“Sensational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at B&B Le Contessa and could not have been more delighted. Hristina - the girl on reception - was absolutely fantastic. From the moment we arrived she made us feel at home. The B&B itself is just gorgeous...a wonderful surprise in the middle of busy Florence. The room was spacious and light, the bathroom great and all spotless. Hristina gave us wonderful tips for restaurants and places to visit. She also recommended a day trip for us up into the hills overlooking Florence and booked us a table at a restaurant with amazing views and fabulous food.
We cannot recommend B&B B Le Contesse highly enough. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy.
Also thanks to the wonderful taxi driver who went out of his way to return my purse to the B & B that I had left in his cab!

I was enormously impressed with B&B Le Contesse Florence. Great boutique B&B, nested in amongst the old narrow streets in Florence. Staff was friendly and relaxed whilst being on hand to help with anything you might need. Rooms are very nice and roomy.

We enjoyed our stay in the beautiful B&B LeContesse so much
that we'd really like to recommend this!

The whole B&B is beautiful, very clean and lovingly arranged.
The rooms are high, bright and pretty calm even when they
front the street! The breakfast is very italian and nice.

Le Contesse is located right in the historic part of the town and
you can get to the Santa Maria del Fiore in about ten minutes!
(Only problem is that your not allowed to park in the historical
district during daytime, but we tried it at night and it worked!)

Hristina is such a friendly and caring person who will help you
whenever she can and she makes a fine italian coffee when
your friend is getting lost in the streets of Florence while trying
to bring the car to Le Contesse!

Best accomodation in years!

We had such a great stay at B&B Le Contesse. The location is perfect, only a five minute walk from the Duomo and the place was absolutely beautiful. The owners were so friendly, they made us fresh croissants and coffee in the morning and helped us find our way around Florence.

Clean and nice with good and friendly hosts, close to everything and about one hour to Pisa by train if you want to do a daytrip there. There were a lot of trains going back too. Nothing to complain about.
