Antica Posta is located about 5 blocks from Santa Maria Novella Train Station. quite a walk from major sights but enjoyable nonetheless. The room was very cozy with basic amenities, no in-room safe though. Bed was comfy but I do agree the pillows are a little soft.The windows opened to a courtyard but the room we had lacked privacy.

This B&B was our first stop on our honeymoon. The setting was a little unusual - it was part of a floor in a brownstone - it was just what we wanted and needed. We spent our days walking around Florence and taking day trips to places like Pisa and Sienna. We spent our evenings eating fabulous meals and gelato.... More

Unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity to stay here as we were told on arrival that my booking companies email had not been received. Even though I had sent an email to confirm our time of arrival (apparently my name was similar to the other booking they had which is why they didn't notice the error) and had paid a... More

It was very tucked away, yet close enough to all the sights...staff was very friendly.Breakfast is between 8-10 only. the pillows were not the best if you want a good nights sleep. Overall, very nice!

The location is very narrow to the central station and placed immeditely on a main traffic road. In case of traveling by car it is to reach only if you drive hard on the left hand site and stop immedialey in front of house no 50 or better on the cross street before. When arrival is done the BB is... More

Walk was far from station especially with luggage. Bed was so soft and springs dug into back. Wifi didn't work. Breakfast was inedible so had breakfast when we went out. However, Vesna was so lovely and happy to help out whenever we asked her any questions. Nice place for a short stay.

The cozy, homey and peaceful atmosphere of Antica Posta was so welcoming after our long trip overseas. Mariella and staff went the extra mile to ensure our comfort, and voluntarily helped us with maps, local information, and museum reservations. Despite the warm, traditional atmosphere of this B and B, there was also a freshness to it that was very appealing... More

I stayed here with my husband for a week from 31/5 to 7/6 this year. We wanted somewhere away from the noise for rest at night as we pack plenty into our days! The Antica Posta is a lovely cosy B&B, and being only 5 rooms assured us of our peace at night. It was lovely - room was airy,... More
