Residence Hilda is located on a road leading directly to, and north of, Il Duomo (maybe 3-4 blocks), toward Galleria d'Accademia (where the David is). Its lobby is clean and modern, which also characterizes the hotel. Our (2 parents, an 18 yr old and a 15 yr old) suite was literally a 1 bedroom apartment more than a traditional hotel room or suite. It was furnished very nicely with contemporary designed beds, table/chairs, and other furniture. Beautiful hardwood floors. Nice bathroom, very modern faucets, etc. A couch with a good mattress and a good quality cot made up the 3rd and 4th beds. One was to the side of the kitchen, across a walkway through it (so it didn't really feel like part of the kitchen). No food included, but there's a pretty well-furnished kitchen (plates, pots, pans, utensils, glasses) and small frig.
The front desk staff was very helpful, ESPECIALLY before we arrived. They offered to stock the kitchen in anticipation of our arrival. They gladly procured ticket reservations for us at Galleria and the Uffizi, at no markup or extra charge, which saved us lots of Euros, and they correctly advised that we didn't need them elsewhere. Excellent find, well located, and definitely a strong recommendation to others to stay at this hotel.
