"What a pleasant surprise."
Arrived in Florence from Venice and was not real sure what to expect. Finding the entrance to the Marbo was tricky. If you do not know that in the city of Florence, businesses have light numbers on their facade and residences have dark numbers, you can get lost trying to find your destination. After going to the wrong #25, we were able to find the right one (dark number) pretty quickly, right down the road. When you walk through the front door and see how narrow the hallways are, you immediately start to think that this place is going to be way too small. BUT, to our surprise, the room (a triple) was quite spacious! The room was clean and bright and unlike most B&B's, had its own heating and air conditioning unit. The front door staff were helpful and super nice. Each day they cleaned the room and supplied fresh clean towels and toiletries. The breakfast was ample and helped get the day started. This place was a 10!!

"Wonderful stay"
We stayed at this guest house for 2 nights and would definately recommend it to others. We had a hugh family room not what u expect for a really old building. It had really high ceilings and the beds were really comfy. The rooms were stocked with complimentary drinks which was replenished daily. Not just water .... soft drinks and juice. ThE building is conveniently located near the trainstation so access was good. It was also walking distace from the main sites. I honestly wish we had more time. My only draw back woukd be that the lift needs to be improved but it was fine as we also got help with the suitcases. Now I save the best for last. Elizabeth and her sons were all really really nice and always helpful. This is what made the difference.... excellent customer service. If I have the opportunity again I would definately stay there .... wonderful experience.

"Quick stay in Florence"
Our group had two rooms for or one night in Florence. The location close to the train station was very helpful. Constantino and Elizabeth are very helpful and friendly. They were very accommodating in storing our bags so that we could explore Florence. The rooms were perfect for our group. We would definitely stay again.

"Nice stay"
The hotel is only 5 minutes away from the train station. The sign is VERY small, I walked past it a few times because of that. Only a small gold plaque by the door, on the left side of the street. The room and service were nice, pleasant and helpful staff. There was a small fridge in the room and a grocery store very close so it was convenient.

"Great Location and Friendly Staff"
Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) stayed comfortably in the family suite. We also met our niece and her friend. They stayed in a regular room for two. Both rooms were clean, well-maintained, and quite comfortable. We were welcomed by a friendly staff that was helpful in accommodating our early afternoon arrival. The hotel is very close to the train station and within walking distance of all the main sites in Florence. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend B&B Marbo to other travelers.

"Nice family run B&B"
It is a very nice family run B&B within 5 minutes walk to the central train station located on a major street which is easy to find. The room and bathroom are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is nice with adequate selections. There are cookies, water, and hot tea available 24 hours outside breakfast room. WiFi is free to guest, however, the signal is very weak for rooms located far from check-in area. The only thing I wish they can improve is to start the breakfast time as early as 7am instead of 8am. There were two mornings we need to catch train or tour bus around 8am and would not have breakfast at the hotel. Otherwise, everything is great.

"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! Marco and Alexandra

Everything was simply great at B&B Marbo! The host is super friendly and hotel is easy to find. The hotel location is very near (abt 5mins walk) to the Firenze train station, and it is also near (abt 6mins walk) to bus station where you can catch the bus to The Mall and bus to the Airport. Room is very clean and comfortable; interior of hotel is very new too. My friend and I really have a very wonderful stay at B&B Marbo!

"Outstanding service."
This small B&B is run by 2 very friendly and helpful brothers. We rented a room for 3 adults and it was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The B&B is located near the SMN train station, so it's close to everything. Be aware that streets in Florence are numbered in "red" and "black", so once you think you have reached your destination, you haven't. You need to keep going to the next block, where number start up again. Constatino (one of the brothers) was the one we interacted with and his recommendation for dinner was Outstanding (good price, amazing steaks). I would make a beeline for this place the next time I'm in Florence.

Room was very spacious (i booked a triple room) and modern-looking. The staff, Costantino and his brother, are very helpful, give great travel tips, advice and map. They are very friendly people to talk to and give an uplifting mood to our stay, nothing is too troublesome for them! The B&B is very near to Santa Maria Novelle train station, such that we can drop our buys from our day trip before continuing with another day trip on the same day! The free mini-bar and 24h access to drinking water, cakes and cookies are great for late-night cravings. Safe neighbourhood.

"Great B&B, Highly Recommended"
This was a fantastic B&B! We stayed in a family room and the room was very spacious and clean. We also received complimentary waters, juices and pepsi's from the mini bar. The staff were amazing - very helpful and informative! Breakfast was very yum and included a good selection (continental) with a staff member to assist with coffees and teas. There is also a tea/biscuit kitchen set up outside of breakfast hours which are perfect for early mornings or afternoons in between sightseeing and dinner. Some great restaurants less than a 5 minute walk by the hotel. The only thing that is tricky is finding the hotel - the streets are a little confusing and there is only a small bronze plated sign to reference the hotel - it may be good to make it easier to find the hotel. Otherwise, AMAZING!

The "pros" of this hotel are proximity to the train station, cleanliness, and the extremely kind and helpful staff. There are however some "cons" to this hotel. Our main concern was that we did not feel safe in the neighborhood and always had to ask people to move away from our doorway to use our keys to get into the building. The entrance hallway and stairwell are not lit when you enter and you have to walk through the dark to activate the light switch for the building (or else every floor is pitch black without any window light; the lights also once turned off while we were going down the stairs). The old, one person elevator to get to the hotel on the second floor was not ideal. Also, the short reception hours meant that there would have been no one to help us if an issue happened on the way up. It was also awkward that one can almost see though the glass bathroom doors and there is even a gap on the side of the door so you can actually see the person if you walk over to the corner of the room to try to give the other person some privacy. Finally, we found the mattress a little too stiff to our liking and the air conditioning was a little noisy and blew directly on us all night, which probably contributed to us waking up with a sore throat. There is also not enough space to dry towels (which resulted with staff putting the towels over the shower rails for them to dry) and there is no glass for toothbrushes. Breakfast was also a little stale.

"Wow for a B&B!"
When I first stepped into the room, my first reaction, is "wow". Room is newly furnished, looks like I'm in a 4 star hotel room. It's way above my expectation. The breakfast is great too, nice cappuccino. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, in particularly this lady called Betta. Location wise, it's just a stone throw away from Firenze SMN station. Will definitely stay in this hotel again should I come Florence again!

"Delightful family run, comfortable hotel."
What the hotel lacks in modernity, is made up for in the homely comforts offered. A refreshments room offering tea and biscuits 24/7 is a nice touch. As is the beverages left for you in the fridge on your arrival.The delightful family who run the hotel are so warm and welcoming that you can forgive the neighbourhood. Extremely professional approach , providing each guest with those extra comforts which elevate the ratings of this little hotel justifiably. Clean and comfortable rooms and a very decent breakfast also. Not in the most pleasant area but certainly convenient for train or coach arrival.

"Great location with excellent service!"
The location is just across the street from the train station - this was particularly helpful as we had lots of luggages with us. We had a very warm welcome from Betta who instantly made us feel at home in Florence, showing us the way to explore Florence within the time that we were there. We were delighted when we were shown to our room, which looked exactly like it was in the photos - spacious and comfortable, set in a modern design. We will definitely like to revisit Florence again as it is such a beautiful place and Marbo B&B is certainly the choice of our stay. Highly recommended!

"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.

El personal muy amables, te hacen sentir en casa, te atienden maravillosamente, Constantino y Ana quien nos preparó el desayuno antes de partir muy temprano, nos llamaron el taxi para el aeropuerto, todo excelente. El hotel es pequeño, en el segundo piso de un edificio antiguo, al llegar te encuentras con un elevador antiguo pero tiene su encanto, ya dentro todo excelente, la habitación muy amplia y cómoda y el baño también.

Il personale è molto cordiale, la struttura pulita e la zona perfetta, a due passi dal centro. L'unica cosa "strana" è che mancava il bidet nel bagno, sostituito dal tubo (come quello nella doccia) attaccato al muro. Ho apprezzato molto il fatto che le bevande nel frigo bar in camera erano gratuite, è molto carino il fatto che ci sia uno spazio per prendere uno snack (biscotti o ciambellone) e per farsi un buon thè caldo in qualsiasi momento, sempre gratuito.
