This is undoubtedly one of the most romantic cities in the world, and all the main attractions are just a stone’s throw away from the B&B Magnifico Messere.

This is a four room B&B located on a fourth flour with elevator. The entrance to the building in the ground floor is not nice: it usually smelled bad and it is not well painted. If you can deal with this, onde in the fourth flour, the B&B appartment is very clean and nicely decorated. Free water, juice and cookies are available all time, to complement breakfast which includes just one cup of coffe and a croissant (or similar) is served one block from the facility. We stayed for three nights and Internet wifi connection didn't work. If you are planning a short stay and not spending many hours in the hotel, it is a place to go.

Lorenzo and his mother were welcoming and efficient. The rooms were modern and well supplied with en suite bathrooms. The B&B was in a safe and convenient part of Florence (very near the Duomo). The only drawback was that this could be a wee bit noisy if you like to go to sleep before 10pm. Otherwise, it was the best experience on our trip.

It is located in a centre of Florence, minutes from the Duomo. The room is clean & modern. There is a common kitchen area where you can relax, read, watch Tv..etc. It is more like an apparment style, rather than a typical B&B. The owner's mother was very friendly and explained in details in Italian - unfortnately, I did not understand Italin at all, but the owner (her son) speaks English well. He may not be there for you, but you can call him if necessary. One thing that I was not aware is that the building is under renovation (exterior). It did not bother me too much though. Once it is completed, I bet it will be an A+ B&B.

Excellent location right next to duomo, spacious rooms and renovated bathrooms, tasteful breakfast at the cafe nearby and the room cleaned every day very carefully - all in all a very good choice for a weekend trip to Florence. We only had two problems - the WLAN worked only half the time and you need to be really careful with the toilets. Upstairs neighbourgh's toilet got stuck the last morning and tried to fluss for more than a half an hour, making a very penetrant sound. We had no problems with our toilet.

Newly renovated in 2008. Clean, modern rooms and the location is excellent (a block away from the Duomo). The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We would stay there again.
