Very Good8.0
The hotel was good but faced issue going to and fro from city center/railway station as there is bus number 4 which runs and it was always late.

It was disappointing, not like the photos on the web site. The outdoor lacked enough lounge chairs and the only two were dirty. If the landscaping on the property had been done properly it would have been a very attractive garden. Our room was dark and noisy because was facing the street on the ground level, the small shower had no place to put the soap and the soap was really tiny. The breakfast was below average. We needed five different keys to move around the property, to open two gates and three doors, not fun to carry around sightseeing and shopping. Overall inconvenient and not restful as it looked on the photos.

Tuscany escape close to Florence opportunities
We chose this getaway B&B so that we could enjoy the busy tourism in Florence during the day/night but the peaceful beauty of the area when we were not out and about. This location is about 15 minutes by bus from Florence but the bus is only a dollar (or 1.2 Euro per trip). The bus runs every 10 minutes and is only a 2 minute walk to the bus stop. The room was great with air conditioning which was important since it was 100 degrees there all week. We chose the lower priced room in the additional building which did not get the wifi, but we just walked next door to the lobby or garden or breakfast area to get it, which was easy to do. At breakfast we were greeted by a warm croissant and fresh espresso along with tables of breads, eggs, jams, meats, cheeses and sweet cakes. The family lives on property so we also met Meggie their friendly dog. The back yard is filled with olive, lemon, fig, and pomegranate trees as well as bushes of sage and bay leaves. There is a whirlpool bath out there too in an ancient fountain. They serve dinner in the garden 4 nights a week, but we did not try it. We walked to local establishments 5 minutes away and were very impressed. They were very helpful with helping out getting reservations for restaurants and museums. I would definitely go back.

Outside of Central Florence
This hotel is a bit far from the city center where we did all our activities. Not a lot around in the way of restaurants. There was a bus stop close to the hotel and that is how we got to the city center. It took about thirty minutes to get into the heart of Florence. The breakfast was great, served buffet style. The staff member who checked us in was a bit rude about the city tax. Frustrating way to end the stay. The hotel room was very large and the grounds were nice. However, the clean hotel room and good breakfast were not worth the amount of money we paid to stay here.

Florence frustration
The hotel was difficult to find for us with the gps. Don't pay attention to the numbers on the street, keeping going past where the gps tells you to stop and at the end of the wall on the right, look over your shoulder! To find # 12. Ugh. This added to our frustration after a long day of driving. To catch the bus, you need to walk down the hill about 10 minutes, which is not a big deal for me, but for my father with mobility issues, it was very difficult. Honestly, the whole stay was a struggle, it was frustrating to locate, the stairs were steep, the hotel was farther away from transportation then I expected, and it meant we had to drive into Florence, which was an enormous mistake. The hotel was ok, the owner was helpful, but for my situation, I was sorry I made this selection.
