“Lovely host, 5 star breakfast, beautiful rooms”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Elena is the perfect host. You can tell she's welcoming people to her home because she's born for it - she loves to meet new people and is sad everytime she has to say goodbye to one of her guests (she even gave us a small present before we left.). She she has a great sense of humour, it was lovely to sit and chat with her during or after breakfast.
Upon arrival we were presented with a map of Florence on which she had already written the relevant bus connections, recommendations for restaurants, gelaterias and bars.
The room was quiet, sunny and very clean, the wifi worked well.
Elena's breakfast is simply unbeatable! Every morning she varied her egg specialties (scrambled egg on day 1, a quiche on day 2) and presented us with a small homemade dessert (tiramisu, cheesecake). Plus croissants, bread, cheese, biscotti, marmelade, nutella, honey.... and of course, freshly made moccha coffee with foamed milk.
We recommend Fiorenza to everyone who's looking for a place to stay in Florence - even though it is not right in the old town, it's VERY easy to reach by bus (5min) or foot (20 to 30mins) and the nights are calm and you can sleep with your window open and listen to the crickets and frogs outside in Elena's pretty garden.

This B&B is wonderful from every point of view: a quiet location away from tourist crowds, a beautiful setting and breakfast, impeccable rooms, excellent wifi, and a charming host. Elena helped us with bus routes, finding a local doctor and a good restaurant, calling a taxi. It was a delight to meet her, and we will certainly return. We travelled as a family, but anyone would enjoy this lovely B & B.

Fiorenza B&B is a really nice family B&B on the less touristy side of Florence. There are nice restaurants and shops, more authentic and if you like you can reach the old centre by foot in 20 to 30 minutes. The host Elena is wonderful and warmhearted and provides helpful information for a visit in and around Florence. Our room was very nice and cosy and everything was quite clean. The breakfast was also very good and more than you would normally expect for an Italian breakfast. We definitely recommend to stay there!

We loved our stay at Fiorenza B&B. The property is conveniently located for taking public transportation. Elena provides a map, tips for travel and recommendations that are super helpful for getting around on your own. The rooms are spacious and clean, wireless worked well. There is a large, well kept garden in the back where our young son spent late afternoons playing after winding down from walking around everywhere. Elena, her family, as well as the ladies who are part of their staff, were very gracious hosts and went out of their way to add personal touches that made our stay so memorable. The property itself is located at the end of a quiet street and we got a great feel for what it would be like to live there (wishful thinking!). Our son even made a little friend during our stay. This is a great choice for singles, couples, or families and we would highly recommend to anyone. We'd love to be back!

We stayed two nights at Elanas B&B and it was great. Aside from the nice time at the B&B itself Elana gave us great recommendations for places to see and eat around the city. Each time we followed her recommendation we had great time. The only two times we didn't follow her advice we were disappointed. She recommended us the best icecream place we ate ever ten levels above the icecream places in the city center. The breakfast was delicious and the house itself is beautiful.

And a bonus parking near Elenas place is free.

I spent two wonderful nights at Fiorenza B&B on my first trip to Italy. What a way to begin my two-week journey! Traveling alone, I was hoping for a quiet, comfortable and restful place that was also close to seeing the sights on foot. What a great choice I made! Elena's Mom greeted me, the weary and warm traveler, with a glass of cold, freshly-squeezed orange juice. My room overlooked the beautiful and restful garden. I actually slept in the hammock for two hours after my 10+ hour flight. Elena gave me a map with great walking directions and restaurant recommendations. I actually opted for a bottle of wine and a take-out meal that I ate in the garden. Breakfasts were amazing both days and I found myself wishing I had more time to spend in this friendly, beautiful place. I walked to Boboli Gardens and across the river to see the Duomo, bell tower and all the other amazing sights and felt blessed at the end of a long day to have this cul-de-sac gem to return to for peace and quiet. Elena and her family truly open their home to their guests. When leaving, I vowed that I would return and spend more time in the future. When I got to my next stop near Siena, a yoga retreat, I compared notes with others in the group about their time in Florence. They all agreed that Fiorenza seemed by far the best place to stay. It is truly a beautiful and safe haven...close enough to all of the sights, but secluded enough to escape the heat and crowds of the city. It offers just the right combination of beauty, charm, peace, comfort, wonderful nourishment and warm hospitality. Whether you are journeying alone or with others, this place is not to be missed. Thank you, Elena! Sincerely, Helene from New Hampshire

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay here. The Fiorenza B&B offers all that one needs at a great price. Rooms are very comfortable, breakfasts are wonderful and freshly prepared, and the location is very convenient to getting to and from the heart of the city via bus or on foot. Of note, Elena, the innkeeper, was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction in all respects, and we really appreciated her insights into Florence's many amazing destinations. We look forward to returning here on our next trip!
