We travel a lot, and have stayed with dozens of other hosts, and Federico was by far the friendliest, most gracious, and generous host we have ever stayed with. The Black Sheep B&B is in an amazing location in Florence, close to shops, restaurants, the train station, and other amenities. Make sure you stay here your next time in Florence!.

Things felt a little chaotic with the host living so far away in Empoli. The 8:30 AM breakfast didn't work out for us, a little too late. One time the host didn't come in for breakfast, and one time he was very late. Also, we were surprised that the host was not living on-site; perhaps that is normal in Italy. But it would not be a good situation for a female traveling by herself. \n\nOverall, the host was very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent.
stayed from 05/13/2023 to 05/18/2023
The answer from the host:
I apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay. I understand that the timing of breakfast was not satisfactory, and I regret any frustration it may have caused. Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused by my temporary living arrangements. I appreciate your understanding and feedback, and I will take it into account to improve the overall experience for future guests. Thank you for highlighting the friendliness and helpfulness of the host, as well as the excellent location. If there is anything else we can do to make it up to you or to address any concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know. We value your feedback and hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a better experience in the future. Federico The Black Sheep B&B

The Black Sheep B&B was perfect for our stay in Italy! The room was comfortable and well decorated - exactly the vibe we were hoping for in Florence! The breakfast was amazing! Frederico was very kind and helpful, recommended many great restaurants (many within walking distance) and was available to answer any questions we had. The b&b is very close to the train station. My sister and I enjoyed both walking all around Florence and taking day trips to other cities. I would recommend the black sheep to anyone and hope to come again one day!

The Black Sheep is a gem right in the heart of Florence. My friend and I were extremely lucky that we took a chance to stay at this place. The host made sure to provide the best experience & give fresh croissants in the morning. I believe of all the hotels and airbnbs, this by far has been THE BEST. I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat, especially outside travelers!

We chose 'The Black Sheep' mainly for its location in Florence and we are so glad we did. The host, Federico, is wonderful, the whole place was spotless, our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean as well. An added bonus was the coffee maker in the room! We would completely recommend it as a relaxing, comfortable place to stay in Florence.

Frederico was a fantastic host who went out of his way to make my wife and me feel comfortable. He took the train to come bring us fresh croissants every day for breakfast, was extremely generous with his recommendations and is overall an exceptionally charming individual. The room was beautiful, classy, and located a 5-minute walk from the train station, right in the heart of Florence. We will be staying here again if we visit in the future!

We didn’t actually stay here because of the stairs up to the room. When we told the host the stairs were a problem, he searched for a property in the same area, called and booked the room, negotiated the price down to what he was charging at his property, and carried most of our luggage as he led us a few blocks to the new property and verified a working elevator. It was friendly service above and beyond what we could ever have expected. Great Host!

The breakfast consisted of a croissant, quite tasty but unhealthy, I only remember the host being on time for breakfast the first morning, didn’t show up for breakfast the second day without even a phone call to me and it seemed typical of his poor time management to be late for check-out (as he had "kindly" offered to carry my large suitcase down the 4 flights of stairs to the street) he then helped me reach the tram for both of these acts I was very grateful, however his being late "again" caused me to miss my flight by minutes and therefore cost me the same as 3 nights of accommodation at his B&B as I had to pay fees and penalties to re-book a flight and also cost me a day out of my holiday as I couldn’t reach my destination until the following day.

One word to describe this place and the host - WOW! The location was fantastic, minutes from the train station. Excellent instructions on how to get there. We were met by Federico, who is very pleasant, charming, and accommodating. He is very organized, had maps with places to visit and must-sees, or places to eat, circled for us on the map. We had originally booked a room where we had to take stairs to go down to the bathroom, and when he saw how inconvenient it was for two "mature" ladies, he accommodated us in one of the rooms on the main floor that was vacant, with no extra charges to us. They had a menu of what we wanted to order for breakfast the next day and served us delicious pastries with tea/coffee, juice, yogurt. We asked if we could get milk and cereal, and the next day he had that for us on the table. He had a fruit basket with apples, bananas, and oranges that we were told to help ourselves to. There was a fridge in the room, and he provided water, juice, and boxes of snacks, all at no extra cost. Please note that there are three rooms being rented in this B&B, so you are sharing the common areas, living room, and kitchen with other guests. All guests have their own private bathroom. I would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Florence. Thank you, Federico. We will never forget your hospitality.

Wonderfully close to the train station, if you follow the host's directions and not Google maps. Up a few flights of stairs. Host was superb in outlining paths for the activities we'd planned, gave great advice. Room very comfortable. Breakfast rating on American scale - host provided excellent fresh pastries for breakfast, and fruit, but no complex carbs or high protein. I'd definitely stay there again.

Absolutely a great place to stay. Close to the train station which was important to us and not far to walk to everything else when we were not dragging our suitcases. Donatello is a craftsman and artist and has remodeled the rooms perfectly with everything that you need and not a bunch of clutter that you don't. Very comfortable beds & pillows and modern bathroom. He is also a great host that met us for breakfast at our preferred time. Made us fresh espresso and had wonderful assortments of pastries, fruit, and yogurts. He stayed and chatted with us about Florence and what activities we had planned, offered great suggestions about a city he knows very well. I would definately recommend and stay at the Black Sheep again, and again!

Perfect solution for a stay in Florence. Repay the flights of stairs when arriving at the third floor of this historic building. Already recommended to friends and family, because the environment is super cozy and the owners are equally welcoming. The atmosphere you breathe is really nice. Cross the street from the station and you're there. Via della Scala runs alongside Piazza S. Maria Novella, no need to walk through the chaos of the station. Walk along the street, with beautiful buildings and many little bars, and you'll find yourself in Piazza S. Maria Novella and from there to S. Maria in Fiore or Piazza Signoria or along the Arno River only takes a few minutes. Great location, and you'll feel really comfortable (even rest is assured). We stayed in the triple room at the end of May. Thank you Federico, Michele, and Sarah, bye!

B&B very close to Santa Maria Novella train station and a short walk from the city center. Federico was very welcoming even though we arrived outside the indicated check-in time and available to provide us with directions to places to dine and have lunch. His father and mother were very nice preparing breakfast with very fresh croissants and offering jam of their own production and fruit from their field. Room with air conditioning, clean and equipped with every comfort. Good value for money. If we were to return to Florence we would not hesitate to choose again the B&B The Black Sheep of Federico because it feels like being at home. Congratulations!

Reception by the manager characterized by exquisite courtesy and availability. Spacious accommodation equipped with comfort. Excellent location, 200 meters from the station and allowing to reach on foot in a few minutes every building of artistic-cultural interest center. Truly an ideal accommodation for those who want to fully enjoy the city of Florence.

My friend and I spent three splendid days in Florence, which wouldn't have been so beautiful without the presence of The Black Sheep and the manager. The B&B is located just a few steps from Santa Maria Novella station and the place for morning breakfast: we appreciated the advantageous location, connected to the most interesting cultural centers of the city. The services offered were really pleasant and all well taken care of. Federico was very kind and courteous from the beginning, and besides seeming very nice, he was attentive to providing for our needs, getting in touch with us to know how the stay was going and showing interest in possible requests aimed at improving it. The only criticism could be directed at the wi-fi connection, given the poor signal recorded in the room: but for those interested in spending most of the day around Florence or simply looking for the convenience of the B&B's opening room (where, among the various comforts, it seemed to us that the structure's connection worked better), it shouldn't be a drama. We will definitely come back.

Perhaps since we visit Florence, the bed and breakfast The Black Sheep seemed the best to us. In fact, we must compliment the manager, Mr. Federico, for his continuous and punctual assistance, albeit remotely, due to a small problem, for the cleanliness and for the breakfast vouchers that we could use at a cafe pastry shop near the b&b. In conclusion, thank you for everything. We will come back.

The rooms, besides being very cute, are particularly quiet, you sleep like "dormice". Highly recommended.

The property is easy to reach as it is just a few minutes' walk from the S. M. N. train station. The property is beautiful, as is the room: everything is tastefully furnished with a welcoming modern style that makes you feel comfortable. Clean spaces, quiet room, possibility to cook and even leave food in the fridge. The manager was welcoming, kind, and helpful. Upon our request, he provided specific breakfast products even though there was some initial confusion about the choice due to a lack of knowledge of the ingredients, but in the end, he was good at meeting our needs. We thank him very much for the demonstrated availability even in storing luggage at check-out. A truly beautiful stay: thank you!

We chose this property for the Firenze Rocks event and the manager seemed very friendly and accommodating right from the start. The B&B is in a strategic location, very convenient because it's a 5-minute walk from the train station and close to the city center; the rooms are very nice, beautifully furnished, with an external bathroom but still reserved for guests. However, right from the online booking, the way the situation was handled seemed a bit confusing to us: we booked a double room and then were moved to another one due to overbooking, the manager then apologized including the tourist tax and breakfast in the new booking. Despite having notified our arrival and departure times well in advance, a week before the booking date we were asked again because it was uncertain who would welcome us. On the same day, we were welcomed by another person than agreed, we weren't even given an invoice or receipt for payment, which we had to leave in the room haphazardly, as we never had the opportunity to meet the manager. Last but not least: no breakfast, contrary to what was stated. We remain somewhat perplexed and hope it was just a momentary lapse.

Trovato su internet, si è mostrato subito un B&B giovane. Conferma avuta non appena visto di presenza. Vicinissimo alla stazione di Firenze Santa Maria Novella e a due passi dal centro storico. La struttura si trova al terzo piano senza ascensore ma non è un problema per la valige perché il gestore verrà fin giù a prenderle. Stanze pulitissime così come il bagno. Noi abbiamo soggiornato nella camera con bagno esterno ma non è stato un problema perché l'ambiente è così familiare da non creare disagi. In camera troverete un frigo con acqua e bevande, inoltre sono presenti bollitore per il tè e caffè americano. Colazione fantastica! Donatello preparerà un buon caffè con la caffettiera oltre che cornetti, latte, yogurt, marmellata, miele, formaggio spalmabile. Bello anche poter fare quattro chiacchiere con il gestore. Letto comodissimo con doppi cuscini, la stanza era calda ma è presente il climatizzatore. Disponibile per gli ospiti anche un computer e connessione WiFi gratuita.

The Black Sheep è un ottimo bed & breakfast. Ci siamo trovati veramente bene per quanto riguarda il gestore che è stato molto cordiale e disponibile nel consigliarci le cose da fare con relativi posti dove pranzare e/o cenare, poi per la posizione a un centinaio di metri dalla stazione Santa Maria Novella (personalmente fondamentale) e per la struttura dove ci siamo trovati quasi come a casa a livello di confort. Dista circa 10 minuti a piedi dal duomo di Firenze o da altre attrazioni sempre nelle vicinanze. Colazione quasi meglio di un albergo in quanto il gestore ogni mattina ti fa trovare cornetti freschi di pasticceria con altre cose quali frutta fresca, yogurt, latte, succo d'arancia, pane tostato, qualche formaggio e altro ancora. La colazione è veramente abbondante e non c'è assolutamente niente da dire. Consiglio personalmente questo B&B lontano dal baccano ma allo stesso tempo vicino a ciò che interessa sul serio e comodo per poi tornare nella propria città.

Ho soggiornato al Black Sheep dal 10 all'11 maggio. Il proprietario è stato molto gentile e disponibile, la stanza era ampia ed accogliente, forse un po buia: anche di giorno erano necessaria la luce artificiale. Un altro aspetto era l'assenza dell'armadio, sostituito da un appendiabiti al muro e senza cassetti. Sconsiglio questo B&B a chi ha motilità ridotta perché si trova al terzo piano senza ascensore e le scale sono parecchio ripide. Il rapporto qualità-prezzo è davvero eccellente! In ogni caso mi sento di consigliare caldamente di soggiornare qui, se dovessi ricapitare a Firenze ci tornerei senza alcun dubbio.
