I cant recommend highly enough. It was great value, everyone was incredibly polite, the rooms were large and clean, it was a short walk into town (there's a nice pizzeria about 2 mins walk away) and they were happy to split a double bed into a twin room at our request. It was, in short, fantastic.

My husband and I had a pleasant 2-night stay in B&B A Casa di Virgilio in Florence. The B&B was an old Italian family home that converted into rooms with breakfast. It is conveniently located, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy train station. From the train station, you can take bus 14 to get to the B&B... More

In my opinion it is very important for a foreign tourist to see the normal daily life of the country you visit, the district Rifredi where you leased the B & B is near to the center but has all the features of the Italian neighborhood with supermarkets, restaurants, furnace under the house, the fresh pasta shop (there is a...

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! The owner is so sweet and made us feel so comfortable. Everything was super clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious! Its about a ten minute bus ride to the train station and from there you can walk to everything. Stay here!

We spent 5 wonderful nights, and days!, with Laura in the beautifully updated home of her beloved Grandparents. Our room was spacious with a view of a small park. Our ensuite bathroom was skillfully tiled and the shower was big enough for 2, very unusual in Europe. Our breakfasts were like smorgasbords, including various fruits, juices,cereal, cookies, croissants,cheese, occasional meat... More

Stayed for 3 nights. The welcome by the host was most warming, she made you feel very welcome, rooms were cleaned everyday and were immaculate and comfortable. B&B is a couple of stops on the bus or a 25 min walk to the centre but the value for money is worth the travel.

Although this B and B maybe more than some. The old adage 'you get what you pay for' applies. room we stayed in was clean and spacious. The breakfast room provided a wonderful choice of goodies, plus an English breakfast tea if you didn't want the traditional Italian coffee to kick start your day! I would recommend it to our... More

Staying at B&B A Casa di Virgilio was a wonderful experience. It is clean, spacious, in a great location, and the property manager / hostess, Laura, was an outstanding hostess. We highly recommend B&B Casa di Virgilio and hope to stay there again someday.

Laura was very welcoming on email but in person her warmth makes you feel even more welcome to Florence. She kept apologizing for her lack of English but gave us more info than we received anywhere else in Italy. The entire B&B is clean and well maintained and her personal touch of making coffee/tea in the morning for breakfast just... More
