The location is very good. The owner is helpfull. Perfect place if you want to look around in Florence.
Located in the center of Florence, right on the river- easy to walk anywhere and only a 10 minute walk from the train station. Friendly, knowledgable staff and clean rooms.
Room was a little old-fashioned for our taste, but that's just a personal preference. Would be nice to have a private bathroom, but we knew what we were getting into, and we never had an issue having to wait for the bathroom or anything like that.
Great great location right in the city centre, ideal for getting to know the city
Bit expensive but thats florence!!
Location is ideal: within a short walk of all the main facilities and sights, but not noisy or too busy - just 2 bridges down from the Ponte Vecchio. Giovanni was welcoming and full of advice and information; he provided a good breakfast and I was able to use his PC to check my e-mail. Room and bed were fine.
I loved the breakfast and the laundry service. The room was clean and comfy and the location was unbeatable. Ideal.
nice and helpful staff, good location
This is a small hotel with a lot of personal touch to it. the host is very friendly and helpful. It is like staying in a friend's house. very good location, close to the station, the old bridge, the square...
The location of the accommodation was excellent, walking distance to everything in Florence. Accommodation was also clean and comfortable, and the wifi was very fast. Also the staff were very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay.
We had no trouble finding Franz house, easy 10 minute walk from the main train station. And 5 minutes walk to everywhere else we wanted to see. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the triple room with bathroom (room 1). The room has been was clean and very spacious.
The location is the best for sure, central location with many restaurants around. The accomodation is worth for what you pay for. Regarding the shared bathroom it was always clean and we could use it whenever we want. Breakfast was also really good with homemade crepes and croissants. We really recommend this place!
The TV wasn't working but we believe that Mr. Giovanni would fix it if we had told him about the problem.
The location is great, albeit a bit noisy if the window is open. Close the train station and all museums.
Breakfast is uninspiring.
Homemade breakfast! Crepe and omelette :) (But a small kitchen, so all guests can not eat the same time.) Helpful owner that gave several useful tourist tips of what to do in Florence.
Breakfast was lovely, lots of consideration was given when arranging. Room and toilet was clean and had a safe to keep personal belongings. Location was 8 mins from termini which was awesome. I felt it was easily accessible. Giovanni was very hospitable and recommended great sights to see in Florence. Overall it was great.
Probably one thing I didn't like but didn't mind was the traffic noise early in the morning. :)
The breakfast is great.
The manager is not quite friendly.
EXCELLENT LOCATION, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL OWNER, GOOD BREAKFAST TO VALUE, CLEANLINESS OF BED AND BATHROOMS, A/C IN ALL ROOMS. DONT EXPECT TOO MUCH WHEN BOOKING, THIS HOUSE IS A FLAT BUT ROOMS ARE WELL CLEANED ON DAILY BASIS, BUILDING AND ENTRANCE ARE WELL MAINTAINED, EXCELLENT CLASSIC LIFT.
NOISE FROM STREET BUT WHEN CLOSING ALL WINDOWS THEN IT IS OK. SOME ROOMS ARE SHARED WITH ONE BATHROOM BUT MAX TWO ROOMS PER BATHROOM.
Giovanni is the best host! He gave us tips on where to eat and what are the must see sights. The hotel is near the train station. Location is very convenient. Value for money. Very recommendable.
The location was great!
The room was very comfortable (with air conditioning) and yet the price is very reasonable. The hotel is near the centre and the railway station. Giovanni was discreet but very kind, helpful and knowledgeable about the city. The breakfast was superb (great homemade pancakes!). We'll definitely go back there.
Nothing. We felt lucky to have found Franz House!
This is a really fantastic place to spend a few days in Florence. The location close to the train station and a few meters away from the centre AND the river. Giovanni, the owner, made us feel very welcome, and told us the place to go and enjoy.
The noise outside during the night time
The room is clean and Giovanni is a very friendly man! He cooked our breakfast by himself which was delicious! Loved this place!
A little bit noisy at night, but can be fixed when window closed.
very close to all the famous tourist destinations. the room is very clean, comfortable bed and with good breakfast selection. Giovanni is very helpful in giving advice and directions.
Not really a problem but just a suggestion, maybe the breakfast can be served early for the visitors to start the day. we were not able to use the breakfast vouchers as the bakery is packed and when the guy saw that we are using a voucher, he just ignored us. we couldn't wait for long as we needed to catch up our train, we just left without the breakfast.
It was not very pleasant to stay here.
The owner did not take interest in serving breakfast that we paid for on the first morning. His behaviour was perceived as extremely rude. Uncomfortable beds. The showerhead was broken. First impressions are important - the first we saw on arrival was the red carpet in the reception room had a dirty black colour. It seems that maintenance of the facilities is not a top priority. The owner should take a trip to Amsterdam, and book into the Frederik Park House Hotel for a couple of days to witness and learn how a small establishment should be managed and maintained.
Very convenient location, close to Santa Maria Novella train station, and all main sightseeings, Arno river bank. Mr Giovanni in the reception is very helpfull, he helped me with my suitecase and repaired it, Room is small, but comfortable, bathroom is clean. Everything was nice and personnel is hospitable.
Very Friendly staff, most helpfull with information and breakfast was very good.
