“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

This quaint little B&B is located approximately 15 minutes walk away from central Florence. The location is a little noisy, but being a busy city this isn't surprising. There are currently two rooms available with a third being renovated. Joel is the resident artist so expect to find lots of bright colours and modern abstract art. The rooms are well furnished, decorated to a high standard and were spotlessly clean.

The owners are very friendly and accommodating and make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive. They are happy to chat but aren't intrusive. They both speak a good level of English (as well as German and Italian) so it's easy to communicate.

Breakfast deserves a special mention, they only serve vegetarian food, but you'd be hard pressed to find better. Home made cakes, fresh fruit, toast, cheese, eggs and the best coffee we've ever had. There was so much (delivered to the room each morning) that we were able to take the "leftovers" out with us to snack on during the day. In summary it was so good that my decidedly carnivorous other half didn't complain once!

On their website they advise that toiletries are provided, in reality these are only samples so you'll need to bring your own. It's a nice touch but wouldn't keep you feeling fresh for the duration of your stay.

There was a little minibar in our room and the prices were very reasonable by anyone's standards.

Room Tip: We stayed in the green room. The low Japanese style bed is incredibly comfortable and the room itsel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A Veg B&B La Casa dell'Artista is the first Veg B&B in Florence. It is an original environment located in a beautiful stone building which dates back to the '30s. It will allow you to experience the city and the vegan philosophy closely. The B&B is located in the first borough just outside the historical centre of Florence which can be easily reached on foot or by public transport. La Casa dell'Artista offers a quiet stay in a beautiful and family-run environment where, as much as we can, we respect the other creatures and the environment following the values of the vegetarian and vegan philosophies. La Casa dell'Artista provides a service which is exclusively VEG but which is also offered to everybody, that is to say to vegetarians, to vegans and to all the people who are concerned with these issues. Pets are welcome in La Casa dell'Artista and you will be served only vegetarian and vegan dishes, preferably biological. We use natural products which have a low impact on the environment and are cruelty free. "Be the change you want to see in the world" ... more   less
