“Look no further, this is THE place to stay!”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

My friends and I were travelling in Italy for 3 weeks and Florence was our last stop. Arco Antico proved to be our 'home away from home'. The room we got was facing the lane, it was a little noisy during the day, but at night it was OK. Anyway we were too tired to be bothered with anything after all the walking for so many weeks :) Our room was cleaned daily, a really nice touch for a B&B I would say, and breakfast was good enough for us to get our day started. Matteo was very kind to draw up some restaurants we should try out, and also helped us with the booking at the Uffizi.
Location - perfect, a stone's throw from the Duomo, Mercato, and short stroll to basically everywhere. Plenty of Nearby cafes and restaurants.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the lane.

Having stayed at Arco Antico with my daughter 3 years ago, I decided to come back to what I knew and liked with my husband and daughter this fall. The b&b is in a great location: close to the railway station and the Duomo, the Uffizi, the Galleria dell'Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and all other major sites in Florence. Matteo was very welcoming and anxious to to be helpful and meet all of out needs. His English is excellent also. The rooms are clean and a good size by Florence standards, with ensuites and air conditioning - the weather was very very warm in Florence. Breakfast was great, and recommendations for restaurants close by were always good.

We were very pleased with the service. Matteo was a great host. He speaks good English which was great for us (we spoke no Italian), was always friendly and helpful and offered very good advice and suggestions for trips in and around Florence.
Basic, clean and airy room with ensuite. We looked forward to breakfast every day. Matteo offered a wide choice to suit everyone including personalised coffee.
Very close to the train station and buses. Good selection of restaurants close by. Only a few minutes walk from a large street market and the very centre of the Historical Centre of Florence. I will be returning when I next travel to Florence.

Arco Antico is in a great location to be a base for sight-seeing all over Florence. It's just a few blocks from the railway station and there are lots of great restaurants near-by. The room was basic but clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was nice although it would be great if it was served earlier. For the price, it was a very good value.
