Can be noisy with motor bikes going to and fro at 7am but don't let that put you off as it is a different experience from across the river. Half way between Santo Spirito and San Freddianno and Del Carmine! Super little eating places and a super market nearby.

Four large double bedrooms and huge common area and fully equipped kitchen. Amazing location with easy access to all the wonderful ssites, restaurants, shops and supermarket. Massimo was a lovely host and helped us with taxis. Would definitely use again and highly recommend.
