Wonderful room. Clear, clean and always with good smell.Nice reception and service. Breakfast is nice although out of hotel. Great location and rates for Firenze. Near train station and Duomo. I recommend for singles and couples in summer vacation on Europe.

I liked the location. Super close to the train station and foodies paradise - Mercato Centrale and a lively street at night. Although it might be noisy outside, it's all nice and quiet inside the room which made for a good night's rest. Staff was very nice, helpful and informative. Room was nice and clean. Bathroom was clean and modern....

The location of this B&B is fantastic - easily walkable to all sorts of sights in Florence. The rooms are modern, clean, and the staff very helpful. Our room was on the front of the building, but noise from the street was not an issue, and the temperature controls were just fine. The bed was comfortable. Wifi was also available....

We probably read all the reviews for this B&B, and thought we knew exactly what we would get: a tiny room, a tiny bathroom, a great location (it is located in an old building, so...). We were really surprised to find a decent size room (a really comfortable king sized bed, coffee table, 2 chairs, a small refrigerator, TV, air...

Three minutes from the train station and less than fifteen minutes from all the historic museums. Comfortable, clean and functional. Nice continental breakfast is included in a cafe a block away. No elevator though, makes dragging you 20kg suitcase up two flights an inconvenience.

me and my husband was on honeymoon when we stayed at this hotel....and we were surprised for what they have in our room....a well arranged honeymoon room and a champagne aside from the welcome fruits and drinks....the location is just across the train terminal...we will definitely be back in this same place when we get to Florence.

Clean, but not so spacious as expected. Maybe it's because we are four adults and the quadraple room is supposedly for a family with kids and has only one bathroom. But I should say the stay was overall satisfactory. One minor thing.--- we were provided a basket of fruit....not much to eat ---anyway it was complimentary. Thank you.

Recently stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be, overall, excellent. The B&B is only a few minutes walk (less than 5) from the main train station making it very accessible and handy. It is also only a short walk to all the main sites.... the Duomo is about a 5 minute walk away, with the Ponte Vecchio...
