“Great Stay In Florence- Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

We stayed here in May 2014 for 3 nights and it was perfect. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome, given all the information about places to visit and eat. The B&B is in a safe neighbourhood and a short walk from the train station. The room was spacious, clean and had a decent air condition. In the morning you can sit outside and enjoy the garden view during breakfast, which was a nice relaxing start to our day. Easy to walk and navigate from the B&B to all the attractions. The hosts were nice and friendly. I would highly recommend this place.

We had a wonderful 5 night stay here. The rooms were always extremely clean. We spent a lot of time on the terrace. It was a nice quiet place to start and end our day. We had some passport problems and Sandra and Paulo were very helpful. They helped get our forms printed which took more time than it should have. We appreciated the hour of their time, that it took to solve this problem. We usually walked into Florence, but the bus was very close. Everyone at the B&B was extremely helpful. We will stay here again if we return to Florence, and will definitely recommend this to our friends.

Sandra is a wonderful host. She was most helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations and general advice. The B&B is lovely and convenient - 20 minutes walk to Il Duomo, or 5 minutes to the bus. The room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. High recommended!

Paolo and Sandra make you feel at home from the beginning. Thank you again for your warm hospitality.
Also the recommendations what to see and do in Firenze and Tuscany in general were relly helpful.

The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished. Sandra's coffee is excellent.

The only thing improvable is maybe the breakfast. Some fresh bread or fruits would be perfect.

From the moment we reached Sandra B&B we felt the warm hospitality extended by Sandra & Paolo. The location is quiet and very well connected to all major attractions. Sandra's coffee was simply superb and we looked forward to it every morning :) The room was elegantly decorated and well-furnished; the bathroom very well equipped. We felt so welcome and at home at this lovely B&B; even our little son love the place and enjoyed playing with the tortoises and cats :) Paolo patiently explained to us all worth-visiting places and was ever helpful for any information. Thank you so much Sandra & Paolo for helping us make such wonderful memories. Highly recommend this B&B!

My wife and I spent the last week of June at Sandra´s B&B and we had a very enjoyable experience. First, it is not downtown where the myriads of tourists can be an inconvenience. It is in a quiet neighborhood, yet you can walk or take any of several buses (I used number 4) to the touristic attractions. The place is beautiful, well decorated and despite being a traditional house, it has modern amenities like a very good A/C, TV, minifridge, and a very up to date bathroom. The small terrace where breakfast is served is a beuty, with a lovely garden as your company. Sandra and Paolo are very nice hosts, willing to help guests in any way. Also I should mention that the value/price relationship is very good.
There is a supermerket nearby and every morning there is a colorful street market right in front of the house.
I expect to repeat the experience on our next visit to that wonderful city.

Beautifully furnished room (the red room) with king size bed, quality fixtures and fittings, spacious modern bathroom and plenty of storage. This is a very good spot to stay in Florence - a little away from the main tourist spots but a comfortable walk or a short bus ride on No. 13 or 20 which stop nearby. Sandra and Paolo are wonderful hosts who are extremely helpful and informative. They speak very good English and recommended some excellent local restaurants and some great alternative attractions to the mainstream. Wonderful breakfasts on the rear covered veranda. Their whole accommodation package is great value for money and thoroughly recommended for virtually any type of traveller.

Room Tip: Red or Blue rooms are ideal.
