“Wonderful Hospitality”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

This was my first visit to Italy and the first time staying in a bed and breakfast. Giuliana was so friendly and gave us a map of the city and an overview of the different areas and sites to see. We stayed in a hotel in Rome and an apartment in Venice and I must say A Florence View was by far the best. The location is ideal and easy to get to from the train station and within walking distance to the museums. The breakfast was amazing and spoiled us all. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to Florence! Our room did not have much of a view so definitely request the room facing the square, as I will next time.

Hotel is located in the 17-th century house on the central square. Great owner Julianna! Breathtaking view from the window. Fridge, tea kettle and minibar in the room. Fast internet, large room and wide bed. Unbelievable for Italy breakfast: coffee, juice, croissant, yogurt, fresh strawberry, toasts, butter, jam, eggs, apple pie, cheese and ham. Everything is very professional and kindhearted!

Room Tip: Ask Julianna.

We would recommend this B&B to all of our friends and family. Ideal central location, window to window with the beautiful cathedral, looking over the main square. On arrival the owners gave us a lovely warm and friendly welcome and recommended a number of main attractions in the city, and where to find them etc. The interior throughout is quaint and charming, and the bedroom had everything we needed, including a very COMFY bed! Breakfast each morning was delicious, served each morning to your room. We couldn't have asked for a more friendly, helpful and beautiful place to stay for our in time in Florence.

Room Tip: We had a fabulous bedroom third floor up with our own bathroom, two living spaces and a garden terra...

This bed and breakfast is located right outside of "the Duomo"' and is in perfect walking location to all major tourist attractions. The owners are beyond hospitable and offer wonderful recommendations for various attractions and wonderful wine tasting rooms and eateries.
The room is located three flights up, but like most of Italy, you have to work a little to get to the good places! The room was very clean, they had nice toiletries, and the breakfast was simple but delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel for any travelers.
Grazie!

We stayed here for three nights (October 3 - 6, 2013), and the first thing we noticed was how warmly we were greeted by the proprietress, Guiliana. We had emailed her to let her know approximately when we would be arriving, and she greeted us at the door, brought our bags up to the room, and settled us in. She and her brother, Leonardo, own and operate the place, and their attention to detail is impeccable - we walked in and it smelled like vanilla sugar cookies. When Guiliana showed us to our "room," she told us that we had the "apartment," which consists of a bedroom, two "living rooms," a lovely bathroom, and a porch on the back of the building, where we had a wonderful take-home dinner of lasagna and wine. Guiliana was also very helpful to us, as we needed to find a self-service laundry. She pulled out a map, marked a couple of good spots, and even pointed out some sights near them so that we'd have things to see while we were waiting for our laundry to be done. She also told us about one of her favorite places -- the Apothecary of Santa Maria Novella -- where we were able to buy some fabulous gifts for our friends back home. We are so glad that she told us about it, since we would likely have missed it otherwise. But nothing could prepare us for the view out of our bedroom window -- we were so close to the Battistero, it felt like we could reach out and touch it -- simply amazing! It left us speechless for several minutes, and then we couldn't stop gloating about our unbelievable luck! And even more lovely is the fact that the windows are completely soundproof, so even though you are right on the main piazza, you will never hear a sound when you're sleeping. Waking up to that view is a magical thing, and was one of the many great things we loved about Florence. We are loathe to tell you all what an amazing room this is, for fear that it will never be available to us again, but when (not if) we return to Florence, we would never consider staying in any other room, let alone any other establishment. (P.S. -- They make incredible croissants fresh every morning in their kitchen, and breakfast is served to you in your room.)
