“Great B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2008

The Tourist House was just what we ordered. My husband and I stayed there recently and had a good time. Rooms were clean and neat. The ensuite bathroom was the largest we had seen in all of Europe and was also clean. Breakfast left a little to be desired, Fruit Punch isn't juice...hmm. But all in all, a good place to stay. They called a taxi for us the night before, to get to the airport, and it was on time at 5:30am. The front desk girls were great, good suggestions for dinner. Well done.

My sister and I stayed at this hotel on a recommendation from fellow travellers. For the price we paid I thought it was good value for Florence, 75 euros for the room and that included breakfast. Breakfast was basic but ok. It was close to the railway station, the sita bus station and the local orange buses. Also with in easy walking distance to all the sights Florence has to offer. It was in a quite location however there were a variety of bars and restaurants at the doorstep. We could also access wireless Internet. It was clean and the beds comfortable. I would recommend this hotel

Our stay was "sufficient". It was a clean large room with breakfast included. Nothing fancy but adequate. It is not in the greatest location in Florence since the piazza area is quite run down. But it is a convenient walk to the train station if you plan on taking day trips from Florence and also a convenient location to get around florence.
I would go back but don't expect anything fancy.
