"Great for the price"
We checked other reviews on different sites before booking this hotel and they were pretty positive. The hotel was different than we expected. It's an odd little set up as the hotel takes up just part of an old building on a couple of floors. Feels a bit cramped but the rooms themselves are decent (probably bigger) size compared to other European hotels. […] The beds were really firm but still comfortable. The shower was nice except when there was no hot water during the morning rush. The breakfast was pretty good (standard European fare of deli meat, cheese, bread, & pastries). Really the staff was the best part of the hotel. Betta, who owns the place, goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable and see to any of your touring needs. The other staff was also very kind and helpful. The location is a bit further walk than we expected but still a good location and we walked to everything we wanted to see.

"My home in Firenze forever!!"
This is an outstanding place!! It is family operated and we felt welcomed since the first time we got there. Like many hotels in Italy, it is located in a shared building and the elevator is old, but all the problems finished there. Beta (the owner) treated us like a real mamma as we got to the reception. We've never felt so welcomed and we've been […] to 100+ hotels in Europe and America. About the hotel itself... it has a good location (5 mins from SMN station), no issues with the wi-fi, very good breakfast and the room was spacious and modern. So, it was a great deal and I will obviously try to stay there everytime we go back to Firenze. Beta, thank you for everything! Hope to see you again soon!

"Thanks to Batta, will definately stay there again!"
It was the best B&B accommodation I had for my recent trip to Italy. What my family really liked was the exceptional friendliness and warm hospitality from the hotel owner, Batta. She went beyond the normal B & B services and offered much valuable advice on sightseeing during our 3 days in Firenze. Her suggestions allowed us to optimise our precious […] time & money on attractions worth spending. We were pleasantly surprised when she offered us complimentary drinks and beverages in the room minibar/fridge. The hotel also provided cookies and beverages at its pantry, which makes it convenient for anyone with a craving for a night snack. It was indeed very kind and thoughtful of the hotel owners.The breakfast, despite its simplicity, was delicious. The pastries, cheese and ham were freshly served by Batta, who also prepared hot beverages such as hot chocolate, cappuccino and more. Besides their excellent service, the convenient location of the hotel deserves special mention. From the train station (S. M.Novella), we reached the hotel by foot (Approx. distance: 200m) Exit from the right side of the station, turn right again and via Alamanni . The building is just in front of the bus stop. The hotel, which is on the 2nd level, can be acessed by a distinctive and antique elevator. Hence, no worries with your luggages! Without a doubt, I'll stay in this hotel again on my next visit to Firenze and look forward to meeting Batta once more. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We love the owner and her family! This hotel is close to railroad station and bus station, room is very clean and every staff is very friendly! We will go to live in this hotel next time to Firenze!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
駅から徒歩３～４分でした。到着後すぐに観光名所などの説明をきめ細かくして下さり、スタッフは皆さん親切でした。お部屋も新しく広くて、タオルや寝具も含め、とても清潔で快適でした。シャワーの水量・水はけ共に十分でした。ただ、トイレの設置方法に誤算が有ったのか、便座を上げたままにすることが出来ず、その点だけが不便でした。近くに小さいスーパーがありますが、閉店時間が少し早めなので、飲料水などは街中で買って帰りました。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amazing Location/ Hospitality/ Value"
04/13/14 Ramzi K Dubai, United Arab Emirates
My girlfriend and I visited B&B Marbo Florence last week and stayed for 3 nights. Pros: - Great hospitality (Beta and her sons who run the B&B were extremely friendly, helpful, etc...). i.e. - 3 simple examples: They gave us helpful tips (cheapest place to buy bus tickets), they always smiled and made us laugh, they let us store our bags after checkout. - Location was amazing. Extremely close to the metro/ train station/ bus station. We walked to all the main tourist attractions with ease. Plenty of restaurants/ cafes/ shopping around. - Great Value (Wifi, Breakfast, A/C climate control, etc...) - Modern rooms/ bathrooms, etc... As opposed to most places we found in Florence, the room was modern as shown in the pictures. Cons: - Only con was that a few times the Wifi struggled a bit but it was improved but the end of our stay.

"Great location and room!"
03/11/14 MichelleLynn000 Utrecht, The Netherlands
Really friendly, helpful staff, beautiful rooms and close to all the main attractions and the train station. The wifi didn't work very good for us, but otherwise the room was a dream. I cannot express how much you should stay here when you go to Florence.
"Genuine Florentine Hospitality"
11/14/13 GG V Provo, Utah
We love Elisabeta Nae, the hostess of this B & B. We followed her from her old B & B into her newest endeavor Marbo Florence. This is the fifth time we have stayed with her, and to us she IS Florence! A splendid hostess, she goes the extra mile (kilometer) in every way. The rooms are all newly rennovated and very comfortable. The breakfast is great with good variety and her special good morning. She always wants to know your plans for the day and makes certain you know the correct buses to take. The location is excellent--right by the train station, just steps from the old city center.
"Wonderful B&B with a wonderful host"
10/20/13 cagacayak Istanbul, Turkey
Beta, the owner of the B&B was wonderful. She speaks cute English with an Italian accent. She always kept us good company at breakfast. She worked really hard to make me comfortable. She even arranged museum reservations for me so I didn't have to wait in-line. I totally felt like I was at home. The WiFi was occasionally inaccessible from my room. Breakfast was always good but there were no non-pork (chicken, turkey or beef) meat options available. It would have been better to have alternative meat choices for those who don't eat pork because of religious or dietary reasons. Despite these minor issues I believe that it is a great place for your value. I will definitely stay there again and I highly recommend it.

I honestly don't know how can people write such great reviews about this place while our experience there at the same time was an entirely different one. I traveled with my wife and my son and we are not the pickiest people in the world! The only positive thing I can mention was the size of the room and the really friendly (male)receptionist. The room was really big, but has obviously not been cleaned in an appropriate manner since the first thing we found upon arrival was a half full glass of old orange juice. The real shocker was the floor in the bathroom which was full of hairs from the previous guests and completely covered in yellow urine-stains on the toilet and the floor around it . The fact that these stains where already brownish and dried up is a clear indication that the bathroom has never been properly cleaned. The toothbrush-holder was disgustingly white from inside and outside. It is quite astonishing that in the 21th century places which such a low or actually no standard of hygiene are allowed to open and stay open for business. The next joke, and it really was a joke, was breakfast. We are not great eaters in the morning but what was presented to us in the tiny and again quite dirty breakfast-room, was a breakfast without coffee, with old bread and a completely incapable waitress. Since there was no coffee we asked for black tea (which we could see in a teabox on the counter) and got 3 times a instant-cacao mixture. Since we speak 4 languages perfectly one would assume that we would be able to explain that this is not what we ordered but the waitress did obviously not understand us or didn't want to understand us. We don't expect anybody to speak English or in our mother-tongue to us but we kind of expect that someone who works in tourism has a basic vocabulary-knowledge pertaining to food. Since our reclamation was just answered with unfriendliness and rolling eyes we just left and skipped breakfast the next day. Assuming that the same person also cleans the rooms.....it makes all perfect sense.
"Best ever! Friendly, convenient and with a fun elevator!"

We only stayed one night, but Betta did everything possible to make sure it was extra special and that we had everything we needed. The hotel is located within very easy walking distance of the train station and some nice restaurants. Our room was very quiet and efficient. When I return to Florence, this is where I will stay!

This B&B is great, and especially the people! They were so sweet and helpful! The rooms are very good, modern and most important clean. Also, the location is very good. And Breakfast is very good as normally you only get a croissant in Italy. I will definitely come back;) Thank you!

It took us about 5-8 minutes to find the place, the building is in front of a bus stop. The owner was very friendly, and spoke pretty good English, she was even kind enough to mark out routes on our map and tells us which bus number will take us to certain places. The rooms were clean and spacious, and modern looking also. We were worried about parking in the area, so we emailed the place to let them know we were driving, the owner has some type of deal with one of the parking garages about 90-100 meters from the hotel for only 25 Euros for 24 hours, and if the garage is full all you have to do is mention that you stay at the Marbo B&B and they'll accommodate you. Almost everything was within walking distance from the hotel, and it wasn't hard at all and we were travelling with 2 children and a 2 month old baby. Definitely recommend this place, the price wasn't bad either.
