Cosy House is about a 5-7 minute walk from the train station and about a 10 minute walk to the Duomo. The owner and host is lovely! She is very knowledgable and helped map out how to get to all of the places we wanted to see as well as to recommend local restaurants. Our room was white Shabby-Chic style-... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was fantastic! Quiet, great sized and decorated room with a comfortable bed and pillows. Nice little ensuite. Lovely entrance, courtyard sidewalk and a little garden at the back smelling beautifully of jasmine. Anna looked after us and served a nice little breakfast. As there are only 5 rooms the breakfast choice is... More

Cosy House is a comfortable walk from the central train station and the Duomo area. A good choice if you are ok with this location, it's a bit of a walk to the river and Ponte Vecchio. The area felt safe with a lot of local foot traffic. We stayed in room 5 as a couple but it was able... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, great value for the money. Our room was spacious and clean, good size bathroom, beautiful yard. The owner, Annarosa was very helpful and accommodating, gave us a lot of useful information about beautiful city of Florence: what to see, where to eat, etc. The location is great, within walking distance to major attractions...

Stayed three nights at this B&B at the beginning of november. The location was excellent, at a five minute walk from all the main attractions but at a very quiet location. Rooms were excellent and the service at breakfast a charm. I would definitely book again.

We had a wonderful time at this lovely guest house! The room was clean and quiet with free WiFi and we were looked after by our very helpful host who knew everything about Florence and spoke excellent English which is quite rare in Italy!

I first stayed at the Franchi Residence last year and absolutely adored it. Clean, comfortable and relaxed. Simone manages the place with warmth, thoughtfulness and assurance. I'm staying there now and will be back again. Very central location, btw.

This was by far our best experience in accommodations in Italy. It was like our own little apartment. We did not get a room with a kitchen but they are available. Spacious and clean, with good wifi, which is hard to find in Italy. Simona was extremely helpful and treated us like family. Although a couple of blocks away from... More

Simona gave us maps and advices on touring, and she is always willing to answer any questions. She also helped to make a dinner reservation and to take care of our luggages. The room is traditional and well-decorated, and the small garden is also very lovely. Although it is outside the old town area, it is quite close. There are... More

A beautiful place, once a monastery, now our most pleasant stay during our European tour. Excellent location, quiet, immaculate, and your host is extremely pleasant. A very relaxing place, flowers in the windows, a nice patio in the back. From the noisy streets of Florence, you enter into secure, peaceful quiet surroundings. Great price! Highly recommended
