As a solo traveller I loved this B&B and I felt incredibly safe. Alain and Letizia were so helpful and very accommodating, and quite relaxed upon my check-out about me enjoying the terrace before my train. My favourite part was upon my arrival when Letizia provided me with a map and marked out the best route to each monument/site of... More

We had an excellent stay at Letizia's B&B. Communicating with her and her husband was easy and helpful. Letizia made sure to be there when we were arriving. She gave a thorough description of everything in the B&B that may have been useful for us, as well as a great guide of what to do in Florence. The room was... More

Based on the number of positive reviews, I was looking forward to staying at this B&B. Maybe I was expecting too much, but I was really quite disappointed in this property. I will start with the positive aspects. The location is fantastic. You can't get much better than this. It is far enough away from the heart of the city... More

Hi, Thanks for your review and to be honest, we are surprised at it. We respect each one’s opinion, but we think there is some confusing part hereby. One should be disappointed if he didn’t receive what was promised or what he originally booked. Let’s look at your case, you’ve received more than what you’ve booked: We have got a... More

This was a fantastic B and B with the added excellence of a fantastic host Alain. I emailed him directly before our stay and he could not have been more helpful, directions, bus advice, train advice and museum booking advice. While we were at the hotel he was just as helpful. Giving us a guided tour and helping us with... More

Alain is most wonderful. He gave us a perfect introduction to the place and the check in experience was the best I've ever received. Far better than at the famous-for-service Indian full service hotels. The recommended dinner and lunch places offered authentic Italian food that simply enhanced the experience. The place itself was wonderfully located...river flowing right in front, Duomo... More

The location of this B & B is wonderful - on the south side of the Arno, across the river from the Uffizi, near the Ponte Vecchio, and easily accessible from the train station by city bus. The rooms are large with great views. Alain was very helpful both before our arrival and once we were there with a variety... More

Great place to stay right across from the Uffici Gallery, close to everything. Location was perfect for touring the city. Odor in parlor area did not get to our room, but sewage odor is a problem all over Florence as sewers are not properly vented. There are 65 steps, (one for every year, I've lived on this earth), are a... More

In so many ways this was an excellent stay. Superb location, great views over the city, really close to Piazza Michelangelo, on the south side of the Arno so really nice for being a bit detached from the main touristy centre while enjoying the access and views. Alain was superb. Corresponded really well with us before visiting, in text contact... More

This bed and breakfast is situated ideally next to the Ponto Vecchio and other central attractions in Florence. The rooms are spacious, quiet and good value for money. Our host Alain was also very helpful in providing local advice and assisting us to have a pleasant stay. The downsides are that the breakfast is very simple and worse than others... More

Please let me make this clear - we did not stay at this B&B so I can't comment on the actual quality of the accommodation. But I want to thank Alain for his professionalism in dealing with a guest who had to cancel a reservation. I had emailed Alain and Letizia enquiring about availability at Il Magnifico. Alain responded promptly... More
