This property was fantastic! Very charming and quaint and we especially loved having the table and couch in the room. It gave us some space to spread out! There is also access to a communal coffee/tea bar and microwave and refrigerator. These touches made such a difference. Shaila was a truly phenomenal host; she helped us get acquainted with the city, suggested things to do, explained how to use the buses, told us where to find things like the grocery stores, etc. She always responded very promptly. We had to leave around 4am for the airport and weren’t able to call a taxi due to some phone difficulties. Shaila called the taxi company for us and scheduled our ride, and then called us in the morning as we were leaving to ensure we got our taxi! We couldn’t have had a better stay. The property was a little far away from major attractions, but it is near public transportation so it was not a big deal at all.

My room, with the art on the walls, the table and chairs, and most of all, the balcony patio, were just what I'd always imagined a room in a city in Italy would be like. As a writer, it had the tables and chairs I needed, and the privacy, to be productive, without feeling blocked off from the world. Shaila was an amazing host, very kind and accommodating. She made me feel so welcome. The only thing about this accommodation I did not appreciate was that it's not actually a bed and breakfast, in my view of what that is. The breakfast was a coupon to a pasticerria down the road. It was very nearby, but included only sweets as the option. Since I saw photographs of breakfast on plates in the room, and it was called a bed and breakfast, I assumed that meant breakfast was on site. I would recommend not purchasing the breakfast because you can simply buy the items on your own there if you want, probably for less money, or go somewhere else, or store your own food in the fridges available. The only other note is that if you plan to spend time at the Duomo or other popular sights, you'll be doing a lot of walking (or get a taxi or bus). I enjoyed being away from the center, but I am exhausted!

More accurately, I'd like to rate this property 7.5. The main positive was that the host was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Shaila was flexible with our dates, even with a last minute flight change, and very understanding. She was a huge positive for booking the room. The location was quiet and further out from the main sites which we enjoyed. It took us about 20-30 minutes to walk to most sites which seemed to bother my husband more than it bothered me. The room was similar to photos, however, there were some issues. I found it very dusty in the room and had issues with allergies. The bathroom definitely had a very musty smell throughout our stay. There was only a bathroom mirror which showed head up but no way to view your outfit. The curtains did not do an adequate job of blocking out light, even at night when it was 'dark'. The biggest issue was the room smelled like cigarettes despite booking a non-smoking room. I think these issues are not necessarily related to the cleanliness of the room, but more to it being in an older building and not being updated; however, it did have a significant impact on how much we enjoyed the stay.

In the description, the following sentence can be found: "Enjoy a flat-screen TV and a table and chairs, where you can enjoy your continental breakfast buffet.". There is no breakfast buffet at the property. You receive vouchers for a pastry shop about 200 meters from the property. You receive two pieces of pastries (croissants are a true delight) and a coffee or tea. It might have put me off that there is no breakfast at the property, but this way you are forced to visit a real pastry shop and experience the life or awakening of the Italians live. Since it was from Saturday to Monday morning, you could also park for free within the blue parking spots. It was the first time ever in a B&B. Since I am used to hotels, I am certainly not a benchmark but in the future, a hotel will be an option for me again. For a short trip to Florence and for those who enjoy a stroll until reaching the center to visit the sights, the location is perfectly fine.

Very kind, caring, and welcoming host, yet very discreet, not intrusive. Comfortable B&B to reach the historic center, even on foot, crossing San Frediano. An opportunity to discover the less touristic Florence. Very comfortable bed, simple, well-kept and quiet room, despite the passage area, bathroom with all the necessary.

Great location, within walking distance to the train station and the city center, my room was quiet and spacious. The price is high for a Bed & Breakfast but in line with the very high prices in Florence. Please note that there is no elevator, it's on the second floor, it wasn't a big issue for me but it might be inconvenient for some. Breakfast is not prepared on-site but you receive a voucher to have it at a great pastry shop nearby, this is a bit of a downside compared to the extra cost paid in the booking which is similar, if not higher, than what you would pay for breakfast at a bar independently. The lady at the reception was friendly and very helpful.

The B&B 1900artevita is located in a semi-central area, poorly served by public transport and does not have private parking. Breakfast is served at a bar near the property, allowing guests to choose between 2 croissants or other options and a hot drink of their choice.

Pur non essendo in posizione centralissima è comodo ai mezzi e col bus arrivare in centro è semplicissimo. Un particolare ringraziamento a Stefano e alla sua disponibilità e professionalità!

Abbiamo apprezzato soprattutto la pulizia, la vicinanza al centro di Firenze (raggiungibile in un quarto d'ora a piedi) e a numerosi locali, bar ristoranti, servizi in genere. Ottima anche la vicinanza di un garage per sistemare l'auto.

Area Centro

Located in San Frediano, a suggestive area in the very heart of Florence, it is just 10 minutes’walk from the greatest art galleries and museums. It can be reached either by car (it is just outside the ZTL area, “Limited Traffic Area”) or, if you prefer, by bus or taxi which are available and easy to get, particularly if you need to go to Piazzale Michelangelo and to visit the great exhibitions of the Fortezza.

Cars can be parked nearby and with a little extra charge (the central area is not reserved for parking, as it is allowed only to residents).

Its really strategical position, the quietness of a comfortable and refined lodging help to make the Bed & Breakfast 1900 Artevita a perfect starting point to get to know Florence.
