Review for La Luna Guesthouse - Florence

La Luna Guesthouse was located at approximately 400m away from the Stazione Firenze. It was fairly easy to find the way there and and rooms were situated on the second floor of the 500 hundred years old building. There were pizzerias nearby and also a mini-mart icentro, which our host Riccardo recommended.

We were showed to our room for 4 right-away. There was a famous florentine alfresco in the room. The private bathroom was not physically connected to our room and it was a few steps away down the walk way. It was well furnished.

Upon request, our friendly host Riccardo whipped out a map of Florence and he was extremely detailed with the sightseeing locations. The shops for good gelato were also recommended.

Breakfast was the usual Italian style of croissants, toasted hard bread, Nutella and coffee. Riccardo was cordial and helpful. We were offered umbrellas on rainy days and prompt daily weather reports in the morning.

The ventilation in our room was not sufficient. We had to open the window and that made the room too cold for the night. We turned the heater off and shut the window which made it more bearable. The ventilation could be better improved as we some times detected a funny smell in the room after our showers. We were speculating that it was due to our kebab meals which left the smell lingering on our jackets.

Riccardo's services were good. However, due to the constraints of the building, we had to walk out to assess the toilette. This was a chore for the night when we need to take a leak as we had to grope for the light switches on the walls of the walkway. Suggestion: motion sensing lights will help both host and guests.

In summary, Riccardo is a good host and once the minor issues are fixed, the La Luna Guest house will be a better place to stay. For now, I will still recommend friends to stay there if the minor conveniences are acceptable. After all, this is a guesthouse that is for the budget conscious.

While planning our trip to Italy I read numerous reviews on places to stay and was very happy with La Luna Guesthouse. The accommodations were clean, cozy with modern bathrooms! Ricardo Lapresti was a warm, genuine host providing our family with great recommendations for restaurants, the best times to visit the many tourist attractions, and hidden treasures that made our time in Florence memorable. It was a short walk from the hustle and bustle of city center and the train station. I highly recommend La Luna Guesthouse and Ricardo.

Room Tip: Ask for a connecting bathroom

La Luna Great House is a great location it is in Florence, only an amazing walk away from everything. Our room was very comfortable and clean and Ricardo was very helpful, informative and a great host. We definitely want to go back go Florence and stay at La luna Guest House again

We had an amazing stay in the Le Luna Guest house with our wonderful host Riccardo Lopresti. Not only was the house roomy, clean and cozy, but Riccardo made us feel very much at home, gave us incredibly helpful information about which sights to see around Florence, and which restaurants to dine at (all of them were incredibly delicious). I would definitely recommend this guest house to whoever is going to be visting Florence. We had a wonderful time, and if we ever get another chance to return to Italy, the La Luna Guest House is one of the place we will most definitely revisit and stay in again. Thank you for making our time in Florence so amazing!
