We could not be happier with our stay at Panella's - great location, right in the middle of the city, walkable to all the sites. The house itself and the rooms (we stayed in #43) have tons of charm and character, with old interior details beautifully preserved. Panella gave us a tour of the old artifacts and items lovingly displayed in the building (some of them have been in their family for centuries!). At the same time, the rooms have all the modern amenities - our room was spacious, with a modern bathroom and A/C.
Panella was a welcoming and gracious host - we arrived to the residence late at night after an all day drive and she had called a nearby trattoria (which was about to close!) to arrange a wonderful dinner waiting for us. On our request, she had reserved tickets to Florence museums (the Uffici and Academia) and was very helpful with directions and dinner recommendations during the rest of our stay. Panella and her husband serve a wonderful breakfast in the morning, which includes home made pastries and pies - amazing! They made us feel welcome and very comfortable.
This is a place to stay if you are looking for something more than just a place to sleep at night and can appreciate unquiness and personality of the place and the graciousness of its hosts.
