“great people, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

The people who run it are really friendly. The rooms are clean and spacious. It is no more than 10 minute walk from any of the main attractions that Florence has to offer. excellent value for money. Great view from 1 of the bedrooms. Were really kind, let us leave our bags there for the day when we had our train in the evening

Room Tip: If you choose the 3 bed room then it is en suite

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

We stayed in Florence at this B&B and it was so nice! The couple who owns it is very friendly, and they speak many languages. Very smart! The place is comfortable, clean, everything you need to rest after walking a lot in Florence (you will...). We actually felt bad we couldn't stay another day, but he had to keep going... to Rome. The price is reasonable for students, but if you want a more expensive place, don't go there, you know, some people can be very particular. I'm all about comfort, not fancy places designed by whatever...
There's no elevator, some stairs. Shower can be tight for bigger people definitely! just being honest...
One more thing, PLEASE HAVE GELATO AT "LA GELATERIA" IT'S AMAZING! chocolate hazelnut is awesome...

Il Magnifico lived up to its name, with a magnificent view of Florence out the window of our room. The location is convenient to many attractions. The room was huge and very clean. The owners were very helpful and spoke an amazing number of languages. They really tried to help you enjoy the city that they now call home.
The furnishings were simple but comfortable. The breakfast was fine for me. I liked being able to boil water for tea. There is a grocery nearby if you want anything special.
My only caution would be that there are a lot of steps to climb. This property would not be suitable for anyone who has mobility issues.

The couple who run this B&B were so lovely and really helpful. The rooms were huge, nicely decorated and very clean. They were a bit cold but there were extra blankets available. Our room (#5) had an attached bathroom which was handy. Everyone keeps banging on about the breakfast - it was fine, fairly standard for Italy. No cooked breakfast but it did the job! The free espresso was wonderful!! The location was great, very close to all the sights. Would definitely stay here again!!

Upon our arrival, Letizia, was very helpful in giving us directions and advice. She and Alain were both very helpful and thorough. Even provided us the best room with an impeccable view of the Arno River, Duomo, and City. We were so pleased with our massive room that we spent the first night in Florence mostly in our bedroom. It was such a magical place that my now fiance proposed to me right here in this room of the B&B. I think that in of itself speaks volumes of the type of stay this little gem truly is. It's more than central to all of your main sites, quiet, charming, comfortable, and spacious. They provided us with individual housecoats, bottle of wine, and a simple breakfast. To top it off, they even cleaned our rooms! Great value, Super location, Excellent Hosts, and Unparalleled experience. We would not hesitate to return! Thanks again.
