FULL DISCLOSURE: B&B hosted me for two nights
This location of the popular B&B business budget hotel chain is a short hike east of the center, only a few minutes from Basilica di Santa Croce and the excellent eating options around Piazza Sant’ Ambrogio.
If you’re looking for a great value private room and want to avoid the hostels, this is your answer. Rooms are modern and minimalist, with excellent beds, fluffy duvets, crisp sheets and simple, clean bathrooms (hairdryer included). Rooms are also equipped with air conditioning, 34 inch panel TVs, desks and small, private balconies.
The generous buffet breakfast is not included in the price. The entire property has strong wi-fi coverage, which is free, but requires registration and delivery of username and password via SMS to a cell phone.
Being just outside Florence’s car restricted zone, people traveling by car will appreciate the street parking. There’s also a public garage nearby, charging 18 euros per day.
Small pets are welcome for a slight, additional fee.
