I booked the single room for my mom through AirBNB (I was studying in Florence at the time but she couldn't stay with me). She really enjoyed her stay there. Although the streets outside were noisy, that can be expected anywhere in a city like Florence. She said the WiFi worked great and her room was very clean. The host's...

NOT a B&B. While the location is convenient to the train station and attractions, it is on a street where an open-air leather market is in operation from 7 in the morning till 9 at night. The rooms facing the street get the sounds of setting up stalls (starting around 6:30 a.m.) to dismantling stalls and street cleaning (ending around...

Hi Shellem, Thanks a lot for your review, I think before you book the room considering the location and that our property is located in the street of the typical San Lorenzo market, and definitely not a quiet street. But in the historical center of Florence many streets are noisy, or because there are markets, and there are bars and...

We were lucky enough to find this gem in the heart of Florence. It is walking distance from the train station and also from all the major tourist locations in the city. It is right in the leather market and a minute walk from the Central Market building which is an amazing place for food. The room we stayed in...

I was in communication with the host both via e-mail and on the phone, but they were not able to be there when I checked in. Also, I only stayed one night so I was never able to meet them. The location is phenomenal! Major issue is parking. You are not told that the street vendors take up every surrounding...

The place is spotlessly clean and in an excellent location. Near everything and an easy walk to both the train station and the bus station. Veronica is very helpful. However, it should not advertise as a B and B as there is no breakfast! Also, my bed as so hard it was like sleeping on a table! After a few...

This was a nice place, we had our own bathroom, bed room and bathroom was very clean, bed was nice and comfy. Great location to all attractions and restaurants. The only thing was that it was alittle noisy in the mornings as it's right outside the markets. The host was very friendly and helpful.

I chose Residence Martin based on its central location and positive reviews and I was not disappointed. I knew that it is located right on the souvenirs and leather market and very close to the General Market are and thus it is not the quietest location in Florence, but I brought earplugs along (they are also provided from the structure)...

Residence Martin is just minutes away from Santa Maria Novella Train Station in the characteristic area of the San Lorenzo Market where you find the most delightful food and street atmosphere. The Bnb is on the 1st floor and easy to walk up to. A pleasant terrace to have breakfast and night cap drink. The rooms are great or quality...

Expecting a room large enough for 4 adults with a private bathroom, we were disappointed when we arrived and received a room for 2 with an ante-room with a double bed crammed into it - no place for suitcases, no shelves, no hooks and to add to the misery - a shared bathroom on the other end of the apartment....

Dear Samantha, I thank you for your comment but I am very surprised to read what you wrote because the quadruple room booked is a room consisting of 2 interconnecting rooms: 1 room is very large with 1 wardrobe, a large table with 4 chairs, supports for suitcases and another smaller room with double bed. This room is 27 mq.,...
