9.4.Exceptional.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The property is located on top of an apartment building in a residential area. There are several restaurants around that mostly cater to locals and are very good, but a ten minute streetcar ride takes you to the center of Florence. The stop is less than two blocks from the B&B. Lara is very nice and helpful.

    This was the best part of our trip. Lara was a wonderful host. We felt at home and enjoyed our stay. She came early to serve us breakfast as we had a early morning train to catch. I’d recommend her place anytime.

    Excellent B&B

    Excellent B&B, very welcoming, good facilities, very clean, beautiful views. The owners, Lara and Lorenzo, provide an excellent welcome, good breakfast and clean rooms. They also provide help and information on all aspects of Florence including, transport, places to visit, tickets with discounts and getting taxis. We would stay again and recommend them to everyone.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We had a lovely stay here. Sat on the balcony for breakfast each day. Lorenzo was very accommodating at all times. The place was right across from the bus stop, 10 minute walk to groceries (had a small bar fridge to share with others), laundry was right across the street. In a residential neighbourhood. Very clean. The bus took you straight to the train station (about 20 minutes), and also The Duomo area. Bus 55 takes you to the local pool. It was very hot while we were there. The breakfast had juice, coffee, express (etc) bread, cheese, cereal, milk, jams and Nutella, lunch meat, croissants, buiscuits, cake bread and fruit.

    Excellent customer service!

    The people running Il Grillo di Firenze are absolutely wonderful! When we had questions or needed anything, they were very helpful. The location was convenient, a bus ride away from all the sites. Our room and the communal areas were spotless. There was even a delightful communal balcony!
