Franz House is an excellent guest house if you want to explore Florence. It is close to centre next to the river, 10 minutes walk from Firenze Santa Maria Novella station and 10 minutes walk to the Duomo and the rest of the main attractions. The rooms are clean,spacious and functional and ours came with Aircon included. Giovanni, the proprietor... More

Franz House was easy to find from the train station and in a fantastic area! We were within walking distance of the Duomo and right next to the river which offered amazing views. What we loved the most is that once the windows were closed, all the noise of the city disappeared, the A/C kept us comfortable, and we slept... More

Franz House was on a floor of a lovely building, complete with a classic, slow-moving Italian elevator. The room we stayed in was beautiful with high ceilings and a huge window looking out onto the street and the main river in Florence. It was in a great location that was just a walk away from the majority of the sights... More

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 stayed with Giovanni Bacci at his B&B from 26-29 Dec 2013, 3 nights, total EUR160 incl BF (Booking.com) with my own bathroom. 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

The room is clean , the owner, Giovanni, is friendly and helpful. he gave us a map and marked the route to all the main site scenes. The shared bathroom... More
