          • Single

            The staff was very helpful. They made every effort to make my stay enjoyable. Once when I got lost walking to the restauarant for dinner, one of the staff member picked me up in her car and delivered me to the restaurant!

            It is quite far from downtown attractions, train station, airport etc. Therefore, any sightseeing trip involves a bus ride, taxi or other means of transportation. It is also not located in a restaurant heavy area and the number of choices for food are adequate but limited.

          • Older travelers

            Hotel Rosary Gardens was a delight to stay in. It is located outside the city centre which might put some people off but for weary travellers wanting a peaceful nights sleep , we found a bonus. It was also very easy to reach with a local bus. The hotel staff were extremely helpful & friendly to us during our stay & made us feel very welcome. The room is one of the best we have stayed in during our many trips to Europe. It was roomy & light with a generous bed. The bathroom was also very clean and Iarger than usual. An added bonus for us was one of the best icecream shops in Florence 2 doors down , forget about the tourist trap ones near the Duomo. Also a fantastic supermarket stocked with every imaginable food item close by.

            Staff helpful. Room was nice and breakfast very good.

            Didn't like the scents they used in my room and some throughout the b&B. Very strong!

            Simply the best family hotel we have ever stayed at. Monica and her staff are incredibly nice and helpful - our children are still talking about it today. The rooms a very pretty and the high ceilings make them look even more spacious than they are, The bathrooms are impeccably clean. Good breakfast, excellent cappucino (ask for as many cups as you like), charming breakfast room (even if a bit on the small side). The English-style tearoom with free afternoon tea and drinks is an added plus. Excellent information service including ticket reservations. Perfect location: 10-15 minutes by bus to the centre of Florence, 5,minute by car to the exit routes to Siena and the Chianti villages. Secure car parking 50m down the road. Good local Pizza restaurant just next door - ideal for a relaxing late-evening snack after sightseeing. Will certainly stay there again if we come back to Tuscany.

            Nothing to report - we liked everything.

            The hotel is very chic and you are surrounded by tiny details thay show great attention by the host in every respect to ensure your comfort and to keep you pleasantly surprised in every respect. It is acceptably located from the city centre (a bus stop is 3-4 minutes away and it yakes another 10-15 minutes to get to the Uffizzi). They have helped us get reservations to the Uffizzi. Exactly next door there is an excelent restaurant well worth at least a visit and also a great ice cream shop. In the breakfast area we have had no queuing issues as other guests have reported here.

            Unfortunately the cleanliness of the room was not up to the standards we would have expected: apart from the occasional dust, the window curtains and drapes were simply dirty and we've had an awful surprise regarding the towels, which had lipstick on them and some black dirt. We had requested they be changed but the next day housekeeping got us new towels that were dirty again. We have found this sufficiently bothering and think it is a major drawback.

            very friendly and helpful staff. Very easily accessible to Florence as well as ideal for the local supermarket in order to purchase food. Local pizzeria expensive for what you get whilst the ice cream shop was excellent in terms of price, flavours and value for money.
