On July 10, 2015 I requested a room for two nights starting July 11 and 12th. When I received confirmation email they had only given me one night which was July 10 I immediately called the hotel and told them of their error they said they only had one night and that was July 10. I told him I did... More

We arrived in Florence at 10.30pm with our 9year old daughter. We had a short 10 minute walk across the bridge and into San frediano. We instantly loved the location especially for the price we paid. The rooms we had were huge and well catered for a family of 3, one night we had a severe thunderstorm and had to... More

My friends and I recently stay in a room for 3. I have to say I didn't like the room at all but the staff were very nice. The room was a bit run down and could use some touching up. The bed I was on was more of a camp bed and not very comfortable. It's billed as a... More

Went on vacation with girlfriends and we stayed here a couple of nights. It is not as nice as the pictures make it out be, but it worked for our trip. It was a slow check in process. Once in our room, one of the legs in one of the beds was broken - we improvised and used books to... More

Hi we stayed at San Frediano Mansion on 21st of May 2014, which we enjoyed. We drove our car into the traffic restricted zone to help unpack our bags and 6 month old child. Before doing this I went to the hotel by foot, and was told by the man who checked us in that he would organise a waiver... More

One of the few B&B in Santo Spirito- San Frediano area: the coolest area in town. Just step out from the place and you will find many bars and places where to drink a glass of wine (vinaio) and eat some ham or local pecorino. You will find also studios of artists from Italy and other countries. The atmoshere of... More

Hello, I stayed again one week, one year later, in the mansion San Frediano and was still more satisfied that the first time. Well, as I can't give a rating of 110%.... The location is very interesting for the people who don't like to be in the middle of the tourist groups, because you just cross a very central bridge... More

Nicely situated in the Oltarno district (away from the SUPER touristy part of town) and a reasonable price are almost the only good things I can say about this place. It does have larger rooms and some of them have views, but this place really needs some TLC. Burnt out light bulbs, light fixtures not attached tightly to the wall,... More

This B&B is in a good location, only minutes from all main attractions and the trendy San Spirito district. However, the place is in a state of disrepair and could do with an upgrade. The bathroom in particular was very shabby, although appeared clean. Don't expect anything to be provided apart from old towels. The fridge did not work and... More

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighborhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
