This bnb is just as described. Welcoming, comfortable, clean and very, very well located. Even at peak times the bus will have you at the Duomo in 10 minutes. When we're back in Florence we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Being slightly away from the centre gives easy access to really good 'neighbourhood' restaurants - good food at decent prices... More

Needed just one night in Florence before moving on to our Tuscany villa. We were so happy with our stay, we tried to get another night later in our trip. Unfortunately, there was no availability. Lorenzo and Lara were very welcoming and made us feel comfortable all through our brief stay. The terrace off our room was a lovely place... More

I absolutely loved my stay at this incredibly cuddly and family-like B&B run by a wonderfully warm, honest & lovely "mamma Fiorentina". She greeted me at my arrival w/ a big smile, a WiFi pass & sat me down and explained how to visit all the places I absolutely had to see. The rooms are perfect, simple, very clean &... More

Lara could not have been more helpful. Our stay was an absolute pleasure. Lovely breakfast, close to centre - easy walking distance or right on bus route. A place I can recommend without hesitation. We will be back.

After reading many many reviews of small hotels and B&B's in Florence, we chose Il Grillo di Firenze based on the experiences of others here on Trip Advisor. Although we travel to Europe every year for 3 weeks, we had never been to Italy. What a pleasant surprise we found at this remarkable B&B. Everything that has been written about... More

Just a 10 minute bus ride from Santa Maria Novella rail station, this is a great base to stay and sightsee Florence. Lara is very welcoming and friendly and multi-lingual. The room was comfortable, clean with an excellent bathroom. You could sit on the balcony for breakfast if you wished with coffee on tap. She is very knowlegeable and helpful... More

Easy to find by car's GPS, we were buzzed into the building by Lorenzo and took the small lift up. We were greeted by pleasant, welcoming hosts and roomy, bright, sparkling clean air conditioned rooms with private ensuite bathroom and balcony. The common area kitchen where breakfast is served is also bright and clean with tables indoors and outdoors on... More

I chose Il Grillo Firenze because of the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and they were right! My stay exceeded my expectations. On arrival Lara gave me all the information I needed on Florence and booked a day trip for me and Lorenzo made my coffee and breakfast every day! The balcony was lovely for breakfast looking over the rooftops to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in Florence, and right away we knew we made the right choice. As soon as we walked through the door Lorenzo welcomed us with a warm smile, sat us in the lovely kitchen/dining area, and got us a tea and coffee. He took the time to go through the city map...

This is an outstanding B&B, from the time we arrived we were treated extremely well. The rooms, common area kitchen and patios are extremely clean. The kitchen is well equipped. Lara and her husband were very helpful with our planning of sights to see and buses to take. There are maps and tourist literature available. The breakfasts were plentiful with... More
