torino, italia erica e fabio (2011-03-24 09:12:22)
Siamo stati a Casa Rovai per un week end e abbiamo trovato un posto gradevole,elegante. Accoglienza puntuale e discreta e servizi efficientissimi. Ci sono stati utilissimi in modo particolare gli ottimi consigli sulle attivita cultutali: mostre, spettacoli e i ristoranti che nella zona sono molti. Ottima la torta fatta in casa tutte le mattine, quella al cioccolato poi merabigliosa!! Da un tocco speciale alla colazione.

We had a great time at Casa Rovai. They are very good value, especially for big group: we where 4 couples, and we have had 4 double rooms with ensuite bathroom. The location is perfect - just 5 minutes from Duomo and Uffizi Gallery. The staff were knowledgable, very friendly and particularly helpful in organising our transfer from the airport and for the reservations for the museums. They also left some tuscan red wine, who was very nice for our wedding celebration! The rooms themselves were spacious and comfortable and they provided a fantastic breakfast with a fantastic homemade cake.

The rooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean. The staff were warm, friendly and very helpful. It was quiet and close to everything. And you could find a few good cheep restaurants near there. I felt at home...away from home.

Port Saint Lucie, Florida Linne Esposito (2011-03-24 08:33:50)
This is a wonderful guest house for a bargain price. Rooms are spacious and well fournished, everything works, it's spotlessly clean, so conveniently located (between Santa Croce and the Duomo), good and abundant breakfast, the rooms have frescoes.... The staff is warm, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. Very warm and personable atmosphere. It is truly such a deal!

Montreal, Canada Dianne Ellen (2011-03-24 08:31:03)
Absolutely fantastic, central location, great breakfast, friendly multilingual reception people, clean and comfortable rooms, quiet and peaceful after full days of sightseeing... all at a fantastic price. You have to be able to lug your baggage up 2 flights of stairs - no elevator - but if you have no problem with that then this is the place to stay. I would go back in a flash.
