We stayed in room number 2 at Locanda de Compi for five nights in June 2010 and found it to be a very good experience.

We stayed three nights at Locanda de' Ciompi in May 2010, and found it to be comfortable, friendly, and perfect for our needs. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, the bedroom was of adequate size (not huge, but this is a B&B in a very old European city), and there were (openable) double windows to keep out any street noise.

We stayed here for 6 nights and the experience was close to perfection. The B&B is excellent, with a central position, cozy rooms and good services.

We stayed in this guest house overnight when husband was running the Florence Marathon, and we chose it mostly for its location - it's a fairly short 5/10 minute walk back to the hotel from the finishing area (Santa Croce), in case that's of interest to anyone reading. A bit further to the starting area, along the banks of the... More
