This is an excellent choice, charming, quiet, yet in the heart of the city. We enjoyed the possibility to get a different type of room at each of our stays as the owner is a wonderful professional keen on providing her customers with maximum comfort. Some rooms have authentic frescos from the 1600 and are small and cozy, others provide... More

It is a bed and breakfast, so you should not expect a 4star hotel environment. But having said that, it definitely deserve a high position in the B&B ranking. What I mostly appreciated is that Stefania really care, and having somebody who really care makes the difference.

My recent visit to Florence was enhanced by this guest house which is centrally and ideally located for the main attractions of the city. The Uffizi art gallery for High Renaissance Art, Galileo Galilei museum, Galleria dell' Accademia (Michelangelo's 'David'), the Pontevecchio and the Boboli gardens, are all within 15/20 minutes walk in a friendly and safe city environment. Walk... More

Casa Rovai was full of character- in a perfect position to see the city, with huge, character filled, airy rooms- spotlessly clean. No mosquitoes in the bedrooms which was a big benefit. The only downside was that Elisa was away when we stayed, so it was very, very quiet, and the shower was tiny- but who goes to Florence to... More

We are not much of the "touristy" type and tried to avoid the traps but still see the famous sights of Florence. La Casa Rovai made that possible for us! Elisa gave us great recommendations on where to eat like a local and because of the location we were a 5-10 minute walk (at the most!) to every tourist attraction.... More

Casa Rovai was a lovely oasis, walking distance from all the main sites. Our room was spacious and clean and the ceiling decor was great! The staff were wonderful: friendly and great for information. Anna and her staff gave us lots of helpful hints on where to go and when. The shower drainage in our room a bit intermittent which... More

We returned to Casa Rovai this summer for another visit to Florence. This time, the room and service were as wonderful as on our first visit. The rooms at Casa Rovai are lovely, quiet and comfortable, and the service is friendly and helpful. Plus...Casa Rovai is located close to everything--the Duomo, the Uffizi, and other major sites in Florence. We'd... More

Casa Rovai is simply terrific. Charming guest house with authentic rooms, perfect location and great service. Anna and her staff are attentive and welcoming, and the location is ideal for walking to the duomo, the market or any one of the major art attractions in the city. I'd definitely recommend staying at Casa Rovai!

I had read other reviews but am always skeptical until I see it with my own eyes. I was so pleased!! My room was on the upper floor, big, clean and modern. Bathroom had a beautiful large shower with a waterfall shower head. Most importantly the air conditioning worked exellenrly. Breakfast was lovely as were all the staff members. Seems... More
