We booked into the Ridolfi Guest House after reading rave reviews on TripAdvisor, but it wasn't quite what we expected.
Emilio was very congenial, and he met us at the door on our arrival. He gave us a map and pointed out points of interests and good restaurants.
We were a bit surprised to learn that our "private" bathroom was actually located across the hall in the front lobby of the house. We didn't even have a mirror in our room so we found ourselves having to use the mirror in the lobby. With the push button showers and lack of privacy it felt more like a low budget hostel than a B & B that we paid good money for.
Breakfast was standard fair-bread, jams, coffee. The first morning Emilio wasn't there, and the woman on duty didn't offer any breakfast, so we left without eating. The second morning we got coffee with not milk (guess it needs to be a special request). The kitchen is very handy, and Emilio did tell us to make ourselves at home. The fridge in the room is handy too.
The location is good, the place was clean, the elevator was handy, but I think for this price you can find rooms with private baths attached to the room.

- A welcome from who has transformed this roomy and comfortable apartment into a bed & breakfast. I have been a traveller for many years and, although everyone of us is different, some fundamental aspects are universal: the price/quality relation, the availability and the discretion of the management and staff, the attention to cleanliness.
