We stayed here 3 nights in mid-May 2014. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. There was no breakfast. The room was nice size, with modern bathroom but a small shower. Other than the bathroom, everything was a bit dated/neglected but it was clean (high surfaces & nooks/crannies a little too dusty). 3 long flights of stairs (no elevator) to the rooms. Wifi was only reliable in the hallway. Didn't need air-conditioning, but it was available for a fee. Close the windows (especially at night) unless you like mosquitos. Not the best Honeymoon spot, but a clean affordable spot within an easy 15ish minute walk to all the Florence highlights. (20 min walk to the train station…hint-use the underground walkways to avoid the big intersection in front of the train station.) The neighborhood is quiet with plenty of food options between the room & tourist areas. We might find a bit more romantic spot next time, but it is a good budget option.

Excellent location, close to a number of good restaurants, easy walking to sights. Rooms are up several flights of stairs. When we arrived we were told that their "credit card machine was not working so we would have to pay cash". It would be better if they stated at the web site that they don't take credit cards!

We had a very pleasant stay at this Guesthouse. The owners (husband and wife) were very friendly and helpful. They helped us with parking in Florence (we were able to park on the street next to the guesthouse for all but one night and they give excellent directions to parking garage for other night). The room was clean and comfortable. it is located a bit away from the main congested area which is overwhelmed with tourists. Here there's actually some Italians in the shops and restaurants (as customers). The owners made some excellent restaurant suggestions. We would definitely stay here again. An excellent value. Book ahead. Sidenote: our GPS was great in getting us around Florence and Tuscany in general

The service was nice. The room quite small, not as small as the shower though. Overall we had a great stay. The B&B is located 5 minutes from all the attractions. Thanks so much.
