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

I would definitely stay here again if I were visiting Florence. It was a great value in terms of everything put together. It wasn't the fanciest of places inside, but it had everything that my husband and I required to be comfortable. The things that stood out to us that put this place from 3 to 4 stars in my... More

We had a great experience at Il Grillo. The rooms were nice, the location was terrific and breakfast was a nice touch as well. We decided to stay at Il Grillo after reading raving reviews, almost every single one mentioning how helpful and great the owner, Lorenzo, was. None of those reviews were embellished in any way. Lorenzo was every... More

Excellent place, reasonable price and lovely hosts! With regards to the breakfast, (It probably is me) I prefer a mixture of sweet and savory instead of everything sweet. On the whole, we loved this place.

If you are going to Italy to see the sites and aren't looking for a 5 star hotel, this is a great place stay. The rates are extremely reasonable and includes a continental breakfast, Lorenzo is very welcoming and there to assist you in any way he can. It is a quick ride by bus to many of the sites.
