We stayed at La Residenza dell'Orafo when we wanted to be near the train station for our early train to Venice the next day. If you want to be close to the train station, I recommend this hotel. It was very clean, nice, and had great staff.

We could reach our B&B within 15 minutes leaving the train station, but turned the wrong way. When we eventually found La Residenza we were sweaty and tired. Not in any mood for nonsense. The rooms are on the first floor, but had a VERY SMALL elevator that could only fit one piece of luggage. But then we met RAFFAELLA!!...

Great location near Railway - 2 minutes away - on a very busy street but very quiet accommodation. Very comfortable, air conditioning, modern bath, TV, WiFi. Very friendly staff, nothing a problem.

The location of this B&B is fantastic - easily walkable to all sorts of sights in Florence. The rooms are modern, clean, and the staff very helpful. Our room was on the front of the building, but noise from the street was not an issue, and the temperature controls were just fine. The bed was comfortable. Wifi was also available....
