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!

The B&B is located a little ways away from the center of town but it was walkable. We were able to walk to all the sites we wanted to see and to the train station. Several good restaurants are located right next to the B&B and several more are just minutes away. If walking isn't in your plans the B&B... More

Our recent stay at Il Grillo was wonderful. When we arrived, Lara greeted us and went over a map of Florence and helped us book a day trip for wine tasting. She was there with breakfast each morning and fabulous cappuccino. The B&B is spotless and just a 10 minute bus ride to the train station. Fabulous pizza place and... More

I travelled in Italy for 16 days and stayed in 5 different hotels and this is the one that I enjoyed most. The design of the B&B is like a large modern apartment. You have your own ensuite within the apartment. The photos on tripadvisor and the web of this B&B belies the actual feel of it. Though it looked... More

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
