Close to the railway station and Duomo. Plenty of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Outside to the right a few meters away is a very good cafe with great coffee and sandwiches which opens early. The rooms are small but well maintained. Very good shower. OK air conditioning. The manager was helpful and friendly. Excellent wi-fi. Tiny TV. Fridge available.

Centrally located, ideal If you're on a budget and a hostel-like place where, only the essentials like towels and a clean room to sleep are covered. Definitely stay here. You'll be 5 min walk from Central train station, 5 min walk to the duomo, 2 min walk to Mercato Centrale and 10min to ponte veccio.

Close to train station. Lorenzo took such good care of us, gave us lots of good information. The hotel is also very close to the Duomo and major museums. The room was cozy and had a nice shower. Great place when on a budget!

A great little place very close to the train station and most everything we wanted to see in Florence. Our room was lovely, clean, and spacious compared to other hotels, and far enough from the street it was fairly quiet. Lorenzo was a great host and nice to chat with. We'd happily stay here again if we visit Florence in... More

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.
