Reviewed 19 March 2014

This is a little gem. Hidden down a private driveway the hotel is a real joy. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was split level with the bedroom on a mezzanine floor and the sleep quality was excellent. Breakfast was a more than adequate buffet. Within easy walking distance of main rail station and all the attractions of the wonderful city of Florence.

We stayed at this place with my family (my daughter is 2,5 y.o.) This hotel is located in walking distance from the central train station, the Duomo and Palacco Vecchio. We loved their breakfast (nice selection), very nice coffee. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was a bit too warm, but comfy, with a kitchen. Best value for money, we would come back to this place!

We chose this hotel because my fiancee' had previously stayed here while she studied abroad during college. The apartment style rooms were very large and clean. There was a nice kitchen available in the room if needed. The bed was comfortable and the night was very quiet.

The breakfast offered many options and we both thought it was delicious. We also enjoyed petting the hotel cat that hung out in the office and courtyard. He was so soft and friendly.

The front desk is manned 24 hours a day. And did a great job of having a taxi ready for us on Sunday morning right at 6:30 as requested. At check out, I was charged for the weekend and for city-tax. I had thought I had pre-paid the room but was too tired to explain this to the gentleman at the counter who did not speak very good English. I paid the room and decided to follow-up on this issue later. I emailed the hotel and explained the situation. I received an email back right away explaining how they already knew about the situation and had handled it. They canceled the charge to my credit card, including the city-tax. They would pay the city-tax because of the confusion and were very sorry. I feel that this was great service.

this was a very nice hotel, great service, large, clean, well situated. I would recommend to anyone!

we stayed here on Christmas day 2013! Very lovely hotel! they offered a small bottle of wine and a cake to christmas surprise when we check in.
Great location, just 5mins walk from railway station, and within 10mins walk to Mercato Centrale.
we booked a apartment room with a open kitchen, the room is cozy, nice decorated, clean, it is countryside style! spacious bathroom, it is perfect if a bathtub added!
the bedroom is upstair and quiet, we had good sleep every nights.
very good breakfast, cheese, dessert, coffee, juices, bread....
staffs are nice and friendly, i think they are family! also a lovely cat at reception!!

Well situated and very well managed hotel with excellent for Italy breakfast. Everyday cleaning, bathrobe and slippers.Small kitchen in apartment with a decent set of kitchen-ware helps a lot. Certain plus is a kettle what is very important for Russian travelers.

Location of the Residence is just perfect, appartments are tastfully furnished, personal is very friendly and helpful. But most impressive is warm atmosphere of care for visitors created and maintainted by the family running the Residence. We really hope to visit Florence again and we would stay here without any hesitation.
