This was one of the first B&B stays for us, so trying to be as objective as possible. I am rating on 5 parameters - Bedroom, Bathroom, Breakfast, Location and the Host - all with 2 points for a ten pointer rating. 0/1/2 ~ Oh no / OK / Awesome Composite Rating for our (myself with wife) stay here is an AVERAGE 5/10. 1. Bedroom - 1/2 - 2 single beds with soft mattress. Cozy, medium sized homely room. Not sure about AC, we did not use it. Well lit room. 2. Bathroom - 0/2 - Not attached to the bedroom. One has to cross the living room and and an alley to reach. There are two bathrooms, one of which has a shower. The one made available to us had no shower. We were to use the other bathroom (used by the hosts also) to bathe 3. Breakfast - 1/2 - Coffee, cake, omlette. Utility driven. Served in the living room. Earliest possible at 9 a.m. which we thought was a bit late. 4. Location - 1/2 - 10 minute walk from SMN Firenze. Florence can be easily travelled on foot, in fact highly recommended, my ideal choice would therefore be to stay as close to the station to save taxi fare or a walk with luggage. 5. Host - 2/2 - Elisa and her husband are friendly and helpful. She did suggest decent restaurants and choice of sights.

This place was ok, very centrally placed in the old city of Florence. However, it was very noisy during the night. We did not see very much to the hosts.

Eliza, was a great hostess. Our flight was so late getting in I think she thought that we were not coming. She explained fourth floor but as American's we are not thinking flights up so it was quite a shock when the door opened and we looked in shock. She did ask why we picked her place and I said it looked lovely and was closed to everything. Our group was three and on was 84 and they were really helpful getting our luggage up to there floor. So American's it is flights up and be in shape if you are going to stay with these lovely people.

My days at Elisa's apartment were great. She and Refugio were very kind and friendly with me. The room was really comfortable and the breakfast was awesome! The apartment was clean too so all this make me feel at home. The apartment is located near to all the touristic attractions of Firenze and if you want you can walk to the train station which is about 20 minutes walking. I did it many times without any problems. From the apartment you can go to eveywhere in forenze So, if I come to Firenze again I would definitly stay here again.
