Traditional Santo Spiritu neighbourhood south of the river, near Pitti Palace, in a quieter, residential area. Host Antonio most accommodating. Reasonably priced (for Florence), close to cafes, restaurants, grocery stores. 25-30 steps up inner staircase and tight squeeze into apartment, but a comfortable space with in-room internet & frig. Not B&B... would have appreciated a kettle for tea. Good location for walkers, 5 - 10 min to Ponte Vecchio, & just a few min more to historic centre: Duomo, Palazzo,Uffizi etc. Easy to navigate the area. No need for taxi when arriving/leaving... close to bus route for SMN train station. I'd definitely stay again either solo or with companion.
