I choose it, as I knew that I would arrive in Firenze close to and possibly after midnight - and had to leave next morning from the train station (which is more or less across the street) at 6:40 in the...

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!
