“Reasonably Good Value”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

We stayed in Sweet Florence for two nights after we extended our stay in Florence at the last minute.
It was easy to check in, the owners/hosts were welcoming and explained everything really well.

The bed was comfortable and as mentioned in previous reviews the shared bathroom was clean and only shared with one other room. We paid 64 Euro per night (including city tax) and this included breakfast (pastry and a coffee - typical Italian size) at a local bar (100m) down the road.

The B and B is about a ten - fifteen minute walk from Firenze Santa Maria Nouvella Train Station and about a 25-30 minute walk from Ponte Vecchio. To be honest if you want to pay less than 70EURO per night you should probably stay here as Florence is very expensive and there are much worse hotels that will cost you a lot more to stay in closer to town.

Be warned though, the road can be quite noisy, so if you are light sleeper ask for a room within the property - we stayed in the Michelangelo room and it was on the corner facing the main road. We didn't mind as we are quite heavy sleepers, but I am sure a light sleeper would not have enjoyed it.

Thanks Sweet Florence, we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the main road.

we had 2 days in Florence and we spend a lot of time walking to our B&B. in description it say is very close to the train station but it's not !!! In a short trip you want to be as much as close to all the city attractions but this place is far and there is no public transportation to get there you have to walk there from train station after a busy tiring day . we didn't like the breakfast comparing to other B&B's we stayed in Italy.

Dear customer, I'm sorry for your inconvenience, but what you say is not true, (the distance from the central station to us is 800 meters) in our city there are buses that I carried anywhere you want, you could ask if you had difficulty to us and we had helped you.

This is a nice BnB 15 min walk from the main rail station. And it's good value for money. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is self service in the room. An electric kettle is provided with croissant, cookies, coffee, jam and mineral water. So you make your own breakfast. Room is cleaned daily.

Staff is friendly and helpful.

Remember you'll have to share the bathroom with other guests.

All in all, I definitely recommend it. We paid 60 euros double room in January 2013. Great price for an expensive city such as Florence.

We had a little trouble locating the place and it was quite a walk from the station (15-20min) but other that that, we are very pleased with our stay. Our room is big with a working aircon and even an electrical insect repellant for the room, which was really helpful as the mosquitoes in Italy are pretty aggressive. Towels are changed daily and the room was very clean. Breakfast was simple with some biscuits, breads, jams and coffee in your room. There is no kitchen for you to cook, which I was fine with. There are 2 shared bathrooms in the house and they were kept very clean. Overall, it was a good experience staying here!

The hotel itself is a kind of appartment, room is spacious and clean. Located in 15 minutes walking distance from main train station, but in opposite direction to city center. The main disappointment is inaccurate information in description of chosen room: we have paid for the room with individual bathroom, but in our case bath was outside of the room, supposes to be shared with neighbor's room. On our question owners answered that we probably will stay alone, or someone can check in tomorrow. The breakfast is another trick from owners: it's just kettle with 2 bags of and instant coffee plus few biscuits

Dear Customer , I just want to underline the fact that, before expressing your opinion, you should have read the reservation made with Venere.com that envisaged a room with a shared bathroom, as you requested. We are very sorry for your disappointment and we advise you, before making other reservation, to pay attention to what you book.

We had a very nice stay here at Sweet Florence. Owners/Managers were very accomodating, organized and helpful during our stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. beds were comfortable. a/c worked perfectly. Walking distance from SMN train station (1.2 km). Although the bathroom was shared with another room, it wasn't really a concern, since we were only there 8 hrs max/ day. Probably used it once or twice a day. Would recommend this b and b to my family and friends.

Me and my husband stay there for 2 nights. Room are clean, bed comfortable and you only share the bathroom with an other room. The B&B is located 10 minutes from the main train station and 15 minutes walk from the city center of Florence. I would definitely recommend this B&B if you looking for good and cheap accommodation.
