I couldn't have picked a better place! Overall, it was a great place to stay - the room, bathroom size, location and Claudio's wonderful hospitality. I will definitely stay there again!

Ghiberti proved to be an excellent choice ! The owners , who take care of everything , have "an eye" for details , the rooms are of very good size and nicely decorated ,with extremely comfortable beds; bathrooms are modern , location is perfect and so are cleanliness and breakfast.
Also , free internet in the rooms happened to be very convenient and helpful.
To simplify , I would say that Tourist House Ghiberti is 10 !!!!!!

Tourist House was a nice B&B to stay in Florence. The room is small but really comfortable bed and well designed with good storage space to put your stuff, both in the bedroom and the bathroom. The shower quality was great - hot water and good pressure. A/C worked really well. Our room was right next to the reception desk but was very quiet - we barely heard anything inside or outside. The breakfast had a nice selection, including eggs. Very well located - right near the Duomo, and a quiet area. Everything in Florence is close and within walking distance, so I don't think there is a bad location. The building had an odor in the lobby, but no smell once you got into the hotel area - probably just an old building with moisture. Each room has its own PC and Internet, which was very convenient. The staff helped us get reservations at the museums the day before.

We stayed 5 nights at Tourist House Ghiberti and found it to be a terrific place. The room was beautiful, the location was great, and the breakfast and service was excellent. We found Claudio and Lorenzo went out of their way to be accommodating and helpful. We would definitely return and highly reccommend Tourist House Ghiberti.

Couldn't have picked a better hotel - our room was spacious, comfortable and, even though it faced onto the street, very quiet and peaceful. Our host Lorenzo was very helpful. He booked us advance tickets for the Uffizi and recommended excellent and affordable restaurants and cafes. I have told all my friends about this little gem and if I ever get the chance to return to Florence, will definitely stay at the Ghiberti again !!

The size and decor of room & bathroom was great as compared to other similar hotels we have stayed in. The location is very central. The access of internet in the room is very convenient for today's traveller.
Overall a good experience

The location is what makes this accommodation and it lived up to expectation with a large room. It is possible to walk from the station, but a bit of a haul with cases, through the busy shopping area and over cobble stones. Another time we'd use the bus, which stops very near by. The entrance is a little intimidating but, with the electronic entry system, we felt secure. Note that the accommodation is on the first floor of the building.
A varied breakfast was served up to 11.00, unusual in a small property with only 5 bedrooms. We enjoyed the extra facilities including the jacuzzi. However, the internet was really too slow to use, but then we didn't go to Florence to spend time on the computer, so no hassle there.
The room had plenty of storage space and there was outside seating for better weather, as well as a sofa in the breakfast room, though no comfy chairs in the room.
