My husband, myself, my daughter and her husband stayed in Florence at the end of September 2012. We had separate rooms with the bath in the hallway. We were the only ones using that bath that worked for us. My husband and I had a huge room with a sleeping area and a living and dining area. Marcella was extremely... More

What a wonderful experience close to the heart of Florence! The rooms (both with a private bath or shared bath) are very comfortable and extremely clean. Marcella, the owner, creates an atmosphere where you quickly feel you have become a part of an Italian family. She readily helps with suggestions for restaurants, tourist sites, and quickly provides a map and... More

Staying with Marcella is like staying with your grandmother in a good way. There are lacy sheets and doilies. Marcella is very enthusiatic and you can understand her even though she speaks little English. We had a double room with a shared bathroom. The room was decent size for Europe, the bed was comfortable, and the fan kept it cool... More

The Rick Steves travel book evaluation and recommendation for this "casa" are spot-on! Marcella is the woman who owns and runs this B&B, and she is most considerate, kind, and helpful. The accommodations were certainly VERY clean when we were there, and we had NO problems or complaints. The location is terrific for Florence, as you can walk to main... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights last March and it was a wonderful experience. Marcella was so nice and she made our exploration of Florence a truly beautiful experience. She even made reservations for the Ufizzi and Accademia at no extra charge. We are already planning our next trip and will bring the kids this time... More

My wife and I stayed at Casa Rabatti in April and had an amazing time. We heard of Casa Rabatti through Rick Steves, and his comments were right on the money. Marcella was our instant Italian Grandma. She was immediately kind, friendly, and showed genuine interest in anything and everything we discussed. Marcella speaks broken English but goes out of...

I took my 17-year-old daughter for a two week trip to Italy as an early high school graduation present. We stayed with Marcella in Florence and it was a wonderful experience.

A very convenient location and a wonderful host; all we needed was to spend a few more days with Marcella and see more of Firenza. Marcella shares her humble home with travelers from all walks of life and was very helpful with our visit; making reservations at the Uffizi and Accademe for us; pointing us to her favorite local eateries;...

The language barrier made the process of making a reservation difficult. We asked for a double for two nights, we got a triple for three and didn't realize it until we were already confirmed. Marcella was downright nasty about it, immediately turning the situation into one where she was giving us a long loud lecture. In addition to this, the... More

Dear Guests, you are perfectly right. Unfortunately we experienced a mutual misunderstanding, but I thought we found a solution when we agreed about the payment of half the room price for the third booked night. Let me thank you for reporting on Tripadvisor the Wi-Fi problem, which has been promptly checked and proved as temporary. As far as mosquitoes are... More

Casa Rabatti is defined by its gracious owner, Marcella. We were greeted every time we returned to the B&B. Marcella's limited English and our very limited Italian didn't stop us from enjoying plenty of conversation. She was interested and very helpful in our plans to explore Florence. Five minutes after we arrived at Casa Rabatti on Thanksgiving Day, Marcella was... More
