It was due to the reviews of other Trip Advisor users that I decided to book a room at Fiorenza B&B for our 3 night visit to Florence, and this B&B absolutely deserves the great reviews that it receives.
Soon after we placed our booking we were contacted by the delightful owner Elena to plan our arrival and give us directions on how to reach the house. Her directions were excellent and it was only a quick 10 minute taxi ride from the train station. When we arrived Elena’s greeting was warm and she was well prepared with maps, transportation information, and restaurant suggestions.
Our room overlooked the beautiful traditional Italian garden and thanks to some unseasonably warm weather we were able to open the windows and enjoy the sound of birds singing. The room was warm, comfortable, clean and traditionally decorated. The bathroom was clean and fresh with a great shower, plenty of hot water and clean towels.
Elena makes an effort to provide a delicious breakfast at a time convenient to her guests. Breakfast is served in the sunshine filled, traditionally decorated, kitchen located on the same floor as the B&B bedrooms. We chose 9:00 am for breakfast and we were greeted with fresh fruit salad and fresh hot latte coffee’s each morning. Also available every day were juice, breads, yogurts, baked items and jam. Elena presented us each morning with a different cooked item. One morning we had a slice of delicious apple pie baked by her mother, another morning we had an outstanding zucchini quiche on puff pastry, and on our third morning we had the best scrambled eggs I have ever eaten!!! What is your scrambled egg secret Elena?
On occasion when Elena is away from the B&B her delightful mother takes on the role of hostess and does an outstanding job of settling guests into their rooms and answering any questions they might have.
Fiorenza B&B is located about a 30 minute walk from the historic city centre. My husband and I avid walkers while on holiday so the location was excellent. For people less inclined to walk (Downhill into the city centre and uphill to get back) there is an easily accessible bus that can get you there in 10 minutes or so. There are several walking routes into the city from this B&B but Elena marked a map clearly so that we were able to find and enjoy the most scenic route to the tourist area.
I hope to have the pleasure of returning to Florence again and when I do I will absolutely be booking a room at Fiorenza B&B. Thank you Elena and family for a terrific stay!!
