Recently voted one of the top five Bed & Breakfasts in all of Florence, Casa dei Tintori is a careful and accurate restoration of a 13th Century building in the historic center of the city.
While retaining its Medieval charm, the Bed and Breakfast is equipped with all the modern amenities, including air-conditioning, heating, private bathrooms with showers, TVs and a free fast Internet computer that enables guests to keep in touch with family and friends back home.
Each of the five private guest rooms is decorated in period furniture and fabrics in patterns and colors derived from the Florentine tradition of Medieval textile dyers.
We have recently added a new beautiful room with our usual quality level and services.
Guests staying in our new room in Volta dei Tintori No. 1 will have breakfast at a traditional coffee house a few steps from the building, given that the new room does not have a common area or access to the main house. Vouchers will be supplied at check-in.
Casa dei Tintori is located in a quiet, residential and very safe neighborhood with a variety of charming shops, good restaurants, and “ gelato “ stores that make life worth living.
This central B&B in Florence is only a short walk from famous landmarks like the Uffizi Museum, the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, the Ponte Vecchio which spans the Arno river, Santa Croce, Piazza della Signoria, the Duomo and many more.
If that's not enough, there are famous statues, monuments and art galleries everywhere you look.
There are, of course, high fashion stores, artisan and leather shops, open air markets and more restaurants than one can count.
The Medieval building has an interesting history. Eight centuries ago it was a dyers' house, a large wool weaving and textile dying workshop.
In fact the district originally teemed with similar craft workshops under the aegis of "Arte dei Tintori" (Art of the Dyers).
