Elena was a wonderful hostess, seeing to our needs, but more importantly, insuring us a sense of "family" and sharing. While directions to Fiorenza should specify the bus stop (Gelsomino 03) and the right turn half way up the hill, the location was great. We loved being there, either walking or taking the bus into town, and sharing stories with Elena. We will definitely stay with her again!

Elana made our stay perfect. My husband was reluctant to stay at a B&B but after our stay, and Elana's fabulous breakfast, he changed his mind. Our only regret was that we only stayed 2 days. This B&B was in Florence and centrally located we wish we had stayed there the entire trip and taken day trips to other cities. Highly, Highly Recommend!!!

We had a wonderful stay at Fiorenza B&B. Elena was very welcoming and hospitable and provided helpful advice on the city and directed us to several local restaurants where the food was wonderful and the service excellent. The rooms was very clean and comfortable and just as described on the internet. Breakfast was excellent with a fresh croissants and a wide range of other options. Situated in a quiet street and with a very pleasant garden it was a quiet and peaceful location. Although a little way out of the city, this was not a problem with an excellent (and cheap) bus service taking only 10 minutes to get there. It is walkable if you are feeling energetic! We had a wonderful stay. Thsnks Elena!

B&B Fiorenza completely exceeded our expectations! We read many excellent reviews but it was outstanding in our opinion as well. First of all, we loved that it was outside of the city....and actually enjoyed a long walk into town once or twice but also liked figuring out the bus (which was simple) and taking that into town as well. For us, travling to another country is not just about the touristy stuff but actually getting to know the people. We were able to do that in taking the bus and seeing the locals. Also Elena was an excellent host!!!! She made us feel right at home. She was so helpful in giving us a map of the area and highlighting some hot spots including some very excellent restuarants. Her breakfast was outstanding, the best we had on our entire Italy trip. Everything was homemade and soooo delicious. We were also able to use the kitchen ourselves if we chose to. One night we bought a bottle of wine and had a relaxing evening outside in her beautiful garden! We can't say enough wonderful things about Elena and her B&B!

As mentioned in all the other reviews, my sister and I found the welcome from Elena friendly and informative. She has a good command of English and was keen to help us whenever we asked. She even booked a restaurant for us and our taxi for return trip to the airport on departure. She always popped in to see us at breakfast to ensure we had everything we needed. Once you have mastered the buses, that seems to be the best way of getting around. We did walk into the town and back on our first day, which was probably a mistake as we ended up with blisters. It's not a long walk but the pavements are uneven and there is a lot of traffic to contend with. It's important to remember that walking the 30 minutes into town, and spending a few hours viewing the many sights, does play havoc on the feet that have been hidden away in boots and trainers all winter! The accommodation is excellent and every day the breakfast was something to look forward to. It was always fresh with a variety of teas, coffee and fruit juices, cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit and pastries plus wam crossants and jam. She also provided ham and cheese and often there was a home made cake or pastries to enjoy. It was great to be able to make use of the guest kitchen during the day as one of the days we stayed there was raining quite heavily and we didn't fancy walking around in it so we heated up paninis in the oven and sat in the lovely kitchen enjoying them. I cannot recommend Fiorenza enough for a quiet, relaxing stay, out of the bustle of the town but within easy reach of the sights. My personal view about the sights (apart from the Ponte Vecchio which is a must but very crowded) was the statue of David at Academia. We only had to queue for half an hour, without tickets. It was wonderful. But that's just my view .......

Can't think of a single negative. Quiet location with free on-street parking, easy access to center, nice rooms, excellent bathroom facilities. The breakfast was divine, and they went out of their way to accommodate a gluten-free diet. Best, though, as others have said, was the hospitality. Eleni acts as if each guest was the first to ask how to catch the bus, taking time to explain everything and mark it on the map, giving several (excellent) dinner suggestions, volunteering to take care of museum reservations... Her small children are well-behaved and delightful, adding a real family feel to the place. We couldn't have been happier.

Very much enjoyed our two day stay at Fiorenza. Having a car, it was important to be able to park, which wasn't a problem on the street out front. Elena and her mother were gracious hosts, and Elena was very helpful locating a nearby place to fix a flat tire. And if you don't speak Italian, both speak excellent English. In terms of location, it was easy via the car from the A1 autostrada. To get to the center, my daughter and I walked mostly (25 minutes), and did take the bus once, which was easy and convenient with a stop right at her neighborhood (2 blocks away). So, for a tranquil location in a real Italian neighborhood away from the tourist traffic, but with easy access, this place was a gem. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at Fiorenza, the B & B was very pretty and in a lovely part of Florence away from the hustle and bustle but only a short bus ride into the centre of town. For the energetic it was 30 minute walk. Elena was really lovely, very welcoming and helpful and the breakfasts were wonderful with fresh fruit, croissants, yogurt etc. The rooms were decorated in a very classical but comfortable manner with a nice comfy sofa to relax in at the end of an exhausting day. I would return to this B & B at any time and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Elena was the most gracious and helpful of hostesses. She thought of the smallest details. She posted the bus schedule every morning, and took care to find out what we wanted to do and see if she could help. The rooms were charming - everything you think of as a great B&B- we felt at home. We had access to kitchen so that we could make a meal if we chose. The breakfasts were delicious, carefully made and varied, including fresh fruits, homemade baked goodies, jams, meats and cheeses. The location is outside of the city centro, on a quiet street with easy parking. The Europcar rental agency is walking distance if you need a car.

This B&B is exellent value for money and the staff is extremely friendly and happy to advise on everything from where to go and park to where to eat. We had two very authentic dinner recommendations and very friendly chats with the owner. The B&B is slightly outside the city centre and off street parking is available. It is advisable to take a short bus ride into the centre. We did not feel that this was a problem. You could also walk if you are fit. All in all we can only recommend it and very much enjoyed our stay.

Our first time in Italy started with a few nights in Florence in Fiorenza and it was wonderful! Fiorenza is located near a bus stop (10 minutes to the city) but we walked down the city and had an enjoyable stay at Fiorenza. It is a very neat and personal B&B and Elena is a fantastic host! We liked it that it was not located in the center. We had a nice room with a large and nice bed and an adorable view on the garden. The breakfast was nice with fresh coffee, croissant, yoghurt etc. and was a good and relaxed start of the day. Definately worth a recommendation!

Breakfast is nicely done. Location is back in neighborhood, which requires taking the #37 bus into the tourist areas of Firenze (very easy to do). Easy drive to Piazzale Michelangelo for incredible views and picnic. Relatively easy access to the A1. Walk to the Antica Porta for excellent pizza and more.

My wife and I had a pleasant three nights at the B&B Fiorenza. The location was quiet and convenient to the bus stop. It was even "walkable" at night from downtown Florence as we found out when the buses stopped running at 7:30 one evening while we were sight seeing 'White Night'-45 minutes to be exact. Elena was hospitable and helpful in planning our options as we had a car for countryside visits to neighboring towns in Tuscany. We would definitely return.

My mother and I were very lucky to find out about B&B Fiorenza and chose to stay there because of the excellent reviews. Elena and her mother are wonderfully friendly and helpful and go out of their way to help their guests arrange their activities and travel. The location of the B&B is ideal if you want to escape the tourist hoardes and stay in an attractive and generally peaceful part of town. I loved starting the day with the walk down the hill and across the river - through gardens and quiet country roads. Or there's the bus, which takes a more direct route and is easy to use.The bus takes about 15 minutes to get to the centre. I really valued the little things that Elena has arranged to make her guests feel at home. Guests can use the kitchen whenever they want and help themselves to coffee, tea, juice, snacks and delicious home made cake throughout the day. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to others.

This is a beatiful property away from the city. Although a 10 minute bus ride #11 from the city, one can also take a walk along a beautiful nature path to get to the city. Great restaurants in the area. Owner Elena and helper Maia makes one's stay so pleasant and enjoyable. Elena is very informative and patient. Warm personality. Maia is very interactive and a flare of sunshine. We loved them both. And Elena also has a beautiful family. If renting a car, there is a Europecar rental just walking distance from the property and easy access to the highways from the B & B. If you require a car rental, contact Elena for the address of the car rental near to her home. The B & B was always exceptionally clean and breakfast was always good. We were accomodated for an earlier breakfast when we needed to travel at an earlier time. Elena provided additional information on sights as well as other destinations in Tuscany. Great choice

We stayed three nights in April at Fiorenza B&B. It was wonderful! We were two middle-aged couples, and rented two rooms, which were quite capacious. The showers were excellent and the water was hot with good pressure. The breakfasts were copious, and tea and snacks were always available. The walks to the restaurants recommended by Elena's terrific mother, Giovanna, were long, but we could have eaten closer if we'd preferred. It's a lovely neighborhood and the hosts were very accommodating -- available for everything we needed but far from intrusive. Our niece joined us for a couple of nights and they were happy to make up a bed for her in my sister's room. Elena showed us how to get around Florence by bus and provided maps, too. We would definitely go back!

Elena, and her mom are delightful and very helpful and willing to make reservations and address any needs. Their helper, Maia, is fantastic... diligent to keep things nicer/cleaner than even at the best motels we stayed at...anywhere! Maia speaks excellent English and can also take care of reservations and address any needs. As with all motels/b&b's in Italy have earplugs on hand... tile floors just echo a little more than carpeting. But this was in the residential area and very quiet in terms of street noise. There are lots of stairs... so be aware that there is no elevator to your room.

We spent a week in Florence and our room at Fiorenza was a very pleasant place to stay. The neighborhood was quiet and close enough to the center of Florence that we walked back and forth at times. The bus was most convenient and our host, Elena, helped us book museum reservations and an early morning taxi to the airport. She provided the most delicious breakfasts and gave us suggestions on where to eat. At Fiorenza we met some very nice fellow travelers and the whole experience added to our happy memories of Florence.

The location was perfect for our needs and always pleasant to return to after a day exploring Florence. It is located in a quiet suburb on the southern hillside above Florence and it was nice to wake up to the sound of birds rather than the sound of traffic every morning. Elena was the perfect hostess, friendly, helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. The room was spacious and comfortable with a king size bed and ensuite bathroom. There was a TV provided in the room with a digital receiver enabling us to tune in to English speaking news channels. It was very convenient having access to the kitchen 24 hours a day and the breakfasts provided were excellent. The only minor gripe was that all accommodation areas had tiled floors which amplified any noise by guests, especially late at night.Florence city centre was approximately a 10 minute bus journey and the buses ran frequently from the bottom of the street. Alternatively there was a lovely walk down to the Arno River, via San Leonardo and Forte di Belvedere which avoided all the major roads.

The communication with our hostess was great. She sent me emails following up on my reservation and inquired when our train would arrive. Unfortunately, the day of our arrival, our train was delayed 2 hours and there was no one at the B&B to open the gate. We stood out in the rain ringing the bell until a kind neighbor let us use his cell phone to call her. One of the hostesses was inside, but didn't hear the bell. Very frustrating. The room was beautiful, the size of a suite with a private bathroom and a great view of the garden. The breakfast was lovely. It is not close to downtown Florence though, so be prepared to walk or wait for the bus every day. I would stay there again but only during the warmer months. The March weather did not allow us to enjoy their expansive garden and it made walking up that giant hill to their house not pleasant at all. A cab ride from the Campo Di Marte train station to their B&B was around 25 Euros. There was also no wi-fi access at the B&B.

This was the first time we had stayed in an Italian Bed and Breakfast and being proprietors of a top quality Bed and Breakfast in England we arrived, naturally, with high expectatons. These were met immediately with the welcome we received by both Giovanna and Elena. We were tired, cold and wet and were made to feel at home, instantly. A very good restaurant was recommended for our first evening and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed for 5 nights and they were always available to answer any queries, the breakfasts were delicious and the bedroom and ensuite clean, spacious and with a lovely calm atmosphere. We were staying in Firenze visiting our daughter, and it was just wonderful after a busy day wandering around with her, for us all to return to Fiorenza and to have the use of the kitchen at any time of the day. Either to have a bite to eat or just make a cup of something. Fiorenza was the only Bed and Breakfast I found on the web that had these facilities available for their guests. Thank you so much, Giovanna and Elena, for making our stay so enjoyable. Your English is excellent and we enjoyed practising our Italian with you. We will definitely recommend you to everyone.

We can only echo the praise for Elena and her mother Giovanna, who greeted us on arrival. (Elena was at a wedding that afternoon.) But she had made advance reservations for us at the Ufizzi museum -- a must if you want to get in. Some practical considerations. It is a nice (downhill) walk into the city and reasonably close to the Boboli Gardens, 20 or so minutes. If you're in great shape, you might consider walking back. If not, take the #11 bus or (at night) the #68. During our stay, the last bus was around 11 PM. Buy an Agile card at the train station or at a Tabbachi: 10 rides for 10 euro. For a change of scene from the crowds in Florence, take the #7 bus from downtown to Fiesole. There's an interesting museum and a nice restaurant (Aurora) where the bus route ends. There's not much in the immediate area with respect to restaurants. There is a car rental location several blocks away. So, if you plan to drive from Florence, see if your rental agency has a site on Via del Gelsimino. If you're just going to be in Florence, a car would be more burden than convenience.

Elena and her mother Giovanna made us part of our family. Their warmth was welcoming and genuine. The Breakfast was hearty and delicous. The property exterior was beautiful. The room was the best on our entire trip. Words escape how wonderful this place is. It is convenience to the bus line and walkable to the Pitti Palace. If you have not stayed there, you are missing a delightful gem of a B&B.

Expléndido lugar para conocer Florencia y alrededores de la Toscana. Quedba algo lejos del centro (2KM) pero la parada de bus estaba a 2 minutos y el autobus 11 pasaba cada 10-15 minutos. Situado en una zona residencial muy tranquila que te permite descansar por la noche a pierna suelta!!!. Elena, la anfitriona, un encanto de mujer, muy gentil y agradable que está en todos los detalles. los desayunos se hacían en la cocina con plena libertad de movimientos, excelentes. Las habitaciones son muy amplias y los baños están muy bien. Recomendable 100%. Grazie mile Elena ed alla sua mamma per!!! VOLVEREMOS!!!!

Bed and Breakfast Fiorenza was a delightful surprise. It is located in a beautiful home with lovely grounds. Elena was so helpful. She made reservations for us at the Ufizi and the Academia Museums, made restaurant recommendations and reservations, gave us directions, and helped us navagate the bus system (which is very efficient and easy to use). We will return to this jewel of a Bed and Breakfast.

The facility to use the breakfast room to make drinks was wonderful, as was the garden- such an oasis of calm after the hectic city centre.If you enjoy a relaxing, comfortable, homelike environment, with Florence just a 15 minute walk away, then Fiorenza is for you!!

My wife and I really enjoyed staying at B&B Fiorenza. Elena is a terrific hostess. One of the thank-you cards we read said: Elena, you rock! Her breakfasts were the best of the 3 B&B's where we stayed at in Italy. We especially appreciated Elena's email confirming our arrival time beforehand and precise information on her B&B's location. The room was spacious, spotless and the bathroom was modern with all amenities. It was also nice to meet other couples during breakfast. It would have been nice to stay here a couple more nights! Thanks Elena for making us feel at home.

B&B Fiorenza is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac not far from the Boboli Gardens and the Pitti Palace. Elena is a charming, gracious, and warm hostess who made our stay absolutely stressless. She is a delight. Our room was restful, unfussy and airy, with beautiful natural light and a modern bathroom. Breakfasts featured fresh baked goods, fruit salads, yogurt, and other healthy and delicious local fare. Tea, coffee, and light snacks were available around the clock. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk through Porta Romana and across the Arno into the historic city center, and only occasionally resorted to the very good bus service. Elena recommended outstanding restaurants for us, and even made reservations for dinners and museum admissions. The only thing that made our stay just shy of perfect was less hot water in the shower than we would have liked, but that hardly dampened our enjoyment. We had a lovely week and regretted having to leave.

Having never been to this location before, we were quickly told how to catch the bus into town and back. We successfully did so. The owner is extremely helpful. The bus ride was only about 5-10 minutes from the hotel. We had a variety of delicious breakfast every morning. This was the only hotel on our three week vacation that offered us free use of the kitchen,refreshments and ice during our stay. It was great to return home hot and tired and fix a glass of juice or soda with ice. Owner spoke several languages.

My wife and I stayed at Fiorenza B&B for eight days before Easter. Elena was a delight, the perfect hostess. Our room was spacious by European standards and the bath was clean, modern and well-appointed. We especially enjoyed Elena's good breakfasts in the bright, sunny kitchen area, where there also was utensils (corkscrew, knives, plates, etc.) and a refrigerator. It is in a quiet neighborhood a ways from the center city and sights. Transportation by bus is possible, but the prime route by the Fiorenza stops running fairly early (9-ish)and it is virtually impossible to hail a cab after dark - everyone lines up at the train station and the taxis just run through there to pick up fares. That's a pretty small inconvenience, though, we'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Elena and Fiorenza highly recommended.

Our stay at the b&b was gorgeus. The place is marevellous, rooms are very cute. There's a wonderful garden outside. Breakfast was attractive... I have no positive adjects enough for describe it! There's just a tiny problem, to reach Firenze center you have to take a bus, it doesn't comes frequently, especially in summer, and on week-ends it desappears! But if you like walking, there's no problem at all.

For three weeks we traveled through the Tuscany and Umbria regions of Italy and of all the bed and breakfasts we stayed at, the Fiorenza was by far the best. We stayed here for 5 days to thoroughly explore Florence, Pisa, and Lucca. Our room and beautiful bathroom were spacious, very clean, and equipped with air conditioning. The room was immaculately cleaned everyday with nice touches of bottled water and candy by the bedside. Innkeeper Elena Particelli and her mother were very gracious and accomodating to all of our needs and questions. Both of them speak English as well as Italian. The breakfasts served everyday was different and quite delicious. Access to the kitchen is available to the guests any time of the day. This bed and breakfast is in an upscale neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of Florence's busy center. Access to the city from the Fiorenza is very easy. To get back and forth between the bed and breakfast, the city center, and the train & bus stations; all you have to do is go on bus number 11 which is within a short walking distance from the Fiorenza. After a long day of touring the different sites, it was such a relief to go back the the quiet and security of the Fiorenza. Make sure you go to the gardens of the front and back yards to enjoy its beauty and tranquility. What we enjoyed most was the relaxed setting of the breakfast room and talking with the other guests and Elena, which helped start off a good day in Florence. When we go back to Florence, we will definitely book our stay again at the Fiorenza for the price, the cleanliness of the room, the outstanding service Elena Particelli provided for us.

A lovely quiet home: birdsong in the middle of Florence. Elena was most helpful, with maps and bus routes. With a bus stop close by, everywhere in the centre of Florence was easily accessible. Get a carnet of 10 tickets from the tobacconist (past the bus stop) on your first day if you are staying 2 days or more: only 1 euro per trip per person. The buses can be late so if you have to get to somewhere for a set entry time leave about 45 mins at least to be on the safe side! Parking was fine on the street although we arrived back the first evening to find our car gone: it was the monthly day for sweeping the streets and Elena had to stop them from towing the car away by searching our room for the car keys to move it - she was very apolegetic but we were eternally grateful! Finding the house is difficult so these are our directions: turn into Via Grecchi from the main road; go up the hill, over the first little crossroads, and take the second (unamed) road to the right (if you get to the top of the hill you've missed it!); at the end of the road on the left is the B&B (nos 36-40)- ring the bell at the first entrance with the small B&B sign. Our room was lovely with big windows to fling open during the day, and airconditioning at night. There was also a mozzie plug-in device if needed.The bed was hard but most people like that (we don't). The breakfasts were fantastic, but the best thing was being able to make ourselves cups of tea in the evening in the little kitchen / breakfast room.We were very grateful to escape Florence at night, and had our meals at the Chalet Fontana, recommended by Elena. If you have a car, drive to the Piazza Michaelangelo to see in the sunset with half the youth population of Florence with spectacular views over Florence - there is a lovely bar with views and a pizzeria nearby.

Elena is a charming, most helpful hostess. Her B & B comprises several rooms, each en suite, in a gorgeous, early-20th century detached property - beyond the hubub of the City, in a lovely setting, with a large sloping garden, & established pines and shrubs. Elena spends time with her guests, talking about Florence (in charming English as well as Italian and French), helping with advice regarding things to see and to visit, arranging taxis when required. When I had my pocket picked she was urgently supportive in contacting Banks, etc. Travel by bus is attractive; the bus stop is about 1/4 mile away. We cannot imagine a more delightful B & B.

A little far from the centro, but situated in a quite residential area. To stay here for a bunch of days would be very nice with its confortable atomosphere. You can experience a normal life in Firenze! Elena, the owner, is very kind with whom you can be a good friend each other. Because of the firm security, staying this place would be felt peaceful especially for women. (I wanted to write this review in Japanese for those who do not use English!)

As you will see from all the other reviews on this site, Elena is extremely helpful and Fiorenza is comfortable and welcoming. It is a long way to walk into the centre of Florence but Elena gives comprehensive instructions in the use of the excellent and easy to use bus service. The bus stop to go into town is less than ten minutes walk away and the one when you return is even closer. The journey takes less than fifteen minutes. Tickets cost €1.20 if purchased in advance (many tobacconists and cafes sell them) or you can buy them from the bus driver for €2.00. Just remember to validate them by time stamping them at one of the machines on the bus - they can then be used for up to 70 minutes. Fiorenza is in a beautifully quiet area allowing you to enjoy a restful nights sleep after the noise and bustle of Florence. We stayed for two nights and will certainly be returning at some time in the future to enjoy more of Elena's thoughtful hospitality.

We stayed at the Fiorenza for 6 nights in early June. Although we had some reservations of staying at a place removed from the city centre, the Fiorenza proved itself worthy. By being located in a residential area, it provided a quiet setting, yet it was close enough to the city centre - 15 minutes or so by bus or to walk if you wished. Elena, the gracious host, was very helpful in assisting with bus schedules/routes, making museum reservations, recommending restaurants, etc. Our room was very spacious (as was our bathroom) and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were great (the best tasting croissants we experienced in all of Italy) served in a pleasant dining room with kitchen to which we had access to anytime if you wished to have tea, etc. in the evening. We will most certainly return here and would highly recommend this place. Thanks Elena. Andrew & Monika

Nella nostra vacanza in Toscana abbiamo pernottato in diversi B&B e locande. Ci siamo trovati bene in tutti. Elena Particelli ci è risultata tra tutti la persona più attenta, discreta e competente. Si vede che ci tiene: lo si nota da come si pone e dai particolari. Secondo noi uno degli aspetti importanti è la colazione, che Lei cura con qualità. Non da meno la cura delle stanze, semplici, pulitissime e funzionali. C'è una grande tranquillità in questo b&b, grazie anche al fatto che è in una zona residenziale limitrofa al centro. Forse un po' scomodo il parcheggio, essendo il b&b locato in una via "cieca" ma non è un grosso problema. I prezzi oggi, si sa, sono alti un po' per tutto, dappertutto, ma a parità di qualità/prezzo, il pernottamento qui li vale. Altri B&B allo stesso prezzo, abbiamo noi riscontrato, non offrono lo stesso livello di qualità. Elena è veramente una professionista. Grazie Elena, speriamo di ritornare presto. *********** Wonderful hostess, she provided maps and advice; 1st class B&B, beds very comfortable, good personal touches & details, room very clean and comfortable, excellent service, high quality breakfast.

Elena is a very gracious host. It is largely her personality that makes this place what it is. She provided beautifully kept rooms and gave us great directions on how to use the bus and suggestions on where to eat. Her B&B has an elegance to it that would bring me back. It is located in an upper middle class suburb nicely away from the dirt, noise, and commotion of the city center but is a 5 minute walk from the bus, which can take you into the city in 15 minutes or less. I had two small complaints, neither of which would stop me from returning. We took two rooms, but the hot water was not working in one of them. Given the immaculate condition of the premises, I'm sure Elena will have this problem fixed immeidately. The breakfast was a bit skimpy, but this may be because we required breakfast at an unusually early hour. It may also be that I find many Italian breakfasts to be on the light side.

Localizado cerca de Arcetri en un sector residencial tranquilo y en una casa antigua florentina con habitaciones renovadas, jardin interior y una bella vista a las colinas. Es lo que uno espera de un Bed&Breakfast manejado por su propietaria, con excelente acogida, desayuno delicioso con multiples opciones, variedad de tes, frutas, croissant fresco y mermelada hecha en casa. Elena esta siempre pronta a ayudar y sus recomendaciones sobre restaurantes son excelentes. He visitado varias veces Florencia, me he alojado en hoteles mas costosos en el centro de la ciudad, pero no dudo en decir que mi estadia en el Fiorenza ha sido la mejor.
