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

My husband and I together with another couple who are our friends were transferred from Rome to Florence. We arrived at around 6:30 p.m. and Lorenzo welcomed us downstairs and helped us with our luggages. After checking in, he offered us beverages, got a map and showed us how to get around. He is very charming, helpful and friendly. Following... More

This B&B is our first and last stop in Italy. The hostess Lara is really friendly, considerate and informative. With the room ready in the morning on our first day in Italy, we were able to rest after the long flight. The room is really clean and the breakfast is very good. The location is convenient for those who come... More

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
