My family and I stayed here for three days and absolutely loved it! Lorenzo and Lara are extremely welcoming and friendly. When we first arrived Lorenzo brought out a map and circled for us can't-miss places to visit and also explained the best buses to take throughout the city. The bus to get into the center of Florence is literally... More

I can't even begin to say enough about our stay at this little b&b in Florence. But I'll try! We've been traveling all over Western Europe this summer for 6 weeks and after reading reviews, I was most excited about this stay, and it didn't disappoint! We experienced an excellent stay the days prior in venice in similar accommodations, but... More

The rooms were clean, tidying spacious. The owners are friendly and incredibly helpful in helping you get your bearings in the city and the breakfast is fine. If you stay here get a bus day pass to get around the city as its a bit of a walk from the centre. Day passes for a couple/family are on €6.

4 nice days in this bed&breakfast a bit off center of Firenze, but very easily reachable by bus. Simple breakfast which you could take on a very nice terrace. The rooms, bathroom and the common kitchen were always clean. Incredibly nice hosts which made my stay very enjoyable. Lorenzo and Lara are friendly, competent and always ready to help.

The main city center is 10 mins or less by bus that stops right outside. The host Lara is very personal and helpful. She gave us a ton of details on what to see. We checked in early and it was no problem (and had breakfast on the check-in day as well). The fresh hot Cappuccinos were great. The room... More

If all you want is a bed in a clean room then stay here. The friendly welcome, tourist information, nice breakfast, access to a kitchen and a terrace all come as free add-ons. For the price you cannot expect to be in the centre of town so just hop on the number 22 bus outside of the train station and... More

Great place (clean, easy to get to) , great help, feeling like home and family. Lara sent my phone back to me when i forgot it in the room. Thanks to her recommendations we had a great experience in Florence.

It's in an apartment block on the sixth floor, although there is a lift. It is a 25 minute walk from the train station but there are plenty of buses that stop nearby. We had room 2 which had a small double bed although it was comfortable enough. Breakfast was disappointing, little variation and quality was lacking, as was a... More

This place was the best of our entire trip across four countries. Lara and Lorenzo were so friendly and helpful. They showed us the places to see on the maps, got us set to ride the buses and arranged a taxi for our departure. Two lovely people. I will be back to this place and will recommend to all my...
