Florence Old Bridge Bed and Breakfast
Florence Old Bridge Bed and Breakfast is a very short walk to Ponte Vecchio. Also nearby are the Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens. It is an easy walk within ten minutes to Piazza della Signoria and the Duomo. The location has plenty of shops as well as bars and restaurants on your doorstep.
Please note that Florence Old Bridge B & B doesn’t have a reception staff. When you show up you have to register at the La Scaletta Hotel across the street because it is the overflow from that hotel.
Florence Old Bridge Bed and Breakfast is a set of the six guestrooms in a residence, on the third floor like a suite. There is a small elevator in the building. It offers clean and spacious rooms. You could say big for Europe standards. The rooms have a flat-screen TV, desk, small refrigerator and an air-conditioner. Beds are very comfortable. The private bathroom is a nice size. They are equipped with complimentary toiletries, a hair dryer and decent shower. The staff will come by each day to make the bed and clean the room. Free Wi-Fi for guests is also available.
The multilingual staff is very friendly and helpful. They will be more than happy to make restaurant reservations and offer tips on museums and attractions to visit.
Ironically breakfast is not offered here even though it is in the name. You are allowed to go across a street to La Scaletta Hotel where breakfast is plentiful and fresh. The rooftop dining area provides a 360 view of Florence and is a great way to start the day. Unfortunately it isn’t included in the price. However there are plenty of cafes nearby were you could get a coffee and croissant.
There is taxicab stand, bus stop and supermarket close by. Private parking is available at a location nearby. The parking is a separate fee.
The location is a main advantage for Florence Old Bridge B & B. It is a perfect choice for people who do not need hotel services. It is definitely very good value for the money and I would recommend it.
