“Made our stay in Florence special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

We were two friends travelling throughout Italy in April and arranged to stay with Mariangela via a travel agent but you can book directly. On the first day we had a delightful breakfast and then Mariangela took us to the market to buy the ingredients for our cooking session. She is a wonderful host and foodie so the trip to the market was a fabulous exposure to the local culture. The cooking session was great fun with lots of laughter followed by a very relaxing lunch accompanied with lovely local wine and fascinating conversation about wine regions, food and everything Italian. Mariangela is a delight and her well-appointed, cosy B&B is the perfect place to stay in Florence, being a stone's throw from Piazza San Croce. Mariangela prepared lunch for us on our second day that would rate as some of the best food we experienced during our month in Italy. If you stay in Florence make it even more special by staying here and do the cooking class with Mariangela. It was a highlight for us!

We had a lovely few days with Mariangela. Her B&B is a cosy home from home and we would love to visit again some day. The location is brilliant - close enough to all the famous sites and yet far enough away from the crowds. Breakfast is great (just as the website says) and any help with things to do is readily available but not forced upon you if you already have a plan. Definitely one we'd recommend to friends and family.

I picked this B&B largely based on reviews from this site. It's located just a block from the Santa Croce basilica, in a neighborhood that is not touristy at all. It's about a 20 minute walk to the train station, and even less than that to most spots in the old part of the city.

Mariangela is a great hostess. She helped us with recommendations for places to go and restaurant reservations.

We stayed in the La Squilla room, which has a unique design (attic room with bath down a flight of stairs). The whole place was very clean and comfortable, a great value.

Room Tip: If you pick the La Squilla room, be aware that there are several skylights, but no windows.

I enjoyed staying in the colourful La Squilla attic room and it was great to be in such a central location. The owner was very helpful throughout but I didn't like being asked to settle my bill in cash rather than credit card. It meant having to run around trying to transfer money from overseas during a bank holiday weekend.

Room Tip: The attic room was lovely

The owner, Mariangela, the atmosphere and the delicious breakfasts (with lots of strong coffee) made our stay in Florence to something special. We felt almost at home in our comfortable room with a small private balcony. The location is perfect and you learn a lot from Mariangela and the other guests at breakfast.

My sister and I stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast in May. We loved every minute. It is a great location-you can walk everywhere from here. So many restaurants and shops within just steps of your room.
Mariangela (the owner) offers cooking classes and we loved them. In the morning, you accompany her to the local market, pick out your fresh ingredients and walk back. Mariangela then teaches you how to prepare Tuscany style anything that you choose. You then get to eat what you prepare. It was fun and enlightening. We came away with some great recipes and memories of the classes. I highly recommend doing this during your stay.
You are served breakfast every morning which is spectacular. The meats, cheeses, jams, yogurt, and coffee are absolutely wonderful.
Mariangela is a great resource for anything you plan to do during your visit. She is so wonderful and kind and wants you to have a memorable time and will do anything she can to make sure that happens.
We hope to return as soon as possible, but next time we will include my 10 year old daughter, as Mariangela said it would be great to have her in the cooking class too and she could make pizza or any number of things a child would like!

Le Stanze di Sanza Croce offers a wonderful base from which to explore Florence. The location is superb, just 50 steps from Santa Croce and 5 minutes walk ftom the Piazza della Signoria. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully designed. Over a nice breakfast you can talk to the hospitable owner, Mariangela, who will be happy to give you valuable 'inside' information and advice on where to go and where to eat.
