Over several visits to Florence, this has been a go-to inn for stays on a tight budget. Rooms spread over two floors of a historic palazzo—spot the original “wine hole” by the front door, once used by noble owners to sell direct to thirsty Florentines. The best rooms upstairs face a quiet, leafy rear courtyard. Furniture is a fun mix of mismatched flea-market finds and secondhand pieces; tiled floors and bold print wallpaper and fabrics keep up the charmingly outdated feel. Note that bathrooms are shared (although they have good water pressure), and there is no air conditioning or onsite breakfast. But the price, value, character, and welcome are hard to beat in this price bracket.
