Residence Hilda is one of the best places to stay in Florence, Italy. The rooms are spacious, clean, and modern. The staff at RH is friendly and extremely helpful. The location is perfect.

Great hotel, Great Price was perfect for our time in Florence. Very big room and clean. We stayed in one of the suites with a kitchen. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to be close to everything. The duomo is literally at the end of the street. Staff was very accomodating, we had odd check-in check-out times. One word of advice to anyone traveling here or anywhere for that matter, use the recommendations for food from the concierge, they are locals and know best! Any restaurant we ventured to on our own was sketchy, but the one's that were recommended were the best.

The best thing is the 100% cleanliness. We stayed for a week in suite 41, on the top floor. It was more or less perfect.

Takes just 5 minutes to walk to the duomo.

Several nearby cafes for breakfast. Secure. There is a safe in main bedroom. More like a hotel than anything else. Intelligent staff. Free wireless Internet. Unreserved recommendation.

We would highly recommend this classy charming intimate hotel. The staff were wonderful, providing a very personalised and professional service. Very warmly welcomed at all times. The rooms were spacious and very clean, the location excellent for exploring Florence. We could view the magnificent Duomo from the front door. Grocery store a few shops away. It was perfect.
We would certainly stay here again on a visit to Florence.
Thank you to all at Residence Hilda for a wonderful visit. A lovely place to return to after a full day exploring Florence.

We got a great weekly rate (which is offered all year long) and were very pleased by the accomodations, location, and staff. We were a 2-minute walk to the Duomo (which could be viewed outside our windows) and Markets (San Lorenzo & Centrale), with quite a few restaurants and small grocers just steps away. The apartment itself (superior suite) was modern, large, good layout, and very comfortable (I'm quite picky about comfy bedding and cleanliness) with a large bathroom (waterfall showerhead) and lovely European kitchenette. And the free WiFi in our apartment worked great, as did the flat screen satellite TV. Anything we asked from the front desk staff was professionally attended to, such as requesting down pillows, airport transportation to/from the hotel (even when we departed at 4:45AM!), train & museum tickets, and restaurant recommendations. So a big thank you to Valentina, Costanza, and the rest of the staff for helping make it such a lovely holiday for us!

Hotel Residence Hilda was a perfect place for me and the couple I was traveling with. The location was perfect for walking around Florence as it was situated just a block or two from the Duomo.
The room we reserved I believe was the Superior Suite which allowed us to have 2 separate bedrooms. The second bedroom is the sofa couch that pulls out into a queen/full sized bed in the family room which also has a kitchen table and small kitchen (which is fully stocked with dishes, silverware, etc. This would be an ideal setup if you are traveling with children!
The hotel was impeccably clean...and the bathroom wonderful. Great shower!!!
For our entire travels in Italy....we found this hotel to be one of the best finds on our trip. We all agreed we would totally want to stay here again.
Note: we arrived with a car that needed to be parked. Because of construction and a weekend ceramics sale within a block of the hotel...driving and parking was a bit challenging. The hotel staff was amazing by providing us exact directions (which we should have used instead of our GPS) to find the hotel and then paid the hotel the $30 EURO to park the car in the garage. (which is only $24 EURO if you pay the garabe attendant directly) I highly recommend the garage parking instead of finding your own.

This was our second time staying a Residence Hilda and yet again it did not disappoint. Our apartment was spacious, airy and spotlessly clean. We were travelling with two small children (age 5 & 2) and there was plenty of space for all of us, having a kitchen was real bonus too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I can't fault this hotel.
