The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. It was the perfect hideaway that was close enough to everything but far enough to be in a "REAL" Florence neighborhood. The Ulivieri family were wonderful hosts and responsive to my requests. I enjoyed Carla's wonderfully prepared breakfasts. Simple yet very tasty. I would recommend this home highly.
Carla has obviously been an amazing hostess her whole life - she greeted us with a huge smile and welcomed us into the flat with cold water on a very hot day! Breakfast was wonderful (and we got to choose the time, which was great), the room was exactly as shown, and the bathroom sharing was no problem. Check out was easy as she allowed us to leave our backpacks at the apartment and pick them up before our train.
Just for your information: the walk from Santa Maria Novella train station took about 20 minutes with backpacks and the walk into Firenze city center is about 15 (and only about 5 minutes to the Accademia).
Carla was lovely and welcoming. Nice place only 15 minutes walk from the center of Florence. Breakfast was good. Would stay again.
Me and my husband stayed here for one night in June 14. The room is quite spacious and clean and quite near to the Florence center. Carla is a lovely host and gave us the precise directions from the railway station. The breakfast was awesome (boiled eggs, fruits, croissant etc.). Would love to stay again and definitely recommend.
Carla was very welcoming and friendly. The B&B was easy to find in a central location. Carla gave us directions that were easy to follow. All in all a very Italian experience.
We love Carla!! My friend and I stayed here for one night. About a 10 minute walk from the Accademia Gallery, Carla's B&B is homey, full of personality and quite clean. It's full of books and art, and when we came home very late at night, we chatted with Carla's son for a moment about his favorite Italian author. Breakfast in the morning was one of our favorite parts of the trip. We didn't want to leave!!
Directions to the B&B were easy to follow. She called us a taxi the next morning, and gave us helpful directions to wherever we needed to go. Just wonderful.
Stayed with Carla for 3 nights late June 2014. The 200+ positive reviews online are more than fair and very accurate. Great location for the cities major sites, but it's Carla's personal touch that makes her BNB stand out. Would stay again.
Carla and Alberto were amazing hosts, I cannot recommend them more. They are the sweetest people ever, and I had a fantastic AirBnB experience. First, Alberto handed me and my friend a map of Florence that we could use. And he answered all of our questions regarding where to go, how to get there, and etc. When I asked him for information on speciality/artisan shops, he let us know where to go and which websites to look at for the historic Florentine shops.
And Carla is such a sweet person! She cooked us breakfast in the morning, which was very delicious. I wish I could've stayed longer to chat with her, but we had to leave early for our schedule. She is so generous and kind. If/When I do come back to Florence, I will definitely try to come back to Carla's!
Carla was nothing short of welcoming. Her warm demeanor was just the thing we needed durin our stay. Niether of us had been to Italy before and she happily walked us through on the major locations. The b&b is only a 15 minute walk from the duomo and was easy to navigate to. Each morning she made us breakfast, which was heavenly. Fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee, pastries and fruits. If you want an amazing stay in Firenze.. The DiVinci B&B is it!
I reserved Carla's B&B for my son and his friend who are college students. Carla's place was their first B&B experience. Here's what my son and his friend's review: "Carla's place was very good and clean. Her family was really nice and helpful. They answered all our questions and even made calls to places for us. They were very knowledgeable about the town. The breakfast was delicious. We definitely recommend her place to others". I'd like to add that even before my son and his friend left for Italy, when Carla and his son, Alberto, got to know that my son and his friend are going to a castle which is pretty hard to get to. Carla and Alberto started making calls in helping them find a better transportation route to get to the castle and sure enough, my son and his friend followed their suggestions and got to the castle with no problem. Thank you so much, Carla and Alberto.
