Comfortable & clean enough for this type type of establishment of which there must be hundreds of similar in Florence. Note that it is NOT a B & B as most people understand it, nor a hotel but to my mind a simple 'Pensione'; unusual also in Italy that breakfast is extra. Note that the reception is on the 3rd floor of the hotel opposite, where the receptionist will then take you to the the 'pensione', also on the 3rd floor; lifts are very small. Great location, the ' old Bridge' referred to is better known as the 'Ponte Vecchio'; ok for a night or two but that's about all.

This was a lovely B&B in the heart of Florence. I would highly recommend it because of location and convenience. Never having been to Florence before, I had no idea just how perfect it was to be so close to the Ponte Vechio!! The B&B is located across from a hotel which provides reception for the B&B and a lovely substantial breakfast (unfortunately not included in the cost of the room). I would highly recommend this hotel!!

Had to call the button twice on the buzzer to reach the front desk which is at another building cross the street. They offer the service with surcharge to park my car overnight. Be aware that the voice from next room can be heard easily at night.

The location is perfect. It is right between the Pitti Palace and the Ponte Vecchio, with an easy walk within 10 minutes to the Piazza del Mercato Nuovo and Duomo. We had 2 rooms – 1 triple and 1 double and each room came with respective private bathrooms. Both rooms were clean and daily housekeeping was done (each evening we came back to tidy beds and folded towels). The surrounding was quiet at bedtime and there is a supermarket (for groceries such as snacks and drinks) within 5 minutes’ walk from this hotel. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly during our 2 nights’ stay there. Nearby, there is the Trattoria La Casalinga Via Dei Michelozzi 9 R (5-7 minutes walk). It is a local trattoria (not where tourists would normally dine). Although we have to wait for a table, we enjoyed the typical delicious Italian meals among the locals (we dined there for the 2 evenings of our stay). The only negative point is the sound proof of the rooms were poor and we could hear the conversation of the next room’s guests. Nevertheless, we highly recommend this hotel.

Place is in the historical center. Ponte Vecchio is just a 2 to 3 minutes walk away. There is a good grocery store 'conad' nearby. We did not opt for the breakfast. But there is a pasticceria right across the street where you can get good croissants and cappuccinos. Check in required to be done in a different hotel which is also right across the building. If you arrive at the Station after 8:00 pm do no bother to wait for public transportation, since there are none after this time. So we had to take a taxi to this place. Rooms are quite florentine and spacious. Since we travelled with our 5 yr old and a 1 year old baby, a microwave would have been perfect in the room. the staff in the the hotel where we checked in speak quite good English and helpful too.

Hotel location was perfect! A 100 yards from the Ponte Vecchia. Close to all the shops and surrounding areas. Very clean rooms and good size. Very small elevator, so if you have alot of luggage as we did, got to use the stairs. Great value for the price. Have to register at the La Scaletta Hotel across the street because Old Bridge is the overflo from that hotel.

Nice and silent rooms within walking distance of all the main attractions. We didn't get disturbed by the noise of the busy Via Gucciardini (the road to Ponte Vecchio) because the rooms are all located at the back or the side of the building. We had a nice breakfast (for 7€) with an extraordinary view over the city at the Hotel Scaletta which belongs to the B&B. Good price/quality for an excellent location.

The B&B was good... too bad the elevator was out of order... the view from the room was not good (a wall right outside the window)... the bathroom was small... the place was clean... the staff was very corteous... you have a lot of autonomy since the reception is in the hotel across the street... the view from the top of the hotel is awesome and you can see all of Florence (great pics)... don't have breakfast in the Pasticceria across the street (we paid 16.50 euros for 3 cappuccinos + 3 brioches!!)... great value for the money... the B&B is located 100 mt from Ponte Vecchio... if you want to have a great meal, walk past Palazzo Pitti to the "Trattoria Mangiatoia"...

This is posted as a B&B but does not serve breakfast and did not provide any reduction for this inconvenience. While it is clean and quiet, there was a large vapor streetlamp right outside our window and we were not able to close the window since it was 90+ degrees outside and the air conditioning was not turned on nor would the owner turn it on. This was not one of the worse properties we stayed at but it was close to it.

This appears to be just overflow accomodation for the much more convenient and pleasant La Scaletta. F. Old Bridge has no reception staff. Any questions have to be answered across the road. We needed to store suitcases for a day and this necessitated carting luggage across the road, up stairs and into the tiny lift. Early in the morning the entry gate to La Scaletta is not always open. We found the 2day experience frustrating and very inconvenient

Our room was nice enough, although smaller than others we stayed at for a similar price. The location was good. It was annoying that the reception and breakfast were across the street at the hotel. It was nice that we could use the facilities like the terrace and free internet, but its dissapointing to have to pay for breakfast at a "bed and breakfast" and to have to walk to another hotel to talk with the receptionist. On that note, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. She made reservations at the museums for us and gave us a recommendation on where to eat. We enjoyed our stay, but I would only recommend it if you are on a budget.

A really good place to stay if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep at night, which doesn't cost a lot of money. Our room was nice and clean with a really nice bathroom, nicer than the rest of the room actually, and it was more than enough for us. The airconditioning made a lot of noice, but since our room was facing the yard we didn't get any noice from outside. When we stayed there it was cheaper (5€ per night) to pay cash than with card, so bring a lot of cash, and definately ask for a room towards the yard!

We really enjoyed our stay at Florence Old Bridge. We were concerned about street noise, because of comments by others and location. Of all the places we stayed Florence Old Bridge had the least amount of street noise of any, almost none! The rooms were nice, clean and larger than most. The location is great for seeing the city center of Florence, nothing is more than a 5 to 15 minute walk from the hotel. Thanks so much for such an enjoyable stay! We have stayed at several other hotels in Florence and this was by far the best! At 65 euros per night this was a great find. We would stay again. It is not clear from the check in instructions that all check ins are at the La Scaletta Hotel # 22 across the street. Not a big deal, but nice to know if you plan to stay there.

This property is in a very good location, where major sites are within walking distance. Basically, I walked to everywhere from there. The room is very clean and exceptionally quiet, though it is inside a residential building on a very busy street. The drawback is it doesn't provide breakfast, but I still think the price is reasonable given its location. In fact, the cafe (called Miaoli) opposite the building offers very good coffee at reasonable price (1.1 euro), good for breakfast. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends. Pls remember check-in needs to be done in Hotel Scarlett, which is inside a building opposite to this property.

Everything as expected, after all I was looking for an affordable B&B. Do however watch out for the breakfast coupons for the pastry downstairs... it means you can have what listed for €6 instead of the highly overpriced tags on the menu (not a very good deal anyways). Staff was extremely courteous for allowing the entrance to the city's centre (restricted traffic)!!

Yes, this is the first time we've stayed at the Florence Old Bridge. "Bed & Breakfast" is a little misleading as there is no included breakfast. Our stay here was excellent and comfortable with the surprise of a courtyard terrace... though that was a mosquito magnet which injured a couple of us pretty badly. Honestly, my only complaint is the lack of fresh towels until after the 3rd day by hotel policy. We stayed 3 nights on the towels we had and it would been nice to at least have a couple fresh ones near the end when things were just damp and unfresh.

The only thing that I did like about this booking is that we had originally booked 2 triples. We had someone who backed out last minute but Venere said that we couldn't change from two triples to a double and a triple. We would have to cancel our reservations and rebook. That was VERY disconcerting since we were leaving in two weeks! Actually, it was just rediculous. We found a way to work around it withOUT the help of Venere, otherwise it's a good site.

This hotel was in an excellent situation. Right in the Ponte Pecchio area, surrounded by shops, restaurants, bars etc. Yet was quiet at night! There is no reception as such as it is in fact an annex of the main hotel ,over the road. But , the staff are there in the mornings until 2pm. A very warm welcome greeted us here. The room was spacious ,furnishings were rather dreary( but given the benefits of this great little place , who cares?) very secure too. I have walking problems at present and this hotel was excellent due to its central location. Would happily revisit.! Excellent!

Well located 100 metres from Ponte Vecchio. While this is simply a room + shower/toilet (ie: no breakfast facilities) this is not a problem as there are many places to grab a quick bite to eat fro breakfast just across the road. One thing for improvement is that it needs coffee/tea making facilties in the room (none provided at present).

Das Hotel hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Lage ist äußerst zentral und man kann wirklich alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß erreichen. Das Personal ist hilfsbereit und freundlich. Unser Doppelzimmer mit Bad (Raum D) befand sich im 3. Stock und war trotz des Rummels auf der Straße erstaunlich ruhig. (Die Fenster zeigten zum Hinterhof.) Die Klimaanlage funktionierte gut. Sowohl das Bad als auch das Zimmer waren durchschnittlich sauber, da jeden Tag das Zimmermädchen kam. Wir haben uns außerdem sehr sicher gefühlt, vor allem auch wegen der Kameras, die in den Fluren installiert sind. Das größte Problem war für uns das Auffinden des Hotels, da wir nicht wussten, dass es in Florenz Hausnummern mit drei verschiedenen Farben gibt (schwarz, blau, rot.) Jede Hausnummer kann demnach drei mal vorkommen. Wir haben also sehr lange nach dieser schwarzen 22 suchen müssen. Wer dieses System kapiert, hat schon mal ein Problem weniger. Insgesamt haben wir uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und können es mit bestem Gewissen weiter empfehlen.

My husband and I stayed at the Florence Old Bridge for 4 nights in March 2005. Cosimo, the proprieter, was welcoming and very helpful upon our arrival and throughout our stay. He even sent me train schedules from Rome to Florence to help us plan our arrival. Our room was spacious and very quiet, despite the busy street from which you enter the building. The rooms were very clean, with a comfortable bed, and plenty of room for our luggage. The only aspect of this B&B that I would mention to people is that all of the rooms are off of one central hallway, so you can hear the sounds of people coming and going, but this wasn't an issue for us. We loved the location of the B&B--away from the masses of tourists on the other side of the Arno, yet a quick walk to all of the sights. I will definitely stay at FOB again--than you Cosimo!

The likeable stuff was very helpfull. They sent fast and good information about train connection from Bologna to Firenze. And they were very flexibel when we arrived with delay. Avoid to sleep in room 1 or 2, they are at the very busy street.

Very close to old bridge and hence all other scenic spots in walking distance. Very helpful staff with good English. Very quiet at night and plenty of restaurant nearby .It will be perfect if a small electric hot water kettle is provided (very essential for oriental tourists! believe me )

Well I was a bit suspicious of the price and the photo. I had never booked an online hotel room before and never one in Florence. The Florence Old Bridge is indeed in the very heart of the City. It is a stone throw away from the Ponte Vechio and not far from any of the museums or shopping areas. The room itself was clean and the maid came each day to make the bed and clean the room. My cousin came down from Switzerland and had the room next to me. Her room which was the larger had a lovely fireplace, sumptuous bathroom and tub and a little balcony. The views from the room are nothing special----the backside and balconies of others apartments. This, however, was a good thing for although I was in the heart of the city. The room was quiet and I slept well. There was one day when the heat went out due to a problem in the whole building. Cosimo took care of things and was very understanding and accommodating and by the time we came back from traveling arround the City, the problem was fixed. I would recommend Florence Old Bridge to anyone who is looking for a moderately priced yet lovely stay in the heart of Florence.

Lo consiglio a chi vuole visitare Firenze arrivando in treno in quanto il parcheggio è un po difficile trovarlo. Molto vicino a Palazzo Pitti e Giardini di Boboli da una parte e dall'altra pochi minuti a piedi dal centro (Signoria, Uffizi etc.). In pratica è a 20 metri da Ponte Vecchio sul lato Oltrarno.

Camere pulite, posizione ottima, buon rapporto prezzo/servizio. Cosimo è molto cortese e disponibile, anche le indicazioni delle osterie dove andare a cena sono molto valide. L'unico problema sono i garage per l'auto che sono carissimi!!

The place was brilliant. I will recommend anyone to go there. I will be definitely going again. BUT, do not take a car. There's no parking. Else, you can never get such a neat place like this so central,affordable,clean, spacious,friendly and helpful staff. Will even recommend my parents to go there.

We are very pleased with our accomodations. There were three of us... My sister, my niece and myself. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom and room itself were spacious enough for three women. Because we were three women alone... we especially liked the secuirty measures and the nearness of the hotel to the Uffizi Museum and other tourists sites. The hotel staff were knowlegeable and very helpful. When we asked for suggestions for restaurants and explained we would prefer places that were not touristy... where we could have experience of eating authentic Florentine meals ... several suggestions were forthcoming.... all of which more than met our hopes and expectations. One minor less than five rating... The rooms were air conditioning.... but being from Lousiana and Florida... (Our fault) we were expecting.... AIR CONDITIONG .... cool to cold. If we had realized we could not adjust our air conditioning to really chill the room... we probably would have asked if a room with a balcony was available. Again this was just a minor problem... and we adjusted by turning off the air conditioning and opening the windows. A more serious concern for a native Louisianian or probably anyone who is addicted to coffee.... although the web site indicated bed/breakfast ... this service was not available..... there was no problem with no breakfast.... but having to get dressed and wait until at least 7:30 am to get coffee almost made me crazy. Even though there is a cafe directly across the street it did not open until 7:30 am. This problem could be easily solved with a coffee machine. We stayed in a similiar rated hotel in Nice. Hotel Rex and that is how the problem was solved. The Hotel Rex... had a coffee/expresso machine. The coffee/expresso was ok... not the best... but if you are a real caffine addict... it took the edge off until I was ready to dress and leave. Would I return to the Old Bridge Hotel again. Yes. I would probably just buy one of those

Florence Old Bridge is an excellent place to stay. The location is perfect, and since the rooms are in the back of the building, there was very little street noise. Our room was beautiful, full of antique furniture and a great modern bathroom. The staff was so friendly and helpful, not only did they make reservations for us for the Uffizi Gallery; they helped us rent a car and recommended the best restaurant located just a block away. The walls are a bit thin however so we heard many a phone conversations from the room next door. However, I would recommend this place to everyone I know. It is an excellent value.

Overall our stay at Florence Old Bridge was very pleasant. The directions given by Cosimo was right on. It was only a 10-15 minute walk from the train station (but on unevenly paved streets which makes hauling luggage slightly difficult). The room was clean and there was enough space for three single beds. Since our room did not face the street, it was quite quiet. However, since it was during the Euro Cup, and people in the rooms facing the streets did not have very good sleep due to the cheering and honking of cars on the street. But I guess it's not a usual occurrence. The only thing that we didn't expect was that towels were changed every three days, but there is a sign behind the bathroom door saying if you leave the towels on the floor it will be changed, etc. It created the confusion that maybe if we needed to, the towels can still be changed more frequently. I threw some used towels on the floor but the maid actually picked them up and hung them back up. Since I didn't want to use towels that have been on the floor, I went and asked for new towels, explaining the confusion and apologizing. The man in the office begrudgingly gave us three new towels, but made a comment to the effect of "go to a four star hotel if you want new towels everyday" which I thought was an unnecessary and inappropriate comment. Otherwise I have no complaints about this place. In fact, the air conditioning in this bed and breakfast (but it doesn't really include breakfast) was more adequate than other places we have stayed in Italy. For 100Euros per night for three people, it's definitely a good value for money.

Hi! Although this is place (and others) are in the category of B&B, this is not a B&B as you knew in Irland, I mean, this is a B-without-B.Also you must know that you're paying for being near the city center. The employee who gave us the welcomin was very tricky about the time of the checkin, because he was not at the B&B all day long. The room was nice, althougn the air conditioning was not working at all, for a 2-days stay is very good. Thanks. Oscar.

We lucked out and got a suite, b/c of avail. However, for 3 people the rooms are small except for the one we stayed in. We stayed an extra night and wouldn't have known any better except that we had to move rooms. The Service is excellent and would recommend the accomadation to a friend traveling with 2 not 3 unless they specifically ask for the S room on the 3rd floor

This place was very nice, and Cosmo at reception was very welcoming. However, the plumbing needs work. If someone had a shower or used the toilet in another room there was what sounded like massive explosions coming from inside the walls. Not the easiest place to sleep. However, it was VERY close of the action of Florence and overall I recomend it.

A sink came away from the wall by accident during the stay. The manager acted like a complete baby and totally overeacted which ruined what would have otherwise been a great stay. And he charged us 30 euro extra which left an extremely sour taste

This is a set of rooms in a residence, on the third floor like a suite. We arrived around 8:30pm, and the person was gone. They usually are there between 9am and 7pm or so, but they left a message for us to call and came within 15 minutes. Luckily the manager of the restaurant next door was very friendly and when we asked ot call, made the call himself. For the practical information, we were a bit confused by the numbers on the street as it goes up, 10 to 20, then 24, 26 etc... then there is a 110 and then it goes down and there is the #22 we were looking for. Basically, between 20 and 24 is an alley, and 22 is further down the street, so don't be surprised if you don't find it at first. Other than this detail, the place was great, we had a key to go in and out at will, it's a few yards from the old Bridge and the city center, and pretty cheap compared to what we spent in Rome for a much smaller place. Very good spot I would recommend.

The only thing he did not like and I think it is a pity......they charge you (even if the rules of venere.com do specify the contrary) the first night as soon as you book on the website and give you the money back 15 days later...they said 'we did not charge you...it is just to try your bank card???. in the end, no problem but a bit wierd!!!

The Florence Old Bridge is a fantastic value. No, it doesn't have many frills, such as a hair dryer or safe, but for the money it offers a large, clean room and a wonderful location. My only complaint is about the bed -- two twins pushed together, very uncomfortable. But for the money paid (and what we've seen in other parts of Florence and Venice), we felt lucky to have found this place.

Well located to most major attractions. Walking was our preferred method of getting about and it was easy to get to everywhere we wantedt to go. It is a shame that breakfast cannot be included on site to make the package just about perfect. Our host, Andrea, was very helpful and considerate. Security was good and the immediate area was pleasant although busy with tourist and local traffic.

Excellent situation. I would advise that you insist on paying at check-in. I didn't want to hang around on my last day and reception wasn't manned at the advertised time. I had to 'phone and then wait for someone to arrive some 20 minutes late. Other than this minor hitch , it was very good. P.S. Can't rate public areas 'cos there are none!

Left to do your own thing, clean, aircon and very central. Thanks Florence Old Bridge. Owen Evans (and Wifey)

The rooms at The Florence Old Bridge was as good as any three star hotel that I have stayed in during many past visits to Italy, very clean, lovely bathroom and the added bonus of good air conditioning which is not always availble in 3 Star Hotels. So although the property only has 1 star rating it really exceeded what I had imagined. The location was excellent and the staff very helpful. Will be making a visit again!

Eventho' this apartment B&B is in the heart of the city, the service was not up to standard. There is no parking facilities and can be costly parking in Florence. The room was drafty and the extra bed was uncomfortable. I wouldn't recommend this place. There's no breakfast provided in the price. It was difficult to locate this place.

We had a wonderful stay here. The location is excellent, just off Ponte Vecchio, there are fabulous nearby local trattorias. It was not a problem that breafast was not included because there are so many bakeries & cafes closeby, you can get a latte & a croissant for less than 2E. In LA, you can't even get a latte for that much.

The location is excellent for the price, just on the other side of the Arno within walking distance of old Florence. The room was furnished in old-fashioned European style and had a large bathroom with a shower. This is not a hotel in the traditional sense.It is really an appartment that has been turned into a bed and breakfast without the breakfast. There are no ammenities and the front desk is only staffed during the day. You get a key to the front door and the appartment.We enjoyed our stay at Florence Old Bridge and would recommend it to travelers who enjoy being independant.
