“B&B”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

This was my first time staying at B&B. Liliana and Lucia are two extremely friendly and lovely hosts. Suggest to book your stay a few days before so that gives you enough time to communicate with them. Their reception isn't opened 24 hrs, and they closed at 1pm, so we had a little problem to enter the B&B because I booked the stay too last minute, and we arrived after 1pm. Luckily, they responded to the email very fast. We stayed at Residenza Betta for 2 nights. The room was clean & huge, and the linens were clean. The mattress was a bit too soft & thin only. They have hot water for shower!!!! The location is around 20-25 minutes walk from the Florence Santa Maria Novella Station. Overall, it was a nice stay.

Great choice for solo trip to Florence on a budget. Easy walk to anywhere - I even walked from the train station - and I felt completely safe at all hours walking to and from, and in my room. The room was quite nice, and very clean, and it even had a small balcony that was very nice to sit on. The breakfast was very good, and served at an early enough hour that you could get out and start your day. Betta was incredibly helpful to a first-time visitor to Florence, with great restaurant advice and general information. She also loaned me a converter, as I had forgotten mine - thanks Betta!

I would definitely go back to Residenza Betta!

Really friendly people taking very good care of their guests. Clean rooms on walking distance from Florence centre (15 minutes). Stayed here for 4 nights during the UCI World Road Championships. Loved this place !

Pretty nice room, clean and large. She is pretty available to recommend optimal places for visiting and eating, very precise and kindly. The breakfast was good althought capuccino was not so good because had no taste but they offer different options so I changed it for fruit juice, about the rest, it was pretty nice for us to find a very kind person and service.

Stayed here with our 2 kids. Beds are really basic, maybe even temp beds. Room also very basic. However it was very clean, ladies are very nice and friendly. Breakfast is very basic, did not like that the yoghurt and milk are not kept cold , which gave it an iffy taste. Coffee tasted like instant. All in all if you are looking for clean budget this one is pretty good. Location is easy to get to from the train station and there are plenty restaurants close by. I would recommend this to the budget, safety,cleanliness minded traveller. FYI This is a 6 room guest house with no staff available at night.

Room Tip: Do not get room 6 as it is directly across from the breakfast room

Most of the reviews are true about Betta, she is very energetic and extremely nice. She assisted with booking day trips out of the city and museum tickets in town. She also provided great restaurant recommendations. The room was large and mostly clean; however, one of the days of our 4 night stay our room was not cleaned. The bathroom was a bit odd, with some very loud noises (i believe some sort of sump pump action) and often smelled like..... Breakfast was provided and just out the front door you could find a bus route, but on a return visit I would prefer to stay a bit closer to the "action". Only about a fifteen minute walk, but in the summer heat, that can make a huge difference. Also, on weekends it was hard to find food close to the Residenza.
