Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here. The room was very nice and clean. We also cooked in the shared kitchen which was nice. The traffic noise is pretty much constant. The street that the airbnb is on is very very busy. You can pretty much hear everything which was very frustrating when you wanted to sleep or enjoy a nice dinner out on the patio. The hosts were very responsive to our questions which was a plus. They also have two bikes that your free to use which i recommend as its a great way to see the city! I suggest bringing a set of ear plugs ;) Overall the location is pretty close to the city centre and it was a nice place !

  • We spent in the room 3 nights. The room was really good. It was clean and big enough for 3 people. We had also a small garden just for us. It was really beautiful with a big orange tree next to the balcony.
    There was also a bus stop near the house. We need just 10 Minutes to get in the city centre with the bus.
    Mario and Domenico were really nice people. They show us everything on a map we should see in Florence.
    I really recommend to stay there....

  • We had a perfectly wonderful experience at this guest house. It had absolutely everything we needed, and was very clean. Comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen to use. There is a lovely supermarket very close and its about a 20 minute walk to the centre of town, or an easy 5 minute bus ride. Definitely recommend!!!!

  • Great place! Exactly as advertised - including fresh oranges from the tree in the courtyard! And we had two terrific bike rides using the bikes they have available! Mario and Domenico were gracious and helpful at all times. And yes, it's in the city so there is street noise. We have earplugs for the plane rides anyway so that wasn't a problem. We highly recommend staying here!

  • El servicio muy bueno, muy lindo el lugar, habitacion grande, baño muy moderno y muy limpio. Esta un poco alejado del centro y el servicio de buses en Florencia es defciente, los buses tardan mucho y van muy llenos.saludos

  • Domenico and Mario are amazing hosts. Friendly, caring and very effective when it comes to specific requests or city information. The room was perfect, very clean. The bathroom is big and comfy. If you smoke, you will appreciate the private patio. If I were to return to Florence, I would definitely return to these lovely Italian guys' guest house .

  • This was great. The room, with private terrace and bathroom was very good. The mosaic floor was beautiful. The bed is ver comfotable. Mario and Dominico are wonderful hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The location is not far from the city centre and buses are very close. The only thing that may not suit everyone is there is some traffic noise, but regardless of that it is well worth staying here and my wife and I would definitely stay again. Highly recommended.

  • Nous avons passé 1 nuit chez Mario&Domenico lors d'un road trip en Italie. Nous avons été bien conseillés pour visiter la ville et diner. La chambre est joliment décorée, propre mais un peu bruyante car une fenêtre donne sur la rue. La salle de bain est propre et fonctionnelle. La petite terrasse privative pour la chambre est très sympathique!
    La guest house se situe a 20 minutes a pied du centre ville.

    We spent 1 night in Florence in guest house. Host gave advices to us for visit city and dinner. Room is very nice, clean but with some noise because one window is on the street. Bathroom is clean and commodious. The little private terrace is very sympatic!
    Room is at 20 min afoot to city center.

  • notre séjour à Florence a été un peu frisquet, mais c'est seulement au niveau du climat, pas de l'ambiance ni de l'accueil de nos hôtes qui se sont montrés très serviables et accueillants.
    renseignements très utiles sur les petits bars où prendre le petit déjeuner, les lignes de bus, les restos sympas.
    et la chambre est aussi jolie que sur la photo!!!
