“A very pleasant stay in Florence”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

We stayed at A casa di Virgilio, a very pleasant bed+breakfast just a little way out of Florence city centre (number 14 bus). The bedrooms are big, the breakfast is varied, tasty and well-presented and the owners extremely friendly and hospitable. I can't recommend them highly enough!

A clean and comfortable place in a middle-class Florentine neighborhood with scarcely another tourist in sight. Proprietor very helpful. Reasonably spacious room, average + breakfast is offered. Double windows keep out most of the street noise. Frequent public bus service to the center of Florence. Good family-run restaurants in the immediate area; give 'MariaChristina's', in the same piazza, a try - not much to look at from the outside, but a Ma&Pa sort of place with a warm ambiance, serving very good food at quite a reasonable price.

Casa di Virgillio was a delightful place to stay in Florence, and a very good value for the price. My husband and I stayed at the B&B for five nights and could not have picked a better place! First of all, the room was VERY clean. At this point of our travels, we had been traveling in Italy for several weeks, and this was the first time that I felt truly comfortable and at ease with our surroundings. Laura, the owner, was a very gracious and warm hostess. She made sure that we had everything that we needed. She also cleans the room every day while you are out, which is not something that you will always find in a B&B like this. Also, she was kind enough to let us use the kitchen in the B&B at night to cook ourselves dinner. We truly felt at home! Also, the B&B is located in Rifredi. We loved this, because we were just a bus ride away from the tourist attractions, but far enough away to feel like we were in the "real" Florence. There are really great "locals" restaurants and boutique shopping about a 10 min. walk away and the B&B is situated on a quaint square. Also, the bus stop is literally right outside of the building so it was very easy to get into town when we wanted to. Also, the breakfast that was served every morning was by far the best appointed breakfast that we have had on our travels. There were always the basics (cereal, juices, coffee, danishes, fruit, etc.), but she would always add a few different items each morning, such as a lovely pastry with dried grapes (a Florence specialty), so that it never got boring. Casa di Virgillio is hands down the best place to stay in Florence!

Room Tip: The Green room was great!

Amazing sweet and thoughtful hostess. 20 minutes walk from the station. Next two supermarkets. Clean, comfortable, warm and comfortable. The kitchen at your disposal. Have stayed for 2 nights longer than originally planned.

we travelled to Firenze and chose this B&B just for random, but it is really a good place! The host is very very nice, she is kind and serves very good. I definitely like this place and might choose it next time if possible...

We traveled by car over Tuscany and stayed in Firenze for 4 days. I would like to advise traveller by car about park possibility. 1. Stay on the street 12 euro for 8:00-20:00. 2. Park garage -16euro/day. 3. Ask Laura (B&B owner) about street without parking fee ( a few meters away from hotel). Room are colorful, kitchen is fully equipped, it is possible to make a small dinner or just a tee. The breakfast is typical for Italy (coffee&tee, bread, jam, eggs, yogurt, ham&chees). Laura is ready to help everyone with any request.

Apartment is only a short bus ride from the main train station and main attractions. Clean, quiet neighborhood, nice coop nearby. Laura was very sweet and helpful - overall a great stay. Will stay here again if I return to Florence!
