Me and my boyfriend stayed here at the end of April (2015) for a romantic few days in Florence. On arrival we were greeted by Cinzia who was extremely welcoming and gave us great advice on great sights to visit and places to eat in Florence. Throughout our stay, Cinzia was always so polite, accommodating, and best of all she... More

Michel and Cinzia, the owners, are truly amazing hosts. The hotel is small - 5 rooms - all very well appointed. The rooms have great beds and baths, as do many hotels. The restoration that they have done has preserved frescoes and classical touches of the original house while adding many modern conveniences. And the breakfast, the warm welcome, the... More

My wife and I visited this beautiful small b n b for two nights as the first leg of a five day honeymoon in Italy. It is a beautifully restored and deocrated townhouse in a quiet neighrbourhood and yet close to the heart of the city also. There are five rooms in the residence, each of which has a unique... More

Michel and Cinzia are perfect hosts, and their small boutique is an ideal retreat in the heart of Florence, just a few minutes from the train station and within short walks to Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio and all other spots. It's situated next to Florence's great synagogue, beautiful and serene on a residential street. The hosts don't hover but are always... More

This B&B set very conveniently near the center of Florence is fantastic. It is set in a restored former residence, with gorgeously updated floors, immaculate furnishings, modern touches, and wonderful frescoes on the ceilings that were discovered during the renovation process. The bed was the most comfortable one we slept on during our whole 2 week vacation in Italy, and... More

This B&B is comprised of 5 rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms are modern and more-than-functional. Michel and Cinzia are perfect hosts. They know Florence and they seem to know exactly what their guests are seeking. The B&B is located in a quiet, safe, residential neighborhood with several markets and more-than-enoughrestaurants. It's... More

My wife and I stayed here in March 2015. Cinzia and her family could not do enough for us throughout our stay. Lovely panna cotta, scrambled eggs and plenty of coffee for breakfast. Recommendation of Acquacotta restaurant nearby was excellent.

As soon as we arrived we were met with a warm greeting from one of our hosts, Cinzia. We had arrived a little early so our room wasn't quite ready, but we didn't mind at all as we were offered a coffee and Cinzia took the time to explain where all the main sights were. The B&B is located within... More

Excellent location, Excellent building, Excellent room EXcellent garden view from the room, Excellent breakfast. May I add that our eggs were prepared personally by the owner Michel! Both Cinzia and Michel were outstanding hosts. They spent the time to give us tips about the city, sites and shopping. A "warm" home away from home.

The first impression is not right for what you are about to see. Arriving at the hotel, I was in doubt if I had the right address. But when you get out of the antique elevator, in the second floor of a residential building, you will believe you are at home in a couple of minutes. Michel and Cinzia are... More
