Good place, with character, in FlorencePosted Aug 7, 2014
Cons: Perhaps breakfast was a little thin: coffee, juice, one main pastry and two other little cookies the size of a bite.
Not a usual hotel but a Bed &Breakfast in an old house in the historical centre of Florence. Make no mistake, “old“ doesn’t mean “run down”. After you enter the old gate, specific to many buildings in Florence, you’ll find yourself in a very welcoming, comfortable house - clean , renovated- but still preserving an old look, enough to add some character and “flavour” to your stay. The owner is a very kind man, making all efforts to make you feel welcome and relaxed. He waited for us to check in even after 8 pm ( we were late) and he handled very professionally our panic when we realised we forgot one of our bags in the taxi that brought us to the hotel. Fortunately the taxi driver brought back our bag in the next 10 min. THANK YOU!

Fantastic location, irritating ownerPosted Jul 6, 2014
Cons: Shower, wifi
A short walk from Santa Croce and not too far from the Duomo either. Great location! Had a problem with the shower as it took a while for the water to heat up and then it would not drain. Wifi was also spotty and did not work in the room. To top it off, the owner was constantly hovering and leaving us post-it notes to do this, or that. A little annoying. However, the location was so good that we would have probably forgiven anything. And the absolute BEST gelato we have ever had was right next door!!

Cute and Romantic B&B in FlorencePosted Jul 3, 2014
We loved our stay here! Out of all of our 7 stops on our honeymoon through Europe, this was our favorite hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a nice size with a good sized bathroom. The window overlooked the piazza and we liked to keep our window open while we were relaxing in the afternoons. Everything you need is nearby: gelato, restaurants, beverage shop (we bought a few great bottles of chianti there), a large market (we bought great prosciutto, cheeses, and baguette here for a cheap lunch and had a really nice time sitting at the table in our room eating and drinking the afternoon away, looking out over the piazza.) We were able to walk everywhere we wanted in the city and never felt like we were far away.

Convenient location, great valuePosted Dec 6, 2013
My fourth visit and as enjoyable as always. Handy for the major museums (10-20 mins walk), local supermarket, near our favorite restaurant (Vecchia de Firenze). Very clean and comfortable.

Glad we chosePosted Sep 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were looking forna budget hotel with a great location and were glad we chose Locanda De Ciompi. The room was clean and had enough space for us and our bags. They even had a small closet which helped us keep things organized. Only 6 rooms and we happened to get #3, the only room which didn't have an adjoining bathroom. Although the bathroom in the hall was only used for our room, it would have been convenient and comfortable to have been given one of the other rooms...especially considering we were on our honeymoon. Since they knew this in advance of our arrival it was a bummer they didn't consider offering us a better, more private option. Besides this we loved the location. Convenient walk to...everything and some great little squares and lively areas for us when we wanted to stay near at night. I was impressed with the cleanliness but growing up in an Italian household I didn't expect anything less. The room did smell a bit musty upon entering and the AC never seemed to work. Luckily the weather was fine and we are not hot people. Do choose this hotel if younwant a great location for day touring and near lightlife without being loud on the immediate street, BUT do ask for a room with a en-suite bathroom and a strong air conditioner.

Perfect for us. Quaint, convenient and quiet.Posted Aug 8, 2013
Pros: The old look and once you are in the room, you are away from hustle and bustle outside. Of the places we stay in Italy, this is no doubt our favorit
Cons: Our little fridge is not cold enough.
Location: We walk everywhere, to all the major tourist sites.
We have a wonderful time. Room is very comfortable for 3 adults. Good wifi and free. Beds are comfortable. Close to grocery store and there is also a laundromat. Alessio and Lisa are really nice folks and helpful.
