“Unique!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

It's a unique Bed & Breakfast, you feel like at home, you get an accessing code that you recieve before your arrival.
The owner is there just in the morning for breakfast, making great cappucinos and in case you want to he also gives you all the information that you need about Florence, very professional and polite person.

We stayed here only for a night and wish it was longer. We arrived at the hotel in the evening (reception is not 24 hours), which we advised at the time of booking. Hotel emailed us instructions and passcode to enter. It's a modern and clean establishment. The room was quite big, with a ceiling fan and AC. The ensuite was quite small but clean and toiletries were provided. Our rate included breakfast, but we had to leave earlier than breakfast serving time. The management waived the city tax, as a kind gesture. We wouldn't hesitate to book this hotel again!!

Great, Friendly staff. Felt very comfortable. Rooms were cleaned everyday and were who ever did the cleaning did it thoroughly. They cleaned under the bed even!
Rooms are small but adequate.
Just make sure you check your email for the code to get in, as staff are not there most of the time. Easy to find though. Close to everything. Double glazed windows helped reduce the sound of traffic alot but still not soundproof, you can hear people exit and enter.
Breakfast was fine, just an average coffee.
Overall i loved this place and would stay again and recommend it.

I was there during the Pitti and I spent just 69,00 euros, I think there is no way to find a better place for a better price and for better location, this B&B is just 5 minutes walking from the Fortezza da Basso and 5 minutes from the main train station. I will be back for sure.

We stayed in this clean, modern B&B for 2 nights and were extremely impressed by the friendly service from Matteo, the owner, particularly in assisting with restaurant recommendations and helping us to avoid the city's congestion charge. The furnishing of the room was quite basic but very comfortable and the location is very convenient - only 10 minutes' walk from the Duomo.
Unbelievable!!!

Clean room with an adequate breakfast. The room was small. The B&B is located about 700 meters from the train station away from old town. The immediate neighbourhood had few amenities. I would consider staying here again but after looking elsewhere.
