We liked this B&B, the room, the helpful, friendly service and that it was very quiet.
Location, understanding and courteous owners.
Clear directions to the hotel from the train station would be useful. (Take bus 6B from the stop on the opposite side of the road in front of the main train station and get down at Niccolini or Azeglio stop)
Ari was an absolute pleasure to deal with and gave us lots of good advice and help with restaurants, bookings etc. A pleasant room with a street view.
Clean and location is good
Excellent location, close to the Dome, close to the centre, quiet at night but in walking distance to everything interesting. Also, very safe area. The owner is very helpful and friendly, the coffee is good and strong in the morning. We received a map and indications on how to get to all the circled areas on the map. We managed to see almost everything in 2 days and spent one day at San Gimignano outsite of Florence. Great trip, I would recommend the B&B without hesitation!
Great is location and close (10 minute walking) to the old city centre and all it's attractions. Good dining and drinking options nearby. Simple but suitable breakfast each morning and Ari was always willing to assist with any query we had. Comfortable rooms and the aircon in the bedroom was greatly appreciated.
The room was clean and comfortable. The wi-fi was generally good. The breakfast was simple but it was nice to have something simple to start the day when we were eating out every day and with the culinary delights of Italy! Ari, the guy in charge, was amazing. He was always friendly and even printed out two things for us when we asked him. The B and B was in a good area and within walking distance of a lot of things. I would definitely recommend it to friends!
The buses in Florence are a little confusing. Sometimes you need to get a bus if you're tired or want to go to places which are a bit further away. The buses can be caught from outside Santa Maria station, just left outside the station. Be careful with the letters on buses - make sure you get the ones the B&B suggest!
I thought this was a terrific little find, slightly out of the eye of the "Duomo" crowds (within 10 min. walk) and perfectly accessible to all major sights. Friendly staff, simple breakfast, good WiFi. Would definitely recommend!
The location was great and the room was clean and tidy. However, Ari made the experience even more worthwhile. Very chatty and helpful and his insight to Florence attractions was very helpful
To be honest there was nothing to complain. The room facilities including the air conditioner and bathroom facilities all worked without any issues
Wifi connection was very good. Staff was helpful but not 24 hr there so make a note of that Basic stay, really nothing fancy (good shower, nice bed) Felt safe (inside actual residential building, with like three doors)
A bit of a walk to center (about 15 mins) but it's really ok No frills stay (note they don't have hard soap that hotels usually provide, just two bottles which I guess can be used for any purpose).
I had a great experience at Le Contesse , specially Ari who was very nice, very courtes and helpful. I recommend this place and my next time in Firenze I will go again to this beautiful and quite place. Ari , ti ringrazio ampiamente la tua gran gentilezza e a presto!!!!!....
Very clean, air con is very powerful so will keep you very cool during the summer nights, great walks to different areas of the centre, great coffee during breakfast and wonderful hosts! And you get a free map!
Nothing we didn't like, very happy with everything!
Great location Lovely décor in rooms Friendly staff
Florence is beautiful but tourists are squeezed for every last penny.
No fridge.Reservation is not 24 hours.
Room was big, air con, friendly staff, comfortable bed, location was near sightseeing
Breakfast could have been better: some selection of meats/cheeses would have improved it.
Outstanding service, great location, clean and comfortable. A superb place to stay and I would recommend it without any reservation whatsoever!
Great location, very good price
Breakfast wasn't bad, but could be better
The B&B is about 15-20 mins walk from the train station, on the 2nd floor of a building. Me and my friend arrived earlier in the morning and our room was not ready yet. The guy at the reception was pretty kind to us, he let us left our stuff in the living room so that we could do the sightseeing without the luggages, and he gave us a map and highlighted the popular sites that we should visit. We had a double twin beds room with a private bathroom, not big but quite clean and comfortable, there was a tv and ac, so we had everything we needed to stay over the night, was good value for money!
Breakfast was so so, not much to eat.
Good location (15min walking from Duomo), friendly staff, clean room, quiet neighbourhood
Basic breakfast (coffee and sweet bread with jam)
It's a bit of a walk from the Duomo but it's by no means out of the city centre. We enjoyed our stay, it was very clean and comfortable. Aircon was great and the staff were most helpful. The bathroom was external to the room so that was a bit awkward but it was very large so no complaints. I would definitely recommend this place!
Our room was by the entranceway so it was noisy when people were coming in or out, or we're having breakfast. There was no sleeping in once breakfast started. I guess that nothing can be done about this but maybe a sign for other guests to remind them that there are rooms beside the kitchen?
Great location. Convenient to sites in Old Town but the bus system was difficult to navigate to go further out of town.
WiFi was not the best connection and would often disconnect. We had to leave earlier in the morning than when breakfast was served at 8 am so it would have been nice to somehow shift the breakfast to an earlier hour.
breakfast maybe could improve
Small homelike hotel (I guess just 3 rooms) in 10 minutes from Duomo. Staff is friendly, breakfast is usual for Italy - coffee with croissants/cookies.
This is a great gem. An affordable hotel in a historical center of Florence with a great atmosphere. My most important criterion is cleanliness and this hotel really stands out. I'm used to staying in large hotel chains when I travel for business, but I am not willing to pay for these hotel chains when I travel for leisure. The hotel has the quirks that go with being in a center of a European city, but they are not inconvenient. For instance, there is no elevator, but it's only one floor and the owner is very helpful with luggage. The owner is extremely helpful, accommodating, and service-oriented. I emailed him a day before my arrival and he was more than willing to meet me before the check-in time so that I could leave my luggage in the room. He made the experience very enjoyable for me and my husband. It was our anniversary and the owner left us in the fridge a bottle of Prosecco to help us celebrate. The hotel has lots of great things that one often doesn't find in a typical us hotel chain. These are free wi-fi (which works great), simple but tasty continental breakfast, a cozy atmosphere. We loved it and would stay again.
The location is great for visiting the major historical sites and good restaurants. The room was roomy, comfortable and clean. Ari speaks good English and very accommodating.
There is no 24 hour reception which can be a bit inconvenient at first.
