I was in Florence, Tuscany, a while ago. I went with my parents and brothers - five of us in total. We needed a cheap, well-located place; there are plenty of accommodation options in Florence, but not all are accessible. But while searching the internet, we found this cool guesthouse, located near the Santa Maria Novella station - the city's main station - and allowing easy access to the main points of the city by bus, or on foot. The site manager is great, and everything is super comfortable. We stayed in a room for five people, for less than 20 euros a head. The site is simple, clean and welcoming. It has a well-equipped kitchen for guests to prepare their meals, and an open area to drink wine and chat. A great tip for those who want to enjoy Florence, rest and save. Be punctual - the owner works alone.
