We stayed in Casa di Mina for 3 nights this June. It was a great experience. Firstly we have to say we like the location - It's about 15mins bus drive from central station, so convenient for the City Centre but far enough from the hustle and noise of the city. Lynda and Francesco were very welcoming and allowed us... More

We chose a B&B for our Florence visit and were glad to have found Casa di Mina - it is a beautiful home away from the hordes of tourists ( of which of course we were another two!). Lynda welcomed us into her home warmly, providing information on how to get around, advice on local restaurants.a wonderful stay

It started as a 40th Birthday surprise. A trip to Florence. To arrive to such a happy couple Francesco and Lynda. Great service and even when we were getting up early the following day to travel to Venice for a day trip, Francesco got up early to prepare breakfast for us. I have nothing negative to say about our stay... More

We stayed here for two nights. We were looking for somewhere that offered free parking as we had a hire car. So it was, there is plenty of free parking in the street out front. Although you're not right in the centre, the #11 bus will take you there in 5 mins (runs every 10mins. Bus stop 5 mins walk),... More

The house is spotless and well-appointed. This is actually one place that looks better in person than in pictures. If you are looking for a bed & breakfast in Florence this is a great place. The rooms are clean and spacious, our with a private bath. Our room was so comfortable that I felt like I was staying with family... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful three night break at this terrific property. Our room was at the front of the building and whilst the road outside was busy the lovely shutters on the windows ensured inside was peaceful and quiet. The property is really lovely; bedrooms clean and welcoming and the large dining cum sitting area at the... More

My husband and I have stayed here on two different occasions as both times we had a car and it's always easy to find parking right on the street in front of the house. And both times we have loved it. The house is gorgeous and the rooms simply wonderful. Spotlessly clean with a tasteful and modern decor (and VERY... More

Our stay at Francesco's B&B was really excellent. The house is beautifuly decorated. We had a variated breakfast for Italian standards. We were recommanded good restaurants. The busstop is just a 5min walk and brings you to the city center (20min by foot). So price quality an excellent B&B !
