There was a mix-up in our original Florence reservation and, by a stroke of luck, we were referred to the SanGaggio House. It was a rainy afternoon and we just wanted to check into our accommodations - Flaminia welcomed us with open arms and perfect rooms - roomy, bright and well-appointed. She went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable - making hotel reservations, translating, booking tours and recommending some amazing Florence restaurants.
The breakfasts were sumptuous and it was great to enjoy our coffee in the beautiful garden.
Location was great for us - we could walk to the Ponte Vecchio and other points of interest and see the authentic Florence as we walked. Our four night stay was perfect.

Room Tip: The two rooms we used were good with excellent garden views.

It took me and my wife a while to find the right place among the variety of options. On one hand you want to be right in the middle of the action, on the other you want peace and silence away from the busiest places.
This place was absolutely perfect! It is a house which is in a beautiful residential area consisting of historical villas and houses.The view from the balcony was terrific, the whole Florence like on the plate. The interior of the room was immaculately clean and it was clear that it was made by someone who wanted to go a step further to make your stay to be remembered. The owner Flaminia is one of the most caring hosts that we have ever met. We learned the whole history of the building and received all recommendations for our stay. The area is a bit outside from the centre of the town but still walking distance from main tourist action. It is categorized as a B&B but if you came to town for tourist activities this is exactly what you need. Excellent value, personal touch and support, views that are hard to beat - truly recommend, will be back!

My wife and I along with our 6 months old boy stayed at San Gaggio House in July for 2 nights. We had a lovely stay. The hotel is cosy and has a beautiful Italian decor. Everywhere is newly decorated and clean. The hostess is a lovely lady who loved our son. She was always available and showed us all the nice places to go and the best restaurants to eat. Our room was on the garden level which meant we could enjoy the beautiful and well kept garden along with the lovely terrace. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice and have their own character.

How lucky we were to find Flaminia and her B and B. Tripadvisor did it again. We arrived early so the room had not been cleaned so the owner, Flaminia, made us comfortable in the lounge area with coffee and pastries. She gave us some good advice for tours the next day, made the reservations for us and then told us about two restaurants for dinner. Our room was sparkling and beautiful. Breakfast was delicious with her homemade croissants and other pastries, plus several other breakfast options. When it was time for us to leave, three days later, our host helped us contact our next destination. It was a perfect place to stay.....within walking distance of downtown and yummy restaurants. Our kind of place....what more can you ask for???

Our stay at the SanGaggio House was wonderful nothing was to much trouble to Flaminia.
she was a very helpful hostess. we will definitly return. The breakfast was a lovely start to each day, although on the down side we only had a few days stay, week would have been better but i think the children would have complained when we got home

My husband and I stayed here in August for a few nights, and I feel compelled to let Americans know about our stay. So many people have rated this B&B 5 stars, and I think that is overly generous. Granted Faminia was nowhere to be found and we were hosted by Lawrence, which may have attributed to the different experience. Lawrence was very nice and helpful providing directions and getting reservations, and his English sufficed although it was limited. The breakfast was very mediocre compared to what we are used to at other B&Bs. Although we were the only guests, Lawrence never asked what we preferred, so we ate very little. He provided a large buffet of the same items each day, so the pastries were more stale each day and there were fewer yogurt flavors to choose fromaccompanied by bad coffee and cheap packaged cold cuts. Part of the reason we stayed here was to enjoy the nice breakfast we'd read about in earlier reviews, so this was a big disappointment.
One of the most unexpected things about this inn was the distance to town. We had been told it was an easy 10-min. walk. We are healthy hikers, and we found that it took us 20 mins. to the edge of downtown and 30 mins. to the museums. The route from town to the B&B is completely uphill and includes one very steep hill upon which the inn sits. You can catch a taxi or bus, but it is not easy to take a break and go back to the B&B to rest or refresh. Also buying bus tickets and navigating the bus routes is an experience of its own. Lawrence told us we could buy bus tickets on the bus, but when we asked about this, other people looked at us like we were crazy. You actually need to buy tickets at a tabacco shop. Noone actually checks for your tickets on the bus, but we were told that police radomly board the buses to check. We did see a part of Florence that many people overlook since were so far out of town. We did not have a car, so one day - being tired of the bustling city - we set out through the countryside on foot and discovered Galileo's home, the observatory, and a couple of charming tiny roads and towns.
The B&B is very charming and our room was comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathroom was plain and simple, good size with a shower. We had a view from the bedroom of the hillside towards town and some of the neighboring houses. Our first night was absolutely miserable. We never could get the AC to work well, so it was stifflingly hot (August) the first night, and bearable the next two nights. In addition, someone had opened the windows prior to our arrival and let in dozens of big mosquitos. We finally killed all of them by the second night. My husband is allergic to mosquitos and had big welts on his body. The room had a little refrigerator that was cold enough to cool down our drinks and was stocked with some beverages and snacks. There was also a bottle of red wine available for purchase for a reasonable amount and some delicious tea (bags) available downstairs. The day we left Lawrence helped us with a cab and was kind enough to give us a bottle of red wine to take with us. I think others who are used to finer accommodations will be disappointed with the features I've mentioned above. Next time we definitely opt to stay closer to or in the center of town.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the hillside; the main floor rooms are nice if you have a lot of luggag...
