If you're on a budget and would like to be right in the middle of the city to see all the sights, restaurants, markets and within walking distance to the train station - Firenze S.M.N. This is the best place to stay! Wifi is ALWAYS a seller for me! I found this place appropriate for what I wanted! A safe... More

Lorenzo and Anna, the owners of Casa Billi, genuinely care about providing a pleasant and comfortable place to stay. As a first time traveler to Europe -- alone, mind you -- I felt like I had instant friends in Florence. The room was exactly what I needed. Comfortable bed, plenty of space, A/C. Shared bathrooms are never ideal, but it's... More

I stayed here May 2014. This is not a hotel but a guest house so there is no large signage. I had a little trouble finding it initially but once I did, I couldn't figure out why it was so hard because it's only about a 2 or 3 minute walk from the train station. Once you arrive, you have... More

Located on a car-free street midway between the train station and the Duomo (5-7 min walk to each), Casa Billi is quite convenient. It is hard to classify it as a hotel, because the friendly owner/staff is only on site as needed for guest check-in. Our room (#1) was clean, spacious and quite functional. WiFi worked and room was cleaned... More

Italian hotels on a budget are always a challenge, but we were immediately impressed by the friendly couple who own this establishment! They were do welcoming, helpful and friendly. We got a great orientation to the hotel, as well as helpful tips for the city. The rooms are small and a little noisy. The shared bathroom was very small.

A 5 minute walk from the train station, so a good location. The owner was very nice and helpful. Good value for money. Bathroom was shared with other guests but had no problem with that. Only problem we had was taking the suitcases up the stairs (there is an elevator, but not for guest usage). Would recommend.

Booked Casa Billi as a result of having stayed at the Beehive in Rome and using the cross-pollinate resource. The location is good. The desk is not staffed 24 hours. Shared bathroom was ok. Could not access wifi for some reason.

We booked 3 rooms for 6 people at Casa Billi through Cross-Pollinate.com. First, Cross-Pollinate was a great resource for finding this place and they were very helpful in the booking process. As for Casa Billi: Lorenzo, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable, each with a small fridge, armoire, and updated bathroom. The... More

Hotel is well located to exclude local transportation: 7 minutes’ walk to station, same distance to the Center. It is on 2nd floor of the building. There is no lift for hotel guests. I had room n.1 and this is equipped with good double bad, wardrobe, cooler, air-conditioner, TV and 1 chair. No table. No glasses. No sound proofing around.... More

We stayed here in June 2012 and were generally happy with our stay! Check your arrival time as if you arrive after 3pm you will need to let them know (I did via email) as the desk is not manned 24/7. We arrived at 3.30pm and they were fine with this and very friendly. After check in you don't see... More
