“Genuine Florentine Hospitality”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We love Elisabeta Nae, the hostess of this B & B. We followed her from her old B & B into her newest endeavor Marbo Florence. This is the fifth time we have stayed with her, and to us she IS Florence! A splendid hostess, she goes the extra mile (kilometer) in every way. The rooms are all newly rennovated and very comfortable. The breakfast is great with good variety and her special good morning. She always wants to know your plans for the day and makes certain you know the correct buses to take. The location is excellent--right by the train station, just steps from the old city center.

Beta, the owner of the B&B was wonderful. She speaks cute English with an Italian accent. She always kept us good company at breakfast. She worked really hard to make me comfortable. She even arranged museum reservations for me so I didn't have to wait in-line.

I totally felt like I was at home.

The WiFi was occasionally inaccessible from my room.

Breakfast was always good but there were no non-pork (chicken, turkey or beef) meat options available. It would have been better to have alternative meat choices for those who don't eat pork because of religious or dietary reasons.

Despite these minor issues I believe that it is a great place for your value.

I will definitely stay there again and I highly recommend it.

I honestly don't know how can people write such great reviews about this place while our experience there at the same time was an entirely different one.
I traveled with my wife and my son and we are not the pickiest people in the world!
The only positive thing I can mention was the size of the room and the really friendly (male)receptionist. The room was really big, but has obviously not been cleaned in an appropriate manner since the first thing we found upon arrival was a half full glass of old orange juice. The real shocker was the floor in the bathroom which was full of hairs from the previous guests and completely covered in yellow urine-stains on the toilet and the floor around it . The fact that these stains where already brownish and dried up is a clear indication that the bathroom has never been properly cleaned. The toothbrush-holder was disgustingly white from inside and outside. It is quite astonishing that in the 21th century places which such a low or actually no standard of hygiene are allowed to open and stay open for business. The next joke, and it really was a joke, was breakfast. We are not great eaters in the morning but what was presented to us in the tiny and again quite dirty breakfast-room, was a breakfast without coffee, with old bread and a completely incapable waitress. Since there was no coffee we asked for black tea (which we could see in a teabox on the counter) and got 3 times a instant-cacao mixture. Since we speak 4 languages perfectly one would assume that we would be able to explain that this is not what we ordered but the waitress did obviously not understand us or didn't want to understand us. We don't expect anybody to speak English or in our mother-tongue to us but we kind of expect that someone who works in tourism has a basic vocabulary-knowledge pertaining to food. Since our reclamation was just answered with unfriendliness and rolling eyes we just left and skipped breakfast the next day. Assuming that the same person also cleans the rooms.....it makes all perfect sense.

We only stayed one night, but Betta did everything possible to make sure it was extra special and that we had everything we needed. The hotel is located within very easy walking distance of the train station and some nice restaurants. Our room was very quiet and efficient. When I return to Florence, this is where I will stay!

This B&B is great, and especially the people! They were so sweet and helpful!
The rooms are very good, modern and most important clean.
Also, the location is very good.
And Breakfast is very good as normally you only get a croissant in Italy.
I will definitely come back;)
Thank you!

It took us about 5-8 minutes to find the place, the building is in front of a bus stop. The owner was very friendly, and spoke pretty good English, she was even kind enough to mark out routes on our map and tells us which bus number will take us to certain places. The rooms were clean and spacious, and modern looking also. We were worried about parking in the area, so we emailed the place to let them know we were driving, the owner has some type of deal with one of the parking garages about 90-100 meters from the hotel for only 25 Euros for 24 hours, and if the garage is full all you have to do is mention that you stay at the Marbo B&B and they'll accommodate you. Almost everything was within walking distance from the hotel, and it wasn't hard at all and we were travelling with 2 children and a 2 month old baby. Definitely recommend this place, the price wasn't bad either.
