An introduction to Le Tre Stanze

How would you describe Le Tre Stanze in a nutshell?

Coming to Le Tre Stanze is like coming home. It’s a private palazzo turned into a guesthouse that I always wished I would find when going on vacation.

The guesthouse is on the top floor of a building located right next to the Duomo in Florence, Italy. The palazzo has a long history going back to the 16th century and has been maintained almost in its original state as we tried to leave it as close to the way it was in our restoration.

What was your inspiration to open Le Tre Stanze?

It was my sister’s desire to open Le Tre Stanze as a bed & breakfast. She wanted to make this beautiful place available to everyone.

Our grandfather had bought the place in the 1950s and over the years every generation added a bit of restoration depending on how much money they had at the time. The nice part about this is that some original items remained, giving it a vintage feel.

What is so special about staying at Le Tre Stanze?

There is much to say about older houses that you can’t experience in newer buildings. This palazzo has a lot of history and each piece in the house has a story that makes it feel even more alive. It is also very important to me that we do not offer a functional hotel-like atmosphere but more of a private, at-home feel.

Most people look at the pictures and choose this place from the feeling they get. Some people come unprepared and are surprised that it’s not a hotel, but they end up loving it. They appreciate the difference and the warm feeling it offers.

What about restaurants and places to go out at night?

It really depends on what people are looking for. In Italy there is good food for everyone, even most low budget restaurants offer great options here.

I enjoy the simple Italian restaurants that offer local seafood and pastas. There are more expensive restaurants, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that their food is better.

How long would you recommend to stay to get a good sense of Florence?

A five-night stay is fantastic, but three nights would be plenty of time to see almost everything. The first day you can explore the city, the second day you can visit the museums and galleries, and the third day will give you time to stop by some of the nearby towns.

You can cover a lot of interesting stuff within just an hour’s drive. Some guests spend two days in Venice, two days in Florence and two days in Rome.

What’s been the biggest reward to you personally about running Le Tre Stanze?

The biggest reward for me has been to realize how many people appreciate a place like this. Oftentimes the house is full and I get to meet many amazing people.

It is also quite wonderful how our guests show me over and over again just how beautiful Florence truly is. It’s something I appreciate, because sometimes living in a place you can lose that feeling.

Le Tre Stanze rooms & rates

The building has no elevator, so you have to walk up stairs to get to the different guest rooms. My favorite room is definitely the Mansarda, which has a nice terrace with a view of Florence Cathedral.

The rooms are very big, about 45 square meters, all with en-suite bathrooms. We have kept as much of their original state as possible but added modern amenities from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Each room is different. The Junior Suite has separate rooms, providing more space.

It’s like a calm island in the business of the city. There’s a lot of tourism on the streets of Florence but once you walk through the doorway of Le Tre Stanze, suddenly all that hustle and bustle is gone. It gives you a sense of a private paradise in the middle of Florence. As you can move freely around the building, many of our guests feel like it’s their private house.

It depends on the length of your stay. Uffizi and Accademia are the classic's The sculptures, especially David, are must-sees, as well as all the famous paintings in the Uffizi. Make online reservations in order to avoid long lines.

If you can stay longer, you should go to Museo San Marco, Bargello and Museo la Specola, Palazzo Pitti and Strozzi of corse to.There are many churches to visit or also a drive to Fiesole up in the hills is a wonderful idea. So many things to see in Florence and I will be happy to help you once you are in town.

We enjoyed both of our stays - our stay with Gabriela at Il Fienile and our stay with Patrick at Le Tre Stanze. I think we will probably return to both at some point in the future. I would vote Le Tre Stanze 4.5 stars out of 5 - the only downfall being the closed garden (out of season) and the staircase. Minor flaws to an otherwise impeccable stay.... in fact to be honest with you docking half a star for just those is pretty harsh - can I give 4.75? :) Thanks for the help in booking and following up, we love your site and hope we will be able to visit more places on your list.

Fabulous stay in Florence. The place is amazing, full of history and very personnal. The kids where in the ground floor studio which is a vaulted room, very fresh and opening onto a small sitting area in the garden, as typical teenagers, they where very happy to be totally independent from us... And my daughter whom I've brought up to be as sensitive to it as I am, very much approved.

The location of Le Tre Stanze

Le Tre Stanze is right in the centre of Florence next to the Cathedral. Most everything is within a 10-minute walk so that you never need to take a bus.

The history of Florence is amazing, so just being aware of where you are can provide a sense of awe. If you go into the museums and see the different paintings and sculptures, as well as the old buildings in Florence, you get a sense how everything was made for man. Not much has changed here, which is a feeling I appreciate about the place. It may get crowded, but it’s always very beautiful in Florence.

When is the best time to visit Tuscany?

My favorite time of the year is March when summer is just starting and the weather is very beautiful. September and October also offer great weather but during that time there might be quite a lot of tourists.

I would avoid July and August; it’s very hot and crowded during those two months. Generally from March to end of October Florence tends to be quite full.

Guests who want to travel and not have any problems with traffic and crowds of tourists, should come in November, December, January and February. Those months are ideal for a quiet experience of Florence.
