The only downside was the bathroom smelled like the piping hadn't been used in a while.
Great attention, great breakfast, very comfortable bed! Everything was clean and the location was perfect!

location, friendly atmosphere, the attitude of the owner,

- Front door and room locks are not working very well - Breakfast choices could be improved (probably to include eggs and some fruits) - Hallway from main entrance to front door could use some lighting especially at night
- Spacious room - Comfortable bed - Frontdesk staff responded quickly when I reported a faulty toilet flush - Walking distance from railway station, main attractions area and restaurants

Family run with a lovely welcome, nothing seemed any problem. We left our bags both on arriving early and before we caught our train after checking out. Thank you and we certainly recommend.

Did not have any particular bad experience. Only was a bit cold. The room had only AC, would have been better if there was heating facility.
Located at a very easily accessible location and close by major attractions. Wifi was good. Breakfast was good as well.

Only thought is that the bathroom and shower are a bit small if you're a larger person.
Close to all we wanted to see. Very friendly staff. Met our every need (though the shower might be a bit tight for anyone slightly rotund!). Great price. We'd definately come back.

Very nice staff ! Nice and clean room, good breakfast.

It was a tiny bit noisy to be on the street, but a white-noise app on our phone cancelled out the street-sounds.
We only stayed one night but it was lovely. Inexpensive, close to the train station, about 10 minutes from il Duomo and the city center, good food nearby, the woman (whose name eludes me) who seemed to run the place was wonderful and friendly, breakfast was delicious. Overall we really really enjoyed this place.

Heat didn't work and fridge was broken, but was replaced when we said something. Felt like a youth hostel, but that was fine.
Wifi was strong. Breakfast good. Host was helpful and gave us good suggestions. Location fairly central. Great value.

close to main train terminal so you can walk. close to main historical landmarks, food & interest local markets. And restaurants, bars small eateries nearby. Room & surrounds very clean. Good breakfast included with cereals, fruits, breads & fresh expresso made all included. Helpful with information. As with most smaller guesthouses or hotel stairs to one level.

We booked one double bed on line but when checked in, we found one double bed and one small bed in the room.We used the extra bed since it was in the room. However, hotel charged us for the usage of extra bed.We felt quite unfair as we did not ask for the extra bed and no one informed us in advance for the nonsense.
10 minutes walk from/ to train station. Walking distance to Duomo and uffizi gallery.
