    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!

    from

    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.

Everyone was standing up and singing and swaying with us; I could barely sing because I was laughing so much. The rest of the night consisted of singing, dancing and drinking. One of the girls left cos she was throwing up so me and cam thought we would go with her to make sure she got home safely. We got into a taxi and ...

    Hello All!

    Today my Second World War class took a trip to the American National Cemetery in Florence.The half hour bus trip took us through the hills of Tuscany, finally arriving at the cemetery. The cemetery has 4,000 headstones, some with names and some without names. All of the soldiers buried here were killed in the campaign to liberate northern Italy in late 1944 and 1945. Many of these soldiers were killed just weeks before the end of ...

    Visit to Basilica di Santa Croce, Florence

    ... wanted him buried in the Basilica of Santa Croce. However Pope Urban VIII and his nephew Cardinal Barberini refused, and they buried him in a small room in a novice's chapel at the end of a corridor. In 1737 he was reburied with his new monument in the main part of the Basilica and it is beautiful. Interestingly, when his body was moved, some teeth and a finger were removed (!) and his middle finger (!) is currently on display in a museum in Florence (which we ...

    Taking the Uffizi Gallery we got to Piazza della Signoria. My parents had told me how beautiful was it, a museum in the street, they said. It really is, but we were so unlucky that started raining just when we arrived there... We stayed in ...

    Overall, Brown’s rather dramatic descriptions of this city had me in a state of total anticipation which was regularly disappointed. Admittedly, as I was not being chased by a shadowy organisation who may or may not have wanted to kill me, perhaps the lack of adrenalin took the edge of the whole experience, but I must say, visiting Florence through a Dan Brown novel was fun and instilled me with a rather serious sense of purpose for a couple of ...
