The residenza castiglioni was the perfect b& b for our two nights in Florence. Rooms was perfect, overlooking the bustling streets below, decor was very overwhelming with color and texture, but perfectly suited to Italian culture. perfect hosts with lovely continental breakfast. Put it on your list if visiting Florence!

Loved our 2 nights here. Our room was simply amazing. Huge, tall windows, beautiful furniture and very bright! Perfect for a family of 4. The breakfast is delicious - home made yogurt! It was the most substantial of 3 hotels we stayed at. And the staff are excellent - we needed bus tickets and we got them at the desk....

If you don't need a fancy hotel with a lot of typical hotel amenities, then this is a great option. A 5 minute walk from the train station and minutes from major attractions, this was a lovely, quiet option. The breakfast was very nice and the staff was friendly and very helpful. The room itself was by far the biggest...

We stayed for two nights at Residenza Castiglioni. The staff couldn't be nicer. Our room was amazingly clean. The bed was comfortable, the shower was great, and the bathroom amenities were some of the best. At night a locked gate, a locked door and your room door protect you from the outside world (although the area is pretty safe anyhow)....

Dear Cristoph, Thank you very much for your kind words, it’s really nice to have such a great appreciation from guests. Really hope to see you again very soon and happy you understand that sleeping in the heart of a city can imply some noise….but having Cathedral and Basilica San Lorenzo at a walking distance is worth of a sacrifice!...
