Residenza Betta
Ranked #207 of 661 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Great choice for solo trip to Florence on a budget. Easy walk to anywhere - I even walked from the train station - and I felt completely safe at all hours walking to and from, and in my room. The room was quite nice, and very clean, and it even had a small balcony that was very nice to sit on. The breakfast was very good, and served at an early enough hour that you could get out and start your day. Betta was incredibly helpful to a first-time visitor to Florence, with great restaurant advice and general information. She also loaned me a converter, as I had forgotten mine - thanks Betta!

I would definitely go back to Residenza Betta!

Pretty nice room, clean and large. She is pretty available to recommend optimal places for visiting and eating, very precise and kindly. The breakfast was good althought capuccino was not so good because had no taste but they offer different options so I changed it for fruit juice, about the rest, it was pretty nice for us to find a very kind person and service.

Stayed here with our 2 kids. Beds are really basic, maybe even temp beds. Room also very basic. However it was very clean, ladies are very nice and friendly. Breakfast is very basic, did not like that the yoghurt and milk are not kept cold , which gave it an iffy taste. Coffee tasted like instant. All in all if you are looking for clean budget this one is pretty good. Location is easy to get to from the train station and there are plenty restaurants close by. I would recommend this to the budget, safety,cleanliness minded traveller. FYI This is a 6 room guest house with no staff available at night.

Room Tip: Do not get room 6 as it is directly across from the breakfast room

Most of the reviews are true about Betta, she is very energetic and extremely nice. She assisted with booking day trips out of the city and museum tickets in town. She also provided great restaurant recommendations. The room was large and mostly clean; however, one of the days of our 4 night stay our room was not cleaned. The bathroom was a bit odd, with some very loud noises (i believe some sort of sump pump action) and often smelled like..... Breakfast was provided and just out the front door you could find a bus route, but on a return visit I would prefer to stay a bit closer to the "action". Only about a fifteen minute walk, but in the summer heat, that can make a huge difference. Also, on weekends it was hard to find food close to the Residenza.

Makes me feel sad for the rest really!
Betta is a one-woman-whirlwind: cooking, cleaning, hosting, regaling, generally being a force of nature. Everything about the place is top class, even though the price is very low.
We were greeted literally with open arms, a bottle of dessert wine for our honeymoon and the sight of our room, with high ceilings and spotlessly clean bathroom that looked like it had never even been used before.
Betta prepares breakfasts, patiently makes everybody a cappuccino and still finds time to sit and talk about anything we choose while giving invaluable tips on what to do and where to go in this lovely city (tip: definitely do the roof terrace on Rinascente when she tells you to and trust her restaurant recommendations!)
If I am ever in Florence again I wouldn't even think twice about where to stay.

Room Tip: Room 1 is certainly very nice, the only one we saw!
