“A bit weird”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

The location is outstanding, within walking distance of anything you would want to see in this magic museum-city. And the staff are most friendly, which is remarkable in a place like Florence that crawls with tourists. Italians are just friendly people. The rooms themselves are very nicely furnished and the delicious breakfast made with care.
However, the staff were nowhere to be found when we arrived. We tried to call them but they didn't answer the phone. When at last they did, they were extremely apologetic, but still... The walls are made of cardboard, so you can almost follow live what happens in the room next to you and the place is infested with mosquitos which keep you awake at night.

Room Tip: Keep the windows closed !!

It was so hard to chose a hotel in Florence due to the situation/price/facilities etc but we settled on the Cavour 10 B+B due to it being where we wanted plus the rooms looked large and they advertised tea and coffee making facilities in the room. We just like to chill late afternoon with a cuppa before venturing out again in the evening to eat.
It was a little hard to locate and all the information we found on line didn't really help. Basically you need to find the Palazzo Medici Riccardi and the B+B is almost opposite. Another idea is to follow the road that runs between the Baptistry and the Duomo (with the Duomo in front of you go left) and it comes right to the street you need.
We had to wait for the owner to arrive at the B+B as it isn't open all the time- he was close by but glad it wasn't raining.
The room was all we expected and more with a wonderful large room with tons of space to unpack for our 4 day stay. The painted ceiling was enchanting and so Italian! Chairs and tables helped to make the hotel room a home for our short stay.
The ensuite bathroom was also large with a novel glass panel entrance- the pictures on the web site are very good. The only problem I could see were the mosquitoes buzzing around and we did have to keep our window closed for the whole stay-I still got bitten though! Take some before and after medication you'll need it.
Sadly, we couldn't find any cups or spoons to help us with our tea craving- we took our own tea bags so were ready to go but had to make do with small glasses and a toothbrush to stir in the sugar we found in the breakfast area. No milk either so we felt the tea and coffee making facilities should not be advertised if there weren't going to be any! We did mange to secure cups and spoons the next day but they were retrieved the day after so again we had to make do.
Breakfast was the normal thing with little variation apart from the omelette Lasty made. She was a great host and looked after us well.
There was a computer for internet access which was a great plus for us as we could keep in touch when needed.
The B+B was well situated for all you need to do and see in Florence. A bit expensive but then Florence is too so we felt we had a very good deal in the end.

Room Tip: The 2 rooms at the front may be noisier than the rear one but in all cases you may have to keep your...

We were booked into a partner B&B, Soggiorno Panerai, but on arrival the owners, Walter and Albena, told us that they had been trying to contact us to tell us that they were overbooked and had transferred us to Cavour 10. Although the message hadn't been passed on to us, it was no problem at all - Walter and Albena pulled out all of the stops once we arrived at Soggiorno Panerai and drove us the few blocks down to Cavour 10 (which is actually even closer to the Duomo - a perfect location). We were very touched with the care that Albena showed for us as tired and weary train travellers on the first night of our honeymoon. Cavour 10 was perfect for our short stay - a large room with a balcony right onto the bustling street, a beautiful fresco on the ceiling and interesting medieval stone carvings preserved behind a glass case. The bathroom was large and the bed comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was served by a wonderful lady whose name unfortunately we didn't register, but she was so hospitable and helpful, and the breakfast was so delicious, that we would certainly stay again for a longer duration.

Room Tip: The green room has a balcony overlooking the street

My family and I spent a couple of days at this accomodation in August and we left with nothing but an extremely plesant impression. The place is located right in the heart of Florence and all the sights worth visiting are easily approachable within walking distance. August may not be the right time of the year to visit Florence but B&B Cavour 10 was our perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the town. The rooms were really spacious and these high masterpiece ceilings were breathtaking. And the suprisingly modern Medieval interior was simply amazing. the furniture were incredibly stylish and well arraged. The breakfast was delicious and always served fresh looking tempting. The was was really polite and helpful and the owners - i can't think of another description but dedicated professionals. Their hospitality made us feel at home and have a whale of time. All in all B&B Cavour 10 has a great atmosphere. A visit to this place ia an experience to remember and perfect for a relaxed holiday with family and friends. I highly recommend it if you are heading for Florence.

The room was big and lovely, very clean and comfortable. The service and breakfast was fantastic. I will use them again if I'll be in Florence in the future. The B&B was near the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio, everything was a short walking distance.

Its our high school reunion (party of 7) and we are suppose to stay x 2 nights at B&B Soggiorno Panerai but when we arrived, we were told by staff that due to a toilet leaking problem we will be transferred to one of their nearby sister hotel- B&B Cavour 10. We were greeted by Walter and Luca and assisted with our luggages in the other hotel. The B&B hotel is much closer to the Duomo, Accademia and other point of interest in the area. Luca gave us detailed information of the hotel, places to visit, and places to eat. His recommendation for a pizzeria was fabulous (Pugi Pizza)....its delissssh! The rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated, the breakfast was good and the staff showed kindness and concern, we felt like we are an extended family of theirs. Their warm hospitality made our stay memorable and fun. I will definitely come back to this place and recommend it to my friends.

Stayed at this accommodation for 3 nights in Feb. We loved our room, spacious, comfortable, quiet, clean. The breakfast was good. The welcome from the owner and her general kindness and genuine concern to the enjoyment of our visit to Florence was a real bonus, and something we would not have gotten staying in a hotel. The location cannot really be beaten, right smack bang in the centre of things, a stones throw from Accademia and Duomo. We walked from the train station and this only took us 5 mins and with a map was easy enough to find.

We liked the bar across the road for a drink before dinner. Wine was only 3 euro a glass and with this you can help yourself to the free buffet food laid out on the table.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and I will be recommending it to any friends who ever decide to visit Florence.
