Great central location in Florence, ideal for seeing Florence on a budget
Antica Posta B&B might be small, with just 5 bedrooms, but this just means that the owner Elena has a chance to offer great services and ensure her guests have the best vacation in Florence.
The spacious and bright rooms all have their private bathroom and air-conditioning, while the entire B&B is covered with free WiFi internet. Guests can share a common dining area and use of the kitchen, perfect if you want to eat in one evening after a long day out sightseeing in Florence. Get the best rest ever every night by choosing your pillows when you arrive: firm or soft, high or low. Another great option is if you eat light at breakfast: book the room without the buffet breakfast included and head out and enjoy a cappuccino and pastry at a cafè downtown. You can also get there with one of the free bikes available just for guests. These are just some of the small ways in which Elena takes care of the varying needs of guests staying at Antica Posta.

PILLOW “BAR” FOR BEST SLEEP EVER

CLEAN, SPACIOUS & BRIGHT
The entire B&B is very well taken care of and offers guests a clean, safe and comfortable place to rest while in Florence
Antica Posta B&B is a small, charming bed and breakfast in Florence in a strategic location right behind the SMN train station, which makes it easy to access the city center and is also easy to reach, both by car or foot or by tramway. In fact, it is right in front of the T2 Belfiore tram stop along the line that connects the airport to downtown Florence. If you arrive at the airport, you can very easily get to your accommodation and then continue to downtown Florence. If you arrive by car, there is private and public parking in the vicinity.
The B&B has 5 spacious and bright rooms on the first floor building, easy to reach with an elevator, with all rooms having double glass windows to ensure any street noise from below is blocked off. The rooms are furnished in a traditional Tuscan style, with wrought iron beds (a few with canopy), solid wood furniture and terracotta floors. Each of the rooms has its own private bathroom, as well as air-conditioning, a minbar, a water kettle to prepare a tea or hot coffee, TV with digital channels, security box, desk and all the beds have new mattresses. You get the best sleep you can possibly get by also choosing your own pillows on arrival: the “pillow bar” offers firm and softer pillows and you get 2 so that you can determine height. At Antiche Poste, Elena cares that her guests get the best rest ever, to be ready to meet every new day
A home away from home
A stay at Antica Posta is like visiting friends in Florence: the warm and welcome atmosphere of the small B&B is designed to make you feel at home. The bookcases are full of travel guides and maps you can use while in Florence, as well as paperback novels where you can exchange a book to read as you continue your journey.
The entire B&B is covered with free WiFi and air conditioning. Guests can enjoy breakfast every morning in the dining room or request breakfast in their room. The dining room and kitchen are then available to guests to use free during the day, either to enjoy a coffee at the Nespresso machine (free pods available) or to order in and enjoy a pizza or prepare a meal “at home”. Guests can make use of the self-check in (by 9pm) and use the B&B’s free luggage deposit service if you arrive before check-in times (1-3pm) or after you’ve checked out in the morning (by 10am) to go see a little more of Florence before catching your train or airplane. A terrace has a smoking area for guests that need it.
Breakfast every morning is a continental-style buffet with both sweet and savory options from 8am. If you need any special products, such as gluten-free or lactose-free, make sure to tell Elena when you book. A great option offered by Antica Poste is that you can also book your room without breakfast included, thus saving a little bit of money per person. It is perfect for those that are light eaters at breakfast and want to just grab a coffee or a pastry and that’s it. You have that option here. Since room rates vary by season and by number of persons in each, or if your family needs more than one room, we recommend you contact Antiche Poste before booking to ask for a price estimate, especially if you’re staying longer than 4 nights for any special discounts that might apply. You can also save if you book without the possibility of cancellation at the last minute. Kids under 6 stay for free, in either the cribs or beds in the room.
Everything is nearby
While the heart of Florence is not far away, the B&B also offers its guests free bikes to use to move around more easily and quickly. You can easily walk to all of the sights, including to the Duomo, the Uffizi and Accademia museums, Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti, while enjoying shopping and the many sights along the way.
If you’re traveling with your pet, it isn’t always easy to find pet-friendly accommodation. At Antiche Poste, your furry friend will actually feel most welcome, with Elena and staff offering or arranging services such as pet-sitting and ensuring pet food is on hand for your pet.
Friendly welcome and assistance at all times
Elena and her friendly staff area also on hand every morning to help provide suggestions or assistance with the day’s activities, including help in booking museums or restaurants. If you’re interested in guided tours or visits, however, contact them ahead of time so that if anything needs to be booked ahead can be ready for when you arrive. A printer and instant Polaroid camera (you buy the film) are available to guests during your stay.
If you’re in Florence for business, Antica Posta B&B is the perfect accommodation for your stay in Florence. The B&B is right behind the train station and to the side of the Fortezza da Basso, where major trade fairs and events take place.
