Pros: Very helpful hosts- gave us the run down of the city. We weren't in Florence for very long and had nothing planned. They basically gave us our entire itinerary which was very valuable to us and allowed us to maximize our time. Clean and spacious rooms! Provided filtered water every night. Cons: If you are wanting to walk to... More

We stayed in the blue room for 3 nights in May. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom is across the hall, but it was fine as it was only for us. Heads up- the hair dryer doesn't really work, so be prepared to go without it or have a lot of patience. The hosts were so helpful and... More

We stayed here in the Red Room in May 2014 for four nights. When we first arrived, Sandra was very welcoming and took the time to sit down with us and a map and show us relevant transportation, where all the big sites were, food recommendations, etc. This was invaluable to us for our stay in Florence. It is just... More

We stayed here in May 2014 for 3 nights and it was perfect. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome, given all the information about places to visit and eat. The B&B is in a safe neighbourhood and a short walk from the train station. The room was spacious, clean and had a decent air condition. In... More

We had a wonderful 5 night stay here. The rooms were always extremely clean. We spent a lot of time on the terrace. It was a nice quiet place to start and end our day. We had some passport problems and Sandra and Paulo were very helpful. They helped get our forms printed which took more time than it should... More

Sandra is a wonderful host. She was most helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations and general advice. The B&B is lovely and convenient - 20 minutes walk to Il Duomo, or 5 minutes to the bus. The room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. High recommended!

Paolo and Sandra make you feel at home from the beginning. Thank you again for your warm hospitality. Also the recommendations what to see and do in Firenze and Tuscany in general were relly helpful. The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished. Sandra's coffee is excellent. The only thing improvable is maybe the breakfast. Some fresh bread or fruits... More

From the moment we reached Sandra B&B we felt the warm hospitality extended by Sandra & Paolo. The location is quiet and very well connected to all major attractions. Sandra's coffee was simply superb and we looked forward to it every morning :) The room was elegantly decorated and well-furnished; the bathroom very well equipped. We felt so welcome and... More

My wife and I spent the last week of June at Sandra´s B&B and we had a very enjoyable experience. First, it is not downtown where the myriads of tourists can be an inconvenience. It is in a quiet neighborhood, yet you can walk or take any of several buses (I used number 4) to the touristic attractions. The place... More

Beautifully furnished room (the red room) with king size bed, quality fixtures and fittings, spacious modern bathroom and plenty of storage. This is a very good spot to stay in Florence - a little away from the main tourist spots but a comfortable walk or a short bus ride on No. 13 or 20 which stop nearby. Sandra and Paolo... More
