The bathroom is upstairs. You have to negotiate a narrow spiral staircase, not ideal during the night or for someone with partial mobility.

The quality of this B&B is truly outstanding. I could not have asked for more. The location is excellent and the quality of the service offered is far beyond what I expected for the very reasonable price. I will definitely stay at this B&B whenever I can.

Service is fantastic. Location is great for walking to sights. Breakfast is a good size, above average compared to what we got at other places in Europe. The accommodation is very big and roomy. The traffic outside is easy to hear but once you fall asleep it's ok. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this place. Thanks Gianna!

The apartment is quite unique and a nice change from a nondescript Hotel room. The air conditioning worked well in the hot weather and enabled us to close the windows at night as it could get quite noisy outside. The breakfast was good and plentiful and Jane was attentive but unobtrusive and provided friendly service and advice. We would stay again if we return to Florence. Her assistance in booking the galleries in advance and avoiding the queues was invaluable

I traveled all over Italy for 10 days, and this was my favorite B&B. The room was spacious,clean,and quiet. There was a stocked fridge with yogurt, milk, juice and a cupboard filled with cereal,tea, coffee,drinks, and a bowl of fresh fruit on the table. After my daughter and I had settled in, the owner knocked at the door and asked what time we would like breakfast delivered. I thought it was all in the kitchenette area already. The next morning,promptly at 8:00 a.m.,the owner brought in two pitchers,one of fresh coffee and one of steamed milk,2cups,saucers,plates,placemats,and silverware and a pretty wrapped package that turned out to be a generous assortment of fresh pastries. What a delicious treat. One morning as I was getting ready to explore Florence on my own in the pouring rain, the owner offered me an umbrella, and helped me figure out the best routes to where I wanted to go. He was a delight and so plesant. I would recommend this B&B in a heartbeat! I loved it!

Gianna's is just the loveliest B&B I've ever stayed in. We were treated as guests in the owner's home, which is an absolutely gorgeous place in a very old building but with modern furnishings and facilities. There is only one room, which is actually more like an apartment, on two levels so big and spacious, with a bathroom upstairs and a kitchenette as well as a beautiful bed-sitting room. The owner was helpful with advice about where to eat and what to see in Florence, and brought us delicious pastries for breakfast each morning, as well as stocking the kitchen with fruit, yoghurt, juice, cereal etc. Really friendly and solicitous (though we were independent with plenty or privacy). If you're looking for a bland corporate hotel, this isn't the place; there is no TV or conventional hotel facilities. But if you want really memorable, unique local flavour, it's almost too good to be true.

Gianna's is a comfortable and hospitable B&B, ideal for booklovers and just a few minutes' walk from the sights and museums of Florence. The owner Jane was very helpful with booking tickets, instructions on how to find the B&B and local information such as restaurants and our onward travel. There is some street noise but with earplugs it didn't disturb me at all at night.

Our room at B&B Gianna's was very large, with an additional bed upstairs in a loft area,where the bathroom is also located. The bed was king sized and extremly comfortable. There is also a tiny kitchette in the room where yougart, juice and water was supplied. A large breakfast is provided, also excellent. There is some street noise at night, but we still slept soundly. Our stay here was excellent. I highly recommend this B&B in Florence.

This is special B&B having only one big room. Room equipped with upper gallery utilized for bathroom and 3rd bed. We felt at Gianna's like at home. Though it is located in the 3rd floor w/o elevator, it was not a drawback because John took our heavy luggae alone. Breakfast was very rich, all types of fruits, vegitables and cheese accompanies with very tasty coffee, tea and breads. Location is excellent and John helped us to manage in the city.

This was an excellent B&B. Jane and her husband were very accommodating and very helpful in providing advice and assistance (including booking tickets for the Uffizi for us in advance of our arrival in Florence). The small kitchenette with its refrigerator and electric kettle with tea and coffee facilities was particularly welcome and the room had not only the normal bed and table but also a couple of armchairs. The room does not have a television (though most hotels in which we stayed in Italy only had CNN in English anyway) but there is a comprehensive library in the room with both fiction and non-fiction and that more than sufficed for the time we spent in the room. The B&B is conveniently located about 10 minutes walk from everything. We would definitely stay there again.

Jane Simpson did an excellent job of welcoming us and prviding an excellent place to stay and outstanding breakfasts. There is nothing at the address to indicate the location of the bed and breakfast which caused some confusion since there are three other people at the same address. Fortunately, having read the previous reviews, I remembered Ms. Simpson's name being mentioned. This would not be an ideal location for less ambulatory people. It is located on the 3rd floor of a building with no elevator, The bathroom is in a loft above the bedroom on a rather narrow stair. Location is very good. Close to the Academia and about a 15 minute walk to the Uffizi and the train station. Overall, I was very pleased with the experience and would rate this a very good value.

If you chose to stay at Gianna's you can be sure that everything will be cared for. It'´s an excellent location for all sightseeing activities. There's a friendly atmosphere and Mrs. Simpson is a native English-speaker so there's no communication problem. It's the best accomodation you can get for this price, better than any hotel! Enjoy your stay...

Our stay at Gianna´s can´t be better. Even though we arrived at complicated dates (new year´s eve), Mrs ferguson gave us some useful advices about restaurants, masses and she even booked for a couple of museums. Breakfast was really good (just what we ordered) and there are a lot of nice details in the room like fresh fruit, cakes, chocolates and a lot of books about Florence and art.
