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...

My husband and I stayed in the San Frediano Mansion for one night and we definitely wished we had stayed there much longer. The room was extremely spacious with very high ceilings and a wonderful private washroom. The artwork on the celiings when you enter to check in is stunning and the rooms are equally beautiful. The staff were friendly... More

Really enjoyed staying here. It felt like staying in some great aunt's old mansion. Absolutely massive rooms with enormous high ceilings and frescoes. It transports you back to the Renaissance. Pay extra for a view of the Arno and you will have beautiful tall shuttered windows to open each morning and watch the swallows diving in the back garden and... More

We had a huge room in the SFM with a small entry hall and separate bathroom. A fridge was provided and there was a beautiful fresco on the very high ceiling of the main room. The room had a wonderful view over the River Arno. The double glazed windows kept out any traffic noise. SMF is advertised as a B... More
