“Excellent for a family of four”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We booked two rooms for a Family of four. Each room had its own ensuite and travelling with a teenage daughter made having two bathrooms great. The cost for two rooms, which are brand new, was excellent value. The bathrooms and the bedrooms were perfectly clean and warm. The B&B is just 10 - 15 minutes walk to all the attractions with great places to eat nearby. Thanks Germano and Cristina for your hospitality - we ended staying for 7 days.

Very nice place to stay, The owners are very friendly and helpful. Christine help us book tours and gave us lots of information on place to visit.We had a large room with a nice clean bathroom. A nice warm breakfast was brought to our room each morning with enought food for a mid morning snack. The B&B is only a ten minute walk from the Termini Station..

What a warm and friendly place to stay in Florence.
It's a real guesthouse/B&B - the room was a generous size and bathroom was clean.
The bathroom and bedroom was all in one! Quite different.
A nice 15 min walk from the centre of Florence which we didn't mind.
Delicious fresh breakfast.
Cristina was very helpful with maps and local info.
A couple of flights of stairs so not for those expecting lifts.
Bring earplugs as it's close to a busy road and is a bit noisy.
None the less we highly recommend staying here!

Located slightly out of the way although easily within walking distance of central Florence (also public transport nearby). Room was large, breakfast fantastic. I had no toilet in my room but that was a small inconvenience for the great price. Cristina was very helpful, lending me a public transport map and a guide book during my stay. Close to the main station. Recommended.

My husband and I decided to make a spontaneous stop in Florence while on our honeymoon and arrived at the train station with no hotel reservation. We planned to find a place near the Duomo after walking around a bit, but ended up speaking with the owner of Hotel Cristina at the station and after finding out that the price we was right we took him up on his offer of a ride to the hotel and one night's stay including breakfast. I typically avoid the mass of hotel proprietors and tour guides swarming new arrivals to a city, but he was a very nice guy and not pushy at all.

After a nice air conditioned ride to the hotel we checked in and decided to take a shower and nap before venturing out. The bathroom and bed were huge in comparison to those in most European hotels/pensions and my 6'7 husband was thrilled. Everything was clean and it was in a great location for walking to the central sites. The next morning an amazing breakfast was brought to our room which we throroughly enjoyed before checking out midday.

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Florence.

Germano drove us to his B&B from the train station. It was definetly a good value for the amount we spent. Him and his wife, Cristina, were kind and welcoming. The place itself is about a 15 minute walk to the Duomo. The entire place was very clean! Also, breakfast is included and they bring it right into your room!

My wife and I met Germano at the train station and he gave us a ride to the rooms. He and Cristina were very nice and very helpful. She provided us with a map and showed us how to get to all the interesting places.

The room was much bigger than expected and the bathroom was big by U.S. standards. It had a shower, sink, bidet, and toilet with plenty of space to spare. They keep there rooms extremely clean. In the morning, they bring breakfast to your room on a rolling table. YOu are served a pot of coffee and tea with pastries, rolls, chease, and a boiled egg. It was more than we were expecting considering the rate we were paying.

I find the other review (the one bashing Cristina House) very hard to believe. This is very good place run by very nice people.
