Area city center
Located in San Frediano, a suggestive area in the very heart of Florence, it is just 10 minutes’ walk from the greatest art galleries and museums. It can be reached either by car (it is just outside the ZTL area, “Limited Traffic Area”) or, if you prefer, by bus or taxi which are available and easy to get, particularly if you need to go to Piazzale Michelangelo and to visit the great exhibitions of the Fortezza.

Cars can be parked nearby and with a little extra charge (the central area is not reserved for parking, as it is allowed only to residents).

Its really strategical position, the quietness of a comfortable and refined lodging help to make the Bed & Breakfast 1900 Artevita a perfect starting point to get to know Florence.

My room, with the art on the walls, the table and chairs, and most of all, the balcony patio, were just what I'd always imagined a room in a city in Italy would be like. As a writer, it had the tables and chairs I needed, and the privacy, to be productive, without feeling blocked off from the world. Shaila was an amazing host, very kind and accommodating. She made me feel so welcome. The only thing about this accommodation I did not appreciate was that it's not actually a bed and breakfast, in my view of what that is. The breakfast was a coupon to a pasticerria down the road. It was very nearby, but included only sweets as the option. Since I saw photographs of breakfast on plates in the room, and it was called a bed and breakfast, I assumed that meant breakfast was on site. I would recommend not purchasing the breakfast because you can simply buy the items on your own there if you want, probably for less money, or go somewhere else, or store your own food in the fridges available. The only other note is that if you plan to spend time at the Duomo or other popular sights, you'll be doing a lot of walking (or get a taxi or bus). I enjoyed being away from the center, but I am exhausted!

More accurately, I'd like to rate this property 7.5. The main positive was the host was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Shaila was flexible with our dates, even with a last minute flight change, and very understanding. She was a huge positive for booking the room. The location was quiet and further out from the main sites which we enjoyed. It took us about 20-30 min to walk to most sites which seemed to bother my husband more than it bothered me. The room was similar to photos however there were some issues. I found it very dusty in the room & had issues with allergies. The bathroom definitely had a very musty smell throughout our stay. There was only a bathroom mirror which showed head up but no way to view your outfit. The curtains did not do an adequate job of blocking out light, even at night when it was "dark". The biggest issue was the room smelled like cigarettes despite booking a non-smoking room. I think these issues are not necessarily related to the cleanliness of the room, but more it being in an older building & not being updated however it did have a significant impact on how much we enjoyed the stay.

In der Beschreibung steht folgender Satz: "Freuen Sie sich auf einen Flachbild-TV und einen Tisch und Stühle, wo Sie Ihr kontinentales Frühstücksbuffet genießen können. " Also es gibt kein Frühstücksbuffet in der Unterkunft. Man bekommt Gutscheine für eine Pasticceria etwa 200 Meter von der Unterkunft entfernt. Man bekommt zwei Stück Gebäck (Croissant sind ein wahrer Traum) und einen Kaffee oder Tee. Es hätte mich abgeschreckt, dass es kein Frühstück in der Unterkunft gibt, aber so war man gezwungen, mal in eine echte Pasticceria zu gehen, und das Leben bzw. das Erwachen der Italiener live mitzuerleben. Da es Samstag bis Montag Früh war, konnte man auch gratis innerhalb der blauen Park-Streifen parken. Es war zum ersten Mal B&B überhaupt. Da ich Hotels gewohnt bin, bin ich sicherlich kein Maßstab aber für mich kommt in Zukunft wieder ein Hotel in Frage. Für einen kurzen Trip in Florenz und wer gerne etwas spaziert bis man ins Zentrum zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten kommt, ist die Lage vollkommen in Ordnung.

Esperienza positiva Camera pulita, buona colazione presso la pasticceria “Pegaso”, servizi apprezzati (frigo, cucina, angolo caffè/tisane). Dista circa 2km dal centro, non troppo, ma se ci si sposta a piedi bisogna camminare un po’. All’accoglienza, la signora Shaila è stata molto gentile. Consigliato.

Gestore molto gentile, premuroso e accogliente, ma molto discreto, non invadente. B&B comodo per raggiungere il centro storico, anche a piedi, attraversando San Frediano. Un'occasione per scoprire la Firenze meno turistica. Letto molto comodo, stanza semplice, curata e silenziosa, nonostante la zona di passaggio, bagno con tutto il necessario.

Posizione ottima, a distanza pedonale rispetto alla stazione ed al centro, la mia camera era silenziosa e spaziosa. Il prezzo è alto per essere un B&B ma in linea con i prezzi molto alti di Firenze. Attenzione perché non c'è ascensore, è un secondo piano, per me non è stato un grosso problema ma per qualcuno può essere disagevole. La colazione non viene preparata nella struttura ma si dispone di un buono per consumarla in una ottima pasticceria nelle vicinanze, questa è un po' una pecca rispetto al sovrapprezzo pagato in prenotazione che è analogo, se non superiore, a ciò che uno pagherebbe facendo colazione al bar in autonomia. La signora della reception è stata cordiale e molto disponibile.
