Rooms

The 12 guest rooms at Residenza dei Pucci Hotel Florence are individually decorated and furnished, some with classic black-and-white details, while others feature sunny yellow or red accents.

Features

Housed in a 19th century building just steps from the Duomo lies the Residenza dei Pucci Hotel Florence, a true boutique hotel whose intimacy is a welcome departure from the bustling city that surrounds it.

Fantastic Value & Location

You will not find a better value in this area. The location was perfect: a couple of blocks from the Duomo and right in the heart of the city. We stayed for 10 nights at this B&B. Our room was spacious, clean, and well-appointed, with a sizable in-room bathroom, which was surprising, especially compared with other experiences in Europe. We felt very much at home. Being so centrally located, it was easy for us to stop by a couple times a day to use the bathrooms (public ones can be dicey), drop off purchases, take an afternoon siesta from the heat, and shower before dinner. The staff, especially Marina at the main office, were sweet and helpful. The included continental breakfast featured coffee (American-style, but wonderfully strong and rich), juice, pastries, toast, and yogurt--but no fresh fruit. (You can easily get some at the Mercato Centrale and keep that in your room.) The breakfast spread is on the second floor, and it is advisable to fix a tray and eat in your room, as the dining area is too small to really eat there. If you decide to eat at the table, where the food is laid out, you will be in everyone else's way, and they will have to reach over you to get food. Don't be a jerk. (Unfortunately, we encountered too many of those as we were fixing our morning trays, but it wasn't the B&B's fault.) Things to note: * Shampoo and soap are the only provided toiletries (no lotion, etc.). * There are only body and hand towels, no wash clothes. * If you are a light sleeper, this might not be good for you, since you are in the heart of the city and it can get loud outside. * There is air-conditioning, but it's lovely to sleep with the windows open. Just beware that window screens don't seem to exist in Florence and there are mosquitoes in summer. The rooms do come equipped with plug-in insect repellent, but it's not enough to keep them completely at bay. *This is not a "family" establishment, in that there is breakable, antique furniture and it's quiet and tranquil here. Best for couples or families with teenage children.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

If you want a quality leather bag avoid shopping for one in the stalls of the Mercato San Lorenzo--most of that is either fake leather or leather imported from South America or other non-European locations and sold by non-Italians. Fine for a cheap day bag, but if you're looking for quality, handmade Italian leather goods, visit the Scuola del Cuoio (Leather School) at Santa Croce. Bags are their specialty, but they also make belts, jackets, desk sets, wallets, coin bags, etc.

Mix-up that turned out OK.

I had a mixup with my dates and, on the same day I made my four day reservation, I cancelled it, and made a new reservation for five days. The staff saw my five day reservation and thought it was the reservation I cancelled, so therefore they didn't have a room for me for all five days. Although that was stressful, they were very accommodating and found another hotel for me, after I stayed the first night. They also paid my tourist tax for that time. The room was very nice and clean. It was minutes away from the Duomo and close to the train station. Please make sure you confirm your registration with them before you go!! I still would recommend them because they were able to fix the situation.

Perfect stay at la Residenzia!

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for only one night b/c we had to depart to another part of Italy the next day but it was wonderful. We had a nice large room that was VERY clean and quiet (even though it faced the street). The wi-fi worked fine in their office but not in the room. Just steps from the Duomo made it a wonderful location. Florence is a very walkable city so all of the sights are close to one another. The staff was kind and helpful and gave us recommendations for things to do/where to eat. Breakfast was a normal Italian breakfast (toast, pastries, cafe, yogurt, etc.). And it was very affordable. We would definitely return to his hotel!

The 1st floor of hotel entry had a large water cooler, so save a plastic bottle and you can refill yours there.

Nice room, terrible start

Well, the night we checked in, the person at the desk was supposed to be there until 8pm (which is what is listed on their website). Unfortunately, someone was sick, and the covering person only wanted to stay until 6pm. We were not notified of this, but still managed to arrive at 5:40. When we did get there, there was a note on the door addressed to us which gave an italian phone number to call for a code to get into the B&B, and stating they were leaving at 6 for the day (even though it was clearly before that). I have no idea when the person actually left, but found the note on the door to be very upsetting, as we clearly don't have an italian phone to call with! Luckily, someone was coming out and let us in, where we found a second note on the door which told us where they'd hidden the key to our room. This in general seemed a little shady, as anyone trying to get in could have used our room had they found that note on the second door. When we did get into our room, we settled, got some dinner, and then came back around 11pm to get ready for bed. We went to brush our teeth only to find there was NO water in the room (none in the shower, sink, or toilet). There was no one to call to try and help us. The next day we stoopped in the main office and the lady was apologetic, and gave us free internet service (which didn't really work well). The room was decorated very nice, was spacious, and bathroom very clean and nice sized. The breakfast is pretty good, and it's nice to eat with other travelers in the morning. Overall, had we not had such a rocky start, we would have loved this place. It's in a great central location and not far from the train station.

If you're going to buy gold in Florence, don't get it on the bridge. We found this lovely family owned place called Gioielleria "Saccardi" di A. Silvana Stefani on via por S. Maria 58R. We couldn't spend a lot, and they were super patient with us, found things in our price range, and even gave us a deal because we bought more than one pendant.

Warm B&B in a great location

Cozy bed & breakfast just a few blocks from the Duomo, yet on a quiet, peaceful street. Short 10 minute walk to the train station. So the location was great. Hardest part of our stay was hauling the luggage up the stairs since there is no elevator, but other than that no complaints. Staff was really helpful in getting us settled in. Rooms were nice and clean.
