The chic Tourist House Ghiberti offers five simply decorated but luxuriously equipped rooms in central Florence. With extras like a Jacuzzi, sauna and sunny terrace, this B&B is a relatively affordable deal.
The bright guest rooms are large and done up in antique wood and wrought iron furniture. Small techie touches abound, such as fiber-optic lights, mounted flat-screen TVs with DVD players and bedside headphone jacks and speakers. Each room even has a computer with free Wi-Fi and a connection to the reception’s printer.
Spacious modern bathrooms are covered in large white tiles with black borders. A few have tubs (ask ahead). Complimentary and luxurious toiletries are made from olive oil, and full sized bottles are available for purchase.
The Ghiberti’s central location is near the Duomo and not far from Santa Croce. Do note that it’s across the street from the city’s central hospital, which means that you may to hear a siren despite the soundproof windows.
We loved the Tuscan accents, like paintings by local artists and mosaic-and-terracotta floors. The highlight, though, was a vine-covered terrace just off the reception, with its wooden chairs, outdoor couch and, to our delight, a hot tub and sauna.
Breakfast is included.

About the Tourist House Ghiberti neighborhood
You can't miss Brunelleschi's magnificent dome atop the rosy marble Cathedral. It's the obvious central meeting point in Florence and the tourist hub of the city. Here, you're in the vicinity of practically everything: the Uffizi Museums, Palazzo della Signoria, the San Lorenzo Market and the Accademia. The big guns in Italian fashion are located along Via Tornabuoni and there are plenty of cafes and dining options.
