Lovely hotel apartments with beds and sofa bed. Great location just 600m from the Duomo, round the corner from the Academia. All very comfortable and in perfect condition. Concierge very helpful. Breakfast in local cafe is superb.

This residence hotel is great. Close to the Duomo and everything in the city walkable. The apartment was just as pictured on their site and very clean with daily service. Staff very efficient and helpful; special thanks to Marzanna who went over and above. I was traveling as a single woman and this is the perfect safe, convenient hotel. I fulfilled a 20 year wish to spend adequate time in Florence to enjoy all of its jewels.

We enjoyed our stay at residence hilda and even booked in for another night as it’s so central (about 2 mins from the duomo) and the rooms are really modern and spacious. The staff were extremely helpful and I would definitely recommend this place!

Apartments perfectly located and in perfect condition. Parking in front of the door. 100% satisfaction guaranteed. 100m to Piazza Duomo, all direct around. Apartments completely new, personal very helpful and nice.

We stayed at Residence Hilda, based on other TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed in the least. Just a 3 minute walk from the Accademia, 5 minute from the Duomo, 10 from the Uffizzi, 15 from the Ponte Vecchio the location can't be beat. Once we learned our way around, it was very easy to get back there from being wherever we went during the day. All the restaurant options you could want within a 15 minute walking radius, and several just down the street within a couple of blocks that were pretty good. Now the apartment... Beautifully done in contemporary design, very comfortable bed and excellent bathroom facilities, all cleaned spotlessly every day. We used the kitchen daily to make breakfast, and they do, in fact, do the dishes for you (we did leave them in the sink to soak in suds). There's a small grocery a couple of doors down, so it was very convenient to buy a few things for that purpose and restock when needed, and there's everything you might need to make a nice meal in the well equipped kitchen. The living room sofa pulls out into a bed (we didn't use it, but they told us it did), so it's a good place for kids, too. Light from plenty of windows and black out drapes gave us all the control over the atmosphere of the room. Our room overlooked the street, but there was not much street noise at night or early morning, and we were certainly never bothered by it. The staff at Residence Hilda was great. Extremely helpful in answering our questions, recommending restaurants and making reservations for us. We engaged 4 different staff members at the desk, and they were all very nice and helpful - we felt really welcome there. We can't recommend this place highly enough, and wouldn't even think of another place if we return to Florence.

Residence Hilda exceeded our expectations in every way for a two week stay.. Our deluxe suite was spacious and very well designed and equipped. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could have needed, with ample dishes, glassware and cutlery, and even olive oil and high quality paper napkins. The location is perfect, near, but not too close to, the Duomo and Accademia, Mercato Centrale and other museums. The concierge staff is outstanding and very helpful, with everything from restaurant suggestions to making advance museum bookings where need. The hotel has only 12 rooms, so is quiet and much less hectic than a large commercial hotel. Small touches, like orchids in the room, are very classy. Would return to Residence Hilda without hesitation. Highly recommended.

What a great place- and I do not say this lightly! Spotlessly clean, next to the Duomo but very quiet, large comfortable apartments with everything you need for your stay. Friendly and (extremely) professional staff - the cleaning ladies are a real hoot. I will definitely be returning!

This year we spent 10 nights in Florence during Christmas and new year eve and we decided to stay in a Hotel Residence due the large amount of nights. We made the best choice possible, that was to Stay at The Residence Hilda. Real modern and premium apartment from the bath towels up to the kitchen utensil. The service was close to perfection, from the people at the reception to the ladies of the cleaning service. The location it is perfect, the moderness of the property just great and we love our stay at this Residence 5 stars plus.

We loved this hotel! It's got a great location, it's clean, spacious & quaint and the staff are friendly & knowledgeable. The room was spacious and well equipped and clean and met all of our expectations. The hotel has a great location, close to il Duomo and the Acadamia as well as restaurants and shops. The staff had some great recommendations in terms of restaurants and directions and we highly recommend this hotel

Stayed here for three nights. After small hotel rooms in Venice and Bologna, this was a welcome space. It is an apartment style hotel with a kitchenette. Fully stocked with dishes and even an Italian coffee maker with coffee as well as tea and instant coffee. Big bottle of still drinking water in the fridge too. Location is top notch - 5 minutes to Duomo and Accademia. Lots of small restaurants and bars nearby. The breakfast at an adjacent osteria is underwhelming. No need to pay for it. Otherwise, totally pleased.
