My boyfriend and I stayed here for 9 nights while visiting Florence for a friend's wedding. I would have no problem recommending this B&B while touring the Florence. It is an ideal base and close to some wonderful sites-only two bridges away from the Ponte Vecchio. Accommodation was comfortable and cleaned everyday.A small breakfast was also available in our room....

If you're looking for the cheapest place to stay comfortably in Florence, with a private bathroom, this is it. The location is decent, with convenient access to the bars and restaurants of Oltrarno, but is a bit of a hike from the main sites. However, for those wanting to stay away from the overly-touristy center, this is a good choice....

My wife and I stayed here for several nights in May 2009. Our room was clean and we had a private bathroom across the hall from our room. The room had a window but it looked into a storage / utility room that had a skylight and sinks / mops / brooms. Also, the room had a noticeable mold /...

I don't stay at hotels or fancy places, so if you're the opposite, you wouldn't agree or benefit with my review. The rest of you, read on... GREAT LOCATION: a bridge away from Ponte Vecchio, steps away from the best gelatos in florence. You get the benefit of being near the tourist spots AND near the local neighborhood where you...

Alessandra was welcoming and friendly. She got us set up in our room and gave her phone number in case we had problems when she wasn't in her office. She also allowed us to keep our luggage in the building while my friend and I toured more of Florence on check out day. She also let us pay with a...

Located in the Oltrarno quarter of Florence, this B&B is recommended in Rick Steves Florence & Tuscany guidebook - and heartily by me. It is a great budget choice in Florence; not a budget town. Despite reading a somewhat negative review, we made a choice to lodge here. Long ago I discovered that there are reviewers who bash small rooms,...

We stayed at Soggiorno Alessandra this fall and found it to be a little lacking. Alessandra was very friendly, and our room was quiet. However, our room was VERY small...I felt like we were living in a closet. Also, while there is no smoking in the rooms, our room was right next to Alessandra's, and she must smoke beause often...

Unfortunately we drove to Florence--scary! However when we arrived in the city we called Alessandra and she was extremely helpful. When we arrived she helped us with parking and was so nice. Also we arrived much later then we thought we would (traffic) and it was no problem. Luckily our room had air conditioning so we didn't have to leave...

I recently stayed here and found Alessandra and her helper, Barbara, to be very nice, and helpful. Both went out of their way to assist us where they could. The location is also excellent - no need to use buses or taxis to get around - everything you will want to see is within walking distance. The photos you see...

I would think twice before staying at this hotel. While it is reasonably priced, you get what you pay for. First off, we had a room on the street and the street noise was horrible--it didn't stop all night. Even with ear plugs, it was hard to sleep. Also, when you arrive at the hotel, you walk through a dingy...

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighbourhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
