I would give this place a 5-star rating but I think due to its location it may not be suitable for everyone. To begin, we arrived in Florence and rented a car and drove up to the Casa di Mina. It's not that easy to find as there isn't a big sign for it anywhere and it's along a busy... More

We stayed here 2 days and really enjoyed the stay. The service and the staff are very helpful and kind. Good rates and clean rooms, nice decorated. Ask to the staff restaurants where to eat. We'll be back. Higly recommended.

Located just on the outskirts of the city of Florence (a 10 minute walk down to Porta Romana), the recently renovate house offers 4 large rooms in B&B. Plus, you get access to the lounge that is also used as a breakfast room, where you can enjoy drinks and... More

We loved our time at Casa Di Mina. Francesco was at home when we arrived and he gave us a rundown of Casa Di Mina, restaurants and Florence generally. Lynda arrived home later. Both are wonderful hosts. Their B and B is named after their beautiful little daughter Mina. Casa di Mina is quite a grand place. It has four... More

We spent four days at Casa di Mina and found it outstanding. We sought it out because of its 'off the beaten path' location. Just convenient enough to Florence via short bus ride or scenic 20- minute walk, but far enough from the bustle of the city for the feel of a quiet retreat. Lynda and Francesco were superb hosts,...

We stayed six nights at Casa di Mina and had a great time there. Lynda, Francesco and Leslie have taken such good care of us and Mina was such a cute little girl.

We recently came back from a fabulous short break in Florence to attend a friend's wedding. Our hotel, Casa di Mina was set in the Oltrarno district of Florence on the far side of the river from the centre of Florence.
