Relais Grand Tour and Grand Tour Suites offers a non-hotel experience. Upon arrival, the sense is more of entering a home, which I believe the B&B was before conversion to taking guests. We were in the Actor Suite, a lovely, clean, well-appointed room on the ground floor. The two of us had sufficient room for our luggage, and appreciated the antique furnishings in the room. The location was superb - easy walking to every site in the historical center of Florence. It was clearly explained in the website and by other reviewers on TA that breakfasts are included in the price, but are taken at a local corner cafe. After experiencing this arrangement, I would have preferred being able to at least have coffee close to our room, and better yet, have a continental breakfast at the B&B. There apparently isn't the facility for this, but in retrospect, a small tray brought to the room with coffee, a small dish of fruit and a croissant would have greatly improved the quality of our stay. We were able to hear guests talking in the adjacent room, I think via the shared door, and when they came in late, talking and laughing, it was rather disruptive. We felt the room was a very good value, especially given the high cost of hotel rooms in Florence. There are pros and cons to staying in this B&B, but I feel the advantages of cost, location, and authenticity outweighed the few negatives.
