I have to echo the remarks of other reviewers on this establishment. We had 4 days to visit the wonderful city of Florence with all its charm and history. We realised that we'd made an excellent start by choosing this place to stay. We walked with our suitcases from the drop-off place in the main square by the station; this... More

An easy taxi from the train station. Marco(the host) is extremely informative and his passion for his home city shines through. He has great local, cheap restaurant tips and gives you a detailed map of all the sights. The room was beautiful and didnt lack anything. A great place to stay when visiting Firenze.

Accademia House is ideally located; the taxi journey took approximately 20 minutes from the airport and it took us a leisurely ten minute stroll to get into the historical heart of the city. The Palazzo Medici-Riccardi was the first sight that we stumbled upon and there were plenty of shops and cafes to visit whilst walking down Via San Gallo.... More

Marco is an awesome and charming person! He was in touch with me by SMS/e-mail before my visit and it gave me extra sense of confidence and comfort. During the visit itself Marco also provided us with his advises and care; he definitely is one of the most welcoming persons I met in Italy this time!

We stayed for 2 nights in early July and we were very pleased with the stay. The location was great, just a short walk away from the main sights and restaurants. Still the area was quiet and not too crowded with tourists. The room we had was beautiful and spacius and we loved the brick ceiling. The breakfast in the... More

My wife and are on our honeymoon and this couldn't have been a better start. Marco was fantastic and very helpful. He have us recommendations for places to eat and things to see as well as kept our room very clean and neat. Location is good, a little north of things but that's actually good because it's not "tourist central".... More

Marco was wonderful! He kept his property clean. The room is spacious, even though there is no lift, he did carry all our suitcases to our room. The bed is very comfortable, felt like sleeping in your own bed! This was our second time in Florence, we stayed in the other hotel down on the street, but Academia House is... More

This is billed as a B&B but its not a B&B like you'd get in the UK. It is basically the first floor of building converted into several guestrooms. My room was spacious, clean, modern decor and furniture and had a spectacular vaulted ceiling and the bathroom was spacious. Breakfast is great - you get given vouchers for a cafe... More

Marco was very helpful, friendly and laid back. He gave us recommendations for a few restaurants - we went to two and had two fantastic, well priced meals (la Burrasca and Santo Bevitore) - and a few ideas for things to see outside the obvious ones. The room was well sized, in a lovely old building, with a really nice... More
