Its difficult to add to the many brilliant reviews that Il Grillo has received as most adjectives have been used.This is the type of place we have looked to stay on our many visits to Italy,right in the heart of Italian life.The b+b is situated at the top of an apartment block where you are amongst everyday locals.Our room was...

What a wonderful place to stay. Lara and Lorenzo were so nice and helpful arranged everything for. Room was small but they made very good use of the space and had everything you needed. They also had the best coffee! Thank you very much I would not stay anywhere else in Florence definitely 5 star service!

While I was only in Florence for 2 days we had a great time! Lara was so helpful in making sure we arrived okay and gave great directions. It was a quick 7-10 minute bus ride over to the building Il Grillo di Firenze is located in. Lara then sat down with us to go over a map where she... More

When I was looking for an accommodation for my trip Florence my priorities were comfy bed, clean room and reasonable price. Il Grillo di Firence gives you not only that, but so much more. Lara and Lorenzo are such lovely hosts, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast selection is good compared to the price, with toast, bread, yogurt, cornetto, muesli,... More

We stayed two nights at Il Grillo. Rooms are nice but on the small side. Our bathroom was tiny in Room 3. Two has a bigger bath and a balcony. Breakfast was modest. Lara was quite helpful with tips on tourism in Florence. It took us about 30 minutes to walk to city center, but buses also are convenient once... More

A short ride from the Santa Maria Novella station, Lara is extremely helpful with bus passes and information on where to go and what to see. This was our first experience at a B & B and at first I wasn 't sure but Lara put all my concerns at ease.

Lara and her husband were amazing hosts and were super helpful everyday with planning our trip. Talking with Lara just about her life and Italian culture was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Rooms are nice, nothing over the top. It is a bit of a walk to Florence's center, however it was nice to get... More

Lara and Lorenzo were great host. They provide us with great information about the area and the breakfast had a wide variety of food. The rooms were good size and fairly recently updated. The bus stop was near the front of the building, very convient. There's a grocery store only a few blocks away and ATM at the store and... More

lara and Lorenzo are the perfect hosts. Genuine, kind, friendly and super helpful. Truly makes the world of a difference when you are in a totally new environment. Such lovely people deserve more than 5 stars! My husband and I stayed here for a short 2 nights but their welcoming attitude will definitely last us for a long long time.... More

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
