When we kept striking out on affordable hotels in Florence (all booked), we came across (on the web) a B&B just south of the river, Casa Pucci. A one-woman show, it is simple and homey, very comfortable and spacious. We felt like we were staying in our own Florence apartment -- our accommodations for 3 included not only our bedroom, but a huge bathroom and a separate sitting room. There was no A/C, but a good ceiling fan helped. And a ceiling mural and antiques helped give the bedroom Florentine charm. With a little help, the owner could make this place spectacular, but it appears she has a hard time keeping up with all the details. Still, she couldn't have been more gracious and helpful, despite her limited English. And for the price, it wasn't a bad choice at all.
