The building was easy to locate and we were greeted immediately by the lovely Raffella. She was extremely friendly and a great source of information/advice for Florence. She...

The street outside the property is quite busy but once you enter it is an oasis of calm. Excellent hospitality. Rooms are well decorated. Modern. Clean. I stayed on the side of the property...

We stayed here for 4 nights, we will surely recommend it to our friends. Suitable for family and friends. The staff is nice and helpful and willing to listen to our needs. Decent facility at a reasonable price. The light breakfast provided is great.

We stayed at La Residenza dell'Orafo when we wanted to be near the train station for our early train to Venice the next day. If you want to be close to the train station, I recommend this hotel. It was very clean, nice, and had great staff.

We could reach our B&B within 15 minutes leaving the train station, but turned the wrong way. When we eventually found La Residenza we were sweaty and tired. Not in any mood for nonsense. The rooms are on the first floor, but had a VERY SMALL elevator that could only fit one piece of luggage. But then we met RAFFAELLA!!...
