This is a really cute boutique hotel! It's right next to the flea market and very close to the major site seeing places, restaurants, and shopping. Some of the reviews mentioned the problem with noise and it's true but it didn't bother us at all. The rooms are not big but it had everything we needed. We really liked the...

Such an amazing hotel in a super location. Small and quirky, the decor has to be seen to be believed. Five bedrooms gives it the feeling of living in a house, with your own key for the front door. My daughter and I had bedroom number five to the side of the building. No noise from the market outside and...

A small boutique hotel set in the heart of Florence - Location is perfect for sight seeing and Christmas shopping - so close to all the shops! There are some noises at night but minimal - this has to be expected given the perfect location. The staff are extremely helpful and the room is gorgeous, can't fault my stay!

The folks running this place are very friendly and helpful. Small B&B located on a square that has a market. It can get a bit noisy but if you close the windows you'll hardly hear it. Location is nearby all the great spots that are just a few blocks away.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
