Martina is very responsive and helpful. We arrived about an hour earlier than informed and Martina's father-in-law, who runs the store next door, saw us outside. He let us in to wait and called her so she came quickly to attend to us. The front desk at the Locanda is not manned all the time, but they are quickly available if you need them.
The whole place especially our room smells so nice that we didn't feel like leaving. It is well kept and tastefully decorated, a lot of love and thought has been put into the place. The room was big, toilet was a good size. There were many towels and proper toiletries provided - somewhat hotel-style. The TV had cable provided as well.
We had a choice of 3 cafes for breakfast. Mignon was the best and a lovely place to visit, as recommended by Martina.
The Locanda is quite near the train station if you head down the right road. It is in the Mercato Centrale / San Lorenzo market district and may feel a bit dodgy at night, but is actually perfectly safe. The Accademia is 10min walk away, and the Duomo just a little more down from there.
In all, Martina is a generous and welcoming host and the Locanda is a great place to come home to.
