“Lovely and charming”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

We stayed here in early October- the accomodations were excellent, the rooms beautifully-restored and spotless, and included a lovely breakfast. Cristian and the staff were very helpful, professional, and gracious hosts. This is what a B&B is meant to be. We will recommend and hopefully return. Three Sisters.

There is also a room with a view on the Duomo side of Florence; the lovely 'studio suite' at the top with a picture window overlooking San Lorenzo's dome and Tuscany beyond. Despite being bang in the centre of Florence it cost only the same as our tiny MFI-clad room in out-of-season Cinque Terre the night before! And they DO take credit cards.
One small negative: we couldn't find CNN or any other English-language channel on the TV to pick up the day's news (this may have been our own ineptitude)

Excellent position just 5 mins walk from the train station. Five minutes in the other direction and you are in Duomo Square. Very friendly and helpful staff. Bedroom and bathroom a good size, clean and comfortatble ( do use the mosquito plugs which are provided ) Good breakfast which is now served in reception and not a bar downstairs. The only criticism I have is that the air-conditioning didn't work very well, but overall....very good.

Room Tip: Ask for one where the air-con works !!!

It was lovely- arriving early, we could stow our bags until check in and tour Florence unencumbered. Clean, inviting 2nd. floor rooms; friendly, accommodating staff...always service with a smile. Very helpful re phone calls & reservations for dinner, etc.
I look forward to returning to this charming and welcoming hotel.

Have to say, me and my girlfriend were amazed by this place. Building is stunning, personnel very helpful with good recommendations for food etc (admittedly not the best English but very good by Italian standards), it was very affordable and last the breakfast served in bed gave the final five star touch. I would take this over any average boring chain hotel place. Highly recommended. We slept literally below angels!

Reviewed 19 October 2010

We stayed a Residenza Castiglioni for 4 days in September 2010. It is an easy walk from the train station and very close to the Duomo. The room was charming and spotless. The owner was at the desk and does not speak English, but that wasn't an issue. The only down side is that there are dumpsters on the street below the windows and they were emptied during the night which made it very noisy. Breakfast was a coupon for the restaurant downstairs and was juice, yougurt, croissant, and coffee.
