The Hotel Owners are Cheats

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 25, 2014

I had a bad experience staying at this hotel. The price is too high for the standard of the place and the service levels. You can easily stay at a better service 3 star hotel for lesser price.

One month after checkout they randomly charged my credit card. This is theft.
Avoid this place!

B&B in the heart of Florence

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 9, 2008

The Tourist House Ghiberti is a quiet bed and breakfast in the historic centre of Florence, just one block north of the Duomo and a short walk to all the other major sights.

Breakfast, which was served in a separate dining room, is included with your stay and it had a assortment of cereal, fruit, pastries, meats, cheeses and a large selection of tea. Everything we had was very fresh.

We had helpful service for our entire stay from Claudio, the owner. When we arrived, he went through the room with us to show us how everything worked and then took us through the whole place to point everything out. He was also able to book a reservation for us to the Galleria dell'Accademia, where you will find the statue of David.

The rooms have a contemporary style, while keeping with Florentine tradition. Everything was also very clean. There was free wireless internet in the room, and there is a computer with internet in the room as well. The building is air conditioned. They also have satellite t.v. and a selection of dvd's for free.

Outside of the rooms, there is a relaxing jacuzzi, which is large enough for several people. There is also a steam room, but we didn't have a chance to use it.

To get to the B&B from street level, there are quite a few stairs. There is an elevator, but it is small and slow so we only used it to bring our luggage up and down.

The building used to be the studio/shop of Lorenzo Ghiberti, a local artist who specialized in sculptures and metalworking. He created the very intricate doors of the bapistery of Florence's cathedral.

We paid 158 Euro per night.

Directions: From Florence SMN, head south on Via Panzani then Via de Cerretani until you reach the Duomo. Stay on the north of the Duomo until Via dei Servi. Then take a right on Via Bufalini. It is on your right and look for the sign on the door buzzer.

This is a bed and breakfast run like a hotel. The staff is a bit impersonal but very informative. The facilties are very good. Our room had double paned glass in the bedroom to reduce the street noise but the bathroom did not. All in all it was very clean, modern and conveniently located. The room price included a buffet breakfast, which was adequate.

Unique Quality: Free Internet access, your own phone/fax number, jacuzzi and sauna available for use.

Directions: Behind the Duomo, across from the S.Maria Nuova Ospedale ambulance entrance.
