We had booked the economy double room but because we were on our honeymoon they upgraded us to a superior suite!! What a beautiful and spacious room! The linen was crisp and clean and the bathroom was elegant and the toilet white and clean with no stains. The room had a lovely little breakfast available which they restocked every night.... More

Staff was very sweet, we arrived a bit early and they allowed us to check our bags until our room was ready. Very good location, both places across the street are fantastic. We spent a good amount of time at Piazza di Santa Croce which was lovely, particularly in the evening. All of the shops/ cafes in the area are... More

The best thing about this B&B is its location- right at the piazza di santa croce and a very short walk from uffizi, palazzo vecchio, ponte vecchio and all the main attractions! Also, the rooms are absolutely gorgeous! And have good wifi. The down sides to this B&B are several. First of all, the breakfast is just several basic ingredients... More

My impression of the property as whole was very high! They have a beautifully decorated and clean facility. The location is good too. One major problem was the staff! The Receptionist was very unorganized, rude, and unprofessional. He made strange comments and was aggressive at times. The door was broken, so they put us in another room...which wasn't a quad...which... More

We traveled to Florence for a big family wedding, occupying 12 rooms, for one week in the Black Five B&B. Every room was unique - varying color schemes, furniture etc, but they were ALL fabulous. The beds had new mattresses, the pillows were plush and ample, the bathrooms were all new gorgeous marble and tile. The staff was very helpful... More

We stayed in the French double. Smallest room you can imagine, difficult to even put your suitcase on the floor anywhere. I can't believe it's being sold as a double. Make sure when you book you ask them which number room you're given so you can check out the images! When we got their the fridge wasn't switched on, the... More

We took 2 rooms here for 4 nights this summer - great location within walking distance of all of central Florence, nothing more than 10 mins away. Rooms were very clean, well furnished, and a good size. Breakfast was cosy in the upstairs loft breakfast area, with a very efficient and friendly lady making good coffee!! One thing to bear...

This beautiful B&B in center of Florence just off piazza Santa croce. We spent 3 nights in large Room very confortable and georgius furnished. Large Windows make the Room so bright. Breakfast is delicious and served in a super nice top floor location. The most Signs of Florence are at walking distanze from B&B as like all restaurants are. We... More
