What a fantastic find. Close to the city centre while being in a quieter and more authentic neighbourhood. Incredibly helpful hosts in Cinzia and Michel. Very stylish rooms with lovely bedding and bathrooms (ours had a fantastic original fresco on the ceiling). And lovely touches like a good coffee machine and Vin Santo and cantuccini left out in the communal...

I will call this a residence, not a hotel because it truly feels like your home away from home. Michel and his wife, Cinzia, are the gracious hosts. We had 2 rooms during our 2 night stay. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was served every morning, eggs, toast, fruit, croissants, cheese. Water, juice, coffee, tea, along with...

Michel welcomed us warmly and was so helpful with every part of our stay - orienting us on the map, restaurant recommendations, etc. The accommodations are fantastic - unique, beautiful and well maintained and we liked being just outside the main tourist spots. We highly recommend.

We arrived at the hotel and were greeted by Cinzia with the warmest of welcomes. We felt very much at home. Cinzia took the time to explain how everything worked in the hotel. Actually we called it our apartment as it felt as if we were the only guests. The Hotelwas fully booked, but it is so quiet and comfortable...

The room was stunning, every detail thought out. Breakfast was delicious and generous and although we keep kosher we had quite a few choices- and great coffee. Anything we needed; advice, even a microwave was brought down from their private home for us.

This is a good choice for a stay in Florence. The rooms are large, modern and comfortable on one floor of an 1865 Belle Epoca building. It is family owned and operated and the hosts were exceptionally gracious. Their recommendations on restaurants and touring options were terrific. Breakfasts were excellent. The B&B is about a 15 minute walk to the...

We had the most pleasurable stay with Michel and Cinzia. It felt like home and family. They took care of all details. The services were urging us to use them and they were easy to use. Thank you Michel and Cinzia for the wonderful time, and for the gift.

All of the other superlative reviews were accurate. This is the quintessential Bed and Breakfast experience, right in the heart of one of Florence's most appreciated and historic areas. The setting, the personal touch, the location, the quality of the food and the fabrics and the coffee and the coffee-maker and the bathroom - all 5-star rated. But the best...
