I was so excited to stay at LaLuna guest house. Location is very good and close to main city attractions. Owner/manager Riccardo is very friendly and helpful. Very nice interior inside with old 18th century fresco on walls. PS: If you staying on saturday ask Riccardo about best Florentine steaks.

Highly recommended!

Our stay in Florence was outstanding! Riccardo was an awesome host. LaLuna is in a great location close to the train station, the city center, and very near to many restaurants. The room was very clean, the AC worked great, the bathroom was modern with a good shower. Riccardo was very kind and made our visit to Florence more enjoyable. We appreciated that he took the time to go over the map and show us places to visit and eat. We highly recommend La Luna guesthouse if you are visiting Florence. We will definite stay here again. Thanks Riccardo!!

Fantastic Host, Location and Room1

We were a family of 4 coming for Florence for the first time. Riccardo's English is phenomenal and he gave us useful tips and advice via email well before we got there. He even booked us tickets at non-tourists prices for a much desired Tuscany tour that was beautiful and a great pace. The pensioni is a 8-10 minute walk from train station and the rooms were clean, beautiful while my kids adored the extras like clean slippers and chocolates on the bed. Riccardo made sure we had ample water and snack for the day. Breakfast options were perfect. In a pinch, Riccardo even helped me with a small emergency I needed in terms of getting antibiotics. He really goes out of his way and knows the city, and the needs of travellers! A must stay-if in Florence again, that's our first stop. Thanks, Riccardo!

Best bed and breakfast experience

I was recently in a florence on vacation and my stay at La Luna Guesthouse added such a beautiful touch to my vacation. It is a very beautiful bed and breakfast. My room and bathroom were extremely clean and very nicely decorated. The art work on the ceiling and the walls are gorgeous! The manager (Ricardo) is one of the kindest and most helpful people I have ever met! He really bent over backwards to make my stay comfortable. The location of the guesthouse is also perfect! It is very close to the train station and within walking distance of some of the main attractions in a Florence. There are different options for food in the neighbourhood. Overall, I can't speak highly enough of my experience at La Luna. I highly recommend it to everyone! I know I will be staying there on my next trip to Florence.

Visit to Florence, May 2014

We just spent two weeks visiting cities in Italy, Austria and Switzerland. My husband and our son needed a clean spacious room close in to the centers of the cities we visited so we could walk to the centres for dinner, sightseeing, etc. We also had a car which was a problem in some areas with limited parking. LaLuna was terrific. Free parking. We walked ten minutes to the center of Florence. Five minutes to the river. The street is one minute from public transportation but that is not needed to visit Florence.This small boutique had private rooms with private baths that were modern and up to date. Our room held a king and a twin and a beautiful painting on the ceiling. Ricarrdo, the owner, was informative, generous, and very helpful. For the price, you will not be able to find a better value. We loved it and will stay again the next time we visit.... The Bills

Great Ambience!

My stay at La Luna Guesthouse was also my first time staying in Italy. What a wonderful time... The atmosphere at La Luna is wonderful: the architecture, decoration and the warm service make it a pleasure, for sure. I really appreciated the ease of access to the local attractions. I hope one day to make it back to Italy, and to La Luna. Thanks Aussie Ness.

Stayed at La Luna with 2 of my friends during our Florence trip, and we'd say we're throughly impressed with the facilities available to us, as well as the general cleanliness of the property. I believe our host (Riccardo) had recently refurbished the property and most, if not all, of the facilities were top notch. Riccardo was incredibly hospitable and was of great help to us when we were planning out our stay in Florence. We'd definitely recommend La Luna to anyone who desires a pleasant stay in Florence.

nice and clean, good location.
