Pro,s
This is a great little B&B that is about 500m away from the train station.
Rooms are tidy & clean and the manager Marcella was super nice and helpfull.
She spoke some English and always attended to our needs when asked.
Breakfast was good with just the right amount of food.

Con's
Not in the best area, due to the volume of traffic.

I highly recommend this B&B for the price and location near station.

Thanks you Marcella for your kindness and help during our stay.

Our friends and us stayed there for 3 nights in May.The rooms were very clean and breakfast was good.Our host Marcella was wonderful.She was very friendly and helped us with directions and suggestions for restaurants and the sights.They also kept our suitcases while we traveled to other cities until we returned which saved a lot of hassle.Not in the prettiest part of town,but close to train station and a short walk to all the main sights and very reasonable rates.It was a very friendly stay.

My wife and i stayed here as we enjoyed Christmas in Florence and absolutely loved it. The location was close to the attractions (15 min walk at a leisurely pace to "the dome" plaza), it was very clean and welcoming, and the staff (mariella) was incredible. It felt like we were staying at a friends house for the weekend.

This is a very clean and tidy B&B wih the basic amenties you need for a trip. We were disappointed with the location, it is about 10-15 min walk to the main train station and then another 10 mins or so into the heart of Florence. At night we got cabs back and forth as it was quite a dark part of time. Otherwise the lady who runs the B&B is delightful and it was good value for money.

We had a really nice time staying at Antica Posta during our visit to Florence. The B&B is very beautifully decorated and has all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Unlike other B&Bs we experienced in Italy, it was also very well managed. Mariela was extremely friendly and helpful with lots of great suggestions and information. The B&B is a 10 minute walk from the train station. We would certainly stay here again if we visit Florence again!

We enjoyed our stay at Antica Posta B&B. The staff were always available to us, very friendly, and very helpful. The B&B was clean, comfortable, and quiet despite being located on a busy street. They gave us a great map of the city and helped to coordinate a day tour into Tuscany. We definitely would stay here again!
