Upon arrival we found closed door/no Reception, but there was a phone number to call. We called, and 5 minutes later we had our key - the Reception and the free breakfast is in another hotel around the corner. We actually were checked in 3 hours ahead of check-in time. This might be a disappointment for some, but for the money we thought this was a great value because the room & bathroom were very clean, the beds were very comfortable and we had a beautiful balcony over one of the main streets connecting Piazza Vecchio with Piazza Duomo. It was Sunday, and things were happening under our balcony - strolling tourists, horse and carriage rides, street musicians, shopping. This is probably not a good hotel room for someone who's looking for piece and quiet, but it was perfect for us (you can grab a gelato on the plaza and enjoy it on the balcony). The breakfast was ok, no complains. The check-out for quick, Front Desk was polite and offered to call a cab to take us to airport.

Room Tip: if you don't like noise of a big city, don't book this B&B

The location is perfect, the rooms were large and wonderful, B&B staff was great - in other words perfect except for something totally outside the control of the hotel. Licensed street performers with city permits use strong amplifiers to blast their music loud enough to be heard 3 blocks away (literally). They play right under your window until 11pm, then they stop and the wine bar next door blasts almost as loud music until past 12:30 am - all perfectly legally. A totally asinine decision by the city of Florence, spoiling an otherwise magical place. The B&B noise insulation is normal (no street noise) but they cannot withstand the megawatt assault of the music. So bring earplugs and don't book a room facing the Piazza della Repubblica. Some of the rooms were being remodeled so maybe they will install triple-glazed windows.

Read previous reviews and we did get an email telling us to check in at a different hotel. Glad we did as without the hotel chap leading us to the B&B we'd never have found it! Driving through the streets of Florence was an experience, parked outside the hotel where we checked in and the hotel organised for someone to pick the car up and park it securely for €25. The B&B was lovely, really high ceilings and lovely balcony over looking the busy Florence street. Literally 5 minutes from the famous bridge and less than 10 minutes from the Duomo. Location was perfect. Breakfast was continental buffet which was fine. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and thought the B&B was good value for the ideal location.

I really would love to give a good review but the only positive thing was the location. On arrival we had to check in at another hotel, luckily another couple told us where to go because we had no idea. We only saw one member of staff at the start who give us our keys after that we only saw a cleaner, once. No staff on reception. Our double bed was two singles pushed together and my son's bed was not good. The bathroom had hairs on the wall. The location was great but the lack of staff was very disappointing. Another guest had to show us how to use the coffee machine and the breakfast was average, no top ups of the fruit or croissants.
It felt like a DIY bed and breakfast, lack if staff really let it down.

We spent 2 nights at this Band b, nice room, friendly staff and the best location for the price you could hope for. If you have a rental car make arrangements to park it in a garage,. 25-30 a day. They will arrange. The place is impossible to drive to and driving in Florence is stressful at best.

Room Tip: Get one right on the square.
