In the foreigner’s mind, Florence strains under the weight of so much history that it’s sometimes difficult to remember that it’s the 21st century there too. It’s not all Renaissance architecture and crumbling frescoes — modern life goes on there, just like anywhere else, and contemporary small hotels like the Residence Hilda operate alongside the grand old-fashioned five-stars.
And it isn’t just in terms of design that the Hilda is the polar opposite of the grand hotels. This place hardly feels like a hotel at all — with just twelve suites, no public spaces to speak of, and the kind of minimal service that keeps to the background, it’s for the low-maintenance traveler, the sort who doesn’t need constant looking after.
Occupying a converted apartment building on a side street just north of the Duomo, the Hilda is improbably well-located for sightseers, shoppers, and business travelers alike. Suites are handsome, modern, with contemporary designer furnishings and a calming cream palette. Windows, looking out over the picturesque red rooftops of the city, are double-glazed to keep out the street noise. Fully equipped kitchens are standard, but cooking is by no means obligatory — any number of restaurants lie within walking (or delivery) distance.
