I have been to accademia House two times and Marco is always friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and cosy, also tastefully decorated. The rooms have caracter and are very comfortable. Prices are resonale good value for money. I really enjoy staying at this bed and breakfast and I would definitely stay there again and recommend to my friends.

We just left Florence. The B&B was okay but we were disappointed that we were downgraded from what we had booked. Marco has a problem with his book-keeping. He was always shuffling guests around and he even had to move a couple to another hotel !! The location was okay but the website gives you a completely different impression of...

We arrived in Florence during the night. We were kind of worried staying in a guesthouse because we were two young ladies, BUT it happened to be the best decision and best place we picked out. Marco was awesome he carried our heavy luggages up many stairs. He then showed our room, and the keys for each door including the...

We arrived in Florence on the train from Rome, in the middle of a warm day. From SMN station, it was roughly a 15 min walk to Accademia House. This proved to be a slight challenge, as we wheeled our suitcases through the narrow footpaths of Florence under the midday sun! Marco was kind enough to help us carry our...

We felt very welcome on arrival at Accademia House - Marco was a terrific host with a great sense of humour and a willingness to help in any way possible. We were very grateful that he made some phone calls on our behalf to confirm some tours that we'd booked. Our room was very spacious with view to the street...

Marco was quick to reply to all of my email queries. Unlike some previous posts before about not being able to check in, Marco was flexible to my requests despite having changed our arrival time several times. We stayed at the Antiq room, which was able to accomodate the 3 of us. The shower was spacious, rooms were good. Although...

Accademia House is a great place to stay. We were there for a week in October of 2011 and then returned for another night later in our trip. Our room (the Studio) was large and the bathroom is new. We found the location to be excellent for our needs. The internet worked perfectly and we enjoyed having a kitchenette although...

Accademia House was a find. Great location, excellent host, and wonderful rooms. This is a place to stay if you are not comfortable in big hotels. Great personalized service, good rooms, and on a quiet street that is so close to everything. Marco Viti is big bonus. He was friendly, helpful and knowledgable. It was like staying with a family...

First off - Marco was a great host, he gave us a detailed map when we arrived and marked down places and restaurants that were a must see during our visit to Florence. The place was clean, and we felt we were in a safe neighbourhood. We stayed in the Studio on the top floor which was apparently a newer...

“We were allocated a room with an impressive, exposed brick ceiling. I'm not sure if this is unique to just one room but it might be worth asking to stay in one with this feature.”

“if you want a quieter room, ask for the ones facing the courtyard. Will be less bright, but definitely more peaceful.”
