Great value, gracious service in Florence
Posted Aug 8, 2016
B&B Il Grillo Firenze provided an ideal accommodation for our travel budget. When we arrived we were greeted by one of the proprietors, Lorenzo, whose warm welcome included a helpful orientation for navigating the city. Service throughout our stay could not have been more considerate or attentive. Our family of four stayed comfortably in a simple, clean and bright room (fitted with a double and two twin beds) that opened onto a shared terrace. We started each day with a continental breakfast and an excellent cappuccino, or two. The B&B is located a short (app. 10 minute) bus ride from the historical center of Florence. All-day family bus tickets (for up to four people) are available for purchase right at the B&B, and the bus stop is just half a block from the door. The buses run frequently, but do plan for extra travel time on Sundays. We also took advantage of the proximity to two neighborhood grocery stores and had a couple of lunches at the B&B as guests are invited to use the refrigerator, tableware and dining area as needed. Our stay at B&B Il Grillo Firenze was most pleasant and worked very well for our family.
