Affittacamere Casa Billi0.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed here for three nights with my partner with the shared bathroom option. The room was clean and exactly what we needed to rest our heads after a day of touring around. The a/c was a lifesaver during the hot summer! I can't say enough good things about Lorenzo. As soon as I booked the hotel he emailed me right away to clarify that checkin was only during a certain time and that I needed to let him know when I planned to arrive. Unfortunately my plane was diverted coming into Florence and I missed the time I had promised. He was aware of the diverted flight and since my boyfriend arrived earlier than me we settled the bill the next morning. If you come late at night he can provide you the code to get in the building just make sure you reply to his email!!! The location is fabulous. A five minute walk to the duomo with restaurants and cafes everywhere. You are right next to the leather market and farmers market which are worth while visiting as well!
This place worked out perfectly - it's within walking distance from the main train station, the tour buses, the main attractions and surrounded by great eating establishments. The Mercato Centrale is one block up the road, with a great food court on the first floor. The rooms at Casa Billi are basic and very clean, and sharing a bathroom is not a big issue, especially since it is right across the hall and it appears that only a few people share it, not the whole place. Wifi works great, and owner is dedicated and kind. Definitely coming back here next time!
This is probably the favourite location for a stay in Florence. It is a short walk from Santa Maria Novella station in a slightly Bohemian street that offers a choice of bars (including a Brew Dog pub!), trattorias, pizzerias and mini-markets. It is about 200m from the Mercato Centrale, where you must go for the brilliant food, drink and atmosphere. The Medici Chapel is at the end of the street and from there it's an easy walk to the Duomo, etc. The rooms are basic, with wi-fi, tv and air-conditioning but your host, Lorenzo, can't do enough to help make your stay successful and rewarding. He will not only give advice on Florence (food, drink, visits) but will organise for you anything you want. Excellent value considering you are in the heart of such a tourist-oriented city.
Great location right outside the duomo. Our room was a bit dated and basic but it was clean and adequate for sleeping Lorenzo was friendly- you're able to keep your luggage at the hotel after you check in which is helpful Wifi not existent spotty at times Despite being very noisy outdoors the room was very quiet and was able to get a good nights rest Overall good no frills Basic room- shared bathroom
I was only here for three nights with my partner for a wedding,Apon arrival of casa billi which looks really nice from the outside,once you enter the building,you then make your way to a flight of stairs,from which casa billi is on the second,once entering casa billi,your then meet by the polite Italian lorenzo,he gives you all the info you could need in the best possible English he can,the rooms are well equipped and we're good enough for me n my partner to stay in.
Great room, confortable bed, clean bathroom, AC, centrally located at a 5 minute walk from the Duomo, loads of restraunts in the surrounding area and a friendly host (Lorenzo). The only "not so good" aspect was that we couldn't pay with a card like it was advertised. However, if you want good Value at an inexpensive place, seek no more because this is the place for you.
If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay for a few nights right in the centre of Florence, this fits the bill brilliantly. We stayed in one of the en-suite double rooms which was comfortable, clean and with a modern shower/toilet room. It overlooked a little courtyard so no street noise though some people were having a conversation in the corridor outside at about 3pm!! The location is perfect, just 5 mins from the main station and convenient for walking to all the major sights in the city centre. Breakfast is not provided but there are loads of cafés and restaurants in the adjoining roads including the amazing Mercato Centrale food hall and market. The owner is very helpful and access from the street is easy using the key or a temporary number-pad key code. Access is 24hr, but it might help to let them know roughly when you're planning to check in as there isn't someone on the desk all the time. Would definitely stay here again.
Close to the railway station and Duomo. Plenty of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Outside to the right a few meters away is a very good cafe with great coffee and sandwiches which opens early. The rooms are small but well maintained. Very good shower. OK air conditioning. The manager was helpful and friendly. Excellent wi-fi. Tiny TV. Fridge available.
Centrally located, ideal If you're on a budget and a hostel-like place where, only the essentials like towels and a clean room to sleep are covered. Definitely stay here. You'll be 5 min walk from Central train station, 5 min walk to the duomo, 2 min walk to Mercato Centrale and 10min to ponte veccio.
