Reviewed 17 August 2012

This review is long overdue! We found the place by accident and can't thank enough the ebookers.com for staying at this gem! The hotel is secluded from the center of the city, however is a short taxi or bus ride there. The service was beyond exceptional: we got a recommendation for a dinner to a restaurant nearby, existing for over 50 years. The meal was so outstandingly good, we had to go back, and I mean to the outskirts of the city, for a second dinner a day later.

What really put Ape Rosa above and beyond many of the hotels our there is the ambience: you feel like you belong to the city, by taking a room in the villa.

Moreover, I forgot a shirt at the place. 2 weeks later it was mailed back to me! Amazing!

Highly recommend if you are interested in a quiet place in the night and have a car or don't mind some commute to the city.

Off the beaten path but so beautiful that it is worth it. If you want to stay somewhere that feels 'real' and not generic I highly recommend it. Taking the #4 bus was easy although we often at end of day preferred taxi. Breakfast was lovely as we the owners.

Room Tip: we had two rooms Room # 1 was stunning! Our other room upstairs second floor was quite nice as well...

The villa Ape Rosa is a special location in Florence! A family-owned house, with a lovely/graceful interior and exterior. Parking within the estate, your can easily reach downtown in approx. 15 min by bus #4. The stay was an important puzzlestone of our awesome Rom/Tuscany trip, thanks to Elena & team

We are a group of 11 adults and 1 child. We were lucky to find Ape Rosa B&B that could fit our group. It was nice as we had a large living room to hang out after a day of sightseeing and shopping.

The team at Ape Rosa made our enjoy enjoyable. They answered all our questions right from before we arrived to during our stay.

The location is fantastic as it is only a 10 mins bus ride from the city.

I would strongly recommend this place.

We have been travelling through Tuscany for three weeks and Florenz was definitely a highlight. Not only because of the city, but also because of our lovely host and home at Ape Rosa. If you enjoy beautiful furniture and the love for details, a feeling of home, classic music during breakfast on the terrace and a caring host who tries to make everything possible – then its a place for you.

Thank you Paolo,

My family (of four adults) stayed here this June and loved it. The room was nice, the hosts were extremely helpful and friendly, the huge backyard is beautiful, breakfast was charming, and the location was great because it was a short (10-15 minute) bus ride to the city center but in a nice, residential part of Florence that was a short drive to Fiesole, a beautiful hilltop town just north of Florence with cool air and great views of Florence. Additionally, they were accommodating of our arrival even though we were delayed until 2 am, and there was free off-street parking.
