CHECK AVAILABILITY
The bed & breakfast Beatrice is on the second floor of an historic 1600 building located in Via Maggio, one of the most ancient streets of Florence known for having many of the most famous antique shops and galleries. Opposite stands the majestic Palazzo Pitti, entrance to the beautiful Boboli Gardens and the back is Piazza Santo Spirito, famous for the homonym church. The unique location allows you to easily walk to all major attractions in the historical center of Florence (Uffizi, Piazza della Signoria, Piazza Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Santa Croce, etc..) and, at the same time, experience the true city life, made up of boutiques, restaurants and nightclubs, but also of craft shops, quaint shops and markets. The rooms are stylish and comfortable and will give every guest the feeling of staying in an ancient Florentine house without giving up all the modern comforts. The bed & breakfast Beatrice is the perfect place to live and enjoy Florence freely on all occasions. The B&B has no lift (at 2nd floor). Upon booking a room, it's required to communicate the arrival time. We do not accept arrivals after 22:00.

Lovely place! the hosts were very welcoming and willing to help us by providing maps and directions as well as taxi service. Some people complained about the stairs steepness on other reviews but was no problem for my pregnant sister and I. We stayed in the Aphrodite room which was clean and spacious. Just down the street there is the St. Marks English church were we went to an opera and the bridge to the other sites is near by.

Wonderful hosts and location around the corner from restaurants.Lighting could be better in room also outlet for hair dryer did not work properly. Steep flight of stone stairs - 41 in all to climb- helps work off great Italian food. Other guests were very noisy and sounds echo in the house but this is no fault of the hosts who are rarer to please and went out of their way to provide me with a very early breakfast.

Grazie mille per questi giorni bellisimi a Firenze! Torneremo sicuramente un giorno :) My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in the B&Beatrice and we loved to be there! Service was excellent, the rooms very nice and the palazzo is very nearby the city center (only problem could be the parking situation, if you're going there by car - but Francesca knows a - for Florence not too expensive - garage nearby). Francesca is such a kind and courteous person. While our next holidays in Florence, we'll definitly try to stay again in this B&B!

B&Beatrice is a three-room B&B converted from a flat. Beatrice was there to greet us and provide orientation, but she became ill and we didn't see her again. It didn't matter, because we didn't need anything . Her mom handles breakfast in her flat on the floor below, and it is excellent. Mom speaks no English, but we communicated just fine. She is a delightful person. The room is cleaned every fourth day, but we only stayed three. This was a fine place and we would return.

The owners are very friendly and accommodating. I felt welcomed and they helped me contact my daughter when I couldn't reach her on my cell phone--I was stressed and they made my feel taken care of. The breakfast was great, homemade jam is fabulous! Convenient to all areas of Florence. I would recommend this bed and breakfast highly and I hope to return some day.

We had a wonderful experience at B & Beatrice. The rooms were gorgeously furnished, Beatrice and her mother were delightful, and the location was off the beaten path. It is a bit of a trek from the city center, but we enjoyed getting out of the bustle each night. I would highly recommend it to couples.

The room is very nice and there is a small balcony area if you want to get some fresh air. It is a bit of a walk to the main station but there are frequent buses so you just need to figure out which one to take. We enjoyed the walk anyway and there is a great gelato shop around the corner. Very nice breakfast - I love their homemade jam (the fig one is highly recommended). Good wifi reception and it is free! There is a laundromat nearby so it is quite convenient if you need to do some washing too. One thing to note is that the stone staircase is very steep and looks slippery so if you have heavy suitcases, it is not easy to get them upstairs or down.

-Great location, everything is within walking distance. We walked from the train station in 15 minutes with big back packs. - Great value for the money - Good breakfast, I prefer fruit but it was sufficient. - Nice size room - Internet and safe in room is great! - Our hostess didn't speak english but we managed just fine. Improvments: 1. More towels would have been nice. 2. Bathroom fan really needed to be cleaned. 3. More hooks or shelf in bathroom would have been helpful. 4. Noisy if you have the windows open, otherwise quiet. 5. Stairs are a good workout (would not recommend for those who have mobility issues). 6. The new bed in the Aphrodite room would be good.

Excellent little family run hotel in a historical building 10 min walk from Duomo. Renovated rooms that preserve flavor of the time (including furniture, doors etc). You will have not just fresh croissant for breakfast, but also delicious cakes freshly made by  the hostess. One of the best little hotels in Italy for the price we saw in years.
