This February my husband and I spent 6 days in awesome B&B "Locanda de' Ciompi" in Florence. SUMMARY: We can only recommend this place. Location, service and breakfast were outstanding, room - in a very good condition and super clean, stuff - really nice, everything we needed (sights, cafes, supermarkets, etc.) - at a walking distance. But if you are alike me extra sensitive to noises (especially if your visit is to be during the high season or at the weekend) ear plugs could spare you some nerves. LOCATION: The hotel is at about 10 minutes by foot from the central square of Florence (Cathedral, Bell Tower, Opera Museum, etc.), Bargello, Gallery Academia, Church Santa Maria della Croce and so on (depends on direction). A bit longer but still not more then 20 minutes would take to get to the Arno river embankment, Ponto Veccio, Palazzo Veccio, Gallery Uffici. If you need a supermarket or restaurant, you'd also find one in 5 minutes. We like to walk, so we never used any transport at all. BREAKFAST: In our reservation was included a really delicious breakfast in a nearby cafe: a croissant, a cup of coffee, a glass of juice and a toast with ham or cheese. ROOM: We had a Superior Double Room with a private bathroom. It was light, cozy and very clean. We noticed neither insects, nor anything else disturbing. There was an electric heater, which we used sometimes at night. It was also very convenient to have a little electric kettle and a couple of cups directly in our room to drink some tee any time we wanted. The was also a safe in a room. SHOWER & WATER Both hot and cold water was always there and the water pressure was decent. Bathroom was big and comfortable, had enough space to store all our care products. NOISE Since I'm extra sensitive to noises, the only thing, that I could count as a problem, was the noise from the nearby street at the weekend. It's a pedestrial area full of cafes, which work late, so there are some not entirely sober folks, who found it appropriate to shout under our windows in the middle of the night. But my ear plugs and closed window solved the problem entirely. Concerning other noises, we didn't hear our neighbors and except for the weekend the noise from the street was bearable. SERVICE It is a family B&B with a very warm and hospitable atmosphere. Everyone was really kind and helpful to us. Thank you very much, Alessio! We had unforgettable time at your property. When we'd come back to Florence, we would be happy to stay at Locanda de' Ciompi again.

Easy to find & within walking distance of the train station. The apartments are situated in a nice square that’s a bit rough round the edges but a great sun trap & also great for watching the world go by. The entrance to the apartments is through one of the large wooden double doors that you see all over Florence & wonder what’s behind. Here, the open into what was a grand palazzo & you can feel what the building must have been like in its heyday. When we arrived, the staff couldn’t initially find our booking, but after some time, they dug it out. Arriving at the room, we found it wasn’t the twin we requested, but a double, but this was quickly remedied. Our room was big and spacious with more than enough room for 2 or more. It was modern & well equipped. Best though, was the views from two aspects, over both the Duomo & the Santa Croce cathedral. We never used the restaurant but it looked ok. There are so many places nearby to eat & if you want to self cater, there is a supermarket about 100 metres away with everything you’d ever need (including a great deli counter). Good value & I’d definitely go again.

We booked this hotel through Travel Zoo/Trip Master based on its location in Florence. We were trepidatious due to the previous hotel we stayed in on this trip. Fortunately, The Hotel Arizona was not only a pleasant surprise, but truthfully a great place to stay in Florence! It is in a quiet neighborhood, yet still within easy walking distance to the city center and all the amazing Florentine sites and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and a breakfast spread is included. We will stay here again on our next visit!

Guest House Biffy Simone is a quaint place to lay your head. The bedrooms are large and lookout onto the streets of Florence. The en-suite bathroom is a nice edition and makes for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is very small, and makes making your own food very difficult. However, Guest House Biffy Simone is near the supermarket which means buying prepared meals easy. The ambiance of the converted flat makes for a homey feeling, perfect for a short stay. It's also easy on the wallet, price wise. It is located in the perfect spot, because it is easy to walk to all the attractions without being in the heart of the noisy, tourist areas.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights during August 2019. We were so happy with our visit! We walked from the train station upon arrival in Florence. The walk to the BB was about 15-20 min with luggage. It wasn’t too difficult but wasn’t easy either. Luckily we packed light and each only had carry on suitcase. The BB was quite easy to find. It is on the third floor (for US) so be aware if you overpack since there’s no elevator. The BB is lovely! We were greeted by one of the employees who was very kind and helpful-all the staff is bilingual. They provided us with everything we needed- a map of the city, WiFi, and any other questions we may have about our stay. We had the BB book the half day wine tour and was very happy with it. We stayed in the studio room so we had an external private bathroom. However we were aware of the external bathroom upon booking the room. So we were not surprised. The room was supplied with robes for us to wear when we needed to walk to the WC. The room was very lovely with a window overlooking the courtyard. There was plenty of space for our luggage. The room even had a sink in it! There is a wardrobe in the room with a safe and to hang items. The room was plenty big. When one visits Florence they are not spending too much time in the room except to sleep. So for us it was plenty spacious. The room did have an AC unit which worked fine. We were never hot in the room even for August! Please take advantage of the water fountain in the main room. We filled our reusable water bottle many times with it. I would highly recommend Casa Rovai! They even kept our luggage the day we checked out and helped arrange a taxi when we needed one. They also suggested a wonderful restaurant for Florentine steak! You cannot beat the location. A short walk to duomo and via de Benci with plenty of restaurants and nightlife.

When booking accommodations for a week in Florence, I wanted a Tuscan feel. This B&B had this in droves, with beamed ceilings, terracotta tiled floor, shuttered windows, and incredible views onto the Duomo. The place, tastefully decorated with Florentine art, was immaculately clean, and the cleaning crew left the room spotless every day. The room was comfortable with lockable wardrobe and safe, generous-sized shower, and expected amenities for a B&B room, including tea service and travel-sized toiletries. The only problem was that the walls are rather thin, so in the evenings I heard a man having a very loud conversation (in Italian), but couldn't tell where he was. Breakfast was robust by Italian standards, with fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese, and sliced deli meats as well as a staggering array of pastries and sweets, as well as cold cereals, milk, coffee, tea, and juice. I know some other Americans complained about the lack of hot food, but that is quite uncommon for Italian breakfasts. The short hours for the front desk staff was at times difficult to handle (they are only there from 9am-noon and 3-8pm), especially if one needs assistance before striking out for Florence's sights, many of which open at 8:15. However, entry to the building (built in 1500!) and the very modern elevator was easy and appreciated. The B&B is well situated, with restaurants, shops, and a charming coffee shop all within a couple minutes walk.

Florence is an amazing city but it can be difficult to find somewhere to stay. I would highly recommend this place as 1) location of it great 2) the area is beautiful 3) if you get breakfast included in your stay, it is really good breakfast and can save you money! The only bad thing, from my experience, was that our room was down in the basement. Other than that it was a great stay. Across the hotel there is beer gardens which also serve food. It was walking distance to the cathedral and viewpoint (if you don’t mind walking that is). The room itself was very spacious and that was great. It had air conditioning, a window, tv, good bathroom, a wardrobe and desk. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone!

We visited Florence for 3 days from 20th to 22nd May 2019. We stayed in la Torre Dei Salterelli which is located in the Piazza Dei Salterelli. The location is extraordinary. The moment you step out of the room and walk a few steps and look to the right you will see Piazza Della Signoria with the replica of David standing along with several masterpieces in front of the Palazzo Vecchio. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and cozy.The internet which is free is very fast. But it is the location which a very important feature of the place. All the important places you would like to visit including The Duomo, Academia, The Uffizi Gallery, The Bargello and Medici Chapel are within 10 minutes walking distance. But most important is the hospitality of Pietro and Simona which makes this place special.

We just got back from spending 5 nights at the Ottantotto Hotel in Florence and would recommend it. The hotel is in the Oltrarno area of Florence, across the river from the major sites, but only a 10-15 minute walk away. The area is much calmer and local but still buzzing with activity and with tons of great restaurants, artisan workshops, cafes and pretty squares. The hotel itself is a beautifully restored home with a total of 8 guest rooms and a small garden on the ground floor. We stayed in the basic room and were very comfortable despite its relatively small size. Details and design were well thought out and it was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was pretty good, though we both thought it was a bit strange they wanted to charge 3 Euros additional for a scrambled egg at a place like that. The system for after hours self-checkin was great and I wish more hotels would do it that way!

We stayed in la farina apartments for a few nights during the peak heat wave in Europe in June this year. Our apartment, which supposedly has air conditioning was just insanely HOT. We couldn’t sleep at night because of this and we brought it up with the reception twice and both times we were told oh we’ll fix it while you’re out today! But we’d return again in the evenings to the hot apartment. I really don’t think the air conditioning was working at all! Was very disappointing. The apartment itself was well furnished and had a nice feel to it - Pity we couldn’t enjoy it with the crazy hot weather and faulty air conditioning. The apartment’s are also bit of a walk from the station so if you’re carrying heavy bags prepare to lug it around for 15 minutes. There’s a really nice pizza place right next door and that was pretty much the only positive thing about staying at la farina.

Large rooms, all renovated, nice and modern design, very comfortable bed, perfect cleaning. Room are equipped with a small fridge, air conditionign TV and a working Wi-Fi. The shower (no bathtub) may be dark in some rooms, but it is not a big problem, at least for me. Normal amenities in the bathroom. A basic but suffcient breakfast. Nice and friendly staff that can also help you in going around and/or booking trips and museums. Indeed very good value for money

Let's start by the obvious plus for this hotel and to be honest takes any negative away - it's location , I have I attached the view of the Duomo from our room window . The room it self was very big and had lots of storage space , the lockable private bathroom was located outside the room across the hall it was basic but not as bad that has been posted ( I'm 5'11 and 16 stone and managed fine in the shower cubicle ) . You are situated in a very noisy area but there are double windows that lock out all noise and although there are curtains on the window alcove they are just for decoration , if you want to keep out the light the windows have wooden shutters which give blackout conditions . All in all this is a budget hotel in a top area , if you want luxury in this area I would look elsewhere and have a healthy bank balance but this hotel did give you that traditional feel of Italy

This place is more like an "appartment" than a B&B. We stayed in room #4 which has two twin beds and is quite spacious. Upon arrival no one answered the door but when we called their number, someone came to help us within 5 minutes. My advice would be: make sure you have the phone number with you. I guess waiting, even if only for a few minutes, might not be nice when it's raining. We loved the wooden floor, the beautiful ceiling and decoration in the room (simple but in style with the old building) especially our chandelier :-). The bathroom is very modern but consists only of a toilet and shower. The wash basin is actually in the room itself, around a corner, which didn't bother us. There is a water cooker in the room but only tea, no (instant) coffee. So if you like to drink coffee, you have to bring your own. There are lots of TV channels but not a single English or other language one. The room is up a short flight of stairs and then a small elevator takes you further up. The location is just UNBELIEVABLE!!! A 5 minutes" walk from Palazzo Vecchio and 15 min to Ponte Vecchio. There is a taxi stand around the corner at Piazza della Repubblica. There are several good options for breakfast nearby. Would certainly recommend. Hard to beat the price and location!

This was the perfect place to stay for our family and totally made our visit in Florence. The hotel is centrally located, right down from Il Duomo, so we were able to walk everywhere easily. Marco, the owner, was so sweet and very welcoming when we arrived. Since there were three of us, we stayed on the 3rd floor apartment "Anna." We loved it, very spacious, with a full kitchen that has an extra pull out couch. The Master bedroom was huge and also had a pull out couch and a desk. It may sound corny but it really felt like we were getting a full Italian experience and we felt so comfortable for our three night there since we could cook, keep stuff in the fridge, and even do a load of laundry. Very clean and airy in the afternoon. A note to travelers: we are avid travelers with no accessiblity issues who don't expect frills since we spend the day exploring. This is not the place for you if you expect a fancy luxury hotel experience. Also, while there is a small elevator, it can not fit a wheelchair. We travel very light but it still took some effort to haul our bags up 3 narrow, concrete stair ways. Also, there is no air conditioning, but there is a fan in room. When we were there the temperature was in the 90s but it wasn't overwhelming in the room and once the sun begins to go down, you can open the windows to the Central courtyard and get a nice breeze. Will definitely recommend to friends!

Nice small boutique B&B. Check in was easy with everything explained and being personally shown around the hotel and to the room. The Superior room is exactly like the pictures, with a bathtub inside the room. Lots of space, large TV, and a bathroom with lots of mirrors! Lots of hot water, and the bath was great to use. Didn’t use it as a shower so can’t comment on the water pressure. Simple breakfast with pastries, cereal, spreads, yoghurt, juices, coffee, cold cuts etc served in the dining room. No staff onsite after 7pm, but there’s still little touches like mood lighting and music playing through the common areas.

Location is good especially for those who likes walking, it will take you 15-20 minutes to reach the Duomo. Staff is very welcoming and friendly: they gave us a map and gave some recommendations about main sights and places to eat. Our room was very cozy, beautiful and clean. Also, the building itself gives you very special atmosphere. There were two bottles of water and some cookies for free in the room while check-in. Breakfast was very good (served in the cafe 5 minutes walking from the hotel): juice, coffee and baked goods (2 pieces to choose). This hotel is a very good choice for its price!

We came with a very large group (21 people) and the staff was amazing! They went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience in Florence. If you're looking for restaurant recommendations, ask the staff! They were able to get us reservations at two really great restaurants. The rooms were simple, spacious, clean, and comfortable. It's not a luxury hotel, but it was perfect for our needs and you can't beat the price. It is about a 30 minute walk to the city center, but it's also located a mere 2 minute walk from a bus stop (line 22) that takes you directly into the city. We used the bus every day and so the distance wasn't an issue for us.

I wish I could rate A Florence View B&B 10 bubbles! We had a delightful stay there that was a highlight of our trip. Brother and sister Leonardo and Giuliana have created a wonderful B&B right in the middle of the action of Florence. Upon arrival, Leonardo provided a map of Florence but he did not just hand it over; he spent about 10 minutes marking points of interest on it, the explaining how to get there from the B&B--with an estimated walking time--and marking local restaurants he recommends. He also provided business cards of the restaurants. We went to the two restaurants he recommended, Trattoria da Guido and Ristorante il Caminetto, and had wonderful meals in both places. Take Leonardo's recommendations. Let's talk location: you are on the plaza of Il Duomo; the entrance to the hotel is ten yards from the southern doors of the Baptistry. You cannot be any more centrally located to all of the sights in Florence. The Accademia Gallery is a five-minute walk away, the Uffizi Gallery is 5-minute walk away, the Ponte Vecchio is a six--minute walk away, the Palazzo Vecchio is a four-minute walk away. I could go on but trust me when I say that the location could not be better. Our room was also incredible! It was much larger than expected, with a large bathroom, a large sitting room, a second sitting room with a day bed, and a bedroom. We also had a private balcony with a bistro set, providing a lovely place for late-afternoon wine drinking. The beds, including the day bed, were very comfortable and we all slept very well. The bathroom was completely updated and included a clothesline so we could wash clothes. (There is also a laundry nearby where you can leave your clothes to be washed.) In an absolutely wonderful surprise, breakfast is served in your room. Simply pop down to the kitchen door--a mere 10 steps away--to place your order, including yogurt options, juices, eggs, vegetables, meats, and coffees. We were shocked by the sheer number of options that we had and all of it was completely delicious. The meal was served on trays on very cute dishware with a rose. It was these details that made this place so very special. I do have a word of caution, though: like many old buildings in Europe, this one does not have an elevator for people. There is an elevator that Leonardo will use for your bags but you will need to walk up a few steep flights of stairs to get to your room. If you have physical limitations, I recommend letting Leonardo and Giuliana know before your visit to see if they can accommodate you. We had to leave very early so, in another example of their willingness to accommodate, Leonardo actually checked us out the night before. We were actually depressed to leave here because we had such a wonderful experience. There are not enough words to express how much I recommend A Florence View! We will definitely return!

It was great to be able to have a set apart wing with two rooms and two bathrooms which made it feel like a private, personal space. The rooms were spacious, airy and bright and reasonably well soundproofed against the noise from the street that comes from being in such a central location in a city where the streets are used as extensions of the bars and restaurants. The location was excellent though - ear plugs easily solved the problem of the noise for the light-sleeper in our group. Just a heads up, although we knew that we would be on the first floor and there is no elevator, we hadn't reckoned on the fact that the first floor in an old Venetian building means quite a few more steps that we are used to. However the stairs were wide and stone, so were able to cope with the dragging up and trundling down needed. The only real issue we had was when the taxi that was ordered did not arrive and with the reception not being open the whole day we had nobody to help sort it out for us. Our limited Italian and tight time frames meant this was a bit of a challenge but was thankfully resolved by a helpful concierge at another hotel down the road.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel last week. I always use trip advisor for recommendations and it’s always been on point and very helpful. This is the first time that I just don’t understand all these 5 star reviews. The hotel is on the 2nd floor of a residential building. When you walk into the building, there are stairs to get to the first floor. On the first floor there is a small elevator you can take to the hotel floor. Be prepared to carry your luggage up to the elevator. The room was big with high ceilings. The bathroom was a decent size as well. It seemed clean. The WiFi was a big problem as we couldn’t connect any devices due to their router having a problem. Luckily they had another room available and we were moved because that room had a stronger signal and because I needed the internet for work, I had to agree to pack our things and move. The second room was nicer. The design was better and it even had flowers which was a nice touch. They have a buffet breakfast with few choices and after the first few days, it wasn’t enjoyable because it was the same thing day after day. Bread, cereal, croissants, cheese, ham, Nutella, jam, fruits, juice. The dining area is nice. The biggest problem we had with the hotel was the smell. There was a smell as soon as you enter the hotel and it was even worse in the room and especially bathroom. In the bathroom was such a strong sewer smell. I was so disappointed. I’m not sure if the sewer issue is just in this hotel or others as well. The location was decent. It’s just a few minutes walk from the Santa Croce church and shops and restaurants. It’s about a 13 minute walk from the center where the Duomo is located. With all this being said, the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. They were willing to help with what’s needed.

It could not be better situated being a couple of hundred metres from the C1 bus stop. This bus runs a very frequent and reliable circular route right into the centre for €1:50.All the major attractions- Uffizi, Pitti Palace, Dome , Ponte a Vecchio are within easy walking distance from it's stops.

This place is literally 5 minutes walking, from S.M. Novella train station. We came out the front side of the station, walked across the street, turned the corner at the McDonald's, and walked a couple blocks to the hotel. This hotel is located in a square, that is pretty lively. There are plenty of dining options around, also a .99 cent store is on the plaza, an ATM, vendors selling souvenirs and snacks. The duomo is only 5 minutes walking, and Ponte Vecchio is about 10-15 minutes walking. I was given a room with a view of the duomo. How lovely was that! When i opened up the windows and shutters, the view over the piazza and the cupola of the duomo, was right at my fingertips. When i arrived, there was another guest checking in, so we sat and waited about 15 minutes, to be checked in. While we were waiting, a worker came to us and gave us a map, and explained where the sights were. He also took our bags to the room, and showed us what's what, in the room. Very nice guy. An older gentleman who was also very nice, checked us in, and went over our charges, breakfast options(5 or 6 eurs - boiled eggs, cold cereal, fruit, cold cuts), and told us to leave the key at the desk, when we leave. Since this hotel is 24 hours, there's always someone there to get the keys from, when you come back. We had a twin room and it was very clean. The only downside to this property, is that you have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the check in. Once there, you will be able to take a lift. Warning, the lift is very small... 2 people, 2 large luggage, take off backpacks and suck your stomach in. Other small con was, it's time for an update in the bathrooms. Don't get me wrong, the bathroom was very clean, but they're still using the green color sinks and toilets. All in all, we had a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to use this hotel again. You can't beat the location, the price to be in that location, and all that's nearby.

It is right across the Firenze Santa Maria Novella station (behind Burger king) so it very convenient for when you have to take the train to go to other places. train to the airport is also across the street. the building itself is old. what you see in the pictures is as is (minus the filter on the camera). they clean the rooms everyday. the sheets and towels though has that funny smell (that downy or fabric softeners could eliminate). the wash basin is too small so water splashes all over when we use it, also the faucet is wiggly i was kinda scared that it's going to get ripped-off. do not ever use the extra blanket on the dresser. i made the mistake of opening it intending to use it big mistake. it looks and smells like it has never been washed. it was dusty too. the elevator (lift) works and it is quirky like the kld lifts you see in old films. the receptionists (all 3 that we dealt with) were nice. the lady i met the first day (i dont know her name) was kind enough to let me into my room early (before the usual check-in time) since my room is ready. she did her best to explain everything and express herself to a non-Italian speaking/understanding tourist. the other 2 receptionist were pretty chill too. if you need a place to stay that is comfortable and affordable (with your own room and private bathroom) this is good enough. bring your own soap,shampoo etc. don't take anything from the fridge just buy your own water/pop/drinks from the grocery around the corner and it would be cheaper.

The breakfast is very rich. All the facilities in the room are free of charge. The water in the refrigerator is relatively small. The hotel is free. The location is great. It is right next to the bus station at the mall. There is a supermarket next to the hotel. It ’s very convenient. Too friendly "is that the shelf of hanging towels in the bathroom is too high. My feet are so strenuous enough to reach the Nordic feeling. It is really high. The body milk tastes good.

We stayed one night here as we wanted to do some sightseeing in Florence. It is situated conveniently to the sites, we were able to walk to the Uffizi Gallery and the city centre. The breakfast was absolutely lovely with a wide choice of things to choose from We were made to feel very welcome and our room was clean and comfortable. I highly recommend staying at this guest house. There is also secure parking available.

The host was wonderful and welcoming! The room was spacious and beautiful, and so was the view! The location was perfect, it is situated right in front of the Battistero and Church! The breakfast was great for the times we are in. The host brought it in at 8:30am everyday and it included croissants(chocolate and apricot), nutella, coffee and hot chocolate, yogurt, fruit, and an occasional sweet treat. Wonderful overall and I highly recommend staying here!

We stayed for 5 nights in the Palazzo Mannaioni Suites and were extremely glad we did. We were driving and found parking a couple of miles away at Parcheggio Via Del Gelsomino. If you drive into the city and hit a ZTL, you have the whole hassle of having to get your licence plate registered with the local police so you don't get fined, so it is much easier to park outside the city. This car park was only €15 per day (as opposed to garages in the city which would have cost €40 a day) and there is a bus stop right outside which takes you to within 5 minutes walk of the apartments. You do have to arrange almost exactly what time you will arrive with the reception, which can be tricky if you are delayed (they called us when we were less than 30 minutes later than we said, to check our arrival status) and they close at 7:30pm. The apartment was amazing, we were given a two bathroom split level place - kitchen, living area with TV and dining table, and bathroom with bathtub downstairs, huge bedroom and ensuite with shower only upstairs. All very clean and tidy. Towels are changed and bins emptied on the 4th day of any stay (so if you are there for 3 nights or less, it won't happen). The kitchen has pretty much everything you would need but doesn't supply any basics such as fresh milk, condiments, cooking oil etc. Good sized fridge, small freezer, very fast halogen hobs. A few small markets nearby to get supplies, but we only had breakfast there, too many places to eat out for lunch and dinner! Wifi is decent. As some have said, people above can be noisy if walking in hard shoes or scraping chairs, and we did get some noisy people staying in the apartment above after the 3rd night, loud conversations can easily be heard. Location wise, it is brilliant. Everything is walkable. Palazzo Pitti and Giardino di Boboli are less than 10 minutes away, as is the Ponte Vecchio. There's nothing you would really need to get public transport to, although the buses are frequent and punctual.

When booking accommodations for a week in Florence, I wanted a Tuscan feel. This B&B had this in droves, with beamed ceilings, terracotta tiled floor, shuttered windows, and incredible views onto the Duomo. The place, tastefully decorated with Florentine art, was immaculately clean, and the cleaning crew left the room spotless every day. The room was comfortable with lockable wardrobe and safe, generous-sized shower, and expected amenities for a B&B room, including tea service and travel-sized toiletries. The only problem was that the walls are rather thin, so in the evenings I heard a man having a very loud conversation (in Italian), but couldn't tell where he was. Breakfast was robust by Italian standards, with fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese, and sliced deli meats as well as a staggering array of pastries and sweets, as well as cold cereals, milk, coffee, tea, and juice. I know some other Americans complained about the lack of hot food, but that is quite uncommon for Italian breakfasts. The short hours for the front desk staff was at times difficult to handle (they are only there from 9am-noon and 3-8pm), especially if one needs assistance before striking out for Florence's sights, many of which open at 8:15. However, entry to the building (built in 1500!) and the very modern elevator was easy and appreciated. The B&B is well situated, with restaurants, shops, and a charming coffee shop all within a couple minutes walk.

Great 3 night stay....lovely large room...peaceful.....nice garden to have your breakfast or aperitif in....lovely bunch of people run it ....very helpful....helped me with printing train tickets and also asked whether we needed a taxi booked on departure.. it is very close to everything to visit in Florence .....only drawback.: it takes 20 mns to walk to the station and is convoluted so - take a taxi....only 12-15 euros..especially if you have heavy suitcases and are not familiar with the layout of Florence

We came to Florence for one day but decided to stay over night. After doing some research. I stumbled upon the Relais and found the reviews to be good and for the price I paid it was well worth it. The only thing is you may miss it. It is right next to the two Italian Restaurants near the Michael Angelo. It was a little confusing getting into the building it says to ring the bell 64 but what you don’t realize is there is a little key symbol which has to be pressed also. We stayed on the 5th floor in room 505 which has amazing views of the Micael Angelo and the Duomo. The room is very clean and spacious with a beautiful bathroom a huge tub there is also amenities there a small burner and fridge. The bed is very comfortable. This to me was prime location to everything right outside the door. The Italian restaurant next door is a must. Delicious. Don’t look any further book this place trust me you will not be disappointed .

Campo di Marte
Booked this spot last minute after we decided to stop in Florence for a night. Had a car so knew we wanted to be outside city center, but close enough to walk in. Villino Fiorentino advertises free parking, and otherwise totally reasonable rates, so it seemed like a no-brainer. First, the positives: Location is great, a 15 minute stroll into the historic (and amazing) city center. I think you can take a tram or a bus to expedite the journey, but the walk was easy as well. The room was spacious and functional (though the bathroom was teeeny). The building itself is charming. The Negatives: We arrived after 6pm and at no point were told that there would be no one to check us in, so we were locked out for a while. I finally turned on my US cell phone to make an international call to the hotel, and the lady told me she had just left. (Admittedly, we were running late and had anticipated getting in around 5:30.) The lady had apparently sent me an email with the code on how to get in, but i hadnt turned on my data or wifi while driving, so didnt see it. It is something that could have been communicated when we made our reservation. One of the other negatives was the "free parking". There is reasonably space for 3 cars, thought you can fit 5 or 6 in there if you block in others. We parked fine, but the next morning other guests asked us to move our car so that they could prepare to depart (even though we were leaving at the same time-- and oddly we werent even blocking their car...) It was just inconvenient and there is no one there working to really manage the cars blocking each other. What if we had left early in the morning to walk around the city? Finally, the room we had was right next to the breakfast room (which was just OK, not great, not terrible), so when the nice lady starting preparing breakfast before 8am, we were awoken by the noise. It is not a place to stay if you want to sleep in! Would likely stay somewhere else if i had time to plan, but this spot was fine for what we needed, despite the hiccups.

A €15 cab ride from the Santa Maria Novella train station, I arrived to Palazzo San Niccolò just before a plethora of other guests. More like a B&B than a hotel, I was ushered into the building and out of the rain by a friendly housekeeper, who offered me a coffee or a tea, and who asked me to please wait for about 10 minutes so that reception could come to greet me. I chatted with a few other guests. Like everything in Italy, one just goes with the flow. And anyway, in spite of my exhaustion of two days of straight travel on planes, trains and automobiles, the room I was waiting in was pleasant, with velvet couches and a beautiful bar, with soaring ceilings that made me recall again the line: “It is fate, but call it Italy if it pleases you, Vicar.” And: complimentary coffee. How delightful! Shortly thereafter, I was warmly greeted by reception, and was told that breakfast downstairs is €10, and it’s €12 in the room. We settled up my €6 Euro city tax and €2 state tax, and was shown to my room after a quick tutorial on how to use the keys and the locks on the front portone and gate. There is no elevator, but I was kindly assisted with my suitcase, and on the way up, was informed that there is self-use laundry in the basement, for which you can buy a laundry token for €3.50 at the front desk. And also, there is a place downstairs to re-fill the water bottles in the fridge - sparkling or still, so to please not throw them away when I finished with them. I was told that for a two-night stay that they don’t re-make up the room. As I paid for a double, but I was alone, I already had two days of towels, which was my main concern. Though, I was sad to only have one set of toiletries and I always use up something. And I really liked the shampoo and bath gel. If you were staying with children or for longer than a few days, you may find the tiny kitchenette useful. I prefer to eat out when on vacation and Italy (I mean...the FOOD is amazing!). The toiletries provided were The Rerum Natura, in delightful scents: Shampoo: lavender with bitter orange leaf Body Wash: citrus rind with guiaic wood Conditioner: lemongrass with vetyver Hand soap: citrus Also provided: -Hairdryer -Single use slippers -Shampoo -Conditioner -Bath gel -Small hand soap -Shower Cap -Vanity Kit -All basic kitchen utensils, plates, wine glasses, coffee cups, etc. the room was equipped with a mini fridge, and two hot-plate-like burners for cooking. The shower had a great rain shower head. In my room(s), the sleeping area had plenty of closet space. The area adjacent to the kitchenette had a small kitchen table with stools. A small living area had two chairs, a couch, and a coffee table. It was nothing fancy, but it was very functional and local. The sheets on my bed were lovely, and the room was a nice temperature. There was a full length mirror by the bed, but it was so close to the bed that there wasn’t much room to maneuver. The staff surprised me with a bottl

Stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is small but lots of pro’s and would recommend. Very close to SM Novella train station. Essentially across the street. We walked with 2 large suitcases and found it easy enough to get here. The location is good, essentially about a 5 minute walk to the Duomo and the main sights of Florence are all within easy walking distance. Staff were all friendly and pleasant. Our room was nice and spacious (loved the high ceilings!). The decor is classic (maybe a little dated) but added to the charm of the hotel. The breakfast is lovely purely for the setting. There is a few tables out on the terrace which was nice to sit out on each morning. There is a plenty of the usual Italian offerings. The A/C in the room was good and easy to operate. We found this very quiet at nights and couldn’t hear any noise. Would definitely recommend people to stay here!

We stayed 9 days at Leone Blu Suites and were so pleased with the Suites. Anastasia, Francesco and Valentina at the front desk were so professional, welcoming and helpful to us during our stay - they helped us with dinner reservations (and even helped me locate the scarf that I left at a restaurant!) The breakfast was fantastic - so many options offered - and a beautiful breakfast room (complete with classical music) with windows overlooking the Arno to enjoy every morning. The suite we stayed in was incredibly spacious - a huge separate sitting room with desk, couch, coffee table and a side windowsill that gave us room to make coffee (nespresso type machine) and tea, and to set out the wine and limoncello that we bought. The location is fantastic - so close to Il Duomo and the other main tourist sites on the North side of the river, but just as close to the south side (Santo Spirito area) as well. We recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Florence.
