Sognando Firenze
Ranked #41 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 July 2017

This bb is a lovely twenty minute stroll from city centre. Bus stops at the door very convenient. Buy a bus ticket from loads of shops to get on the bus. Some nice restaurants in the area if you don't want to go into city. Rooms are spotlessly clean as are the bedding,towels etc. Bed seemed new and firm and comfortable. Breakfast is continental lots if choice and very relaxing atmosphere. Shower in our room was rather small.
Gibson who works there and the owners make you feel very welcome. Would stay there again.

This B&B was just right for us to spend three nights in Florence. From here is was a 20 minutes walk to the city centre so we could easily return to our room during the day. Although the buildng is located at a very busy road the room was really quiet. It was air conditioned, big enough and clean. The shower was pretty small but ok. Breakfast included toast with cheese, ham and salami, muesli, joghurt and delicious pastries. We really enjoyed the great hospitality here. WiFi was free and surprisingly we got a free parking slot right in front of the building.

This is a fabulous little B&B where the staff go above and beyond to help you (Gibson in particular). In a quiet location a little out of the centre, it's very charming in its appeal. I stayed for a business trip, which was perfect. When staying here you must try the restaurant Gigi Trattoria, which is truly delicious.

This is our first time in Florence, the owners (new owners) went out of their way to ensure we felt at home and had as much information as it's possible to take on board within just a few days.

The location is ideally just outside the city centre (20 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio, 40 minutes to the famous cathedral and all the other palaces and museums.

The decoration is clean (new) and tasteful, the beds have been replaced with new ones.

The whole premises benefits from air con (and you need it in June), with a handful of local restaurants within a block along with local shops.

Room Tip: One of the rooms has it's own private breakfast space.

We always stay this side of the river when we are in Florence as it takes you away from the hussle and bussle of the City centre. This is a little further out than we have tried before, but no worse for that as it made us go and look for some new places to eat. The staff her are wonderful, the building clean tidy and very well presented. All that you need and nothing that you do not. Great breakfast, with good coffee and delicious cakes from the local deli. It worked well for us, was great value and we would certainly return on our next visit to the beautiful City of Florence. Loved it.

Room Tip: This is a B&B not a hotel, so bedrooms, a breakfast room and a key to let you come and go as you...

Wonderful place close to the centre woth clean and nice room, good beds, all the information needed and best of all is the friendly service of owner Giovanni and his companion Gibson. Always helpful, they serve the best cappucchino and even homemade chocolate cake! My mother, sister and I had a great stay and will be back definitely!

This charming B&B is on the first floor of a residential building. The rooms are well-appointed, and breakfast was delicious. Being outside the city walls, it is a bit of a hike from the train station, but well worth the walk. There are restaurants close by, as well as a pharmacy and other shops. The staff are very helpful. The only drawback is that the desk is not open during the lunch hours and late at night.
