Really nice boutique hotel with extremely friendly owners and staff. We loved the breakfast and trying the (free) wine from the vineyard they own. Our room was nicely decorated and it has an amazing location by the square with the famous il porcellino boar. Brilliantly located for the galleries of Florence. The only potential criticism is the location is almost... More

Beautiful five room hotel in a perfect location in the middle of downtown Florence, steps from everything. No elevator, so rooms all rooms are two floors up from the street. Room was beautifully decorated, staff was great, wifi, etc. The only downside is the noise. It was noisy late some evenings and then some mornings as the vendors set up... More

The Porcellino is right on the Nouvo Market square and just outside the Porcellino statue. It's location is very central in the old town with no piazza or main site more than 15 minutes walk away. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you, especially Mariella. Breakfast is always fresh and laid for you, based on a... More

I stayed in this lovely boutique hotel for a couple of nights last June. The location is great, very central, in the heart of the Centro Storico, close to the main sights in Florence. The room was very cosy, the service extremely friendly and helpful. A good breakfast is served in the salon, with fresh fruit salad, pastries, etc. Every... More

I can't say enough about this beautiful boutique hotel. The management is extremely accommodating and friendly. The rooms are super clean and immaculately taken care of. The location could not be more central and perfect. The decor is stunning and a work of art. From the first day until the last, I was gleaming with joy because I could not... More

There's no elevator but staff will schlep your bags for you. Be advised that it may be difficult to find as it is a small place and the busy market is right in... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. I have no idea how this place gets positive reviews. Nice as the rooms and location may be you will find it IMPOSSIBLE to get any sleep here. The windows overlook a street filled with restaurants rowdy til late at night and somewhere else nearby playing music with a thumping bass. I always travel with bionic... More

We had a lovely time in Florence and enjoyed our stay at this quirky place in a central location. The room and view were great. There were some very special touches like the offer of a glass of local wine. Breakfast was served in the lounge. LJ was so helpful and appeared to work very hard to help guests. I... More
