“Quaint, attractive, relaxing”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Palagetto. Marta was our host for 4 days She always went the extra mile to help us with bus routes and tickets, restaurant recommendatons and reservations, and more. She was friendly, respectful and caring. The room was spacious and comfortable. We loved the quietness and quaintness of the property. And the breakfast was wonderful. We hope to return someday.

This is an ideal place to stay if you are arriving by car as we did. Just outside the old city but easy walking distance and really peaceful and quiet. In fact it is much nicer being south of the river and we felt like we got more of a taste of the locals Florence than being stuck in the middle of the tourist area.
We were given so many tips and advice that we didn't need our guidebook any more, and it was all great advice - thanks so much for that! We felt like we got extra special treatment as we were on our honeymoon, so that was lovely too!
The breakfast was delicious, and it felt nice to share that with the other few visitors that were there. Nice lounge area to relax in and access to the kettle to make tea any time - which is a big plus for me in a hotel!
Our room felt a little dark which was a shame as its supposed to be the best one! But it had a lovely bed and felt private.
Overall a lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: I think that the rooms on the North side may be lighter (cheaper too).

Dear Sarah
we are delighted that you and your husband have had a very pleasant stay at the Palagetto on the occasion of your honeymoon, and we are happy that you enjoyed our special surprise (a good bottle of Chianti for a romantic toast) .
We are so sorry that you have found the room Gingko, by far the most beautiful of our Guest House, a little too shady, but it was enough to open the shutters of the two large windows (which you have always kept closed) to enter the sun! In any case, we are delighted that your stay was enjoyable, even if you wanted to penalize us with 4 dots out of 5 for your mistake (the one that you have not opened the windows and enjoyed the beautiful Italian sunshine ).
Best wishes from Florence

Nice guesthouse, a bit outside of Florence but certainly walking distance or a short bus ride. The guesthouse has lots of personality, offers charming rooms, and serves a delicious breakfast every morning. The staff is very helpful.

I stayed in a lovely single room. It was exceptionally clean and in my room I had all these little things one could wish for to feel oneself comfortably - kettle, drinking water, reading lamp, dressing gown (toilet and shower situate in a corridor and is shared but thanks to this gown it's not a problem using it even in the night), enough hangers, switches close to bed so you don't have to go out of the bed to turn off the light, bedside space to put your book and mobile, etc. Breakfast was really something to wait for in the mornings with fresh and very good cappuccino and cake slices (things I enjoyed the most). Bed mattress and pillows are comfortable enough, and it's quiet during the night so you can sleep your window open. And there was more - little things which made you feel cared for and important for the hosts - I don't reveal it all so you could have some surprises as I had during my stay.

Room Tip: I did not see the other rooms in this B&B so I can't give much help for your choosing proces...

we put all our efforts to make the rooms more comfortable and cozy. The kettle and selection of teas and infusions is a small plus we provide free of charge to our guests, because you really feel like at home!

I also booked Il Palagetto because of its great reviews and I was not disappointed. Tiziana and Ruggero were great hosts and did everything possible to make my stay a pleasant one. The house is beautifully decorated with personal touches that make it a' home from home'. There is a lovely lounge area where you could sit, relax, read or admire the views of Florence. It is situated in a quiet residential area over the river with plenty of bars and restaurants near by and a 20 minute leisurely walk to the historic centre. It is a lovely relaxing place to stay and I look forward to staying there again on my next trip to Florence.

Booked this B&B based on the positive reviews here in TP and glad we did! We (myself+wife+infant) enjoyed our stay in this lovely and cozy guest house. The owners, Tiziana and Ruggero, are both kind and hospitable in the true sense of the words. Tiziana even offered to pick us up in the train station (well, with an infant, logistics bit challenging). She attends to her guests' needs whenever she could - itinerary, museum reservations, bus tickets, and even our laundry! Rooms look exactly as they are in their website - what you see, what you get (well appointed) Located couple of meters from main street, up and down walk was enjoyable (good for your health too!). Situated on other side of river (out of the touristy area), which was a plus. City center just 5-8 mins by bus or 10-15 min by leisure walk. Many thanks Tiziana and Ruggero! Will stay here again for sure. Best regards , Ernie/Les/baby Una (Philippines)

Situated just outside the bustling city centre, the traditional, clean and pretty guest house offered my partner and I a rustic and authentic Florentine experience.

Hosts Tiziana and Rugero can provide in-depth information - and even book on your behalf - for attractions in central Florence. But we often just enjoyed exploring the nearby parks, beautiful streets, piazzas, hidden bars and authentic (considerably cheaper) restaurants in the area surrounding the B&B.

When we did fancy the city centre, though, we always walked the 10-15 minutes there - certainly no need for bus/ taxi. The Florentine streets are an experience in themselves!

Thoroughly enjoyable stay. Delightful and diverse continental breakfast that catered for my vegetarian partner extremely well. Couldn't ask for more.

Hope to stay again soon.

Dan and Georgia.
