I must echo all the previous reviews by saying just how pleased we were to have chosen this. Martine and Irene were so friendly and helpful and the location is close to the centre and to the station with good bars and restaurants very close although we also tried some of Martine's other eating suggestions. We thought our room was... More

Great property, great location, great hosts. We enjoyed our stay at Locanda Dei Poeti and only wished we had longer in Florence. The room we had was very spacious, and very well presented. We weren't disappointed one bit in this B&B. There are plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants in the surrounding streets and a 5-15 minute walk in any direction... More

I've got nothing but praise for this B&B in which I stayed for 3 nights with my boyfriend. The location is great (an approx. 10 minute walk from the city centre) and our stay couldn't have been better. We were able to park our car in a nearby garage for 21 euros a day (expensive but normal for Florence). We... More

On arrival we were immediately given a warm and friendly welcome and loads of helpful information about sights to see and recommended restaurants and so on. The room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The place was only a short walk from the train station and many of the attractions of the city center. We enjoyed our stay and the... More

We received very warm hospitality from Martina and Irene during our stay in this B&B. It was one of the greatest places we have chosen. As it was a family run business, Martina texted us beforehand to find out what time we were arriving so that she can be at the place to wait for us. Upon arrival, she helped... More

We met with the hostess Martina upon our arrival. She was very pleasant and the B&B was very clean and well setup. The location was so central and easy to get to anything. She gave great references to different parts of town and local attractions. Loved it.

We were here for three days and had a great time.Five minute walk to train station, beautifully decorated, decent size rooms. Friendly staff. Lives up to all of the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. Walking distance to everything,if you get the chance go to the food market nearby the upstairs restaurants are great fun!!

From the moment we arrived, Martina could not have been more helpful. Her English is excellent...luckliy because my Italian is average at best! We arrived early and Martina stored our bags so we could wander Florence. She recommended a range of breakfast, lunch and dinner options all of which were great. The room was lovely. Nicely appointed, fresh paint work... More

Close to train station and close to the Duomo. This was our first trip to Florence and it is very easy to get around. Staying at the Locanda Dei Poeti was like having our own apartment. Very stylishly decorated and quiet. Kitchen on each floor for making coffee and snacks. Common room available with a computer for checking on train... More

We stayed for 2 nights and would not hesitate to return. In a fantastic location close to the train station, only a few minutes walk from the duomo and with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Our room was beautifully decorated and very clean, and at the back of the building so very quiet. The little kitchenette was a nice... More
