such a nice hotel!”
hotel is just a few walks from the train station firenze sm novella, all tourist spots are all walking distance from this hotel, and if you’re craving for an asian food like us there’s a chinese restaurant near the hotel. staffs are friendly and helpful.
The best hotel of my trip”
Great location located in front of Florence Santa Maria Novella Railway Station (like 3 mins walk). We booked family room and stayed 4 people. In fact, it's pretty hard for us to find a hotel at first since it is located in the same building with other hotels and we didn't notice a small sign. But after a while we found it and we had a very warm welcome from a woman in reception counter (we guess she is a hotel's owner). She gave good advice for us about where, what to do in Rome. While waiting for a room to be ready, we can left all our luggage in her safety room and went out to had lunch and came back later. We were surprise with a room indeed, so big, so beautiful and clean! Bed and pillow is so comfortable too. We also got a coupon for breakfast in a cafe nearby. Staffs are super friendly, speaking English like native speaker. Highly recommend and we would come back again if we go to Florence!
Big Room wt Good Location ”
Its a bit hard to find the hotel as no sign board. Hotel location very strategic, easy access to main tourist attraction and to convenient store. Room is big enough for 4 of us. However its quite a noisy place because of bus stop located exactly infront of the hotel. Anyway its still a great hotel to stay.
This is it!”
We arrived by train, and this was a stone's throw away. Hotel is only a short taxi ride to most landmarks. Near pharmacy, restaurants, etc. The manager was there to meet us when we arrived and seemed to have been waiting and expecting our arrival. She welcomed us, showed us our room and facilities, and gave a brief where-and-what in Florence, and was out of our way after that. We are a fairly young couple, backpack carriers, no children, no fuss, no frills type. Just wanted a clean and comfortable stay. So getting a corner, high-ceiling with dining space room, and automated exterior blinds seemed extravagant enough. Observations: room is huge compared to others we've stayed at in Europe, can feel quite uneasy downstairs outside the main door if you're not used to some people loitering about, free simply breakfast is obtained from a nearby cafe. No problems for us though, it was a great stay.
Good location n great service”
The room was well decorated. It was cosy as I didn't want to stay in just another hotel. The lift is very small so is best to travel light. Actually most of the lifts in the old buildings are old and is very different from our modern cities. The location is just opposite the train stn so do exit from the correct exit. It is just less than 5mins walk from the train stn. You can also walk to the main shopping streets which is quite convenient.
Cosy and super convenient”
The hotel is in a building which hosts other hotels. It's located just above a chinese restaurant which is perfect for us. Hotel is near to the train station, walk-able to the heart of Florence's shopping, the Duomo and pickup points for the day tours. Will definitely stay here again!
Awesome stay in a strategically located hotel”
It was an awesome experience staying here. It is jus opposite the train station. Just take note it shares a building with other b&bs. Upon check in we were given a short intro to Florence and the best way to get around in Florence. When we were showed to our room, we are definitely pleased with its design as it is clean and nicely designed and considerably big compared to other hotels. Bed is comfy. Only downside is that there's loud banging sound of the main doors at night as the main door is heavy and depending on who is staying at the higher level, there may be sounds of dragging chairs etc. but this is definitely not what the b&b can control. Would definitely stay here again!!!
Excellent B & B ”
Superb excellent B & B, the B & B just located opposite the railway station, less than 3 mins walk . B & B surrounded with restaurant, supermarket, shopping street etc. Everything just simply within walking distance. Room is extremely clean and comfortable that I wished I had stayed longer here. Breakfast was served at nearby cafe, wide selection of pastry to choose, and also served good coffee The staffs were always around to answer our enquires , to provide recommendation. I will definately stay here again !
Great location with comfy beds & refreshment”
i stayed in a triple room for 3 nights in sept. as we arrived, we were welcomed by the host and was told to use the old school elevator which could only fit 2 luggage at one go. well, it's better than having to carry 'em all, right? anyways, complimentary refreshments like tidbits, fruit basket & drinks were given to us everyday. i would like to thank for their hospitality, it really made me feel like home!
The B&B la residenza dell'orafo is a quiet small B&B just 3 min walk away from the railway station of Florence and also not faraway from all the "big" attractions of the city like for exemple the Cattedral, market, palazzo vecchio or the uffizi. In each room you get free wi-fi, and you get also a welcome basket with fresh fruits, biscuits, tea and coffé. Each day you get new fruits or biscuits...really magnificient!!The staff is very very friendly and helpfull for all what has to do with city tours or surroundings tours, you can ask everythings and they will help you without problems. The breakfast will served in a bar near from the B&B and you have the choise between 3 diff.menu;there also you find friendly staff! The rooms are clean and news, with a fridge, one TV and a nice bathroom;air condition is also inside.
Pro: Friendly and helpful host They prepared small surprise for us upon check in as it was our honeymoon trip There is a Chinese restaurant right next to the guesthouse. N McDonald's right at the corner. Cons: Sound proof wasn't good as we can hear ppl talking and the door open n close.
The smell of the entire place was amazing. The rooms look better than the photos. Great central location; surrounded by a great selection of restaurants and very close to the train station. Very friendly and helpful staff. Did a Europe trip and this was my favourite place I stayed in.
convenient location, nice staff”
The hotel is well-located in city center of Florence. Just 3 minutes walk from Florence SMN train station to the hotel. Receptionist is very nice and heart-warming. Can speak English well and introduce us to famous spots of Florence. Room is well decorated except the drainage needs improvements.
We were sceptical because of the 2 stars hotel rating, we were greeted by a lovely lady I think her name is Rafaella. There's a lift for our heavy luggages. The lady checked us in promptly and showed us important information and way around according to the map. She was also lovely to the person waiting to be checked in. Our room was next to the reception, we were pleasantly surprised by the size, cleanliness, the comfortable king bed and the position of bathroom. Complete privacy even for a couple., tea making facilities with coffee and teas available. They provide chamomile tea as well which I was so pleased about. Some 4,5 star hotels do not even do that. Fruit basket too. Very good value for money. Close to the train station, a walking distance to everywhere. Few minutes walk to Duomo. Checking out was a breeze. A lady with Russian accent was at the desk. A definite good experience!
the best hotel i have never meet”
we stay here for only one night, and we all think that the time is too fast. first thing to say is that, the hotel is so beautiful and it give us an impression that we feel like in palace, a princess palace. the first word we get into the room is "wow". the worker of the hotel is so nice, they alredy put many tea bags ,water,and some bread on the table which is free of charge. and than when we just settle down, sitting and prepare for the visit of florence, they come and give us more special gift: biscuit, a basket of fruit and coke.....so warm when we left on the next day , they give us a red wine i really love this hotel
