Good location, easy walking distance to everything. Giana was the perfect host, very helpful and accommodating without being at all intrusive. It was great to find an elevator too. Room was very clean and serviced every day. Breakfast is a croissant and coffee in the café across the street. Couldn’t get the air conditioner to work, but needed to close the double glazed windows to shut out street noise. Double bed is two singles pushed together, but the mattresses sag a bit in the middle. There is a disused door between the room we had and the one next door and we were kept awake for two of the four nights we stayed by the TV in that room. Overall, however, I would recommend this place.

The rooms are exactly what we expected from the pictures - clean, elegant, very accommodating, especially the stylish teapot and IKEA coffee mug/plate set in each room, with abundant supply of tea/coffee bags every day, which made our stay a pleasant experience. I love the decors! Gianna does a good job designing every room with details that match the city’s renaissance flavor. Location is great, close to Piazza San Marco and Accademia Gallery. There is no breakfast but nearby there are bars and grocery. A self-service laundromat is just next door. I would recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for a hotel in Florence and appreciates the value of being treated special.
