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

Positives - Tiziana is super caring and immediately available to help. Prices are fair. Walking Distance to all attractions. Big room size. Negatives - Minimal ventilation in rooms. Poor bathroom (need renovation). Wifi doesnt work in the room. Too many locked doors to get in the room Tip - It took us quite a while to find the hotel. It... More

Located in an old building, within easy walking distance of the major attractions. We had a large room with a wonderful view of the river. The area is lively at night, being popular with Italians rather than tourists, which we enjoyed. The room was showing more than a few signs of neglect, such as loose wall mounted bedside lights; in... More

We really liked the location, just a short walk to Ponte Vecchio & Galleria dell'Accademia ... but the room # 11 we stayed in was in poor condition. The entrance door (photo) appeared unsecure, though the mansion has large locked exterior door and gate. The toilet for our room was located on the opposite end of the room (thru a... More

I love the San frediano Mansion. It's supposed to be a bed and breakfast, but I got a whole hudge kitchen only for myself, and of course a very new, nice bathroom. Very good relationship price and quality. In that hotel, every room is incredibly large, with nice tissues and a few decorations.... with taste. The reception is exceptional... The... More

This is a quiet B&B on the Oltrano side of Florence. There are just 10 rooms and only a couple overlook the river. There is a tiny lift to get you up to the 2nd floor although it is easier to walk and well lit at night. The B&B is access through a huge wooden door and iron gate which... More

This small hotel is located a few rooms in the heart of historic Florence, a 10-minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti and other attractions. Hotel room got interesting: two rooms, one of which is a large kitchen with two (!) <empty> refrigerators, gas stove and hood, apparently, since time immemorial. :-) Of the benefits of the hotel can...
