Many positives to the Old Tower: queen-sized bed, private (out of room) bathroom is modern, large and clean, especially by many B&B standards. It is in the heart of Florence, just a couple of blocks from the Duomo, Palazzo Veccho, Uffizi, and more. Very convenient, very comfortable, very typical room. For those touring all day and returning only for a... More

we stayed at this b&b in september 2011 and were pleasantly surprised. considering what we paid, the room was decently clean and spacious with a detached, rather small but clean, efficient bathroom. it became a little toasty during daytime while we were there, but the two big windows helped the breeze come in and out, and the nighttime temperature was...

I'll do the negatives first, and there are only a few. First, it isn't a 4 star hotel and it really isn't a B&B in the traditional sense. It is located about 2 flights up some steep stairs. Ok, that's it for the negatives. On the positive side, it is a real winner. It would be almost impossible to beat... More

Friendly manager, well kept basic rooms. Reasonably priced, included a coffee and pastry for breakfast at a café. Coffee, tea and biscuits available in the hotel. Some street noise in the evenings from people and the street cleaner. Was difficult to get in contact with the manager to pay as the credit card machine wasn't working the day we arrived,... More

We booked a room at this "bed & breakfast" at the last minute, as our other hotel was cancelled (long story). The place is a little hard to find, but it is actually in a super great location, just minutes from everything you might want to see in the city center of Florence. We walked from here to Pitti Palace,... More

We stayed in Old Tower B & B for 6 days in June / July 2010. I would not stay there again for many reasons. Firstly, it was unhygienic in our view. We had to email the owners to ask for the towels to be changed after FOUR days of intense heat (95degrees). We also asked for bedding to be... More

This small B&B is located brilliantly in the heart of centro storico, Firenze. It's price reflects its basic amenities - the room was a little dark, but very spacious; the breakfast was not really that enticing (!), and the decorations were not to our taste. However, the WIFI was very efficient and the staff were pleasant and helpful, particularly with... More

I read the good reviews about this place and based on those opinions and the fact that this hotel has internet and private bathrooms, i decided to book it. This was easily the best lodging we had during our 10 day visit to Italy. Unfortunately we only stayed in Florence for 1 night. We arrived before they were ready for... More

You can't beat the location. It's in easy walking distance to all of the major sites in Florence. We had the room with the en suite bathroom. The bathroom was a little small, but it was clean and in good condition. The bed was lumpy and was two twins put together, but I came to learn that this is not... More
