We stayed in this B&B for 3 nights: we really appreciated the atmosphere: an ancient building, but with every modern need in the rooms. And the owners, mother and son, were very kind and helpful. Breakfast was abundant and good, and not to forget, the location was perfect to reach all main Florence attraction in a five minute walk. All... More

My friends and I stayed here in the first weeks of June 2014. The first best thing I can say about De'Benci B&B is the lovely hosts. Carlo and Sara were very accommodating and friendly, and always there to assist us notably in our queries regarding bus schedules, getting a taxi, etal. One of my friends celebrated her 40th birthday,... More

We only stayed one night previous to our departure from Italy the next day, but it was a great ending to our two weeks. The pleasant owner, Carlo, met us with a smile and spent time getting to know us. We knew our way around Florence fairly well by this last-day return, so finding the B and B was no... More

the rooms are big and spotlessly clean. The street is definately noisy due to the clubs: they all close at the same time, and out spills the revellers. I normally sleep like a log but got woken every night, even Sunday. Its nice to have a fourth floor room with a window but its of little use if the shutter... More

Perfect location, close to everything we were interested in, historical sites, good restaurants close by, markets, squares, churches, etc. There is even an Information Office around the corner from Santa Croce Basilica two blocks away from the B&B where we booked all our tours. Rooms are very spacious and decorated with taste while preserving the antique character of the place.... More

The B&B is ideally located in the very heart of Florence, literally 10 steps away from the Santa Croce church. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms are big and very clean. Although I read about issues with key transfer in case of late arrivals, we had no problems at all in picking up the keys from a restaurant nearby. For... More

This quaint B & B is just 1/2 block from the Opera Della Santa Croce and a 10-15 minute walk to almost everything else. Carlo is warm, enthusiastic and eager to make your stay as pleasant as he can. The other reviews are correct about the rooms. They are spacious and appointed as if you're in an older Tuscan villa.... More

This is a very good B&B right in the heart of the old city. It is only a few minutes walk to just about everything in Florence? The rooms are ample, well furnished and clean. All amenities are good. The breakfast is more than adequate for a continental style. Carlo is very friendly and helpful with suggested places to go... More

De' Benci B&B is Located close to every thing. Minutes to wonderful restraunts and great shops. 5 minutes from the train station and only meters to Santa Croce. Carlo, is a wonderful host, the rooms are clean and modern. Great value!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of the old city of Florence, just between Piazza Santa Croce and Piazza della Signoria, there is De Benci b&b, bed and breakfast in Florence, ideal base for visiting one of the most beautiful cities on earth and its art.The visit, the discovery of the capital of the Renaissance already begins within the walls of De Benci b&b.The atmosphere is very charming, stylish and romantic: you will be welcomed into elegantly furnished suites with every modern comfort (air conditioning/heating, private bathroom in room, digital lcd tv - DTV, internet connection, Etc.).The bed and breakfast is on the fourth floor of an ancient building (dating back to 1300) with the recent installation of modern lift.The thick and textured interior walls are painted rose. The doors are as light as ivory. Very wide windows let the light go in. The typical Tuscan floor and the ancient wooden-beam ceiling enrich the entire structure. In all over the place you can find small details in characteristic stone (i.e. pietra serena), in ancient brick or in dark wrought iron and brass that decorate the environment, but soft colour and scent of wood reign over all. Every detail has been chosen with great care, taste and passion. ... more   less
