The really great thing about this B&B is the host, Edo. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and a genuinely nice guy. He definitely goes out of his way to make you feel welcome in his home. We had a slight issue with our reservation (our fault) but Edo took care of it like a gentlemen and always with a smile. The B&B is located outside of walking distance to the center (you can walk it but you won't be left with much energy once you reach the center) so its a short bus ride. I actually preferred the location of the B&B to the center as it had some authentic character unlike the disneyland that is Florence. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended if visiting Florence.
