Very helpful receptionist. Ideal location, just a few blocks from train station and old town center. Very nice modern rooms with a great shower and bathroom. Some confusion about storing bags for late check out but all worked out.

I stayed for only one night. The service was great and welcoming. I got a room upgrade due to sudden availability. Beautiful and simple elegance and great value for money. The B&B has a deal with two restaurants nearby for breakfas.

Summary: This isn't your honeymoon suite kind-of-place, but you can't beat this price for the location, service, and quality of rooms in a very touristed city. We were really pleased we booked this place! Location: - Only a 5 minute walk from the main train station (though note that streets are busy and you'll have to navigate on narrow sidewalks...

They replied to my request to say that the Double I wanted was only available for 1 night,...

Hello we think that a review like that is really no sense: you reserved last minute (less than 24 24h before), requiring to arrive late in the night, we informed you in advance about everithing: the late checkin fee , about the changing of the room the second night, what was included and what not in a last minute offer,...

This b&b was charming, with only 4 rooms. It was comfortable, accommodating, and had an excellent location to the train station and also down town. For breakfast they give you cards that can be used at two different cafes. It was nice to be able to have choices and options. The staff are great, and have great restaurant recommendations!! Would...

Just back from a visit to Florence, and we enjoyed our overnight stay here very much. We had the Lorenzo de Medici room, spacious, clean and comfortable. You can ask for a bottle of Prosecco to be in your room when you arrive! And there is a little kitchen that guests can use to make themselves tea and coffee. The...

Got stranded in Florence after missing a train. This hotel is not staffed 24/7 but after booking online the staff made a special trip to let us in. FYI the little store right next door belongs to the family. Shop local ;)

Very clean, not fancy, but everything you would need for a comfortable and conveniently located stay in Florence. Coffee and water. Air conditioning. Friendly and accommodating reception and departure. Even made reservations for us in advance for other activities. Great value for money in the heart of the city, and < 10 minutes' walk from Santa Maria Novella station.
