Historical Traveler Reviews Alloro B&B Florence
Davvero molto accogliente!!!!!
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
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!
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!
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
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 !!!!
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.
Small, comfy, and close to everything!
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....
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
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!
Between Duomo and Santa Maria Novella
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.

... 300 kph! On Italo Treno - am thinking this train should have seat belts and the tray tables should be in the upright position, with exits..... here, here and here! The train is privately operated by NTV which I think stands for Nuovo Transporto Viagraiatori (not sure about the Viagra bit - as the trains weren't pale blue!)
I thought that having a pee at 300 kph would have presented logistical difficulties, but - quite ...
We started and finished our last day in Florence with museums. Lots and lots of museums. It was a bunch of art museums and we gotta see the statue of David which was super cool. However we were not aloud to take pictures, but it was still cool to see the statue in person. We then went to so other art museums and saw some pretty cool stuff. Another thing we did today was went to walk ...
... They were unfinished statues by Michelangelo. Only parts of each man were completed, so it looked as if they were bursting out of the blocks of marble. It was really beautiful. Going through the museum and seeing so many pieces by Michelangelo also felt like my trip was coming full circle. I learned so much about him on my tour through the Vatican museums that I had more of a backstory. It was great being in the city he considered home and seeing his work. ...
... to see The David. He is so much bigger than I ever realized. The detail in his hands and feet are incredible. You are not supposed to take pictures but I was able to take one with my phone quickly before getting fussed at. You can see the face of the security guard in the bottom left of my photo. Funny! We walked past the Duomo on our way to lunch. ...
Florence is a city I am proud to be a returning traveler. The charm of the quaint streets and shops, and the smell of the fresh leather, clearly captivated my innermost travel urges and prodded me to revisit this Italian dream of all things memorable.
When you arrive in Florence, you are greeted with the beauty of the architecture: The Duomo, Giotto's Bell Tower, gold bridge and Santa Croce Church homing ...
