It is possible to find the hotel by street numbers, there is only a small sign next to door. The hotel is situated in a calmer area, not far from the historical centre. The old building has two floors: lower floor is for guests and the host family lives on the upper floor. There is a common vestibule with a kitchen, where breakfast is served, and a common terrace. Enrico, the owner of the hotel and the host, was very helpful and kind. He gave us a map, showed us important landmarks, restaurants, ice-creamers, bus routes etc. He let us use all accessories in the kitchen, helped us with car-parking and prepared the breakfast every morning. Everything was clean, very nice and well-furnished. We enjoyed our stay very much. There was really nothing to complain about. Hotel B&B Cimabue 9 is an excellent choice!

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice!

The hotel was amazing! Our host Enrico was so helpful and welcoming, gave us a city map and a wonderful tips on food and sights.

The room was simple and cosy, with high ceilings, air conditioning, high-speed (!) internet connection, very clean and tidy. It had an entrance to a lovely outdoor terrace. Bathroom was big enough and spotless.

We really enjoyed our breakfast with cereals, cookies, delicious coffee and chatting with other guests. The location was perfect for us, 15 min walk from the city center with all the sights, 3 min to the river, with shops and restaurants nearby. It really felt like staying at a friends'.

Great value for money, highly recommended!

Having never stayed at a B and B before but yet wanting to extend our European vacation after coming off a cruise, we thought the B&B circuit would be the way to go that would allow us to do that. What a gem both this BandB and Enrico turned out to be. He was so helpful in coming out to meet us at 11:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, carrying our luggage upstairs, recommending restaurants, securing us a Tuscany Wine Bus Tour, bus transportation, etc. The breakfast portion is in a little cafe downstairs that makes delicious cappuccinos.

The B and B is about a 12 minute walk to the Uffizi, and is located in a REAL residential area with decent priced restaurants. It is about 4 blocks from the river and once you saunter down there, I swear you will fall in love with Florence.....

If you are coming to Florence for any amount of time, do yourself a favor and stay at Cimabue 9. Located just a 5 minute (11 euro) taxi ride from the train station. In a very nice neighborhood. Feels very safe. It is in a great location, not in the heart of the tourist loud areas, yet just a short walk away!
The host, Enrico was more than accommodating. The rooms, linens, and bathroom was absolutely spotless and cleaned daily.He gave us wonderful recommendations for food and sights. If you have a question he has an answer. He lives upstairs so if you every need anything he is very close.
My favorite part is the outdoor terrace. My boyfriend and I would sit outside for hours every night enjoying wine and music. You also get vouchers to a quaint little cafe to redeem for breakfast/lunch. They have actual cash value so it doesn't matter what time you go or what you choose.
If you are looking for a hidden jewel great for couples, families or the solo traveler this is the place. Rates are amazing also. We could not believe the quality for the price. I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things!

I truly enjoyed my stay here in Cimabue 9. First, the location was great...just a 5 min taxi ride from the main station. It is on a quiet street surrounding by several shops including cafes and restaurants. Secondly, our host Enrico was absolutely fabulous! He met us every morning and called a taxi for us whenever we needed it. He gave us great tips and awesome directions around town. He even gave us directions to an outlet center called Barberino Outlet! Its was a beautiful. Thirdly, It was 100% clean and simple. It was just as described on the website but a bit better. Our room had a patio where we could sit and enjoy the view of the city in the privacy of our room.
I would definitely stay here again!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Enrico!!!
(If you go to Florence I recommend you visit a lounge called Moyo...awesome atmosphere and great perks..Buy a drink...get free unlimited buffet style finger foods.) Just thought I'd throw that in there...

I should have written my review last year. But we enjoyed our stay so much that I can remember it clearly. It is family owned with the family living upstairs so they were always around cleaning and helping us out on where to go and where to eat. Enrico was the best!

We got a triple room for 100 EUR, and a double for 70 EUR. In included pictures of the double room where we had our own entrance to the balcony overlooking the street. The rooms are simple with beds, tv and bedside tables and windows. I judge cleanliness by the bathrooms. I hate bathrooms. But their bathrooms were very clean! There were some mosquitoes when we went. I never got bit in the hotel but my husband did a few times. We walked everywhere from the hotel. It was in a very good location. The only time we took our car was to visit Greve in Chianti and to attend the MotoGP race in Mugello. On our last night, we found a place nearby (not La Taverna) that had the best Florentine Steak. I think that was our best meal in Florence. I can't remember the name, but it was small, and had dark wood furnishings inside. There was an older woman professor staying there at the same time as us. And there was a group young girls staying in the other room. So it caters to all ages.

I definitely recommend staying here!
