    Historical Traveler Reviews Home in Florence B&B

    Excellent value, good location


    Can only confirm what others are saying on this - clean and excellent value for money. Location was for me a big plus - just nicely away from the main sights in an old area that still seems to be mainly residential (and with the side benefit of excellent local restaurants, cafes, tabacci, etc. at very reasonable - for Florence - prices) but still within comfortable walking distance of everything.

    A real gem!


    We highly recommend B&B in florence......

    Rooms are extremly clean, comfortable and Cheap. Great Location away from the hoards of tourists, but its still only a short walk to all the attractions. Great local restaurant and bars in piazza nearby. There was free internet and the quirky owner paolo is friendly and helpful. Probably the best place we stay in 4 and half months of travelling in europe.

    Home Run All The Time


    This is my second return to these guys. The apartments they offer are always immaculately clean, and they are located in prime areas of the Center of Florence. If I never see another hotel room again in Florence that is just fine with me. If you have never been to Florence, you MUST GO NOW and make sure you reach out to these guys. Their prices are more than reasonable and they make Florence affordable.

    Highly Recommend Florence B & B


    Really enjoyed my stay at B&B of Florence. The staff was quite helpful and very nice. I was on my first trip to Florence and I was doing it Solo. The staff was very helpful and put me at ease. Even waited for me to arrive, as the office closes in the early afternoon, as is local custom. Enjoyed being in the San Spirito area. Many nice people, and not nearly as crowded as being in the tourist areas.

    My room was quite spacious and clean. It had a refrigerator, and cable TV. There were 2 computers at the guests disposal, which were handy for checking in at home.

    Opted not to include vouchers for breakfast, as there were numerous nearby Tobbac, cafes, and grocery markets that I could stop and purchase coffee, rolls or a larger breakfast. Eating on that side of the Arno was much less expensive as the meals I had in the city. The refrigerator was quite useful.

    Did suggest to the staff that a coffee pot for that first cup of coffee while getting dressed would be a nice addition to the room.

    Appreciated their recommendations for restuarants, too.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Home in Florence


    Dear Mr. Massimilliano,

    We really enjoyed our stay at Home in Florence as the service was excellent

    - good clean room with air-conditioning, internet service and above all your

    kind hospitality.

    It was nice of you to help us in sight seeing and with all the information

    we needed.

    My two sons and myself were happy to meet you.

    We wish "Home in Florence" all the success, and would recommend it to our

    friends in case they visit Florence.

    Thanking you for your kind concern regarding all our needs.

    Yours sincerely,

    Romualdo Fernandes

    B and B in Florence is a great place to stay


    The accommodation was excellent. Great access to the city in a nice neighbourhood. The room was very spacious and nicely appointed. Our host was pleasant and very helpful. The San Spirito district is a well protected secret and well worth checking out.

    The only problem with this establishment was the "breakfast". We were provided with a voucher for breakfast at a near by coffee shop and the owner of the shop was not that thrilled with the business. A spot for breakfast at the residence would be very welcome.

    All in all, this was an exceptional stay and great value for money. I also recommend not driving Florence. The streets are hard to navigate and parking is not very plentiful. We walked everywhere easily.

    Would Stay Again - Great Place


    We spent 3 weeks traveling in France and Italy and stayed at 4 different hotels. This was the least expensive and the best. We opted for the room only price as we wanted to try different places in the city for breakfast. So at 83 euros a night, it was a real bargain. The manager, Massimiliano, speaks very good English. He was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, air conditioned and spacious. The bathroom was also spacious, even if the shower stall was rather small (we found all the showers were small everywhere we stayed). Two desktop computers and free internet service is available for guests...a real nice perk!!!

    A really lovely stay


    We had a really lovely stay - we had a wonderful

    time in Florence, and were delighted with the room and the welcome, and the

    courteous helpful service they gave us. The B&B is a real gem, and I'll

    certainly be returning next time I visit Florence; it was a perfect situation

    for me - away from the tourist crowds yet in easy reach of everything, and

    Oltrarno has a special atmosphere.

    Wonderfull Stay


    After many disappointing experiences at other hostels and cheap hotels, we were delighted to arrive at the B&B (also called At Home in Florence). Beautiful rooms, free internet, and a very friendly staff. The neighborhood was cute and out of the way of the throngs of tourists that flood Florence (it took about 10 minutes to walk to the center of the tourist stuff), but near many Tabacci's and a laundry mat. This was definitely the best place we have stayed in Europe after 9 weeks of travel.

    Excellent value for money


    This is an excellent value for money option in pricey Florence. This is a bed and breakfast 5 minutes walk from Ponte Vecchio, south of the river. It is in a quiet street with great restaurants around full of Italians rather than tourists.

    The rooms are basic but comfortable with air conditioning. We did a room only option (as there are so many places to have breakfast) and our double room was 80 Euros a night.

    If you normally stay in one or two star pensiones you will love this place.

    Down a corridor

    We started the day with a four hour tour. There were only six of us in the group so it was great. You could hear Catarina, the guide, and ask questions easily and get to know the other participants. We skipped the already long line at the Uffizi Gallery and instead of the long climb up two stories of stairs we were taken to the top in an elevator. …

    Holding up the Tower

    We caught a first class train from Levanto to Pisa. Nice change. Worth booking first class if you can. We booked our luggage into the "left luggage" room at Pisa and asked a taxi driver how much to go to the Tower of Pisa. 9 Euro. That or a 30 minute walk in the midday sun? Took the taxi and arrived within minutes. The meter showed 5:65, he pushed …

    ... one of the corniest writers, and at times, also way too honest. I've accepted it, it's just who I am and I'm not interested in putting on a typical "21-year old college girl" facade. Though I'm definitely still looking forward to finally celebrating my 21st birthday on Mill and in Old Town, Scottsdale when I get back to Arizona ;). Yeah, I'm corny, but I haven't forgotten how to have fun :). I think too much, I write too much, YOLO, my life is neat.

    Man! They really like to ring those big bells! 7am to start the day, a big show at 7:30 to make sure you are up, then back to the usual at 8. Getting used to it now. Don't even hear the :30 ring. Noon is the biggest with different size bells creating a cascade effect. San Gimignano is really clean and healthy looking for its age. The bus stop was right outside the entrance to the town so we got there a little ...

    ... sheltering under the post card van along with a dozen other people. It was very scary. The rain and hail were so heavy that we found it hard to see and breath. There was stuff flying around in the air. The museum eventually opened their doors again and we ran for cover. The museum was in caos - lots of drenched tourists packed into a small area. We were covered in **** that had come off the roofs and ...
