friendly, caring and helpful staff.
Super clean, modern facilities with everything you need. Because of its wonderful location just a stone throw from Ponte Vecchio Bridge, however, the only one small issue was that it tended to be slightly noisy at night and a lot of trucks in the early morning bringing deliveries to the stores. I was there 5 nights and got used to it after the first night. But if you are a heavy sleeper then it wont be a problem.

Room Tip: Rooms farther from the main street will be quieter. (There are only 6 rooms in the entire facility)
