“The Perfect Location”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Thank you, Luciano and Luciana, for the wonderful hospitality at your B&B. We were there for 4 days, during the first week of June. The location was central to ALL of the sites in Firenze. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were very enjoyable, sitting with the other guests and hearing about their adventures. Everyone always had big smiles on their faces. I felt like I was more than a guest. I felt like family! Thanks, again, for everything! Next time in Firenze, we will return to B&B LA SIGNORIA DI FIRENZE.

La Signoria di Firenze is a trendy B&B just steps from the Piazza della Signoria. My wife and I stayed here for two nights in April and could not have hoped for a better experience. Luciana and Luciano are both very accomodating hosts; they take great pride in their B&B and it shows in the tastefully decorated and very clean rooms.

When I first contacted Luciano via email, I told him what days we would be there and what we would like to see. He arranged an intinerary for us and reserved tickets for the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia. This was a huge bonus because it was Culture Week in Florence and all of the museums and gallerys were free of charge, which meant long lines that we were able to skip with the reservation.

While it can be a bit noisy at times, I really don't think you could ask for a better location. Everything that we wanted to see was within walking distance. Most attractions and high-end shops are within 1-10 minutes on foot. Strolling up and down the Via dei Calzaioli between the Piazza della Signoria to the Piazza del Duomo was almost magical. We even walked up to the Piazza Michaelangelo on two separate occasions for breath-taking views of the city, based on Luciano's recommendation. I highly recommend everyone do this!

One negative; I didn't sleep especially well due to the firm beds. However, I found all mattresses in Europe to be too firm for my liking. Also, the owners do not live at the B&B. Either Lucanio or Luciana were at the B&B for the better part of the day, but I could imagine there being some inconvienence if you needed something and they were not around. This was not a problem for us.

All in all, Florence was a spectacular stop on our first European vacation and La Signoria di Firenze was a gem of a B&B,

Room Tip: Ask Luciano to make gallery reservations for you.

Located just steps away from the central piazza of Florence, the location of this accommodation can’t be beat! Our hosts were very friendly and gave us some excellent recommendations. Best of all, the Masaccio room which we booked has to be the largest in Florence! It actually has a foyer with a daybed, huge bathroom, and enormous bedroom with huge bed, which would be perfect for a family travelling with all the accouterments of small children, or for a couple traveling with an adult child. The décor was dated, but clean and simple is fine by me! The wifi was spotty and the breakfast isn’t overwhelming, but for the price it was better than I expected, and the cappuccino was perfect!

My only complaint was loud construction-vehicle-like banging noises, perhaps coming from the piazza, in the early morning, and the house music bass coming from some club until 2am Saturday morning. However, as I’m pretty sure you could hear both of these from almost any place in central Florence, at least the Signoria provided earplugs; if you want quiet you should stay outside the city!

Room Tip: Masaccio room is HUGE!

The B&B La Signoria di Firenze is a great place to stay, and not because it´s almost in the Piazza della Signoria and 2 minutes walking from Galleria degli Uffizi, but because the owner, Luciana, is a really nice host and was so kind with me and my sister =)

The hotel is very clean, cozy and you feel like you are living in Firenze, because they give you the keys of the main door and the entrance is the door of an apartment :)

Chanel is close and others amazing shops is few (really few!) minutes walking..

Just loved it!!!

Wonderful experience! This relaxing and beautiful B&B is just off the Piazza della Signoria in the heart of Florence! The owner was a gracious host who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We are a family of four adults and we had a 2 room suite that was spacious and felt luxurious. We will recommend this to family and friends and hope to have the opportunity to return in the future.

I and my partner stayed at La Signoria back on our holiday through Europe back in April through to June 2011. The host was wonderfully helpful (Particually good advice about resuarants) and the location is highy central and excellently placed. You could also hit the pigs nose with a toss from the bedroom window. The rooms are beautifully appointed BTW. Almost lavish actually.

Hosts Luciano & Luciano are very friendly and nice =) Rooms are large and well equipped. Hotel is located in very-very historical center, so you should understand, what it means: parking problem, crowd and noisy streets in mornings and evenings. Breakfast is good.

130euro per night is probably ok price for such location and large rooms with high ceiling.

recommended to stay if you're not grudge =)
