We had a wonderful time in Michele's apartment. We arrived late due to parking but he greeted us kindly and welcomed us into the apartment. Michele had lots of information ready for us. Places to eat, supermarkets, best gelato etc. He also provided us with a map and on the map he marked where each place was. Make sure you use his recommendations, you will get the real Florence experience. The apartment was situated in a perfect location too. We could not have asked for a better host, thank you Michele, we loved staying in your apartment.
What a gem of a place in the old part of Florence. This place was cozy and comfortable. There was everything you could need for staying in Florence and not to mention, plenty of books to read.
Michele welcomed us with great knowledge about Florence that you wouldn't find on Yelp or TripAdvisor. He was very kind and accommodating. Despite the washing machine being broken at the time of our arrival, he offered to wash our clothes in lieu of having an operating machine. This was really going out of his way to be a great host. We would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Florence and wants to see the city and immerse themselves in the culture.
Our stay in Florence was possibly the best Airbnb experience I have had. Wonderful location, quaint and clean studio, and Michele as a wonderful host. The neighborhood provided a nice escape from the foot traffic of tourism and seemed to provide the more authentic setting of the city many of us search for. Locals markets and restaurants just steps away, and the center of Florence just a ten minute walk away. Highly recommended for your stay in Florence. Michele greeted us at the door and showed us to our wonderful studio. He stayed for perhaps twenty minutes to provide us restaurant suggestions and enoteca and cafe locations. A nicely printed guide to accompany his suggestions along with a map showing precisely where all destinations were located. Amazing experience. Stay here.
Michele was a wonderful host! He left a map and suggestions for amazing restaurants and gelato recommendations. The apartment was very nice with all the amenities we needed. It was in a great location walking distance to everything. I would rent this place again when I visit Florence. Thank you so much Michele.
A medio día cuando llegamos, nos esperaba Michele que nos ayudo con las maletas. Tenía preparada toda la información para disfrutar del apartamento y de la ciudad. Sus recomendaciones para comer fueron imperdibles.
El apartamento es muy bello y cómodo. La ubicación es perfecta, cerca de todos los lugares de interés, pero sin perder el contacto con la auténtica Florencia.
Michele was a wonderful host! The apartment was fully kitted out, in an amazing location, and Michele made sure we were well informed about restaurants and attractions in the area. Definitely would stay there again!
