This B&B is very close to downtown Firenze. We drove, but took a bus to get to the city b/c we heard parking was expensive. It took us about 15 mins to get to the city by bus. (Getting to the bus stop was a little tricky though. There wasn't really a pedestrian road along the road, so we had to walk alongside the cars, but it didn't really bother us so much)
Although it's so close, this B&B itself feels like out in the country with some ruins around and pretty big farm of olive trees in the backyard. We stayed in a room with a bedroom loft (we were just 2 of us, but we accidentally got this room but not with higher rate). The room was clean and cozy.
Small roads to get here were quite narrow and we had to maneuver very well and drive very slowly to not crash with the cars from the opposite side. But I think this is the same in many small towns in Italy.
The rate was really good too - hard to find B&Bs in Firenze under 100 euros, but this B&B doesn't have to pay that much and yet so close to the city.
