orenzo, the owner, is extremely helpful and friendly and always available to answer any questions! The rooms are spacious and clean with a very modern interior, and the location of the B&B is ideal - you can walk everywhere. The only small thing is that there is some traffic noise from the street, but not so much as to be...

Lara also told us about good places to go and about the shopping in the local area. We went during the off season. Bathrooms are shared. Most of the time we...

We stayed at Il Grillo for three nights in mid-September and it was just what we wanted. Only about 15 minutes from the centre of the city and a big comfortable room.

We stayed for three nights in September and really appreciated the AC. Lara and Lorenzo were super super nice and accommodating despite us having to check in during the evening (we emailed ahead of time). They provided lots of maps with suggestions, even printing out a schedule of hours for all the museums in Florence! They also make lovely cappuccinos...

My daughter and I stayed at Il Grillo for 4 nights in late July/early August 2012. I cannot say enough to endorse the hospitality of the hosts and the comfort of the facilities. The crowds in Firenze cultural sites were heavy and at times trying, but it was easy to remain centered because we knew we would be returning at...

We stayed for three nights during July 2012. The B & B was lovely and is situated just a fifteen minute walk from the train and coach station.
