Don't stay anywhere else than this place. So beautiful it's hard to imagine. If they had more stars I would give them an 11! If you wanted to you could stay right there the entire time. Guitar room, kitchenette, fantastic Internet, business center. Everything. Thanks Martina! Xoxoxo!

We had a great stay at Locanda. One of the owners, Martina, was very kind to receive us and introduce us to Firenze. We visited some of her suggestions for sights and food and were glad we did. The place is not luxurious, but we did not expect that, and found it reasonable compared to the price, especially given the... More

When checking Locanda Dei Poeti, our room was not ready therefore, the front desk employee offered us some delicious café. They held onto our luggage while we went out for lunch. After lunch, we returned to a beautiful room. We had the romantic room. The room was certainly decorated to fit the name. The common “kitchen” area was right outside... More

When I ordered this bed and breakfast, most hotels within our budget in Florence was fully booked and I needed to stay in Florence for a 5 days to use it as our base to visit neighboring cities and towns like Siena, Chianti, San Gimignano and Lucca. Luckily, there was still a room available here. There is no elevator and... More

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.
