We enjoyed Alessio's Locanda as bookends to our trip to Italy, which began and ended in Florence. He gave us a warm welcome, helped with recommendations, maps, taxis, etc., and made us feel very much at home--we felt grateful to have him as our host. The rooms (we stayed in two) were clean, pretty, and comfortable, with a nice bathroom, small refrigerator, and decent AC (in very hot July). Though the neighborhood stayed active late into the night, the double-layered windows kept out the conversation from the street below. It's located on a pedestrian-only street, with a piazza just across, a sidewalk cafe a few doors down (with free breakfast for guests), and nearby amenities that include a large grocery, pharmacy, and ATM. It's a 5- to 10-min walk to the Duomo and museums(west), to the Arno River (south), or to a newer part of town (east), and we felt safe at all times of the day. By cab, 5-10 minutes from the the major train station (also reachable by a bus that stops nearby), or 10-15 minutes from the airport. We hope to stay here again!
