“beautiful villa, but too far from center”
Reviewed 24 November 2011

Having the huge front gates to the Vila open upon our arrival is somethg we will never
Forget. This is the most private, quite, special place we've been. You get the "key to the house
As well as the front gate, which makes you feel like the diplomat the street suggests. The room and kichenette were immaculate. The wi-fi was great and allowed us to stay in touch, make our next reservation and just go on line with ease (we had a new tablet with us and it worked great

However, with all that, it does have some big downsides...it's really too far from all the sights. If you're like us, you like to get a lot in in one day. If you stay here, once you are out - that's it - you are out and not visiting your room again until you're day is over. No going back to the room to rest, refresh, nap, etc..

The other two problems are: no breakfast (which I did not think was going to be a problem) which turned out to be a huge problem. This is not the U.S., there are no places close by to get a bacon and egg sandwich - that is unheard of here. So going forward, I would always pick a hotel with breakfast when visiting Italy.

The next problem; no shower, bathtub with hand-held water wand in addition to regular bath choice. Let's just say it didn't work out for me (long hair).

We spent three days of our Italian honeymoon at the Residence Michelangiolo. It came highly recommended to us by a friend who runs travel and educational programs throughout Italy. We were so pleased with this place.The residence is in a neighborhood across the Arno River from Florence. We enjoyed being away from the crowds, yet a very easy and scenic walk away from all the major attractions. Our room was large by any standards with high celings, a small kitchenette and a romantic double person bath tub. Angela was extremely helpful, in every way, to support our comfort and the touring of Florence. She ordered tickets to attreactions in advance for us and made wonderful recommendations for restaurants etc to us. I would recommend The Residence to anyone . My only reservation is if I recommend this perfect place to too many people, we will not be able to get a reservation the next time we are in Florence..

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a large , double bath tub. We had a room on the front of the house and noise was...

We had a very pleasant stay in Residence Michelangiolo. The large airy room was beautiful. The location of this hotel is ideal, being close to the main sights of Firenze, but distant enough to be away from the "over touristed" areas. The service was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Travel advice provide was excellent.

We will be back. Highly recommended.

Warm welcome and great space with quiet surroundings. Angela gave us a genuinely warm welcome and made us feel at home.

We enjoyed our stay in Residence Michelangiolo. A very warm and friendly welcome. The Airco. was appreciated very much. Enjoyed the fact that the Ponte Vecchio was just 15 minutes walk away.
Location could not have been better for us. Thank you for the various recommendations - excellent!
