We had booked this B&B based on ratings on Tripadvisor. And given we were staying at brand name hotels in the other cities in this trip, we were a little apprehensive about this. But the exemplary service began 2 weeks before we arrived - they reached out to me to confirm the stay and asked me to inform them when I would be arriving and how. They also told me what would the best ways to get to the hotel. We arrived late @ 10:30PM at night and while we had a little difficulty in locating the doorbell, the rest was pretty smooth. Elizabetta was waiting for us - she gave us a quick tour of the place and gave us our set of keys. The room was spacious enough for European standards and most importantly clean and neat. The next morning we had a nice breakfast and even borrowed the Florence guidebook for our day in the city. She was also kind enough to recommend a restaurant frequented by locals (Il Pizzaiuolo - don't miss it, she helped us make reservations which was a must). Very nice place and more importantly, very nice people. The only thing i would say is that, it does say it has wheelchair access but it doesnt (it's up just one floor but that might be an impediment for some people). Also if anyone stays here, the restaurant immediately below the B&B is avoidable, but the tiny tratorria across the street (see photo) is a very nice place.
