I only rated the property lower than 10 because the area isn't the best. But that's Florence by the train station. I took a chance because it's a fairly short walk to the rental car location, and we only there 1 night. Our host, Silvia, was 1 of the most pleasant people I've ever met. The room was spotless and breakfast in the room was nice. There is laundry right next door. 5e to wash and 5e to dry. Bottom line, if we come back to Florence, we will stay here without hesitation. And hopefully Silvia will still be here.

Location is very close to train station and within walking distance to major tourist sights... Breakfasts very good- great delicious warm croissants, meats, cheeses, yogurts, fruits. Shower stall was small. Our host Silvia arranged for car to pick us up from airport and allowed us to leave luggage after checkout a few hours before we needed to catch train.

Abbiamo trascorso una bellissima vacanza. Consiglio vivamente LA LOCANDIERA per la disponibilità e la gentilezza di Silvia, la proprietaria, sempre pronta ad esaudire le richieste dei clienti, anche con intolleranze alimentari, e soprattutto per la posizione strategica a pochi passi dalla stazione centrale e dal centro. Ottima e salutare colazione in camera.

Mi sono sentita a casa. Silvia mi ha accolta con premura ed attenzione. La consiglio sia perche lei è di una disponibilità e gentilezza unica, sia per la posizione centralissima che occupa il suo beb; infatti ho potuto raggiungere facilmente ogni luogo a piedi senza difficoltà. Ci ritornerò di sicuro ❤️

Ho trascorso un fine settimana di lavoro e piacere con mia figlia, consiglio questo Bed-And-Breakfast per vari motivi: 1) la struttura si trova in una posizione strategica, vicinissima alla stazione, vicina alla Fortezza, vicina al centro. 2) struttura nuova con arredamento semplice e raffinato. 3) ottimo rapporto di qualità e prezzo. 4) gentilezza, simpatia e disponibilità di Silvia, la padrona di casa.. ah stavo per dimenticare pulito.

Tutto pulitissimo e profumato, la signora è gentilissima, le camere sono ariose con soffitti alti e ben strutturate. Colazione in camera con puntualità teutonica e con vasta scelta. Ci siamo trovati benissimo e lo consigliamo di certo.

Bed and Breakfast delizioso, situato a pochi metri dalla Stazione di Firenze e dal centro. La titolare vi farà sentire subito a vostro agio, è gentilissima e molto disponibile. La colazione è buona e abbondante, viene servita in camera all'orario da voi indicato nel menù (una comodità non da poco). Lo consiglio caldamente, in quanto se dovessi ritornare a Firenze sceglierei indubbiamente di alloggiare nuovamente in questa struttura!

Arrivare in stazione da sola e raggiungere in pochi minuti il bed & breakfast, trovare subito qualcuno che mi aspettava e che mi ha accolta mostrandomi la camera, fornita di tutti i comfort che mi erano stati descritti, è stato rassicurante. La camera con bagno, sky, wifi, bollitore era così confortevole che era un piacere rincasare la sera dopo una lunga giornata di cammino. Anche la colazione e l'orario che mi era data la possibilità di scegliere la sera precedente, mi veniva portata in camera molto gentilmente e sempre puntuale. La proprietaria era a disposizione per qualsiasi cosa, mi ha fornito una cartina indicandomi anche le strade da percorre per raggiungere le attrazioni turistiche; mi sono sempre spostata a piedi senza bisogno di utilizzare i mezzi perché il bed & breakfast si trova a pochi passi dalla chiesa "Santa Maria Novella".

The answer from the host:
Gentile Marie Elisa, è stato un vero piacere ospitarti e sono contenta che ti sia sentita a tuo agio e abbia passato un ottimo soggiorno nel mio piccolo bed and breakfast, ce la metto tutta per far sentire i miei ospiti un po' come a casa propria. Spero di ospitarti nuovamente se deciderai di tornare a Firenze! Ciao e a presto. Silvia.
