Hotels in Florence are horrendously expensive, so we looked at other types of accommodation, such as B&B, residenzias, pensiones, etc. We found Guiciardini24 by pure chance. There were very few reviews on travel sites, but they all spoke very highly of that B&B. And rightly so! What a perfect little gem a few steps away from Ponte Vecchio, in Oltrarno. Dario, who is the owner and designer of the establishment, was a most welcoming, personable and helpful host. The B&B is totally new and frankly makes you feel that you are in a boutique hotel! We were overwhelmed… The decoration and lighting is very modern and in the best of taste (white, grey, black), combining glass, wood, metal, leather, and the room was impeccably clean. Don’t miss out on this B&B – we highly recommend it!
