The place is very nice and the service is excellent but this is surely not the place to go while visiting Italy. The food is very modern and over priced, not really what you are aiming for in Italy.. This is equal to any modern place you can find anywhere else in the world

This is a very good little little hotel in an excellent location to wander Florence. Marco could not be nicer or more helpful! The breakfast is great, with coffee, tea, and a selection of pastries, fruit, toast, meats, and yogurts. Overall a very pleasant stay in Florence!

I slept 1 night at Arco Antico. Marco, the manager, is welcoming and helpful. Rooms are large and clean with everything you need. Breakfast is very good and abundant. The best feature of Arco Antico is its proximity to S. Maria Novella train station and the city center, but this doesn't make it expensive: prices are really reasonable. I will... More

Everything you need/want is there: Overall pleasant with a helpful manager, room sufficiently large, clean and self contained with a decent modern bathroom with shower. Cable TV with only Italian channels (as far as I could tell because there are so many to check all) and a good working WIFI. No small fridge in the room but you can keep... More

I stayed at the Arco Antico B&B for two nights in August 2013. I chose the property because it is a 5 minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station and also because of the great reviews it has received. I was not disappointed. Unfortunately (or perhaps, fortunately) your first experience of the B&B will not be your best one.... More

The owner, Matteo, was very pleasant and helpful, from when I emailed him before leaving home to when he greeted me upon my arrival to Florence. After buzzing me in, he leaped down the stairs to help me with my suitcase and the elevator, and made me some tea in the breakfast room while my room was just finishing off... More

A nice little b&b, within a walking distance from the train station and at the same time pretty close to city center. It's just enough for a short comfortable stay in Florence. The breakfast is pretty simple, but fresh and tasty. The owner is very welcoming and pleasant. WiFi is free and stable. The shower cabin is quite small, and... More

My mother, grandmother, and I took a trip to Venice, Austria, and Florence over the summer. There were no tour guides, no packages, and very little resources for us to use. Trip advisor was our go-to when choosing places to stay, but really, we may as well have been blind going into this. Florence was our last place, and we... More

Stayed the one night at an internet rate booked on the day. Location was great for the train station. Our host was very helpful, booking us in to the Accademia the next morning so we wouldn't have to queue for David. Room was nicely appointed and clean. Breakfast was continental and quite acceptable. The compact elevator was quaint, I just... More
