Franz House
Ranked #355 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 9, 2008

We were approached my Mr Franz at the railway station - that was good as we did not have a room booked prior to our arrival. 10 minutes walk to railway station and relatively short walks to the tourist "hot spots". We enjoyed our stay (two adults, one 14 year old). Triple room that was clean and spacious, and in this price bracket we felt a better than average (own) bathroom by European standards. 2nd floor - with a lift. We found Mr Franz and his wife to be friendly and helpful. Breakfast was perfectly adequate. Good and free wireless broadband. On a busy intersection, but we were really not bothered by the noise and actually found the bustle outside made fascinating viewing (this may not be to everyone's taste). We would stay again with Mr Franz if we returned to Florence.

Mr Franz hijacked us at the station and took us to his B and B.Said there was a bathroom to ourselves-not strictly true" However for a 2 night stay was fine and we had free internet use at the front foyer. Breakfast barely adequate, room clean and spacious with a slight view of the Arno at an angle.
Owner and wife hospitable and kind to us.
Street noise kept us awake- still 75 euro was economical and for convenience it was worth it. Bacus restaurant nearby is cheap and excellent.

DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!! Myself and 3 friends booked and paid a deposit to stay here. However, when we arrived we were told they were full and we had no room. It was Easter and we were left without a place to stay. The owner said his friend's hotel had rooms but this was on the other side of Florence and not where we booked to be. The owner of Franz House was rude, boardering on aggressive. THIS IS CLEARLY A SCAM TO KEEP HIS HOTEL FULL AND GIVE THE OTHER GUESTS TO HIS MATES!

This is a good hotel/B&B with an excellent location. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is good. At 80-90 Euros a night, it's a great deal. It's on a busy street, so if you are a light sleeper, you can try asking for a room that does not face the street.

The only problem that I have with this place was that the owner had his computer by the entrance and as screen saver and desktop he had pictures of naked women. Also, he kept fighting with his wife and, since I speak Italian, I could understand everything. It was very private stuff and it made me a bit uncomfortable.

But still, you'll probably spend most of the time sightseeing, so this might not matter to you.
