My place is a place for those travellers who wants to find fun and meet others guests from all over the world but at the same time need a quite clean and safe place to sleep. I don't give curfew during the night that means you can enter and leave whenever you prefer unless you are absolutely quite during those hours.
Not smoking room. Strictly forbidden to introduce other persons .
This room was right in the middle of Florence so you're going to be paying a bit more for the location. Also I arrived very much later than I expected but was still greeted at shown my room at much inconvenience to those that were waiting, of which I am very greatful. Also, my trip was during an exceptionally hot time of the year, something that was not usual, so the room got quite hot at night with no cooling options but an open window.
Soggiorno piacevole in casa di Luciana. L'abitazione è situata proprio di fronte alla statua del porcellino, un punto davvero ottimo e centrale! La mattina un po rumoroso il risveglio causa il mercato che apre molto presto proprio sotto la finestra della stanza. Non ho avuto modo di vedere Luciana ma solo sentirla per tel, ci ha accolti il marito persona carina e disponibile. La stanza molto pulita e spaziosa, davvero graziosa. Consiglio questo host.
A presto! :)
Firstly, the location is great if U don't mind noise from the square, I even need the ear plug to sleep. Everything are just walking distance. Didn't meet Luciana but her husband instead. Her husband just leave after hand over the key and not even show me where's the room. The next day other roommate ask me for the wifi password (I assume he didn't get the password from the host). The worst part is when I check out. Luciana's husband shouted at me to ask me to check out. The worst host I ever met in my Airbnb experience.
The hostel was as pictured, and did the basic job we required. Unfortunately there is no air conditioning, only a fan (on request) which did not do a very good job of keeping the room cool on a very hot night. The host did not meet us on time and we were left waiting in the hostel, luckily we were let in by some others or we would have been waiting in the sun. One of the beds in the room also was missing a bottom sheet. Other than that, the room was clean and so was the bathroom. There were no towels though.
The experience was great! The location was perfect, loved waking up to the noise of Florence (: and the hosts were very professional. House was very clean. Be sure to bring your own towels!
Appena arrivati, ci è stata mostrata la stanza. Purtroppo, ci siamo subito resi conto di due problemi: la stanza non assomigliava a quella della foto su airbnb, e l'annuncio era fuorviante.
In particolare, nell'annuncio era specificato che l'appartamento aveva 3 stanze, 3 posti letto ed era destinato a 3 ospiti. In realtà, solo una delle 3 stanze ci era stata assegnata, con un letto matrimoniale e un letto singolo. Le restanti 2 camere da letto non erano accessibili, ed erano state anzi destinate ad altri ospiti.
Questo ci ha causato diversi problemi, perché eravamo una compagnia mista in viaggio di lavoro.
Alle nostre richieste di chiarimento, ci è stato risposto molto sbrigativamente che avremmo dovuto immaginare una situazione del genere, perché altrimenti il prezzo sarebbe stato più alto. Con lo stesso atteggiamento ci è stato rapidamente descritto l'appartamento. Infatti, in un ripostiglio erano conservati alcuni ventilatori, che però non ci sono stati mostrati e di cui ci siamo accorti solo l'ultimo (website hidden) avremmo trovati molto utili, visto il grande caldo. È comunque ridicolo che non sia disponibile aria condizionata.
In finale, pensiamo che l'annuncio fosse molto poco chiaro e l'appartamento poco accogliente, e siamo rimasti molto delusi da questa esperienza.
First off, the location of this apartment is wonderful. It is so close to everything in the city. The unit was clean and the other guests staying in the other rooms were quiet and nice. This is a hostel- not a hotel. It is a great place and location for the price. Luciana's husband also greeted us and made the arrival nice and easy.
That being said, we did not have the most comfortable stay. We were in one of the front rooms overlooking the market directly. We were not prepared for the amount of noise that we heard from the room. There were also private parties in the market at night that played music so loud that our entire room shook. We had to keep the windows closed to try to keep out the sound but that prevented any type of air circulation. If you are looking for a quieter stay try to request a room that is not facing the street or stay somewhere else. If you don't mind the noise and want to be in the center of everything this is a good option.
