We stayed 5 nights in the red room. Very comfortable bed, effective air con, lovely big bathroom, all very clean. Very pleased with the room.
Edo was an excellent host, and could not have been more helpful throughout our stay. he also provided a map with the bus numbers to go to Saint Marco which is the limit for traffic (thankfully) Choice of bus every 20 mins at most, bus stop 50 meters away, or outside the house coming back. tickets 1.20 euros anywhere, valid for 90 mins. We had Firenze card+ which includes the buses, and you do get priority entrance for all the museums which was great for us with the 40 degree heat when we were there.
We took No 7 bus (stop just across the road) up the hill to Fiesole (15 min ride and well worth it for the great views over the city and the roman remains with excellent museum)
We used local café for breakfast at local prices, and being in this neighbourhood, using the buses etc and the shops, felt more 'in tune' with the locals who were all forgiving of our poor Italian.
Can recommend PIzzaman for a good meal, buy bus tickets from the sop opposite the house, and water and wine from the little shop almost next door.
Can recommend Il Giglio d'oro (highly)More
