We probably read all the reviews for this B&B, and thought we knew exactly what we would get: a tiny room, a tiny bathroom, a great location (it is located in an old building, so...). We were really surprised to find a decent size room (a really comfortable king sized bed, coffee table, 2 chairs, a small refrigerator, TV, air... More

Three minutes from the train station and less than fifteen minutes from all the historic museums. Comfortable, clean and functional. Nice continental breakfast is included in a cafe a block away. No elevator though, makes dragging you 20kg suitcase up two flights an inconvenience.

me and my husband was on honeymoon when we stayed at this hotel....and we were surprised for what they have in our room....a well arranged honeymoon room and a champagne aside from the welcome fruits and drinks....the location is just across the train terminal...we will definitely be back in this same place when we get to Florence.

Clean, but not so spacious as expected. Maybe it's because we are four adults and the quadraple room is supposedly for a family with kids and has only one bathroom. But I should say the stay was overall satisfactory. One minor thing.--- we were provided a basket of fruit....not much to eat ---anyway it was complimentary. Thank you.

Recently stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be, overall, excellent. The B&B is only a few minutes walk (less than 5) from the main train station making it very accessible and handy. It is also only a short walk to all the main sites.... the Duomo is about a 5 minute walk away, with the Ponte Vecchio... More

It was a nice surprise to find a so well cured place, new and clean. In each room coffe maker and fruits are available as welcome. Good and kind assistance from the receptionists. One minute far from the central train station and from the heart of the city.
