Federico was a kind and attentive host. There was a problem with the apartment not being accessible by the elevator (it is actually up three flight of stairs and down a long hallway). and the stairs to the loft bed being too narrow without rails - Federico was very attentive to our concerns. He offered to get me another apartment. We decided to stay. The other issue with the apartment was very loud noise - like a bar at night. It was particularly noisy on the weekend. The location is wonderful and the apartment was clean and was very nice.
Great location. This place is really near from duomo. Clean room. Good accommodation. One impressive thing is there is a portable WiFi. It was really helpful. I enjoyed Florence very much. Thanks.
The location is amazing, 1 minute from Duomo, 5 minutes from G.Academia, 10 - 15 minutes from train station by walking. The apartment is large with a lot of space. The sheets/towels are very clean. The furniture, fixtures and decoration are old and not pleasant. (On the couch, there are pillows with no pillow cases or cover zippers, so I don't know how they get cleaned. Though there is 40 Euro cleaning fee, there was a bundle of someone's hair in one of the drawers, and left over medicine on the bathroom floor behind the sink.) The bed is so squeaky that every time you move, you may wake up the person sleeping next to you. Only bath towels are provided (one per person), and not even a hand towel. So, if you take a shower, you need to dry your hair with the large bath towel first, then your body with same towel or visa versa. You need to dry your hands with the large bath towel with no hanging rack in the bathroom. In the kitchen, there are no towels/paper towels either, so we used toilet paper. Maybe we were spoiled by our Venice Airbnb apartment (before we arrived in Florance) which only had 20% of the space of the Florance apartment, but every detail was nicely thought of, even including plug adapters, hand, hair and bath towels with a pleasant decoration. Federico is an energetic, charming and smart young gentleman. He sensed my disappointment (though I did't mention it) and offered to refund our money, if we wanted to move to a hotel. This was very nice of him, I appreciated it highly. (In the end, we did not bother moving.) He allowed us to check out two hours late, which was also very nice. When we arrived at the apartment, I asked if the wifi worked, he told us it did. (Wifi was important to me for my work.) When he left, we found out that the wifi did not work, so I called him. He came back to fix it and fixed it. I appreciate his effort. However, he got edgy when I called him the second time to ask when he was arriving. (I was traveling with my 12 year old daughter who had nothing to eat since the morning. I just wanted to find out if we had time to go and get something to eat before he arrived.) Though his reaction is not acceptable and uncalled for in hospitality business, all things considered, I do like Federico and thank him for his efforts. If you want space and central location, and details/decoration etc. is not important to you, I recommend the place. Otherwise, Best Western was cheaper than this apartment and included breakfast.
Federico was waiting to welcome us and "show us the ropes" of the lovely flat, so centrally located. Lovely space to enjoy for a weekend.
My stay in this apartment was totally great! Big private space with everything you need just for your trip, and it is just as impressive as the pictures shown to you. Just one problem, there is no tissue available in the apartment which should not be a huge issue, but for a person with heavy cold like me was really bad. And of course, I cannot thank Federico more with his kindness to let me check out slightly later due to my mishandled luggage issue. Thank you and ciao! =)
A vrai dire, nous hésitons quant à ce qui nous a le plus déçus...
-Le fait que notre hôte promettait de nous rencontrer au tout début du weekend pour nous donner tous les coins sympas de Florence, alors qu'il savait bien que nous ne le verrions pas du weekend;
-Le fait que son ami qui est venu nous ouvrir à insister lourdement pour prendre en photo nos cartes d'identité, comme quoi c'était la façon de faire sur air bnb alors qu'il nous semblait que non
-Le fait que notre hôte avait coupé l'eau chaude sans nous indiquer comment la remettre et qu'il nous a fallu prendre une douche à l'eau froide le matin avant de trouver comment et où chager ceci;
Non, la plus mauvaise surprise est les 60€ payés à l'arrivée pour le ménage (40€ qui n'était pas indiqué dans les frais lors du paiement en ligne) ainsi que les 20€ pour "arrivée tardive" (après 20h..)
Heureusement que la ville de Florence a assez de poésie pour faire relativiser....
L' accoglienza é stata ottima siamo arrivati prima dell' orario previsto per il check in ma non è stato un problema. L' appartenenti corrispondeva alla descrizione dell' inserzione e la posizione é ideale per un soggiorno confortevole
