Giovani was an absolute angel. We had a late check in and he arranged it without any extra charges. The place is easy to ring, room are spacious, and clean. It's really quite at night even tho the B &B is located near the Main Street. Will definitely recommend this place! Awesome


The owner is very friendly and recommended us some places to visit and to eat! The hostel is very clean and quiete. The location is optimal, near to Ponte Vecchio. We advise it.

We had a good night at Franz house. Nice location in the centre at one of the bridges, auhentic building en nice entry. The rooms where clean en well furnitured. The staff was kind as we could leave our luggage here before check-in and after check-out. Would come back here on my future visist of Firenze.

I stayed in a standard double bed private with shared bathroom, my experience in general was good, the hostel was clean and the location is good, the area has a good atmosphere at night. We met Giovanni (the receptionist) and he looked reserved and quiet but he was helpful, just one advice, be careful with the check-out time if you're planning to pay at that moment because Giovanni is not there the 24hrs. and you have to pay him in cash.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Franz House has not a 24h reception (as clearly written in booking site). Payment is only cash (as clearly written in booking site). Check out time is between 8.00 am and 10.30 am. If you need to leave earlier it is your responsibility to provide payment at arrival or the day before check out. I received an email from you (in the night) where you communicated that the train departure was the following day at 5.20 a.m. So you had only the possibility of leaving money (cash) in the room.
