      Comfortable stay in the heart of Florence

      This B&B was perfect for our group of 4. As we requested, the room was furnished with 4 single beds. Double beds can also be provided when requested. The room for 4 was not too big and had enough space for us without being suffocating.

      Valeria, one of the owners, kindly confirmed our arrival time through emails. Although we were able to arrive within the prescribed check-in time, she would be able to accommodate late check-in time as well. She also helped us with bookings for Uffizi museum and Accademia gallery. Thanks to her, we were able to get the bookings for the times we wanted even though it was just 1 week away until our arrival in Florence.

      The room was clean enough. My friend who has dust allergy didn't have any problem during our stay. The electric sockets were plenty, however, be mindful that the sockets were the 3 prong model. slim 2 prong plugs can fit in no problem, but fat 2 prong plugs will not fit in. I didn't check with Domenico, the other owners who received us during our stay, but the B&B might be able to provide adapters. Just check with Valeria or Domenico before you arrive. Supposedly, the room wasn't to be cleaned while we were there but, to our surprise, the room was cleaned and tidied up every day we were there. We really appreciate the extra efforts to make us comfortable during the stay.

      The highlight of this B&B is its location. I don't deny that anywhere in the Florence is walking distance to anywhere you want to go within the city. The location of Cimatori that is almost exactly in the middle of the city makes it a convenient place to travel anywhere in the city. It's about 5 minutes walk to the duomo and less than that to Uffizi. We walked from the train station to the B&B. Don't be concerned with its location in a small alley. Actually, small alleys are the veins of the city. We had fun exploring the city by walking through the small alleys. Just ask Domenico or Valeria for a city map and have a good time in the city.

      Best location possible for B and B in Firenze

      from

      Enjoyed our brief stay. Location is perfect for exploring all of the sites. Directions to location very helpful. Welcome was warm. Helped with dinner reservations. Rooms large, private bath. Continental breakfast good. Would return and recommend to others.

      Very good

      from

      Ci siamo trovati veramente bene!

      La cortesia e la disponibilitÓ sono fra le doti migliori di questo b&b e nella persona di Domenico.

      Tutto Ŕ curato e ben tenuto,si ha la massima libertÓ di movimento e tanti piccoli accorgimenti che proverete anche voi se vi andrete a soggiornare.

      La posizione Ŕ centralissima e ben servita dagli autobus e nonostante tutto molto tranquilla.

      Lo consiglio vivamente!!

      The best accomodation in Firenze

      from

      Good place, good staff, good location (close by S.Maria del Fiore and Piazza della Signoria).

      I reccommend this location for your stay in Florence.

      Excellent!!!

      B&Bs better than hotels in historic Florence

      from

      I love Italy, and one of my favorite destinations is Florence. I've been to Florence a number of times, and I adore its compact historical center just filled with Renaissance art and churches and awesome shopping. I've discovered over the years that the best way to go is to stay in a bed and breakfast. Because Florence is such a small city center, most of the large hotels are actually located outside of the city walls. Staying in a bed and breakfast ensures that you will be right in the center of town in the middle of all the action, walking distance to all of the museums, restaurants and hotspots. Another added bonus is the small scale - in a large hotel, you may feel like just another anonymous tourist, but B&Bs typically have just a few rooms so you have more of a homelike atmosphere and more personal attention.

      One of my favorite B&Bs is called Cimatori Bed & Breakfast (-----------). It's located a block from Dante Alighieri's alleged birthplace right in the heart of old Florence. 2 minutes' walk from the Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery, 5 minutes from the train station, the statue of David and the church of Santa Croce, it just doesn't get any more central than this! It's also located literally above an American Express office that doubles as a travel agency, so you can cash traveler's cheques, exchange currency and buy train tickets right downstairs.

      Cimatori has I think only 7 or 8 rooms that have all been recently renovated and are sparkling new and excptionally clean. Each room has its own bathroom and shower, which is not necessarily standard overseas - I've stayed in many places where I had to use a communal bathroom in the hallway! There's a balcony that has a breahtaking view of the red-roofed dome of the cathedral and the lobby is a warm, communal room with comfortable couches and a library. The adorable owner Domenico along with the other staff provides you breakfast each morning in the adjoining breakfast room and they can give you advice on the many sites and help you make museum reservations or suggest a nice restaurant for dinner. It's so nice to have that personal touch when visiting Florence; there are just so many foreigners in town, and when staying at a B&B you feel more like a local and less like a tourist.

      I should note that Cimatori is located on one floor of a historic palazzo, but it happens to be the third floor up several flights of stairs. The staff will gladly help carry your luggage up the stairs, but if you have knee problems or if climbing up and down stairs will hinder your enjoyment of your vacation, one of the bigger hotels with elevator is probably more your speed. Other than that, I highly recommend Cimatori - it's a centrally located 4-star experience for a fraction of the cost of a fancy hotel!

      My Florence home

      from

      This was my second stay at the Cimatori. Great location, friendly and accommodating staff, very comfortable room. I am sure that I will stay here again my next visit. Excellent recommendation overall in terms of staff, location, room, and price. The breakfast is average for a B and B.

      Fantastic Accomodation & Hospitality

      from

      My wife and I stayed here during the summer this year for the second year running and can`t praise the accomodation or staff highly enough. Linda and Domenico (please forgive me if it is spelt wrong) made us feel like part of their family and it was a real wrench to say goodbye.

      The rooms are spacious, clean and welcoming. The bathroom was spotless and contained everything we needed.

      Domenico and Linda were a source of information on events, attractions, places to visit, history, restaurants and directions.

      In short we`ve never felt so home at any other accomodation in any city! And we`ve done a fair bit of travelling!

      Loved Cimatori Bed and Breakfast

      from

      Cimatori Bed and Breakfast is a perfect address for a pleasant stay in Firenze. You will be welcome by sympathetic people; rooms are very nice and located in the heart on Firenze, near by all the more important places to visit. Like us, you'll not regret your choice.

      Cimatori - Dante himself would be a customer

      from

      I have travelled to Florence on a few of occassions, and have stayed various spots central and on the fringes. Cimatori B&B however balanced both needs to be central in such a layered city with a high standard of accomodation and basic needs.

      The Cimatori has a definate character to its rooms which is typically italian. Most times I felt I was staying with friends sharing their home right in the heart of Florence city. It's facilities are well taken care of and for the traveller breakfast is about the only meal you will need at your room - the rest will be right out of your doorstep, with the Duomo at your back and the shopping precinct all around.

      I highly reccommend this location for your stay in Florence. Four stars.

      Absoultely top class!!!

      from

      My wife and I were a little nervous at staying here as we`d not seen any reviews but on arriving and being greeted by the guy (sorry but we`ve forgotten his name) we knew immediately we`d found a gem. The guy was so helpful it was unreal. The room was spotless and well laid out. The bathroom was brand spanking new and everything worked a treat. The walk up a few flights of steps wasn`t a problem either and the location near all the main attractions couldn`t have been better When we go bakc to Florence we`ll be trying to book the Cimatori Guest House first. We can recommend it to everyone!!! Absoultely top class!!!

      ... One of the cars that we saw was like the little-yellow-Italian-mechanic-three-wh eeled-cars from the movie Cars. We wondered the streets of Florence with no destination in mind and the map put away in our bags. We found many interesting things: white human like statues with animal heads, shops, restaurants, churches, and buildings. We ended up crossing the river on the Old Bridge, the only bridge to survive WWII and feels more like a ...

      Our first afternoon began with lunch at the market (Mercato Centrale) and then finding our way around and making plans for the next two days. Late afternoon we climbed the hill to Piazzale Michelangelo to watch the sunset over the city.

      We had read that in the busy season people have been known to queue ...

But now, wherever we go, she points out houses and says things like: "such-and-such lives there, she is married to such-and-such, its so sad . . . " Who knew? It's like they don't even need fb! Cynicism, aside, it was lots of fun and precisely the reason to travel. A really unique village experience that was so natural, so inclusive and so enjoyable.
