Stayed in Casa Rovai for 4 days. It's good, organized, clean, well located, but it doesn't have breakfast. They suggest you to have breakfast in a restaurant near the guest house. It's 4 euros per person, which is ok, but if you like to have a rich breakfast, don't go there, as you have other options nearby. The guest house...

Dear guest, thank you very much for your comment. Just a couple of clarification to help others visitor who mat read it. We give our customers the possibility of choosing between having breakfast with us, having breakfast in a caffetteria nearby, or of course by themselves. When they decide to go to the caffetteria they still have a choice between...

But not easy to find as the B&B is behind an entrance door and at the 2nd level of the building. No breakfast in the B&B but in an outdoor coffee shop. Nice welcome and helpful advises. Powder milk would be appreciated with the coffee.

Highly recommended by family members who had stayed there before. These same family members met us there 2 days after we arrived and were surprised and disappointed to find they no longer serve breakfast in house. They give you a "voucher" to take to a small cafe a block or so away from their location to get a small coffee...

Located in the center of Firenze 5 min far from Duomo and Santa Croce but very quite and isolated. The rooms are very pretty with frescos everywhere! And the 2nd floor was also nice and with a modern style. Excellent experience with the friendly and helpful staff. Hope to come back!

If you don´t mind the gloomy entrence in a little backstreet the hotel is OK. Room was big and clean, . . very poor lighting, . . could not even read a map! We were told that breakfast should be very good, but this was not the case. The breakfast room is in urgent need of some shining up, just...

Staying at Casa Rovai was a charming and unique experience. The location of the B and B was ideal.The only taxis I took were to and from the train station, but if you are travelling light its about a 20 minute walk.The famous Duomo is only about 5 minutes walk away and you are close to many stores and restaurants...

For the price, this was a great deal in Florence. I looked around and it was very difficult to find a reasonably priced quality property in Florence. We only stayed one night, however, and it was quite a ways from the tourist area and I wish that we would have been closer. Bus does come close to property, however, but...

Dear guest, thank you for your comment: it is very important for us to read them and to improve our services.

Accommodations were perfect. The service was top notch. When we come back to Italy, we will be sure to pay a visit to Casa Rovai. Stefania was incredibly helpful. Our stay was made better because of her in-depth knowledge of the area. Thank you so much.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
