Positive Reviews

An excellent location

The location is what really sells this bed and breakfast. Guests love having the ability to walk to some of the city's most famous sights as well as being close to the market and numerous restaurants. With the train station just five minutes away it's a great base for getting around Florence and some rooms offer beautiful views out towards the Duomo.

Accommodating staff

The staff are friendly and approachable, with many guests singling out those on the front desk as being especially helpful. The walking tours run by the hotel' owner have been described as insightful and outstanding.

Reasonable price

The combination of service, breakfast and location means that overall guests feel that this hotel offers good value for money.

Negative Reviews

A noisy area

If you prefer to sleep with a window open then this hotel may not be suitable for you as the noise from the street can get a bit much. Guests have also mentioned that the interior walls are quite thin which is inconvenient if you have noisy neighbours.

Basic amenities could be better

A common problem here is the weak Wi-Fi signal and temperamental in-room amenities. Guests would appreciate tea and coffee making facilities in the room as well as something to help keep the mosquitos at bay.

Compact rooms need better care

The size of the rooms can be an issue here, especially for larger groups, and the small bathrooms are problematic. Several guests have said the furniture is outdated and not particularly comfortable while others have questioned the quality of the cleaning, even claiming to have found bed bugs in some of the rooms.
