“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed July 25, 2006

Lovely place to stay. On a quiet street, but within walking distance of everything. Hostess very charming and helpful. She is originally from the US, but is now married to a man form Italy. She has lots of information about Florence and its sites.

Breakfast was a warm sweet croissant, along with some yogurt, hard rolls, cream cheese, jams, tea, coffee, juice, etc. Place was clean (maid came every day) and nicely decorated. Has a shower (no tub--if that is important to you). The room has a safe.

I would stay there again, and wish I were there right now. Such a lovely space.

My husband and I stayed at Casa di Barbano from April 28-May 1. We would highly recommend staying at this B&B. The owner is an American woman who is always happy to help you with tours information, restaurants and any other advice you need regarding Florence.

The decor of the B&B is a very florentine style and is beautiful. I was also surprised that we had daily cleaning service which is quite unusual when staying in a B&B. It really helps to come home after a long day wandering the streets of Florence to a nice clean room.

The location is great as well. it's not in the middle of all the hussle and bussle of the city but walking distance to all the major museums. It's a very convenient location since it's close to the train station and really walking distance to everything you would want to see in Florence. We would definitely stay here again.

My sister and I were told about this B&B from some friends who have stayed there. We stayed at Casa di Barbano for two nights. The couple that run the hotel are very helpful and have lots of great tips for dining and things to do. The hotel is located on a quiet street close to the train station and close to everything. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this B&B. There are only 3 rooms, and if you are unable to reserve one, they might be able to refer you to another place to stay, as they are part owners of some other properties.

We stayed at Casa di Barbano two times and found it to be a comfortable, enjoyable oasis in a city swarming with overpriced, not-too-friendly hotels.

The B&B is run by a friendly American woman who is more than happy to guide you to your favorite destinations. The rooms are comfortable, well appointed, and quiet.

It is very convenient to the train station, which makes it easy to get to from Rome, Pisa, Bologna or anywhere the train goes. It is walking distance to all the main attractions, especially the Accademia. Great local gelato around the corner.

We will definitely visit again!
