We loved our room,the stairs got a bit much by the third day,it would have been nice to have some natural air flow, if we stay there again we would ask for a room with a window , all in all it was a nice room to come home to after a busy day ,

Excellent directions from the train station and easy to find. Great breakfast and very attractive dining room. Wonderful view of the cathedral from the rooftop. Very attractive, clean room. There are steps to climb but we were informed of this and help was provided to carry luggage to our room. I believe this building dates to the 11th century and was built by the Madici's.

Excellent accommodation. Very friendly host. Breakfast was spent eating fresh pastries and looking at the spectacular view from the dining room. There is also a roof terrace accessed by a spiral staircase in the reception area. Beware that there are six flights of stairs but we are two older ladies in our sixties and it didn't bother us. Our host insisted on carrying our cases both up and down the stairs which would have been a bit of a chore otherwise. We did our research and found it quite easily: just cross the road from the station, turn left at Macdonalds and then keep going until you reach the street. Turn right (as you can go either left or right) and it is just past the clothes shop on the corner. It's a good location; just a short walk to most of the main tourist attractions. There was a wide range of ages staying at the same time as us so it would suit most travellers but perhaps not so good for those with babies due to the amount of steps. We would definitely stay there again if we returned to Florence.

We greatly enjoyed the cool breezes and the view of the Duomo from the rooftop terrace! Also we arrived early and the staff made every effort to get our rooms ready so we could drop luggage, shower, etc. We greatly appreciated that. Graet cappucino too!

Great location: 6 min walk to David, 5 min. to Duomo and Medici chapel, 15 min. walk to Uffizzi Gallery, Bargello and Pitti Palace, and right next to Mercato Centrale. Wonderful little terrace on the roof with tables where you can relax with a bottle of wine and a picnic from the market and see an amazing view of the Duomo! This was a highlight of our stay in Florence. Our room was bright and airy with a comfortable bed and amazingly quiet considering the noisiness of the neighborhood. Really thick windows that are virtually soundproof help alot! Nice staff, good breakfast. We are so glad we chose this hotel!

It is a very nice location, central in the city and it has a nice view at the terrace on the top. The people in the B&B were very nice. The only thing we didn't like was the noise at the street at night with an open window. But we think this was because of the fact that the B&B is in the centre of Florence.

Loved this place. Close to everything important, large well-appointed room and bathroom, soft beds, excellent breakfast and stairs to the roof for a view of the city!. Potential guests should know there it is a little hard to find (street numbers are out of sequence), there is no elevator (4 flights), and you may share a bath.

Once you got over the 5 story walk up, this is by far the best place we stayed during our travel to Italy. Perci was a great host. The view of the Duomo at breakfast, the spiral staircase to the rooftop terrace was unmatched by anyplace we stayed during our trip. I would definitely stay there in the future. Bravo Perci!!

Loved the view, the terrace is up a lovely curved flight of stairs. Went to market around the corner and bought wine, bread, olives, artichokes, egg plant, salami and had our best meal in Italy on the terrance one evening. This was the best place we stayed in Italy. Had to carry bags up 3 flights of stairs though.Very apartment like with small kitchenet, which suited us. Fair sized bathroom.

Our stay in this Hotel was a big pleasure.The only detail we found inconvenient was parking problems.We did drive from Rome and could find a spot to discharge our luggage.So we are made a few trips around the block to found a parking garage.But I think more experience travelers will know specific of that.We had a very clean and comfy room,delicious breakfast and city view from rooftop as unique as staircase to it.

We were assigned the self-contained loft apartment which had everything we wanted and lots of sytle and character. Percy was fantastic - highly professional and meticulous and very generous re use of internet and fax and his time. Breakfast setting and content gorgeous. Photo display captivating. Amazing roof top terrace with 360' views. Location great for train station and all sights. Best accommodation that we had in Italy. Highly recommended.
