Just berakfast, all I want is some bread en chease, a boiled egg, no pancakes or wathever, just healthy food.
It was a quiet oasis in a busy city, but at the same time a great location within walking distance to all of the beautiful sites of Florence. Giovanni is a great source of information, very helpful and friendly.
The hotel location is really good，nearby train station，it's easy to visit many famous place just like Florence Cath，Ponte Vecchio and so on.The host is nice man，to enthusiasm recommend famous place and food，in one word，it's good hotel equal that price.
in the historical centre, very detailed instractions from the owner about the city, frigo in the hall, free coffee and water facilities
all was great!!!
We were only at Franz House for a one night stay and hoped to see as much of Florence as our time allowed. On our arrival Giovanni gave us a city map and outlined a route to take in all the major sights, the best ice cream shops and what is probably the best sandwich shop in the whole world. We pretty much followed his suggestions and don't believe his itinerary could be bettered. Franz House is on the fringe of the old city and close to one of the old bridges across the River Arno. It is 5-10 mins walk from Florence's main railway station of Santa Maria Novella and all the major sites are not much further away.
Shared bathroom facilities are always an inconvenience.
Location - close to train station and within walking distance of all the sights Giovanni - provided excellent guidance for places to visit and to eat. We did not go wrong with any of his recommendations! Cleanliness - our room was very clean.
At first, I thought the street noise would bother me. But, it was a non-issue after our days of exploring the sights, and checking out Giovanni's restaurant recommendations. I fell asleep quite easily every night, while leaving the window open to the noises from the street.
Easy walk from station. Triple room quirky, huge & overlooked river!
Location,wifi ,luggage hold, printing service.
BB is in satisfactory condition but the kitchen needs repairing .Lobby,the kitchen and the table with breakfast needs women`s hands .
Franz House is very close to all the famous tourist destinations and pretty close to the train station (about a 10-15 minute walk). We had the room at the very end and it was quiet and clean. AC and wi-fi worked great. I would stay here again.
The only down side to Franz house is the shared bathrooms. The Shower was a garden tub setup and not the most user friendly. If you are ok with a shared bathroom then you would enjoy the stay here.
Mr. giovanni is really nice. He will give you a florence map and a walking tour for the city as soon as you arrive. The property is very close to the train station. Breakfast is simple but quite good and you can sometimes have scrambled eggs or nutella crepes cooked at the time just for you. Wifi works really well
Street can be quite noisy in the morning as very busy area of florence. Otherwise, perfect!
Position position position in a grand old building very pleasant experience
The location was great for what we wanted to do. Giovanni provided excellent insight to city highlights and how to approach our walking tour. He was obviously fighting an illness and being a one man show it put a strain on him but he hung in.
Sharing a communal bath is always a challenge but this one needs more than a little attention to cleaning...but it worked. The breakfast was not quite what was advertised but it met our needs. In retrospect, a couple more Euros would have yielded the same meal or better with magnificent views...opt out of the breakfast and do it right! We were blindsided by the CASH ONLY requirement for 2 Euro per person per night fee...we could not include it with the card payment and found ourselves 2 Euros short. Giovanni accepted what we had and we left somewhat embarrassed.
Vert good location and very warm welcome
a bit noisy by the proximity of the crossroad
Location, friendly host, breakfast included, good wifi signal
good position, spacious bedroom, good breakfast. Owner is a pleasant man who really likes to help his guests with any problems and ideas for visiting.r
bit noisy outside, but shutters help a little.
- Location - Price - Friendly staff - Fridge with cold beer & water in the "lobby" - Intro about the city and a great 2 hours walking tour explained on the day of arrival. - WiFi works
- Shower water pressure could be improved - Street noise (close the windows and bring your ear plugs - works great)
The location is very good. The owner is helpfull. Perfect place if you want to look around in Florence.
The location is super convenient! Only 10 min walking, could reach the central station or the ponte vecchio! The room is comfortable, with beautiful river view outside! The boss is super nice and friendly!!! Very wonderful impression for me in Florence.
not found yet! : P
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.
