"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 hotels.com 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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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。Genuine Expedia guest review

"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"

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"

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!

Не плохой вариант размещения при небольшом бюджете. Плюсы: чисто, нормальный персонал, завтрак в номере, довольно большая комната с кухонным уголком (т.е. при желании можно даже готовить), штопором, посудой, всем необходимым. Балкончик есть в некоторых номерах. Близко от ж/д вокзала. Минусы: Общая ванная комната (но стоит отметить - очень чистая!), далеко от центра - идти минут 20.
"scarso; però utile per chi deve starci poco"
10/27/14 Kafka84 Ravenna, Italy
Abbiamo soggiornato solo una notte. Il B&B è situato all'interno di un palazzo molto vecchio (penso degli anni 70 non saprei dire) che al primo impatto, non ti dà la sensazione di un B&B. Si trova al terzo piano del condominio, e puoi optare per prendere le scale o l'ascensore. L'ascensore, lo si può definire in maniera simpatica, "vintage"; anzi obsoleto: il massimo di persone che può contenere sono due a fatica (senza contare che devi salire con le valigie); per poterlo azionarlo devi chiudere quattro ante. La camera che ho soggiornato (una doppia) era piuttosto piccola, manca di lampadario o luce sul soffitto; per illuminare la stanza ci sono solo due abasciur oppure una lampada da terra (che però si trova dall'altro lato della stanza). Il sapone liquido in bagno (in comune) è diluito con l'acqua. Ti forniscono solo un asciugamano grande per la doccia, ma non per le mani e il bidet. Durante la notte è impossibile prendere sonno, in quanto c'è sempre il rumorio, del continuo, frenetico traffico cittadino che dura per tutta la notte: Impossibile attutirlo chiudendo finestra e abbassando la tapparelle. Dovrebbero cambiare gli infissi con finestre anti-rumore. Tenere il frigo accesso durante la notte è impossibile, molto rumoroso e si unisce al coro del traffico. Utile, per chi deve soggiornarci per pochi giorni e spendere poco e sopratutto è molto vicino dal centro, a pochi passi dalla stazione santa maria novella.

Большая комната, чисто и уютно. Завтрак ждал уже в номере))) Ванная комната чистая. До исторического центра минут 15 ходьбы. Понравилось все. Единственный минус это ОЧЕНЬ шумно из-за машин под окнами. Возьмите с собой беруши и это спасет ваш сон)))
