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!

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

We stayed for 2 weeks at Casa Rovai. The staff and owners were extremely hospitable and helpful. The moment we arrived, they oriented us to our surroundings in the heart of Florence. There is as small vine covered balcony off the main lobby overlooking a courtyard for a quiet moment. Our room was spacious if a bit plain with an... More

Casa Rovai was a part of our great experience in Firenze! The location was superb and we had much help with directions, dining suggestions, and other necessary information both before and during our stay! The building had a nice historical feel and Anna shared some of its interesting history with us. There was an included breakfast buffet that provided a... More

The Casa Rovai is a great guest house. The other reviews are correct and this is a place that offers a great location, clean and spacious rooms with the most friendliest, most kind staff. There is no elevator and the entrance is tucked away. If you are coming from the train station or airport, we suggest taking a taxi to... More
