My husband and I spent 3 nights here mid July. It is a 15-20 minute walk from the train station. On arrival, we were warmly greeted by our hostess Albena, who handed us a map and gave detailed directions and explanations on top sights and restaurants in town, and when to go to them. This was so useful as otherwise I think we would have missed out on Florentine life.
The B&B is very well located. We had a fabulous view of the Duomo from our room, which was spacious, clean and cool. The bathroom was also clean and had a good shower (travellers' essentials!). We didn't need to use public transport at all (apart from our return journey to the train station after 3 days of exploring) and the Duomo, Accademia, Uffizi, Arno river etc are all within easy walking distance. There is a self-service laundry right outside and a grocery store down the road, which was handy.
As other reviews have mentioned, the hosts are fantastic. The breakfasts were hearty and tasty, and the cappuccinos were some of the best we tasted on our whole trip. Albena also had a fabulous habit of bumping into us on the street whenever we were squizzing at our map trying to figure out which road to take to her suggested restaurants! (which were all amazing)
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a central, yet quiet, comfortable, safe and friendly B&B.
