"Great location, Good price, No fuss"
Antiche Armonie is a short 5 minute walk to the Florence SMN station, from which it is possible to walk to all the different sights of Florence and tourist information. It was close enough yet was in a quiet neighbourhood away from the noise on the streets when we needed to catch some good rest. Alessio was a hospitable host who briefed us on directions […] to the sights and places for food. The price was great too. This B&B offered way better service, and rooms, and comfort than more expensive hotels on messy streets. I will definitely recommend Antiche Armonie to others who wish to visit Florence.

L'hôtel est a vingt min a pied du centre ville, dix minutes a pied de la gare piazza novella. Quelques bus emmènent a la gare. Le gérant Matteo facilite le séjour ce qui est appréciable si l'agenda est chargé! L'hôtel est pratique et bien situé pour un weekend. La sdb est propre et les serviettes fournies. Attention aux moustiques qui prennent position […] depuis lascenseur jusqu'à ce qu'il s'écrasent sur les rideaux... Petit bémol toutefois: le breakfast très très sommaire. Déposé dans la chambre la veille, 2 biscottes et un croissant industriel par pers et un verre de café a la machine ds le couloir. Pas très convivial...ni consistant! Ce n'est pas un b&b classique chez l'habitant .dommage Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"really lovely break here"

It is a little tricky to find and a bit of an unusual set-up (for a British tourist anyway) but this place oozed charm. It is a tranquil haven amongst the busy tourist-laden Florence. The cleanliness was exceptional as was the service. It was excellent value for money, especially considering the location and quality of the room. My only comments would be that it can be a little noisey in the morning which I think is due to the traditional Italian decor of no carpets as the sounds echo quite a lot. Apart from that, a great time was had.

We originally booked a different place to stay in Florence, however reading the tripadvisor reviews on this place we changed our booking and definitely do not regret it. I loved this B&B, it reminded me of a home away from home, simple and tastefully decorated, very clean and comfortable. The owners were extremely pleasant and very helpful with all our needs. The establishment is about a 15-20 minute walk from the train station with heavy backpacks and is a little bit hard to find if you lose the instructions the B&B send you on booking the accommodation (which was our fault)! There is an absolutely fabulous doner shop about 5-10 minute walk away (away from city centre) called Il Farone - nothing posh at all but extremely yummy with great service! The breakfast we received was not the best and could do with an improvement, however this should not deter you from staying in this wonderful establishment that is very reasonable for Florence accommodation.

We spent 1 night here before we flew back from a 3 week vacation in Switzerland and Italy. The room and spacious and clean. We had one with 2 twin beds. It was a little hard for us to find. I think if you have much luggage, you should take a cab. We only had 1 small suitcase each, but you definitely have to roll it 10-15 minutes or more. We had to stop several times to ask if we were going in the correct direction. The reviews of the breakfast is correct. It is packaged items if rolls, juice, cookies, tea, etc. They have a coffee machine in the hallway and some bottled items you can buy in the small room refrigerator. Ours wasn't even cold or either not working. Our room was along a very busy and noisy street. The ac didn't work and we couldn't get a hold of the owners to help us, so we had to open the window to sleep which was terribly loud and then the room was full of mosquitos so we had to close it and be hot. It doesn't seem like this was everyone's situation, but it was a long and difficult night for us and we had to get up early to catch our plane. Then the cab driver charged us $10 more than the quote. He said 5 extra for calling him and then 5 more for putting our luggage in his cab plus 20 to the airport. You can see why we have mixed feelings about it.

Staying at your hotel was absolutely wonderful: it will help remembering the gorgeousness of Florence, even though it is unforgettable anyway! We will surely come and stay at this place again! Thanks a lot!

Good price, easy location to train and buses (10 mins walk), owner was very helpful and nothing too much trouble. Spacious rooms, very clean, only let down was the breakfast... perhaps fruit and yoghurt would be good addition? Although on a busy road was quiet as good sound proofing with windows. Excellent value for money! Would recommend and stay again if coming to Florence.

Average at best. Ten minutes walk from the old city, situated on a busy Main Street with zero parking. Biggest letdown was breakfast, or lack there off. Consisting of a plastic wrapped croissant, biscuit, tea bag and........ nope that's it! Whoops, I forgot the 50c tocken for a machine coffee. If your looking for something nice, I would genuinely keep looking..
"Only Bed, Not what you call Breakfast"

The rooms are clean and nice... They are slightly small, cosy though.. .. but thats okay considering sizes of rooms in touristy european cities.... I am forced to call this a poor expereince... Cos the breakfast was a big big downer.... When travelling, you want the breakfast to be good ( with hot options)..cos the day is hectic and you don;t know when you would stop for lunch... The inkeeper left the breakfast in room the previous night..which comprised of a tetrapack juice, milk, cofee/tea sachets and a croissant!! The location is away from the old square but i wont blame anyone else other than myself for choosing the location.. I always had great experiences at B&B's but this wasn't the case. I got carried away by the charming pictures and great reviews I read there. By the way I travlled in 2009... But rating it now... Go here if you are not the breakfast type.
"Wonderful place to stay!"
Our host Matteo was very helpful, taking the time to show us where to go and make restaurant recommendations, even lending us his own guide books. The rooms were clean and spacious and the beds were comfy. Really excellent value for money!
"Clean but not great"

Don't be surprised when you are taken through the back streets of Florence, past the back end of the station and down a side road to reach Antiche Armonie, which is situated on the fourth floor of what looks like a warehouse and is in fact a block of apartments that seems not to have been updated since the 70s. There is a tiny lift, so groups of travellers will need to take a few trips with their luggage to reach the B&B, which smells of cigarette smoke as you enter. The rooms are clean and have all the essentials - comfortable bed, cupboard space and modern bathroom with tiny shower. The major downsides are that breakfasts are prepackaged and dropped off in your room the day before, when the room is made up. The breakfast consists of prepackaged croissant, prepackaged melba toast, warm boxed fruit juice and condiments. Average coffee is to be fetched from the very noisy coffee machine down the hall - "one cup per person per day". Situated as it is, guests at the B&B are woken up by heavy traffic and noise from the station right outside the window, or alternatively noisy neighbours in the rest of the building. It is a fair walk to the station and further to the old town, which is really where the charm of Florence lies. On the upside, the owner was very helpful when we arrived, marking out in detail the areas we should visit and suggested restuarants on a map for us. All in all, the B&B had everything we needed but wouldn't warrant a return visit for location or luxury. Just down the road was a hostel and it almost seemed that this was what the B&B should rather call itself.
"All in all... not bad, but not great."

The strengths of this hotel are: The very kind owners; Stylish decor of the rooms and lobby. The bathroom are confortable.The hotel is close to Santa Maria Novella Station, about 15 minutes away, and not far from the historical center of Florence. The weaknesses are: the view out the window is industrial, cranes and countless railways. The street is large and very trafficked. So, is noisy, and the balcony isn't a pleasant place where you may drink the coffee. But balcony doors close tightly, so the noise do not enters in the room and rest is assured. As to say that clean room was beyond any reproach, I would recommend owners to order cleaning curtains canopy. Is a shame that are full of dust and lose its romantic allure! Those who prefer organic food I warn them to consider that this hotel has no breakfast. The croissant is aging retarders, juices and jams are with chemicals, and the coffee is low quality. Another reason for small inconvenience: time to time is steam, high humidity, in the lobby and in the room. All in all Antiche Armonie B&B is not bad, but not great. It's OK.
