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

I returned to Accademia House for my second honeymoon with my husband and we both loved it. I had stayed there with my daughter in 2011 and had such a great experience, I booked a week with Marco to celebrate our 20th anniversary. It was my husbands first trip to Florence and he appreciated how helpful and personable Marco was.... More

Accademia House may be terrific for guests who have stayed there, but be aware that it seems impossible to cancel a booking. (They require bookings to be guaranteed by credit card, and you must cancel no later than 15 days prior to arrival.) I have sent 2 emails receiving no response and phoned numerous times to no answer, except once,... More

I have been to accademia House two times and Marco is always friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and cosy, also tastefully decorated. The rooms have caracter and are very comfortable. Prices are resonale good value for money. I really enjoy staying at this bed and breakfast and I would definitely stay there again and recommend to my friends.

We just left Florence. The B&B was okay but we were disappointed that we were downgraded from what we had booked. Marco has a problem with his book-keeping. He was always shuffling guests around and he even had to move a couple to another hotel !! The location was okay but the website gives you a completely different impression of... More

We arrived in Florence during the night. We were kind of worried staying in a guesthouse because we were two young ladies, BUT it happened to be the best decision and best place we picked out. Marco was awesome he carried our heavy luggages up many stairs. He then showed our room, and the keys for each door including the... More

We arrived in Florence on the train from Rome, in the middle of a warm day. From SMN station, it was roughly a 15 min walk to Accademia House. This proved to be a slight challenge, as we wheeled our suitcases through the narrow footpaths of Florence under the midday sun! Marco was kind enough to help us carry our... More

We felt very welcome on arrival at Accademia House - Marco was a terrific host with a great sense of humour and a willingness to help in any way possible. We were very grateful that he made some phone calls on our behalf to confirm some tours that we'd booked. Our room was very spacious with view to the street... More

Marco was quick to reply to all of my email queries. Unlike some previous posts before about not being able to check in, Marco was flexible to my requests despite having changed our arrival time several times. We stayed at the Antiq room, which was able to accomodate the 3 of us. The shower was spacious, rooms were good. Although... More
