Today was a really tough day. It was hard to leave Verona. It was a pretty and relaxing B&B. The city was small, and we had a nice poolside to relax at our B&B. The night before, we went to a great restaurant called Dal Gal. I think I mentioned this already. HOwever, what I did not mention was what we ate there. What we had was a 5 dinner …
I'm thinking the Florentines' motto is "GO BIG OR GO HOME!", because it certainly looks like it! And maybe "IF YOU CAN'T GO OUT, YOU'VE GOT TO GO UP!" too. And the traffic is terrible! People walk in the middle of some of the streets, and if a car is coming towards you, you better move out of the way quickly because they might not slow down. It is …
After lunch we headed to Santa Maria Novella nearby. Its fašade of white and green marble dates from 1470. The interior is Gothic and full of light and geometric patterns on the walls and floor. Suspended at the transept is a beautiful painted crucifix by Giotto and on one wall is the famous fresco of the trinity painted by Masaccio which caused such a stir in its day because it was the first use of perspective and ...
... unacceptable yet you didn't communicate properly and now we have to wait 45 minutes... Uhhh what's the French word for Hypocrite? Anyways, enough of that. So we quickly realized we were sitting first class which was a small perk to lift our spirits after the ****** day we had had that far. Or maybe it was the complimentary Heineken that came with the first class seat? Who knows? So we landed, hopped off the plane, caught a cab to the our hotel, Hotel Bernini Palace. Along the way ...
The weather forecast was cloudy with showers today so the air was quite muggy. This morning I went on the free walking tour offered at the hostel. Normally free walking tours work on a tips basis, but this didn't happen to be one - which might have been a good thing. Compared to the other tours, this one seemed to lack energy, and for the first time in my life - I was one of the "ducks" following a bright pink random through the crowds. Perhaps this ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dei Mori Bed and Breakfast Florence
Loved Dei Mori
My husband and i spent two night at Dei Mori last october 2004. We tried to get a 3rd night, but they were sold out. The place was superb. The location was excellent. The rooms were immaculate and very comfortable. The bathroom was very big and clean. The decor was beautiful. Truely loved it and would definately stay here again. Most certainly recommend it.
Based on previous recomendations my wife and I stayed at Dei Mori while in Florence from Feb. 24-27. What a wonderful place to stay. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and offered excellent suggestions for sight seeing and dining. The rooms were clean and had enough room for us both. The location was perfect, only a 3 minute walk to the Ufizzi and Ponte Vecchio. I would stay at Dei Mori again without hesitation.
Hotel was in a superb location, very nicely decorated, well maintained and extremely friendly would definately stay there again.
Excellent welcome at Dei Mori......
Just returned from a 5 day stay in Dei Mori guesthouse, Florence, which I can highly recommend. The guesthouse is extremely central, small (5 rooms) but very welcoming. One of the owners, Peter, is a friend, but I can hand on heart say that if I'd found Dei Mori myself I would have been more than happy staying here. Florence is a beautiful city, which deserves much longer than we could give it - a perfect excuse to return in the not too distant future!! Make sure you visit Florence soon.....
A Nice Little B&B
Dei Mori was a great, affordable B&B, especially for it's stellar location right in the heart of Florence. The room was very simple but very clean and the in-room bathroom was miniscule, but the staff was exceedingly kind and helpful. The breakfasts were simple and provided only basic sustinance (they never changed over our entire 4-night stay). Be careful if you're a light sleeper -- the walls are paper-thin so you can hear every new visitor's whisper and every neighbor's sneeze. Definitely bring earplugs. Oh, and be prepared to hike up 3 flights of stairs to get to the hotel -- if you've got lots of heavy luggage, you have been warned! All said, though, Dei Mori was a good experience and I would recommend it.
Dei Mori - Wonderful Find!
I stumbled across the Dei Mori here and on Fodor's discussion groups. This was my favorite location while in Italy (we visited Rome, Verona, and Milan in March 2004.) It was by far the best value for my dollar and the most enjoyable experience.
Suzanne, our host, is an American who has lived in Italy for 7 years and was amazingly helpful (the owners were on vacation). She recommended great "off the beaten path" places to shop and wonderful restaurants.
The lack of elevator, size of room, and breakfast are typical for Italian hotels - nothing to write home about. BUT - the location is superb, the decor is charming, and Suzanne made us feel like we were totally at home. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone heading to Florence. The only negative I can really mention is that our hairdryer blew the fuse in our room on the high setting so we had frizzy hair.
Dei Mori is a wonderful, charming bed and breakfast I would absolutely stay at again on my next visit to Florence!
The best bed and breakfast
We stayed here recently with our children. The bed and breakfast is small, friendly and very comfortable. There was no traffic noise at all and the owner and the manager were both incredibly helpful and informative about Florence. Dei Mori is in the very best location - right between the Uffizi and the Duomo in the street where Dante lived.
We will be back and are now recommending it to all of our friends.
Centrally located to Florence's sights, this is a must-stay property!
The staff is quite helpful, and Susanna is right on the money when it comes to recommending great (and I mean GREAT!) restaurants within walking distance.
We felt very much at home despite it being our first visit to Italy!
Dei Mori is definitely on our list as the place to stay on our next visit to Florence!
The bells of the Duomo were our alarm clock...
..what a wonderful way to start the day in Florence. Dei Mori was a perfect place to stay! It was within walking distance to everything - minutes away from the Duomo. Our room shared a beautiful, large, clean bath with several other rooms, but we never had to wait. The staff was friendly and helpful. If I can return to Florence soon, I'd head directly to this bed and breakfast first.
A gem in the heart of Florence
I've stayed here numerous times, and in recent years they've added an extra wing. Superbly situated, gay friendly Dei Mori is owned and run by Daniele, with the help of Franco, Peter and Pepo the dog. Rooms are clean and reasonably sized. However, as with all centrally situated hotels, some rooms which overlook the street can be noisy beacuse of scooters. Top Italy tip - take earplugs! Breakfast of croissants and coffee served in the lounge. Great value accomodation, highly recommended.
