Very clean and comfortable, cheerful helpful service. Very good breakfast (has vastly improved since visit May'10 and earlier reviewers): pastries, meat/cheese sandwiches, cereal, yogurt, often cheese, variety of cafe's prepared to order. Short walk to train every 20 min to Florence (2.5 euros one way) SMN station. Great value if you want to conveniently stay out of city center. Large grocery (COOP) with deli nearby. Excellent pastries and gelato in town. Ceramics museum. Ample sized room, comfortable bedding. Be prepared to speak Italian or have phrase book handy! Highly recommend.
