This is a great B&B with comfortable rooms and excellent service from the owner Lara. Beautiful large outdoor balcony with plenty of seating. Great breakfast each morning with great Cappuccino. Host and owner Lara was fantastic and a great source of where to dine and how to get around Florence. The bus stop is right outside and laundry is across... More

hostess Lara was simply amazing! Highly recommend this place! We have just returned from the beautiful Florence and we totally loved our stay at the B&B “Il grillo di Firenze”. Lara & Lorenzo are so very welcoming, friendly and helpful ! We were given some good ideas for sightseeing places and public transportation. Breakfast was really good too.

Really enjoyed our stay at Il Grillo di Firenze, it is very welcoming place to stay and it is not too far away from the city if you like a walk like us (about 20mins from the train station). The area around the B&B is very good with a Pizzeria and Supermarket just round the corner. The room itself was... More

We are a family of 3 and stayed in a triple room. We liked that the B&B had lift access, was clean, air conditioned and each room had a private bathroom. Breakfast is basic but adequate and consists of coffee, yoghurt, spreads, bread, packaged biscuits and some cheese and ham. We also appreciated that the beds were made every day.... More

Everything about this charming B&B is excellent and more than expected. Starting from Lara, the owner and incredible hostess! Very friendly, sweet, helpful and caring. The place is super clean and accomodating, with everything brand new and convenient. Beautiful rooms with A/C, TV, free Wi-Fi, bathrooms and even a charming terrace! Delicious breakfast included and nice location outside from the... More

Lara is a wonderful host and an excellent communicator, she made us comfortable and gave us detailed maps for sightseeing and suggestions for dining, she even went out of her way to make sure there was an early breakfast for us as we had an early flight the next morning. The room was clean and well appointed and the common... More

This pensione in Florence was the perfect fit for my mother and I!! The hosts Lara and Lorenzo were kind, detail oriented and extremely attentive to our every need. The room we shared was quiet, clean and simple. Lara was always available to give us maps, explain how to get certain places, make suggestions on where to get the best... More

I was thrilled to find a B&B which could accommodate a family of 5 in one room. While not a large room, the direct access to the balcony provided extra space to relax at the end of the day. Lara provided a nice breakfast with delicious cappuccino or coffee (and always asked if we wanted another cup!) She was very... More
