“Good value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

The B&B is strategically located close both to Piazza del Duomo and the railway station.
The room, in an ancient house, was rather charming, and Mrs Annamaria and her kind family gave us a warm welcome. The room was quiet.
I think it's really good value for money.

Soggiorno Annamaria Location: Florence, Tuscany, Italy, Europe We selected this hotel from the Rick Steves book. After the first night we noticed bites on my wife and myself and suspected them to be bed bugs. After inspecting the mattress, we found it incased in a plastic bag and per web sites that is usually and indication of previous bed bug infestations. We sent a note to the owner and she is disputing that they were not bed bugs. We have never been bitten by bed bugs before but the bite marks sure look like pictures on numerous web sites. Other than the bed bugs we found the room ok although the floor needed cleaned in our room.

I spent 3 nights at the Soggiorno Annamaria" last October. The room was wonderful and very clean, the breakfast excellent. The owner Maria helpful and very nice italian lady. The location perfect to visit Florence just walking. Highly recommended.

Soggiorno Annamaria is one of two hotels (the other is Katti House) under common ownership and management on Via Faenza, a few blocks from the train station in Florence, and just up the street from the Mercato Centrale and street market - check-in for both is done at Katti House. (If no one is there when you come by, check at the Katti House restaurant a few doors to the left). Soggiorno Annamaria is in a refurbished renaissance palazzo with period sgraffito designs on the outside walls.

The room is large for a Euro-hotel with a modern bathroom and good furnishings. The owner is friendly and helpful. But the outstanding feature was the new windows - large wood-framed windows that fit in well with the heritage building. Double-glazed and double windows. The ground floor of the building is occupied by a pizzeria with seating on the street, with a lot of background chatter. While there's not a lot of traffic on the street there's an ongoing buzz of activity and passersby. But with the windows closest, no sound penetrates. The result - perhaps the quietest hotel we'd ever slept in. A great upgrade!

I selected this lodging based on information from Rick Steves and other TripAdviisor reviews. This was one of the few times we were disappointed.

The location is great. It's a short walk from the train station and an easy walk to the sights in Florence. No problem here.

The room itself was fairly nice, well decorated, adequate bed, but definitely inadequate air conditioning, which wouldn't matter so much except that the room overlooks the street which can be quite noise in the evenings and early morning if you open the windows. The big problem was the shabby bathroom. The shower doors were off their track and falling out, so they wouldn't close. The worst was that the water varied from something less than luke warm to, most of the time, cold. And this was true for any time of day we used it, on any of the days. And apparently it wasn't just our room, based on others' comments. The toilet was somewhat loose and wabbly and the lid was wired on since the normal attachment had broken. There was a plastic glass provided which might have been clean, but didn't look so with what appeared to be a black growth in the bottom, so we didn't use it.

Breakfast was provided in a breakfast room at her other location (a few doors away), the Katti House. It was a continental breakfast but less than normal and not all that appealing.

Given the location and the quality of the bedroom, with some fixing and care this could be a much better lodging. And it needs improvement in the breakfast, which is a bit surprising since she also runs the restaurant next door to her Katti house. We did not eat in her restaurant since I found it odd that Rick Steves recommended the lodging but did not discuss the restaurant.

Charming Guest House in center of Florence close to the places to visit. The house and the room was very clean and charming. The owner was kind and told us some tips to find a cheaper Parking in Firenze.

I advise also to take the breakfast: it's a very good buffet (Food & drinks as Capuccino).

This July, a group of ten friends decended twice upon Soggiorno Anna Maria and Katti House, almost across the alley from each other.. Both times, we had excellent rooms, consistantly warm and friendly service, and found the restaurant they owned to be like home cooking and a family home experience. This hotel is perfectly located, close to the train and major sites. Yet it is on a side street which shelters it from the crowds. Our visits were 3 weeks apart from each other and our return felt like a reunion. I even felt safe to ask them to hold a bag for me between my two visits who I wouldn't have to haul it through 3 countries. Finding out how to check in was just one of the fun stories to tell later. It was simple, once we realized how it all worked. I highly recommend them, their facilities and their restaurant!!
