The location is great! I had a small double room for one person which worked very well and functioned perfectly. The staff could not be more accommodating in giving maps, directions and things to do. A welcome fruit basket for my extended stay was a nice touch!

We had a triple and the bed was a little short for my adult son. There was a window and shutter system which effectively blocked all outside noise, but if you wanted the windows open the streets below were very noisy.
The lady who checked us in couldn't have been nicer. She raised this from what could have been a mediocre hotel to a nice place to stay. Her recommendations for food and sights were very good and it was easy to see she was proud of her city as she explained them to us. The room was clean and there were a nice collection of amenities for our arrival.

A softer bed and better quality blanket and bedsheets provided will give this B&B 10/10. Difficult to find the location of the B&B as the signs are not obvious
Stayed 2 nights on 11th & 12th April 2015. Upon check in, I was given a map of florence and was told the places of interest to visit & how to get there. Good introduction to the florence. Really useful! Plus there's a supermarket right next to the B&B where u get daily necessities which was very useful to me as the airline lost my luggage upon arrival in Florence. Breakfast was at a nearby cafe, which was pretty decent. Cafe staff was friendly too. :) The reception at the B&B was really super helpful and nice. Room was quite spacious with clean toilet and basic stuff like packets of shampoo, body lotion toothbrush, toothpaste and sets of small and big towels were provided. There were free fruits, tea and bottled water too. Really impressed with the hospitality of this B&B. There was aircon in the room and lots of TV channels as well. Housekeeping was good too.

we asked for a quiet room, which we got, and there was certainly very little external noise. However, the noise from fans, showers, toilets from other rooms was a constant irritation
the location was very good, there were lots of restaurants nearby. Everything was within walking distance

Absolutely nothing. Everything was perfect.
Rafaella was such a treasure. She was efficient, sweet and helpful. The rooms were homey and comfortable.

Nothing to say.
The personal touch was very much appreciated. The fact that Guilia took time to advise us of the places to visit and which transport to use was good. Best of all, she did so with a genuine smile!!

Great location near everything. The room was lovely and we had one of the most comfortable beds ever. And our hostess Raphalla (hope I spelled it right) was fantastic!

La Residencia dell´Orato is situated a few meters from the railway station so if you are taking a train, is very convenient. The hotel is five minutes from downtown where are the main atractions of Firenze. Very clean and confortable. A bit difficult to find it because it is on the first floor of a build which one does not seems to be an hotel. Reception is closed at 7:00 PM so it is not possible to do a later check-in.

The welcome fruit basket n complimentary drinks. Hospitable staff. One of them took the initiative to recommend places to visit. Because of her recommendation, we were able to have a picturesque view of the city of Florence from Piazzale Michelangelo.

Wifi works when we first arrived. On the second day we tried to log in with a different device it doesnt work but the first 2 device which we logged in originally when we first arrive still work. We were only there for 2 nights so didnt bother to go to hostess to ask how to get it to work. It didnt bother us.
My mother who's from Thailand and is 55 years old. She liked it. The room is large, clean and relatively new. Location is very convenient. You get breakfast vouchers for you to go a cafe which is located 2 short blocks away from the hotel. The hotel has elevator so helped with moving big luggage up a great deal. Tv works, air conditioning works. Overall very happy. The hostess was helpful. Helped us go through the map on where to go and highlighting in different colors for different purpose i.e. historical sites, shopping etc. All in all very pleased.

We checked in later than advised which caused trouble for the one manning the check in. We did not expect the heavy traffic travelling to Florence. Juliet was very warm, despite the hassle caused as she had to wait for us beyond the check in time. One should take note that in b&bs, check in time follows a schedule (unlike hotels)
The rooms, bed and decors are all so quaint and cozy while the fixtures are modern. Both Juliet and Rafaela are so warm and helpful. Breakfast at the appointed cafe was very good, especially the pastries.

Everything was just great. Very nice, clean and cosy room. Reasonable size and beautifully decorated. Staff were all very helpful. And most importantly the location was perfect!

The location is perfect. They offer free fruit and water. It was nice. Also it was raining and we don't have umbrella. She gave us her umbrellas. It was kind

Bed a little hard but that is personal preference! Everything else was excellent!

There was a streetlight bright as the sun right in front of our window that was on all night. Suggest that they consider adding blackout curtains. Street outside a bit noisy but that's to be expected since they are located right in the middle of things.
The two ladies who run the place are extremely friendly and helpful. The whole establishment only has a few rooms and feels like a cozy bed and breakfast while still being very professionally run. Spacious room with modern decor. There is a bathroom you can use after checkout and you can leave luggage with them until 7pm when reception and the doors close. Fruit basket which they refilled. Good breakfast which was provided at a local cafe nearby. Supermarket and restaurants on the same block. 5 minutes from the train station.
