B&B Residenza della Signoria
Ranked #60 of 657 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2012

Not sure how to describe this place. It is on part of the third floor of a mixed use building with strict access and security. Not exactly a hotel. It is a B&B with NO breakfast.

Stefano is a very helpful and friendly proprietor. Makes the stay very personal. The rooms are basic, but fairly large and well maintained. It is very well located and only a short walk from just about everything. If you want a low-key, good experience in a wonderful city, stay here.

Great accomodation in a very central location - easy walk to all the main sights.
Clean and hospitable. Small and quiet, staff only on hand in the morning, so you need to follow the instructions to get in when you first arrive.
Great views from the window of the street, so you can people watch, and round the corner from Piazza della Republica, so could hear the music of the street performers with the window open. Small kitchen for the use of guests and great little coffee shop/wine bar next door where you can get breakfast.

The B&B Residenza della Signoria is right in the hart of everything you will want to see in Florence. Our room had a spectacular view of the Dome of Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. Our host Stefano went out of his way to make sure we knew were we were going and highlights all the sight on out map. A great value and any price.

I stayed in this B&B (“B&B” is slightly misleading as there was no breakfast) for three nights in January 2012. It was probably the best accommodation I have come across in Florence in terms of location and value for money. I paid 59 euros per night (but do remember that it was January). The stay was very pleasant, and I can’t think of anything that I was not happy with, really. The central location was perfect (I don’t know if it would be noisy in summer but in January it was not), and there was a supermarket to the left of the entrance of the building, which I found very convenient. I didn’t watch TV (so Italian TV was not a problem) as I spent most of the time surfing the internet using the free wifi. Heating was satisfactory (it was quite cold outside in the morning/at night). Some reviewers here mentioned the lack of staff at the place in afternoon/ evening but that did not bother me. The instruction on how to get in was very clear in the email that the hotel sent to me, and anyways I arrived before noon.

It had never occurred to me that the SMN train station was not that “centrally located” until I stayed in this place. For me the walk to the station took about 10 minutes, and it was pleasant and easy (when I had no luggage).

All in all a very nice experience. I will book this hotel again if the price is right.

I booked this little hotel based on location and it is a very good one - just a few blocks from the Uffuzi and Duomo, although they don't have breakfast on-site, they do have a deal with the delicious bakery next door for a reasonable breakfast, 3.50 euros. Stefano took over from the previous owners and he was quite helpful. When my child was ill he offered the room even though we had already checked out, if he needed to take a nap before we left Florence. The room itself was clean and spacious for three people. Good shower. Only minor quibble was that the tv was all in italian, but it's nice to unplug anyway. The towels looked funny but they actually were quite absorbent. The kitchen was also useful for preparing snacks and the room had a little table and chairs. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Number 7 seems to have a view of the Duomo.
