"Excellent owner, slightly inconvenient location"
We were greeted by a very accommodating and kind owners that are husband and wife. We stayed in a very spacious room and there were other visitors from the U.S. The only thing we weren't 100% happy about was the slight inconvenience in getting to the center of the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best place in Florence"
Stayed here for two nights while touring Italy this summer. Loved the location of this b&b. You can walk from there to town or to the train station but is in a residential area so you don't hear the city noise. The breakfast was great and you can even eat outside on your balcony. Our host, Lara, was also great! She speaks very good English and helped […] us plan our Tuscany tour. Whenever I go back to Florence, I'll be sure to stay here again!

"Great location for airport and downtown"
It's a small, local place to stay that is easy to get to the airport or to the sights downtown. But most of all, Lara was wonderful from the beginning to make sure that we were comfortable and great to offer as much information for our stay. It's a small 5 unit B&B type apartment which is so Italy!.We loved it and would stay again. The rooms are close […] together and the walls are thin but there is also a great balcony for afternoon or morning relaxing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed for 3 nights. Laura and Lorenzo are such lovely hosts. Warm, friendly and helpful with advice, maps, directions. Breakfast is simple and nice. We loved the bread/cake homemade by Laura's mum. Room is very clean and fresh. Location wise, it's 10min bus ride and 20min walk from Firenze SMN station. As it's not right in the tourist centre, we […] like the quieteness after a day in the city. There are nearby restaurants, pharmacies and supermart and a cinema 5-10min walk away. Sensazione just around the corner serves good food at affordable prices. All in all, great place and better hosts! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Average clean accommodation - overpriced"
We (a couple) stayed at this b&b in October 2013. The location is average, a good 25 min walk to the city centre, accessible by bus. The rooms were very basic, small but clean. The host was friendly and nice. The negatives: 1. The most annoying part was the host was speaking to someone in the apartment in Italian late afternoon and early morning. […] This was very disturbing as the rooms are all close to the dining area. 2. The breakfast was very very average, supermarket croissants and not much choice that looked appetising. Felt cheap and not worth the 65 euros we paid for one night. Overall not recommended if you are looking for a nice relaxing place close to the city centre Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Warm friendly welcome from a clean comfy B&B"
I went to Florence with my mum so I was apprehensive about whether we had a nice place to stay. I needn't have worried - we had a lovely stay at Il Grillo. The rooms and the B&B generally were very clean and comfortable. The owners are a pleasure to meet; Lara is lovely - very helpful and welcoming, and we were sad to say goodbye. I would recommend […] staying here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable & great service"
Really enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean, large and had a lovely balcony attached to it. Shared bathroom was kept in immaculate condition which made the stay alot more pleasurable because we were concerned with a shared bathroom but it was fine. Check-in was smooth. Lara was super friendly and helped as much as possible, provided maps and recommendations. […] Breakfast was decent. Pizza place downstairs was delicious and affordable also. Our aircon kept turning off in the middle of the night which was a little uncomfortable but aside from that it was great. Really helped that Lara was so lovely, i think she really makes this place worth coming back to. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great base for Florence"
09/20/14 Chris L Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
Just a 10 minute bus ride from Santa Maria Novella rail station, this is a great base to stay and sightsee Florence. Lara is very welcoming and friendly and multi-lingual. The room was comfortable, clean with an excellent bathroom. You could sit on the balcony for breakfast if you wished with coffee on tap. She is very knowlegeable and helpful on what to see and can advance book some museum/gallery tickets if you desire. I would not hesitate to book again in the future.
"Clean, comfortable,welcoming B&B"
08/13/14 morgansfire77 Coventry, Rhode Island
Easy to find by car's GPS, we were buzzed into the building by Lorenzo and took the small lift up. We were greeted by pleasant, welcoming hosts and roomy, bright, sparkling clean air conditioned rooms with private ensuite bathroom and balcony. The common area kitchen where breakfast is served is also bright and clean with tables indoors and outdoors on the sunny balcony. Very quiet, relaxing atmosphere from which to explore Florence.
"Wonderful start to holiday in Italy!"
I chose Il Grillo Firenze because of the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and they were right! My stay exceeded my expectations. On arrival Lara gave me all the information I needed on Florence and booked a day trip for me and Lorenzo made my coffee and breakfast every day! The balcony was lovely for breakfast looking over the rooftops to the hills. I stayed 6 nights and my room was perfect and immaculate! Pizza restaurant around the corner was really good. Bus stop a few metres from door and just a few minutes to central Florence. Great neighbourhood. I travel alone and I always felt safe coming home late at night. I would definitely recommend Il Grillo Firenze for your stay in Florence. Thank you again Lara and Lorenzo!!
"Amazing stay!! HIGHLY Recommend! "
08/07/14 ToniLucas Ajax, Canada
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in Florence, and right away we knew we made the right choice. As soon as we walked through the door Lorenzo welcomed us with a warm smile, sat us in the lovely kitchen/dining area, and got us a tea and coffee. He took the time to go through the city map with us, pointing out all the attractions and how to get there (making sure we knew how to walk there or take the right busses if we wanted). He recommended delicious places for dinner that were close to the B&B, that had good prices and weren't crowded with tourists. Our room was everything we needed and could have asked for. Everything was clean (cleaned daily), especially the bathroom (which each room has it's own). The beds were also really comfortable and the streets were quiet for a good nights sleep. My favourite place though was the breakfast balcony. Complete with tables and a comfy couch, you can eat your breakfast with a spectacular view of the mountains/hillside with the town below. It's also covered so you can eat there rain or shine :). Lorenzo makes sure you want for nothing, bringing you your tea and coffee, quickly learning how you like it. It also impressed me that he made sure he learned our names. Little things like that go a long way! Without a doubt the best place to stay in Florence! Thanks Lorenzo! - Toni & Brandon P.s the coffee is excellent!!
"Holiday in Florence"
07/26/14 Edwin1345 North Vancouver, Canada
This is an outstanding B&B, from the time we arrived we were treated extremely well. The rooms, common area kitchen and patios are extremely clean. The kitchen is well equipped. Lara and her husband were very helpful with our planning of sights to see and buses to take. There are maps and tourist literature available. The breakfasts were plentiful with a lovely assortment of breads, cereals, jams, meats, juices, milk, fruit and yogurt to choose from and the coffee is alway freshly brewed. Most of all though, was the friendlyness of this couple. This will be my first choice if I return to Florence. Ed Jackson

My husband and I together with another couple who are our friends were transferred from Rome to Florence. We arrived at around 6:30 p.m. and Lorenzo welcomed us downstairs and helped us with our luggages. After checking in, he offered us beverages, got a map and showed us how to get around. He is very charming, helpful and friendly. Following morning, we met Lorenzo's wife, Lara who like Lorenzo is very friendly and speaks English fluently. Lara comes in every morning before 8:00 to get breakfast ready. Breakfast is good and plentiful. There was yogurt, fresh croissants, mortadella, cake, bread, cheese, cookies and coffee. Lara makes the best cappuccino. The dining area is large. There is a also a large balcony facing the main street. Our airconditioned room had a balcony. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. I love the big towels! Although the B&B was not located in the city center, it has a bus stop right in front of the building. A good restaurant was just around the corner and there are convenient stores across the B&B. This B&B is a jewel of Florence. The owners, Lorenzo and Lara are the best! I will stay here next time I visit Florence and will definitely recommend this place to my friends and to anyone wishing to visit Forence.
"Great B&B in Florence"
07/25/14 Hsiu tao T Taichung, Taiwan
This B&B is our first and last stop in Italy. The hostess Lara is really friendly, considerate and informative. With the room ready in the morning on our first day in Italy, we were able to rest after the long flight. The room is really clean and the breakfast is very good. The location is convenient for those who come from the Florence airport. It takes within 15 minutes to take a taxi from the airport with a cost about 14 Euros. Also, it is convenient to take a bus to the city center. Lara and her husband are really great. If we plan to stay in Florence in the future, B&B Il Grillo di Firenze will certaily be our best choice.
"We will be back"
This is a great B&B with comfortable rooms and excellent service from the owner Lara. Beautiful large outdoor balcony with plenty of seating. Great breakfast each morning with great Cappuccino. Host and owner Lara was fantastic and a great source of where to dine and how to get around Florence. The bus stop is right outside and laundry is across the street. We will stay here every time we visit Florence.
hostess Lara was simply amazing! Highly recommend this place! We have just returned from the beautiful Florence and we totally loved our stay at the B&B “Il grillo di Firenze”. Lara & Lorenzo are so very welcoming, friendly and helpful ! We were given some good ideas for sightseeing places and public transportation. Breakfast was really good too.
"Great Little Place to Stay"
07/09/14 Crispy83 Cheadle, United Kingdom
Really enjoyed our stay at Il Grillo di Firenze, it is very welcoming place to stay and it is not too far away from the city if you like a walk like us (about 20mins from the train station). The area around the B&B is very good with a Pizzeria and Supermarket just round the corner. The room itself was spotlessly clean and the aircon and free wifi is great - the breakfast was excellent as part of the room price with pastries and fresh cappuccino out on the lovely balcony giving you a great start to the day prior to sight seeing. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
