Very nice B&B. Staff was helpful and spoke English well. Our suite had a full kitchenette. A supermarket was just a 7 or 8 minute drive away. 20 minutes walk would get you to the center of Florence. If you prefer taxi, that costs less than 10 euros. If you need laundry service, an automatic laundromat "Wash & Dry" is...

We checked in and the person behind the desk seemed in a rush to be elsewhere. Gave us sheet of paper with information for internet and breakfast. Helped us up the stairs with luggage and that was it. The room had a weird smell and was so hot that we left windows wide open while we went down town. Came...

The staff was nice. The room was clean. The grounds were lovely. The air conditioning hardly cooled down the room at all. The beds were not overly comfortable either. It was a little farther away from the center of town than I thought it would be, but we always had a cab within about 5 minutes of calling for one.

Good location to city centre. Only took us 20 minutes to walk to the centre. Caught the bus to Piazzale Michelangelo to see the stunning view of Florence. We had a car and it was easy to get parking in the side streets at no charge. We rented the apartment and had not enough coffee cups, no plug to do...

I was in town for a congress and I managed to get a very good off-season deal on this quiet, charming little place which didn't feel like hotel but rather like renting a room from a house when the family is away. I could come and go as I pleased, hardly saw anybody else, still everything was very well taken...

“My room in the top floor facing the front yard was wonderful: incredibly high ceiling, four post bed, large and clean bath room, wood panel window shutters… All was very clean and neat.”
