“Excellent Location”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

The b&b is near the main attractions of Florence, has a nice room with a very good and clean bathroom. It also has a kitchen with fridge, microwave which is very handy for small snacks. We arrived during the afternoon, entered using the access code sent via e-mail and found the key to the room. I would definitively stay again.

I would rate this B&B as average because the wonderful aspects cancel out the negative. On the negative side, this B&B does not provide breakfast. They do have a pleasant kitchen with some dishes and kitchen tools and a pay-for espresso machine. The staff is only on the premises a few hours in the morning and you must use a code to access both the street door and the hotel. While the absence of staff was not an issure for check in, nor did we have any problems, it would have been reassuring. The streets stayed loud, but I'm not sure that you could find a quiet room anywhere in Florence. On the plus side, the location is extremely convenient, on a pedestrian throughfare with several eateries, shops, and a short walk to all the main points of interest. The rooms were clean, although the coverlets were a bit worn and threadbare. The high ceilings and bright rooms were a nice change from cramped hotel rooms. The hotel can be found on the 3rd floor of the building...use the elevator.

This place is a gem in an ideal location in the middle of all there is to see and eat in Florence. The room and facilities were specious, well-kept and clean, and the view of the Duomo was inspiring. The common-area kitchen was very handy. The key arrangement for access worked well, and the staff was very helpful. The best value for visitors to Florence.

Located just between Duomo and Uffizi.
Room and lavatory are clean.
Free wifi and wired internet.
Microwave oven and other cooking ware free to use in the common room.
Quiet.


Note:
1. Mostly self-serviced, staff only there in the morning.
2. Be sure to bring the access code before you arrive. You'll need to enter by yourselves.
3. The provided towel is not comfortable, recommended to bring your own.
4. No breakfast. But there are a few good restaurants nearby, and also pizza shops.

I stayed at the Residenzia della Signoria for 5 nights in October 2011. I had a beautiful elegant room with a very spacious modern bathroom. The room was in excellent condition very clean & very comfortable. I particularly liked the common kitchen area which was always clean & I found very handy, There is also a coffee machine & you can load a small token attached to your keys with money for the machine. The drinks cost 0.60 Euro.
The Residenza is very well located & its is an easy walk to the main sites in Florence. The code for the door is easy to use & I always felt secure during my stay.
I found the service to be exceptional. I had been robbed when I was in Rome & was having problems accessing my funds. The staff at the Residenzia were extremely helpful & supportive. I hope to be able to visit Florence again & will definitely stay at the Residenzia della Signoria.

The place is perfectly located. The rooms have all little details a traveler needs. Even though the owner is not onsite all the time, he is available any time via email or via telephone. We loved staying there and would stay there again if we go back to Florence.

I booked this at short notice, mid-august and was ready to pay over the odds but didn't need to. This is really excellent value especially for both its location and its quality and spatiousness. Decent size double room comfortably accommodating usual bedroom suite. Spatious, clean, tiled, modern bathroom. Convenient access arrangements with entry code so no anxiety about meeting arrival times and check in. Feels like having your own flat as it's just a private residential doorway and up to the third floor where there is even basic kitchen facility if required. I was worried that being so close to piazza della signoria it may be very noisy but it is just off on a little sidestreet and so is very quiet.
can't fault it.
