Sandra and Giovanni were just the hosts that a bed and breakfast should have. Sandra speaks great English and was so helpful. We were only in Florence 2 days so it was critical that we got some help. Our room was great. We could not find the electric bus from the train station, but #14 worked great to get to to Beccaria and then it was an easy walk. Walking to Florence was easy. Can't think of anything to complain about. Loved it.

Simply put, this is a great hotel. Sandra and Giovanni couldn't be nicer or more helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious, the garden is beautiful, the breakfasts bountiful and delicious. The location is a bit distant from the RR station and the Duomo area but once you're familiar with Florence, the walk to the central part of the city is easy. The hotel's immediate surroundings are great--laundries, markets, pharmacies, etc. all close at hand. One restaurant in particular should be noted: Di Sardos is a short block and a half from the hotel and the food and service is the best we had in Italy.

My partner and I stayed for 6 nights middle of August. The best B&B we have ever stayed in, could not fault anything. Was given great assistance with everything ( including tour bookings) made the stay even better. Amazing local restaunants great food and prices. Supermarket just a short walk, lovely to be away from the town centre. We would recommended this place to everyone

I travelled around Italy June/July 2012 largely on my own. My budget for accommodation was around 60/80 euro/night. Orti di Cimabue was perfect for my needs. I stayed for 2 weeks. Situated about 2km (30min walk, there are buses)from the central railwaystation the surrounding cafes and retail shops did not reflect the normal tourist orientated rubbish. A very good supermarket is just down the road and a car rental outlet round the corner. My English speaking hosts were extremely helpful in every respect. As a non Italian speaker any suggestion as to what I was up to on any day was met with very clear advice on where to go, what to see, and also economical travel tips, connections, and internet search if necessary. Orti di Cimabue also has a sunny courtyard, still under development, which was great for an evening wine/beer for the wornout visitor to the city. I will take my family next time.

We got a really warmth welcome of the host and a lot of inspiration what to do in Firenze. Had a large room for two with spacious doors directly into this wunderful garden. It was really clean and the shower was fantastic. The place is really quiet. It is a bit to go into the city center, but we thougt it was really worth it and we would like to visit it again.

Florence is very easy to get around and although Orti di Cimabue looks like it is far away from the station and main town it's within walking distance. There are very nice cafes and restaurants close to the b&b that are reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend staying here. Sandra the host was also very helpful in giving tips and advice.

The place is a little out of the way, but totally worth it. Rooms are very large, comfortable, and Giovanni is a fantastic host. This place is a steal for what he charges. Tours of the surrounding areas are advertised- we took a day trip to Sienna for a very reasonable price. HIGHLY recommended

This is an excellent b and b in a quiet part of Florence. Room and en-suite were very clean and our host Giovanni brought breakfast of toast, croissant and coffee to our room, providing hot chocolate rather than coffee for my daughter on request. It is a good 20 minute walk to the centre of Florence but there is a bus stop nearby. Excellent value for money and would highly recommend.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here. The location is a little away from the city centre, but is still within walking distance for your daily treks. Take the bus if you have luggage. The breakfast was simple, but really fresh and tasty. It was delivered straight to our room each morning at the time we asked for. The bathroom and shower were great. The main host was away, and the host that covered for her spoke a little English so I can't really comment on the helpfulness of the staff. He really tried, but our Italian was pretty brutal (our fault, not his), so it was tough to communicate. There were maps and books available to us in the common room if we wanted. I would recommend this place to anyone. We had a really comfortable bed, a quiet room, and a great stay there. There is so much to see in the city that we didn't spend much time in the B&B. But we would definitely return in the future.

The hotel is more like a Pension than an hotel, family-run and friendly, the sort of place you'd go back to again just because the people running it were so nice. Giovanni was very welcoming, giving me a map of Florence, indicating the main sites to see, bus route from near the hotel into the centre, a nearby Co-op store and the two cafes (called bars) where I could take breakfast. Breakfast is included in the hotel price so if you want an early breakfast, you get a voucher to have it free in a cafe. If you have breakfast at 8.45 or later, Giovanni serves it in your room. In the cafe, you get a croissant and coffee; in the hotel, you get a toasted ham and cheese sandwich, a croissant, coffee and a couple of biscuits. The cafe I used, on the corner of via Cimabue and via Ghiberti, opened at around 7 am. Giovanni speaks Italian, some German and is learning English. His partner speaks Japanese and English. The rooms are on the ground floor, with just a couple of steps up into the entrance hallway. My room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The bins are emptied every day. Towels are changed if you leave them lying around. If you hang them on the rail, it means they're OK and don't need changing yet. The rooms have air conditioning which you can control yourself. The hotel is well situated to walk to all the major sites both north and south of the river in less than half an hour but is in a quiet street away from the noise of the tourist zone. The main noise I heard there was birds singing the dawn chorus. The C2 and C3 electric minibuses start/finish at Piazza Beccaria, which is a 4-5 minute walk from the hotel (cross the square through the tower in the centre). There is a Tabbacheria behind the bus stop where you can buy bus passes. The buses start running at around 7 am during the week and at 8.45 on Sundays and national holidays. The only drawback for me was that the hotel TV only shows Italian programmes, I don't understand Italian and I needed news a

Florence is a great city for walking. Orti di Cimabue is not right down-town, but a good location from which to explore the city and wander about. Giovanni and Marie were the best hosts that i had the pleasure of staying with in Italy. Definitely recommend this place! Great value for money.

Excellent B&B to stay. Close to everything- Not only the historical places but we even went to sunbathiing near the river! There were also great places to eat near the Orti di Cimabue.The owner was very helpful and kind and i loved the garden where there were trees. The room was very clean, beautiful and quiet. I definitely reccomand this place to have an unforgettable stay in Florence.

Orti di Cimabue is an excellent choice if you are looking for a quiet, clean, well-appointed room within 15 minutes' walking distance of the historic heart of Florence. Also good public transit connections, train & bus. Bike rental available. I stayed in a spacious single room, with a small but functional and squeaky clean bathroom - all equipment and furniture is new. Light sleepers should request a room away from the street side, since passing cars can sometimes be heard. Excellent value: rates are half of what I've seen advertised in basic hotels in the centre. My host was very helpful, very knowledgeable about Florence, and very professional. I received a great welcome. A simple Italian-style breakfast is included (cappuccino & pastry), and the owner can recommend dining options in the neighbourhood. I will definitely stay here again on a next visit to beautiful Florence.
