Really loved staying in this hotel - fantastic location, friendly and welcoming staff - I had such a great time I intend to go back next year. The room was very comfortable and spotless. It was perfectly located in the centre of beautiful historic Florence. Thank you to Ines and Alora for their advice and friendly hospitality!

Young married couple recently married on traveling on honeymoon tour, we desired a place clean and central to the sites. This hostel was both. Well located to the attractions of the city and the room was neat and clean. Nothing fancy but a simple stay. Friendly and accommodating staff. It is difficult to find as very little signage.

This hotel is well located and close to most attractions. A bit tricky to find as there are no big signage on the outside of the building. The room and bathroom was neat & clean. Ideal hotel for someone who is not looking for a "fancy" place, but something neat and well presented.

Loved this little hotel. Very clean and staff were very very nice and helpful. Wifi in room too. Dont expect the Hilton though. It is small but the location is so so perfect. So glad we found it. One of the most famous markets in Florence was just outside the door. Also just outside the door was a chocolate shop... More

This hotel was a little tricky to find with no big signs inviting passing trade. After ringing the bell to what looked like a block of flats you go up to the 4th floor in a very cute old fashioned elevator. The room was small, but big enough to fit all that was needed. The welcome was easy and friendly... More

This is our last night of visiting Florence and staying at this wonderful B&B. Located about two blocks from the Ponte Vecchio , and an equal distance from Uffizi Gallery, this is where you want to be in Florence. It is easily within walking distance of Florence's main attractions: the Duomo, the Aca'demia, the Uffizi, and the Ponte Vecchio. Convenient... More

The price of the location is ideal, less than $100 USD. I had a private bathroom and double bed, couldn't complain. Everything was walking distance, especially the Uffizi.

This place is located just across the Piazza del Mercato. Just past the Piazza della Repubblica. It was very simple place to keep your things. The staff was very helpful. There is a shower in the rooms but no bathroom in the rooms. The rooms were big enough to match the price and location.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
