“Beautiful Grounds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2010

Turning up you see a beautiful stately home-esque house.. you are then shown to your own little gite.. which was so quaint!!
Sorrounded by trees and flowers it really is a relaxing and tranquil place.. being self catered is great you have you own kitchen and there's a supermarket 5/10mins walk down the road (this will actually save you money!!)
Just a 15minute walk into the centre of Florence.. or jump on a bus and be there in 5!

Very helpful staff who gave us tips and short cuts! and helped us out when we had a night train but had to check out at 10am. Great place to stay in a beautiful area!

What a pleasure finding a little gem like Residence I Colli. We arrived by car on a Saturday morning a little bit too early for check in. Staff did everything to get our rooms ready for us. In the meantime Carlo - the owner and a film maker gave us a rundown on the history of the place .
We had 2 studios , which were perfect for our 4 night stay in Florence.
Residence I Colli is located just behind the Boboli Gardens and it takes about 15 minutes to walk to the Ponte Vecchio.
Free car parking off the street behind security gates was a big bonus.
Only thing missing in the rooms was a toaster - but I guess the Italiens are not into toast and vegimite in the morning

Although we had booked for 2 nights 3 months in advance we were put into the owner's brother's rooms with his belongings still in place. Cupboards had been hastily taped with masking tape so that we could not access them, the kitchen was filthy with no provision for even boiling water (we used one of the cleanest saucepans) for coffee/tea. No hanging space provided for clothing, old used soap in a grotty bathroom etc etc. The arrogance of the owner when a complaint was made was astounding!!!

We stayed in Apartment 2 at “ Residence I Colli”, very close to Porta Romana and next to Giardino Boboli. Just a short bus ride ( 3 buses 37, 36 ,11) to the center of Florence (about 4 stops ) or a 15 minute walk to Uffizi. Lovely residential area (so not many bars, but a small supermarket, Tobacco shop and Pizzeria), Large old villa with high ceilings and small reception were Samantha has worked there for 3 years and is lovely with excellent English.
[--] We booked via need a hotel and paid £130 (price for the 2 of us not per person ) for 3 nights stay for a large double room , TV ,Large bath room with bath and shower etc ( & Hairdryer) , small kitchen with cooking area and dinning table. Well equipped we made cooked English breakfast each day after a long lie in (as it was so quiet!) Our room was ground floor and had window onto the garden. The place also has cottages in the grounds. Very good for families I would think.
While in Florence try the small JOLLY bar in the corner of the Santa Crook square for a small sandwich and a drink. Also Michael Collins pub near the Piazza Spiangla
