      Individual guest reviews

        10.0

        The hotel was at very convenient location, just 2 minutes from the city market and 10 minutes from the Duomo. The host - Andrea was very hospitable, and gave us suggestions what to see and recommended a few good local restaurants. We tried some of them and it was worth it

      • Couple
        9.6

        Firstly, the location of Cicerone Guest House is very good, just a 6-7 minute-walk from Florence Central Station to there. Secondly, the staff was really nice and fluent in English, there was no difficulty communicating with the staff. Thirdly, the accommodation in Cicerone Guest House was really nice, with cool air-conditioner, comfortable and soft bed, nice washroom and spacious room. Fourthly, the rent of Cicerone Guest House was reasonable.

        The wifi connection could have been improved - wifi signal could have reached the whole Guest House.

        Staff is amazingly helpful. We got very warm welcome and a bunch of advices - where to go, where to eat, etc... Rooms are very clean with natural light (bit noisy because of the street) and good equipment. Location is just perfect - 5 min on foot to main attractions. Close to train station as well.

      • Couple
        5.8

        The staff, especially Fabio, was very accomodating with suggestions on what to see, eat, reservations, and how to get around the city.

        The placement of the shower seemed as if it was an after-thought. It was in the corner of the bathroom, next to the toilet with a narrow area to shower without bumping into the curtain. It was impossible to maneuver without rubbing against the curtain. To me. this is unsanitary. Most everything got wet because the shower was an open area concept.

      • Group of friends

        The staff are very hospitality, very nice, give us a lot of useful information such as places to visit, suggested routes, recommanded us a very nice and local restaurant at a reasonable price. Very helpful and will absolutely stay there again!!!

        The only one thing is the hostel located at 1st floor and they don't have the lift...It's a bit difficult to carry a heavy luggage upstairs.

      • Single
        5.0

        One of the owners was very helpful and Gave us some great tips! The only thing we liked about the hotel.

        The worst hotel we ever stayed! At night we were waking up all the time because the thin and old windows we letting in all the awful noise from the street! It was a beginning of the week but we felt like in a middle of a drunk party till 4 in the morning with every scooter passing by sounding like a ferrari during the race due to the echo of narrow streets. Small Bugs in our beds were biting us all night long. The place looked like cheap dormitory inside as well.

      • Group of friends
        7.0

        The hotel owners were very friendly and helpful. Spoke excellent English. The room was realitively clean and comfortable. Right off of a pretty busy street, but it was quite in the room. Great location from the train station and the top tourist spots.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        The owners, Andrea and Fabio are wonderful hosts. Upon arrival they indicate the interesting places on a map (musea, restaurants, gelateria). The location of the guesthouse is ideal, on a walking distance from the main train station and close to musea, piazza's, etc. The rooms are air conditioned. Bring earplugs if you are not used to streetnoise during the night, as some rooms (like ours was) are located on Via Nazionale, a busy street, even during the nighttime. Breakfast at 'Mama Bar' was super. It's only a short walk from the guesthouse and you have the experience of taking your breakfast in a typical italian bar as many italians do.

        The shower was really small, a large person wouldn't fit in.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        The best thing about this place is the staff. Andrew was incredibly helpful in offering us both suggestions on what to see and of where to eat. The price was a bargain relative to its location and the prices of other places around Florence. It's a great place when you really just need a place to stay but plan on spending most of your time exploring the city!

        Good staff and cleanliness room

        Drainage of shower is no good

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        Clean, efficient, well located if you read the reviews you will see the staff is great and respectful of privacy.

        If driving and using gps know that it is located on a intersection corner and a floor above the street. The entrance is on Via Guelfa. (Gps directions brought us down Via Nazionale because it is on the corner) Italian city driving is notorious and we circled the block twice, prior to illegally parking and resuming the search on foot.

      • Family with children
        9.6

        Mario was very helpful with his advice on the city. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a nice attached bathroom. The guest house is near the train station and also within walking distance to all the sites in the city. Although our room was facing the street, it was nevertheless all quiet.

        The towel although big was however not quite absorbent. I suspect it is not all 100% cotton. Luggage storage was only available until 2.00 pm.

      • Couple
        7.4

        the hotel sits between the train station and the duomo. Owners are so kind and offer great information about the city.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Host was very helpful. Location is good and there are few supermarket around that you can buy what you need. Room is clean and spacious although a bit noisy sometime. If you are looking for budget guest house, this is definitely your choice.

      • Couple
        9.6

        The best guest house I've even stayed in Europe. 500meters to the railway station, 200meters to San Lorenzo market....Fabio is a handsome and helpful host, he gave us many suggestion~
