fantastic stay !!

4.8 on December 23, 2014

we had a great stay in this guest house, located not far from the city center in an upscale neighborhood, with many shops and restaurants not for tourists. the house is very beautiful, decorated in a Tuscan style, bright and very clean. the feeling of warmth and comfort is very pleasant and makes it truly unique stay. the host Roger was very hospitable and helpful.

Innkeeper Response
Dear Guest thank you very much for your kind appreciation. All the best Ruggero

lovely guest house in the heart of Florence

this b&b was one of the best places on our honey moon trip. the attention to details is in every corner of the house: I do not know how anything could have been better presented. Ruggero was a great host: every morning a fantastic continental breakfast with boiled eggs, cheese, home made cakes & a good italian espresso coffee! don't forgot: a short walk up the road (near main locations but in a quiet and safe place) will give you an unforgettable view of Florence.

Innkeeper Response

Very clean, beautifully decorated, every detail covered, very comfy bed, spacious, with a fantastic continental breakfast in a sunny living room! Ruggero is a nice person and he speaks English very well. We had access to tea/coffee/water 24h/24. Everything was great!

Innkeeper Response
Dear Host I'm very happy that your stay at the Palagetto Guest House was pleasant and relaxing. I thank you for the appreciation on my knowledge of the English language: I try to study and improve all the time ! All the best Roger
