Old pipes that make strange noise even at night; the location is great when talking about getting to the sights, but it is close to kind of a junction and to some recycle bins that make noise at night.
Great location, clean room, helpful staff. All in all fair for the money.

The en-suite room had very noisy plumbing, every time you opened a tap, flushed or used the shower it would be accompanied by a loud noise from the water pump. I don't know how this affected other guest, but there was no way of not disturbing my partner during the night. Noise isolation from outside was very poor. Also it was a communal breakfast area with 6 chairs around one table. No cereal or fruit. This is a B&B and seemed popular with young travelers
The B&B owner was really friendly and told where all to go in Florence. The en-suite room was large, clean and had a very comfortable bed. Location by the river and a short walk from the station.

A little cold in the room. This is the only small problem~
The grandma and grandpa are very nice. They give us very useful information. And the location is very good!

A lot of traffic under your window, it becomes noisy quite early. The place has a few rooms in a former private apartment, it all is pretty tight and feels a bit cheap.
The location is good, the price also. You get your key and are independent.

Very confotable and clean. Giovanni, the owner, was very kind with the explanations of the city and places to visit.

The property is run by a man, and lacked a woman's touch, no flowers, character, etc. Breakfast first day included a plate of rather old looking salamini and cheese. We didn't touch it, but next morning it was back on the table. We stuck with toast, yoghurt and an egg. The location was noisy, at night we had to close the outer shutters, the double glazed windows and the inner shutters.
The best possible location in Florence and an easy 10/15 minute walk from the station. The wi-fi was the best I have ever had in a hotel, however, our room was right next to reception, which helped. There is a very good elevator up to the second floor, where the hotel is. The owner gave us a map and spent some time laying out a walking tour of the city.

Because near the road, a little disturb at night. And first day when we check in with Innkeeper's daughter, she said our order is not include breakfast. I showed my printed order to her then she said ok.
Franz House is near the river, I stayed 5 days and walk to all attractions by foot in 30 min. Innkeeper is an old, kind man. He gave us map and really good suggestion. And he also served for every day's breakfast. The room was cleaned every day.

The cost for doing laundry seemed high, so we didn't do any. Otherwise, everything was really great.
The location was very convenient - in the historic center with a sliver of a view of the Arno and also only 3 blocks from the Europa garage rental car drop-off. Our room Was spacious, clean and had a very high ceiling. Our host gave us a great summary of sites to see and how to get there. He was very organized with photos of the principal sites on the computer and had good suggestions for sandwich shops and gelato locations. Breakfast was ample. The shower/toilet facilities were only shared with one other person. It was really convenient to be able to use the refrigerator to store small food items. Fabulous value for the price.

This is a B and B, not a hotel, so the traveler should expect the B and B experience. The staff person (Mr. Giovanni) was helpful and courteous, and knoweldgable about the are around the hotel. The view was spectacular--the windows looked out over the River Arno. The room was clean and comfortable, and I was pleasantly surprised that there was a nice coffee set up, TV, etc. We paid for an en suite room, which was more, and were pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the bathroom. We got exactly what we wanted--a comfortable, clean place to stay that was centrally located. Mr. Giovanni went above and beyond--he let us keep our luggage there between the time we checked out and the time our train came, and later, when my wife had left something, he searched our room and helped us find things. A great value.

Clean but not super clean- needs new carpet. The guy watched me eat breakfast without speaking which I found a little creepy. I think he was just waiting in case I wanted something else but it was weird.
free breakfast, great wifi. Excellent location, I wanted to walk to the train station and it took 5 minutes.
