    Historical Traveler Reviews Home in Florence B&B

    Excellent value, good location

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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. …

    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 …

    ... I don’t think we saw more than half of what was there. After all that time we bought 1 bottle of sweet Vermouth, a gigantic fresh Porcini mushroom, some beautifully red cherry tomatoes and some nice lemons and that’s it. That said I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun in a “grocery store”.

    We walked over to dinner later in a direction nearly due east from our apartment. East is towards the hills and the residential areas ...

    Duomo, cathedral, museum, shopping etc

    ... which is great for travelling around with maps, phone and camera.

    Then I got further distracted by the Baptistery. I knew the ticket for the Duomo let me into a few places, and this was one of them. I am so glad that I didn't miss it. My pamphlet says "the sumptuous mosaics of the dome reveal the influence of the Byzantine art in central Italy'. Not sure about that, I would just say "wow" again! Check out the pics of that.

    Arrival in Florence and a walk near the hotel

    ... are incredible, giants with perfect scale and completely imposing. The sculptures are outside, free for the public to roam around, but with signs up to respect the outdoor museum and several police nearby.

    Dinner was at a small place called the Hosteria il Desco, where we had carpaccio, risotto, and each had a different preparation of wild boar. Incredible. ...
