This is a great boutique hotel. Small, with a wonderful staff. Located outside main city, but a short walk from the bus stop. We had a great time here and the staff was very helpful. The printed some tickets we forgot, gave directions, and even helped out when our pre arranged transport to the train station was late. The gentleman who showed us our room remembered where we were from and remembered what my we liked to drink in the morning. We requested a king bed, and that is what we got. The room was big and the safe was big enough for our 14 inch laptop. The wifi was great for us and we were able to Skype home to our kids, which was important. A pleasant surprise was the fridge. We were able to keep our water bottle in there overnight, so we had cold water and we were also able to keep a bottle of wine. Room was always clean. A couple of tips, this is an older house so I guess the plumbing is old, as the shower turned very hot when someone turned the sink on or flushed the toilet. No big deal, just good to know. I also wish they had screens on the windows. We wanted to enjoy the outdoors but the mosquitos were bad. Didn't see any places with screens so probably not an option, but a girl can wish. Would definitely return if we go back to Florence and will recommend to anyone looking for a boutique style hotel.
