The Fanti family were very welcoming. I wish I had learnt more Italian to respect their culture. The BnB was very clean and well maintained. It was a very quiet area although it was also their summer holidays during my stay. It was a nice walk to the main tourist attractions, especially along the river as they suggested.

Actually this is my first experience on airbnb and I have to say I'm not impressed. My train was delayed and we were late. I apologized to them and she told me that we have to wait till 22:00 to check in. Then another message said 23:00. We waited at the wrong house but didn't get any reply until 23:15. I can tell she was mad at us. But we're neither happy. This ruined our firs impression on Florence and airbnb. I'm sorry we're late but we paid for that. It's not fair to keep us waiting that late and being unfriendly. Also, we didn't get a bottle of wine for guests staying for 3 nights as said. Then her father doesn't speak English. We could barely communicate during breakfast. And I was not allowed to take seat by the window. There were 2 kinds of food I don't know what they are called but he said I can only choose one of them and just cut a tiny piece for me. All these made me really uncomfortable. And notice the noise of truk in early morning. Room is nice as pictured but we were not in mood to enjoy it. Anyway I don't recommend.

A truly wonderful time. Ricardo was welcoming and assisted us in every respect. He is a proud Florantine! Well located in the city, quite quiet. The rooms are bright and charming. A hearty breakfast is included. A 5 star stay. Would recommend to anyone, and if we return we would stay again. Caio

Siamo una famiglia Fiorentina da generazioni che produciamo ospitalità tenendo ad ogni tipo di sconosciuto che diventerà il nostro cliente e quindi il nostro amico. Crediamo fermamente nell'ospitalità come un appartenenza alla nostra città e amiamo il nostro lavoro così tanto che di conseguenza facciamo sentire anche i nostri clienti appartenenti alla città in cui viviamo. Tutti i nostri clienti potranno e hanno potuto sperimentare la città attraverso noi, attraverso la nostra ospitalità con un B&b nel cuore di Firenze aperto nell'Ottobre del 2013. Cerchiamo di dare il massimo per far sentire i nostri ospiti a casa; raccontando aneddoti su Firenze che solo noi conosciamo, portandoli a volte a cena fuori nei migliori locali della città. Facciamo il nostro lavoro con passione, generosità e tanta voglia di conoscere nuove persone che potranno diventare sicuramente nostri amici. Serena, la figlia, giovane imprenditrice, che parla Inglese, Spagnolo, Francese, si occupa della Reception e della gestione con i clienti, Riccardo invece ama far le colazioni e intrattenere i clienti, Paola ogni tanto viene a salutare gli ospiti e la famiglia imparando l'Inglese.
We are a Florentine family ; we are original, sincere and helpful: Serena, speaks 3 languages and take care of the check in and guests, she has a 10 years experience with hospitality working in the world of the Hotels when she decided to quit her job in a Hotel just because with a Air B&b she could produce hospitality and caring more for strangers , Riccardo, her father, a almost retired worker, take care of the Breakfast each morning while he tells histories about his city and Paola, her mother, and the chef, shows up some time to learn some new language and meet some new friend. Our motto is : guests can stay in our B&b so they really can live like locals . Do you know why? Because we make all our guests feel like they belong to our city , they can experience the city through us and we can give them culture not only by telling them history about Florence but from us who we live in Florence and ther is no better way to experience that. Our guest will become our friend & we will bring our friend out for dinner , we can tell them where to go to see the best places of the city; we will become a family. Our goal is taking care of our new friend.
