Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • All'Aida'S House Keur Aida mi sono sentito davvero come a casa. La stanza è pulita, silenziosa e confortevole, ma questa è cosa da poco rispetto alla calda accoglienza di Akela: allarga il cuore trovare persone così gentili, sorridenti e accoglienti. Se poi si rientra a notte tarda e Akela non c'è, due meravigliosi gatti parlanti vegliano discreti e ti danno il benvenuto appollaiati nelle loro cucce mentre un simpaticissimo barboncino bianco di nome Nenè ti scodinzola tra le gambe facendoti sentire atteso. Grazie davvero.

    Grazie di cuore.
    E stato un grandissimo piacere e un onore condividere il nostro spacio con una personna allegra e piacevole.
    Grazie per tutto Alex e tanto di cappello.

  • Akela was a brilliant host- really helpful and on hand whenever I needed something. The room was lovely and clean, and full of Character. The view is really great too. Looking out the window onto the ground below with a nice cup of coffee was devine. Bathroom was great, location was really close to everything, and right in the heart of Firenze!

    I'd highly recommend staying with Akela, and would definitely do it again!

    Response from Aida'S House:

    Thank you very much my dear friend.
    The Photo of Florence night is incredibly beautiful.
    I'm really happy and I will be waiting for your next visit to Florence.

  • I had a wonderful tim staying here! It was in a nice, quiet section of the city not far from the train station, the Accademia, and Il Duomo. Akela was a kind and helpful host who really made me feel at home. You get your own room and bathroom, which is very nice. There are a lot of steps but if you don't mind (it's a great workout!), I would suggest staying here. Thank you so much for making my stay so perfect!

  • Akela è un host gentilissimo e disponibile. Ti accoglie con un gran sorriso e ti fa sentire a casa.Tutto era perfetto e pulito, la camera, la colazione ed il bagno privato. La posizione poi è centrale, comoda per visitare a piedi il centro di Firenze e collegata molto bene con i mezzi pubblici.

    Grazie per tutto.E facile di servire una persona gentile come te.
    Alla prossima.

  • Akela was an excellent host! He went above and beyond any expectations and offered an exceptional concierge service. The room was cozy, the private & unshared bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable (especially compared to European hotels!). The location in florence is one of the best, 5 minutes to the statue of David and the St. Mary Basilica Dome, and a 10 minute walk to the river, excellent restaurants, and shopping markets. I will certainly consider staying here again whenever my ventures lead me back to Florence, Italy.

    Response from Aida'S House:

    Thank you for all my dear. The gift is superb.
    Ciao caro.

  • My host Akela is a very nice guy..his wife Silvia and also little one Aida. Akela helped me to carry my luggage to the apartment and sometimes offered to carry my big shopping bags. Im a singke traveller and i felt safe in the apartment. I went out everynight to hv dinner around Duomo and walked back to the apartment without fear of walking alone. The breakfast was good during my 6 nights staying there and I decide the time to have breakfast. They also gave me guides to the post office and few shops there. I hope to stay there again and would recommend to my friends who will visit Florence. :)

    We are proud and honored to have you Aida's house.
    After your departure, Aida always asked after you.
    Our doors are always open to you.
    Akela, Silvia and Aida.

  • Akela was a wonderful host! I have been visiting Italy solo and I really enjoyed exploring Florence and then having Aida'a house to come home to for a siesta and at night. It is a great location--once I got there the first time I had no trouble finding it again and there are so many wonderful walks to and from "The Solitary." Akela, please tell Aida goodbye for me and tell your cats that I miss them (and your beautiful city.)

    Response from Aida'S House:

    You left a large empty at Aida's house.
    Cats have the nostalgia of your tenderness.
    Small Aida send you a kiss.
    Hope to see you again.

  • Staying at Akela's apartment was a fantastic experience. Akela was very welcoming and was always available to assist me if I had questions or needed anything. He went above and beyond what was expected of the experience and I loved how you can set your own breakfast time each morning as well as select the type of beverage you'd like with your breakfast, simply by filling out a short slip that you just leave outside your door. The room was comfortable and is a good size for single travellers. There is a bus stop conveniently located just outside where it takes you to the main train station. Although (website hidden) map indicated the walk from the train station to the Akela's place would be about 17mins, it took me, however, much longer as it wasn't quite as easy trying to wheel my luggage over very narrow sidewalks and cobblestone roads (which you will find anywhere in Florence). So if you are planning to bring luggage that's on wheels, I would recommend taking the #6 bus from the train station for just 1.20 euros which stops about a block or less from Akela's place. His place is also very centrally located and I was able to get to just about anywhere by foot. If I'm ever in Florence again, I would definitely take up the opportunity to stay at his place again if it's available. Thanks again for a lovely stay, Akela!
