    Everything was amazing! From the reception to the facilities we couldn't have been happier. The only small negative was the a/c, it was just too warm for 2 members of my family. I would stay there again without an hesitation.

    The air conditioning didn't properly cool the room.

    Great location and a fantastic little B&B. Very friendly staff and a wonderful complimentary welcome fruit basket and refreshment upon arrival.

    The shower was a little bit small for me, but I'm a big fella (6' 4"), otherwise no negatives. I would definitely stay again.

    Hotel prepared fruit for 1st night, I like it. Reception lady was very helpful. Parking service is available and convenient.

    Not so easy to find, there is one door on 1st floor with several hotel name on it. The guy who helped us for parking can not speak common English.

    Although the area around the station is a bit sketchy, this is a great location. The rooms were very nice - clean, well decorated, quiet (even in this noisy area). Short walks to all the sites. Rafaela was wonderful - hospitable and helpful, concerned for our wants and needs. Breakfast voucher for a charming cafe nearby. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

    Our hostess was very helpful and immediately gave us a map and told us how to get to the main sites in Florence. The room was very comfortable and we were given fresh fruit and refreshments on arrival. The shower had great water pressure. It was just what we needed for our one night stay

    Julia and Raffaela, the main receptionists, were exceptionally helpful; being new to Florence they enthusiastically gave us so much assistance: nothing was too much trouble. The room was serviced daily and was spotless. It's very near to the railway and bus stations, and within walking distance to the main sights of Florence.

    Location is very close to train station and main attractions. Room is very comfortable and clean and has a nice balcony. Our host, Rafaelle greeted us very well and made a great introduction on the city.

    They have an arrangement for Breakfast at a cafe outside the building however the food is not tasty.

    Well appointed rooms. Small "boutique" style accommodation affording the guest a positive feeling of exclusivity. So close to the railway station. Near the sites of Firenze.

    The street cafe providing breakfast was all that one could desire but,unfortunately,there were so many guests with vouchers from various hotels that there was a mad scramble to be served and no guarantee of finding a seat!

    We stayed at La Residenza Dell'Orafo from July 9 to July 15, 2014. I cannot say enough about the hospitality at La Residenza Dell'Orafo. We had three rooms booked for my family, my parents and my siblings. My sister was getting married in Tuscany and all the guests were staying in Florence for the few days before the wedding day. We had our two children with us. Ages 6 and 8. The place is very clean, very safe and very comfortable. A couple of days before the wedding, the staff placed a big bouquet of flowers and a bottle of Champaign in the bride’s room. On a later date, we found a bottle of Chianti (local red wine) with a thank you note in our room. The manager, Julia, will go out of her way to accommodate the guests. She spent at least an hour with me explaining and recommending different restaurants and places to visit. She also made calls to tour agencies and restaurants for me, and she did it gladly. Our stay was just wonderful. The location is very convenient being a two minute walk from the train/bus station. The outdoor market is a five-minute walk away. Don’t miss the indoor market. It is a great place to try different authentic foods. The second floor food court is also a must see and try. Florence itself is gorgeous, but I will stick to the B&B review. Free WiFi works great. This hotel is actually two hotels combined: La Residenza Dell'Orafo and Silver Feathers. Both hotels are on the first floor of the building (not street level). All rooms have balconies. Ours overlooked the street which was a great place to enjoy our coffee in the morning. Some people complain about noise in general in most hotels in Florence. That is silly because Florence is a metropolis with people roaming the streets at all hours. The sounds and noises are typical of such a setting. We did not mind the street noise at all. If you want solitude and silence, try staying in Tuscany. La Residenza Dell'Orafo is booked most of the time.

    Very small shower rooms in most of the rooms. Building elevator is approximately 2.5ft x 2.5ft. Luckily the hotel is on the first floor.
