“Nice place, reasonably well located.”
Reviewed 5 December 2010

Off a busy street but down a little alley into a garden that felt quiet in the city. Parking no problem and a private gate to enter the garden.
2 flights of stairs to our room - no lift (not a problem for us).
One room with a private bathroom, the other with a private bathroom located in the hallway.
A fridge in the common area downstairs offers beverages and an honour system cash bowl. It was appreciated!
Nice towels and sheets - not changed during the day (I think every three days), but beds were made up daily.
Internet slow but serviceable.
My bed was firm but sagged in the middle, still I slept ok.
We walked to the bus station to catch the on off bus around Florence and walked home again afterwards. I would say a 15 - 20 minute walk with two 40 somethings, a 12 year old and a 74 year old.
Breakfast was just ok. Nice capuccino, hot chocolate (too much chocolate for my son's taste), bread, sweet buns, chocoloate swirl cake, apricot pie, yogurt, purple juice etc.

We arrived late on a Sunday evening to a very warm welcome by the owner (I think!). Lovely gentleman. Beautiful old Tuscan house which has been renovated. Beautiful stairs, spotlessly clean. Room was open and spacious, same with bathroom again, very clean. The owners son was equally as helpful as his father providing us with as much information as he could, in an extremely pleasant and courteous manner. Would recommend a taxi (€10.00) from SMN Train station, it's just the handiest. About a 15 minute walk to SMN trainstation, so easy to head back towards sightseeing tours etc. Pleasant patio to eat breakfast outside. Breakfast is basic, but plenty there get you off to a good start for the day! I would highly recommend Casa Toselli!

It is a good 30 mins walk from the train station if you know your way. There is no lift access to the rooms. We had a room that faced the car park. It was a late summer so we had to leave the windows open for the night as there is no air conditioning. The next morning we woke up to find ourselves stung quite a few times by mosquitoes. The bathroom is grim and smell of excessive bleach used to try to clean the shower area. The towels are not changed daily which is a real surprise as we have travelled through Italy and this is the first time we find a hotel at this rate that changes your towels only every other day.
I will definitely not be returning to this hotel ever again.

We stayed at Casa Toselli in April 2008. The hotel is very spacious, clean and very well priced. While booking I was skeptical, thinking it maybe a cheap hostel type place, but was pleasantly surprised with quality of the rooms and facilities. We stayed in a room with private bath which was pretty good, we did not opt for shared bath rooms. Its feels like a B&B which is run quite professionally, and staff (manager and his son) are very helpful and friendly. If you have car they have free parking as well. Only thing make sure to get proper directions if you are going to take a bus from SNM station (check one of the earlier reviews provides some good directions). Take Bus 17, 29 or 30 (towards PUCCINI) from SMN and get off at the Bellini stop, which is bang opp Casa Toselli, hotel is located in the small alley next to a Bank. Florence commuters are not very helpful on buses, younger crowd is better, it was hard getting help ... people dont know or pretend not to know English. For the first trip from SMN to hotel, we thought it would have been worth taking a taxi only 10 Euros, espcially if you have some heavy bags, its not very easy in buses. The folks at the hotel are very helpful with maps, buses #'s and directions and also have bus tickets there to pick-up if you need. Don't expect a fancy breakfast, its limited, but you can't expect more for the rates. The location is quite convenient, about 10 mins by bus to main Florence sights.

  • Liked — Spacious rooms, convenient location and good value
  • Disliked — Nothing much really - no TV

I loved the look of this place. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was very spacious. There was no tv in the room, but located in the common lounge, which got very smoky at night. You could walk to the duomo, about 20 minute walk, but we opted for bus no. 17, which takes you right in front of the duomo in five minutes. also, we would recommend taking that bus from the s.m.n. rail station to get dropped right in front of the bed and breakfast. The bathroom was not perfectly clean, but manageable.

The proprietors are most gracious and helpful, and the bed, in a very spacious room, was the most comfortable we've ever had in Italy. The cost, in March, was very reasonable. Location is about a mile or so from the Duomo, but it's a pleasant walk down the Lungarno. Frequent bus service.

You can safely park your car here. Its like an old Tuscan house and beautifully kept. Bathroom was huge, room small but comfy. Concierge was marvellous, lovely seating area downstairs. Decoration etc perfect.
Breakfast in bed and again it was just fine. Seated area outside for nice weather. It is a good walk into town, we timed it at 20 minutes but its flat and easy. Nice resturants nearby. Couldnt believe we were in Florence, so quiet and calm. Excellent value for money.
