Located about a 10 minute bus ride outside of the main Florence centre, Paolo's B & B represents amazing value considering prices closer to the centre of Florence. Located in a residential area, this B & B is a flat in a block that has been done up as a b & b, with 3 rooms (one with private bathroom, the other 2 with shared bathroom) and a shared kitchen. We stayed in one of the rooms with the shared bathroom, room was decent size, clean and with a nice little balcony. Shared bathroom was modern and kept very clean, during our 4 night stay Paolo came every day to clean the property. Kitchen was good and small breakfast was provided in the price (croissant, tea, coffee etc). Also useful if you are on a budget and want to eat in cheaply rather than eating out one night. Paolo was very friendly and helpful in our interaction with him which made communication with him easy despite us knowing no Italian and his English being quite limited. Only drawback was that as it is a block of flats, the walls dont seem particularly thick so noise can travel through, though I'm a deep sleeper so didnt really bother me. However, the main selling point of this B & B is definitely the excellent price, for our room with the shared bathroom we paid just under 40 euros a night which worked out to just over £30 a night (inc. the small breakfast), unbeatable value. A bus ticket into the city costs only a euro, the bus stop is 2 mins from the B & B and a 10 minute ride in, bus no 22 or 57 (i think), regular service- we never waited longer than 5 mins.
All in all, definitely recommended!
