The b&b was very easy to find, and I was so excited to see it was right next to Dante's house and church! How cool. It's about a 2 minute walk from the Duomo as well. Very well located, walkable to everything. The host was so helpful, telling us everything we needed to know, might want to know, and should... More

Remember this is a house not a hotel just confirm your reservation directly with the place not matter what search engine you use, it's located in a great area just behind Dante Alighieri's house and 2 blocks from the Duomo, Mr Sani is extremely nice, sweet and helpful, there was a problem with our reservation but he managed to give...

Its a cheap guest house in the centre of Florence. At night it was noisy from the street and I had issues with mosquitoes. (take note they bite). Owner was very friendly, room was very small. When I arrived the owner explained that he didn't have a room for me but had booked me into another hotel across the street... More

I booked this guest-house with booking.com as I usually do. However, my flight got a 3h delay and, in consequence, I arrived 21:05 at the property in which I found a note containing the 2 e-mails he had been sending me since 19:40, telling that the guest-house was not a hotel with 24h service, that my reservation was cancelled as...

After searching hopelessly in the wonderful streets of Florance you will find a very tiny sign board with the name of the hotel on it. you ring the bell and you will enter a dark corridor and a very interesting old lift which 2 of us could hardly fit in. specially having luggage. you have to close 3 doors of...

I stayed for two nights in Sani's, and I'll stay again if needed. The building, as every building in Florence, is very well taken cared, the rooms were cozy and everything was clean and the wireless internet was pretty good. Mr. Sani is very nice and helpful. Besides all that, the location I think is key. The value for money... More

We stay there for 3 nights; the location was fantastic. The rooms were on the small side, especially the bathroom, but nice and clean. The staff seemed grumpy and weary at first but he turned out to be very friendly and helpful. The complementary breakfast was provided at lovely local cafe down the street, the selection was a choice of... More
