      Historical Traveler Reviews Alloro B&B Florence

      Davvero molto accogliente!!!!!

      from

      Sono rimasta molto colpita č stata un ottima esperienza, ero molto curiosa di vedere com'era dato che era la prima volta che soggiornavo in un B&B e ne sono rimasta piacevolmente stupita. VERY VERY GOOD!!!!!!!!!

      An oasis in the center of Florence

      from

      Alloro is one of the best b&b I ever stayed at. Highly recomend for anyone traveling to Florence.

      Location is great - 5 mins walk from central railway station and 5-7 min walk to Duomo and cathedral. Galleria Academia and Uffizi are about 10-15 min walk. There is also an excellent fruits/vegetables market near by. There are also good options for food around. And there is a supermarket around the corner.

      The rooms are simply gorgeous. We traveled with our friends so I can tell you that rooms 54 and 55 are excellent. Beautiful design, very spacious. Beds are big and comfortable. Bathrooms are huge with bathtubs. All bath accessories are provided. Rooms have air conditioning and it actually works very well!!!! (comparing with the b&b we are currently staying in Rome). There is an electric teapot and a fridge. Breakfast is served in the room. You have a choice of chocolate, tea or capuchino. It comes with croissants, pate, home made yougurt, bread buns. B&b is on the 2nd floor and there is a lift!

      We stayed for 3 nights and I think we liked Florence a lot not the least because of a pleasant stay at Alloro. Thank you, Cristian!

      Fabulous B&B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      from

      After reading the great reviews about the Alloro Bed & Breakfast on TripAdvisor, we decided to stay there for 6 nights during our honeymoon in Florence last month. This was the best decision! The Alloro B&B was BETTER than we expected. The room was really big and very clean and so was the bathroom. It was also uniquely decorated with a painting on the ceiling! The owner and his son took great care of us during our stay. They greeted us with a map and some great recommendations for local restaurants which were all great -- especially La Spada. They brought breakfast to our room every morning -- juice, milk, coffee, bread/croissants, cheese and jam. The location is great -- only a short walk from the train staion. There are many great restaurants and gellaterias right outside the doors of this B&B. We only paid 110 euros per night -- which was much less than you would spend on a 4 or 5 star hotel in the area but you wouldn't get the coziness and truly unique experience of this B&B. We would stay here without hesitation on our next trip to Florence.

      Some tips for Florence: Make reservations before leaving home for the Academia and the Uffizi. Academia was really small and the only real item of interest was the statue of David. While in Florence, we took a great wine tour of Tuscany with Todd (www.tuscantrails.com) who is an American living in Italy. We visited 2 wineries, tasted olive oil and wine, saw the most besutiful scenery and had an amazing lunch in Chianti. This experience was worth every penny! We also did a wine & cooking tour with the Accidental Tourist (www.accidentaltourist.com) that was also great. We went to a winery, tasted oilve oil and then went on to a house where we learned how to make pasta and ravioli from scratch. Then the woman who lives in the house cooked our pasta nd made a delicious lunch. Both were amazing experiences and highlights of our trip!

      Great place!

      Was very happy with Alloro! The room was large and very comfortable. The location was perfect..very near the train station and the San Lorenzo market and the staff was extremely helpful!! Also, the breakfast was great!

      Breakfast in the sun

      from

      We spent here 5 days in May 2006 and we loved it. We had the room with a balcony and every morning we had our perfect breakfast in the sun. It was more than we expected.

      Not only the people, the breakfast, the sun, the spacious room and a good bed, but also the location of this B&B is perfect. I will recommand it to everyone I know that is visiting Firenze. I also hope to visit it again myself. Mille grazie and arreverderci from Corina and Arianne from Holland.

      Ottimo!!!! Hotel ALLORO super consigliato !!!!

      from

      In pieno centro cittā, a pochi passi dalla stazione di S. Maria Novella e a meno di 5 minuti dal Duomo.

      Camera bellissima e servizio eccellente.

      Gestori cordiali e simpatici.

      CONSIGLIATO !!!!

      Small, comfy, and close to everything!

      from

      This B and B, on the 3rd floor of a city building in Florence, was everything we were hoping for. It was small (only a few rooms) but the room was huge, clean, and charmingly Florintine (we had paintings on our ceiling). They served breakfast to us in our room, which was really nice. We had a balcony (not a great view but the breeze was nice) and the B and B was about 2 blocks from the central train station, the Duomo, etc. Great location, service, and rooms for the price!

      How to stay in a very comfortable past....

      from

      How to stay in a beautiful antique palace of Florence with the maximum comfort... I was in this lovely b&B for one nigth for a romantic trip. Absolutely appreciated room, large and comfortable, marble bathrooms, elegant furniture. Very quiet, we slept like babies and in the morning, breakfast in the room with no extra charge with home made yogurth, not so easy to find in the heart of Florence! Definitely a beautiful experience, at a reasonable price. To be repeated as soon as possible

      BEAUTIFUL B&B - Highly Recommend

      from

      We were travelling around Europe for 6 weeks and this was without a doubt the best place we stayed in. The rooms were large and appeared newly renovated. It was immaculately clean and the owners were friendly and helpful, lovely and fresh continental breakfast. Great location between the station and the Duomo. Everything was in walking distance. I will definitely return!

      A lovely room in central Florence

      We stayed in Alloro B&B in February 2006. The room was beautiful, the bathroom the nicest we'd found in Italy- with good towels and soaps etc and a big bath. Everything was kept very clean.The owners were unobtrusive but friendly. It was central and very good value.It doesn't have a view but you can hear the bells of the Duomo and despite being close to the Railway station it is not noisy. It was like having one's own appartment in Florence. We highly recommend it and intend to return.

I then scrambled to find a place, but it was so hard because there were so many options and I really wanted it to be special, given it was my last stay. At this point I had been looking at these hotels for day and finally made a decision, hoping it was the right one. So I booked my stay at ...

A plaster mold is then fabricated using the finished clay sculpture. Then a plaster “copy” is made from the mold. The plaster copy may be full size or a smaller scale model. Pins are inserted in critical measurement points of the plaster mold which creates series of small holes ...

When they subsequently ran out of money to finance the project, the building remained unfinished until the Medici bought it and moved in during the mid-1500s, when they decided to retain the name. Today, it houses several museums, among them the Palatine Gallery, which has a collection ...

      ... given up on these first two major options we wandered on admiring the beautiful architecture of the buildings and were rewarded with a close up of a reproduction, but same size, of David, which stands where the original once stood. The original was removed to its new home in the university because it was becoming damaged from being out in the open. I could still appreciate the beauty of this work even though it wasn’t the original. ...

      ... we may as well keep looking.
      We eventually came to a street a fair way down on the left. We saw 'pizzeria' down the side of a building, so we stream lined! We got there and looked at the menu. Every single pizza was 5 euros!!! Cheap as!
      We figured - yeah this will do! Especially after our big expenses in Pisa.
      We ordered a pizza and side of fries to share. We went downstairs and it was much cooler down there! We sat down and waited for our food. It wasn't long ...
