We stayed 3 nights in august. The pension's owner was very kind and explained us all the details necessary to access important places in Florence.
The rooms are very clean, and very important are equiped with air conditioning(the temeperature in agust was very high). The breakfast is almost the same each morning and too sweet for my taste. But for us it was important the location (not far from hystorical center and the railway station) and not what we eat at breakfast.

Room Tip: I recommend to avoid the rooms with view to inner courtyard because he people in neighbouring flats...

The inn was very clean and newly remodeled. The breakfast was a variety of sweet pastries, yogurt, juices, and of course, the espresso/cappucino was yummy. The proprietor was very nice and helpful in guiding us to bus lines and directions to the various sights.

Room Tip: The room was perfect with it's very own upgraded bathroom.

Very smart B&B. Hosts were very helpful with directions, parking and advising on a tour of Florence. Rooms were good and we appreciated the shared balcony. Parking was convenient. The local trattoria just round the corner was very handy for a late night meal on arrival, with good food for a good price.

Great b&b! Owners were extremely helpful and location is perfect for sightseeing! Would recommend to all! The breakfast was fresh and delish. There were emails sent out prior with better directions. Air conditioning was fantastic. Beds were comfy and facilities very clean. There was a small balcony which was lovely at night. Great place!

i would mark this better then excellent for cleanliness, it was wonderful. the hosts were fantastic and very helpful. Great location just outside of city center, parking if you have a car too. There was an excellent resaurant about 50 feet from the front door, reasonable in price and great food. The hosts maps of the city, flyers for places to eat and so on.

Room Tip: buses to city center, i believe it is a 20 minute walk from b&b

Lara & Lorenzo are so friendly and incredibly helpful. They've done a great job on the renovations. It has everything you need and even better, they were very affordable! There's a bus stop right in front of the building which takes you downtown or it's only about a 20 minute walk. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Florence.
