The B&B was very conveniently located within Florence. Make sure to visit Pino's sandwich shop just down the street for some amazing panini's! The B&B breakfast consists of self serve pastries and make your own coffee. Also beware of the room closest to the office area as the sound echoes very loudly into the room making it difficult to relax.

My husband and I were (sadly) only in Florence for one night, but absolutely loved our stay in Black 5 Florence. The entrance is off the street and somewhat inconspicuous but the man who was running the hotel was extremely friendly. The rooms are large and the bed was comfortable. From the hotel, we easily walked to the Pone Vecchio,...

A very nice bed & breakfast in central Florence. Our room was very big and clean. We didn't book any breakfast so we were surprised as we got offered the typical italian breakfast with a coffee and a croissant. I can definitely recommend it!

We arrived, and were very dissappointed, no elevator, no help whatsoever, the person in reception not very friendly. Rooms were ok, breakfast a joke. Florence is a wonderful city. But I do not recommend this hotel.

We have been staying there for a few years now and if the welcome and reception is still perfect, the room would need a bit of refreshing.

For those of you that have a problem walking up three sets of steps you might be frustrated. Once you enter the bed-and-breakfast you will be pleasantly surprised What a great experience and a fantastic room. Centrally located. Florence was by far our favorite destination in Italy.
