This is a great spot to stay in Florence. It is about 15 minutes by foot from the Porta Romana. The building is a lovely terraced home with a great back courtyard with a large fruit tree and views of the other homes nearby. It is a bit of a hike up the hill back, but the buses and taxis are all accessible and stop at the end of the road.
The hostess Flamina was extremely helpful and the rooms were kept in spotless condition. This is a traditional terraced home so if you are not keep on going up a flight of stairs, head for a room on the first floor. We opted for the room on the second floor and what a view! Standing on the balcony first thing in the a.m. and watching the clouds clear to see the Duomo was unbelievable. If you are looking for a late nightcap or lunch nearby, go over the top of the Senise road and on the decline you'll find a super little café that serves wine, paninis and colourful desserts. It proved to be a great option if trekking back into the city did not seem appealing. If you enjoy bed and breakfasts, this one is absolutely super.
FYI - the mosquito thing - well they are everywhere in Florence but this is the first place I've stayed where the hosts pre-equip your room with plug ins and we had no problems on that front.
