Within a structure of 1400 tastefully renovated, the bed and breakfast offers a warm and cozy atmosphere both in the typical Tuscan decor is in welcoming staff that we reserve for our customers.

We were surprised and pleased to find this affordable Bed and Breakfast near so many of the Florence attractions. Our room was attractively decorated, clean and yes, we had our own bathroom and air conditioning. The B&B has a small common kitchen and sitting room; coffee in the morning was made with a machine - not instant. The hostess was charming and allowed us to leave our bags even after we had checked out, allowing us to sightsee unencumbered. The one negative was the breakfast...packaged biscotti and croissants. But honestly, with all the nearby cafes and restaurants, it wasn’t a big deal.

The room (can’t call it a bed and breakfast because there was no breakfast) is less than a 10 min walk from the train station. And close to Duomo, Accademia, Mercato market and about a 20-25 min walk to Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. The room was very clean and WiFi was good. It had a low platform bed which was not very comfortable to sit and get up. No furniture to keep bags. Just a table and one chair. TV had no English channels - not even BBC or CNN to catch news. There was a wardrobe but it also had extra blankets, so not much room unpack and keep stuff. Hanging rod was way too high. The safe was tiny and not sturdy, so we never used it. We never saw Martina or Irene, so we did not know what we could use in the kitchens. All communication was via email and messages. No one was ever around - we just left the keys and money for tax and cleaning ( Yes, they charge 8 euros a day for cleaning) on the reception desk and left. Not seeing anyone at anytime was very concerning for us.

We are a bed and breakfast.. simply you have chosen the option WITHOUT BREAKFAST with Expedia .. if you pay for breakfast you have breakfast.. Every day we are at the b&b.. not all day because we aren’t an hotel with 24 hour reception.. and if you need of us in person we arrive in any moment ..if for you was so important to see us why did you not ask to meet us in person by one of your message? we have tv sat with English Channel.. I think that you wasn’t able to switch on it.. you can tell us about this problem by one of your message that you have told to send us so perhaps you can solve it.. Finally cleaning... when you reserve by Expedia, hotel.com or booking is well specified that you have to pay cleaning and tax as extra So.. next time get a better look what you reserve :-) Thanks a lot Martina and Irene

Pros: I stayed on the Dante room for 2 nights. The room and the bathroom are very clean. The place is very quiet and close to the Firenze Central Market where you can go for lunch and dinner with different options. The wifi is really good. The staff is very helpful and kind. The commom room is ok. Cons: It was not described on the website that I had to pay a cleaning fee, it cost me 16 euros. The breakfast does not worth the cost of this B&B. If you chose this B&B because of the free breakfast, don’t.

Charming B&B offering comfortable clean and quiet accommodations. Ideally located within walking distance of the main attractions. Wifi worked very well. The host, Martina, was a delightful Lady who is very helpful and made sure my checkin was smooth., She also arranged for my Taxi on my departure day. Breakfast was provided by voucher at nearby restaurants. It was very basic (as per the Euro norm) but the service was friendly and they had an Espresso machine and biscotti available, as well as Fridge for groceries in the common area. Room and the hotel had a charming decor and I felt very comfortable my whole stay. I should add the room was large by Euro standards, with adequate room for all my luggage. There was an issue one day when the breakfast places were both closed (Liberation day holiday) in spite of having assured the owner they were open that day. They refunded the cost and directed me by phone to a place where I enjoyed a good breakfast. My room did not have a view and this may not be a great place if arriving by Car, but if you are from Canada ( or Australia/NZ, or US or.../) you probably will be better off not driving in Firenze. I know where I'm staying for next visit to this amazing city!
