B&B Tourist House Ghiberti
Ranked #10 of 657 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Just 20 minutes easy walk from the railway station and bus station, a mere two minutes walk from the Duomo, five minutes from the Uffizzi and Accademia etc. It's hard to envisage anywhere better situated for a stay in the centre of Florence. More than that, however, the Ghiberti is a comfortable, well-equipped and charmingly run B&B hotel.

Our room was large, had a HUGE comfortable bed, and all the facilities anyone staying for a midwinter week could want. Breakfast was fresh and varied, in comfortable, bright surroundings. The ability to get a tray of tea and biscuits in the room for something like €2 late in the afternoon was welcome to us, resting between a day's culture and an evening's dining out.

Very good. We hope to be able to visit again.

This is one of the best B&Bs I have had the pleasure of staying in. Tourist House Ghiberti is not only excellent in comfort, service and cleanliness, it is also within walking distance to many fantastic attractions in Florence. From the moment we checked in, I was impressed with the service and professionalism of the staff. The entire house is extremely clean, the bathroom was spotless and huge, a sauna and jacuzzi at our disposal, the room came equipped with a PC and I need to highlight again the cleanliness of the room.

Breakfast was akin to what you would get from a hotel with an excellent spread of juices, milk, tea, coffee, toasts, bread, croissants, cakes, biscuits, fruits, muesli, cold cuts and cheeses. It is only a 2 minutes walk from the Duomo and from there on, you can literally walk about 20 minutes to any major attractions including Academia, Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. Even piazza Michelangelo was a very comfortable 30 minutes walk which was worth every second and step up.

Would I stay here again? I definitely would! My stay unfortunately was for a short 4-day stay mid December but come summer, I would love to visit Florence again and hopefully stay at this marvellous B&B.

Well done Tourist House Ghiberti!!

We stayed for three nights while exploring Florence. This is in a good central location with everything in walking distance. The room was spacious, with computer with Internet access plus wifi for the laptop. Great sound system, tv etc. Big bathroom with bath and shower. Excellent breakfast. All in a very easy relaxed but efficient atmosphere. I highly recommend this place as having everything you need as a base for touring the city.

Awesome room! Spacious, lots of storage, clean, modern bathroom, beautiful view of the garden and GREAT location, right near the duomo. Check in was easy. Breakfast was perfect. WIFI works in your room, which I found to be rare in many places in Europe. Rooms and halls decorated by original artwork from one artist, so it is like a gallery of his work and very lovely! I would come back to this room in a heartbeat! Unfortunately, we only were booked for one night. We loved our room so much, we paid to stay another! I wish I could have stayed longer.

Tourist Hou Ghiberti has nice staff and big rooms. We had a problem with our train and we arrived much later than expected but it was not a problem. The location cannot be beat. Breakfast was ample to start our day. They just really made us feel at home and find our way around town.Their recommendations for eating were not expensive. Thank you for everything and we hope to see you again!

Clean, modern and spacious accommodation in central Florence. This place comes with most of the facilities of a five star hotel. Checkin was efficient and friendly. The room was large, with plenty of room for bags etc. The bathroom was modern and spotlessly clean. Good continental breakfast. The location was great, close to the tourist spots in Florence, and near some great restaurants. Would happily return when we are next in Florence.
