if i have to mention ons thing, the bathroom and especially the shower is really tiny. But on the floor plan i notices we did have the smallest bathroom!
the bed is really good, everything is really clean, you only have to climb one stairs and it's pretty quiet.

Our room had the external bathroom which meant walking past the breakfast area in order to access it.
The fact that the Contesse was within walking distance of all the key places made it a great base. We were very well looked after, including when neither of was feeling well when Ary was very caring and concerned. If we return to Florence we would definitely use this again.

Amazing staff members. Ari was very helpful giving us information and keeping us comfortable.

I have no dislikes about my stay and probably for my second trip will choose the same place again. I have read other reviews for a lot of places and don't understand why: - people complain about mosquitoes (there is a river flowing through Florence!) but we found only 2 of them in 5 days. - people complain about room/bathroom size (2 people should be fine, indeed not suited for soccer/tennis/basketball matches). - people complain about noise in the morning (like in any city? literally in the middle of it?) which was really low due to thick walls and good windows. - people complain about cold/heat - there's an AC unit that takes care of both problems. - people complain about TV size (I bet you can find a lot of stuff to watch in Florence rather than a screen) yet I think you can even find an IMAX if you desperately need a movie.
Perfect location, you can reach everything on foot, supermarket across the street, noise was not an issue. Room (#1) was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was basic but good (yogurt, milk, cereals, cheese, salami, jam, butter, bread, coffee/tea, some fruits, etc.). The host speaks fluent English, very helpful with advice, recommendations, reservations, and so on. Really, we liked everything, and we're going to go back.

Not bad as such but worth knowing that no.3 on the street has 2 doors when guests arrive!
Great location,free wifi,safety and atmosphere

Breakfest is nice but very simple. The room is very bright in the morning.(only a problem if you are sensitive to it) We were charged extra 10 euro for living our luggage there for a few hours, that was the first time it have ever happend.
The location is very good, near the Duomo Cathedral. The room is very quiet (no noise from outside) and clean. The owner Ari is very friendly and helpful. Wifi with very good signal. Safe neighborhood. We recommend it !

When we arrived, we got a warm welcome from the owner of the hotel who was waiting for us at the hotel's window. He was helpful all the time which made our trip easy and pleasant. The location was also good because almost all the tourism places in Florence were within 20 minutes walk.
April 7, 2015
Superb position, close to the delights of the old town. It's run by a delightful, generous host, is spotlessly clean - and close to good restaurants where the locals eat. La Contessa delivers Florence to the traveller in a quiet, affordable and delightful way. Bravo.

The room was very small,there wasn't any facilities to prepare hot water and tea.the location was not very good.
Hotel was calm,clean,comfortable
April 5, 2015
Location is great, just a short walk from main attractions and on a quiet street with a good variety of restaurants and shops nearby. The owner is very pleasant and helpful, and he gave great recommendations for what to see/do and where/what to eat! The room was clean and spacious, and the WiFi worked very well. If I ever return to Florence I would definitely stay here again. Really good value for the money and a wonderful atmosphere.

GOOD LUCK !! for owner and potential guests..

The Le Contesse B&B is a nice little place in central Florence. Nice rooms and a warm welcome. Good value for money.
January 6, 2015
Minimal breakfast. Tiny shower with very low water pressure and nowhere to put the shampoo etc.
Friendly staff. Good location close to Santa Croce. Nice and clean room.
January 3, 2015
The only problem we had was we couldn't get a taxi on New Year's morning to take us to the airport, but this was NOT the B&B's fault. The taxi companies wouldn't answer the phone. So if you are in Florence on an important holiday like Christmas or New Year's Day, make sure you reserve your taxi ahead of time otherwise be prepared for a very stressful time locating taxi!
Location is good and staff is welcoming with warm smile, and helpful! Room is sufficiently big with extra blanket and a hair blower. Supermarket across the street. About 20-25 minutes walk from train station.

It's plenty of mosquitos. So much that i had to buy a insecticide after the first night
12 minutes walk to Duomo. Nice rooms and comfortable beds. Nice breakfast.
October 24, 2014
Great location, quiet at night, comfortable bed, good bathroom, very nice owners.
October 22, 2014
We liked this B&B, the room, the helpful, friendly service and that it was very quiet.
October 12, 2014
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)
Location, understanding and courteous owners.
October 8, 2014
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
September 23, 2014
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!
September 17, 2014
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.
