"Really nice place for reasonable price"
The Place is close to the city centre, 2 bathrooms which is really handy, nice and clean rooms. The only disadvantage is the noise from the very busy street outside the window! But there are the shutters which level the notice down because apart that is nothing else what could be done.

"Close to everything but an awful place to stay."
We feel it's important to give other people a heads up of what we experienced. When we arrived there was no one in the BnB to let us in. We had to call to get the codes to let us into the building because the owner was not answering his phone. Apparently the owner had sent us an email to let us know that he wouldn't be there and to give us the codes. We checked and had received no email. Even still an email was hardly enough notice for a family travelling to Florence that day. So that was a pretty awful start to our stay. It's also worth mentioning that the exact same thing happened to another man the next day, and we had to let him into the building. Following this we discovered that our room had no soundproofing against the busy traffic outside. The windows might as well have been non existent for all the noise they blocked out. We had to wear earplugs for our three night stay. In conclusion, we would advise against staying here. The proximity to the city (about 10 minutes to Il Duomo) was not worth the hassle. On top of everything the breakfast was pathetic; a few packaged croissants and bread.

Se dovessi ritornare a Firenze sicuramente alloggerei ancora in questo hotel, è comodo in 15 minuti sei in centro e vicino c'è la stazione ferroviaria!!! Lo consiglio vivamente!!

アパートはほとんど無人。でも前もってメールで詳しく利用方法を教えてもらえます。 大変きれいで、私の部屋はベランダがついていて、洗濯物を干すロープなどがついていたので、快適に過ごせました。 台所には調味料や食器、鍋など、何でもそろっています。フィレンツェ市民を経験できます。

"Un hostal ubicado en una zona con bastante ruido"
Guest house ubicado en una zona exageradamente ruidosa y muy transitada por coches. No hay personal de planta para hacer el chek in. Desayuno muy deficiente.

"This what you get for your $"
07/21/15 Claus M
2 stars from us, this is why The facts: - finding a parking space in a blue bay , if you're lucky pay $18 / day in coins. ; if not call the local person (see 'the bad' below) to have you car parked for $15/day The good: - 5 min walk to center and sites - clean room - 2 clean , though very simple , shared bathrooms for 5 parties - cheap rate The bad: - the worst cutting 3 stars right off: this place is !!!!!!!NOISY!!!!!!. Cheap windows offer NO! Sound barrier and the windows face one of the busiest streets in town. traffic never stops even at night time. We got almost no sleep , needed a lot of wine to get to a couple of hours. - local contact is only intermittently available between 10a -4p. To get a hold of that person you have to call a local number ( international roaming $$$$) and hope someone answers. Then this person has to drive to that place , sometimes this takes awhile due to Florence traffic, the same problem if you have your car parked by them for $15/day You waste quick some time for getting your car returned. We definitely would NOT recommend this place to a friend. We hope this helped.

"Good option for a Florence/Firenze visit"
10/15/13 jemxx Barcelona, Spain
This was a bit of a punt as we booked online on the way to Florence but it was pretty good. Very clean, decent beds, aircon, and nice breakfast things laid out on a table. Shared bathrooms but impeccably clean and we only spotted one other person. The location is tucked just behind the railway station, and about 10 mins walk from main attractions like the Duomo. However, the road was very noisy indeed - even with the security shutters down - so definitely need earplugs. Also our fridge didn't work at all - but it looked like Jonathan, the manager, would be sorting that quickly.

"No sleep at all"
10/15/13 AnniHo Kiel
I would love to write a better review but since a hotel is supposed to be where you sleep in I can only say that it was terrible since we did not sleep at all, even with ear plugs. The hotel is located right next to a 4-lane-highway where Scooters, busses and other vehicles stop and go at traffic lights so the noise is extreme. The windows are very thin. I cannot recommend this place.

"Nice B&B that will fit your budget"
07/03/13 passerby_dito Manila
Location - this B&B is about 10-minutes away from S.M.N. station. It is close to the city center but some may be put off to its actual location (back of the terminal). Also, we took a cab from the opera back to the B&B, the street was a bit dark. So I suggest to check if the area is fine with you before proceeding with the booking. Facility - the reception and hallway are nicely decorated, it is very cozy. The two shared bathrooms are clean, other one is on the small side though. Our triple room has a queen and single bed, where the daily breakfast is already on the table. If you need more, there is a vending machine in the hallway. Service - the host was not around when we arrived, but he gave us instructions on how to enter the building and apartment beforehand. Upon our arrival, he has a note to which room was reserved for us, wifi password and his number in case we need to contact him. We did meet him and his wife on our last night, he collected the city taxes and informed us of the check-out time. The luggage can be kept at the common area, in case you will leave Florence after checking out.

"Awesome place to stay in the heart of Florence"
05/25/13 Mandar G Pune, India
Great location in terms public transportation; the central train station (Firenze SMN) is just about 150 metres away. The B&B is very neat and clean with nice interiors. All amenities are in excellent condition. Wi-fi is fast. Very humble, polite and friendly staff. Gr8 value for money.

"Great value stay in the heart of Florence"
05/05/13 Madeleine_F16 Boston, Massachusetts
Super convenient location near the train station and still very close to the center of Florence. We stayed with a big group of friends and it was nice to be in a apartment style B&B all together. The shared bathrooms were clean and they offered many complimentary breakfast items. Even stored our luggage in the common area after we checked out while we explored the city before leaving on the train. It was a little loud on the main street, but the shutters could be drawn to block out some noise and was very manageable with earplugs.

this B&B is located 5 mins walk from Florence train station, it offers clean and good accommodation for a real cheap cost. Perfect solution for budget staying in Florence! And by the way the staff is very kind! :-)

"Great weekend trip find"
08/08/11 Mustbetrue Mustbetrue
My husband and I stayed here with our friends- another couple. We had a great room-spacious, comfortable with balcony, table with four chairs, kettle and fridge. Our friend's room was smaller but the four of us could have breakfast/ afternoon tea/ night cap in our room. Located right beside a busy road so needed ear-plugs to sleep. For a weekend break this place was ideal - right beside the train station and only a 15 minute walk from the Dome. There were two bathrooms shared between four bedrooms - also clean. Luckily only one other room was occupied and we did not come across these people once so plenty of availability for bathrooms. Breakfast basic - croissant in wrapper, nutella, jams, juice, teas, instant coffee Good value, down to earth and very pleasant stay!

"Ottimo appoggio"
Ottimo appoggio per una notte a Firenze. Vicinissimo alla stazione di Santa Maria Novella. Proprietario disponibile e informatissimo. Camere e bagni graziosi è molto puliti. Da tenere in considerazione soprattutto se si è di passaggio.

"Accogliente !"
09/24/15 Tommaso R Castelvetrano, Italy
Tipico B&B di città turistiche: una buona sistemazione per un breve soggiorno di pochissime notti per visitare Firenze. Posizionato in maniera ottimale, a pochi passi dalla stazione e dal centro. B&B posto al terzo piano di una struttura degli anni 60. L'accoglienza è ottima, così come la camera. Potrebbe migliorare notevolmente la colazione (bollitore in camera con caffè solubile, biscotti, fette biscottate, marmellata e cornetti confezionali). Putroppo, essendo nel su viale molto trafficato, anche con infissi e serranda chiusa, il rumore del traffico è parecchio.
