A real pleasure to stay at Locanda Orchidea! It has been recently renovated and is beautiful and comfortable while still retaining the charm of an old palazzo - large rooms, high ceilings, classic style furniture. The breakfast buffet was perfect, offering a range of fresh, delicious choices. The location is outstanding and the host, Luciano, is extremely thoughtful and nice. There is nothing to fault. We look forward to returning.

Non saprei cos'altro aggiungere alle numerose recensioni positive già pubblicate da precedenti utenti. Se avessi potuto dare anche la lode ai voti che ho espresso (tutti 10), lo avrei sicuramente fatto. Aggiungo solamente un mio parere personale: di strutture ubicate in modo favorevole alla visita di Firenze ce ne sono parecchie, ed allora la differenza la fa la professionalità, la competenza, la cortesia e la gentilezza del Signor Luciano che credo si riscontri molto raramente in altri casi. Grazie ancora per tutto e spero un arrivederci a presto.

Questa struttura si merita il massimo dei voti in tutto. A partire dalla disponibilità e gentilezza del Sig. Luciano, la colazione ottima e più che abbondante con molta possibilità di scelta. Camera pulita e profumatissima. Posizione più che centrale e con una vasta gamma di ristoranti/trattorie tutte nelle vicinanze. Sarà il mio punto di riferimento ogni volta che passerò da Firenze.

Un B&B che sorge nel palazzo della famiglia Donati, atmosfera tradizionale, signorile ma davvero accogliente. Tanto quanto l'oste che ci ha accolti con tutta la disponibilità del mondo fornendoci sin dalla prenotazione utilissime informazioni per visitare al meglio la città e dandoci ulteriori dritte al nostro arrivo. La struttura, disposta su più piani, risulta pulita, comoda e in una posizione stupenda per visitare il centro storico, essendo a soli 5 minuti (massimi) a piedi dal Duomo. Dotata di numerosi servizi (wifi, bollitore in camera, macchinetta del caffè e acqua nelle aree comuni, riscaldamento/condizionamento, ascensore...), quando dovrò tornare a Firenze non avrò alcun motivo per cercare un altro luogo in cui pernottare.

La struttura è centralissima. Il quid in più è dovuto alla tecnologia per entrare nella struttura e la simpatia del gestore. Persona presente, ma discreta e con una cultura della vita fiorentina che permette di allietare gli ospiti con aneddoti. L'ambiente è molto pulito e con i comfort necessari.

La struttura è molto accogliente, la colazione abbondante servita in una sala dedicata. La camera era molto spaziosa, cosi come il bagno. Ritorneremo volentieri in questa splendida città.

La struttura si trova in una zona strategica, in pieno centro città e a pochi minuti dalla stazione di SMN. La camera nella quale abbiamo dormito era molto spaziosa, così come il bagno. La colazione molto ricca era servita in una sala dedicata dove il gestore si prendeva cura di noi con estrema gentilezza. Ritorneremo senz'altro perché siamo tornati a casa con un bellissimo ricordo. Grazie.

Posizione ottima in un bellissimo palazzo d'epoca. La camera matrimoniale era molto spaziosa, pulita e confortevole; inoltre le finestre affacciavano sul cortile interno, quindi non abbiamo avuto problemi di rumori durante la notte. Bagno privato in camera, pulito e funzionale. Il Sig. Luciano, il proprietario, è stato molto gentile e disponibile. Rapporto qualità/prezzo pienamente positivo, considerato soprattutto il periodo e la zona della città. L'unico appunto che potrei fare riguarda la colazione, un po' limitata per chi come me soffre di celiachia. Potrebbe essere un valore aggiunto dotarsi all'occorrenza di prodotti senza glutine (anche industriali) per i clienti celiaci. Nel complesso il soggiorno è stato molto piacevole. Struttura decisamente consigliata.
