The hotel is about 500 meters from the train station in Florence and 200 m from the tourist information. The house from the 1400s is "gently renovated". Next door to an outstanding beautifully decorated pharmacy /perfumery from the 1200s (opened for public sale in 1612). We thank Nadja at the reception for her great tips: Buy picnic food in the market hall, then take bus No. 12 (€ 1:20, instead of the Hop on-hop off bus for € 25) and go around the city to the famous viewpoint Piazzale Michelangelo. In the town center there are mostly pedestrian zones, so buses can not come close to the sights. Nadja also recommended a typical Italian restaurant without the feeling "tourist trap" with sloppy made food and high prices (Trattoria Za-Za). Instead, visit Ostaria / Ristorante Centopoveri on Via Porcellana 41. We were completely satisfied :-)
