Don’t stay at this place! Its dangerous!. My wife, was traveling with my daughter in Florence, Italy, and we chose Residenza B&B Cantagalli to stay from Sept 17 to Sept 22. The place is basically a flat with a few bedrooms on a second floor, which, so far was OK, but still gave me a feeling the place had no... More

Matteo V, Proprietario at B&B Residenza Cantagalli, responded to this review

We would like to clarify that this misunderstanding occurred because the clients requested a specific room that was already occupied at the time. Their reservation for five nights did not include such an option and was all the more impossible to accomodate in this situation, where a preference had not been expressed beforehand. There was then an additional misunderstanding regarding... More

Not recommended. The ac is not cool - I was up all night tossing and turning in the hot sheets. They come in and turn off the ac if you leave it on. I'm not super pumped about then coming into my room when Im not there. The "breakfast" is one pastry and one coffee nearby. The description says nothing... More

We specify that the B&B is a few steps from the Boboli Gardens and about 800 mt from the Pitti Palace. The air conditioning works regularly in all rooms and no customers have never complained for it. The hotel maid is authorized to enter into the rooms. This is her task. And this is the usual practice in all hotels.... More

The residence has spacious and charming rooms (with fresco-style painted walls), equipped with airconditioning facilities and free wi-fi (wow!). Excellent cleanliness and housekeeping services too. Lift is also available. There is no reception or luggage room (given this is not a hotel) but the residence is 100% and 24hr accessible - really feels like home! Location is also superb -... More

The b&b is nice, it is basically a flat with four rooms and a shared hallway in a multi-story building. It is located on the 3rd floor. If you have a lot of luggage, there is a lift, but it is tiny. You may have to make a few trips to get your bags up. The owner, Matteo, met us... More

I initially thought that this B&B was a little bit farther from the center, at least farther than where we wanted to be but it is an easy walk. The accommodations are great, clean & cozy room with all the amenities we needed. The host, Matteo is very charming and very eager to please. Breakfast is included at a local... More

We found this beautiful structure on tripadvisor and we didn't get wrong by chosing it. The place is very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for visiting the Folrence center, Pitti Palace and Boboli Garden, you can reach them in few minutes. I want to thank Matteo for his courtesy and kindness and I hope to come back to... More

This was one of the best places I have every stayed in Europe. The decor is absolutely charming,and the rooms are very comfortable. I recommend all Americans to stay here; the owner is so nice and will take great care of you. It is a true cultural experience beyond your standard, cliche, tourist-filled, hotel.
