“Beautiful B&B right in the heart of Florence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

We stayed for five nights in one of the new rooms at this B&B. It is amazing how it is so centrally located and so quiet at the same time! You can walk to all the museums and sites from here, which made it possible for us to hang out in the piazzas till late at night enjoying the local musicians who play there.

The new rooms are very well maintained, and come well-equipped. The room was very large, and very clean. The Wifi works well, and what you can't find online about Florence, the B&B owners are always ready to help with. They also helped us make reservations at a couple of museums and gave us ideas of road trips. The bus from the train station stops right outside the B&B, but you could also walk there in 15 minutes or so through the historic center.

With such great location, wonderful hosts, and good rooms, we are certainly going to make it our base again for our next trip.

Room Tip: We loved our room which was at the end of the apartment of "new rooms". It is large, quiet...

Casa Tintori was in a great location for us, just a stones throw to all the museums we had on our shortlist. It was fabulous to be in the centre without the street noise (as our room was on the courtyard). Ricardo and Lavinia were very welcoming, and everything in the room worked!
The breakfast was leisurely and generous .. couldn't have asked for better! We had a wonderful weekend. Tip for a great restaurant.. degustation of seafood... Cenacola del Pescatore.. book!

Room Tip: The yellow room was lovely if a little small. Very cosy and welcoming!

I started writing the review but had to start all over again because my stay at this B&B was such a fabulous experience that I was going on and on without any end in sight. I will try to keep my review short and sweet and relevant for all future traveling fellows!

I give you two reasons: extremely friendly and knowledgable hosts who speak English very well and more than satisfactory qualities of the room and service, and location, location, location. Okay, that's actually three.

I won't say much about the hosts or the room or the service because they were all excellent. There was nothing missing that I needed. The breakfast is simple but chatting away with the hosts (mine were Riccardo and Lavinia) over a fresh cup of cappuccino really sets your mood for the day for good.

The inn is located just north of the river, one bridge over to the east of famous Ponte Vecchio bridge. Very close to Uffizi. Great local dining places, gelato parlors, and bars (in an Italian sense) and bars (what I think here in LA) are literally a minute or two away. It took me about 20 minutes to walk south-westward to the B&B from the train station, cutting diagonally across the historic center of Florence on the map. Once you learn the lay of the land, which is not difficult because the city is so compact, it feels like about 10 minutes to walk to the train station.

The bottom line: you won't be disappointed.

Oh and one last thing. WiFi (I use Mac and iPhone) was a godsend for me!

Room Tip: If you are overly sensitive to the sound or noise from other rooms or guests, bring a pair of earplu...

This was my second time staying at Casa dei Tintori. My first time was for 5 nights in Oct 2009 and I stayed in the blue room.I was so happy to return because of the wonderful experience my first time round. This time we were a family of four and we stayed again for 5 nights. My husband and I had the Indigo room and our adult children were in the Blue room. Alfredo, Valeria and Riccardo were again very hospitable, helpful and always charming. We enjoyed the lovely breakfast that Valeria so lovingly prepared for us. Our rooms and bathrooms were beautifully kept,very clean and very comfortable. We were treated like family.Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, they were always ready to help with anything we needed eg restaurant recommendations and bookings. Free Wifi and use of the computer in the lobby is very helpful.
The location is excellent, close to lots of things. We walked everywhere. Great restaurants close by, mini supermarket across the road.
Thank you Alfredo, Valeria and Riccardo for making our stay so wonderful, cosy and memorable. You made us feel so welcome and at home.

my husband and i honeymooned in italy in Sept and florence was one of our favorite cities. this b&b was absolutely perfect!! the location was AMAZING. it is perfectly located right near the arno river so you can explore outside the city and everywhere within. nothing takes more than a 20 min walk (and that's if you are walking all the way across the city). alfredo is so nice and willing to do whatever he can to help you enjoy your time in florence. we stayed in the "new room" which is separate from the main house, but we loved it. the room was spacious and it was wonderful to have a kitchen to use.

i highly recommend staying here. the price is great, the location is perfect... what more could you ask for?!

Room Tip: loved the "new room." separate from main house. kitchen to use and keep groceries.
