Found this place while researching for a place to stay in Florence. It had great reviews so we went with it and it did not disappoint. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and although Marco wasn't there, his parents welcomed us and got us settled in. We were given a small map orientation where they showed us the must see...

Marco is amazing! he made our stay more pleasant by providing us with a map of Florence when we first arrived (what to see+ where to eat cheap etc.) We really enjoyed our breakfast at Pegaso (right across the street). The room was very clean ( + towels changed every 2 days). I totally recommend it!

The host Marco was very kind and helpful. Не gave us some nice tips for places to visit and budget restaurants to eat. The room was clean, good WiFi signal, quiet neighborhood, within walking distance from the historical center - 15-20 min. Easy access from SMN train station.

Marco is amazing. Every restaurants he suggested were excellent. Room is clean, comfortable but not luxurious. Breakfast at the corner Cafe is delicious. Cafe and pastries. You get a voucher from Marco. You have access to a fridg and kitchen. Location is so so... Far from city Center. Walkable or take a bus. Would recommend. Ciao.

Location is in a non-touristy neighborhood, but yet at walking distance from the historic centre (you could also take the bus). Really, really friendly service. Breakfast was on a nice caffe nearby. Rooms were spacious, but sheets felt really old and there was a terrible cigarette smoke smell in the bathroom. Communal kitchen was dirty. .

Thank you for writing your opinion. With respect to the sheets that are old and dirty impossible since there are provided by a firm of linen so new and clean. For the smell of smoke in the bathroom sorry if customers who have stayed before you have not respected the rules of the B & B where it is forbidden...

Very nice host, cosy, large room (the blue one), fine bathroom, good, facilities, typical Italian breakfast with local people, just across the street, downtown and supermarket close enough. We took advantage of Marco's advice and of the Easter events.

“Choose the blue room. Large bed, nice bathroom, quiet, interesting ceiling.”

“During our stay in Green room, the bed was very creaking. But maybe it's already fixed. The purple room (on 1st floor) is not the best, there are rooms better. In case you need to park your car on secured parking, you could look on the parking on Sansovino St. 53. It's an open-air secured parking, located in 15-20 min distance from the hotel by walking. The good thing is that it's located outside ZTL area of Firenze (zone with limited traffic). Also it's cheap - appr. 12-15 euro/day.”
