Not a place I would necessarily go back to. Although the room is pretty spacious, the bathroom is upstairs, you have to negotiate a narrow spiral staircase which makes it quite incovenient at night or for someone with partial mobility. Cereals from a half-open box do not quite make it for an inviting breakfast. A more personable host would have... More

We are sorry you were disappointed with your one-night stay at Gianna's. We will ask Venere/Expedia to provide a more precise description of the room so that future clients are aware that the bathroom is on the mezzanine level. Gianna's is a one-room B & B that offers 3 different types of cereals so it sometimes happens that the cereal... More

The location is awesome and you can get everywhere by foot or there is a taxi stand nearby. The room is clean and comfortable with great airconditioning which was heavenly after a long day. There is a double bed on the ground floor and a single bed upstairs. Beds are comfortable and great. I only suggest you bring earplugs with... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. It was so easy to walk around Florence that we actually walked to & from the Train Station to this B&B with luggage - about 8-12 mins walking. The room was nice with plenty of sunlight and really generously stocked, with fruits,. John was very helpful with all the questions we had... More

I stayed here for 4 nights at a very reasonable cost of 300 Euro in 2011. Gianna's is about halfway between the train station and the Duomo and you can walk to either in about 10-15 minutes. We took a taxi as we arrived after midnight, but walked the rest of the time everywhere. The room is on the 4th... More

Stayed 3 nights with 2 college-aged daughters. Room is just off the entry door to Jane and her husband's home, but could come and go any time. It's 10-15 min walk from train station, but relatively quiet street at night. Room is unique---good sized with a nook kitchen, and a spiral staircase to upper 3rd bed loft and bathroom. No... More

My husband and I stayed this Gianna's Bed and Breakfast last week. The location was excellent and Gianna's service was so great! All the local places that she recommended was excellent. We went to a great restaurant and organic market that opens only during the first weekend of the month per Gianna's recommendation. We bought so many cool stuff from... More

Like other reviewers, I have nothing but good things to say about Gianna's B&B. I'll focus on the aspects I liked the most: (1) The proprietors are lovely: helpful and accommodating without being fussy. They seemed to be around when you needed them but I never felt like I was intruding. They tidied up when it was convenient for us,... More

About a 10 min walk from the main Train station, the directions given are easy to follow. There is no lift but the stairs are wide enough for you to drag your bags up relatively easily and its only 2 flights. Your host Jane/Gianna has been living in Florence for 28 years, but as she was from an English speaking... More
