“Enjoyable B&B in heart of Florence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Our stay at La Casa dei Tintori was very enjoyable. Alfredo upgraded us to the red room when another reservation had been cancelled (we had booked the new room). Worked out well since we got the daily in-house breakfasts. I wasn't all that crazy about the tartes / cereal offered, but was more than happy with my bread, nutella, and yogurt. Alfredo was very kind and gave us great restaurant tips and directions - very patient! Our only gripes would be that the red room, while beautiful, could be a bit better lit. It was hard to get natural light in there and the overhead light was pretty dim. The other thing was we got kinda lost getting to the B&B, since we didn't know which direction on the bus line from the train station to go (the same bus line left from two different locations)! Chalk that up to inexperienced tourists who didn't have a guidebook, but it would have been great to have even more specifics on the B&B website to that effect. Take the bus from right next to the building, not out in the median!
Anyway, great stay in a beautiful city.

The inn is in a great location and it is super easy to navigate anywhere in the city from. Also, Alfredo and Valeria were so welcoming and made my stay wonderful. The room was quiet and cool and has a great local bar right down the street. I would recommend this b&b!

If kind, helpful service makes a difference to you, along with a gorgeous room with an authentic feel and a perfect breakfast, I recommend this place. We were in the Green Room, which was unique and beautiful and gave us a hidden platform to stash all our shopping. It's close to the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi, and everything else, very central. Great air conditioning, and the breakfast is an enormous spread of cereal, yogurt, pastries, coffee made to order, juices, etc - perfect way to start the day. The only warning that we wished we'd gotten was for the mosquitos - we didn't have repellant and the contraption they provided didn't seem to do much.

Alfredo and Valeria were super helpful, too, assisting with museum tickets and wine tastings and car rentals. It made a huge difference. Would definitely return.

Brad, Montreal

Room Tip: Green room, bring mosquito repellant you can sleep in.

Alfredo, Valeria, Riccardo and Lavinia made us feel at home in their charming B&B. This famiily is truly a gem! Delicious breakfast every day, very clean rooms and helpful staff, and the location is excellent...close to the center but on a more quiet street. There is one bus stop across from the B&B and another one around the corner, and plenty of great restaurants in the area, too. We visited Florence at the end of June and it was very hot and crowded. So, being able to walk to the B&B and get a respite before dinner was so helpful. We will stay here when we visit Florence again.

Room Tip: Red room is excellent. The Azzure room is rather small.

Alfredo and his family made us feel really welcome and their home was decorated with such style and care that it all created a feeling of being home! The position of their B&B was perfect...close enough to the centre of all the activity but just far enough away that you could escape the crowds at the end of a busy activity filled day. Having free wifi at the B&B was great too as being in contact with home and business was important to us too.

We were most excited about this B&B during our recent trip to Italy. We got the Red Room, and it was truly special. Our only complaint would be that it was semi warm, but we were there in the heat of Summer, July. Probably won't do Italy in July again, it was a wonderful trip, but dang hot.

The breakfasts were fabulous, and the location amazing.

Room Tip: The Red Room was amazing! Huge, comfortable, and high vaulted ceilings.

This B&B is in a great location, within the heart of Florence and close to many attractions, yet on a smaller quieter street. The room was clean and accommodated a family of four (master bed was comfortable, beds for kids lacked a little support). Alfredo was helpful with restaurant recommendations and his wife made sure that my son had breakfast (a nice selection of food) eventhough he slept in. The wifi worked well and was easy to access. There is one long flight of stairs up with no elevator (can be difficult with heavy bags). The place has character and charm but looks a little smaller and older in person than it did in the pictures. Overall, we were happy with our stay here.
