Room - La Residenza dell'Orafo
La Residenza dell'Orafo is a newly renovated B&B in the heart of Florence. Our property has fancy and stylish rooms with a particular attention to details: each room has a name dedicated to precious stones (as for example Amber, Quarz, Amethist) and different colors to enjoy the sight and make our guests feel relaxed, after a daily city tour. Our aim is to make travellers to feel like at home so our guests have their own keys and they find in the room a fresh fruit basket, a welcome drink and a boiler to prepare their own hot tea or coffee. Our reception is close at night (and we leave an emergency number - just in case) but during the day the staff is at guests' disposal to give as all the information and assistance as needed.
Our staff perfectly know the city area and towns surrounding Florence so guests could have the best tips to live the Florentine experience as locals do. Don't hesitate to ask for!
Welcome to the heart of Florence! La Residenza dell'Orafo is located 2 minutes walking out from the Santa Maria Novella train station: surrounded by shops, restaurants and cafeterias. Other 2 minutes walking you find yourself in our folkloristic Mercato Centrale (The Central Market) where our grandmothers went to have their food&daily shopping 50 years ago and nowadays has become a coloured and tasty place to buy some food, wines, oils and why not..to taste our typical plates! Outside you can find souvenirs for all tastes and our best handcraft leather jackets, bags, hats. Less than 10 minutes walking you are in Duomo's area or facing the marvellous Church of Santa Maria Novella. Do you come to Florence for business? We are located 5 minutes walking from Fortezza da Basso or Palacongressi. Do you like to go for a morning run? At a few minutes distance you find our city-green-lung: the Cascine Park, where often are organized markets and festivals. In our neighborhood you'll find as many facilities as possbile to reach The Mall or other towns outside Florence, you can easily rent a bike or to buy something at the supermarket next to us.
