I stayed here for two dates in Florence. It was close to everything....shopping, restaurants, site seeing, museums. There are only five rooms so it us very intimate. 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

Nine fabulous days at Porcillino Gallery. To call this a B&B is a misnomer. If it was designated a hotel it would be rated 5 star. Five beautiful decorated rooms in the heart of Florence, with unsurpassed hospitality by the owner, Alessandra Biachini and her wonderful staff Aldo, Mark, and JR. What a delight to awaken to a full-walled photo... More

A really pleasant boutique hotel in the heart of Florence activities. The entire facility has been completely redecorated in a very interesting and tasteful way. The hotel only has 5 rooms and each has it's own theme. The room is nicely decorated with very modern bathrooms. Location is within blocks of Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, etc. It is perfect for...

Porcellino Gallery is an apartment-type complex perfectly located in the heart of Florence. It is a 3 minute walk to any of the major sites in Florence, and directly above the leather market. Alessandra and her staff of Aldo, Mark, and LJ are kind, dedicated, and very helpful. They willingly offer everything you could need. Breakfast, snacks, wine, alcohol, drinks,... More

Actually this B&B could be really great. Perfect location, nice interior, friendly staff, but it has two downsides. The location is not only an advantage, because it is almost impossible to find it with your own car and it is hard to fall asleep at nightime because of the noise outside. Second, the smell in the entire hotel is a... More
