A Memorable Place in Florence

Such an absolutely lovely hotel. This place is really special both in its atmosphere and attention to detail but also the wonderful staff. We've been spoiled by the delicious breakfasts served daily in the downstairs dining area. Can't decide which I liked more the dining room decor or the breakfast choices. Starting off the day with the prettiest and most delicious cappuccino and following it up with all sorts of sweets, cakes, pastries, ham & cheese, cereal, quiche, yogurt, scrambled eggs and bacon (and I am not remembering it all). All of this is served on the prettiest mismatched china you've ever seen -- very boho, shabby chic! Our room was the one with the "oven" that now houses a flat screen TV. Love how they've maintained the original character and also repurposed some older elements. Our shower was large and had good water pressure. I also luxuriated in a soaking tub with some lovely bath salts that the hotel gifted us. I also loved the hotel artwork that included antique photos and original portraits of various people. Right outside our room there was a lovely portrait of a young girl with the most beautiful blue eyes. I enjoyed seeing her during our comings and goings!

Florence’s secret treasure!

This small boutique hotel in beautiful Florence is an absolute stunner! Perfect location moments from the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio but none of the noise and traffic. Our deluxe double room was immaculate and serviced daily, with a huge, luxurious bathroom and plenty storage space. Breakfast was a delight, like stepping back into a bygone era all the china so elegantly mismatched and charming. The food itself was fresh, delicious and certainly plentiful. All the staff were friendly and pleasant and so very helpful; we had restaurant reservations made for us and it was no bother to leave our luggage after checkout and pick up later in the day - we were even able to use a washroom to freshen up before our journey. We would go back in a heartbeat and cannot wait to do so!

(Video) CRAZY LUXURY OUTLET MALL IN FLORENCE ITALY (Gucci Outlet With 50% Off!?)

The perfect hotel in the heart of the old city

This is one of the best hotel experiences we have had in a long time. The attention to detail and high level of customer service was superb. This boutique hotel in a lovely old building has just eight rooms - all individually decorated with lots of original touches. We had reserved a deluxe room which had a very large luxurious bathroom and a mezzanine featuring an old telescope! A well equipped minibar was also offered as the hotel bar was not functioning. Although at the time we were the only guests in the hotel (Florence had only just opened up after the covid lockdown)we were given a full buffet breakfast by Christina : fruit salad, cakes, pastries, breads, jams and fresh juice - breakfast was an experience to look forward to in itself! We arrived by car and the hotel arranged garage parking for us so the car was taken for us on arrival and brought back when we left. The Residenza is perfectly situated in the old centre - a few minutes walk from the Piazza Signoria and the Ponte Vecchio. I would not hesitate to recommend. We enjoyed perfect customer service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Thank you to all the staff!

Room Tip: Garage parking is not cheap but inevitable as this part of Florence is forbidden to traffic.

Unique stay for a unique occassion

We stayed in February and had the most brilliant time. The hotel is one of the most beautiful we have every stayed in, superbly refurbished but with so many original architectural features and furnishings. We stayed in the deluxe room, which was a great choice: mezzanine balcony, huge double bed and a lovely roll top bath were real highlights. Breakfast each day was an experience in itself, with fresh pastries, meats and cheeses accompanied by expertly made coffee. We took our time each day and really soaked in the picturesque surroundings. The staff really made the trip, super helpful and attentive - plus they brought as a really thoughtful surprise when they found it we had made our engagement in the hotel! Honestly could not have picked a better location for such an important moment - we will remember it forever!

Without doubt the most perfect place you’ll ever stay!

I chose this wonderfully special ‘home’ to stay in in the heart of Florence for my husband’s surprise 50 th & I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place to stay for the occasion! The location for starters is spot on , close enough to walk to everywhere but slightly off the beaten track so it’s not too busy at night! Our hosts were absolutely amazing , nothing was too much trouble we were given recommendations for a restaurant for one night which was fantastic, help when we were planning our trip to Venice for the day & breakfast adjustments for me being a vegetarian ! The warmth extended to us whilst we were there was that of being with friends which most definitely added something to our stay, Alessio, Josie & the gorgeous Klajda went above & beyond anything I would’ve expected! The place itself Is like stepping back into 18 th century Florence but with a modern twist to make it truly comfortable & the attention to detail is phenomenal! One evening we came back to a bottle of fizz with two very generous slices of a delicious chocolate cake as a gesture for my husband’s special celebration- it’s the thoughtful touches that make all the difference & this place has those in abundance! Thankyou all for making out stay absolutely perfect! Emma & Bill

Delightful Small Hotel

This is a lovely small hotel on a relatively quiet street near the center of town. Eight guest rooms, breakfast area, functioning bar with limited hours. My wife found it after some extensive online research. It is basically a renovation of an old townhouse dating way back, with lots of cute touches. Staff was very friendly and helpful with reservations, suggestions, etc.

Beautiful hotel

This possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are stunning, breakfast delicious and customer service outstanding. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The prosecco welcome for my Husbands 40th was the icing on the cake. With there only being 8 boutique rooms, it was peaceful and they treated you like family. It is so close to all attractions. On our day trip to Venice they made us a breakfast for our journey. Thank you for everything, we can’t wait to return. Emma and Craig McClintock

Excellent Location!

The location of this boutique guest house is faultless. 5 minutes walk to the Uffizi and many other attractions. Staff were extremely helpful - they booked our taxi to the train station on departure, showed us all the room facilities on check in, gave us excellent directions and suggestions of places to eat in the evening. If I had to find a couple of small faults they are: it would have been nice to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room, there was not enough storage for clothes in the room - one of the small wardrobes was in the bathroom, breakfast choice for vegetarians could be improved. However, having said all of this we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this quirky little place which has kept the character of the original property with a modern touch.

Superb Boutique Hotel

Quite simply a superb experience. Great location (only a 3 minute walk from Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery). Gorgeous room. Wonderful breakast. Par excellence staff who took care of our every request from the moment we arrived until we left. As an example, we arrived by train from Venice, much earlier than check-in time so our room was not ready. We were immediately shown a bathroom / shower room to freshen-up and a sitting room where we were provided with complimentary drinks and snacks. When we returned later in the day for "check-in" all or luggage had already been moved to our room. And the service was same until we left. Would stay again, no question.

BEST PLACE EVER!!!

This is truly one of the most unique, charming, and beautiful hotels in which my husband and I have ever had the pleasure of staying. The staff was incredible, especially Josie (she even made us a to-go breakfast one day when we had an early morning tour !). There are only 8 rooms in this lovely place, and it is located in a quiet yet convenient area (also near the river). We had a superior double room, which was spacious and beautiful. The bed in this room is an American-size queen or larger (definitely NOT an American "double" bed). Breakfast was absolutely wonderful. Can't wait to go back! We've been home for a month, and I'm still dreaming of this place!

We are glad you liked your room and find your bed comfortable as well as our location. About the breakfast..how we can make our guests do an early tour without having it!!
