It was really close to train station, and pretty much to every must-see area in Florence. Rafealle (hotel manager) was so helpful and sweet. The rooms were really cute with lovely decoration. A great b&b overall!

The location is good. Only less than 5 min walk from train station. And it's quiet at night. It's also near to good restaurants. Supermarket is just downstairs. The staff has been awesome and helpful. The room is clean and big. We stayed with a 4 year old daughter.
