“Great Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Olga's House was a great. Roberto who runs the B&B is very nice and helpful. We loved the location--Piazza Signoria. It was clean and quiet. Just be know that there is no elevator and there are 80 steps up to Olga's House.....so you can eat gelato everyday! :) This might be cumbersome for some. I would recommend it and definitely stay again. Thank you Roberto!

Ciao Roberto! This was my second trip to Olga's house and I am so pleased I returned. Roberto was helpful and friendly, welcoming us to this gem of a b&b. Comfact, comfortable and extremely modern, it is the location that makes this hotel an absolutely brilliant place to stay in my favourite city in the world. Literally a stone's throw from THE most beautiful and central piazza in the city - Piazza della Signoria. Breakfast is Italian style...standing up, fast, strong coffee and delicious pastries...just what's needed before a day of sightseeing round Florence. There is a 1am curfew and although perhaps on one night it would be great to extend this a little, it did not dampen our trip and we had some brilliant nights out in the city, making it back to Olga's on time. There are many steps up to Olga's, so for those who find it difficult to climb far, this is perhaps not the place for you...however, we absolutely LOVED out stair climbs everyday as we felt that the more we did it, the more vino and Tiramisu we earnt each day!!...a great way to burn off those calories. Roberto was the perfect host as always and I look forward to visiting Olga's house again - this is the only place I would ever stay in beautiful Florence.

I spent the last 3 days in April in Florence and stayed at Olga's. Read all the reviews before booking. Yes, the room was small, the curfew is at 11 pm and cable TV was like 7 Italian stations and MTV (so no CNN or BBC).

But, the room suited by needs. The location is just off the Piazza della Signoria and you have H&M on one side, Chanel on the other. Rivoire is next to Chanel and you get a 5 euro card to have coffee and a pastry (I only used it once, next day had breakfast near Santa Croce and last day I had to catch a 6 am taxi .. BUT, the caffe latte at Rivoire was freakin' awesome!)

Room Tip: book early!

Excellent location, good value, would use again. The 1am curfew may be a problem for some people

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2010

Greeted very badly and rudely for arriving at the wrong time I nearly walked out. On the plus side, the place is very central and it's clean and roomy, very close to the heart of the city and all the attractions. Moreover despite this it is not noisy, it is possible to shut the noise and buzz out and get a good sleep. On the down side it has a total lack character, it's not cheap. Good place for a two night stay then you start to yearn for an armchair and somewhere to relax.

This B&B is in a very central location near the major attractions in Florence, as well as walking distance to/from SMN train station. There is also an active nightlife and great shopping, all within walking distance.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are a big deal for me and the ensuite bathrooms here exceeded my expectations.
The owner is also very helpful and accomodating...I had to make some changes to my reservation because a friend decided to join me afew days before the trip. He figured out a way to make it work even though my friend ended up staying for 3 instead of 2 nights.
Whenever I go back to Florence, this will be it for me - I will absolutely be going back to this location.

A localização é perfeita. O quarto é pequeno mas prático, clean e confortável. O único agravante são os lances de escada: embora seja terceito andar equivale ao sexto.. com muitas malas não é mole não... O dono muito simpático e pode confiar nas dicas de restaurante dele. É oferecido um vouchercafé , capuccino e croissant, deliciosos num Café super bacana. Ficaria novamente mas levaria menos bagagem.
