Alex's place was a bit further out than we expected, but that's okay! Bed was big and comfy, use of the kitchen was appreciated and a good bathroom.
We stayed at Alex place for 3 amazing nights, the room is just wonderful, we had all privacy, comfortable and free wifi as well :)
Yes, Prato is outside Florence, but 20 minutes by train wasn't a problem ( +5 Euros 2 ways ticket that never been checked ), and overall it was the cheapest offer you can get (with real good living quality) to get in&around Florence,
He allowed us to cook in his kitchen, appeared to open the flat however we weren't back exactly on agreed time, and the bathroom was nice with hot water in shower.
Disadvantages ? .... hmmm
If you aren't that dogs fan, maybe you should start to be so as his cute small dogs really like visitors :) and also be aware of Alex, as he jokes so funny alot :)
Stayed with Alex for 3 nights. He made everything really easy and communication was great. His place in Prato is well connected by the train and bus lines so you can either head into Florence or off to Bologna for the day! His house was extremely clean and had everything you'd expect plus a crazy little dog! Would recommend this to others looking for a cheap place to stay.
Alex was good to us although we only spent couple of minutes of talking before he went to Germany for his vacation the next day. We stay there for three night to travel in florence. We contact his flatmates, Bambina whenever we need help. Thank you for the stay!
Alex was a great host!, Very welcoming and funny, We stayed for 3 days, we needed to extend one more day and he agreed easily, He showed us some nice places to eat, the place is near bus station 30 mins to florence (bus for around 2 euros).
clean bathroom with hot water , nice basic kitchen(i didnt try cooking), nice room with big bed ,clean linens and big balcony
Great place, great host, great price,if i ever wanted to visit again i will definelty call alex.
and a playful crazy dog :D leonidis..
Alex is an extremely warm and friendly host - when we arrived, he offered us food and drink straight away. He was very kind in giving suggestions for local food and transport. He's got a cute doggy as well.
The room itself is warm and colourful, only slight issues was the weak internet signal, but it was more than sufficient for doing all basic things on the internet (and who goes to Italy just to stay online anyway?). Place is well located close to bus to Florence and within 10 minutes to the train station.
Thanks, Alex, for being such a helpful and friendly host!
Me and my girlfriend enjoyed our stay at Alex's place, he was the best host we ever had - friendly and helpfull, he met us at railwaystation and took by car to his house, it is relly good situated and room is pretty good, also he gave us 2 bikes for free, and we were able easily travel in Prato and Firenze as well.
Once again thanks a lot mate, we really enjoyed out travel and wish you the best !

Alex is a great, funny, informative guy! He accepted our reservation on very short notice and was very hospitable. He showed us around Prato and really knows his stuff about the history of this beautiful city. We really came to appreciate it thanks to him! And the bed is quite comfortable. Highly recommend to stay at his place! Thanks again, Alex!
I had a nice week at Alex'. Prato is very central to visit all great parts of the tuscany like firenze, pisa, lucca, siena, etc. He is a funny person, has good advice to make your stay comfortable , knows fantastic places to eat the best food ever, and very secret lakes up in the hill where you can enjoy the full beauty of the tuscany nature. We got along very well and I am glad to have met Alex and stayed at this place. Ce vediamo ancora una volta, salute Alex.
