“Average B&B, rooms are all different standards.”
Reviewed 1 June 2011

Cheap, extremely clean room, in a good location walking distance to station and all popular sites in Florence. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Ask for Room 1 or room 2, which are quite large and airy. We were given an unnumbered room between the other two rooms and it was very small with a tiny bathroom. Not what we expected from the reviews when we booked. Be careful in summer as we were there in May and it was already very hot and there is no Aircondtioning. You have to leave windows open to get a breeze and there were lots of mosquitoes and it was very noisy from surrounding buildings. There is no Wifi in rooms but you can get it in the hallway. Would not stay again.

Room Tip: only stay in room 1 and 2

Reviewed 16 October 2008

These rooms were large and airy and very clean. Each room has a TV, hot water pot, closet and clean decor by Ikea.
Some rooms have bathrooms and some don't so request a room with a bathroom. If they don't have one available there is a bathroom in the hall that is very clean and we always had hot water.
Be warned that there is no lift so you will have to haul your bags up two flights of stairs.
The location is very central. Just a 10 minute walk from the train station down Via Nazionale. It is a 5 minute walk to the Mercado Centrale and the best street vendors in the city near by. It is also a 10-15 minute walk from the Duomo.
Even though it is called a bed and breakfast there is no breakfast. Just a hot water pot, nescafe, tea bags and packaged cakes and snacks. There is also a small shared refrigerator in the hall.
Make sure that you let them know your arrival time so that someone will be there to let you in.
These were some of the largest rooms that we stayed in while in Italy at a fraction of the price of some hotels that we looked at.
They do only take cash as payment so be prepared for this.

  • Liked — Large, clean rooms at a good price. Central location.
  • Disliked — Did not request a room with a bathroom. Some street noise.
