We chose this bed and breakfast because of the location and the reviews. We wanted something very close to the major attractions and also with a good breakfast. The location is excellent and the breakfast, although the same every day is perfectly adequate and far better than most Italian hotels. The room we had and I am sure every other... More

Dear Guest, thank you very musch for the beautiful review. Unluckly the position in the historical center and on the first floor of an historical building doesn't help us on view from our rooms, but it is also true that just 2 minutes walking away you are in Duomo Square, I think that could be a good deal.. Of course... More

We stayed at Tourist House Ghiberti in Aug 2014 and can recommend it without any hesitation. Superb location, very functional rooms, clean, convenient bed, adequate breakfast and FANTASTIC / super helpful staff. We happened to get into a serious trouble at the last day of our trip to Florence. Hotel’s stuff did everything and more to help us regardless to... More

The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood in the old city of Florence, right in the middle of everything. It’s just one block away from the Florence Cathedral and just minutes away from the city’s other sights. Parking is a bit problematic as the hotel needs to be informed before the arrival and a special permit is required to... More

One of the best places I have ever stayed at. Inside the city center, right behind the duomo, but the street itself is quiet. About a 15 min walk from the main train station but there is a bus stop in front of the B&B. Spacious room with nice decorating, very clean and with a very comfortable bed. Wi-fi in... More

If you are looking for the perfect accommodation in Florence for everything from positioning to service and comfort, then you can't go past Tourist House Ghiberti. The rooms are a good size, the beds are comfortable and everything is spotlessly clean. If I was to have criticism it would be the size of the shower. But then we found this... More

Situated a couple of minutes from Duomo, this is a lovely place to stay. Despite being so close to the centre, it's so quiet; even on the little terrace, you can't hear a thing. The room is well equipped, spotlessly clean and the beds are incredibly comfortable. Owners are polite and accommodating and a good choice for breakfast. Would definitely... More

We think this B&B might just have been the best place we stayed at during our month in Europe. They really have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable, are close to everything you could want, are friendly and welcoming, beds are most comfortable we have had outside our own home....could go on and on. Also, for a true... More

Very close to everything Florence has to offer. Easy walk from the train station. The owners are very gracious and helpful. The rooms are beautiful! The breakfast was good and they have a nice outdoor patio.
