Great location

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Great location and reasonably priced. Firm mattresses and no lift, which was no problem for us but just good to know. B&B was very clean and had good facilities such as shower and AC. Walking distance from Santa Maria Novella station and Ufizi Gallery.

Excellent Value.

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Pros: Good place to sleep, while being conveniently located [for a tourist] at a good price.
Location: Was 20 minutes walking distance from Railway Station and The Duomo. Very quite location but with restaurants only a few blocks away.
Stayed 7 nights. The room was a good size, quiet and well kept. Basically want we wanted was a good place to sleep, while being conveniently located [for a tourist] at a good price - that is exactly what we got. As a bonus we got a basic breakfast with friendly service. The owner was a young couple that did not live onsite. This leads to a unique self serve checking in. Look for a note addressed to you taped besides the door. You will meet the owner the next day at breakfast.

Excellent location.

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: The location was great and it was quiet. It also had character and the manager was very pleasant, friendly and helpful with good English.
Cons: A kettle and fridge in the room would be excellent.
Location: Major museums, cathedral, bridges, cafés, supermarkets, bars, markets and shopping.
B&B is in an excellent location for walking to the major attractions in Florence. It is in a quiet location too. Breakfast is provided and there are two supermarkets, cafés and bars nearby.

Nice hotel at walkable distance from station

We were reaching late but Albana who owns the hotel kept the key outside of our room for us attached with a welcome note.

Everything you need, nothing you don't.

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: Great price, good location, very clean.
Cons: If I absolutely had to say something negative, I would say they could use slightly softer beds. After walking all day you won't notice.
Location: You can walk over one block and stroll up the river right to the middle of town. This is an easy location to get everywhere, like the train station.
A great place to stay if you are the kind of person who doesn't call room service every five minutes. Basically like you live in Florence and you have a nice mom who comes in and straightens up your room and fixes you a light breakfast. Fantastic place. The young lady who came in every day spoke clear English and had a good sense of humor.

Quiet area

Posted Mar 21, 2014
Close to the Arno, 15 to 20+ minute walk to most visited areas. Quiet area. If you are expecting luxury this not the place for you. Clean room, hard beds :( small continental breakfast which she does not set up until 8 am but it was enough to start the day. Had to ask for clean towels after day 3. No elevator, 2 sets of stairs to carry your luggage. It is a good out of the way to sleep and stay. My daughter who is studying in florence saw the place and thought it was a nice place compared to other places she has seen. It should be noted there is only someone there in the morning at the desk. You can contact her by phone or email as needed. Wifi available.

The accomodations were pleasant.

Posted Mar 12, 2014
Pros: It was quiet and clean and easy to walk to.
Cons: If the hall lights could be on in the evening it would be helpful as you make your way to the second floor. We couldn't find the light switch.
Location: It was next to the River on a quiet street. We walked everywhere. It took us about 15 minutes to walk here from the train station.
We were very pleased with our choice. We could walk easily to anything we wanted to see. I am glad that we arrived during the daylight, however, as it was on the second floor and would have been dificult to locate in the dark.

Not a very nice location

Posted Feb 22, 2014
Room was clean, bed was hard only one each pillow. Owner never there though did leave a contact number . Had to take pillows from another room luckerly not all were occupied. No where to get a drink no tea or coffee making facilities. Owner did after I complained leave kettle in breakfast area the next day. Had to walk for 15 mins to find somewhere to get a hot drink at 8 I clock at night. Spent second two nights in another hotel which we had to pay extra for.

Excellent hotel for backpackers!!

Posted Feb 13, 2014
Clean, simple, about 15 minutes walk from the Piazza Della Reppublica, and even closer to the train station, duomo, and Santa Maria de novella. It's right next to the US embassy by some of the most expensive hotels in Florence so you always feel safe and know you're in a good area. The B&B owner is extremely nice and helpful. It is very private and you almost feel as if you rented an apartment. Breakfast is more than enough and delicious, "light and healthy" (coming from a man) . The instructions to get in were left by the door for us since the owner wasn't home at the time but they were extremely easy to follow. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone.

Nice place but a bit out of the way.

Posted Jan 1, 2014
The hotel itself was fine. Clean, spacious and friendly receptionist. However it is set back a bit from the main area and will cost anything between 7-9 euros from the train station. It's also a good 20-30 mins walk to the main hustle and bustling area . When arriving at the hotel we were met with a note stuck to the door, this gave is instructions on how to enter the place supplying the main door key also. We arrived about 4.30pm opened the door and were met by darkness the light switch is just behind the door on the right. The hotel is situated on the second floor so you have a few stairs to climb. There is a code to enter to get into the hotel once inside you have a pleasant hotel. Our room keys were at reception with a map. Was a little strange not having anyone there to great you.
