This was the best B&B on my whole trip. I stayed five nights in the Yellow Room, making it my home in the city. I couldn't believe how quiet it was at night - not a sound from anywhere - and how ideally located it was - most major sites were a matter of blocks away. With the deep off-season discount, I felt like I had won the lottery. The bed was comfortable (they could use some lighter blankets for warmer weather), the shower was downright spacious by european standards (my elbows didn't bang against the sides!) and everything had a fresh, newer quality, while not forgoing some nice character (just as charming as it looks on the website). All the travel practicalities were considered: lights/plugs where you'd want them, hangers/hooks, good towels, soaps, hair dryer, wifi. The mirror in the bath is a tad high, so a full-length one would be a welcome addition to the room, say, in the armoire. The breakfast was standard with good quality items. Riccardo was extremely good-natured and helpful with info about the city, making a reservation at the perfect place for dinner on my first night and sending me to wine bars and lunch spots worth knowing about. This is a true B&B and should be considered when making reservations, checking in, etc. I was told the owner (who was out-of town, which in no way lessened the level of hospitality) is an architect and that is reflected in the great attention to detail everywhere. I will always stay at Casa dei Tintori when I am in Florence.
