Ridolfi Guest House provided an excellent option within easy walking distance to both the centre-storico (historical centre) and the Stazione Santa Maria Novella (central train station). Useful as we had to catch a train to/from Rome. For only 43 euros we had a comfortable room with breakfast and wifi included. Our host was extremely accommodating - making us some delicious...

We had a really nice time at Ridolfi's b&b. It was perfectly clean and welcoming, and our hosts were really lovely. In a beautiful building very close to market/duomo etc. Our host gave us some wonderful recommendations for restaurants and we were so happy to have chosen here to stay. Great wifi, very quiet, very safe, kitchen with fridge, nice...

I was dismayed at the quality of accommodation I'd gotten in London and Paris, so when I arrived in Florence with relatively low expectations of the establishment, I was pleasantly surprised not only at the level of service I received, but also the quality of amenities Ridolfi Guest House provided -- all this, considering that it cost the least! The...

It was great to living in this B&B. The host was so nice who will give you any advise for travelling. And the room is clean and organized. The breakfast was nice. Not far from the train station. For the first time stay there might need a bit of time by searching but if you ask people will be much...

This place doesn't have any signage you can see from the road, so it's a little tricky to find, but just use the address. The room was a good size and was clean. Breakfast was included in our cost...basically croissants, jelly, etc. There was an exterior private bath right across from the room. Only complaint about it is you have...

Hotels are quite expensive in florence. This guesthouse gives a very good value for money. The rooms were nice, we had a private bathroom located on the corridor. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was prepared every morning and we could have it in our room (was nothing special). Negative point are the weird check in times. If you do...

This guest house resides at a great location. Ridolfi Guest House is located just outside the city center. Walking to the city center is a joy due to the many interesting things you can see on the way. It only takes a maximum of 20 minutes, and then you are at the city centrum. We found the best cheap authentic...

Ridolfi Guest House is only a short walk from the train station. It is on a busy street, and our room faced the street so was too noisy to sleep with the window open. The room was up about 3 flights of stairs, but there was a little elevator for when you have baggage, which was good. Eliseo was helpful...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A welcome from who has transformed this roomy and comfortable apartment into a bed & breakfast. I have been a traveller for many years and, although everyone of us is different, some fundamental aspects are universal: the price/quality relation, the availability and the discretion of the management and staff, the attention to cleanliness. Moreover the location of the structure in respect of the historical centre, the most important trade fairs (fashion - the Fortezza da Basso for example) and of the main railway station S. M. Novella is guaranteed. We can offer you all of this in truly spacious and comfortable rooms situated in an unusually silent street; every day, we work with the aim of improving the quality and the comfort for you, our future visitors. Upon your arrival, for those interested, we are happy to offer you a coffee or a welcoming aperitif ... more   less
