We felt like home in this very cosy and personalised hotel. The staff was really kind and above all the receptionist who was helpful and very pleasant. They even offered me a bottle of wine for my birthday.
On the first night, we had to go to another hotel since they had a pipe problem in our hotel room. The other hotel was very basic compared to B&B Marzocco.
The rooms were beautiful, large, clean bathroom. Also had a fridge and satellite TV with some English news channels. The staff were all very friendly and gave us a good introduction to what we should see and some restaurant recommendations
One very very minor things - the toilet door didn't shut fully but was not a problem.
The staff is really warm and available, the girl at the desk almost "obliged" us to follow her for 10 minutes in a synthetic/eclectic/really-useful description of main spots on the map of the town, from sightseeing to restaurants, shops and other good info. The atmosphere is warm and artistic, the room, even small, was perfect and not far from a "luxury"-like accomodation. The bathroom was almost as large as the room itself.
The only weak point, I suppose, is the location. But it is not completely weak: it is 5 minutes walking from the main railway station, this is very useful. And the city center (duomo etc.) is 5 minutes walking from the same station: the weak point is that the hotel and city center are in opposite directions with respect to the station, and this total 10-minutes walking may become quite boring. Anyway this is well compensated by the low prices.
It may have been a small room, but there was so much thought put to it that it looked so comfortable. The toilet was so clean and my partner, with him being really particular about cleanliness, did not complain a bit about the room. Ms Diana, one of the hotel staff, made our stay much enjoyable and breakfast was just superb.
If there was anything I didn't like about the stay, it could only have been not being able to stay more than a night there.
Helpful staff, great breakfast and coffee, less than 10 minute walk from train station, assistance with booking museums in advance. Room was clean and comfortable, decor a little offbeat.
Excellent service by the owner Marco. Really recommendable, and it´s difficult to find a cheaper place to stay in Florence.
We have rented a car, and it was very expensive to park it outside the hotel. Anyway, this is nothing the hotel can do anything about.
It is the perfect place for people visiting various fairs in Florence and also for the ones who want to enjoy the city as tourists
I will recommend this B&B with no doubts. It is value for money.The service was excellent and Marco -the owner- always trying to help you with doubt or problem you would have. The room perfect: good bed, no noises, good air conditioning, superb decoration and toilette. The situation very good as it is very near from central train station and the buses station. "El servicio fantastico, y la habitacion y cuarto de baño perfectos-se trata de un piso antiguo muy bien restaurado y reformado y con todas las comodidades modernas pero sin los ruidos de los nuevos hoteles-
That the owner Marco did everything to make our stay a very pleasent and nice, which we are very greatfull for. We will recommend him and his hotel to all of our friends and family. And of course others to.
No not at all.
Everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The location was great. It was a short walk to the train station. The owner was wonderful and made all our reservations and told us how to get to places we wanted to see. He provided a wonderful breakfast with fresh baked rolls that were delicious; best I have had. There are only 7 rooms and they are all beautifully decorated. He restored this bed and breakfast. I didn't know it was a bed and breakfast because I looked under hotels on your website. The owner spoke perfect English and couldn't have been more accommodating. He even gave us a bottle of wine!!!!!!!!!! The price for a room in Florence was unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I stayed at the Goldoni Hotel on another visit and that was nice but nothing like this! This was a delightful experience to say the least.
The owner said he could not put a big sign out in front because of regulations against that for any new construction and we had a hard time finding it. There is an address and name on a plaque out in beside the door, but we didn't see that. I thing the light may have been burned out. When you enter the building, the hotel is on the second floor. We rang the bell and the owner was waiting for us.
