My daughter and I got back home yesterday from a lovely three nights at the Al Canto and I feel compelled to write my first review on Tripadvisor. We usually holiday in 4 or 5 star properties so this was a bit of a gamble for us. Al Canto is a bit out of the city centre, but easily reachable on the 14 or 14A bus to Via Della Ripa, with the 5 minute walk down the Via Aretina you will be there between 20 - 30 minutes depending on where you get on the bus, and there are several buses an hour.
Linda and son Nic were lovely, nothing was too much trouble. At breakfast Linda would be giving everyone a history lesson of sites to see and also if anyone mentioned visiting anywhere or a restaurant they would like to eat in, she would pop off to either try and make a reservation or pull off information from the computer. We really enjoyed sitting in the kitchen having breakfast each morning with the other guests where everyone would chat about their day (you would not get this in any big hotel where everyone keeps to themselves). The en-suite rooms were all very spacious, yes the furniture was 'rustic', but it fitted the design and feel of the house. There was also free wifi which was a great bonus. We would definitely come back to Al Canto if we were coming back to Florence. A great tip for Florence is that they have a free wifi in the city centre which you could regularly pick up but could be a bit hit and miss depending on location. We used this to get onto tripadvisor to look at restaurant reviews.
Hello to Peter and Antoinetta, we really enjoyed meeting you and hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Many thanks Linda, Nic and other son Ryan who we met on the last night, we didn't want to come home!
