“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

We recently stayed at Casa Schlatter with a family of 9, ranging in age from 10 - 80. We took over the whole house! Alessandra was an absolutely wonderful host - making sure we were completely welcomed in the house. She was very helpful and accomodating - offering to help us book any tours, dinners, transportation arrangements. She provided us with maps of the area and pointed out recommendations for dining and sightseeing as well as the bus routes and how to call for a taxi. The house was perfect for us - very clean and comfortable - the living room area offered plenty of space for our family to gather. Alesandra does not live in the B&B, so we had a completely private house. She was 10 minutes away, if we needed anything (and we did lock ourselves out at one point and she drove right over to let us in :)). We shopped at a local market down the street for basic foods & coffee and used the small kitchen for snacks and breakfast. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you could possibly need. The house is outside of the city and does require a rental car or using taxis/buses to get around. There is a bus stop right at the corner, which we found quite easy to use to get into the city (and only takes about 10 minutes). There is also a great gelato shop at the corner...might be the best gelato in Florence! We have great memories from our stay and highly recommend Casa Schlatter.

Room Tip: Best room is the first room off the foyer with a loft above (#1, i believe)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2011

Although the house is nice, if you are planning on driving to Casa Schlatter you need to know that there is no parking. We had to park at the Soccer Stadium 5 blocks away and our car was towed, even though we had been told by the homeowner that we would be fine there. $165 euros later, we got our car back. The bedrooms are very pretty and the artwork is beautiful but the home is on a very noisy, busy street with lots of traffic. We found two good restaurants and gellato within a 10 min walking distance but the market was a good 20 min walking. Would not recommend.

alessandra-firenze4, Owner at Casa Schlatter, responded to this review, June 14, 2011
this is the first time that something so unpleasant happened with one of my clients and I am very sorry about that, their disappointment is understandable, but :

-1 As you can read in 'Hotel Amenities' it is Written: no parking
-2 In this area is possible to park easily for free and ther are big free publics parkings at Mandela Forum, 300 m far (you can see from google maps).
That is why I said, that it was correct to park there, but the street signals should be respected in any country and they do not done it.
-3 The market is on the other side of the road, it seems really strange they didn’t see it.
-4 Concerning the traffic, Florence it’s very crowded, and my B&B is in the city. Who knows Florence knows that this area, down the hill of Fiesole, is considered to be a quiet area. Anyway the house is very well sound insulate (by very thick walls of stones and by windows sounds proof).

I found very disappointing that these clients didn’t mention all the help that I gave them to get back their car as well as to take them to recuperate it at the depot.
In the future I will give parking directions in written to my guest to avoid any misunderstanding.
