What could be improved is: Lack of bidet. The shower is small and lacks a glass door, which caused water to leak into the bathroom. The room is not very clean, especially the floor. What I appreciated is the location.

Good value for money and convenient because close to the metro stop, practically like staying in the station area so just a stone's throw from the center. The only downside is some mosquitoes in the room despite the anti-mosquito device, everything else is ok. It is worth noting the bathroom provided with courtesy service and hairdryer and above all clean.

Although the initial phone contacts were pleasant at the time of arrival, despite having called to inform, we found no one. After another call, they sent the codes via WhatsApp to enter and unload the luggage and to find out how to manage for parking they had assured us that someone would arrive shortly but after a not short wait no one arrived. We have never had face-to-face contact with the owners but only contact via phone and messages both for any further information, and for the same payment that was made online without the tourist tax, which after further request we were told to leave in the room. The snack bar was without milk and drinks and the coffee pod was paid, the room refrigerator was empty and after reading that their policy is plastic free (but the courtesy set in the room was all in plastic) we understood, the lack but glass bottles can excellently replace plastic bottles. Of the 2 rooms booked, the first one is very large (definitely used for 4 people) and comfortable even if the French window did not have a tight closure, the second one instead small and with a bed placed in a strange position and also noisy (an external heat pump that activated every 15/20 minutes and at night it is certainly not pleasant). Recommendations: it would be better to position the bed in the opposite position of the current one (in the niche) and a refresh to the walls and doors would not be bad as well as a mirror in the bathroom in a more comfortable position (we are not all one meter and seventy tall) and some towel hangers would also be useful. It would also be useful to have a luggage rack since the one in the wardrobe is unusable because there are double pillows.

The location of the property is excellent because, although not in the center, it is in front of a tram stop that allows you to reach the station and, at the next stop, Santa Maria Novella. The owners are punctual and very helpful in meeting schedules and needs. The room is comfortable and spacious. The bathroom is a bit small but it is private so it's okay like that. Areas for improvement: the walls are a bit stained and in general the common area could use a little more care. Breakfast is essential. Room soundproofing not optimal.

Let's start with the fact that I asked for a double room but they gave me a double room. The room does not have air conditioning. The very old mattress was dirty and very worn out. There are no accessible electrical outlets near the bedside tables, so it is difficult to easily recharge cell phones. It is impossible to watch TV because the volume button is stuck, so it is impossible to lower the volume. We were massacred by thousands of mosquitoes because there is no mosquito net on the only window. The room is very narrow. The bathroom has no window, bidet, curtain or shower box, the only dispenser of liquid soap is near the sink, so even if it were functioning it would be unusable for the shower because it is too far away. The bathroom door is impossible to close completely and the spaces are really narrow. The price is exaggerated in relation to the poor quality. I apologize if I forgot something. Good luck.

The bed and breakfast is nice, clean, and located in a great position, just a few minutes from Santa Maria Novella station and not far from the center of Florence. Right in front of the bed and breakfast, there is also a convenient tram stop (line T2). The hosts are very nice and gave us the opportunity to leave our luggage at the entrance on the day of departure, also providing information on the main places of interest and places to eat. It is also very convenient to access the bed and breakfast by entering the codes at the intercom and the door. We had a great time and we recommend it!

This Bed and Breakfast is located on the second floor of a residential building with an elevator. The tram stop is very close, just cross the street, and offers excellent connections to both the historic center and the S. M. Novella station. I stayed in a very comfortable double room, the bed is very comfortable and the bathroom, although small, lacks nothing; the courtesy set with shower gel, soap, and body lotion was much appreciated. Really excellent cleanliness. Breakfast is not provided, but each room has a kettle for tea and at the entrance, there is a coffee machine and baskets with croissants, toast, and packaged snacks. The lady who welcomed me was very friendly and kind, super helpful for any need. I recommend it and would gladly return.

We stayed one night. The room, although small in size, was well-kept in detail. Only downside: the small bathroom was missing a bidet. It is an excellent solution for those who want to stay in Florence without spending a fortune. The city center is not very far on foot, about 20 minutes. Near the structure, there are several parking spaces with blue lines where you can park, they are free from 8 pm to 8 am, the remaining 2 euros per hour.

We spent one night at the property, located about 1 kilometer from Soggiorno La Coccinella. From here, it is possible to visit Florence on foot, in about 10-15 minutes you reach the historic center. The value for money is excellent. Mrs. Chiara welcomed us with great warmth and willingness to provide all the information for our stay in Florence. The room was clean and everything in order. Breakfast is not included but there is a coffee machine and various snacks available! I recommend it and greet Chiara and her husband! Antonella.

Overall it was a positive experience, especially for the convenience of the location, but also for the availability and kindness of the owners. Certainly, with some small adjustments, it could have been even better. For example, the breakfast; booked, but once there we were told not available. Considering that there were various food items available and that it was possible to make coffee and there was a kettle in the room, there were two issues, there was not enough space in the room to have a proper breakfast for two seated. And even though the B&B's location is optimal for its proximity to the train station and the historic center, there are no bars/pastry shops in the immediate vicinity for breakfast. The room could also use some minor improvements, such as the main light switch, which is missing, next to the bed. That being said, for the time spent in the room (practically only for sleeping), the B&B is fine for a short visit to the city, the value for money (for Florence) is excellent and therefore recommended.

The property is 750m away from the Santa Maria Novella Station and you can easily go by foot there or just take the tram which is exactly opposite the building. Everything else is close to the station. Breakfast has some nice basic things even though they are not included in the price. Everything went very well.

The answer from the host:
Dear Logan Fields, thank you for your review, we kindly underline there is no breakfast with us. The snacks you'll find are all complimentary. All of our rooms are provided with complimentary coffee and tea, what you find is the possibility to have an italian espresso at 50 cents with real Lavazza blend. We are at 350 meters from the train station and also from Santa Maria Novella Church. at 500 meters from the Cathedral(Duomo). Probably you wrong the road using gps, as you mentionned during your check in. We offer you a map of Florence, but you denied. Sorry you do not appreciate your stay with us, You do not mentionned the first quality linen so soft, the air conditioning service also outside summertime. Everything for a very competitive rate.
