“Excellent location, perfect room with a view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2011

We stayed here because it was recommended by another B&B where we had stayed previously but was booked. Very pleased, the location was excellent very close to the Duomo and we had a very nice room with a balcony. The bathroom was larger than other B&B's we had stayed in. The rooms was spotless and breakfast was simple but adequate for us. Our host was very pleasant and helpful. We would definitely go back, we were surprised at how quiet it was even though it faced a busy street.

We spent three nights at Il Salotto di Firenze in early May and had a fanatstic stay.

The location of the accommodation is its real selling point - literally in the middle of Florence, right by the Duomo. Our room had a balcony that fronted onto Via Roma with a view across into Piazza del Duomo. We had some pre-stay concerns about street noise but these were ill-founded as the room was extremely well sound-proofed.

The room we had was very clean, really comfortable and had a good quality feel. The buffet breakfast was good with the owner on hand to provide recommendations, answer questions, etc. The level of service provided by Alessandro before and during the stay was excellent.

Overall we were really, really happy with our choice. Being so central in the city centre was fantastic for breaking each day up into smaller chunks and taking time to relax in the room / on the balcony.

The rate was paid was the highest during our two weeks in Italy but we felt that it represented very good value given the location, service and higher rates at comparable B&Bs.

Highly recommended!

I cancelled a reservation at another B&B when I found out the Giovanni Fattori room was available during the dates we needed. We booked the honeymoon package from Oct 20-23. We were late into Pisa and still had to catch the train. I sent them a quick e-mail and they responded right away saying they would be there waiting for us. Alessandro also texted me to say they would be there. Guido was there and he was a huge help to us since this was our first time in Florence. He gave us a map and pointed out all of the places he likes to eat around the hotel...including the best gelato place we found...across the river - Gelateria la Carraia. His advice was invaluable. The room was clean, the bathroom was huge (compared to all of the other places we stayed) and the balcony was amazing...we would definitely stay in that room again. Everything was very modern and it was only one floor up - with a lift!!! It was like heaven! You are right by the Duomo so the bells will likely wake you up...but we didn't have to set an alarm! Breakfast each morning was lovely, the standard for Italy with meats, cheeses, breads...but they also had bread and a toaster plus some pastries and fresh juices. Guido rushed into the kitchen to make us cappuccinos which were delicious and we had a nice chat about what we had done and where we were going. It was a very friendly and welcoming environment and someday when we go back to Florence we will stay there again!

Yes, the B&B is lovely and yes, the location can not be beat, but what really made me love our time in Florence was the warmth of the staff. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we could tell that they genuinely wanted us to have a marvelous visit to Florence. We also loved the people watching outside of our window! Although at night you had to shut your windows to shut out the noise.

This B&B's location is steps away from the Duomo and equidistant to many of the sites of Florence making it convenient for travelers. Not only the location is 5-stars, but Alessandro, the owner, is extremely helpful and determined to make your stay unforgettable. It's a clean, updated, small B&B. The service,value, location and cleanliness are top notch. We were located in one of the rooms overlooking Via Roma and tended to get a bit noisy some nights with late night revelers, but it did not interfere with our trip. We would go back again.

Il Salotto di Florenze is an absolute gem! It is a beaufiful bed and breakfast just steps away from the Duomo in the heart of Florence. It is completely redone and very up to date. Alessandro, the owner, is extremely helpful and accommodating. When we misplaced our keys, he left what he was doing and came immediately with replacement keys. The price is very reasonable and the room and bath are far larger than any hotel. I would stay there again, but when word gets out about this place, I am sure it will be booked far in advance.

The location of Il Salotto Di Firenze is absolutely the best possible.
Our room was clean, stylish and spacious, loved the high ceiling. Service was friendly and the breakfast, while very basic, was just right for us.
If you expect a 5* hotel with all the services, this might not be the best choice.
If you're looking for nice rooms and great value with unbeatable location and feel to the city, I would recommend Il Salotto.
