We had a two room suite on the top floor facing the street for 8 nights. Could have stayed forever - one room had a kitchen, dining and sitting area and the other was a bedroom with a king bed. Nice bathroom also. It was spotlessly clean, modern, roomy, comfortable and in a great location - walking distance to everything but not stuck in the crowds. Excellent staff/owners - very helpful with tickets and restaurants.

Thoroughly enjoyable high standard safe hotel with inviting entrance, extremely helpful staff-particularly the delightful Costanza- in an excellent location. Advice from staff on all aspects of our stay proved invaluable and their energy to assist and ensure our stay was smooth and without hiccup was exceptional.
Highly recommend this as a home away from home-just ensure teenagers assist with the dishwashing!
Great hot chocolate on the corner same side as the hotel.Taxi from train station to hotel only a short trip and Duomo just down the street. A good walk to Piazza Michaelangelo for a view you'll remember forever.

We stayed four days at this lovely residence and had a wonderful time. The junior suite was on the fourth floor(elevator avail) and was sunny and bright and had all wood shiny, clean floors. It had separate bedroom and living area. Next to the hotel was a superb coffee shop/bakery which was one of the best in the city. We had coffee and pastry each morning there each morning and saw locals come and go. The hotel has no food service but has delivery menu with restaurants if desired. There is no need though for delivery. Lovely food market on the same street or two blocks away in the other direction. The street was very quiet despite being two blocks from the Duomo and one block from the Duomo and two blocks from the museum which houses the "real" David. Front desk attendants and managers were all superb. Wonderful personalities and very helpful and restaurants etc. Their names, Valentina, Francesco and Costanza are worth remembering. They made the Residence Hilda very special.

Overall a good Hotel. These are apartents not rooms. Typical hotel services are restricted to certain hours (concierge for example) although very very friendly and helpful . Towels were not good and even though very clean, the smell of the detergent used is not nice. Amenities are just ok. It is a nice place to stay if you have kids; the kitchen and table make it very conveinient.

We were in Florence for a conference and also as tourists. We were travelling with our 6 yo daughter and chose to stay at RH as it looked like a serviced apartment. We chose the family suite. Reception was closed between 2 and 5 but we they were able to accommodate us with prior arrangement. The family suite was large and it had a small kitchenette that was very well stocked with what we needed to make a simple meal. It was clean and lots of light. It's location is great. Just a short walk to the Duomo and to most of the local sights. Also there is a laundromat just opposite to RH which was a bonus! Especially when travelling with a child and in summer. The staff were very friendly and had good advice. There is a gorgeous pattisierie next door for coffee and cake or nibbles and sweets. If we were to return to Florence we would definitely stay there again.

The location was superb, we could walk anywhere. The suite was spotless. The staff was very accommodating. They gave excellent advice on restaurants, how to get around, and what to see.
