My husband and I stayed at La Gradiva for three nights in October 2014. While we loved the location, the size of the room and the balcony, the service was lacking. Our experience was not as pleasant as other reviewers. We found the building easily enough, but once we got there we couldn't get in. I had emailed Ricardo with... More

Sleeping in a hotel is so last year. A bed and breakfast on the other hand is a lot more personal. We went to Italy and stayed in B&B La Gradiva. Something we didn't regret! Read this review and maybe you'll find yourself there soon. At the heart of Florence, B&B La Gradiva is the perfect location if you're planning... More

We jus sayed at La Gradiva (family with 9 year old) and we must say it is a lovey, lovely place. The location is super, basically about 50 m from the end of Ponte Vecchio. The room we were in was large, with a balcony overlooking the street (but no issue with noise). What made our stay very special indeed... More

The best breakfast I have ever had at an Italian hotel (which includes 4* and 5* hotels in Rome and Amalfi) Riccardo amazingly friendly and helpful, great stories and lovely to chat to. The girl who covers his days off is lovely as well. The location is superb, about 100 yards from Ponte Vecchio, great restaurants on the Via San... More

Assuming you are reading this review because you are looking for well-priced accommodation in an excellent location in Florence then you are looking in the right place. The La Gradiva is a small guest-house where there is a chance to sample Italian hospitality in a location that is ideally placed to explore the city. It is just a few paces... More

I was the first to arrive of our little girl group- and I was greeted by the B&B owner Riccardo at the entrance of the gallery. Riccardo arranged our taxi service, prepared amazing coffee and breakfast each morning and made sure we had anything we needed during our stay. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, bathrooms are modern and... More

Nice B&B in a (I wood say) perfect location to visit Firenze on foot, also during the night, close to restaurants and facilities. The house is nice and the room/bathroom is clean. Breakfast is with fresh made croissants, milk/coffee/tea/juice (not salty). I would suggest it for short stays, as you don't have the room cleaning service or change for towels/sheet... More

Spent two nights at this B & B and would definitely recommend it. Location was fantastic, although a little difficult to find initially. Ricardo was very accommodating, provided an excellent breakfast, his recommendations for dinner were perfect. Room was comfortable and clean, bathroom was good sized. Nice change from the hotels and wonderful personalized service.
