We spent New Years Eve in Florence this year and stayed about a week at Panella's Residence. This was the perfect way to start the new year. Graziella is an amazing host. She was helpful with anything we needed from restaurant recommendations to day trips. She really made us feel welcome. Our room was large for a European B&B and... More

We stayed 5 nights and had a grand experience. The location is terrific, close to all the major sights and also within walking distance of regions south of the Arno. Our spotless room was very large with two windows, facing the street. There were workmen right outside our window (an accident of timing). Though noisy during the day, it was... More

My partner and I stayed here from 30th Sept 2014 to 3rd Oct 2014 and couldn't find a fault. The location is amazing with all the sight within walking distance, we also managed to walk from the train station to the B&B so even saved on taxi fares. When we arrived we were advised that the queues for the Uffzi... More

Enjoyed the large room with fireplace. Outstanding location, breakfast, and large bathroom. The street noise in the morning from the cars was a bit loud at times but all else was great. We would definitely return.

We stayed here after reading other reviews. It is in a good location - we flew to Pisa, took the train to Florence then walked past the cathedral to Panellas. Having stayed in lots of locations across Italy in the past ten years, this wasn't the best, but the rooms were spacious. PROS Good location, quiet street Friendly host with... More

This B&B is a restored former convent dating back several hundred years. Our room was gorgeous and spacious with 15 ft ceilings. It was close to the train station and other sights, making it easy to walk to our destinations. Graziella is a warm, welcoming hosts, and very helpful. She made dinner recommendations and secured reservations for us for the... More

Our 2nd visit to Florence and Panella's was at least as good as the 1st. Graziella helps getting reservations at Uffizi and Academia so you wont have to stay in line all day. This time we brought our infant son and Graziella brought us breakfast in our room for our conveniens. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The location is... More

Graziella was wonderful and so helpful! Great with maps & directions to our various tours with Inside Florence starting points. We walked everywhere. Her recommendation of the first restaurant right around the corner was so good & so much fun that we went back each of the 4 nights of our stay. Lovely atmosphere and very quaint setting for Breakfast,... More

Wonderful place! Graziella is the perfect host, and her breakfasts are wonderful. The rooms are charming and immaculate. Graziella has many recommendations for restaurants within walking distance, and she has advice on walking to different sites nearby. I can't imagine that a family of kids would be as thrilled as we were. For us it was a perfect place to... More
