Rated 4.8 out of 5
This was by far our favourite monastery to stay in while in Italy for 28 days. Mainly because of the Sisters - they were amazing, so warm and friendly every day. They did not speak English but we communicated through Google Translate and they were very patient and helpful while I spoke in Italian, which I only had been learning for a short time. Every day they made me use Italian and my vocabulary increased dramatically in the week we stayed here. Every morning, one of them would be in the office when we dropped off the keys and would always be interested in what we were doing for the day. And every evening they would greet us when we got back from a day of site seeing and want to know what we had seen and done. I felt like we weren't alone in Italy and had people looking out for us while we stayed with them - I cried when we left them, I'd become so attached to them. We were in Florence November 2018 when big storms hit and they were so helpful with removing noisy bird deterents from the balconies that kept us awake one night in the wind. Nothing was a problem for them and they were so eager to please. Very easy to walk to this monastery from the main train station. Also had the best shower I had in Italy - water pressure was good and shower head was full spray. Rooms cleaned daily and fresh towels changed twice while I was there for 7 days. No breakfast but were close to lots of cafes and take away so was not an issue. Wifi was quick and always available. I would base myself in Florence if I returned to Italy, just to stay with these Sisters again. This was the only place where I bought the Sisters some local chocolates to say thank you, that is how much we enjoyed our stay here.

I was very pleased with this accommodation. While the conversation with the Sisters was businesslike at the beginning when registering, over the four days I stayed there they were extremely friendly and hospitable, and expressed concern over my welfare, especially when I went on distant travel. Even though none of them spoke English, they were equipped with an efficient Translating App which made communication easy. The location of not even 5 minutes from SMN Firenze station was ideal for getting to most places easily, including restaurants and bakeries. I will definitely return there. I wish the Sisters the very best in their ministry.

We were always welcomed and looked after by the sisters. They were wonderful. The room was simple but clean and comfortable and regularly serviced.The place was centrally located and I always felt it was a safe and secure environment. I would highly recommend this place especially to sole women travellers .

My stay at the Institute was wonderful. Clean, quiet, well located. In my assessment I highlighted above all the human treatment the sisters had with me during the 4 days I stayed there. Always worried to know if I was comfortable or how I had spent the day or how I was in health. I have an unbeatable memory and I highly recommend it. And I will surely return.
- A CORUÑA, Spain (September 2018)
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this convent for many reasons... First, the sisters are warm, welcoming and lovely. They speak Italian but we communicated easily with google translator. Second, the facility is very secure, clean and tranquil. The basic furnishings allowed me to focus on the purpose of my visit to Florence. The room was a bit larger than I expected and opened to a green courtyard. Third and last, I walked all over Florence from this location and walked to the convent from the train station very easily.
