At your check in welcome for you with fresh fruit and water.

I remind you that you are going to stay in the heart of the town, and perhaps the nigth there could be any noise, especially if you will sleep with the windows open, so I suggest - if you're used to sleep in silence - to get ear plugs at the pharmacy.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • "In the heart of ancient Florence", Really means in the heart. Minutes to all the sights and restaurants. The house is great and very comfortable. Highly Recommend!

  • My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Maria and Roberto's place. It's very central in Florence and particularly perfect if you are only staying a few nights as you are so close to all the sights! It would also be very good for a longer stay as well. The house itself is very homely and clean. The bedroom is very spacious and the separate bathroom is really nice. Our hosts made us feel welcome and it was great having the cats and dog around too. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Florence.

  • I want to thank you very much Cris for everything. She has been a wonderful host! The room was as in the pictures, with everything clean and tidy. Next to the room was a small ally with a private nice and very clean bathroom and there is also a small coffee room with a little balcony to enjoy the different roofs of Florence. Cris is so kind and helpfully and she will recommend the best places to eat in Florence (such as All'Antico Vinaio!) Grazie mille Cris!

  • This room was perfect for my stay in Florence. It is in a central location right around the corner from the Uffizi and Piazza della Signoria. I was out exploring more than I was in the room, but it was also a great place to relax and recharge as needed. Criss was a wonderful host (provided helpful information, called for reservations, information regarding train schedules, etc). Thank you, Criss!

  • Maria's guest house is the greatest. Easy walking distance to everything you would want to see in Florence. An easy walk from the train station. As a host Maria is top shelf!!! Her place is very clean and has many many personal touches and lots of little extras that you really appreciate as a traveler...Thank you Maria for everything.

    April 2014
  • I was very fortunate to find a stay at Maria's place. The room is just as pictured and quite cute. You cannot beat the central location and we were glad to return to such a comfortable room after long days of sightseeing. I'd recommend it to all!

  • ottimo

  • Soggiornare alla Guesthouse di Maria Cristina è stato suggestivo e piacevolissimo. Neanche un minuto a piedi e ci si ritrova "nel cuore di Firenze", tra Palazzo Vecchio, la Loggia dei Lanzi e gli Uffizi. La camera è accogliente, pulitissima e curata nei minimi dettagli, tanto nell'arredamento quanto nelle dotazioni per gli ospiti e Maria Cristina è una host simpaticissima, super gentile e disponibile.

Ciao Mondo, il mio nome è Maria Cristina, sono di Firenze, sono una persona solare. Mi piace ascoltare buona musica. Amo i gatti e i cani, ma nell'appartamento troverete solo gatti :-) Adoro viaggiare, la buona cucina e il buon vino, la lettura e il cinema.
