There is a real neighborhood feel to the streets around this dimora (traditional Florentine home) guesthouse—which means evenings are lively and Sundays are silent (although it’s under a 10-min. walk from the buzz of San Lorenzo). Standard-sized rooms are snug; upgrade to an Executive if you need more space, but there is no difference in the standard of the decor, a mix of Florentine and earthy, boho styling, with parquet floor, silk drapes, and Persian rugs. Help yourself to coffee, soft drinks, or a glass of wine from the honesty bar and head up to a knockout roof terrace for views over the terra-cotta rooftops to the center and hills beyond. It is pure magic at dusk. No credit cards.
