My husband and I stayed three nights at this wonderful bed and breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay. Upon arriving, we had our bags carried up the steps for us, and the owners went over all of Florence and good places to eat. They recommended a pizza place down the street that I hated, so don't go there! But everywhere... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights. Upon arrival. Riccardo and Ilaria welcomed us and Riccardo inquired about what we wanted to do while in Florence and then gave us a detailed and very helpful overview and map of how to get around the city to the sites we wanted to see and suggestions of where to eat at various...

We stayed 2 nights in Florence at Piccolo Principe and we have been delighted by Ilaria and Riccardo's hospitality as well as the quality of accommodations. We had a duplex room for 5 and the flat is ideally situated. We will remember the good cappucinos kindly prepared by Riccardo at breakfast time on the terrasse. We do recommend this great... More

The location of this wonderful place is quiet and traffic free. It is residential, but there are several great restaurants nearby. Our room looked out on the terrace and clean, well-kept house tops and roof gardens. There is also a kitchen available for guests to try new recipes with local produce. The sound/massage chair was awesome, too!

I stayed at the Piccolo Principe B&B for 4 nights in late April 2013, and have to say I came away impressed. I stayed in several hotels, B&Bs, and hostels during my Euro vacation, and the Piccolo Principe came out as one of the best expereinces. First I have to say that Riccardo and Ilaria - the owners of the... More

A very nice and friendly place. Although this B&B is 15 minutes away from the main piazza of Florence, it offers a nice taste of local Florentine lifestyle through its proximity to Piazza Savanorola. During the day the piazza is full of young children playing soccer and lounging seniors while in the evening, the gazebo bar opens and it becomes... More

The room is the cleanest room I have ever stayed (among b&bs). People are very kind and very nice. There is a kind of music relaxing sofa that makes you relaxed after a hard walking day. The breakfast was good and we could use the kitchen. Supermarket is near the b&b so we used to buy something and cook in... More

Found this place on tripadvisor by chance. Was very concerned initially why this place is ranked 121th. After staying here from the 26th June- 29th June 2012. I really feel this place has not been given the credit they deserve. Communicated on email before arrival a month back, I asked Ilaria the owner about directions to her place. She promptly... More
