“Very good location.”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

The hotel is located in a block of top fashions stores: Gucci, Fendi, Armani, etc; just 5 minutes walking to Duomo and 2 blocks from the river. Few tips: verygood breakfast; if you are by car you will pay $25 euros a night; ask for a room with street view, rooms located in the back are smaller with very small bathrooms. Don't worry and use the elevator. It was the first built in Florence and still works.

I stayed here 2 years ago and was very happy to return. I had a large room at the front which was very comfortable and clean. The air con was turned on in the evening if requested. There was a good choice at breakfast including fresh fruit.
It is a short walk from the station and everything is within easy walking distance.
I shall certainly return.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

Huge, clean, charming room, "Above & Beyond" service, amazing location, excellent breakfast--La Residenza has it all--and all with a smile. My wife & I stayed here 15 years ago--were anxious to go back. Was as charming & friendly as we remembered. Only thing that changed was the designer stores lining Via Tornabuoni. Fancy neighborhood, down-to-earth prices.

Room Tip: Don't worry about looking over the street--minimal traffic/noise.

My wife and I stayed here for three days and were content with our stay. With the location being so close to the center of town everything is outside of your doorsteps. Ponte Vecchio/Uffizi Gallery and the Duomo are around the corner along with many museums and restaurants to fit any budget and style of cuisine. What was interesting for us was riding the mahogany elevator that was made at the end of the 19th century. Rooms was great size with classic windows and shutters. Breakfast had a great selection although I stuck to the freshly made scrambled eggs! Only complaint was that the pillows were extremely flat and shower was tiny (with nowhere to put your toiletries.) All in all highly recommendable!

Close to everything you need in Florence. In the heart of all the designer fashion stores. The room was huge and the bathroom almost as big. All was very clean. The elevator was one of those classic old ones out of the 19th century. It's a great street with lots of eating places close by.
Breakfast was included and not bad.
There is a great rooftop area where you can relax and have a drink. The hotel is in a lovely old building. The service is good.

was pleasantly surprised with our stay at la residenza. the front desk are very friendly specially gina. breakfast was good and a lot even though its the same everyday. Coffee was ok although you can order other types of coffee at the counter for a fee. Location was great. near shopping area and tourist areas. near restaurants that filled our stomachs. For family with kids like ours, location is great for they wont walk that long. Near the train station too. Rooms are modern and cleaned everyday. Even the towels were replaced everyday. We left a few valuable things without missing anything. I love florence and will come back again to this hotel.
