"Ideal location for Florence"
We loved the place. Our apartment was immaculately clean and very spacious for six people. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Fabricia was very helpful about getting around Florence and vicinity, and her advoces were absolutely instrumental during our journeys around the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything was what I expected and more!"
Our room was comfortable, clean, cozy and beautifully decorated, plus it had an amazing view of the Monastery. Elizabeth and Fabrizia did everything possible to make our experience so enjoyable; they provide us with amazing tips to travel in the city, and also gave us maps, let us borrow books and book amazing tours for us. The hotel is close from downtown […] Florence so car is not needed, but it's a nice to have to explore all the towns in Tuscany (or you can take the train or book tours for them). If traveling by train, use the bus route 37 from SMN to the stop (ferrata) Le Rose 01 (as of Sep 2014, or check the Ataf page for updated schedule and route). Quick notes: the breakfast was great, home made warm bread and cappuccino every day! Internet was completely free for us, so that was a big plus. Don't forget to try their house Chanti. My husband and I have no words to express our gratitude to the staff of Il Poggiolo delle Rose for providing us the best Italian attention we have ever seen. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I voted all excellent on the B&B, such a beautiful place, lovely hostess, and amazing location. We were directed to monuments, food, and culture all which we're amazing!!!! Fabiola (sorry about spelling) greeted us at the gates and we were in B&B heaven. They were very accommodating to us, and their breakfast was true quality!!! Something I haven't […] had since I arrived in Italy. Thank you for the attention to detail and great stay! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our family of 2 adults a teen girl and an 11 year old girl had an absolutely delightful stay. Wonderful family as hosts that went out of there way to ensure we had everything we needed an tips and local knowledge about how to really enjoy Florence. Easy short ride into Florence from the B&B. Highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would go back to Italy just to stay here!"
We were a group of 4 - my wife and myself and my wife's mother and her husband. We had a hard time finding the place, even using GPS, but after meeting lots of locals to get directions (we had to ask a number of different people) we finally found it - and did we ever love it! The rooms were great, the property amazing and the staff ABSOLUTELY amazing. […] The did everything to make us feel welcome. This hotel is a keeper - and next time Im in the Florence area, im booking this B&B again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Top Class Service"
Excellent B & B. stayed 2 nights. Great hosts. Highlighted all the key sights for our 1 day trip into Florence. Free parking & used bus to get into Florence. Bus stop just meters from B&B, 25 minutes into Florence. Close to motorway intersection so easy to get back on motorway for journey to Milan. Leaving in the early hours, Elisabeth left tea making […] facilities and snacks in our room. Excellent service. Would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic stay!! We thoroughly enjoyed it would go back again!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place just outside Florence"
The location just outside Florence was excellent if you are with a car. It is very easy to get into Florence from the B&B. The room itself was very nice and stylish except that there was almost no water pressure with the shower and the temperature on the shower would go from cold to burning hot with no stable spot in between. The staff was friendly […] although not particularly knowledgeable about what to see and what to avoid in the area. A particularly annoying aspect was that even at 100 Euros a night they charge by the hour to use the WiFi. Even tiny cafés don't do that and I spend a lot less at a café.

Only stayed 1 night but very convenient location for airport - 25 min walk dragging cases - & main sights - 35 min walk to leaning tower. Very friendly staff allowed us to leave luggage there the morning of check in day. Very quiet & superb breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"친절한 주인 부부"
1. 위치는 좋습니다. 차량을 이용한다면 피렌체까지 약 20분 걸립니다. 인터체인지 바로 앞에 위치하고 있어서 찾기도 쉽고 가깝습니다. 2. 주인부부가 아주 친절합니다. 3. 조식이 괜찮은 편이었어요 4.이탈리아에서는 10월말까지는 난방을 가동하지 않는다고 하네요. 이런 다른 숙소도 마찬가지지만, 여긴 좀 추웠습니다. 하지만 주인아주머니가 오리털 이불을 가져다주셨어요. 전반적으로 괜찮습니다. B&B... 잠만 잘꺼니까요.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Location in Florence"
My Husband and I went to Florence and we took accomodation in this beautiful B&B. the hosts are very gracious and went every step possible to ensure we had a very comfortable stay. Since we were doing a road trip from Switzerland to Italy, we wanted a place where parking was available and free. B&B is a superb place to be and makes you almost feel at home. The place close to the Bus stops to and from Florence. I am definitely going to come back to Italy and visit Florence again and my choice of stay would be B&B. Thanks for the awesome experience!

We spent 2 nights in this B&B, as it was very close to a wedding venue that we have been invited to. Its located next to ring of Florence. You could reach downtown 15 mins. by bus, that stops in front of the B&B. We really liked the place from the first moment we arrive. The lady who owns and manage the place provided personalized service at the check-in (where to go, what to do, best place in town for snack etc.). We had a triple room which had 2 rooms, quite spacious, nicely decorated, clean and good mattress. But i do agree with the previous reviews, the service what makes you feel really good in this accommodation. Definitely recommended!
"What a great experience"
09/14/14 yossik Israel
What a wonderful experience. The staff is great and extremely helpful, the location is amazing (even though outside the rooms can be a bit noisy), and just 10 minutes away from the heart of Florence. Also a perfect spot for going on trips around Tuscany. Also, Puff the cat became a dear friend of our kids.

I honestly can not recommend this place enough! Extremely warm hospitality, clean and beautifully presented rooms, and very helpful with directions and advising us on where to go and what to do in the surrounding cities of Florence. The location is also great, for those who are driving, it is right next to the highway, so it's very convenient to get on and off. We were three couples who rented part of the villa and we all tremendously enjoyed our stay here. Many, many thanks to Fabrizia and Elisabetta for their kindness and attention to all of our needs!
"Wish we had stayed"
08/21/14 Mario M Rockville, Maryland
We got to Il Poggiolo by mere coincidence. We were driving north from Rome, and had to stop to overnight, so we decided to revisit Florence, and the hotel had an open room. What a great B&B! superb personalized service by the owners, nice breakfast, very nice and comfortable rooms for a great price. Pretty good location with easy access to the city. Wish we had planned the visit more carefully and stayed at least one more night.

Loved this place, situated just outside Florence with public transport available. Fabrizia and Elizabeth did their utmost to ensure our stay was relaxed and enjoyable. Helped us plan our trips with excellent suggestions and were particularly warm, helpful, friendly, generous, etc. Room was lovely and clean and excellent breakfast provided. Didn't want to leave!
"Hotel can't give you the warm attention you get in this B&B"
06/06/14 thijmen Haarlem
We stayed here for two nights and we were very happy with our choice. When you are in a B&B like this, you realise that hotels never can give you the warm attention you get in a B&B. First of all the B&B itself with large and attractive, modern rooms, a nice and very clean bathroom and good beds. There is a garden and a tastefully decorated breakfast room where a very good breakfast is prepared with bread fresh from the oven. Elisabetta, our host, can explain everything about Florence, about the best way to go there, the best restaurants and she has maps, some of them handmade, of the way to drive to those places or restaurants. Although the B&B is situated only a few hundred meters from the highway, we didn’t bother while our room was soundproof. And even when we were sitting outside it wasn’t very disturbing. We choose this B&B among others because of the nearby bus stop. It was very convenient that Elisabetta already provided us with tickets for the bus. So if you don’t want to stay in Florence itself, this is a perfect alternative.
"Florence B and B"
05/12/14 Bruce M Wichita, Kansas
Wonderful in every way! An excellent base to explore Tuscany and Florence. The # 37 bus stops a few meters from the entrance and is a 20 minute ride to the center. Elizabeth speaks excellent English and was extremely helpful with bus tickets, museum tickets and directions. Breakfast was the best quality we have had in Italy. One of the best Bed and Breakfasts we have stayed at.
"perfectly suited for certain travellers"
09/25/13 lynx_g Cape Town Central, South Africa
We recently stayed at this b&b as a couple, and chose it after reading all the brilliant reviews. We found the service wonderful - everyone going out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, sure about bus times etc. The rooms are clean, spacious with modern decor. The (continental) breakfast was also very good - although not much variation between days. The bus into town does stop conveniently close to the entrance of the b&b - takes about 30 minutes to the main train station or 20 minutes into city centre. We were surprised that none of the reviews mentioned the close proximity of the b&b to a nearby large, busy highway and tollgate. This causes significant traffic noise throughout the day and although the rooms are soundproofed, it means you cannot easily sit outside and enjoy the courtyard nor leave any windows in your room open at night. So if you want a relaxing tuscan country break - we suggest you choose something further out of Florence, as this is on the outskirts, but definitely still part of the city. But if you have a car and wish to spend a day or two exploring the area, it will suit you perfectly. (just make sure you see related posts about renting a car in florence as there isn't a rental office close by).
