This elegant guest house offers warm hospitality and an atmosphere of genteel ‘Old Florence’, steps from Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery.

Occupying the upper floors of a 15th-century townhouse with traditional boxed wooden ceilings, it is decorated in classic Florentine style with antique furniture, oriental rugs and paintings. The two best rooms have full-on views of Florence’s most famous piazza.

The welcome is warm and the service very personalised thanks to the hands-on approach of the owners. A delicious breakfast is served at a huge oval table.

The location couldn’t be more central; all the main sights, both north and south of the river, are within a 5- to 10-minute walk (15 at the most).

Surrounding area

Piazza Signoria is usually choc-a-block with tourists and tour groups, but the hotel is set on a narrow side street and thus feels slightly removed. It is flanked by tall, equally ancient palazzos.

Via dei Magazzini itself escapes the worst of the rivers of tourists that characterise this part of the city. The whole area is free of traffic.

There is easy access to a plethora of shops, restaurants and cafes.
