We got exactly what we needed for our 6-night stay in Florence. Our friendly host provided us with gracious hospitality and a helpful overview of the locale upon our arrival. Breakfast at this B&B was by way of a voucher for brioche, coffee and juice at a café bar a few doors down. It was good from like 8:30AM-1:30PM, so... More

Locada de' Ciompi is the perfect place to stay in Florence. The location was wonderful; close enough to all the sights but locations in a neighborhood geared towards locals, not hordes of obnoxious tourists. I stayed in the large "camera degli spezziali" which was a charming room with a private balcony, wood beams, and an enormous bathroom with a beautiful... More

Alessio, the owner and administrator of the place, is a true gentlemen, very professional, hospitable and respectful. We were really impressed with his customer service. He really cared for our convenience and comfort. The room was a good size for both of us, very clean and made us feel at home. Although, the bathroom was not attached, it wasn't an... More

I booked the Lancanda dei' Ciompi as Expedia had a deal on and it appeared to be well located to all the sights in Florence, it turned out to be a fantastic deal as this place is lovely. This guest house is on the other side of the city to the main train station but a very easy walk taking... More

I just returned from 2 weeks in Italy, and Locanda de' Ciompi was easily the best accommodation during my trip. Alessio is a gem - he clearly takes pleasure in running this B&B and making sure his guests are comfortable. The room I stayed in was comfortable, clean, and spacious. The en suite bathroom was as well. The location is... More

Firstly, DO NOT listen to the (very few) negative reviews on here. They are from earlier when the B&B was under different management. Currently, the owner/manager is Alessio and he is the friendliest and most welcoming Italian I have met. He was there to greet us in person and provided us with maps and helpful hints about getting around, where... More

My friend and I went on a 16-day tour of Italy and although we only stayed two of those nights in Florence, it was truly a standout for many reasons. Upon arriving at Locanda di Ciompi, we were blown away by its proximity to all the hot spots, not to mention, its grandiose, metal, SECURE entrance. When we entered, we... More

Found by chance, this is an amazing hidden jewel. The locanda is optimally located near all major landmarks but still in a part of town not overcrowded by tourists. I had a clear sense of living as the Florentine people do. Owner Alessio epitomizes Italian hospitality. He is the most charming and helpful host ever! Rooms are spacious, stylishly furnished...

Of all the hotels, rooms and B&B accommodations we had (we did not have a bad one), we both agreed that our favorite was the three night stay at Locanda de’ Ciompi in... More

My husband and I have returned from a lovely 10 days in Florence. Locanda de' Ciompi was the perfect location to have a "real" stay in Italy. This B&B has a great location within a working neighborhood that allows you a glimpse at the Italian life. Allessio was a pleasure to work with from the initial email contact we had... More
