We stayed here for a couple nights. The location is ideal, it is not far from the train station and the main sites. The room was ok, we had one with a bathroom across the hallway. The bed was not the most comfortable. Staff was very nice and helpful. Be prepared to hike up the steps.

Stayed for two nights in a double room with shared bathroom. Room although clean was very small and the bed was tight for two adults. Also not comfortable to sleep at all! Shared bathroom was clean but I never took a bath there.
Due to size of room felt a bit claustrophobic so opened the windows at night which was a really bad idea coz i got bitten by a million mosquitoes all over my hands, leg, face!! Sadly no one even mentioned to us at the time of checkin to be wary of that.
Fairly close to all the main sights and we didn't have to use a bus to get anywhere. (except for Michelangelo Plaza which is up the hill)
A young girl who checked us in was very friendly and helpful though the next day another lady (maybe the owner) was quite rude and unpleasant.
Overall an ok stay.

I'd really like to keep this a secret, but I feel I owe the owners of Hotel Ferretti a thank you for allowing our school group (18 of us) to stay with them. What a great experience to stay in a true Italian pensione. Personal attention, help with making restaurant reservations, taxi service and more. They couldn't do enough to help us. This was the first time I had a group stay here and would love to return and stay again. Clean, safe, central, friendly at a reasonable cost.

Hotel is in the historic center of Florence and you can go to all the major attractions by walk!!! The owner Banti's Family are very professional and very nice. If we'll return to Florence we know where we will going because all is perfect!!!

Wonderful time! This was the ideal hotel for my seven days in Florence. Not only was it directly across the street from my daughter's apartment during her study abroad program, but it was in a wonderful location for shopping, dining, and gellato (I recommend Lorenzo's), The room was clean and comfortable; breakfast was convenient and tasty; the Banti family friendly and helpful. I am not sure when it will happen that I am in Florence again, but this is certainly where I will stay!

Room Tip: Select a double room with a private bath for the extra space and privacy and add the breakfast!

My sister and I stayed at the Pensione Ferretti In March 2012. The location was perfect, close to everything and walking distance from the Railway Station. The Pensione is family run and they were all very friendly, and helpful giving us some great advice. Our room was clean and included a private bathroom with shower. An excellent budget hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a private bathroom. A continental Breakfast is an extra 5 euros
