“Comfy Bed, Great location, Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon.
The house is very nice. The room has everything you could think of to make your stay comfortable. The location is great, right in the heart of florence but in a quiet location. The owners, Vary and Edo are very friendly and very outgoing. They are also always around to give you advice and make sure everything is good.

The special meal cooked by Vary, one of the owners, was outstanding! Each course was better than the next and they also accomodate vegetarians. I would definitely stay there again, next time I would take the cooking class as I am already trying to reproduce the recipes at home :)

Very charming place. Edo and vary make you feel like you're visiting relatives. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Everything you need for a safe,relaxing and carefree stay. It is located just outside of the city hotspots but it is a very short and interesting walk to just about everywhere in florence. The host Vary and Edo are extremely friendly and knowledgable. The food that Vary cooks will make you want to stay inside and eat all day and nite !!!!!

We stayed at Giglio Bianco last September for 4 nights, it is really a great B&B with wonderful hosts. Vary & Edo on arrival sit you down in the living room where you are given the low down on Florence & provided with maps, ticketing advice & what to see & how to get there. Giglio Bianco is very central but just outside the tourist area, so its quite but very close to the Boboli Gardens just accross the road, 5 mins to the Pitti Palace & 10 mins to the Ponte Vecchio. Edo provided a mobile phone incase we got lost, but we never used it. The room with ensuite was excellent, very clean & well mantained, it was airconditioned & also a bar fridge is provided in the room. Free WIFI is provided with good signal. Filtered cold spring water is provided daily. The special dinner cooked by Vary was superb, 5 star restaurant quality, as were her daily breakfasts with pastrys, toast etc & you can have eggs cooked anyway you wish. They gave us great help in organising travel to the Ferrari factory & museum as well as organising a rental car for us for our next leg to Siena & Tuscany. Highly recommended & good value.

Room Tip: Both rooms are excellent.

We stayed at this place a while back and have always meant to review because it really is an outstanding B&B. We have recommended to friends and family - and recommend their dinner too! The host & hostess are really knowledgeable and on the night that we didn't have the in-house dinner, their eating out recommendation was spot-on.

This was the only B&B we stayed in that the owners lived onsite. They were lovely and very helpful with advise on seeing Florence in the short time we stayed. The room & bathroom were very nice and the quality of the fittings and bed linen very good.
We enjoyed the breakfast and special dinner Vary prepared. She is a wonderful cook and it was a very pleasant evening shared with the other guests. Recommend the accommodation and also the special dinner. Good value.

My wife, son and I were recommended to stay at this place from some of our friends. Easy access by taxi from the Ferrovia de Firenze (the train station). Don't take the bus as the drivers don't understand english, and if you don't know which stop to get off on you will be walking a long way!

As we learned, if you can have a bus get you to Pallazzo Pitti (the Pitti Palace), you are within about 7 minutes walking distance of the B&B.

Our hosts were incredible and we felt like part of their family almost as soon as we arrived. We were brought to the lounge/dining room for an orientation, tips for the locale on how not to get cheated buying leather goods. They also set up a reservation at a local restaurant for us the day we arrived that I would recommend, and recommended a couple of places during our stay.

Bottled chilled water and other drinks are provided in a common area fridge that you can keep in your in-room fridge.

The best part was that Edo and Vary make you feel like family almost as soon as you arrive. Vary is a gourmet chef and she makes breakfast to order each morning accommodating individual's food preferences. We also ordered the gourmet dinner on our last night there and were presented with a nice cozy atmosphere and 4 courses of food that you might expect out of a top-tier 5-star restaurant.

They also have a laundry service - a necessity when you are moving from city to city in Italy and living out of your suitcase. Laundry service value was incredible and the convenience was out of this world.

Our room was nice and cozy, clean and well maintained during our visit. We would highly recommend this B&B on all points, and will stay here again. We also understand that Vary and Edo travel to the US in the wintertime and will be more than happy to extend a visit to our home for them when they arrive - Yeah! It was THAT GOOD!!

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms here are good and kept to the same high standards - after all they're in...

We stayed at this charming B&B for 3 nights in early October and the whole experience was wonderful: great location, comfortable room, delicious breakfast and very helpful hosts, Vary and Edo. We made the right decision to experience one of Chef Vary's 5 course meals and we weren't disappointed. The meal was exquisite from start to finish. We chose to dine there the next night as well and again it was superb! We highly recommend this B&B in Florence for a truly unique experience!
