What a wonderful hotel! We stayed there with our two teenage daughters and they stayed in a Junior Suite while we asked for a Deluxe Suite. The rooms were very spacious and beautiful. We had a kitchenette and large bathroom. The water pressure was great and the rooms themselves were very comfortable. We were also not bothered by street noise. The location is also very good. When you walk out and turn to your left, you see the Duomo, which is only a 5-minute walk away. If instead, you turn to your right, you will see the Fontane dei Mostri Marini. On our last weekend, they set up a chocolate fair around the fountain. The fountain itself is in a courtyard and you go through the courtyard to get to the Museo degli Innocenti. Not only were the facilities great, but the staff was warm and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.

We enjoyed our stay in suite #22 on the second floor. It was huge which is nice for an EU hotel. The bathroom was amazing - large and great water pressure in the shower. I left a note for the maid requesting a softer pillow and she did so which I appreciated. The street has a number of restaurants/shops and is a five minute walk to the Duomo which you can see from the hotel. We would stay here again.

We had a deluxe suite on the second floor: big sleeping room, kitchen/diner (which we didn't use, but a big fridge is a bonus). Good bathroom. The Duomo is close (less than 5 minutes). The street from the suits to the Duomo has some restaurants, bakery, supermarket and even the Davinci museum, which was nice. Neighbourhood was quiet at night and felt really safe . Lots of possibilities for breakfast nearby.

Residence Hilda was a perfect accommodation in terms of value, comfort, staff support and location. The room I had (#32) was large and the bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked (had plenty of cooking utensils, a nice size refrigerator, and I think a microwave and stove, although I didn't cook. The bathroom was similarly large. The apartment was spotless. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Unless you need a gym or a restaurant, this is a perfect place to stay. The only thing that could be improved is the wifi could be a little faster.

Upon arriving at Residence Hilda we were treated with a smile and warm, friendly greeting. The staff was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The location was spot on and close to all attractions. Your also located near a grocery store which is also another added benefit. In regards to the rooms... clean, clean and very homely. I felt right at home with the suite. I slept in a comfortable bed and was treated daily to a nice, fresh, clean room. I highly recommend Residence Hilda. You wont be disappointed. This is a true gem in Florence. I stayed in many hotels in Italy and this by far is a 5 star!

We had booked a Junior Suite for 2 nights and we had an excellent stay! Here you are at the city center, near to all sightseeings and the room was extremly spacious and very beautiful. Value for money exceeded and should we come back to Florence, I will book the Residence Hilda for sure again.

We pulled our bags from SMN station over cobbled footpaths. Not so far but in retrospect, they were heavy and we are not so young! Advice, get a cab. We stayed for five nights. We were upgraded to a most spacious apartment overlooking the street. Double glazing obviates most of the noise except for that of the front door which we overlooked. I can not speak highly enough of the staff who were mostly young and whose English was more than equal to our needs. Restaurant bookings were made for us as was a hairdresser's appointment and a taxi on leaving. Incidentally, the hairdresser was prevailed upon to open up on his day off just for one of us! Good advice on places to eat and on accessing attractions was given. The apartment was spotless, the kitchenette useful and well equiped, and the wifi worked well, even across the road in the local cafe! There is nothing that I can fault except the banging front door which is something that can easily be fixed. RH is conveniently situated close to all the big Florentine attractions and provided us with a place of peace and refuge from the frantic crowded streets and piazzas.

Definitely recommend this place. The apartment was massive and the location of it is a stone throw from Duomo. Too good. If I come to Florence again, I am staying here again for sure. Staff attentive and efficient. Check in, check out was good too.

The staff is very welcoming, the rooms are cozy and comfortable and the suite is bigger then some apartments we have been in. The kitchen is fully equipped so if you. Red anything you don't have to worry. The noise from the street is really low and the bed was very comfortable. All in all a very good accommodation near everything you want to see in Florence.

Clean, roomy, modern, convenient - close to everything you need to see in Florence. Great cafe next door for your coffee. Beautiful FOH lady. Stayed up late for us to arrive, and was a warm welcome. We only stayed one night, as we booked a hotel around the corner. However, it was perfect and would have happily stayed there instead. Going back in may this year with my mum, and booking RH.
