“Everything I could have hoped for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

This was such a perfect find. I mean, the location alone is full of win; and it being in a medieval building *with the stonework intact* was pure gold for history nerds like me; but what really made Casa dei Tintori shine was how welcoming and warm and accommodating our hosts were. They took such good care of us! Breakfast was abundant and delicious, the coffee was perfect, good touristing advice was liberally given. I was also secretly grateful that I did not have to fall back on my feeble single semester of Italian 101 to communicate (though somewhat ashamed that I didn't take the opportunity to try).

I stayed in the "Verde" room with my best friend and her mother, and it was quite comfortable and spacious for us, all our clothes, and all the things we bought--which is no small amount of stuff, let me tell you.

On our arrival on Monday morning Alfredo was there to meet us to take over our luggage so that we could go for a stroll and have some lunch while our room was being prepared. From then on Ricardo and Lavinia were on hand and looked after us impeccably right up to our departure on Friday afternoon. Nothing was too much trouble for them and all advice and suggestions were spot on, especially the restaurant some 20 metres away where we ate on 3 out of our 4 nights. Our room,the Indigo room, was spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with fresh croissants and pastries arriving each morning. The B&B is ideally situated and we walked everywhere apart from taking transport to the station when we left. I could not recommend this amazing 13th century house more strongly on all accounts.

This B&B was such a comfortable place! The classical European interior of course is charming, but the real charm of this B&B is the people. Riccardo and Lavinia's hospitality made me feel like I was visiting friend's home. You can feel that they really enjoy what they do and that makes you feel at home. It was my first time to visit Italy but I felt so comfortable because I knew that I had "home" to come back to at the end of the day. All the tourist sites like Uffizi, Duomo, and Ponte Vecchio are walking distance from here. I would love to visit this beautiful city again soon, and I will surely stay at this B&B!

The B&B has an excellent location, within walking distance of all the major sites in Florence.
Riccardo was extremely helpful in picking up admission tickets for us to several museums and
in answering all questions that we had about the city. Lavinia put on a beautiful breakfast and was very friendly, and both Riccardo and Lavinia created a very comfortable and friendly feeling.
We stayed in the Red room. Thank you for a great experience.

The B&B has a great location; we walked everywhere without ever having to take a bus. We were happy we could meet Riccardo, Lavinia, Alfredo and Valeria and could learn about local customs, restaurants and museums directly from them. Our conversations made us feel part of their family. This is what we are looking for when we travel: learn how people live in different parts of the world. Art and architecture of Florence are rich and wonderful, but people make Florence shine even brighter! We would like to return one day...

This is a lovely, friendly and character filled family run B&B. Riccardo looked after us very well with local transport info, tips and restaurant reservations. The room was charming and comfortable. The location is great - in walking distance to all the main sites. We will stay here again if we are back in Florence! Thank you!

If you are looking for a well located B&B close to all the main sites in Florence and local restaurants then look no further. Riccardo and Lavinia give this a homely and welcoming feel, with plenty of local information if you require. They have great attention to detail which gives their establishment a superior feel.
There was very detailed information on how to get there on arrival at the station (in our circumstances) by foot, taxi or bus.

Room Tip: We had the smallest room (yellow room) and still had plenty of space and a great shower room.
