Mauro is a fantastic host in Florence! Communication was easy & responsive along with excellent recommendations in the city. Easy to get to but on a busy street. Parking is underground just a few doors down from the apt. Tight parking with a steep, slippery, curved ramp but doable. Ample space for the car once in and a lifesaver to have it so close to the apt. The apt. is up a flight of stairs which Mauro helped us with our bags. The apt. is very clean & comfortably sized. Hot shower was available and the bed was very comfortable. Quiet stay for the city!!! The AC worked fantastic during our August heat wave stay. About 20-30 min easy walk directly to Florence's center, the Duomo. Highly recommend Osteria dell'Enoteca for dinner, upscale dining in a casual atmosphere. They're known for their perfect Bistecca alla Fiorentina, more than enough on it's own as dinner with choice of sides! There are bars along your walk for a breakfast cornetto & café. A gift of Cantuccine cookies and help with our bags to the car as we checked-out. I cannot recommend Mauro's rooms enough!!!…
Firstly#do not be mistaken-this is not Terazza su Boboli,which is ten meters away from Terazzino. This is a lovely hotel located 20minute walk from the old part of Florence. The owner is very kind and helpful,he introduced us to some nice genuine Italian restaurants,which are not touristy. The room is huge,with own bathroom,which is clean. It has everything you need-hairdryer,shampoos,shower gels,glasses for water. The bed was comfortable. There is tv in the room and also air conditioning. We will definitely stay again here next time we visit Florence.
Location: A+ There is one bus stop across the street and another in Piazza della Calza for buses going to Firenze Santa Maria Novella, Piazzale Michelangelo and Piazza del Duomo. Perfect as well if you fancy walking (took me around 15min goint to Piazza del Duomo). Price, service and amenities (i.e. Airconditioning): B+ to A Value for money. Bledi (the person in charge) is very accomodating. He was very helpful and hospitable. Our room was cleaned everyday. There are vendo machines for coffee, water and chips near the entrance. We stayed here from June 25 to 28, and it was very warm in Florence (we came from Rome which i think was warmer) and we were very happy that the AC was functioning well!
If you like to stay in Florence center but in a quiet place - this hotel is the best choice! Impeccably clean, spacious and nicely decorated room, big bathroom, small terrace to share a drink with other guests! Five minutes walk to Piazza Pitti, Ponte Vecchio and Galleria Uffizi! Great restaurants nearby to taste the real cuisine of Tuscany! But first of all - amazing hospitality of Bledi - the Owner! Always ready to help with directions and advice! One of the places you would like to return!!! Greatest Thanks!!! Ciao Bledi! Cari saluti!!! A presto!!!
We visited this hotel last week and spend there three nights. It is located at the pitti neighbourhood, very very close to the entrance of the boboli gardens. Even though it is a bit far from the centre (about 20 mins walk from the Duomo) the neighbourhood is very nice, quiet and quite close to the "spirito santo" square. The room was very clean as it was freshened every day; the towels where changed every day as well. The bed was large and comfy and the bathroom was small but clean and relatively comfortable. The host is a very cool guy that did everything he could in order to help us. He certainly made us feel at home. I would absolutely recommend this place and definitely visit it again.
