We stayed for five nights in one of the new rooms at this B&B. It is amazing how it is so centrally located and so quiet at the same time! You can walk to all the museums and sites from here, which made it possible for us to hang out in the piazzas till late at night enjoying the local musicians who play there.
The new rooms are very well maintained, and come well-equipped. The room was very large, and very clean. The Wifi works well, and what you can't find online about Florence, the B&B owners are always ready to help with. They also helped us make reservations at a couple of museums and gave us ideas of road trips. The bus from the train station stops right outside the B&B, but you could also walk there in 15 minutes or so through the historic center.
With such great location, wonderful hosts, and good rooms, we are certainly going to make it our base again for our next trip.
