Newly refurbished in November 2009, B&B Maison is in a beautiful ancient palazzo complete with frescoed ceilings and original tiled floors.
We offer you a choice of either a family room, triple, twin or double room with a private bathroom.
The rooms have a view of Bruneschelli's Cupola & Giotto's Campanille. They are large, bright rooms and the B&B is central heated throughout. Hot water is available 24 hours. We can arrange a time with you when you want breakfast, for cooked breakfasts or breakfast in bed (!) the earliest we start is 8.30am. If you want breakfast earlier we can arrange a continental breakfast for you.
B&B Maison is perfectly located for those who wish to be in the centre of the city, without the inconvenience and noise of being surrounded by pubs and clubs, yet we're just a 10 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station.
We have great knowledge of Florence and Tuscany (and beyond!) and we love to help our guests decide where best to spend their time and money in Florence. On arrival you will be greeted with a friendly face and a welcome drink (and most likely a friendly lick from our puppy!). We will show you a map of Florence and explain where everything is, what we think are must sees and what we think you would do best to avoid. If you want we can book tours, winetasting, horseriding, restaurants, spa days, whatever you want, just ask (we dont charge you or take commmissions on bookings). Or if you prefer just sit on the couch and use our free wifi to book something for yourself!
Our advertised prices include:
Wifi (a laptop is available for you to use if you dont have your own however a security deposit is required)
Linens and towels
Map and description of Florence
Tea and Coffee
Welcome drink (we can offer you something a little stronger than tea or coffee if you prefer!)
Use of guidebooks and our bookswap
Friendly, knowledgeable staff
If you're booking with us as a gift for somebody, or just want to indulge, let us know and we help you organise extra special surprises like champagne and chocolates in the room for when you arrive or how about a horse and carriage ride around Florence?
Whatever you want from your holiday in Florence, we can tailor make it to your needs without charging you the earth for the privilege!
