We had a great stay here during our stay in Florence. The location, room, food and service were excellent. The family run business is a wonderful hotel. Very personal and helpful service. We would definitely stay again

Spending 3 nights in Florence city center in a very nice appartment-style room for a very good price! Not so good breakfast, but clean room and nice staff. Walking distance to all attractions and steps away from train station.

Our family of 4 stayed at Residence La Contessina for 3 days during our recent holiday. We were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and cleanliness of the rooms. Also, the location is just around the corner from the train station and in easy walking distance to many restaurants and things to see. Very enjoyable stay.

Great place. A two minute stroll from the main train station and not far from everything else worth seeing (Bologna isn't a hard city to walk around anyways). The room was truly massive, but I guess with the (optional) self-catering option it makes sense. There is a dinner table, kitchen etc. The Mafia-style painting in my room made me laugh,...

Quaint family run apartments/hotel. Very efficient, clean, well established and nearby heart of Florence (Duomo, Central market, Churches, Babistry). All within a few minutes walking distance. Prices are reasonable, same family run cafe and restaurant next door.

Disappointed with this place. The room was nice and clean, but the cigarette smell in the courtyard was overwhelming and off putting. I picked this place as I wanted a kitchen for my 5 night stay.

We stayed here last year in September and loved the place, returned this year and were disappointed. The La Contessina is in a terrific location, the rooms are comfortable, quiet and reasonably clean. Part of our disappointment was our ability to compare the service from last year to this. A much better level of service than we received this year...

Really pleasant room between train station and the centre of Florence. Really convenient for exploring this beautiful city, but far enough away from the crowds of tourists. Our room was right above the street, but we were never disturbed. Loved the breakfast provided by the adjacent restaurant. Great stay, thanks very much!
