We stayed here for six nights in October. Easy to get bus to and from train station, bus stop is near this B&B. There is a large shuttle bus from train station to airport if you need that too. The owners, Luciano and Stephania, were wonderful - so friendly and helpful. The rooms (there are two rooms available) are comfortable... More

I would recommend this small B & B to anyone visiting Florence. The hosts were wonderful, great location, and perfect room. The hosts, although their English was not the best, made every effort to communicate with us the information we needed to know. They made us feel and home and welcomed us without being too intrusive. The location of this... More

Saw all the great reviews on tripadvisor and booked this B&B for my visit to Florence with my wife a week back. One thing you'll notice in all the reviews is that they mention the hosts... and boy, there is good reason to! Luciano and Stefania are an extremely sweet couple who treat their guests with so much warmth, that... More

We stayed for almost two full weeks at this Guest House. It was truly wonderful! Stefania and Luciano were fabulous hosts! You have enough privacy to do your own thing but they were always available to help you work out your plans or make suggestions of things you might enjoy. They were knowledgeable about everything! They made wonderful suggestions of... More

The best part about staying at this B&B was the wonderful hosts, Stefania and Luciano. They will go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy everything that Florence has to offer. We managed to visit Florence on a Monday, when many of the attractions are closed. They explained to us what was still open on Monday and... More

A lovely little bed and breakfast located outside the heart of Florence. If you're looking for accommodation that is very well priced and away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre then this is the perfect place. Public transport access is very good as well as some nice restaurants that are in the area. The couple running the... More

From the moment you are greeted you know you made the right choice in staying at Al Ventaglio. The couple who run this lovely B&B (Luciano & Stefania) are warm, cultured and only content if you are comfortable and happy. It's a real pleasure to be here! This B&B has 2 rooms and they are decorated elegantly and are spacious.... More

At first I was a little disappointed that this B&B was a bus ride out of the city because I found the buses a little difficult to negotiate (I've travelled all over Europe and found this one if the trickiest places) However I realised that there are a hundred museums and art galleries and hundreds of tourists in Florence; if...

It is worth staying here just to meet Stefania and Luciano. They embody the definition of hospitality. When I arrived I was not feeling well; I felt light headed and weak, they quickly made every effort to care for me making me tea and even taking my blood pressure. When I felt better they joyfully shared things we should see... More

This was one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. We took two rooms for our family. The rooms/toilets were spotlessly clean, cleaned everyday and was decorated tastefully. Espresso machines and kettles meant that you could always have coffee and tea, which was all well stocked. Breakfast was good continental fare - croissants, cakes, cheese, ham, jam, juice, crackers... More
