Our room did not overlook the Piazza Signoria, but we were happy it didn't because we were able to keep our window open and not be bothered by the noise. As a result, the view was non-existent. Access to the rooms required a walk up multiple flights of stairs. There is no one to help if you cannot make the climb with luggage. Upon arrival, we were frustrated by the absence of identification of the location. Proprietors from a restaurant next door called the B&B for assistance because the hotel is not staffed after 1:00 PM. We attempted to communicate with someone on an intercom but our Italian skills didn't measure up. The street numbers were very confusing. Residences are in black or blue and businesses are in red. When you see the number 3 on different buildings, side-by-side, it can be extremely confusing. Our room was very clean and the bathroom was oversized by European standards. Its entrance faced the common area of the B&B, but we did not notice excessive noise from conversation. We were given access to the Internet, and the front desk personnel obtained reservations for us at restaurants and local points of interest; however, they were only available until 1:00 PM. They also offered a recommended list of restaurants which we found to be spot on. When we wandered from their recommendation, we were disappointed. As a courtesy, we were able to leave our luggage after check-out while we completed our sight seeing. They offered a public restroom which allowed us to refresh before traveling elsewhere. I would definitely return.
