We chose this B & B for its location, being close to the train station, as well as walking distance to the Ponte Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens and the Galleria dell' Accademia. Carrying luggage through the streets is no fun. The hotel was clean, safe and comfortable. The owner was not there when we got there, but a staff member filled in. There was a language barrier but she was very patient and we managed just fine. We later met the owner and he was very friendly, helpful, kind and just charming. Breakfast was nothing more than packaged snacks but they had juice and water and we wanted to save our appetites for the restaurants so we were just fine with it. We tired quickly in the heat and decided to stay in for one night with a bottle of wine. I went to the owner asking for advice on buying wine and after pointing us to the local grocer, he then handed me a cork screw and two wine glasses from his own kitchen. Just a nice little place to stay.
