I tried to book a room for June 2014. Two weeks after I booked, I received an email stating that my credit card details were incorrect and my booking was cancelled. I always triple check my cc details together with my girlfriend, so I already thought it was kind of fishy. I didn't have an option to re-enter my details,... More

Sweet Florence is an EXCELLENT place to stay when visiting the lovely city of Florence. Not only were the accommodations spotless and spacious, but the hosts, Romana and Mirko were fantastic! They live off sight but were very professional and extremely helpful. Romana, who speaks excellent English explained everything to us and recommended places to eat, which were 'local and... More

It's located about 20 minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella station. We stayed in the Micelangelo room which was clean and large. Wifi was provided free of charge. The owners met us on arrival and were efficient and business like although not very helpful in terms of information on transportation around town. Breakfast is typical Italian B&B fare...prepacked pastry, coffee/tea,... More

We had a satisfactory stay. The air conditioning was satisfactory, the room was satisfactory, and the location was satisfactory. You will be sharing a bathroom with 2 other rooms, so it is frustrating having to use the shower or toilet after 3 to 4 people. There is no reception and the management is barely on site, so its hard to... More

The room was clean and spacious and we knew beforehand that we were sharing a bathroom (as everyone who can read knows!) so that was fair enough. Very good value for money, and the (continental) breakfast at the bar down the road was fine. The only disappointment was the shower, which took over a minute at times to become hot... More

We stayed in Sweet Florence for two nights after we extended our stay in Florence at the last minute. It was easy to check in, the owners/hosts were welcoming and explained everything really well. The bed was comfortable and as mentioned in previous reviews the shared bathroom was clean and only shared with one other room. We paid 64 Euro... More

Dear customer, I'm sorry for your inconvenience, but what you say is not true, (the distance from the central station to us is 800 meters) in our city there are buses that I carried anywhere you want, you could ask if you had difficulty to us and we had helped you. More

This is a nice BnB 15 min walk from the main rail station. And it's good value for money. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is self service in the room. An electric kettle is provided with croissant, cookies, coffee, jam and mineral water. So you make your own breakfast. Room is cleaned daily. Staff is friendly and... More

We had a little trouble locating the place and it was quite a walk from the station (15-20min) but other that that, we are very pleased with our stay. Our room is big with a working aircon and even an electrical insect repellant for the room, which was really helpful as the mosquitoes in Italy are pretty aggressive. Towels are... More

The hotel itself is a kind of appartment, room is spacious and clean. Located in 15 minutes walking distance from main train station, but in opposite direction to city center. The main disappointment is inaccurate information in description of chosen room: we have paid for the room with individual bathroom, but in our case bath was outside of the room,... More

Dear Customer , I just want to underline the fact that, before expressing your opinion, you should have read the reservation made with Venere.com that envisaged a room with a shared bathroom, as you requested. We are very sorry for your disappointment and we advise you, before making other reservation, to pay attention to what you book. More
