Brilliant property which is expertly located in the centre of Florence... it will only take you 5 minutes to get to the Duomo. Rooms are really big and airy and there's always hot water available. Marco really makes this property- a true Italian who wants to show off the best of his city.

We stayed here last year when travelling Italy. The room had lovely original features adding to the charm. Marco was a fab host and was super helpful. It was also really close to central Florence making it easy to see all the sights. Would definitely recommend.

The biggest strength of this hotel is the location, which is very central to the major attractions in Florence. Our room was disappointing in that lighting was very poor, 2 of 3 outlets did not work which made charging all your devices difficult, fuse blew, no real chair(s) to sit in, no wifi I our room (#8) although it worked...

This is B&B is in a pretty good location not far from the central market and north of the historic city center and river. We walked everywhere without any trouble, but one day when we walked to Piazzale Michelangelo and other locations we had walked over 11 miles which may be too much for some people. The neighborhood is a...

I have to echo the remarks of other reviewers on this establishment. We had 4 days to visit the wonderful city of Florence with all its charm and history. We realised that we'd made an excellent start by choosing this place to stay. We walked with our suitcases from the drop-off place in the main square by the station; this...

An easy taxi from the train station. Marco(the host) is extremely informative and his passion for his home city shines through. He has great local, cheap restaurant tips and gives you a detailed map of all the sights. The room was beautiful and didnt lack anything. A great place to stay when visiting Firenze.

“We were allocated a room with an impressive, exposed brick ceiling. I'm not sure if this is unique to just one room but it might be worth asking to stay in one with this feature.”

“if you want a quieter room, ask for the ones facing the courtyard. Will be less bright, but definitely more peaceful.”
