We recently had a pleasant stay at Il Grillo. I'll list some things that most travelers will appreciate. 1. The beds are comfortable and it is really QUIET compared to most European hotels. 2. Lara and Lorenzo are terrific friendly hosts who can offer lots of useful information. 3. There are a variety of good local restaurants in the neighborhood... More

Lara & Lorenzo are very welcoming, friendly and helpful with where to go and what to see in Florence. There is a bus (no 22 that stops a few steps outside). There is a local restaurant which is FAB (we ate there every night). The B & B is very clean and well equipped with a lovely option to sit... More

こちらのB&Bは本当にお勧めです。 フィレンツェサンタマリマノヴェッラ(Firenze S.M.N)駅からは徒歩約25分、もしくは22番か57番のバス(割と頻繁に運行しています)で5分強で到着します。建物の最上階に位置していますが、エレベーターもあるので大きな荷物でも問題ありません。白を基調とした清潔感があるお部屋で、必要なものは全て揃っています。wifiも全く問題なく使用出来ます。 中心部にも近く、スーパーやレストランなども周辺にいくつかありますので、非常に便利です。何より、オーナーのLaraさんが本当に親切で良い方です。到着日には色々とフィレンツェの街の事を説明してくれて、地図にメモを書き込んでくださいました。またフィレンツェに行く機会があれば、是非お世話になりたいです! I really enjoyed my stay here in Il Grillo di Firenze. The room is clean and neat. It took 25min on foot or 10min by bus from Firenze SMN station. There are some stores and restaurants near the B&B, so it's very convenient place to stay in. And what I most impressed was Lara! She is... More

We loved our 2 nights in Florence at Lara's B&B. We arrived late from Siena because of flooding which caused public transport chaos in and around Siena. Lara was quick to reassure us that our room would be waiting for us regardless of our delayed arrival. She gave us excellent directions for catching the bus from the train station (... More

From the moment you walk into Il Grillo, you know you have discovered a little gem. Everything is bright, clean smelling, and welcoming. Lara is a wonderful hostess and she wins you over with her first smile. Both her and her husband are accommodating, attentive, warm, helpful, and very friendly. The location of this B&B is ideal, as there is... More

John and I were on our honeymoon and I have to admit, this was one of our favorite hotels on our trip of Italy. Lara was an amazing host with so much helpful information about Florence. There were a couple of authentic Italian restaurants close by including a supermarket that we picked up wine every night! I felt like a... More

We stayed for one night in Florence. In short, Lara is very sweet, and we liked the breakfast. The bathrooms and room are clean! Bed is a little small for two people but we were okay with that. Internet worked well! I wish we could have stayed longer in Florence, but this place was perfect for the one night we... More

Thank you to Lara who made our stay in Florence as enjoyable as possible. The rooms were large enough, very clean and ours opened onto a lovely balcony area. Lara made us feel very welcome and provided a lot of info on what to see and do and how to get there by public transport. She also made bookings for... More

I went to Florence with my mum so I was apprehensive about whether we had a nice place to stay. I needn't have worried - we had a lovely stay at Il Grillo.
