Fantastic location!

4.4 on October 18, 2015

You can't beat the location - 6 mins from the Florence MSN station and less than 5 mins walk to Piazza San Lorenzo! As Florence is such a compact town, you can practically walk to all the major attractions, eg. the Duomo is another 5 mins walk from San Lorenzo. Veronica is a wonderful and helpful host and provide us with all the tips of where to go for site-seeing and lunch/dinner. Our on-suite room is clean and tidy. There is a communal kitchen and terrace for those who like to cook. The amenities are exactly as advertised. I highly recommend this place.

Amazing stay

Had an amazing time staying at Residence Martin B&B. The room was very clean and comfortable. When I arrived, Veronica, who's such a sweetheart, warmly welcomed me and even gave me a quick tour about the place and Florence! The place itself is very convenient because everything's near. I really loved staying there and I'll surely stay there again when I visit Florence in the future!

The Residence Martin B&B is amazing. You are very close to everything and as central as you can get. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hostess is probably the best you can come by. They get you situated and give you a good understanding of how to get everywhere. We asked questions every day and they were more than helpful. It was really like staying with an old friend. We loved this place and will be back. You cannot find a better place for the value you get here. Shopping, museums, markets, sight-seeing, everything is within a quick walk. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely B&B!!!!

Nycolas and Veronica was a great host! The place is very close to the Florence central station. It is within walking distance to the Duomo, the ponte vecchio, basically it is in the heart of Florence. Veronica was extremely helpful. She introduced us to all the best spots in Florence and Tuscany. Nycolas, her husband is the chef of Trattoria Nerone; a great place to eat local florentine cuisine. We enjoyed coming to the apartment after a long day of traveling around the city and beyond. The place was very accommodating, quiet, and the room was spacious! We recommend staying at Residence Martin. Thank you for your hospitality!

Wonderful B&B

5 on April 11, 2012

We loved Florence and had a wonderful stay at the Martin residence.. The location was only a short walk (5 minutes) from the train station, and very close to the major tourist sights in Florence. Veronica was the sweetest, most wonderful host ever and gave us tips on places to eat (from dinner to pizza to gelato and other great places we wouldn't have known on our own) We followed her advice and had a wonderful experience. For us Veronica is definitely One of the BEST hostesses in our monthlong trip across Europe! The room was very spacious and clean, and although the bathrooms are "shared", they were really very nice: for four suites, there are two full bathrooms with locking doors. The rooms were stocked with large bath towels and the bathrooms had soap and shampoo, which was very convenient. Breakfast is at a cafe next door, and is very good. The B&B is right next to the San Lorenzo market, with leather goods, t-shirts, and other trinkets, as well as a covered market with food sellers. If you're looking for a monastic setting this is not it. It is right in the heart of the activity, but once you get up to the apartment it's quite quiet. It also has a beautiful covered terrace which was great to relax on and have some wine after a long day of sightseeing. There is also a kitchen and fridge, which came in handy if you get tired of eating out for every meal of the day. We would definitely recommend Residence Martin to anyone!

Amazing Florence B&B!

This B&B was beyond what I could expect for my first visit to Florence. Veronica and Nycolas were the most hospitable and caring hosts I have ever met. They were there to welcome me and provide me with many tips on the city through out my stay. It was so clean and conveniently located in the heart of Florence near many incredible tourist attractions. Excellent value and they provided a beautiful "comfort of home" feeling there. Do not miss out if you are looking for a warm, cozy "Firenze" vibe. Anita

Great Location! Ecellant Hosts!

Nycolas and Veronica are excellant hosts. Everything was more than I expected. The rooms were clean and pleasant. Upon my arrival Veronica spent time explaining the city and what cities I could visit on daytrips (and the best way to get there!) with the amount of time I had in the city. Her suggestions were priceless. Nycolas is a chef and eating at the restaurant is a treat! Thank you for making my stay in Florence a big success.

This B&B was in the best location ever and was close enough to walk everywhere. Our hostess was absolutely AMAZING! She took the time to explain the entire city to us, she gave us a ton of recommendations and was available to help us with everything. She even helped us with my toddler when he got sick! If we ever come back to Florence, we will definitely stay here again. Jenell, Rob & Benjamin

amazing hospitality

Nycolas and Veronica were the sweetest hosts and did everything to ensure we had all we needed. Veronica identified Florence's key points of interest within walking distance, on a tourist map she provided for us. While breakfast is included, we used the kitchen to make occasional meals, and had everything we needed to do so. We dined on the fabulous terrace and slept like babies in the most comfortable bed of our entire trip. We would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Florence. It is super well located, 3 blocks from the main train station, and seconds away from the major sights and great market shopping. Breakfast is served at the cafe next door, which provides a lively start to the day.

Residence Martin

4.8 on October 16, 2010

We stayed at the new Residence Martin and were greeted upon our arrival by Veronica and Nykolas. They are a delightful couple and fantastic hosts. Veronica speaks good English and is extremely motivated to be of help in regards both to making us comfortable in their nice B&B as well as suggestions for local things to see, experience and eat. Nykolas is a chef at the Trattoria Nerone, which is a fantastic place to eat and just minutes from the B&B, Mercato Centrale and train station. If we were to ever return to Florence we would stay here.
