“Central location friendly host nice room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We were made to feel very welcome and it was a pleasure to stay here. Eliseo was a completely charming host - most helpful both on the phone and in person. Warm
Croissants in the room for breakfast. Strongly recommend and would definitely stay again.

You know a guest house is great when you feel sad to leave...From the reception, the jokes about shoes, the beautiful room, the wonderful breakfast to the final goodbye our stay has been excellent. Elisio went out of his way to make us feel welcome and we know we'll be back here on our next visit to Firenze.

Staying here for just one night, Giusio, the hotel host, suggested a brief tour of Firenze - perfectly fitted for our few hours in the city.

The hotel is conveniently located just a 10 min walk from Santa Maria Novella, making it easy to reach most of the attractions and shopping areas in matter of minutes walking.

Our room was extremely big, with a shower and toilet built in to a closet, kind of... Worked really well, though.

This place is perfect for the budget traveller, with demand for something extra.

I stayed there for 4 nights and really like this guest house. I like the combination of the colors of the wall, bedsheet and curtain, as well as the paintings with very Florence style. The location of the hostel is quite good too, 10 minute's walk to the train station and easy to access the main attractions. The staff is super helpful, who gave us very detailed introduction of the city after preparing the comprehensive information package. The room is very clean and the cooking facility is another plus. The breakfast is made with passion and care. The only thing I don't like is the shower facility, which is bit small though the bath room is quite spacious. Good news I heard that the owner will replace those shower facility with the new and better ones. In short, will definitely stay there again during my next visit to Florence.

We had a big and quiet room and it was very tastefully furnished. It was very convenient as the location is about 5 minutes away from the train station and located near all the attractions. The host, Eliseo was very helpful and friendly and he has helped us to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Breakfast and free wifi in the room were a bonus. Truly enjoyed our stay at Ridolfi and will definitely stay there again if we visit Florence again!

The rooms are spacious and colorful, with a romantic touch of a state bed. Everything is new and clean, free wi-fi available.
The staff was very kind and helpful. We had our own bundle of keys (building, elevator, the B&B and the room).
Breakfast was brought as a room service. There were several warm sweet rolls with hot or cold drinks.
There was a table with four chairs in the room to slowly enjoy the breakfast in the privacy of one's room.
I would suggest Ridolfi for romantic weekends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A welcome from who has transformed this roomy and comfortable apartment into a bed & breakfast. I have been a traveller for many years and, although everyone of us is different, some fundamental aspects are universal: the price/quality relation, the availability and the discretion of the management and staff, the attention to cleanliness. Moreover the location of the structure in respect of the historical centre, the most important trade fairs (fashion - the Fortezza da Basso for example) and of the main railway station S. M. Novella is guaranteed. We can offer you all of this in truly spacious and comfortable rooms situated in an unusually silent street; every day, we work with the aim of improving the quality and the comfort for you, our future visitors. Upon your arrival, for those interested, we are happy to offer you a coffee or a welcoming aperitif ... more   less
