La Signoria di Firenze B&B
Ranked #36 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is a basic B&B lodging, nice and clean and full of Florentine flavor, but with few frills for travelers seeking luxurious extras. My wife and I love this kind of place and avoid the chain or tourist treatment locations, so La Signoria was a delight to find. But that is our taste.

The hosts were exceptionally friendly, helpful and, well, hospitable in the literal sense.

Rooms were a joy, breakfasts a delight - and - above all, the location is sensational: half a block from the Piazza Signoria, a few yards further to the Uffizzi, slightly further to the Ponte Vecchio, a short walk to the Duomo and Accademia and sandwiched between two avenues filled with shops, a vendors' marketplace, restaurants, caffeterias, pizza and gelaterias.

One word of warning: the rooms are accessed by a few short flights of stairs. Elderly or impaired visitors will be helped by the hosts, but should know about this beforehand.

Both Luciano and Luciana provided me the hospitality and customer service that I have never received in Italia. The double bed room is simple, yet nice and very comforting. I literally felt as if I was at home. The breakfast is typical Italian, brioche, orange juice, milk, coffee, yogurt, and fruit...and of course cappuccino, macchiato, and expresso! I stayed there for two nights and I did not want to leave and return to Vicenza!

I've already told several people that they have to stay here when they visit Firenze...and by the way I am a very picky woman and I am very particular when it comes to hotel rooms.

Grazie mille Luciana and Luciano!

Arrivederci

Although we only stayed one night at La Signoria it was a great choice. The location is very central close to the Ponte Vecchio about 5 minute walk.
The rooms were very clean and modern. The service provided by hosts was great.
We were able to see a lot of sights of Florence in our short stay.
Wouldn't hesitate in staying here again when I return to Florence.

From the moment we were greeted by host Luciana to our final last (8th) day, we fell in love with this B&B. Along with her brother Luciano, they create a warm, inviting ambiance. Location is perfect and uncannily quiet, given its proximity to Piazza Signoria (probably the most populated square in Florence) and Mercato Nuovo. You immediately feel as if you're home. Very comfortable rooms with 15-16 foot ceilings. They pleasantly serve breakfast and offer up to 10 different ways to prepare coffee. Very helpful with directions and Italian phrases. Since we've returned home, I feel homesick and can't wait to return. We plan to revisit Florence and will only stay with Luciana and Luciano. In fact, I've named my new Italian leather gloves Luciana (right glove) and Luciano (left glove)! Staying at La Signoria di Firenze definitely enhanced our enjoyment of Florence. Ciao!

Wonderful place to stay. Luciano and his sister Luciana were both wonderful hosts. They gave us great recommendations and the location is perfect. As others have said just steps away from everything.
We travelled with another couple. Both our rooms were impeccably furnished and well appointed, spotlessly clean and had modern bathrooms.
Unfortunately, our friends room, had the very loud disco every night. Although Luciana assured them after the first night that this would not occur again, it did. This really put a damper on their enjoyment of Florence. If they would have realized it was going to occur again, they would have asked to be moved to a new room or if none available, maybe would have moved to a another hotel. When you are on a trip of a lifetime, can't really justify missing some of it because of sleeplessness!
They stayed in room Ghirlandaio so avoid that room if you are sensitive to noise.
Our room, right next door, was completely quiet.
Would highly recommend this B and B, but avoiding that one room!
Sleep quality and Rooms Ratings indicate an average for our 2 rooms due to the noise issue.

We stayed at this B&B for 4 nights. Luciano and Luciana were the perfect hosts. The location was great, just steps away from everything. The room was great, very comfortable with all the amenities. I would definitely stay there again if visiting Florence!

Been here before and came back.
Great location, great hosts who are so warm and welcoming.Great rooms and bathroom.
Highly recommended.Good price too.
One slight issue but not the owners fault...a very loud disco somewhere close on Saturday night, starts at 1.00am ish and went on till 5.00am. So, take ear plugs and don't leave the window open.
We will return!

Room Tip: All very good.
