B&B Casa Leopardi
Ranked #244 of 655 Florence B&B and Inns

Clean, beautifully decorated property in a great location in Florence. The owners were exceedingly warm and helpful, assisting with parking, buying museum tickets, dinner reservations, etc.

Stayed: September 2011, traveled as a couple

Casa Leopardi was a gem of a discovery for a perfect accommodation in the heart of Florence. It is conveniently located right by one of the main square's of Santa Croce and is a 10 minute walk from the Duomo, central shopping streets and beautiful restaurants. You cannot fault Casa Leopard for cleanliness and function; there are three differently styled rooms which you can choose from according to decor and ambience. The hostess was wonderfully warm and accommodating, friendly and happy to help with anything you might require and provided advice on what's around and what's going on locally. Included in the cost are breakfast voucher's for the cafe below the hotel which provide ample selection though what your voucher provides is limited. Overall, my stay at Casa Leopard was a wonderful experience and definitely value for money.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few days and we absolutely loved it. Karin, who runs Casa Leopardi, was so welcoming and offered us refreshments when we arrived. She also offered to make reservations for restaurants, galleries and attractions, and booked us tickets to the Uffizzi gallery, which was great because we didn't have to queue for 2 hours which many people do! The room was spotless and elegantly decorated with modern amenities such as A.C and a flat screen tv. The bathroom was also very well decorated and had a large walk-in shower. We loved it and will definitely stay here on our next trip to Florence! Without a doubt we would recommend it to anyone.

Where to start? Our stay at casa leopardi was nothing less than perfect. From first meeting karin to the moment we left she was extremely pleasant, helpful and always welcoming. She would offer to make reservations for museums, restaurants and give us general information about things to do in Florence. Our room was fantastic. It was spotless, fresh and brilliantly decorated. Our bed was quite firm but typical of Italian hotels and B&B's. Though after a day of sightseeing you will be glad of a firm mattress. Our room was cleaned daily and clothes we had left lying around were neatly folded and left by our bedside. The bathroom is, again, spotless. The big shower head is a very nice finish, to go along with a handheld option as well. There is also a hairdryer and selection of soaps and showergels. The A.C. unit is very efficient and has a great night setting for those who cannot sleep with too much noise. As with many historical buildings in Florence there is no elevator but this posed no problem for us and should not put anyone off staying here, unless wheelchairs accessibility is required. There is also a safety deposit box in the rooms built into the walls which is great to leave any valuables in. In future we look no further for a place to stay, and neither should anyone who is looking for a friendly, clean and safe place to stay. We would highly recommend casa leopardi!

Aside from the walk up the stairs, the B&B was flawless. The room was very clean and had some cool art and antiques, there was also a very efficient AC. The Bathroom was great, It had a large walk in shower with one of those big rain shower heads. The owner made us feel so welcome, we had a few blips to the start of the holiday, so it was great to see such friendly face. We were asked if we would like help in making dinner reservations and if we needed help in arranging excursions or musuem visits. The B&B itself is very central, within 5 - 10 mins walk from the major piazzas. Also only about 20 mins walk from the train station. All in all, I would reccomend this place to everyone. A great find.

Room Tip: Always check the B&B has your reservation

If it's available, save your time researching and book here now. Seriously, do not wait.

This is a new b&b and thus it hasn't ranked high yet, but I have no doubt in a year or two it will be a very different story. The price is great, and i would take this over a four star hotel any day.

Since it's new, everything is immaculate and decorated beautifully. The owner, karina, is amazingly sweet and helpful. She greeted us with chocolates and bottled waters, and helped us get a reservation for dinner.  

A couple notes...

1. The address on the website should actually be 11 black and not 11 red. (red is commercial), so we had trouble at first finding the place. But it was just 50 meters north.
2. Yes there are stairs, consider it like a third floor walkup. 
3. The bed may be a bit too firm for people coming from the US but I actually liked it.
4. The wifi is too weak from our room.

Despite those small concerns, we loved it there.  There was a gorgeous bathroom, a great AC unit!!! (our first in Italy), LCD tv, and it's quiet for being in such a prime location. the photos on her website are honest representations. Everything was perfectly clean.

We actually were moved here from another b&b in town that overbooked our third night. Had we known what we were missing out on we would have moved here earlier in a heartbeat. 

It's a shock that in this busy season she actually had availability for our last minute stay, and the only explanation is that the word hasn't gotten out yet on this amazing place. I travel a lot, and normally dont post reviews to avoid being redundant, but since this place is new and such a find, I wanted to say something.
