My dad and I stayed there 3 nights and we were very satisfied with our choice. The location is perfect, our room was great and the breakfast was very good. The owner was very friendly and helpful too. I would stay there again if I come back to Florence.

Great location, well appointed, great value. Excellent choice in Florence. Plus: A perfect location for visitng the "must see" places in Florence. Fast free internet (free Wi-Fi for your devices, or free PC too .) Just few steps to local market place Piazza Lorenzo Ghilberti (a little authentic experience!). Great breakfasts. Minus: Nothing. Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple.... More

An absolutely delightful place to stay, and the perfect setting for the complete Florentine experience! Casa Rovai strikes the perfect balance between a Renaissance palazzo (with its centuries-old frescos) and modern comfort. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful, and make fantastic cake! The owners are the most wonderful family- uncommonly kind and remarkably knowledgeable about their city. You are... More

I stayed at Casa Rovai for a long weekend in January. I was enchanted by the place and the people - all so lovely and welcoming. It has the perfect combination of making you feel at home and able to mingle with other guests and staff while allowing for your privacy as well. All with the bonus of blissful quiet... More

Had a (4) girls trip to Firenze in February 2014. We stayed at Casa Rovai, and even though we arrived very late at night the staff welcomed us and as we were the only guests, they offered us better rooms than we'd booked. You certainly get what you pay for since the staff is both flexible and provides excellent service.

We had a wonderful and comfortable stay at Casa Rovai. Having a double and single room linked was really great and our daughter loved the mural on the ceiling of her room. Our bed was large and really comfortable, the breakfast was very generous with a freshly baked cake and freshly made fruit salad each day. We walked to Casa... More

The first impression when u enter the place is good. (that is after climbing the stairs with ur bags, since there is no lift). The staff is nice and gave us a warm welcome. Location is good. about 5 mins walk from the Duomo. The room was okay, with a rustic kind of feel to it. The room is spacious.... More

I stayed a full month at Casa Rovai in central Florence while attending a language school. Eliza at the front desk was extremely helpful providing ticket reservations and answering all my questions. The breakfast with extras like cappuccino, freshly baked cake and fresh fruit was a nice surprise! My room was delightful and the heat was turned on as it... More

Casa Rovai is a great place to stay over if you want to be close to the city center and you need a nice, clean and comfortable bed. The owner was very helpful and friendly and recommended sites to see, where to go for dinner while staying there and he also helped us to make bookings at museums we wanted... More
