HAVE A WONDERFUL STAY AT MY APARTMENT!
Thanks Silvia, we enjoyed staying in your appartment. It was a bit tiny but very comfortable and clean. The appartment is suitable for 3 people. Silvia provided us with usefull information about Florence sights. Andrey
The reservation was canceled 31 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Silvia is a lovely host. Communications were promptly replied to. We received a warm friendly welcome on our arrival from both Silvia and her sister, with the addition of cakes and biscuits, and milk in the fridge to make a cup of tea. Our host gave us lots of useful information regarding transport and places of interest (there was also a folder brimming with information, and several travel guide books). Silvia had reserved us tickets at the museums we wanted to visit, and this saved us long queues (museums do charge extra for reserved tickets though).
The apartment was clean, comfortable, and as described and shown in the pictures. We had everything that we needed for an enjoyable stay. The apartment is on a fairly busy road and we did hear the traffic (but we do live on a quite residential road and so not used to any traffic noise). It is ideally located a short distance from the tram stop, which takes a 10 minute tram ride to the town of Florence.
We would recommend the apartment to anyone wishing to stay in Florence.
La nostra esperienza in casa di Silvia è stata senz'altro positiva. L'appartamento è in ottimo stato e veramente arredato e corredato di tutto.
Sono a disposizione dell'appartamento due bici, tante guide su Firenze e la Toscana in generale ed è inoltre a pochi minuti dal tram che in altrettanti pochi minuti vi porta al centro di Firenze.
Manca l'aria condizionata (cosa di cui Silvia con correttezza ci aveva informati più volte), ma erano disponibili due ventilatori, uno per ciascuna camera da letto.
Abbiamo sempre parcheggiato senza nessuna difficoltà la nostra auto in strada sotto l'appartamento.
Lo consiglio senz'altro.
We had a lovely experience in Florence staying at Silvias apartment in July 2012.
We were collected at the train station and received a warm welcome.
The location was good being close to a Tram stop and the apartment was very well equipped and secure.
We would definitely reccomend Silvias apartment for your stay in the wonderful city of Florence.
Silvia and her apartment were perfect. Upon our arriving 1 hour late to the train station, Silvia warmly greeted us and took us via metro to her apartment. Her apartment was charming, with fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and some food. The apartment is only 2 blocks from the metro in a safe neighborhood on the second floor. The apartment has any amenity you would need and can easily fit 3 people. I highly recommend staying at Silvia's lovely apartment.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
