“Italian penzione in the heart of Florence”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2009

Pros: Clean, comfortable, free Wi-Fi, centrally located, accommodating owners Maria & Francesco.
Cons: No elevator, no breakfast and noisy if your room faces the street.
Maria was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and sites to see. She made sure we were comfortable and gave us a fan since the weather was warm. If Katti House had an elevator I would stay there again.
I would recommend this hotel with the reservations about no elevator and no A/C.
Katti House has Rick Steves' stamp of approval.

which is just down via Faenza from Katti House. No breakfast, but large & pleasant room in interesting building, and the price was very right.

I actually stayed at their alternate hotel down the street a bit. I found the location to be very good. Internet cafe across the street and laundry down the street. The only problem I had was that since it was October, they had turned the AC off in the rooms. It was still rather warm so I had to sleep with the windows open and there was a lot of noise from below. With the windows closed, I didn't hear any noise.

I can't say enough about this place. For the price it is amazing. The location is great it is a five minute walk from the Duomo and train station. We spent 65 euros / night and it was a steal. The room is very spacious and comes with a private bath. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. If all you need is a comfy quiet room as your home base for sightseeing then I highly recommend this B&B.

My sister and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Soggiorno Anna Maria, Katti House B&B. The room was beautiful, a bit small but can't expect more for the price, very clean, good shower pressure, nice bed, beautiful building, very central, in walking distance to mostly everything, just around the corner from the street market. The owners were great - they suggested a wonderful restaurant just up the street - Antichi Cancelli - which I highly recommend. I'd go back any time.

the room was great, ac worked, nice and clean, great location. only issue, and it's minor, is you want to make sure you know where to check in. you need to check in at the katti hotel (there is an awning out front). verify the # so you can find it easily. i would recommend this place

We loved Kattie House. Our host was sweet and friendly. She made reservations for the museums as I had requested. The room was comfortable, clean, safe, and traditionally decorated. The house was centrally located. They also had free internet.
