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

Very pleasant, well located: it was clean, quiet, comfortable. Beautiful frescoes on the ceiling. The window of our room were very noisy and the waterfront. The administrator was on the place of settlement in the agreed time, which is very convenient.

We chose the San Fredriano Mansion because we wanted somewhere 'authentic' and unpretentious, and SFM didn't disappoint. We were lucky enough to get Room 7 with a view over the river. Easy access to the rest of Florence - with a bus stop right outside that went to the station and The Academia. Tiziana and Piero were very helpful too.... More

Great location, in close walking distance to anything important. I had a beautiful, huge room. Wifi does not work in the rooms and hardly other than in the lobby. Do not stay during cold periods as they just won't heat the room other than a few hours in the evening and it's freezing cold without. I had bad luck this... More

We enjoyed our stay in room no. 1 at San Frediano Mansion. It's beyond words huge... Too big even, for only 2 people... But beautiful nonetheless. The location is perfect, Ponte Vecchio and all other major sights just a few minutes away. Even though we hardly saw the staff, they were friendly when we did bump into them. There was... More
