Amazingly helpful and friendly staff. They are happy to provide recommendations for the area, including where to go, where to eat and how to get around. The room was comfortable and perfectly suited to myself, a solo traveler.

B&B Il Grillo Firenze provided an ideal accommodation for our travel budget. When we arrived we were greeted by one of the proprietors, Lorenzo, whose warm welcome included a helpful orientation for navigating the city. Service throughout our stay could not have been more considerate or attentive. Our family of four stayed comfortably in a simple, clean and bright room... More

Everything about our stay here was perfect. The communication was good, it was easy to reach from the train station by bus (we even walked once). When we got there we met Lorenzo, who was very hospitable and gave us a lot of information once we were settled in. We were also able to buy bus tickets from him which... More

Well, what can you say when all you think is wow! We received an email from Lorenzo and Lara the day after we booked to welcome us for our upcoming trip. The communication all the way has been great, we were emailing up until we arrived outside the rooms. The journey from the train station all the way to the... More

I stayed here with my 2 children. We all loved it. It was very convenient - I didn't use the car once we arrived. The place was very clean, and the hosts are very nice and helpful. I will definitely stay here every time I return to Florence.

The location is very good. The bus stops are almost in front of the entrance. It takes a few minutes to travel to the historic center of Florence by bus. The breakfast is great. The staff was excellent. They did everything to have a pleasant stay. Absolutely recommended!

This is a good compromise between being close to the airport and near the historical center. There is a bus stop within a few hundred feet for easy and inexpensive transportation. The owner can sell you a bus pass Parking is on the street and you can buy the parking pass from the owner. The room was very large and... More

I would say our stay in Il Grillo was very good, we only slept there one night, but we could see how nice Lorenzo and his staff are. The apartment is very nice in terms of architecture, but in terms of interior design is not that good... with a little more could be much better. The location is ok, I... More

This B&B is located in a very nice residential neighborhood and is close to a bus stop that is very convenient to get to the city center. Breakfast was excellent. The owner Lorenzo is very welcoming and gracious. He even arranged for a taxi to the train station on the day we were leaving. The balcony area is awesome and... More
