This is a good place to stay not just the location but also the host Roberto is a very nice guy. He is willing to help every his guest and make sure all of us have a happy time during the stay. For a single female tourist like me, safety is the 1st priority and Roberto will lock the apartment door at 1am to make sure all guests can take a good rest and won't be bothered by others late back, and location is also my concern, staying at Olga's House the key attractions such as Piazza della Signoria,Palazzo Vecchio,Uffizi Gallery and the Ano River side are all with in 1 minute walking distance. And if you are here for shopping, all brands like Chanel, Ferragamo, Prada, Gucci you can think of are only 1-2 blocks away!!

The location for Firenze/Florence is perfect. A 15 minute walk from the train platforms, and situated right on the corner of the most desireable Piazza to be at in all of Florence. The hotel and rooms were very clean. I thought Roberto was really nice and helpful. The breakfast was traditionally Italian at a close by quality cafe, which works great for someone on the go. I enjoyed staying here so much that I decided to stay an extra day just to take it easy in Florence. Then I stayed there again when I came back through. Yea, there are some stairs, but if you don't have a walking impediment or a ridiculous amount of luggage, I would not worry about it. If you are looking for ease of handicap access, Europe in general should not really top the list of vacation spots. Europe has a lot of old historical structures that can't be feasibly modified, and uneven, occasionally steep, time-worn cobblestone streets are everywhere. Video cameras are everywhere in various large cities in Europe...get used to it. I mention these last points cause I don't want to see someone disuaded due to what might appear odd to some, but within the context of traveling in Italy is totally normal. Use common sense, if you want stay out late or party in your room there are hotels that cater to that. If you want a premium location, a non-premium price, clean room, and a personable knowledgeable innkeeper in Florence Olga's is it.

My vacation in the Olga's House in Florence was very very beautiful!!! The B&B is exactly in the historical centre of the city, all of the most important monuments are close, the room was clean and nice, with very comfortable bed (- that was important for me, cause all the day I was out in the city), and at night I could sleep very well! The owner, Roberto was a helpful and nice person, he gave me lot of informations of Florence what I asked. I will return to the city again in this year , and I'm sure that I'll go to Olga's House, what I can recommend to everyone !!!! :) Thx 4 the wonderful vacation!!! :)

Room Tip: Rooms are clean, new, nice and very comfortable!

My husband and I stayed at Olga's for 4 nights in June but would never return. Apart from the 80 or so steep stairs to the room, we felt very uncomfortable with Roberto. He watches everyone's movements on his tv and we know he went into our room on a number of occasions while we were out. When we first arrived he was friendly but once we paid for the room, we were not able to contact him at all to let him know that his toilet and shower (which were very old) were not working properly.He was also not around when we checked out which once again meant we could not show him the faults with the room. Our daughter also stayed in another one of his rooms which was a help for me as I could use her shower. She also was very unhappy with Roberto.
This was all bad enough but the worst was still to come when I got an email from Roberto saying that he was taking money off our credit card to pay for repairs to his bathroom - repairs that needed doing before we arrived and he still has not told us exactly what repairs we are paying for. We ABSOLUTELY did NOTHING to cause any damage whatsoever and I am about to contact my credit card company to see what I can do about this unfair situation.
Overall we found our room not at all as the pictures show although adequate, also a mention of the MANY stairs would be helpful in deciding whether to book or not as they were a nightmare. However, my main complaint is with Roberto who we found to be a very dishonest and unpleasant man and he is the last person I would EVER recommend leaving credit card details with.
There is a lot of accommodation available in Florence and I sincerely suggest you do not consider this one. Roberto ruined our memories of Florence which is such a lovely city to visit.

olga house is just situated in the middle of town. only drawback- no lift. The acco is on second floor and its 80 steps to fly. There is no staff to help you with your luggage. so u will have to manage on ur own.
vehicles are not allowed in this area so possible that you might have to drag your luggage from nearby distance to this location.
breakfast coupons were given along with the room. it allows one croissant and one coffee in nearby restaurant which is usually at bar counters , if u want to sit and have ur breakfast then u will have to pay extra. Break fast was really disappointing.
room was nice and clean. U might try some other bed and breakfast as this area has numerous bed and break fast places
