We stayed in the Actor's Suite for three nights. Guiseppe was very nice and hospitable. Although, I wish there was an easier way to contact him rather than by phone. We don't have a global cell phone plan.
The room was charming and very spacious. The bathroom was really clean and had lots of storage space. The water pressure was good, but I ran out of hot water every morning after about 5 minutes.
We could hear a lot of noise around us from neighbors. We could practically hear the owners' conversation through the ceiling. We could also hear their baby crying.
The location was away from the touristy area, which is both good and bad. You definitely get a lot more for your money. But it was little creepy walking around the area at night. I never felt like I was in danger -- Florence isn't that kind of city -- but it was a little uncomfortable walking down graffitied streets in the dark past small groups of young men.
If I go back to Florence, I'll probably spend a little more money to get a hotel near the city center. Even if it's louder, I'd rather be closer to shops and restaurants and be able to wonder around at night.
