I had a delightful stay at Il Grillo di Firenze, and enjoyed my morning conversations with Lara over coffee. She was very eager to help me make appointments at museums and other attractions, and I would certainly recommend the view of the mountains from the terrace! For a solo budget traveler, I found the Coop grocery store just down the... More

Stayed here last summer, and found it to be a spotless, efficient accommodation. Lara was an incredibly gracious hostess--she helped us book a tour, gave us recommendations on destinations and restaurants, and was the only hotel who contacted us well in advance of our trip (and recommended we book our train tickets in advance to staff us issues). We speak... More

Il Grillo is a very simple, very clean and extremely friendly Florentine B&B. Lara and Lorenzo are wonderful hosts and can't do enough for you. They make you good coffee in the morning. The breakfasts were not our preference as they contained too much packaged cakes etc. However, they offered a good choice and were so kind and generous with... More

We spent 17 days at this B&B. Lara and Lorenzo, the owners, are super friendly and always ready to meet your needs.  The hotel is super clean; I mean, spotless! The balcony is very spacious, the beds are nice and comfortable, and the hosts are super nice! Definitely a place to stay since it is 10 minutes from the historic Florence.

We booked this BnB based on Trip Advisor ratings. Lara was an excellent host. She even met us after I asked to check in early because my wife was feeling ill. Breakfast was great and she made great American coffee. Thanks Lara, for the wonderful stay.

I really enjoyed the two nights I spent at this B&B in Florence and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive, convenient and quality accommodation. The room with bathroom was very nice, comfortable and clean and had its own balcony. The B&B has a large common area to eat breakfast (very good) or just sit on the huge... More

Balkony was very nice and big! You can ask from Lara everything for helping. You can buy directly bus daily ticket, parking daily ticket at the hotel. She reserved us a ticket for Uffizi and Accademy. It was a great helping for us! Thank you! I kindly recommend to everybody!

Lara is a fantastic hostess, she sets an amazing breakfast. Best coffee in Florence. She was very helpful on any of visiting the local sites, and the buses to take. (Bus 22 is the main one.) This was my jumping off point to Pisa, Sienna, etc. It was like coming home in the evening, Her husband Lorenzo was as helpful,... More

Lara makes everything comfortable & welcoming. Great apartment, (spotless!) is well located for the short bus-ride to the centre. Any advice you need is readily available and the local pizzeria is excellent. Eight female friends stayed, for a Birthday weekend, all agreeing that nothing could be improved!
