Just spent nearly two weeks at the Agli. On the plus side, the location is truly fabulous - close to everything, particularly the Duomo and Uffizi Gallery - easy to find too. While we definitely needed earplugs at night, it was quieter than I expected. It was clean and tidy and the bathroom was roomy and very modern. On the negative side, it totally lacked character to me and the room looked nothing like their publicity photo. When we arrived, we had to lug heavy luggage up 4 flights of stairs as there's no lift. There was a discrepancy with the amount of the deposit I'd paid; thank goodness I'd kept a photocopy of my payment. There is no-one stationed at the BnB, so the only person you're likely to see is the woman who comes in to make the breakfast (which is totally wheat based) and make the beds - as nice as she was, she speaks virtually no English, so no good for asking directions or assistance (such as when we tried to book a taxi). I don't think I'd go back to the Agli again, despite the great location, but would go for something with a bit more character.
