“No fuss comfort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2011

The entrance to this B&B was a bit dodgy.. a very old lift (those that requires opening a door and a gate) takes you to the small 3-room apartment. Yet the room is pleasant and the bathroom although quite tiny is very clean and modern. There is also a spacious kitchenette and common room - where water, drinks and snacks are supplied free..
I only met the owner - a lady (who runs it with her son) once and she's pleasant and friendly, and only speaks Italian.
Breakfast is served in bar across the apartment. Like most Italian breakfast - a croissant and coffee.
What made me chose this B&B in the first place is its central location - it is just minutes away from the Duomo. However, the first night, there was lots of noise down the street.
That aside, overall, my friend and I are quite pleased with this small B&B.

Why this incredible flat isn't further up the list of accommodation options in the city of Florence is truly unusual. Really - it was a delight living here with my son and 2 older parents. Our flat was located centrally with every amenity imaginable right outside our door. Shopping was a breeze with excellent shops across the street, and a plethora of boutiques an easy stroll away. Picking up groceries = a cinch with a walk to the nearby Accademia Gallery with a mini-mart beside its entrance. And my son was entertained by the markets, carousels of the piazza - and mom and dad were easily able to retire back "home" when the pace got to hectic.

We were warmly greeted and patiently helped through by Lorenzo, and his beautiful Mama provided us with excellent help and service. They were truly gracious hosts, and we cannot stress more how kind they were in ensuring we were comfortable in this well-furnished flat.

Kitchen was modern, clean and with a basic set of "all-sorts." Bathroom was very modern with a good shower. Mom and dad slept in the "master bedroom" and my ´son and i took the "living room" with sofa-bed. There was plenty of room for 3-adults and a little one and even with Mom's walker and a bunch of luggage, we still had plenty of space to manouver and enough to spread out my son's toys. Also well-appreciated... high-speed wireless internet. Just ask Lorenzo for your codes to keep up with the office back home.

A few things to keep in mind: if you are noise-sensitive, think again before booking. High-activity levels are literally right in your face (tourists, traffic, road-service, etc...), and the Duomo will wake your sleepy-head outta bed at a shocking hour if you can't fight through the rings of the cathedral bells. Also, as the builidng is older, be aware of water running through the pipes and echoing through the flat. Traveling always with ear-plugs worked for me, but not so the 1st night for mom and dad.

I warmly recommend you make this flat your home in Florence. Enjoy your experience!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Magnifico Messere in Florence. We stayed for 4 days in November 2008. The apartment is in a marvellous location, right next to the Duomo and within easy walking distance of the Accademia and the Uffici. Lorenzo and his mother are great hosts and can recommend the best restaurants around the city. Breakfast was perfect at a little café across the road. Our room was spotless with a view of the Duomo. We would not hesitate to recommend this place as a base for exploring Florence.
