Not easy for me to find from Railway station - Very confusing So I was later arriving than arranged but note left on entrance saved the day and arrangements had been made for someone else to show me in and give me key to room. It was a Sunday, so I didn't get to see anyone until the next day. Shops all closed. Apart from that - a really nice place to stay. Grazie.

Location was good. After taking he is to the town center, we discovered it was not that far and walked the remainder of our stay. My concern was the quietness of the room who his located at an intersection where 3 busy roads meet. Marina assured me it would be quiet if we closed the exterior windows, and she was right. But we needed to ask for a remote to control the ac for air circulation. Sp easy access to train and bus station, 5 min walk. They also recommended The Galleria restaurant near the bridge....it was over the top delicious and casual atmosphere.

We requested 2 single beds but they only had 1 double. It was close to the train station but difficult to find becasue the sign is a 3" plaque above a Legal Services sign that dominates. It is OK-I would not stay there again and the breakfast was all prepacked fair. The second day we left and got our own croissants and cappucino.The WIFI was very limited and kept dropping. We resorterd to using our own hotspot on the IPhone with our TIM card. I have mosquito bites all over my arms because we slept with the window open, they do not have screens on the windows (typical for Italy though)1 to 2 stars.

Amazingly spacious room, even with two separate beds. It is a short walk from the train station, away from the old city center but convenient if you travel by bus. It had large windows and a nice view of a busy street. It was very convenient for us as we were carrying luggage from the train. Everything is updated and clean, comfortable, attractive, and secure. The manager is very kind and helpful. Made our travel day very relaxing.

Wonderful hospitality from the Host. Very clean and presentable rooms. Free WiFi, fridge and TV included. Fantastic!!! Quite a walk from the railway station with heavy luggage - OK without. Would recommend B&B and would certainly stay again.

It's a bit far from the city area and train station, you have to walk at least 10 minutes from station to the hotel and 20 minutes to the tourist area but with the services and price they offered, still worth!

small room and not our idea of breakfast!! making hot water and package coffee and a stale packaged pastry!! we moved the tray to the hallway the 1st night after the staff moved my suitcase on the floor and he did not get the massage we did not want the brakfast the 2nd morning and did it again!! find a place that offers a nice buffet like Hotel Capri Inn. THAT was my experience in France 8 years ago and most B&B's in Italy could learn from Capri Inn (this visit)and France, too. Dinner at The Golden View off the bridge of Ponte del Vechio was fabulous!! Highlight was dinner cooked by our daughter in her apt.We did not receive a copy of our final bill, no one was there when we had our taxi pick us up at 9am of check out day.

This little B&B was very nice, if a little noisy with the window open as it overlooked a main road. We had very few complaints about it. However, the breakfast was rather insubstantial and our main gripe was that when we arrived we were told by the owner that instead of booking us the 4 nights that we had booked, she had accidentally booked us only 3. This obviously rather threw us into a bit of a panic as we had just stepped off a long train journey and wanted to freshen up etc. and not be faced with this kind of hassle. However, the owner offered us another B&B in Florence or her house in Chianti for the one night. We opted for the B&B in Florence and actually had a very nice stay there, despite having the inconvienience of having to up sticks and move all our luggage back to Antica Posta again. The owner did provide us with taxis however to get from B&B to B&B which made it easier. All in all, it was a nice little hotel but this incident rather marred it.

Antica Posta is fairly conveniently located. There is a little walking distance to buses and about 10 minutes walk from the train station. The area it is in is a nice, clean business street. It was a surprise to find a BnB in this location and from the outside of the building, appears to be an apartment building. However, once inside, it very much exuded a BnB atmosphere complete with warm and cozy decor and fragrant, relaxing scents. We love our room. It was spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful but certainly allowed you privacy. Another nice touch was the reading material provided. We'd love to go back.

The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. More like a big bedroom then a hotel room. The staff were very friendly. It wasn't to far to walk from the main attractions. Breakfast wasn't much but it was nice to have a kettle in the room and a fridge.

"Anteca Posta" is the excellent. But the system of "venere com" is to be improved,for it's cancellation of reservation. In my case, the system did not open to work before 72 hours rule for the cancellation.
