What a fantastic family! The room was perfect-clean and roomy as well as very cute! You do have to share a bathroom, but the bathroom is large and clean as well. Each member of the family was incredibly accommodating and friendly and willing to do anything to make our stay more enjoyable. Delicious breakfast was served in the morning with more available than most B&B's I had stayed in previously. The location was about a 20 minute walk into the town center. This was perfect because we were able to have the windows open at night and not be disturbed by too much "city" noise! Wonderful place to stay!
The house is like the picture, which seems historic and good. But the bathroom need be shared with someone else and have steps in the same floor. Due to their breakfast begin from 8:30 AM, we have no enough time to have that make hoster not feel good and said " we should be ashamed". Actually, This is not fair for us. As a traveller, we have our flexible timetable and we can't know what's plan on the next day. As a hoster, you can't ask your guest to align with your timetable and should consider your guests from their aspect. Furthermore, we can't meet with you on the whole day. I totally understand your contribution, so I suggest you can have a breakfast note in your public room and collect them every night. Overall, the room is good except "breakfast issue".
we are astonished about your feedback but as a bed and breakfast with breakfast we prepare our homemade croissants and as you were the only guests we needed to know your apperance in the morning and you should let us know to for respect.
Usually when a guest book a bnb they do breakfast and 08.30 am it is not too late also because if you would advised us we would you prepare breakfast in the room but you never never meet us and you never never talked with us about informations and things to see.
Maybe next time you should book a flat instead of a room in a bnb.
Also in the room it is written that you should advise the owners about the breakfast maybe you didn't read it even if we showed it to you.
That's a miserable shame.
We had a lovely stay in Firenze at Fanti's house. They were extremely welcoming with us and took really good care of our well being.
The house is very clean, nicely decorated and very cosy. It is located around 10min by walk from Santa Croce and the city center. For those who are coming by car from Roma this is very convenient because you dont have to drive in the city center.
Breakfast is complete and good.
I highly recommand staying in this b&b to visit Firenze if you are in family but also à couple.
Baci de Marie!!
We had a lovely experience at the Fanti's B&B! The room was fantastic, and Serena and Ricardo were really great. The room and bathroom were perfect, and breakfast was lovely. Anyone would really enjoy their stay!
Nice and cosy home, lovely and friendly family, really like the breakfast in there. Wish I could stay in there few more days.
