The rooms at BBH are very nice and comfy. The owner helped me by providing a fan and cooler, since it's was so hot. There's barely any noise since the street isn't so busy. For the price and location (a 5 min walk from Firenze Santa Maria Novella station), there couldn't be a better place. There's not breakfast included, but there are plenty of places nearby. I would definitely go back!

We loved the stay. The room is clean, comfortable, the street was very silent to sleep. 5 minutes walking to the train station (sta novella) and 10 minutes to the Duomo. We arrived 10 p.m. and Silvia was very nice, showing us the main points, places to eat and the firenze pass. The good stay at the B&B helped the stay at Firenze be excellent. The only bad thing was the small space to take a shower (at the Green Room).

I booked this B&B based on the reviews it got. It was very easy arranging everything by email; however, you did need to arrange an appointment time for when to meet with her at the B&B. So, if you are delayed or are not on a specific schedule, this could be hard (of course, I didn't have a cell phone either). Note that despite being a B&B, there is no breakfast included.

The room itself was lovely, clean and modern. I was also very happy with them because in the end, she was very accommodating - I had to change my schedule fairly last minute as my friend was coming to visit me in Florence. She put me in a larger room for the same price! Location wise, this is more at the edge of what would be considered central location but it was an easy walk to all the sights.

Silvia has created a classy 4-room guesthouse in a convenient section of Florence. You can walk to all attractions, although it's not in the more pricey old city. My room and attached bath was spotlessly clean, and was decorated with taste - in an understated fashion. Silvia was there waiting for me when I arrived and when my computer didn't "read" the wireless internet connection properly (the fault of my computer, not her system), she stayed with me until we together got it arranged. She gave me a map and a wonderful tip for a day trip to Lucca, which I enjoyed thoroughly. The BBH is a good value place to stay in Florence.

We stayed for 3 nights and it was a pleasant thing that you always go back to a place that feel welcoming. The place has only 4 rooms, and they are divided according to colors each room is themed. Briiliant idea! The location is central and you practically in easy walking distance to everywhere. A short walk and you're already in the oltrarno where all the nice and less touristy trattorias are. Silvia has done a GREAT job and she is such a great host, a pleasant and warm person just to be with. Silvia, I hope I didn't surprise you too much with my italian.
All in all, I can't express good enough how great my stay was. Thanks Silvia!
