The question is not whether you should visit the city known to many as the art capital of the world in Italy, but why you haven’t yet. When you start planning your trip to this Mediterranean country, there are a whole lot of things to consider but first on the list should be finding the right accommodation for your needs.

So if you are looking for a bed & breakfast with a suburban setting that is close to city center of Florence, you’ll find just what you need at the Abatjour Bed & Breakfast. Near the airport, train station, convention center and shopping district and within easy reach and even walking distance of some of the most exquisite Medieval and Renaissance art in the entire world, guests of this Tuscan city capital accommodation will be more than pleased.

You can’t say you’ve seen Italy without visiting the Jewel of the Renaissance!

The Italian city of Florence has seen its fair share of the greatest of artists which is why travelers come from all around to see epic masterpieces such as the David at the Galleria dell'Accademia , the Palazzo Vecchio which houses works by Leonardo da Vinci.

Just imagine – as you return to your affordable Florence bed & breakfast after a day of exploring the beauty this city has to offer, you will be walking the very same streets that great men such as Botticelli and Michelangelo once walked. The cafes and restaurants are probably a little bit different than those of the 14th century but the aura of art appreciation remains quite alive.

Pack your appetite because Tuscany is well known for its food as well!

Guests of this central Florence Art Deco-style B&B will be sure to work up an appetite after all that sightseeing, so ask staff of the Abatjour just where to find the best place to sit back, relax and enjoy a Tuscan meal.

Excellent location for business travelers. A lot of parking lots outside and to my opinion and the locals no parking police. We paid for the parking but we found a lot of cars without permissions and parking bills. A little bit far away from main touristic attractions but it is compensated a quality and the size of the room. A big bed with no creaks it is a rarely thing!

This b&b was just as it was advertised. Paolo was a courteous and helpful host. The room was clean and quiet, with a nice private bath. It was not close enough to walk to the heart of Florence, but very near the bus stop and only about a 10 minute ride.

Very knowledgable staff. Provided good advice on the City and was very helpful at booking our trip to the gallery and getting train schedules. I would have preferred a better breakfast (it was a bed and breakfast) but we read the ratings and knew not to expect too much from the breakfast. The City has much to see, the markets are good, the food is good and the Tuscany area may be deserving of more time on our next trip to Italy. An in room safe or access to a safe in the hotel would have been the biggest improvement. The hotel is close to a train track so you can hear trains at times.

The staff were lovely. I would recommend it to other people. The room was small, but that's OK, there's not much else you can do with the building's space. Oh, one thing, the cab driver I got on the day I checked out ripped me off. You should not use them. He added in an extra charge for no reason I could see and the price to the train station was 5 euro more than I had previously paid. I didn't argue as I speak no Italian and he spoke no English. Also, I was with my child and did not want to let her know that I was not happy with this. Thanks.

Abatjour was one of our favorite places we stayed at throughout our trip. Everyone was exceptionally nice and the rooms were quite large by Italian standards, and the decor added to the warmth. Though not relatively close to any sights, they will help you find the right buses. My husband and I enjoy walking and were able to walk everywhere we wished to see in the city.

We stayed for a couple of nights and were really happy with the accomodation. It is a little bit out of the centre and not in the prettiest district of Florence but it is only a short bus ride to the main attractions or a few Euro in a taxi. The room was very nicely decorated and clean with decent quality bedding and towels etc. The breakfast is not great but we found that to be the case in a few places in Italy. You just get fruit juice, water a yogurt and some packets with croissants and such like in. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the B & B is in a nice quiet location. Its not the ultimate in luxury accomodation but it is very pleasant and comfortable with a good dash of Italian character and charm... I would recommend the place for a short stay.

Our room was actually a compact apartment in a remodeled attic space and though charming, had limited headroom in some areas. It also included a washing machine, dishwasher, sitting area and downstairs mini bar. The owner, Paolo, was gracious, charming, helpful and spoke excellent English. Breakfast was minimal (packaged everything) but adequate. Hotel Abatjour is a nice long walk from the center of Florence, but has nearby frequent bus service. It was enjoyable to leave the bustle of city for this area that bordered on residential.

We stayed in a twin room. The owner Paolo is definetly the best part of this B&B, he is very funny, welcoming and warm. He can't help enough and gave us a very good restaurant recommendation (ZeroZero). The downsides were the location - a bit out of central Florence, the breakfast was just sweets wrapped in plastic and even though we were quoted Euro 69 to stay both nights, we were charged Euro 79. It is not so good value for Euro 79. He said he made a mistake about the price on Venere. The beds were nice and the room is really pretty and clean.

The room was really cute and the hotel is well located. The hotel is near the railroad so we hear the train but this is not unbearable. The only real default is the Breakfast, which hardly deserve the name Breakfast. In spite of that I recommend this place as this is really comfortable and the persons available here speak english fluently (better than, me do not panic ^^) ********************************************** La chambre était vraiment jolie et l'hôtel est très bien situé. Par contre la voie ferrée est proche donc on entend les trains passer (ça reste supportable à mon goût). Le vrai défaut concerne le petit déjeuner, pas très engageant. Ce n'est pas un Bed&Breakfast, c'est juste un "Bed", mais très agréable que je vous recommande donc. Le personnel est sympathique et parle très bien l'anglais. Même si vous ne parlez pas anglais on peut toujours se comprendre entre français et italiens !

A little far form the center of the Firence. The B&B is much like a family type. When opening the door, you can smell exactly like a home. The book-exchanging activity is quite interesting. Abatjour only receive "cash". That's unconvenient.

This is a very friendly B+B and in a good location for visiting Florence on foot. However, it is situated between a road and a railway track so it can be quite noisy, though there are shutters that dull the noise. Also the breakfast is a little disappointing as it consists of a small tray of food/drink on the table in your room when you check in so there are no fresh products. Value for money though overall is good.

I probably shouldn't complain much as I explicitly searches for b&b's of a cheapest kind. So actually I don't, but there are some afterthoughts. I found Abatjour one night price 45E ok, ( can't be lower anyway ), and paid 52E upon the check-out - this is o.k. What I didn't realize is that bus to the center costs 1E a ride, and the cheapness of the hotel was primarily due to the railroad in about 50m. Thus, as it usually happens, the price difference didn't pay off. Nevertheless, I don't want to make an impression that Abatjour is a bad place, because it is not, for such a low price. Once you've found a pair of ear-plugs and don't mind (relatively short) bus trips, there are no problems at all. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, and you can even rent a bike for 6E (half-day) or 9E ( full day). Still, next time I'm on a one-day stay, I'll look for the a-bit-above-the-cheapest class.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the bed and breakfast Abatjour compared to the price. Our host welcomed us when we arrived, provided us a map of the area with directions on how to get to town by foot or by bus. The room was fantastic for April. It may be a bit noisy for some with the train going by, but actually I did not mind at all. In the summer it may be a bit hot with no A/C or fan, but it was perfect in the spring. I would definitely stay there again.

This is an excellent Bed and Breakfast. It is located on a quiet residential street, but with some interesting neighbourhood shops and only a short walk (or bus journey) into the city centre. Our room was spacious, clean, beautifully-decorated and elegantly-furnished. But what made our stay so pleasant was the warm welcome we received from Paolo Manini and the other people who work there. Paolo took the time to tell us enough about the area, the bus service and the city to ensure that we did not put a foot wrong. Also, the idea of making breakfast available in the room is hospitable: it allowed us to follow our own schedule in the morning. We warmly recommend this as a place to stay. Mike and Helen Rapport.
