“Wonderful location with lovely hosts !”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We arrived into Florence and checked in to a lovely room complete with lavender on the bed ! Our host asked us if we needed any tickets to any museums and he arranged all of our reservations. The location was steps from the Duomo and very quiet at night.
We totally enjoyed the stay.

The room, bathroom and decorations are fantastic! The location is very good too! The staff are professional and would respond you for your every request. The only small dislikes is they are not friendly enough, maybe dealing with too many guests make them tired. The breakfast is nice and full of diversity.

Everything was really cool, very nice and helping staff, beatiful interior, good breakfast, free wi-fi, sleepable beds and conviniently located in a calm center just 5 minutes walk from the Old Square. My special word to the French red wine they serve. Try it coz it's really good! Highly recommended to everyone!

My mother and I stayed here for 2 days in April 2012 and fell in love with it. In fact, we tried to stay an additional day and the rooms were all booked. No surprise there. It is a 2 minute walk from the Duomo and close to many other of Florences sites. It is an old house converted into an inn. Our room was smallish, but average for the area and clean. We were impressed with how hi-tech it was with wi-fi, a PC, and DVD player in each room. Breakfast is included and consists of bread, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, coffee/tea and freshly made cappuccinos, which we indulged in. There is also a sauna and hot tub! The owner is friendly and helpful. I recommend this place to anyone travelling to Florence.

Tourist House Ghiberti is a great place to stay while visiting Florence. The rooms are spacious, very clean (spotless actually) and bright. My washroom was a good size. It had both a bath and a shower. All rooms have free wireless and also a computer for your use. The owners were very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was nice and there is also a lovely outdoor patio area (which is great if you are a smoker or just want to relax and read a book). The building was very secure as well. Only minutes from San Lorenzo market and the Duomo, you are truly in the heart of the city. The price was also reasonable. I stayed here for six nights and would have loved to stayed longer! If I'm ever lucky enough to visit Florence again, this would be my first choice for accommodations:)

The B & B exceed my expectation of a B & B. It raise my standard of what to expect for a B & B. The room is big and bedsheets are clean. It even come with a pc and a dvd player. The road leading to the B & B is not too dark and it is near Duomo. Safe place to stay.

We spent 3 nights at this place, and originally picked it due to its' location. It is just one street north of the Duomo, so it is quite close to many of the major sights around Florence. The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, and the breakfast is delicious. Can't recommend this place enough!
