We returned to a one-week stay at the Residence Hilda last May, where we had already been in November 2010. This time we had an apartment in the upper floor. Although windows are not sound-proof, the location facing the back street ensures sufficient quietness most of the time.
Bed comfort is alright. The air conditioning system is not quite modern and rather noisy, although we didn´t use it this time. The appartment is light and large ( about 50 square meters ), clean, and disposes of sufficient kitchen equipment. We were pleased to find one bottle of Chianti, water and slippers at our arrival. I found WiFi (free) performance better than the last time. Location is excellent, a few minutes from the Academia and from the Duomo. The staff is polite and the fact that reception is not occupied all of the time poses no major problem - Signora Valentina was kind enough to send me an email as she noticed that our plane was delayed.
Residence Hilda is surely a perfect choice for those looking for a short-term home in Florence.

Room Tip: Apartments facing the back street (via dei Fibbiai) are quieter.

We stayed at residence Hilda for 5 nights in late May 2012. We stayed in the top floor apartment Room 41. The apartment was spacious and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable with very good quality linen and pillows.

The staff very very helpful and the breakfast voucher system to the OK Bar Cafe was great. The food there was very tasty and very reasonably priced. We also went to a local restaurant 'Trattoria Toscana' on the staff suggestion and it was excellent.

The location of Residence Hilda is so good -close to the Duomo, local markets, Accademia and most other attractions are easy walking distance.

We would love to return to Florence and Residence Hilda would definately be our choice of place to stay

We arrived on Sunday April 15 for eight days, and were met by staff and shown to our room, really more of an apartment, very spacious. We were in Room 30 on the third floor, front side, well above Via dei Servi, which has very little vehicle traffic. The room was great, very nice shower, excellent bathroom counter space (important for my wife), the living room-kitchen-dining area was well-equipped for us to make tea and enjoy cereals with milk for breakfast.

The location was perfect for us, right on the C1 bus line headed to the Uffizi Gallery, and a short 2-block walk from Piazza S. Marco with many busses (including #7 to Fiesole) and the Accademia Ristorante, our favorite during our visit. La Cucina del Garga was also excelent, but a few more blocks to walk.

The Galleria 'dell Accademia was a block away, and no waiting given we had made advance reservations (it was Culture Week, meaning free admission for all, and there were long lines, but for 4 Euro for a timed reservation, we were admiteed promptly).

There is a good laundromat directly opposite the front entrance, a Wash & Dry Lavarapido. I took four bags over plus the Rick Steve’s Rome guidebook to read befre getting to Rome. There were a number of people loading machines, and I grabbed four of the ten by dumping each bag into a machine, then got soap and tokens, and got them going. I sat down to read, but where was my book? I ran back up to our apartment, but the Rome book was nowhere to be found there. Fortunately the book debris did not harm the load of clothes other than lots of lint.

The lady at the front desk directed me to the Paperback Exchange bookshop near the Duomo, and I was able to replace the book.

The only negative was occasional street noise late at night from noisy pedestrians passing by and the street-cleaning vehicles that worked frequently.

Residence Hilda would be our first choice on our next visit to Florence.

We stayed at Residence Hilda for three night in May and had a great experience! The staff was very friendly and gave us lots of nice suggestions for restaurants, etc. Room was large and service was good. It is most suitable for family of 3-4. Location was wonderful - just 2 min walk to the Duomo and short walk to most restaurants.

We absolutely loved this little hotel. The rooms are extremely spacious, well furnished and with all the comforts. The beds are great, the pillows soft and wonderful. This hotel is quite near the Duomo so is only a short walk to everywhere, the markets are only 2 blocks away and we enjoyed the walking to the Ponte Vecchio etc. We had a delux suite which had a large kitchen area, a large lounge area that had a good size fold out bed, and a large bedroom and walk in robe. We booked two rooms but really we could have all fitted quite comfortably in the one room with the two sleeping areas. This is not the cheapest hotel each night, but it is good value considering the quality of the rooms and its location. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Thank you.

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms on the front side of the building as those on the rear seem to be very noisy...
