Used to be a private casa but now a guest house. A little funky at first, but very stylish and gracious and friendly and warm. The couple, the Howards, have another b&b in Rome, and really know what they're doing. The staff is amazing (been with the family for decades) and go out of their way to make you at... More

I styaed two nights at the hidden room, which is perfect for a couple, romantic, with a king size bed, the shower inside the room, and erotic pictures. Clean, great treatment, has a nespresso coffe machine you can use all the time, tea in the room. The staff is wonderful and helpful. Location is excelent, is close to the station... More

It was our 2nd trip to Florence but this time with friends. We stayed for four nights and our friends for two nights. It was my first ever stay in a Guest House and I wasn't sure what to expect. So I also having no other guest houses to compare against. We opted for the Black & White room which... More

I stayed here solo for 4 nights in March. Note that I was in the garden room, which is on the ground floor next to the owner's studio. Plus/minus points were: + great location. 2 min from Santa Maria Novella, 5 min from station, 10 min to central market, Cathedral, Ponte Vecchio. + good price. + fairly quiet. + good... More

We had read such good reviews and sadly we were a little disappointed. The location is good close to everything and the staff is the only reason I am giving it a 3 star as they were wonderful! But man did our room need a good scrubbing and a new coat of paint. The room was moldy and the shower... More

Stayed for three nights for a 40th birthday w/e. Having seen it recommended in a couple of respected guide books I was expecting to be really impressed, but instead was disappointed. We were given the black & white room, which is an odd layout and appears very tired. (Toilet flush sticks, paintwork peeling, soft furnishings worn). Staff were pleasant enough,... More

We stayed here for three nights on our trip. As it's mentioned, this is a guest house and not a hotel so there is not always someone at the front desk. The guest house is located about 5 minutes from the main train station and a quick walk into the major areas of Florence which was a big plus. The... More

We stayed here for one night, our last night in Italy. Location is great, easy walk to the main historic center of Florence, and very convenient access to train station and airport. Just down the street from Piazza Santa Maria Novella, which is lovely, and you can hear the church bells ringing. The staff is wonderful. The rooms are very... More

From ringing the bell you were stepping back in time. A very old house where the first floor has been transformed in to a guest house. We had the old drawing room. Two kingsize beds, two small settees & one large settee. Chinese cabinets & marble flooring. The windows had the original wooden shutters & beautiful silk drapes. Tea &... More
