I have mixed feelings about this hotel, I feel as though we had a Goldilocks experience! We had a good first impression, some stained glass works, unusual ornaments, even the room numbering signs were sweet. We booked this hotel - 3 separate rooms for my mum, sister and me. Our rooms weren't together - we were allocated a room on... More

Located in an old villa, this Bed and Breakfast is still family owned. While we were there the owners personally drove guests to the airport as the guests' rental car had broken down. The rooms are quaint. The bathrooms are nicely updated. Everything is easily walkable from this location. The breakfast was served in the outdoor courtyard. Fun.

Simone is a very gracious host and will make you quite comfortable. He had pastries, fresh fruit and coffee/tea available every morning. He was very helpful getting reservations for the museums even when they were sold out on the web. The rooms are located on them third floor (American usage, 2nd floor English), and there is no elevator. The significant... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights there this Sept. for our honeymoon trip. Thanks to Simone, we were surprised by a big Martini and chocolates upon arrival! Everything is great and we feel pretty comfortable here just like home. Actually the 3 B&B we stayed in Italy are great :)

This is a personally run Band B on the third floor of an old house. Simone,the owner, loves Florence and enjoys running this Band B ! He understands the needs of a visitor who is 'doing the sights' and wants clean accommodation at a fair price .On arrival he gave us very helpful local information and made our bookings for... More

I really hope to go bak to Florence and if Simone still has this place, no doubt I'll stay here. I have already recommended it twice to people I've met on the road and I would recommend it to anyone going to Florence.

We chose this B&B as we arrived with a car and it was possible to park outside on the street. It costs 12 EUR per day (you can pay for three days infront), and its only meters away from the inner ring (just beware, they clean roads once per week, and for that night you have to move the car!)....

In general we were pretty disappointed with our stay at the Donatello B&B. First, the basics. The B&B is located on a corner outside the main "circle" that is historic downtown Florence. Our room and bathroom (bathroom is not attached, but it is private) were clean and comfortable. The breakfast consists of coffee that you make yourself and pastries that... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel in Florence, and it was great! Simone was incredibly helpful and friendly, providing us with a map and restaurant recommendations upon our arrival. The room was a nice size, and comfortable.

It feels like home here. The room was spacious and clean. Simone the owner, is a joyful warmhearted Italian guy. He whistled old Soviet anthem to us amusing us with it and that was funny. He was very attentive to us... ... Rent a bike at the train station or in the city center and you'll be just fine (less... More
