We do recommend this BnB. Everything perfect, quiet and with a kind attention from the owner. Great discovery at 200m from Ponte Vecchio

Perfect location for walking everywhere you need to in Venice. No air conditioning but the rooms were still cool enough in August with the windows open. The kitchen and balcony area were a wonderful bonus. Would stay again!
The best B&B place I've ever stayed! The owner is extremely helpful and kind!
Thank you for being such a great host. Alain was ready to answer all our questions. The place was in a perfect location. We enjoyed our stay. It was easy to get around to see the sights. It got hot at night but the fans helped. Excellent wifi connection, very safe and clean, would definitely recommend it.
We booked a room for three and the room was spacious and clean. Alain was very friendly and accommodating, he gave us great tips about what there was to see in Florence and the best areas for what we might be interested in. The location was great - within walking distance to major attractions and in a nice neighbourhood. There is a kitchen with a fridge and free milk, also a coffee machine (no cooking facilities though). We enjoyed our stay and can recommend this B&B!
The rooms are very hot during the summer. Hard to sleep. But everything else was great!!
Alain is such a lovely host, he made everything about our stay on Florence enjoyable!! Highly recommend this B&B 👍🏼
Loved this place. However you cannot be late to check in. We were 25 minutes late due to a delayed train and could not check in until late at night (we had luggage and 4 hours to kill so this was inconvenient). The owner was very nice and gave us many recommendations. Free breakfast consisting of croissants, coffee and Nutella provided. The place was very quite and homey. Great location. We would definitely stay here again.
The owner and manager is extremely helpful and friendly. Due to the extreme weather conditions in Italy during our stay (excessively hot) the time spent at the B & B was very unconfortable because there is no air conditioning. We had a large room for 3 people and 2 fans, which was not enough. Also, guests should be made aware of the flights of stairs to get to the apartment, which is difficult to climb, particularly in hot conditions, for older people like my brother who is almost 70.
Alain was the sweetest and nicest person we had come across our whole trip, he gave us the whole low down on the B&B along with things to do in florence and many other helpful hints! He was very quick to respond to emails and was even so kind to book us a taxi for our early departure. I can not say enough amazing things about him and our stay here, we were VERY central in Florence and our room was ADORABLE with the most amazing view! I will stay here again.
Il Magnifico is an ideal place to stay in Florence. Right on the banks of the Arno and not far from Ponte Vecchio and the city center, the ability to walk most places is great. Alain is an incredibly gracious host that will give you a great run down of the hostel as well as what to do and see in Florence and how to find some great local spots to eat. The hostel itself is a enjoyable place to stay. Going out the door to the right you'll find a park just up the street with a great outdoor bar.
Great Location!! No AC but the building is built in a way that it is cooler, which was helpful for the 100 degree weather we experienced.
Alex is the kindest, most welcoming, and by far the most helpful host I have had for any hostel I've been to. He gave us a detailed description of the area and showed us places to go for sight seeing or for restaurants that will give you great food but save you money. If you're looking for a comfortable, homey environment when you're traveling then be sure to stay here!
We were a group of 6, and we needed a place to stay because the other hostel (tourist house Santa Croce) we booked was disgusting. The owner was awesome, and let us use his extra room because we had no place to stay that night. There was complimentary breakfast and wine. VERY VERY VERY CLEAN. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to any of my friends and family. One of the best hostels I stayed in during my European trip.

This is the place to stay when visiting Florence! The B&B is right by the water and within walking distance of all of the major Florence sites. The host is incredibly nice and provides his guests with helpful information like sites to visit, foods to order and more. There was breakfast as well as coffee that could be made at any time. Linens, towels and bathrobes were provided and the room was cleaned daily with breakfast food restocked. Definitely would go back here if I went back to Florence!
Thank you Alain! You were the best and we truly enjoyed our stay. I hope to revisit soon!

Great place to stay very accommodating, wish they have a laundry facilities.. other than that great...
Great stay here during our two night stay in Florence. Location is just outside the city so it's quiet but just seconds away from the busy-ness. Wifi and all other facilities were perfect. FYI - B&B is a cold breakfast. I would certainly recommend this to couples, families or other groups wanting a quieter stay.
I absolutely loved staying at Il Magnifico! The room was well heated with great light. I loved that I had views of the river and the Duomo - it was like living in my dream room for a few nights! Free breakfast consisted of croissants & toast crisps with tea & juice. It was all laid out on a table in my room and replenished daily, so I didn't even have to walk out into the kitchen. Short walk from restaurants and main attractions. Alain was helpful and kind. I would definitely stay here again!
