My wife and I stayed here for three nights in May. We chose La Locandiera based on the recommendation of friends, and because it was near Santa Maria Novella station. The B&B was easy enough to find (by Italian B&B standards), and we approached with some apprehension, as the security was tight (not a bad thing), and the stairs were somewhat dark and steep (there was a lift, however), but upon entering we found our room quite comfortable and clean. The location is within walking distance of many of the great attractions, including the Duomo, Academia, Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. What sets this B&B apart is Sylvia, a great hostess, fluent in English, full of information, who delivers breakfast on time and with a smile! Her recommendations of things to do, and especially places to eat were spot on and most appreciated. We met many good hosts and hostesses in nearly three weeks in Italy, but Sylvia and La Locandiera certainly were memorable.
