My boyfriend and I stayed at Ridolfi Guest House for two nights in July, and have nothing but praise. The location is excellent, within walking distance to the station and central Florence. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious and had good air conditioning. Despite the fact the bathroom was external, it was our own private bathroom and was incredibly...

We had an amazing experience at the Ridolfi Guest House. It was a fast walk from the train station, which we found to be very important for travel days. The owner was so amazingly helpful and friendly. He gave us great advice on restaurants and places not to miss. We had mentioned that we would arrive a little before check-in,...

We enjoyed our stay in this B&B. Our room was big and quite. The place has a kitchen. The room was also very clean and the place has a character. The owner was friendly and responsive. The only thing that we had to pay extra for checking after 5pm since there is no 24 hours on-site person.

This B&B is located near Santa Maria Novella train station. It is hard to tell there is a B&B unless you know the house number and how to arrive there, but the rooms are really top notch, very clean, the bed was comfortable and the owner was very friendly giving us very good recommendations of places to go and where...

We stayed four nights, in two different rooms. The new owners, Fabio and Giuliana, were sweet, delightful youngsters (to us in our sixties), anxious to be accommodating and helpful. They met us with two glasses of the (apparently regular Italian flavor) sweet, red orange juice upon arrival. Ten minute walk from the train station, twenty minutes to all the sights,...

The location is quite close to the main attractions (about 10 min walk),the room is comfortable and big, the owner is very kind and the envionment very warm. Very nice the breakfast served in the room, made us feel at home. The price was a little bit high for a B&B but not bad for easter period.

We booked into the Ridolfi Guest House after reading rave reviews on TripAdvisor, but it wasn't quite what we expected. Emilio was very congenial, and he met us at the door on our arrival. He gave us a map and pointed out points of interests and good restaurants. We were a bit surprised to learn that our "private" bathroom was...

Grazzie Barbara for your super friendly welcome :) We had a very cute room, with a high ceiling "a l'italienne" and very quiet. Great location, 10-15 mn walk to il duomo and 10 mn from train station. We'll definitely go back.

Ridolfi Guest House provided an excellent option within easy walking distance to both the centre-storico (historical centre) and the Stazione Santa Maria Novella (central train station). Useful as we had to catch a train to/from Rome. For only 43 euros we had a comfortable room with breakfast and wifi included. Our host was extremely accommodating - making us some delicious...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A welcome from who has transformed this roomy and comfortable apartment into a bed & breakfast. I have been a traveller for many years and, although everyone of us is different, some fundamental aspects are universal: the price/quality relation, the availability and the discretion of the management and staff, the attention to cleanliness. Moreover the location of the structure in respect of the historical centre, the most important trade fairs (fashion - the Fortezza da Basso for example) and of the main railway station S. M. Novella is guaranteed. We can offer you all of this in truly spacious and comfortable rooms situated in an unusually silent street; every day, we work with the aim of improving the quality and the comfort for you, our future visitors. Upon your arrival, for those interested, we are happy to offer you a coffee or a welcoming aperitif ... more   less
