Great value , in a great location . Very quiet . Best shower in Italy so far , endless flooding hot water . Room at nice even temp, even when freezing out side .
Had two children with us over Christmas and Boxing Day , used adjoining rooms . Worked really well. Kids relaxed , close , but had private space .
Beware no lift, but only a few flights of stairs .
Very clean, staff friendly and helpful.

Casa Rovai is located in the heart of beautiful Florence, you can easily walk everywhere, including to the train station. Very beautiful house and quiet rooms, one of the best breakfasts we had in bella italia (home made cake :o) fast free internet, very friendly and helpful staff ! You are coming to Florence do not look for another place, this is the place to be and stay. Very good value for money. PLUS a beautiful balcony to sit and enjoy your morning coffee

This is a lovely guesthouse but a little difficult to find if going in on foot. We stayed in La passione, which is a stunning room - the frescoes on the walls of the room are wonderful. Unfortunately, being late September the air conditioner controller was removed and being so hot and with so many zanzara we were unable to open the windows to cool the room down without being eaten alive. We were told the next morning that the A/C controller is removed at this time of year but we could use the plug in zanzara repellant in the drawer. A potentially outstanding night marred by inability to sleep due to the heat. We would recommend the controller remain in the rooms and not try to cut costs but ensure customer comfort.
We were referred to an outstanding restaurant - Gastone was a treat.

Dear guest
We regret very much that the stay at Casa Rovai, so enjoyable to many points of view has been ruined by something so trivial.
I'm sorry you did not want to take advantage of the liquid anti-mosquito, completely natural, that we leave in the rooms to help our guests to defend themselves from these pesky insects, even during the day.
With regard to air conditioning i beleive that you are not aware of a municipal ordinance against pollution that forces ALL hotels not to use air conditioning when summer is over.
However, when guests show special needs, we usually make an exception and give them the remote control, assuming the risk of taking a penalty in the case of controls.
In your case, however, no such request came to us.
We hope to welcome you again and make your stay even more enjoyable.

The staff were very helpful and gave good suggestions for restaurants close by and helped set up reservations for us. The location was perfect for visiting the center of Florence. Not a bad walk to several of the sights around. We were able to return to the rooms for breaks and then move on to other activities. The rooms were three flights up, so be prepared for exercise. The breakfast was very nice.

Casa Rovai was an excellent choice for our stay in Florence. Our bedroom was very quiet (all of the bedrooms face away from the street) and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was fine too, with a good shower. Breakfast was a choice of cereals, bread, cheese, fruit etc. Off the sitting room there is an outside balcony with table and chairs. The staff at Casa Rovai, Elisa and Clo, are friendly and helpful. Elisa on reception made bookings for us and willingly answered our many questions! One of the best things about this guest house is the location - it really is just a five minute walk to the Duomo. Casa Rovai wouldn't suit anyone with mobility problems - it's on the second floor of the building and there are 38 stairs to climb from the street - but for us it was ideal, and I would highly recommend it for a friendly 'home from home' stay in Florence.

Room Tip: Our room was the Passione Room, which had frescoes on the wall and ceiling.

We stayed at Casa Rovai for five nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The guest house is spotless and the standard is maintained daily through maid service. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom good. The breakfast is nice with yogurt, bread and the obligatory Italian breakfast cake. Art books in the reception area help you prepare for the galleries and give you a sense of which ones to buy. The guest house is centrally located and a great place from which to explore the marvels of Florence.

Casa Rovai Guest House was very positive experience, Elisa was so helpful and made enquiries and bookings for us, and she has good recommendations, for restaurants, theatre and even hairdressers.
We, felt very safe, and comfortable and a very easy location. Close to everything. Would highly recommend this guest house, for stays in florence.
