The b&b was very easy to find, and I was so excited to see it was right next to Dante's house and church! How cool. It's about a 2 minute walk from the Duomo as well. Very well located, walkable to everything.
The host was so helpful, telling us everything we needed to know, might want to know, and should know about the house, Florence, and anything else. He is very knowledgeable about his city. His restaurant recommendations were spot on and I was very grateful to visit real, local, non-touristy restaurants! He gave us pamphlets on all kinds of activities offered nearby too. Upon entering the room, he checked everything to make sure it worked: tv, closet doors, bathroom light, refrigerator, etc. He really cares about his guests and wants them to be comfortable, and anything you need you can ask, it's no problem for him. The bed was really comfortable and made every day. The shower was a little tight, but that's common in Italy (and Europe). There was good water pressure in the shower and the motion sensor light in the bathroom was helpful in the dark. Breakfast is in a cute little bakery just a block away and it's delicious! Perfect before exploring beautiful Florence.
Be careful if you're arriving late because the owner isn't there 24 hours and there may be a charge after 7:30, so plan accordingly. But before 7:30, just ring the doorbell and he'll buzz you right up. The elevator is a bit small if you have a lot of luggage but you can fit...better than walking up to the 3rd floor (4th by American standards).
The b&b was wonderful, in an excellent location, and with a super friendly and helpful owner. I really can't praise it enough and highly recommend anyone visiting Florence to stay here! You will walk in Dante's footsteps!
