“Nice place for a getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Loved it, was such a pretty place, and handy to everything, specially for the traveller who doesn't know where things are, because everything is near you.
Very welcoming people made our stage enjoyable.

We felt like two Caterina's, royalty that is. My daughter and I were spoiled with this lovely stay. Robes, slippers, two big bottles of water daily (one fizzy/one not). We could leave the door open to the balcony (Spanish Room) and hear the bells of the Duomo (steps away) or close it and have peace from all the traffic, of PEOPLE. It was a great escape during the day, if we needed a change of clothes or bathroom. The only slight disappointment, wi-fi connection often fails because of the thick building walls, and no REAL breakfast. Hence, the four star rating. Italy is about awesome coffee and pastries when it comes to breakfast. You can make your own coffee and have a wrapped muffin that was provided. Having said that, I would stay here again. It is truly bella!

Le Stanze di Caterina is the perfect accommodation in Florence. It is literally a 2 minute walk from The Duomo and has many eateries around. We were very impressed by the decor of the rooms-extremely artistic with a story to tell. Despite being around for more than 5 years, the interior looks very well maintained and the level of cleanliness was very high. Bedroom slippers and 2 big bottles of water everyday were provided, which are nice touches. The sheets were also very soft and definitely high thread count!

The owner of the b n b actually owns a restaurant downstairs, which serves outstanding food as well. All in all, a perfect place if you are ever looking for accommodation in Florence!

Alessandra has done an AMAZING job in creating a luxurious, boutique spot literally right in front of the Duomo. She is incredibly helpful, and returning home to her place after a day of walking the streets of Firenze makes you feel like you're really living well. We asked for her recommendation, and she put us in the Spanish room. We loved it. On top of that, she worked hard to help me plan out my days ahead of time via email, and even helped make some of my reservations to the must-see spots (and didn't charge extra). Part of the value of a great B&B is a host/hostess willing to help you with your planning and itinerary, and this was no exception.

A few other items -- we arrived by train, and we had no trouble walking to and from the train station, which is a nice bonus (and something we were intentional about), and you walk right past the Duomo on the way, which only steeps your excitement. We walked everywhere in Florence, and this was a great central spot. On our trip through Italy and France, this was one B&B we splurged just a little, and it was really wonderful. Thanks, Alessandra!

Room Tip: The Spanish room was her recommendation -- romantic and special. Ask for it!

My husband and I stayed in four hotels during our trip to Paris and Italy in September 2012. I was only impressed with Alessandra's Hotel. It was beautiful, elegant and charming. I feel incredibly lucky that we stumbled upon this little gem. Further, Alessandra went above and beyond to ensure our stay was enjoyable. It couldn't have been a more perfect experience. I am not one to write reviews, but I had to make sure I wrote one for this occasion.

My wife and I first stayed a Le Stanze in 2010 and loved it. When we left we knew that we would stay here again on our next trip to Firenze and we did. This two room B&B can't be beat - we have stayed in both rooms and they are beautifully decorated, comfortable and quiet - and the bathrooms are wonderful! And the location is also fabulous - walk out of Le Stanze, look right and you are staring at the Duomo. Alessandra, the hostess and part-owner is extremely nice and helpful - and her English is far better than our Italian. She and her family also own Il Caminetto restaurant which is in the same building as Le Stanze. We ate there several times this trip and highly recommend it - both the ambiance and the food are great. On our next trip to Firenze we will definitely stay here once again.

Simply briliant, we stayed in the Spanish room which was lovely. The location could not be better with a fantastic Restraunt below the rooms. Alesandra was very helpfull and made the booking proces simple and stress free. We would not hesitate to stay here again and will definately recomend it anyone.

Room Tip: The spanish room was brilliant
