This B&B is a very good option to stay in Florence. It is located around 15-20 min walk from Ponte Vecchio, but there is a bus stop just outside the main entrance. It is clean and the staff is very friendly (cheers to Antonio and Silvia!). I liked the breakfast. It includes juices, many options in a coffee machine, breads,... More

Thank you very much! We are glad you enjoyed our breakfast. And yes, it is actually very easy to reach the city center with the bus =) or also walking if it is a nice weather. Hope the best for you, and we would be happy to see you again! Big hug from Florence, Antonio and Silvia. More

Nice cosy room, host was great! Booked with breakfast, can say much about it. Like it that there are tea/coffee/ water provided throughout the day. Wifi was weak. Stairs up was tedious with luggage. Not suitable for family with big luggage.

Hi Mandy, We are sorry if the WI FI was a little low. It was a temporary problem maybe. About the elevator, it is written both on our website and on Booking.com that we don't have one! It is an ancient building. Anyway, we hope you enjoyed your trip and had a nice time here. Greetings from all the staff. More

Nice friendly staff, nice breakfast and nice room, comfy beds. Shower wasn't clean though, a lot of mould. This was such a let down as everything else was great, the location suited us as we had a rented car so it was 15 min walk along the river to the centre.

Everything was charming in this hotel! The room perfectly decorated, very warm and cosy, it made me want stay more than one night! The lady at the reception was very helpful with directions about where to eat or park the car. Public parking is just in front of the hotel and it's free at night. Breakfast was a surprise, as...

My friend and I have just spent a week at this delightful B&B. As previously mentioned, this B&B is run by a young couple and has six rooms. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathroom (while tiny) has everything one could want. The beds are comfortable and we slept well every night. The best part of this place are... More

This is a B & B on the south side of Florence near the Arno, one floor up from street level (no lift), with six rooms. The young couple running it are very kind and the service is invariably helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable, a good size, airy and light, with heating and air conditioning as required, on... More

Staff was very helpful and nice. Great value and I liked the location just outside the city. A wonderful food market to eat in or take out right across the street. Bus service stop in front to take you anywhere you'd like to go. I will be back ! Ciao

This was the second time we booked Sognando Firenze, and we were not disappointed. I was with my husband and 2 daughters, and when we arrived we were indicated to stay at a separated building, at Ferruch Hotel, not far from the one we stayed in 2012. But we had a very good surprise, the room was even better than... More

The rooms were spacious and decorated with good taste. The location was very convenient, a 15 minute walk to the old center. Nicoleta, the owner of the place is a very nice person and gave us a lot of useful information about what to see, what to eat, what to avoid in the city. The breakfast was delicious and diverse....

We stayed two nights in florence part of a ten day italy roadtrip. The rooms are very nice large and spacious, but the thing that bothered me the most is that there was almost no water pressure in the shower... really sucks to come back to the room after a long day of travel and not have a good shower...
