Leonardo House
Ranked #324 of 656 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

The location of Leonardo's is perfect! Out the door and into the hustle and bustle of florence streets. The rooms and bathrooms where clean and sufficient. Our stay was mildly affected by other patrons in noise and the bathrooms constantly occupied. There where signs up asking guests for quietness and to respect that the bathrooms where shared and Leonardo did his best to enforce this! Exceptional host, very friendly and helpful. Would happily stay again

This hostel had everything we needed for a few nights in Florence. The host was very friendly and the room and bathroom were clean. Breakfast is not included and there weren't any kitchen facilities, though there is a microwave, fridge and tea/coffee. It is located about 5 minutes walk to the train station and very close to the main sights of Florence which really makes it perfect. The room was basic but had everything we needed.

Great value and location. Very close to train station and within walking distance of major Florence sites. Leonardo was a wonderful host. Even with a full house the two bathrooms were sufficient and were very clean. We had rented bikes and with the roominess of the front entrance were able to lock them up safely and get an early start the next morning. The room was large with three beds (only two of us), so had plenty of room. Single beds were a bit narrow, but wouldn't think twice of staying again.

This guest house is a nice place to stay. Location is excellent. Just 2 minutes walking to the Duomo. You can walk everywhere in the city.
Leonardo is friendly and helpful. We are happy to have stayed in his place.

First of all, Leonardo House isn't really a hotel. It seems like some reviewers expected a more hotel-like experience.

To us it was perfect value for money. Fantastic location (near the train station, Duomo etc.), clean & big rooms, very friendly service and rock bottom pricing. Seriously, it's almost the price of a hostel dorm. So, I didn't expect a very luxurious experience. And it's not that, but a very functional accomodation. The rooms aren't that nice, but the cleanliness and space makes up for it.

We didn't think the place was hard to find at all, we actually found the place without a map once in Firenze. We had checked the location on google maps beforehand and the place was right where it was supposed to. Be wary with office hours though, like a real Italian Leonardo takes a siesta during the afternoon.

Overall it's a perfect option for someone looking for a budget accomodation. A special mention must go to Leonardo who is a very friendly and helpful guy. He also speaks excellent English so don't be scared if your Italian is a bit rusty.

The location was tops for me. Short walk from the train station and a few blocks from the Duomo!When you are dragging your suitcase along a road, location means alot. Centrally located it was a short walk from "everything". Leonardo was very helpful and kind. Rooms are spacious - decor not up to date but hey, price was right and bathrooms were CLEAN which means a lot. Good stay!
