Hotel Franz is very conveniently located and is actually only 6 rooms 2 stories up in a renaissance house built for Amerigo Vespucci's family (how cool is that!). Giovanni was so helpful orienting us to the must see sights of the city and marking them on a map for us. We'd come prepared about what we wanted to see, but... More

I enjoyed my stay considering I was on a super tight budget and wanted the least expensive accomm possible in the CENTRE of the city. If you come with an open mind and the right expectations, you...

The hotel is just as the pictures, not fancy. It's in the best place in Firenze in just a few minutes walk from interesting place! Giovani was pretty atencious gave us a map with all coordinates so we won't miss anything, and breakfast was wonderful, with home made pancakes and eggs!

The Franz House is a wonderful place to stay while in Florence - just a short walk from the train station, right across the street from the Arno River, and another short walk to the old city center. We (4 ladies) spent a whole week enjoying Florence and had a wonderful room with a view of the river and our... More

We spent 5 nights at this hotel. On our arrival Giovanni the owner welcomed us warmly and took time to share his knowledge of Florence with us, the main areas of importance, which was a big help during our stay. We opted for the extra breakfast every morning which was well worth it. Giovanni cooked it fresh every morning and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in October. Seriously located perfectly! No matter where we wanted to go we only seemed to be 5 minutes walking away! The host was nice, he sat down and pointed to us all the great things to see, where to get the best gelato and sandwiches. They serve breakfast for a low cost but be... More
