Location is in a residential area; good pizzeria nearby; grocery store nearby which is great to get water and snacks for your time in Florence. About a 30-minute walk to reach Florence city-centre; or a 10 minute bus ride (bus stop just across street). Laura was really friendly to us even with her limited English, and breakfast was excellent and...

Room was clean and nice, about 20 minutes by walk from the city centre so the localization also very good. Laura is great, very helpful and nice and always smiling. Meeting her in the morning was very nice beginning of the day :)

B&B A Casa di Virgilio was very open and accommodating to myself and 3 friends when we were unable to check in to our scheduled B&B elsewhere. We had such a great experience the first night, we decided to stay there the remainder of our trip in Florence. Laura is very pleasant and helpful and makes a great breakfast. I...

Very good for budget - small breakfast included, the lady is very helpful even in her broken English. Clean, neat - if you on a budget use this establishment for sure. Very close to bus route, just take the correct bus. Lovely little local restaurant on the corner opposite.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were very happy with our experience. Check-in was very easy and the service we received superb. Our bedroom with en-suite bathroom was quite large and the bed very comfortable. The location was perfect as the bus stop is right outside the front door. The supermarket Esselungo is conveniently around the corner. The wi-fi...

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B, rooms were tidy and so "Florence". We were two families with small children and even though this is likely a place for couples, we were very satisfied with this place. Parking possibility close to the B&B in a garage is a huge advantage!

I am very happy that you have been found well, yes it is very important to have a secure parking garage and valet to park their cars safely. Thanks very much

Small walk-up in a non-descript area of Firenze/Florence. Very narrow check-in window left us scrambling to get the bus from the train station in time to avoid the late check-in surcharge, but it worked out in the end for us. Breakkie was nice and plentiful, a large selection of continental (pastries and such) and fresh fruit, espresso coffee etc. Was...

I do not really remember this situation, however, consistent with our commitments we are willing to rollback the bags as a favor and do not ask any surcharges (luggage storage is not our service), it happened that guests have withdrawn their suitcases we asked to use the bathroom (by using it incorrectly), which had previously available to other visitors, therefore...

This is a pleasant little B&B a short bus ride (take the 14 or the 2 across the street to the train station) to all the sights and sounds of Florence. The rooms are cool and comfy, with nice heavy windows to block out the car sounds below. There's a reasonably priced honour-system snack and beverage service (hugely appreciated) and...

got the feeling of staying in a real Florentine house, big room (unusual for Italian hotels!), breakfast good enough, clean place, very helpful staff, at long walking distance from the historical center but there is a bus stop very close and bus is cheap and frequent.
