Mary's House
Ranked #514 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Literally 3 minutes from main railway station. Easy to find, and we were emailed a few days before we departed with a contact telephone number in case of any problem. Large comfortable en suite room with marble floor. Need to be aware that the Hotel is on the upper floors of an 18th Century building. Stairs are steep and no lift. Not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Also no breakfast facilities, this is not a problem as there are numerous small bar/cafes within 5 minutes walk.
All the main attractions are less than 15 minutes walk away and Mary will provide a map and directions.
Overall a good budget option for a two or three night stay in Florence.

We stayed here in a room with a private bathroom. literally 3 minute walk from the train station. the owner, Mary, is very kind and helpful. being that Florence isn't very big, the Hostel's location is great. Room & Bathroom were very clean. Only downside for younger travellers is that it's quite quiet..Good value.

If you're just looking for a place to rest your head at night and not expecting to spend any time in your room, this is the place. It's very clean, cheap and basic. Mary and her son are very nice and accomodating. And the location is unbeatable, just minutes from the train station, near Santa Maria Novella and all the sights. However the noise from the street below does travel up and even with the windows closed, it's still pretty noisy. Otherwise, a great budget place to stay while in Florence.

Stayed in Mary's House for five nights. Rooms and bathrooms are very simple but very clean. (There is a fridge and is close to the supermarket but no jug/TV/internet.) The bathrooms are shared and there is a lot of hot water. The owners are extremely friendly which made a nice change.

The location is very central - close to the train station and only a short walk from the main shopping areas and galleries. However some of the rooms over the street are quite noisy as there is a pub on the street below the building.

Would recommend for people who are looking for an affordable short stay.
