“Great place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Sandra and Paolo are wonderful people and are very accomodating. We stayed 3 nights and arrived kind of late our first night but Paolo gave us a good overview of where to go and waht to see and how to get around on the bus lines to and from the city center from the B&B.
They even called the local pizzaria (Which was very good) to make sure we could still get in for a bite to eat.
They have a beautiful garden area and we woke up to church bells at 7:30 each morning. There is a supermarket close by and on weekdays an open air market pops up on their street. Great Gelato nearby but there are few other dining options outside of the pizzaria nearby.
Thanks for a great stay!

We spent an excellent week in their home - elegant and pleasant with a small, beautiful garden situated in quiet and cozy neighborhood, not far from "centro storico". Perfect cleanliness, perfect bathroom. Paolo's advices very useful and Sandra's coffee and cappuccino excellent. Very close to the best "gelato" in Florence.
Thanks again for your kindness and warm welcome.

I went in this b&b one week ago. The room is very nice but the house is in front off the station and every morning in the street there's the market so you can't parking near the house. Breakfast is only after 9 am, if you stay in florence for work or for study and you wake up before 9am you can eat breakfast in a bar -_-' and there isn't sale for this!!!
In the end..the house and the room is nice, is near the station and it isn't so far to the center of florence but the owner is not very helpful.

Gentile Alessandra di Roma,
(ti rispondo in italiano visto che sei italiana)
Mi dispiace se ti sono sembrata non molto disponibile
ma credo che ci sia stato un fraintendimento.
Ti vorrei far notare che nella vostra richiesta di prenotazione
per la sola notte del 15 Aprile ( ti prego di rileggere l' e-mail
del tuo compagno di viaggio Alessio del 22 Marzo)
avete specificato che sareste ripartiti alle ore 7.30 e che non desideravate la colazione
(e avete quindi usufruito di una tariffa agevolata e adeguata alla vostra richiesta).
Comunque il nostro orario delle colazioni e' decisamente flessibile,
ci adattiamo volentieri alle richieste dei nostri clienti, quando possibile,
e nel caso si voglia farla prima delle 8,00 usiamo mettere un vassoio
con tutto l'occorrente per farla direttamente in camera.
Se aveste avanzato tale richiesta sarebbe stato per noi facile e gradito esaudirla.
Vorrei inoltre precisare che e' sempre possibile parcheggiare davanti al nostro B&B
(esclusa la notte della pulizia della strada).
Scusami se puntualizzo, ma sono pronta ad accettare
qualsiasi critica purchè costruttiva perche' sicuramente
si può sempre migliorare.

Cordialmente.
Sandra

Sandra & Paolo are an amazing and loving couple. I and my boyfriend really enjoy our stay. They really make everything easier for us traveling in Florence. They gave us a map and explained the main attractions, good restaurants, bus lines and the best Gelato in town. Sandra & Paolo are very kind and attentative to your travel needs. One day we need to leave very early in the morning to Tuscany, Sandra prepared breakfast the day before and keep it in our room for us to eat before the day trip. They also let us to keep our luggage at B&B till the afternoon before taking our train to Rome. Sandra makes very good coffee & I asked for a 2nd one :) We wish we have stayed with them longer or have the same fabulous B&B in Rome. We will definitely go back to Sandra B&B if we get a chance to visit Florence again.

Room Tip: Definitely go for the Red room with the private bathroom inside!!!!

Dear Sylvia and Jonathan,
thank you for your nice words.
It's a pleasure for us to help our guests
in their holiday. So we are happy,for example, to prepare
a tray with the breakfast to keep in the bedroom
for the tourists waking up very early for tours planned
in the city or around (Pisa,Lucca, Siena, etc.)
Hoping to meet you again, we send you our best regards
Sandra and Paolo

We stayed here for 3 nights in early October and and had a lovely time. Sandra and Paolo are warm friendly helpful people. Paolo has good local knowledge of Florence,and was very helpful when we arrived,giving us a map of the city and pointing out the bus stops and routes,good restaurants and the best and easiest way to get tickets to the museums and attractions. The rooms are very clean and comfortable,with a good breakfast. Local market outside most days where you can get fresh fruit. I recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Sandra and Paolo.

We just got back from almost two weeks in Italy and stayed here for two days while in Florence. It is walking distance to the city center. The breakfast is very nice on the back covered porch and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We were very happy and the owners do a great job

I recommend this place to anyone visiting flornence, 10/10 on cleanliness, friendly owners, ammenities, breakfast and location. We will definately go back there one day to see sandra and paolo again, they are the best.
