We stayed for 5 nights and loved everything about this hotel.
The rooms/apartments are wonderful and very large. You have a separate bedroom, large bathroom, hallway entrance, lounge area & kitchen.
The bathroom was huge, lots of room to move, and a huge vanity room for all your amenities plus more.
The bathroom and the shower area were spotless. I was so impressed with how clean it was.
Bed linen was high quality and comfortable. The bed was hard but that's the way Italian beds are it seems. Fresh orchids in the bedroom was a lovely touch. And the walk in robe is bigger than in some houses.
Check in was easy, and the staff are just wonderful.
Easy walk to the major attractions.
We had a room facing the street. This street is busy and noisy 24 hours a day. So if your a light sleeper request a room away from the street. Otherwise you will get no sleep. We shut the windows, curtains and outside shutters at night, and I slept with earplugs and I still found it difficult to sleep. I only wish I had asked for a room at the back.
Overall this is a excellent choice in Florence and I would highly recommend it.

My wife and I, along with our three small children, recently spent five nights at the Residence Hilda. The location is outstanding, only a few minutes walk to the Duomo. The rooms are large and quiet, especially by Italian standards, and although the rates are a bit on the high side, you get your money's worth. The design and condition of the rooms and the common areas are also very good - so no unpleasant surprises there. We booked rooms 10 and 12 which was perfect for a family of like ours, because these rooms are located only one flight of stairs up from the lobby. The staff was friendly and polite, and the concierge, Valentina, provided us with excellent sight seeing and restaurant recommendations. The only "negative" I can speak of is the neighborhood cafe (OK Cafe) they send you to if you sign up for breakfast with the hotel. The juice is not fresh and the food was mediocre. Instead, I would recommend going to one of the two or three other cafes in the area which serve fresh juice and excellent coffee and baked goods. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to Florence.

We had a great stay at Residence Hilda. Location is perfect, room is spacious and we had all the appliances we needed. I sent them a list of beaverages and they were all alredy there in the refrigerator when I arrived. The only thing that could improve is the windows' insulation because sometimes people walking on the street can talk a little loud, but it didn´t really bothered me. Definitely my choice next time in Florence.

This is a wonderful home away from home to stay while exploring Florence. All the attractions are within easy walking distance, yet the place is not in a very busy spot. Service was impeccable: very, very kind people who will help you out with anything. The kitchen is great for cooking your own meals. The beds are very comfortable. Slept like a baby. The bathroom is luxurious. The only thing to improve would be the wifi: the signal is sometimes weak and you need to log in every time you leave the building and return again. The delicious ice cream salon Carabe is around the corner by the way...

Room Tip: We stayed in room 21 and it was lovely. Huge space with bedroom, sitting area, kitchen and bathroom...

The location is just 2 minutes walk to the Dome. The appartment was very spacious and wealthy, very nice bathroom encluded. The service is very personally and special. We travelled with our big dog, which was very welcome and was cuddled all the time. They even booked a responsible dogsitter for us in advance who walked our dog to a park every day. Thanks to Valentina and Luca! We are looking farward to see you again.

This little gem of individual apartments is just right as a base for independent travellers who spend long hours on their feet and can return to prepare simple Tuscan fare purchased from the nearby supermarket or Mercato Centrale (10 min walk away). We found pasta, salad, salumi, cheese and fruit with a bottle of Chianti worked very well. All the sights in the centre are easily accessible on foot and the main station is also convenient for day trips. We went to Pisa one day and Arezzo on another which made for a refreshing change of pace. The apartments are spotless and furnished comfortably without frou frou. The management is great - helpful and friendly. My husband and I had a very happy time here and recommend it wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has double-glazed windows if you are a light sleeper.
