“feel like home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

we stayed one night in locanda dei poeti, the location is pretty good 5 minute walk from main station and 5 minute walk to academia and 5 minute walk to domo , without any need to use any public transport you can easily visit all must see places in Florance,the staff are very kind and helpfull, we even didnt pay in advance, but they respect to our request and kept a room for us,we had a key with no limit of time to enter or departure, we didnt pay for a bar breackfast but plenty amount of biscuits, jam, nutella , tea and coffee was ready to use in the clean homelike common kitchen,
i like this cosy place, the building is old just like other buildings in florance but the room quiet clean! i will stay here again in this wonderful place!

We only stayed one night at this great little hotel while visiting Florence. Martina was a gracious hostess; she mapped out local sites and restaurants in the area. We had a spacious room on the second floor facing the street. There is a common kitchen stocked with teas and coffee as well as a sitting room area.

We highly recommend Locanda dei Poeti. Thank you Martina for a great stay in Florence!

Clean hotel in a good location near the Galleria dell'Accademia, the Mercato Centrale and the train and bus stations. There was a little kitchen on our floor with biscuits and tea and coffee, which was a nice touch. Irene and Martina were very helpful and efficient over the email but we unfortunately didn't see them very often in reception.

I can't say enough good things about this Inn. Great location, very helpful staff, beautiful decor-we stayed in the Dante room, great price. Clean and perfectly CHARMING! Would not hesitate to stay again. Highest recommendation!

We stayed here in early June 2014 in the Mediterranean room. It was chosen due to good reviews on Tripadvisor, and reasonable prices compared to similarly located accomodation. My wife and I found the room to be very well appointed, with everything we needed, including a hair dryer. The rooms were spotless on arrival, and were also cleaned every day.
Martina went out of her way to look after us, and make sure we had everything we need. It is a small B &B, and the reception is open only a few hours each day, but this wasn't an issue. I emailed and questions and they were promptly answered within an hour or so. There is also a phone available, to contact Martina if necessary.
There is also a common use area, which had a computer with Internet access and a free printer, which was also appreciated.
The location is fantastic, just a few minutes to the main train station, and the main attractions. There are plenty of restaurants close by, a supermarket and there are 2 Laundries close by.
I will stay here again if I am ever back in Florence

Great place to stay for the Moto GP as well as exploring Florence. Locanda is within walking distance of pretty much everything in Florence. The railway station is 5 to 10 minute walk. The train to Borgo san Lorenzo is about one hour and then a 10 minute taxi to Mugello. However, it is difficult to find transport back to BsL. After the race, we walked back and enjoyed the scenery. The walk took about one hour. So, not so bad. Just take plenty of water if the weather is warm.

The name means Inn of Poetry & this B&B is lyrical. The "couplet" who run the inn is an ode to friendliness. They were very accommodating and helpful. I could write an epic about the appointed decor and cleanliness. The rooms are very modern. My 17 year old daughter's eyes shine when she talks about her visit here (and her phone was turned off during the trip). There are food vouchers for breakfast which could be exchanged at two nearby restaurants. We felt very safe. There were different keys for the main door, your floor and your room. The famous Piazza Del Mercato Centrale was within walking distance (less than 5 minutes). There were fun tourist shops and events like paper making, taste testing etc. in the market. The food was great in the area. We walked to the Ponte Vecchio and Accademia. In short, our stay was a rhythmic ballad. I HIGHLY recommend Locanda dei Poeti.

Room Tip: We had a private bathroom right outside the door. There was a kitchenette also. Everything you'...
