A small intimate hotel. The room was very comfortable and roomy and the breakfast was great. One must be aware that since it is small, you must check in before 6:00 pm or pay extra. The staff was friendly and helpful and we were able to leave our luggage on the last day until time for the train. It was noisy on the street on the weekend, but the location is perfect for seeing the city.

While it's not really a hotel, the room was quite expansive and nice. There's no wireless (which would be the one thing they should add), but they do have an ethernet connection if you bring your laptop. The staff was friendly, but manage to their check in time window. The place is 5-10 minutes from the Duomo/San Lorenzo market and the Ponte Vecchio. The Osteria del Caffe Italiano around the corner is fabulous for a pricey meal and the Gabbi bar is a great after dinner drinks place. Overall, it was a good deal for a great location and nice big room (very un European).

The hotel was great, not much of a hotel, there is no reception or 24h service, but the room was great and unique. It was clean with nice bathroom. The breakfast was very good and the staff very friendly. Close to everything, the historical area, museums, restaurants, bars, all in walking distance. Great value for money , would recommend it. Only one minus, stairs to go to the first floor and then an elevator, and you should carry a batch of keys with you, not very convenient when you have a baby and a stroller as we did, but we managed ok.

Staying at this hotel was like having our own apartment in Florence. The lobby is not always open, so you have your own set of keys to the building, the hotel and your room. It is very secure and you may come and go as you please. the location is great - central to sites, restaurants and shopping and it is only a short walk to the south side of the river if you're looking to get away from the tourists for a while. The rooms are beautiful, with the perfect balance of old Italian charm and contemporary styling. The only negative was the bathroom fixtures. The water pressure in the shower was low but bare able and our hair dryer was broken. We never bothered the staff with these minor issues but if we had I'm sure they would have had a solution. Overall, we loved this hotel and had a very pleasant stay.

We found this hotel very clean and comfortable. The hotel receptionist spoke excellent English and recommended many good places to eat and see. For a bed and breakfast it had everything you could need and very close to the historic area. Very good value for money and in a lovely old Florentine house. There were stairs to the first floor therefore no good for wheelchair users but that was no problem at all for us. The bathroom was spotless and overall the place was well above expectations.

Room Tip: Try for a room at the back of the house not looking on to the street.
