Stefano and Leonardo will take care of you in this great, quaint B&B close to the action in Florence. It's on the south side of the river, about 10 minute walk west of the gate. That means it's about 15-20 minutes to the Vecchio and about 15 to the SM Novella station. There are many bakeries, gelato stands and aperitif spots along the way. While this was great for us, it may be long for others, but after 3 days of going back and forth, my wife and i were fine and enjoyed returning to this cozy place each night!
The rooms were clean, well prepared, and quiet. The hosts were incredibly supportive - calling for advance tickets, restaurant recommendations, bus schedules, etc. It's important to know they both leave in the afternoons - it's not a 24-service hotel. When you come back at 7pm, your come back into the B*B with your key, into your room that's been made up, and a quiet atmosphere. THere are perhaps 4-6 rooms total but you'll only see guests in the morning for breakfast. You'll see them again in the morning and they're a quick phone call away but if you're high maintenance or need someone there 24/7, perhaps go elsewhere.
We'd stay here again and again if we could. Great people, great place, great beds, great service.
