"Great location & breakfast, noisy street side room"
Great location, clean, spacious room with GREAT breakfast but our room was on a busy street with lots of noise. I recommend but request a room not on the street side.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean and within walking distance of attractions. The downside, I reserved a room for 4 and was given a triple room. I have been to 9 countries in Europe and when I booked a room for 4 I got a room with enough beds for all of us, not here. They kept saying I booked a double room as if they were doing me a favor by giving me 3 beds. Apparently the fact […] I said there were 4 of us when booking it did not mean anything. The lady at the front desk was rude and unwilling to accomodate us, one of us had to sleep on the floor. Everything else was ok! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No one present when we tried to check-in. Since we were traveling internationally, it was a huge issue for us trying to find a phone to call. We wasted more than 1.5 hr just try to find someone to check in! It was very annoying! Otherwise, the room is good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable stay close to tourist attractions"
We stayed 3 nights in May 2014 during our Italy vacation. Overall we are very pleased. It is located at a walking distance from train station and most other interesting places in Florence. Room was clean, everyhting is relatively new. One small drawback - too few power outlets in a room, not possible to charge all our multiple gadgets at once. Breakfast […] was exceptionally good and generous. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Windows in our room looked on a busy street (via Nazionale) which was noisy at times even during the night.

"A good place to stay!"
We enjoyed our stay at Cicerone...it was in neighbourhood we chose and close to most things we wanted to see, within walking distance. The hotel is on the 2nd floor,very clean,felt cold at times but there were many extra blankets to keep us warm. The owner was very nice and helpful...like giving me kettle for evening tea.The breakfast was really good,with […] lots to choose from. Also liked how the hotel was decorated..lots of paintings and fotos on the walls. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and friendly staff"
Cicerone Guest House is a fantastically located 8-bedroom hotel. It takes about 5-8 mins to get to the main Florence train station, as well as Il Duomo (The Cathedral). It is located 2 mins away from Mercato Centrale, the biggest market in Florence. The staff, especially the owner, couldn't be more friendly, starting with lovely breakfasts and finishing […] with letting us leave our luggage for a few hours at the end o our stay. The only disadvantage was the lack of lift and the guest house is located on the first floor. However, some members of staff helped us move our luggage. All in all, friendly and helpful staff, great location and very good value for money. Highly recommended!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"big room, great location"
except for no lift to go up to guest house which is located at 2nd level, everything else is great... Good location , big room, big wardrobe, walking distance to the railway station and nearby attraction.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we spent two nights. for chinese or others who like chinese food, it is a good place, for just 5 steps to a chinese snack bar and a convenience shop. the reception is nice. he just treated you like lord. the room itself is a little old, and the hanger in the closet is just too high for us shorts. anything else is nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Thumbs up!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a simple guest house. I felt that the neighbourhood was slightly dodgy. Owner/manager was not around all the time but I left a note to request for a hairdryer and he responded by leaving the hairdryer in the room when I got back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Comodo, pulito, accogliente... consigliatissimo"
Situato in una posizione strategica, a due passi dalla stazione e dai principali monumenti e locali cittadini. Camere spaziose e molto pulite, ambiente confortevole e colazione completissima. Tutto ottimo, come la disponibilità e la gentilezza della proprietaria. Ve lo consiglio vivamente. Unica pecca il parcheggio poichè, pur essendo raggiungibile […] in auto è praticamente impossibile trovare posto in strada e bisogna quindi rivolgersi a qualche garage privato.

"Fine settimana a Firenze"
Ho passato un fine settimana con mia moglie a Firenze e Cicerone Guest House è stato un ottimo pied-a-terre. A pochi minuti a piedi dalla stazione di Santa Maria Novella, appena dietro il caratteristico mercato rionale di San Lorenzo in pieno centro storico e con 5 trattorie nel raggio di 100 metri dove cenare la sera dopo avere camminato tutto il giorno. […] Ideale! Migliorabile: dalla nostra camera il rumore delle batterie condensatori dal tetto vicino è stato fastidioso di notte e avremmo gradito un paio di cuscini di riserva in camera. Però è assolutamente raccomandabile, i titolari sono gentili e collaborativi. La camera standard spaziosa e il bagno pulito. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Ottima posizione a quattro passi dal centro e dai principali monumenti. Gestito con serietà ha camere spaziose, ordinate e pulite. Struttura spartana ma ideale per chi ama l'ospitalità senza fronzoli. Lo consigliamo a chi bada all'essenziale. Ci siamo trovati bene e ci torneremo.

"Nice but very simple"
I stayed here with two friends for a couple of nights on a road trip. The room is very simple but clean and the caretaker is very nice. This is a good place to stay in a lively neighbourhood. If you plan to spend a lot of time in the room i would look further but of you want to spend your time in the city i can recommend Cicerone. Rooms are very qu […] iet.

Ett bra hotell där du får vad du betalar för. Däremot är det ordentligt lyhört så om du har några problem med detta var beredd på att använda öronproppar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"bon rapport qualité-prix"
Je suis en général satisfait de cet hôtel. Le tarif était assez bas par rapport aux autres hôtels sur Florence. Malgré une petite difficulté de langue, le gérant était très gentil, serviable et très agréable. La chambre était propre mais un peu sombre car la grande fenêtre donnait sur petite cour qui n'est pas ensoleillée. Cela ne nous dérangeait peu […] car on n'était pas à Florence pour rester dans la chambre. La salle d'eau était très petite mais propre. Par contre l'isolation acoustique entre chambre et couloir ainsi qu'du plafond sont à améliorer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location and Hospitality"
06/16/14 A budgetplaces.com Traveler
Nina was great, helpful and attentive. The position is great for all the main attractions with a very interesting market round the corner. Breakfast was all you could eat and as much coffee and fruit juice likewise. From the main train station go left and walk down Via Nazionale for about 300yds until you get to the junction with Via Guelfa, turn right and the Cicerone guest house is right there opposite a small café and supermarket.
"Close to everything and affordable"
06/01/14 Andy S Sunnyvale
We stayed here for three nights during our Italy vacation and overall we liked it. This place is not a hotel but european-style B&B so adjust your expectations accordingly. Location is good, walking distance from train station and major tourist attractions. Our room was facing the street (via Nazionale) and it was quite noisy, sometimes even during the night. Breakfast was very good, generous and everything is fresh. Rooms are clean and new. Bathroom is small, shower is tiny but works OK. Room has very few power outlets so if you have many gadgets you'll change them in turns. Staff is very nice and helpful.
"Works for your low budget"
05/31/14 Silmy K Jakarta, Indonesia
I was here on April 2013 along with friends, there were 5 of us. We came too early that the staff had not cleaned the room which intended for us. We had to wait a couple of minutes then voila, our room was ready. It's quite spacious with 5 beds. The room interior was a bit ethnic if I could remember with large window and a private bathroom -- it's small but clean. If you are in low budget and looking for nice place I think this one suits you well. It's not really far from the bus terminal, it's only 5-7 minutes walk. The receptionist guy didn't really speak english, but he's really really nice. When he knew I'm a moslem, he let me use his prayer mat and his room to pray :)

I was here in April 2014 with my husband and we thought the guesthouse was great! The breakfast was amazing (lots of food!), the room was clean and a good size (yes the shower stall is very small but manageable), lots of light in the room because of the huge window, we absolutely loved it and would stay here again! Thank you!!!
"Great location for Florence, minimal amenities"
01/27/14 Scott B
We were happy enough with this place. Its more for travellers though, than for tourists. Lol. You get a bedroom and a small bathroom in a one-floor facility. No breakfast, no amenities (well, wifi was free), but clean and run by good, honest people. And, good location.
"Not a bad stay"
10/07/13 e_moshun Calgary, Canada
The room we had was large, the bathroom was a little awkward but manageable. Room was fairly clean, although everything in the room was dark - perhaps lighter color bedding would brighten the rooms. Host was a nice man, didn't speak much English but catered to us even though he had this policy that he'd shut off the air conditioning during the day and turn it back on at 5pm. Wifi worked really well while we were there. A little difficult to find at first, but once you do it is close to a lot of things. Other than that, I think it was a good stay for what you pay.
"Comfortable and good value - great host!"
09/02/13 Tigresatiffany Toronto, ON
Super close and very easy walk from train station. Entry is one flight up from very plain door - just buzz and wonderful Mohammad will guide you through. Very secure three key system for entry. Centrally located, market around corner - great coffee! great prices there. you can shop for leather all day. Beds are comfortable, bathroom is large, but shower stall is small. there is a remote for the AC and TV. We were room #4 - it faces the street which was very interesting to look out onto on a rainy night - but it is noisy. We use earplugs so it was no bother. Room was spotless clean. I think Mohammad - a calm and kind presence makes this place great.
"Good for the price"
This is a great place to stay in Florence if you are on a budget. It is within walking distance of most of the city, but the trade off is that the walls are not well insulated, so you can hear almost everything outside. The "family" room (5 beds) is nice, but I would say the loudest, as it is on the street corner. Great value, clean rooms, and a normal shower, so in all a good "American" style place in Italy.
"A true gem for the price you pay"
05/06/13 Marika L Espoo, Finland
The best thing about Cicerone Guest house is the location - once you find it. The guest house has no sign whatsoever and it's located in the second floor of a very basic Florentine building. Just follow the map. It is there. Very close to Mercato Centrale (you will be happy the breakfast isn't included to your room price!) and only a short walk away from the railway station and the historic center. Once you get to your room you will be positively surprised, though. Make no mistake: we are talking about a basic accommodation. But the rooms are clean and quiet and have everything you might need. A real bargain in an expensive city! The owner may seem a little confused but don't worry: everyhting will be taken care of.
"A guesthouse that will never be missed!!"
09/26/12 LauGal Mosta, Malta
Stayed there for 3 nights and really was not pleased with our room!! (Rm 6). The room was so small there was barely any space to move around!. The same goes for the bathroom - the toilet was almost touching the shower, the shower was small you can barely shower properly plus because the shower was so small the shower curtain constantly sticks to you, there was no place to hang the towel to dry not even outside the bathroom.. we had to use clothes hangers and hang them on the bathroom door!!! Everything was in the way especially the wardrobe which was just outside the bathroom and which when opened we couldn't pass and had to close it or the bathroom door each time! Room service (towel and bed sheets change) every four days and cleaning I think after each stay as it was never cleaned even when there was room service. As other reviews mentioned at night it is noisy even with windows closed. The only positive thing I could mention is that it is very close to the train station and is in a convenient location to main attractions in the city.
