Good location, local restaurant Zio Gigi was good, entertaining, and reasonable. The Tourist House is a good choice for a place to stay.

This was our first time using a B&B. The location was PERFECT! Just around the corner from the Duomo. Very clean, nice breakfast which consisted of some meats, cheese, pastries, eggs to hard boil, yogurt and breads. After a long day of walking it was nice to come back and be able to choose from DVD's to watch. The only channel we found through our travels to Rome, Florence & Venice was CNN. We were so excited to be able to watch something other than that. It was a great touch!!

Just one turn away, and you will reach the Duomo. From the Duomo (central of the city) you can reach anywhere easily. Just imagine how near it is. This B&B was the most un-B&B-like I've been to - The staffs are so professional. The infrastructure setup is complete and immaculate. From free wifi (with pc) to dvd movies, sauna, breakfast room, just name it. Stay here and experience yourself.

Tip: There is a DIY laundry (Wash & Dry) at Via dei Servi, n°105/R. Also about 8 minutes away.

I stayed in 10 B&B's/hotels on my trip to Italy and Tourist House Ghiberti was definitely the best. The bedroom and bathroom are large, clean and inviting. I was skeptical about being in a room next to reception (I'd had several bad experiences with rooms near reception) but had nothing to worry about as it was very quite. I was also concerned that being opposite the hospital the sirens would be an issue during the night but I didn't hear a thing during the night.
It's very centrally located and only a 2 minute walk to the Duomo and 10 minutes from the train station.. The free fast WIFI was great but there was also a computer in the room and a DVD player with an extensive list of titles. Breakfast was plentiful with an extensive selection.
I would definitely stay there again.

This is a professionally run B&B with huge rooms that are quiet, clean and really inviting. What a pleasure to return to the Tourist House Ghiberti after a day out and about. The staff are always helpful and courteous. They helped us find a guide for the Uffizzi. Birgit Enslin is knowledgeable, charming, witty and made our visit to the huge museum truly memorable. Outstanding guide and hope to use her again. Breakfast is served in a small bright room with a terrace and offers a wide selection of bread, cheeses, fruit salad and juices and boiled eggs. Such an attentive staff in a place just 5 minute walk from the Duomo made for a wonderful stay. Great value for money. Hope to return.

This is hands down the best B&B I have ever been to. The hospitality and warmth made our trip memorable. Lorenzo is an excellant host

The location is unbeatable, 2 min from the duomo and walking distance everywhere. But its not the location, but the small touches that make this B&B stand out.

Free Wifi, DVD player in room with a wide selection of DVDs to choose from, good choice of books, an outdoor terrace to relax in, bedside speakers for the TV with an option for earphones, and above all , a PC in each room. Just a lot of thoughtfull planning.

The breakfast was very good. Overall, excellant

Room Tip: Be nice to Lorenzo ;-)

Just 20 minutes easy walk from the railway station and bus station, a mere two minutes walk from the Duomo, five minutes from the Uffizzi and Accademia etc. It's hard to envisage anywhere better situated for a stay in the centre of Florence. More than that, however, the Ghiberti is a comfortable, well-equipped and charmingly run B&B hotel.

Our room was large, had a HUGE comfortable bed, and all the facilities anyone staying for a midwinter week could want. Breakfast was fresh and varied, in comfortable, bright surroundings. The ability to get a tray of tea and biscuits in the room for something like €2 late in the afternoon was welcome to us, resting between a day's culture and an evening's dining out.

Very good. We hope to be able to visit again.
