“Simone made it wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

We arrived after hours and Simone gave us step by step directions to get from the train station to the B&B and into the rooms. The rooms were very nice and the view from the roof top terrace was spectacular. Simone treated us royally with breakfast and cappuccino in the mornings and even went out of her way to provide me with a decaf cappuccino. She treated every guest as if they were visiting her own home. We would definitely stay here again.

First and foremost a huge thank you to Simone who could not have been more helpful or friendly. Simone sent us on our travels each time with a great big smile on our faces. As for the B&B it's self what can I say, it ticked all the boxes and what a roof terrace. We had the good fortune to have the terrace to our selves one night whilst savoring the view and a little Prosecco.
As luck would have it there was an Orchestra playing in the Bargello across the street so we had a free concert for over an hour. A very memorable stay. I couldn't reccomend a stay highly enough.

Cormac.

We spent 4 nights here and loved it. It is very central to all the sights in Florence. It is clean, well air-conditioned with windows that can be opened if the weather is nice. It also has a great private terrace from which most of the dome can be seen. Gabrielle and Simone were very friendly and helpful. We would definately stay here again. The only improvement/recommendation I would make would be to add some protein to the carb heavy breakfast, perhaps a boiled egg or some cheese.

First stay in Florence, there were six of us traveling from the states. We could not have asked for a better place to rest our traveling bodies. Gabriella makes you feel at home, with a wonderful cup of coffee in the morning, great conversation, and a garden terrace that provides a roof top look at the city of Florence. Her location was perfect to all the sights we wanted to see and Gabriella and Simone provided little tips on restaurants and shopping that helped us a lot in a city we were unfamiliar with. Highly recommend this B & B!

Our first stay in Italy was a great way to start our vacation, what a gem of a B&B. Gabriella makes your stay even better, what a wonderful hostess. Our room was so comfortable, and we really enjoyed our small balcony. Breakfast in the morning was a wonderful start to each day, we visited
with all the other guest and Gabriella, met new friends, and the cappuccino is awesome. Gabriella
was always so helpful with directions, attractions, and resturants, so happy to help in any way. Just remember there are many stairs to climb to get to her door, but well worth it !

Room Tip: 3 flights of stairs to climb to get to the B&B

This B&B was very nice. The owner and her helper were friendly and very helpful. We arrived in Florence much earlier than expected (10:30 am) and were a little hesitant about showing up at the B&B too early. When we rang the bell and told them that we had reservations, the owner responded with a very friendly exclamation of my first name and expressed excitement that we have arrived. I knew from other reviews that they were on the 3rd floor (4th for US) and that they had no elevator. The owner and her helper came running down the stairs to help us with our luggage. Once at the B&B, they were more than eager to get us settled even with our early arrival. Throughout our stay they were very friendly and continued to provide helpful information.

The location was ideal and very convenient. The hotel is only a half a block from the Bargello Museum and 1 block to the Uffizi Gallery. It was only about a 2-3 block walk to the Duomo.

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony which was a very nice place to kick back and relax for an hour before heading...

We stayed two nights. Location is perfect- close to everything we wanted to see. You can see the top of the Duomo and the tower of the Bargello from the rooftop deck, which is an excellent spot for early evening wine and snacks. Gabriella is a great hostess, and we enjoyed the breakfast in her kitchen along with the conversation. The room was small, but neat and clean. The only complaint we could make would be the outside noise at all hours of the night. But, that comes with sleeping in the heart of a tourist filled city. The steps to the rooms are steep and long, which might be tough for some. Bring small luggage!
