We recently stayed four nights at this B&B which seems to be more of a rooming house and for that, the price is right. It has a great location in the old town, is clean and has had some upgrading in the bathroom. Advertised as a B&B, you have to go to a small cafe down the street for breakfast. We learned quickly not to pay for the breakfast at Casa Billi because it was cheaper to pay for it directly at the cafe. The downsides were that they did not have any TV channels in English (most places have CNN or BBC) and the Wifi only worked intermittantly in the facility - almost never from our room as advertised. I would recommend this accommodation if you are just looking for a good, cheap place to stay without too many services.

We liked the cental location. Very easy walk from the train station and close to the main sights of Florence. Room was small but adequate & clean. We thought the price was fair. Owners were accommodating when we told them we needed a late check in; we had a last minute change of plans and actually arrived about 3.5 hours earlier than our arranged late check-in time. We tried to call earlier in the day to tell them of our change in plans but could not get through because the phone was set to fax. (Might be a good idea to ask for Lorenzo's mobile number when you book.) Luckily for us, someone was at the desk when we arrived to let us in). Staff was very helpful in recommending local restaurants. We had the room with the private bathroom (wet room). All in all, we really enjoyed our stay in Florence and would stay again at Casa Billi.

Stayed in Casa Billi recently for a friends wedding in Florence. I knew when we booked it was a small hotel with a shared bathroom. In my case it was between 2 or 3 rooms i think. That was fine, never had to wait for toilet/shower (except waiting for my husband!). Toilet seemed newly done up with nice tiles etc. Location of Casa Billi is absolutely perfect. My friends stayed in other hotels (which cost a lot lot more) but to me Casa Billi reflected a true quaint Italian hotel on a narrow street. Loved it really. (Not sure i can rave about the colour of the room (rm 5) tho. and mirror is stuck in the corner, but i'm sure the owner can rectify that?)Despite this, it was perfect. The room looked out onto a small courtyard. Its only a few minutes walk from the train station and a few minutes walk from the Doumo and all the other attractions. I would recommend this hotel.

We have just returned from Florence and we really enjoyed our stay at Casa Billi! The location is absolutely great! It is only a few minutes away from many of the main attractions. Furthermore, the fact that it is only around 15 minutes away from the train station allows one to go to and from the train station very easily.

Casa Billi was never advertised as a hotel; it is a guest house. It would, therefore, be unjust to compare a guest house to a hotel. As we all know, hotels tend to cost much more than guest houses.

We were aware that the place did not offer reception service on a 24-hour basis. This was mentioned on Casa Billi's website. We simply emailed the owner prior to travelling to Florence to inform him about our approximate arrival time. When we arrived and rung the bell, we found the owner and we had no problems at all to check in.

The room was very clean, tidy, and comfortable. The AC worked perfectly well. The bathroom (we had opted for a private one) was spacious and we never had any hot water problems. The shower had plastic doors which opened and closed without any problems, and it was big enough to wash oneself comfortably.

The Casa Billi staff were always very friendly and helpful. As first-time visitors to Florence, they gave us some great tips on places to visit. They even suggested a good restaurant (Trattoria Giorgio) where the food is excellent and where the prices are lower than what is commonly found in Florence. The service at the Trattoria was also extremely good.

Another plus of Casa Billi was the price. We spent 5 nights there and we only paid € 350! Considering the location of the guest house and if one had to compare the prices available at other places, it was a fantastic deal! Of course, if one wants to have a multitude of TV channels and other perks, it is always better to stay in a more expensive hotel, but we just wanted a safe, central and comfortable place.

We hope that the place continues giving the same service we found during our holiday. We are already looking forward to returning to Casa Billi! :)
