“A great place to unwind and close to the action.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

My husband and I stayed at Casa di Mina at the end of May and it was a great choice. as everyone has stated rooms are clean, elegantly decorated without losing the sense of its origin and the city it resides in. Lynda and Francesco are friendly and happy to help where they can, the restaurant they recommended to us - 'La Terrazza del Principe' was a short leafy stroll and we enjoyed it so much we went back again!

the city center is a short bus 11 ride away, buy your bus tickets at any tobacconist store or the Poggio cafe near the B&B- remember it only is valid for an hour and a half from when you scan it in the bus. otherwise you can walk if you don't mind.

the B&B is located in a leafy and quiet area, the road it faces is a 'main' road and even though we heard the cars they were not a big thing especially as u always heard birds through out the day.

all rooms are as you see them on the site and the junior suite has its own en suite- although we personally thought the other bigger bathroom had more charm due to is tap, handle fittings etc which we felt fitted the Italian villa much more.

we would definitely stay here again and recommend it to other travelers- particularly if you want to pamper yourself with a real double/ queen bed- rather than twin bed pushed together, a spacious room to relax in, beautiful gardens and yummy breakfast.

My husband and I spent 5 days at Casa di Mina, and thoroughly enjoyed this home away from home. The rooms are large, clean, quiet, and beautiful. The neighbourhood is very upscale, and the property is gorgeous. Lynda is a terrific hostess, very informative of nearby restaurants, parks, and sites. The home is walking distance from the historic walled city, and there are 2 bicycles available to travel further to surrounding parks. Breakfast was a delightful time to meet the other guests.

Casa Di Mina is like a treasured jewel. For our recent trip across northern Italy, with 3 nights in Florence, we had much difficulty finding the place with the right "feel" for us. Casa Di Mina was actually the 5th place we booked (we did cancel each of the others). We would be traveling by rental car, and knew parking in Florence would be an issue. Successively, we were booked in an elegant old hotel out of the city center, to a hostel, to a highly-rated centrally located small hotel, to a top-rated small hotel in the center, and we just weren't "at rest" until we found Casa Di Mina. We wanted to avoid the tension of finding parking in Florence, and we wanted to have a certain sense of remove from the very center of Florence.
Casa Di Mina, classified as a Bed & Breakfast, is in a lovely 19th century villa, and parking is free and, we found, very safe, across the street, along the street. A regularly-scheduled short bus ride into Florence's center was available near by.
The rooms are beautiful, elegant, spacious, high-ceilinged, and give a sense of quiet and spaciousness. Our bathroom was large. The breakfast is served elegantly, and in a large living room, with "French doors" opening onto a balcony, overlooking the garden you may enjoy. Bowls filled with freshly-cut fruit and choices of excellent cereals distinguish the fine breakfasts.
Lynda, the owner, herself sets a tone of warmth and elegance. You "know" she is a person of many interests and intelligence. She is soft-spoken, accomodating (our arrival was late), and non-obtrusive.

We had a a very relaxing time at Casa Di Mina. It was lovely to wake up hearing the birds in the morning and we were only a short walk from the city. There were some lovely restaurants nearby too. We would recommend this B and B to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

A lovely home away from home. Our room had style and was comfortable. Breakfast was nice and ample, with a lovely bowl of fresh fruit salad.
The very best thing we loved about staying here was the free use of bikes - a bike is by far the best way to see Florence. You can easily ride to the nearby San Miniato di Monte church and onward to the Piazzale Michelangelo, which both have stunning views of Florence. A ride into town is easy done, though back might be a bit harder as it is up hill! Overall a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: We chose the room across the hall from the stairs next to the kitchen, it was spacious and away from...
