Loved this little B&B, right in the heart of Florence with a view of the Duomo. Franco and Sawako were the perfect hosts, even giving us wine and cheese when we arrived late at night and too tired to go out. They also helped with advice on the area and places to eat out. The room was gorgeous with a... More

We had a great stay at B&B Novecento in August 2014. It was just a short 5-minute walk from the train station and only about 100 meters from the Duomo, so for us it was a perfect location at a great price. Franco was very helpful as we checked in, sharing a map of the city, pointing out recommended restaurants... More

My families had a wonderful time at Novecento. It is in a very convenient location, within a block from the Duomo. Sitting at the terrace was a wonderful experience. From there, you could see the Duomo which looks spectacular both during day and night. Although the B&B is on the 3rd floor, the hosts, Franco and Sawako, always helped us... More

We had a clean, comfortable room at a reasonable price and with a great location. Franco and Sawaki are attentive and helpful hosts. As many of the reviewers noted, it is on the 3rd floor (remember, in Europe the ground floor counts as zero, so most Americans would call it the 4th floor) of an old building with no elevator,...

Yes, there is a five story climb to get to the B&B. Yes, the shower does get everything in the bathroom wet. And yes the breakfast is small and the air conditioner didn't work as well as the other places we stayed on our trip (it still works quite well, my family just prefers it near arctic when we sleep.)...

I disagree with the review below. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at Novecento. Franco and Sawaki made our stay at Florence enjoyable and well informed. They went out of there way to help us book tickets and tours. Comparatively this place offers excellent value for money with the Duomo on your doorstep. In response to the criticism... More

This place was recommended in my Time Out guide, and I really disagree with their high marks of the place. A five story walk up - be prepared. Upon arrival, met Franco and Sawaki, who disappeared after breakfast daily, never to be seen. This became an issue as the towels in my room were NEVER exchanged in 3 days and... More

Had a great stay here in October 2013. Spent three nights. Bedroom was clean, bathroom small and wet (when taking a shower) - but OK. Franco was very smiling and helpful, gave us valuable tips and recommandations on where to dine. Would like to stay here again!

The location and price (at least in August) can't be beat. So close to the Duomo, the Accademia, the Uffizi, and really, every place you'd want to go on foot. Also less than 10 minutes on foot from the train station, two bike rental shops, two scooter rental/ride options. The roof deck is great. Single bed room is small but... More
