Residence Michelangiolo

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Just as the other reviews say: perfect location if you come by car, easy to reach, very large and well appointed rooms, high ceilings, quiet (if you close both sets of windows), attentive and helpful staff. It was wonderful to come back to our wonderful quiet room after tackling the many gorgeous churches & monuments and hordes of fellow visitors. Would return here if I visited Florence again.

Room Tip: Our room (fuchsia) was at the from, but with both sets of windows closed we didn't hear a thing...

Very nice, quiet property, not far from the hustle and bustle of central Florence. We had a two-room apartment, which was perfect for our family of four (2 college-age children). The walk along the river to central Florence is lovely. Alternatively, there is a bus stop close by. We also walked up the nearby path to Piazza Michelangelo for a beautiful sunset with a great view of the city.

Angela is a friendly, helpful host, always ready to provide directions or restaurant recommendations. She also saved me by running down to the post office the morning after we left to send some things I left behind such that they caught up with me in Venice. Thank you, Angela!

Residence is in a perfect location, especially if you are driving. Easy walking access to historic center, but away from crowds of Florence. Rooms are large, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. Angela's recommendations for places to get caffè in the morning to great local trattorias for lunch and dinner were perfect, and she and her husband are very attentive and gracious hosts. Secure parking area was a plus. All-in-all it is a perfect choice for a stay in Florence. Would not hesitate staying here again. Grazie mille, Angela.

We have been staying at the Residence Michelangiolo for the last seven years! This is our 5th stay after staying 3 times in hotels in the inner city with the tourist mania. I can't emphasis the difference in staying in this quiet and relaxing residence and avoiding the inner city. You have easy access to all of the museums and monuments in Florence and return home to where the actual Florentines prefer to live. A wonderful refurbished villa with attentive owners Angela and Cherubino that take care of your every need. This is our home away from home in the lovely Florence region. We will undoubtedly return again.

Room Tip: We prefer the 1st floor with access to a lovely exterior patio garden off our room.

A fantastic period building in a great location - perfect for exploring the site and sounds of Florence.
Angela the proprietor couldn't have been more helpful - providing recommendations for dinner / breakfast etc and even printing out my boarding pass for my flight for me!
The secure free of charge parking is also a bonus!
I'd highly recommend it.

My family and I had a lovely stay at the Residence Michelangiolo! The house and accommodations were absolutely lovely! Everything about the Villa had great charm and Angela helped make our Florence and Tuscan trip very memorable! Angela runs the Residence Michelangiolo and she helped plan a Tuscan wine tasting tour and recommended great local restaurants. I can't say enough great things about Angela, the villa and our amazing Florence experience!

This was a girlfriend's trip that we planned on the spur of a moment. I had stayed here before and went back for more. We originally booked a smaller room with twin beds, and though the room was lovely, I wanted the room I had stayed on before, so we arranged an upgrade to the top floor jr suite. It has a private entrance outside of where the elevator drops you. We had a large sitting area with a table and 4 chairs, 2 upholstered chairs for relaxing, a kitchen in an armoire (including: 2 burners, sink, fridge, espresso maker, dishes, stainless, and cups and glasses, and the important wine opener. We had a supremely comfortable king bed with 2 small night tables and lamps which were not good for reading. Since I had a kindle it didn't matter. We got free wi-fi. Angela, our host, was so dear! She gave us directions for all our day trips, dinner suggestions, called for reservations. One evening she told us about this deli in the 'hood and it was fab! They gave us a discount which amounted to a free bottle of the most delicious San giovesse wine! We walked 1 block home and had a feast! Angela also told me about a tiny store a 5 min walk away that had delicious pine nut muffins that were more like Pound cake( awesome with expresso we made daily!)
Our bathroom was lovely an spacious. We had a claw foot tub with a hand held shower. Lovely thick white towels that were replaced daily. As was still and frizzante water in our fridge. The only noise was the occasional motorcycle speeding by and church bells from next door. Great place for friends, romance, reunions, weddings! It's gorgeous.
