We have just been in Florence for 12 days and all the time we stayed at Ridolfi Guest House, even when visiting the small villages around Florence we came back the end of the day to Florence again. Staying at Ridolfi was really very good. Eliseo, the owner, is the kindest person a visitor can meet in a B&B and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ridolfi Guest House for two nights in July, and have nothing but praise. The location is excellent, within walking distance to the station and central Florence. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious and had good air conditioning. Despite the fact the bathroom was external, it was our own private bathroom and was incredibly... More

We had an amazing experience at the Ridolfi Guest House. It was a fast walk from the train station, which we found to be very important for travel days. The owner was so amazingly helpful and friendly. He gave us great advice on restaurants and places not to miss. We had mentioned that we would arrive a little before check-in,... More

We enjoyed our stay in this B&B. Our room was big and quite. The place has a kitchen. The room was also very clean and the place has a character. The owner was friendly and responsive. The only thing that we had to pay extra for checking after 5pm since there is no 24 hours on-site person.

This B&B is located near Santa Maria Novella train station. It is hard to tell there is a B&B unless you know the house number and how to arrive there, but the rooms are really top notch, very clean, the bed was comfortable and the owner was very friendly giving us very good recommendations of places to go and where...

We stayed four nights, in two different rooms. The new owners, Fabio and Giuliana, were sweet, delightful youngsters (to us in our sixties), anxious to be accommodating and helpful. They met us with two glasses of the (apparently regular Italian flavor) sweet, red orange juice upon arrival. Ten minute walk from the train station, twenty minutes to all the sights,... More

The location is quite close to the main attractions (about 10 min walk),the room is comfortable and big, the owner is very kind and the envionment very warm. Very nice the breakfast served in the room, made us feel at home. The price was a little bit high for a B&B but not bad for easter period.

We booked into the Ridolfi Guest House after reading rave reviews on TripAdvisor, but it wasn't quite what we expected. Emilio was very congenial, and he met us at the door on our arrival. He gave us a map and pointed out points of interests and good restaurants. We were a bit surprised to learn that our "private" bathroom was... More

Grazzie Barbara for your super friendly welcome :) We had a very cute room, with a high ceiling "a l'italienne" and very quiet. Great location, 10-15 mn walk to il duomo and 10 mn from train station. We'll definitely go back.
