“4 days in a Charming city”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Charming area. You feel very welcome at Abajour B&B.
We went to Florence for the Marathon, and
Paolo was SO helpful. With busplans, taxi and so on.
The room we had was i bit small, but very very nice.

There is bus nearby, and it takes about 5-10 minutes to go Down town.

I can give my warmest recommendation to Abatjour B&B

We spent two nights in Florence in this Hostel. For the price we paid, we doubt we could have found a better deal. Paolo, the owner is very friendly and gentle, and the concept of the hostel is cute! The breakfast is left inside the bedroom. Wifi is good. It's very close to one of the best gelatarias we tried in Italy!!! To go to downtown of Florence, you go by bus, in a 5minute ride!

Everything went perfect.

It was a shame we only had one night here as the hotel is superb, set in an old building with loads of character, the rooms are spotless and well appointed and Paolo was very helpful with advice re his city and local restaraunts,he also happily swopped dates around because of a mix up we had without the loss of a non refundable booking, this would'nt have had an influence on the hotel tho, just wished we could have stayed longer recommended hotel if you want clean , with character this is it

Thankfully our overnight train from France was late because we rolled up by taxi to the B&B at 9 am right as the owner, Paolo, arrived. This was lucky for us because we didn't have WiFi to check when the place opened and Paolo gladly let us store our luggage until our room was ready. We instantly received such warm vibes from the place. Paolo is quite possibly the nicest most accommodating host ever. We went and had a full day in Florence and returned to an adorable room with a comfy queen sized bed (two mattresses pushed together). On our last day we rented bikes from the B & B for a full day. They were perfect for town and since Paolo used to be a champion motocross rider, he knew exactly how to prepare us for the terrain ahead. The only con was that the breakfast was mediocre, it was all prepackaged carbs. Not a big downside to on otherwise fantastic accommodation! Not enough to reduce our 5 star rating. Thank you Paolo, you made our stay lovely!!

Nice hotel, calm and friendly atmosphere, not so far from historical sites, cafe, clean and kind service. Paolo is polite, friendly and very hearty. Should be recommended, i'd like to stay there again once there is an occasion to see Firenze

I stayed at Abatjour when I visited Florence for one night. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner, Paulo. He was very friendly and helpful. He recommended a lovely restaurant nearby- their food was delicious! The room at Abatjour was cute and cozy. It was also very clean. The B&B provided wifi- that was a plus! I will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: The twin beds were a bit squeaky- that was the only down side.

Looking for the place to sleep in Firenze, we have desided to stop in Abajour `cos of the comfortable position and "good" price. Thiswhat we found was disappointing: broken floor in the room, dirty, quitching bads, unimaginably old and broken furniture in the room, broken roof-windows. We booked B and B, but this what they sell you under the name of the breakfast is really a joke: packed in plastic breads and and marmelades that wait for you in the room already the day befour. We went every morning to buy the breakfast fresh bread and milk, butter and so on, on our own. It is really one of the places where you are happy to go away. although all this negative things, the owner was a nice friendly man, who was all the time happy and ready to help.
