We stayed at the Sognando Bed& Breakfast from 18 to 22 september 2011 and I must say that this B&B was a most pleasant surprise where you get great value for your money. The B&B is situated on the 2nd floor of a building on the corner of piazza Ferrucci and via Gian Paolo Orsini, in a plain but safe and quiet suburb of Firenze.
The rooms are equipped with basic furniture but they are more than big enough and are very clean. All rooms have a comfortable bathroom, AC, a safe, TV and double glass (so there is no problem with the street noise). Ther is free WiFi in the whole B&B.
They charge 5 € for breakfast which is not expensive at all because, for Italian standards, it is rather rich and abundant (frehsly baked rolls, brioche, coffee, tea, fruit juice, cereals, biscuits, yoghurt, …)
The owner is extremely friendly, not to mention the girl serving breakfast : she is really doing her utmost to make your stay enjoyable and, what's more, she speaks fluently English.
The B&B is not really centrally located. Count at least 20 minutes to walk to the PonteVecchio and 40 minutes to Santa Maria Novella train station. But this should not be an inconvenience which takes you into town in less than 10 minutes is a taxi stand on adjacent Piazza Ferrucci and just around the corner you will find the terminal of Bus D, which takes you into town in less than 10 minutes.
If I ever go back to Firenze, I would cetrainly stay here again.
