I stayed here for 2 weeks (to visit a cousin studying abroad) and loved it. Nice location...walk a few steps to the right once you exit the B&B and you can see the Duomo.
Elisa was great. She was always there when she said she would be (i.e. 8am to 1pm except on her day off) and was willing to help with whatever I needed, even making a museum reservation at the "Uffizi" for me in addition to assisting with the best modes of transportation. She was always friendly and I looked forward to running into her at the front desk before having breakfast, which is also included. The homemade cake at breakfast is a nice touch as well. A nice amenity for me was the water dispenser (with options for cold and frizzante) because I did not have to worry about buying a bottle of water before heading out for the day. The place has some nice character with a balcony overlooking a courtyard off the lobby and some frescoes on the walls. The wi-fi was important to me and worked well while I was there (there are 2 computers if you do not bring a device to access the internet). There is also a safe in the room if needed. The walk to the train station took me about 15mins, and that station (Santa Maria Novella) is a nice hub if you want to travel by train to other parts of Italy. This review would go on for days if I were to talk about how amazing Florence is, so I will just say it should be on everyone's bucket list of places to see in the world.
If (more like "when") I come back to Florence, I would stay here again.
Great city, great people, great place.
