The place is only few minutes away from the main station, easy to find, and near to the tourist attraction. The receptionist was very friendly and welcome. I think i had the best night stay here, compare to other accommodation i stay during my trip in Italy. The room was spacious, and most important is very clean. Recommended for those...

It was a nice surprise to find a so well cured place, new and clean. In each room coffe maker and fruits are available as welcome. Good and kind assistance from the receptionists. One minute far from the central train station and from the heart of the city.

The location is near to Santa Maria Novella and within a walking distance to pretty much everywhere in the historical center. Room was very clean and cozy, bed perfect - not overly soft, which I prefer. The staff was very responsive and handled small problems without delay - and there weren't many to handle. All in all, my room left...

The room exceeded my expectations. We traveled via train from Rome and it was a mere 5 mins walk from the main train station. Very convenient for our family of 4. My girls loved the room so much. We had to ring the bell downstairs initially to gain access to the room which was located on the 2nd floor. we...

We took the local trains from Vernazza, through Lucca and Milan, arriving in Florence on the afternoon of July 27, 2015. The main Milan train station is huge. Go across the street and past the McDonald's restaurant. La Residenza dell'Orafo is on that street about 2 city blocks on the left. The door is locked so you must ring the...

The Residenza dell-Orafo is ideally located. It is literally a 5-minute walk from the main train station and an additional 10-15 minutes to the Duomo or (in a different direction) the Ponte Vecchio. Additionally, the staff takes ample time to explain good less well-known sights to see and also offer recommendations on where you can eat for little (or more)...

This B&B has the potential to deserve a five star rating but on the basis of some minor niggles I think it has to drop to four. First the good points, which far outweigh the bad. The B&B is located close to the main station SMN and relatively easy to find. The residence is on one edge of the historic...
