The Casa dei Tintori Bed & Breakfast in Florence enjoys a central position, ideal for visiting the city and its main points of interest. The bed and breakfast offers an elegant and welcoming atmosphere, cared after with passion by the owners. Its five rooms are each furnished in a different color that replicate the colors of the Florentine textile weaver's guild.
Casa dei Tintori is located in a medieval building from around the 13th century. This house, like many in the Santa Croce area, was used as a workshop for the weaving and dyeing of textiles, commercial enterprises that were located in the area. The "tintori" or textile dyers were, in fact, part of the Medieval artisan "corporations" or guilds that ruled the economic system at that time in Florence.
The comfort of a B&B
The B&B has five spacious rooms that host from one to four guests. All of the rooms have a private bathroom and are equipped with modern comforts, such as air conditioning, TV and safety deposit box. The antique furniture and the precious textiles, which remind of the colors of the Florentine textile weaver's guild, complete those cozy and charming rooms that the owners have recently restored and decorated with neither passion or genuine care spared.
The reception area offers a computer with a fast internet connection that guests can use at any time, at no extra charge.
The Santa Croce area
Being located in the historical center of Florence, guests can quickly and comfortably reach all of the main attractions in the city. Being located close to Piazza Santa Croce, in fact, places the B&B at an easy walking distance from the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio and all of the principal museums and monuments in Florence. The Santa Maria Novella train station is about 20 minutes walking distance from the bed and breakfast, which is then the perfect base from which to visit nearby cities in Tuscany.
Check-in can occur anytime after 2:00 p.m. on the day of arrival, while check-out has to be completed by 11:00 a.m. on the day of departure.
