I stayed at 1900 Artevita for 5 nights in the single room, which was exactly as it appears on the B&B's website. Spacious and spotless with a cute furnished balcony overlooking the street, however, the electronic metal window shutter was very effective at blocking out traffic noise and light enabling me to sleep like a log every night. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Wardrobe had plenty of hangers. WiFi signal was excellent. The external private bathroom was big with a roomy shower with hot water available no matter what time of the day I showered. Breakfast was plentiful, with tea and coffee-making facilities available all day. A communal fridge for guests' use was also available. I loved the non-touristy location on the edge of Oltrarno. Several bus stops within 2 minutes, including to the city and Piazzale Michaelangelo. Approximately 20 minutes walk to Ponte Vecchio; 5-10 minutes to lively San Ferdiano and Santo Spirito where there are lots of great restaurants, wine bars and coffee shops. Lovely area in which to aimlessly ramble and discover. Last, but certainly not least, your hosts, brothers Leonardo and Stefano. Endlessly patient, friendly, courteous, helpful and knowledgeable, they are ambassadors for their city and tourism in general. Excellent "old fashioned" customer service which, unfortunately, is sometimes absent from the tourism industry these days. Thank you both for the enjoyable chats and the kindness and generosity of spirit extended to a stranger. I would stay here again and wholeheartedly recommend it to otherers. Deirdre
