Very nice B&B with extremely friendly hosts. About 15 minute bus ride from start of Florence city center. Bus stop is immediately outside the Villa gate. Stayed with my mom in a room with two twin beds. Room was larger than expected for Europe, and had its own bathroom. The tub/shower was quite small with a handheld shower head but...

There is a parking inside the property which is very convenient. There is also a bus stop right in front of the Villa. The bus takes...

We stayed in Villa La Sosta for 6 magical days. The place is outside of city center in a quiet and cozy neighborhood. The bus is just in front of the house. It takes about 10min by bus to get to city center, by walk it takes approximately 30min. It costs around 10 euro to get to the train station....

We had awesome stay here. The room was cool furnished and cozy. There was a nice terrace. The Villa is 10 minutes away from the Florence centre by bus which stops right in front of the hotel. Futhermore La Sosta is on the way to airport. There is a parking place. We both were happy.

We had a very comfortable stay, definitely unlike checking into a small hotel room. The moment we stepped into the villa, it felt as if we were home. The villa has a nice spacious living room on the ground floor and a nice chill area in the attic. Our room is charming and romantic in pink. The bed was big...

“If you’re sensitive to noise, ask for a room in the back if available, as light traffic noise from the road can reach the rooms in the front.”
