Reviewed 14 November 2009

Close to the Duomo, conveniently located, incredibly clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated, very spacious, very private small hotel/residence. PERFECT.

As others have said, it is a great place to stay. The place itself and the location easily met our high expectations, but the superb and helpful service from Valentina and Costanza and the maids (who gave us the cleanest and well cared for apartment/hotel room that we have ever come across) was an unexpected highlight.

We found Residence Hilda on our recent trip to Florence, after finding the street at our original hotel closed for construction and being woken up at 7 am by construction. Moving to Residence Hilda both saved and made our trip.

Due to the construction outside our original hotel, we went out looking for a hotel to move to, and found Residence Hilda. There were guests leaving as we came in, and we asked them how it was. They said it was lovely, but just to maybe ask for a room in the back, as there are people on the street at night.

We asked at the desk whether they had rooms available. The very nice person told us that they had a room available, and that she would give us a good rate on it. We asked if we could see it (feeling that if we were going to repack and move we wanted to be sure of things), and she said it was being cleaned, but that she had another larger room that we could see, and she would actually give it to us at the same rate. She showed us the room, which was beyond perfect. It was in the back, quiet, beautifully renovated, and like being in your own lovely apartment in Florence just a few blocks up from the Duomo. There was an entry, very nice bathroom, long hall, fold out sofa, dining area, kitchenette (with nice dishes and glasses), his AND hers closets, a king bed, etc. etc. Every time we went back to the hotel, we said how happy we were to be staying there.

The staff were all extremely nice. Helpful, but unobtrusive.

We absolutely plan on staying at Residence Hilda on our next trip to Florence. It was fantastic.

The location of Residence Hilda was absolutely perfect--only 3 blocks from the Duomo and within walking distance of many of Florence's must-see attractions, i.e., the Accademia Gallery which houses Michelangelo's David, the Uffizi Gallery, etc. The roomy suite included a kitchenette, and the staff was friendly and extremely helpful. I most certainly would recommend it to fellow travelers.

Location : 3 min. walking from the Duomo, so perfect.

Room : clean, good decorations, well equipped (kitchen, bathroom), comfortable and big (50 square meters minimum), one bedroom and one living room (with the kitchen).

Service : HUGE. To be honnest, genuinely nice, sweet and efficient persons ARE SO RARE in the hotel industry that when you find that the full reception team is AWESOME, you are in shock. I am forced to put the caps letter I am sorry! ;)

Small mini supermarkets are in the street and in the close streets (Conad, Il Centro). On piazza S. Marco (very close), you have the ultimate "Focacceria Pugi" where you can go each morning to indulge yourself with amazing cakes and food. Every morning we tried different ones. If late and lazy to go out, in the same street you have a chinese & japanese take away restaurants.

Tip: if you need a quiet room to sleep, ask for a room not on the street. The glorious young tourists like to drink a lot and to talk loudly a lot in the streets at night... ;)

The location is amazing, just a 2-minute walk from The Duomo. Stayed in a 2-bedroom apartman which was huge, modern, stylish and spotless clean. This was one of the best accommodation I have seen in a cosmopolitan environment. The staff, the service, the facilities were all five star, the best value for money.
