Firenze has expensive accomodation but Istituto Gould was an exception. 44euros per night for a single room during Easter was great value. 20 mins walk from train station, 500m from ponte vecchio, spacious and clean rooms with bathrooms. Very nice gardens too. Do book well in advance .

As other cities in Italy, finding a charming, peaceful and central hotel with a budget price is not easy. That's why i think Instituto Gould, in Florence, is a catch. This residence has clean and good size rooms with private bathroom. Situated in Via dei Serragli (Oltrano's area), Istituto Gould's palazzo is located near Palazzo Pitty and Ponte Vecchio and...

We were 2 couples in our 60s staying 1 night in Florence before returning home. We had stayed at a Foresteria Methodist guesthouse in Venice 3 weeks before. Like that one, Instituto Gould was spotlessly clean and extremely well located. Unlike that one, the desk staff was SO friendly and helpful, including making our 5 am taxi reservation for the...

I stayed here in August, 2007. I booked through their website. I believe we paid about 27 Euros per person which felt like a great deal. They accept credit cards. The Institu is about a 15 minute walk from Santa Maria Novella, Florence's main train station. And about 10 minutes tops to the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. Definitely an easy...

My sister, my boyfriend and I stayed here in September 2005. We paid 72 euros per night for a triple with shower. Breakfast was NOT included. It is 15 minute walk from the main station. The main sights are also a 15 minute walk away. PROs: - Huge rooms and great value for money - Clean room and shower (also...

This is a great place to stay! Better than a normal hostel and cheaper than a hotel, this is a great choice for the budget traveller. You have the option of getting a single room (for a bit more money) or to share a room with 1, 2, or 3 other people. I chose a room with 4 available beds...

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighbourhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
