“Really convenient location”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 via mobile

Nice B&B in a (I wood say) perfect location to visit Firenze on foot, also during the night, close to restaurants and facilities.
The house is nice and the room/bathroom is clean. Breakfast is with fresh made croissants, milk/coffee/tea/juice (not salty). I would suggest it for short stays, as you don't have the room cleaning service or change for towels/sheet as in a hotel (at least for 6 days you don't have it).

Stayed December 2012, travelled as a couple

Spent two nights at this B & B and would definitely recommend it. Location was fantastic, although a little difficult to find initially. Ricardo was very accommodating, provided an excellent breakfast, his recommendations for dinner were perfect. Room was comfortable and clean, bathroom was good sized. Nice change from the hotels and wonderful personalized service.

We stayed here for only one night, however, the rooms were amazing as was the owner/manager. Terrific location, very good rates, very clean rooms, just lovely! We will stay there again when we are next in Florence!

Room Tip: It is just off the street in a quiet little alley but difficult to find, get specific directions! A...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at B&B La Gradiva. Ricardo was an excellent host. Every morning he would bring the most amazing pastries and meats and cheeses. By far the best breakfast we had at the several b&bs we stayed during our 3 weeks in Italy. The rooms and bathrooms are all very new/recently renovated and the location was wonderful. Ricardo offered 15 euro/day parking at his home outside of the city and drove us to and from the B&B when dropping off our car. Would highly recommend and plan on staying here again on our next trip to Florence.

Reviewed 11 April 2012

I highly recommend B&B La Gradiva if you are looking for a more quaint accommodation in Florence, yet still very close to city center. I stayed 2 nights at this B&B in late March 2012 while visiting my daughter who is studying in Florence for the semester. Ricardo, the owner, was so nice and helpful. He showed us to the B&B which is located 2 stories above street level. Very safe and secure. 3 keys must be used to get from the entrance to the room. The bedroom and private bath were both a very nice size and very clean and comfortable. Large TV, but with no English channels (coming soon though, he said). But who cares? You're in Florence! And, there is free Wifi, so we downloaded a movie late one evening after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. He served us a delicious breakfast with tea, coffee, juice, and freshly made croissants and pastries from a local bakery. Ricardo even picked me up at 5:45am to take me to the airport. He charged a small fee for this, somewhat less than what a taxi would have cost. Very nice property and host. I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We chose the double room (2 twins beds pushed together) overlooking the street.
