A go-to inn for stays on a tight budget. Rooms are 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flea-market finds and secondhand pieces; tiled floors and bold print wallpaper and fabrics keep up the charmingly outdated feel. Breakfast here is not the greatest. But the price, value, character, and welcome are hard to beat in this price bracket.
