We were recommended this b&b by the owner of the b&b in Rome we stayed in for 5 days prior. We booked online and arrived on a sweltering day mid August to be greeted by Laura. We had to park our rental car a few blocks away as you cannot park in front, but it was not far from the b&b. The room was not ready as the previous guest checked out late but we were offered another room to use to shower and change as it was 40c that day. Once we got our room, the air conditioning was fine and although simple, the b&b is clean. Most bathrooms in Italy are small, so we knew what to expect. Location is great, were given free wifi and info about the city and service was friendly- perhaps being able to speak Italian helps. Breakfast is not American as Italians typically eat big meals for lunch and dinner so bacon and eggs are hard to come by but worth missing for a Fiorentine steak dinner!!!
For the price and location, we were pleased.
