L'Argentiere B&B
Ranked #60 of 333 Speciality Lodging in Florence
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Good for the value, we had a big apartment, everything work very well and the staff (cristina) was very helpfull with us.
Internet is ok, big bathroom and nice garden.
The parking is for pay and it's 15 euros a night.
it's close to the bus stop to go to Florence.
Tip: If you want to go walking, do it on the mornig, getting back come by bus, it's a 30/40 minut walk

We stayed in an apartment, which included a kitchenette. Sadly there was no plug for the sink, no knives for chopping food, no chopping board, no peeler, the cutlery was flimsy, and the saucepans etc. that were available were useless. Not enough plates/glasses/cups for two people.

The breakfast provided was horrendous: old meats, boiled eggs that were clearly days old, a hot-milk jug covered in mould, packs of shop-bought cakes in plastic, some kind of sickly red squash rather than actual fruit juice. The staff were sat in a little break room to the side and it felt like we were intruding by having our breakfast.

The apartment stank of damp. The shower was very tiny and mouldy, with some sort of absorbent sponge slip mat that you sank into and I'm sure was very unhygienic. The toilet was caked with dirt on the inside. One of the bedside cabinets had some kind of slime in it and on the handle.

They had given us about four lamps but there were only about two sockets in the apartment and the lamps were placed nowhere near them. We could have moved them but there was no point having four lamps on the floor by the door. They have photoshopped an image of the BBC onto the pics of their TVs online but actually there is only Italian TV.

They claim to speak English on the website but actually the English on reception is very poor and you have to speak some Italian to get by. Not a problem if you are aware of it, but the website is again misleading.

Once we finally had the plug for the sink we were horrified when, after finishing the washing up, the pipe under the sink came away and flooded the kitchen with old dish water. Some of the kitchen units looked rather precarious.

Only positives: the staff did try to sort out the missing kitchen bits and largely succeeded. The terrace is absolutely amazing.

Owner took money and charged our credit card for a room they did not provide, we wrote to the premises on Booking.com and advised them we would arrive late, they accepted the booking and charged our credit card, when we arrived the premises was closed and signs not to call or ring any bell. Its a scam for the Hotel premises to make money from people. Dont book here unless you are willing to loose your cash. Unfriendly and clearly a scam to extract money from people.

This B&B is located in a nice neighborhood just a bit outside of the city. It is only a 10 minute bus ride into town. The rooms were very clean, huge, and the staff was friendly. They were helpful in getting us around, and make you feel like you are staying at a friends house vs an actual hotel. They provided us with helpful printouts, and the bus stop was just walking distance from it. The terrace upstairs has a great view, and is peaceful.. especially for enjoying late night wine before bed. I would stay here again.

The venue totally satisfied my expectations. It’s cheap and cosy. We’ve had a good time. Besides, the room was really clean and the staff were nice. Florence’s very romantic It was a dream come true!
Rooms were very spacious and free-wifi provided. Breakfast and parking place were all for free as well thanks to the fact that we directly booked on their website. Thumbs up!!

Their website says parking is FREE. They charge e15 per night for parking. It isn't free.

The room smelled. The staff isn't friendly. The shower so small I thought I was standing in a coffin.

The pictures on the web site do not match ANY of the rooms we saw.

Gentile Cliente,
ci dispiace leggere dalla sua recenzione queste affermazioni che ritengo inappropriate .

Il motivo per il quale dissento è perchè la mia politica in merito al costo del parcheggio è chiara e visibile ovunque : se la prenotazione è fatta dal nostro sito, il parcheggio è gratuito .
Se la prenotazione è tramite agenzia (come ben descritto in ogni singola agenzia) il costo è di euro 15 .
Il personale è composto da persone che da anni prestano la loro professionalità al servizio della clientela con serietà e condotta di cui ne vado fiero.
Bisognerebbe avere più rispetto difronte a queste persone e non trattarle con superficialità.
Tutte le foto riferite al sito sono vere e attendibili.
Mi scuso con la notra gentile clientela nel leggere queste accuse diffamatorie e infondate.

I stayed here in August. Before arriving I check the other reviews to see what previous guests have to say about this b&b but from experience also know that everybody's expectations are very different. Check in was quick the room was ready and the staff very pleasant,happy and professional.
Our room was clean and the b&b is modern and classic, i like it.
Good location, easy to access the city. Good for young people, but also families.
I so far am so pleased I wanted to put a review on here now.
