Great little place with a wonderful host
Posted Oct 31, 2012
I recently stayed here for 5 days while visiting Florence for the first time and had a wonderful time. It all starts with the host Betta, who is gracious and extremely helpful on our first visit, giving us many great suggestions on what to do. Our room is clean and of a good size, and is very quiet at night. The residence is only a 10 minute walk to the train station, and 20 minutes to the town center. There is also #12 bus right outside, which will take you close to most of the important sites in Florence.
Back to Betta, when we wanted to add one more night at the last minute, Betta was very accommodating and moved us to a nicer available room. When we checked out and left for the train station, my wife left her ring in the room. We realized it at the station, but it was too late. Just as I was about to board the train and send an email to Betta, we heard her voice. She chased us all the way to the train station to deliver the ring after she found it while cleaning! Florence's SMB station is huge, and yet that didn't daunt Betta from looking for us. This is just amazing service, and a wonderful end to our stay in Florence.
