    The woman who checked us in gave us good recommendations for local restaurants nearby. We enjoyed being in an area that was residential but was also within walking distance to Plaza Michelangelo. Visit Caffe L' Officina Ferrucci nearby for their pear and chocolate pastry and other delicacies.

    Bathroom was small and little space to put things on. Entrance to the property was a bit difficult to find when we arrived. No breakfast (which wasn't an issue for us). Might be a bit far for people wanting to see a lot of the tourist attractions (again this wasn't an issue for us as the parking was more of a priority). The residence is about a 25-30 min walk from the centre of Florence and you can also take the local buses although we did not try these.

    We were given a very large room next to the front entrance of the residence with a built in kitchenette. Ordinarily I would prefer a room further away but it worked well for us as it was convenient to bring our luggage to/from our car. Trust me - after a few times loading and unloading our car during our road trip, this was a blessing! There was also secure parking in front which was one of the important conditions for us as we did not feel comfortable with parking on the street and did not want to drive into or park in central Florence. The residence was conveniently located for Piazzale Michelangelo (a short but steep walk up a short cut) and stunning sunset views of Florence and Ponte Vecchio.

    The hostess Angelina was so friendly and helpful. Parking lot was convenient and very secure. Our room was big enough for 3 huge bags and the small kitchen was very good for mini dishes to cook. Good walking distance for Plazzale Michelangiolo. Little bit far from old town but it could be easier by getting public bus.

    An old house on a walking distance of the old town. Plenty of room, spacious bathroom, a balcony. Free, secure parking, quiet yard behind a fence. You can sleep with the open window. You can find a good Japanese restaurant KOKO under 500m towards the old town and a place for breakfast just next to it. Nice and friendly staff, complementary water. Great service. You forget that you're in the city.

    Beautiful old large house turned into apartments. Relatively easy to find, ample free secure parking, very large apartment decorated in keeping with the house's appearance but with all mod cons. Cleaners came in every day, 2 sets of double doors opening onto to two separate gardens. Very tranquil and secure. Excellent position to walk into Florence, 15 minutes walk to the magnificent view at Michelangelo Piazza and 15 minutes walk along the river to the centre of Florence. The staff very very friendly, spoke good English and very helpful in telling you about all the sites. All in all an excellent place to stay to see the sites of Florence.

    I like the location in a beautiful part of the city close to Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato although some may not like the 20 minute walk into the city centre.

    • Leisure trip

    We lived for one week in this charming place and it was a very good choice because we could forget about our rented car and visit Florence by foot, going to all the beautiful places, day and night, while returning to our cosy nest to get some rest, and then enjoy the mornings around an Italian coffee and assorted pastries bought from around the corner. We did need the car to see other places of interest around Florence or to go to a bigger shopping center on the outskirts, but it turned out to be mostly useless for seeing the city itself. Our host, Angela, was extremely helpful and gave us good advice on what to see and where to go. She offered to book museum tickets for us well in advance of our stay and we accepted; I realised how thoughtful that was only when I saw the formidable waiting lines at the Uffizi and the Academia, and this was in early May... The residence is a place of comfort and beauty, it is very clean and well maintained. It is stylish, kind of sets you into the mood of florentine Renaissance. Should you be a guest at Residence Michelangiolo, I wish you a stay as enjoyable as ours in this marvellous city.
