Residenza Oltrarno
Ranked #246 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Our family stayed at Residenza Oltrarno in October 2012. The apartment is huge and utterly charming with Italian antiques but modern amenities. The foyer of the building is magnificent and a circular staircase makes you feel like you are ascending to Italian royalty. It truly feels like a home with extremely large rooms with balconies overlooking the street from every room. Stefano was wonderful. Grocery stores are nearby and a short walk to the center of Florence enables you to be a tourist and relax at home as well. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The bedroom on the non-street side was a little quieter.

We visited this past July for a week, stayed at Residenza Oltrarno and loved it. Were there with 2 other people, tons of space for everyone, and the livingroom/ dining room was perfect for gathering and discussing the next day's activities. Stefano and Leonardo were excellent hosts, organizing a tour for us and providing little extras along the way such as calling cabs, etc. We were there to get married in Florence (fabulous!) and they even helped me find a place to get my hair done prior to the ceremony that was close by. Handy grocery store across the street, a good walk to the old part of town but nice to stay out of the super touristy areas, lots of eateries close by. The apartment was spacious, very clean, air conditioning in the bedrooms worked well which was appreciated during the super hot weather we had while we were there, and the numerous windows in the apartment helped a lot with air flow. If I had to choose any downside, the traffic is noisy outside but this could be said of a lot of places, Florence is a busy town. Would definitely stay again, good value for sure.

what a wonderfull apartment so spacious with all things you would need and near all amenities. There was plenty of tourist books to plan your days. Bus stop on your doorstep when you have walked enough and plenty restaurants round about. Supermarket 2min walk. Stefano was on hand with loads of local info and can get tickets for most things you want to see.We stayed for a week and it wasnt long enough we had a wonderful time. We are 6 mature ladies and we were very very comfortable there. Thank you very much Stefano and Leonardo. xx

We recently stayed here with two other couples and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were clean and spacious and worked very well for us. We took full advantage of the kitchen and dining area which made it very relaxing to come back to after a long day of site seeing. There is a great grocery store nearby so we were able to stock up. We were welcomed on arrival and Leonardo was very helpful with providing information for our days in Florence. He even went so far as to get our reservations for the museums. It was an easy walk to the historical center but there is also a bus quite close by if needed. The only issue we had was the parking. Although we did get a parking pass there is no private parking available so you take your chance finding a place nearby. Overall, everything was beyond our expectations and I would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: The two rooms towards the front had more traffic noise but all were very nice.

My friend and I spent in Residenza Oltrarno wonderful 6 days. It is a quite place with romantic atmosphere. Rooms are spacious, light and beautifully decorated. The house is away from crowded with tourist central streets but at the same time is in the walking distance from many places of interest (20-30 min). Rooms were always clean; hosts were always friendly and helpful. We would like to recommend this place to everyone.

Thank you Stefano and Leonardo for our enjoyable stay in Florence!
