Just a short 5 minute walk from the train when we arrived. I think we paid 5-10 euro extra per night for a private bathroom and a bigger room which had a TV and AC. We were given a map when we arrived and were pointed out directions to all of the main attractions. There are some great restaurants in... More

We stayed for 4 nights and the room and community areas were clean. No problem with waiting for shared bathroom. No AC but the window and the ceiling fan did made the nights bearable. Very friendly neighborhood with a great bakery down the street. Easy to get to from the train station and easy to walk to anywhere in the... More

The room given to us are quite spacious and clean. The guesthouse staff was very friendly and helpful as well. As for location wise, its location near the train station too. Strongly recommended to stay with them if you have a chance to visit Firenze!

First the positives: Very near to the station. Clean and tidy. We stayed in a very small room, however the big window made things a little better. there was no AC but a ceiling fan. The rooms are on the top floor and the steps are very steep, good for only young guests. The bathroom was shared but was clean... More

Hostel is tucked in a street approximately 200 metres away from Santa Maria Novella train station. You need to confirm your arrival time as the staff are not operating around the clock. Upon arrival we pressed the doorbell on the main door but was not opened. We had to phone them to get. B&B is located on the top floor... More

Florence is amazing and this was a great place to stay while we explored the city. Just 10 mins walk from the Duomo. Although it is on the 3rd story so you have to walk up some stairs to get to it! Clean and tidy. Lovely rooms. There is a small kitchen area that has a fridge and a hob.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in June. The hostel isn't manned 24 hours a day, so they ask your arrival time before you come, but we arrived at lunch time. There was a little note on the door saying 'back in 5 minutes' ... it was more like 35 minutes but for us having a little wait isn't an issue.... More

We stayed here while in Florence and it was one of the best B&B's. We had a shared bathroom which we never had any problems with and the most comfortable bed we had on our trip to Italy! Had great accommodations - ie the kitchen that was available. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. Loved the location as we... More

Great hostel/Guesthouse. Clean, friendly staf and in the center of Florence. There is no elevator so you must walk with your luggage six stairs. For us it wasn't a problem. You van use the kitchen, washing machine ect.
