Excellent homely B&B close to train stationPosted Jul 6, 2014
Pros: Host, location, cleanliness
Cons: The front entrance is a bit hard to find as it is not clearly labeled. Make sure to get directions on how to locate the B&B from Marco.
Location: It's Florence! There are plenty of things to see and do once you walk out to the center.
Marco was a wonderful host and made us feel like we were right at home. He is so helpful and friendly. He help us a lot in showing us where to go, eat and shop. Just his service and hospitality made our experience a 5/5. Breakfast is provided daily and he offers to make us coffee (cappuccino/latte). We felt very safe at his B&B. The location is very convenient from Firenze Santa Maria Novella (Florence Central Train Station). It is about an 8 minute walk from the train station, which was really important for us. We used Florence as our base as we made day trips to Pisa and Siena, so staying at a place close to the train station was ideal. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. -Eric

Odd but OKPosted May 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
The location is close to the train station making it convenient to get to yet on a very busy street. It's a bit loud with the traffic and away from all that Florence has to offer. Marco is very helpful with what to do and how to do it. This may be a bit over the top for some and if you are already familiar with what & where you want to go, just tell him to save the lecture. One of the concerns that we had was not being allowed to take our room key with us. You are requested to leave it on the front desk with all the other room keys. For me, this is a security risk. I did not see what the point in locking the room if my key is there for all. The reply is, nobody will take anything and if you have something of value that you are concerned about, you may store it in Marco's room. This led to a heated discussion and certainly tarnished our stay. We would not recommend based on policy, location, noise, comfort.

Great Staff, Cozy B&BPosted Jul 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Marco and Frederica were excellent hosts. Marco was very knowledgeable and showing us what to do and where to eat. They are very friendly and we would definitely recommend others to stay here. We had the "small" room, but it was more than sufficient for us.

Fantastic HotelPosted Jul 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
I would highly recommend this BB. it was a little hard to hard but we were highly satisfied. Marcco (the owner) was fantastic!!! he gave us so many great tips for our travels and made our sightseeing so much better. she showed us where all the good places were to eat and the cost of them. The room was great and very updated, I wish the Air Conditioner was a little bigger, it was very hot while we were there and was a little uncomfortable to sleep. The breakfast was small but very yummy! overall a great experience!! Thank you Marcco!!!
