Reviewed 5 weeks ago via mobile

This B&B is a gem! It is located centrally and a short walk from every major attraction. Claudia is a warm and gracious host who could not be more pleasant and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and charming. We will absolutely stay here again during our next visit to Firenze!

Reviewed 11 September 2017

I reviewed this hotel in 2008. Nothing about the physical nature of the hotel has changed. Rooms are still outstanding and you real feel you are in the heart of Tuscany. The hotel is right on Piazza Signoria across the Piazza from the Palazzo Vecchio. The difference this time is the ownership. Claudia and Bruno now own the place, but according to Bruno, it is Claudia's place. They are both fantastic. They helped us immensely. Bruno even sat down with us to have a couple of bottles of wine one night. He even helped us with a change to our dinner plans after he told us the place we were going "could not tie the shoes" of the place he recommended. He was right. He has a million stories that would make a great book or movie. We love them both. One caveat, there is no elevator, so if you cannot walk steps or carry bags up steps you may have an issue. But if you can stay, don't hesitate. It is fantastic.

The room was attractive and, even more importantly during this summer's heat wave, it was comfortably air conditioned. You couldn't find a better location, walking distance to all the major sites. The proprietor was friendly and welcoming. We had an early flight, so missed breakfast, but it looked like a good spread. Just a caveat, though if you pick an upper room: you should be comfortable with stairs. There are no elevators, probably due to heritage zoning issues, but the proprietor will help with lugging suitcases up.

We absolutely loved our stay here. The hotel is in what feels like a secret corner of the busy and dramatic Piazza della Signoria, in walking distance of nearly every major sight in Florence. The hotel is in a former convent and so has large wooden beams and deep-set windows that look right onto the piazza. The breakfast was simple but satisfying with fresh fruit and cappuccinos, and Bruno and Claudia were friendly and helpful and helped us send out our laundry. The shower was large and modern - not true at other hotels we stayed at! - and the wifi was strong (ditto). Would return without question.
