I had a absolutely lovely stay at House Ghiberti. I can warmly recommend it - also for single tourists. It Is perfectly situated in Florence. I enjoyed everything, lovely rooms, nice compliments, good basic breakfast, lovely owners, good mattress! I will come back for sure!

Amazing property - an former first floor apartment in historic building, but has a lift (elevator). Incredibly comfortable - huge bed - with spotless, well appointed bathroom. Room includes own computer, headphones for TV and audio system, tea coffee and minibar. Nice simple modern decor. Also in B&B - sauna and jacuzzi, terrace to sit outside; nice breakfast room. The owners could not be more helpful and attentive. Location right in city centre was fantastic

I am so glad I chose this wonderful place to stay in during my 3 nights in Florence. It is extremely central & the room I was in was very quiet with an extremely comfortable bed. The owners are polite and professional, willing to offer help when asked. There is a jacuzzi and a sauna, which are great to relax in after hours of walking around the city. They provide you with a towelling robe for a very small charge. The bedroom and bathroom were tastefully decorated with everything you could need: mini bar, safe, tv, computer, wifi, writing desk, complimentary toiletries, make-up magnifying mirror, hairdryer, powerful hot shower. The buffet breakfast included a range of cereals, teas, coffee, juices, cold cuts, breads, yoghurts, jams and marmalade, fruit, croissants, a machine to boil your own eggs and home-made cake. The B&B is a safe,welcoming place in the heart of the city. If I come to Florence again, I will DEFINITELY be staying here!

Tourist House Ghiberti is in such a good location that we arrived the SMN train station at about 1:30, got our two Firenze cards at the place across from the station, walked to the Tourist House, checked in, got settled, and were at the Accademia just after 3:00... all on foot! Claudio graciously managed our luggage into and out of the historic elevator, painstakingly explained everything in our room, and basically was pleased when we were pleased during our 3-night stay. I'm glad that he showed us an electronic gizmo, to plug into the outlet, should there be a mosquito, because there was a mosquito our second night. I'm glad that he'd reminded us to bring swimsuits, because after doing so much walking, the jacuzzi felt good. My husband was a little disappointed that he couldn't use the computer in the room to download pictures onto the thumbdrive; but, all it meant was we had to be a bit more judicious in our picture-taking. Our room looked out onto a hospital; so, I asked about sirens. But, indeed, as Claudio said, there weren't any. The double windows kept out street noise. The room had a safe. The road from the train station was cobble-stoned; so, we were glad for our sturdy Samsonite wheels... cheap-quality suitcases probably woildn't make the journey unscathed. And, in fact, there are shops across fromhe SMN station selling suitcases.

We stayed six nights at Ghiberti while we explored Florence for the second time. The location was convenient to all our interests. The breakfast offered a very good selection of tasty items. Housekeeping was efficient and kept our room comfortable and inviting. We did get some street noise at night but we live in a very quiet California location so city dwellers probably would not be disturbed. Overall, an excellent choice to stay for a visit to this wonderful city.

This B&B is in a very central location - just a 5 minute walk from the Duomo, but on a quiet side street. It is a short walk from the train station. It was great to be able to go back to the room for a break in the afternoon. The room was clean and relatively spacious, with a very large, comfortable bed. The satellite TV had a few English channels, mainly news channels. The breakfast had a good selection - meat, cheese, boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, and sweets. We used the hot tub one afternoon, which was a nice break. Our room faced a courtyard, so was quiet.

We stayed here for 4 nights and were really happy with everything. Location is great just one block from the Duomo and only 15 mins walk from train station. Our room was at the back, was large with lovely ensuite. Room was quiet, breakfast was good. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at the Tourist House Ghiberti after reading all the wonderful Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed! The owner and his wife are very friendly and helpful! The room was lovely and the breakfast was great! What more could one ask! We were also very pleased that the owner made reservations for us at one of the tourist sites and also called a cab on the day of our departure! I would highly recommend this B & B!

I first stayed at Tourist House Ghiberti 11 years ago, as part of a 75th birthday trip for my mom. Our stay was memorable, and I had hoped to one day return. My husband and I visited Florence a few weeks ago, and had the pleasure of returning to this B&B. Claudio greeted us warmly and was as delightful as I recalled. You couldn't ask for a better location in Florence - easy walking distance to so many sights. The rooms are clean and well appointed (our room was exceptionally large as was the bathroom). The breakfast room is cheerful, and the selection of food was adequate to start the day. All in all, an excellent choice of lodging for Florence.

Great location, clean room, friendly and helpful owners. Place is only 2 blocks from the Duomo. Room and bathroom are very large. Bathroom lighting is great! Breakfast is plentiful and good, but simplistic. It is ~ 15 minute walk from the train station. We didn't drive, but we were told parking is a challenge. No UBER in Florence. Taxi drivers are crazy.
