The Space

Nice double room in the heart of historical centre of Florence, just a few steps from the cathedral.
the Apt is in pedestrian area, in quiet street, the apartment is located on the forth floor all 'inside of a historic building with elevator.
A short walk from the beautiful Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, and the Cathedral of Santa Croce, Shopping Area, bars and restaurants.
Railway station of Santa Maria Novella at only 5 min. walk.
Peretola Airport of Florence is (email hidden) from the city center, the best way to reach the center is get a taxi, that have a fix fare to the city center of 20 Euro.
Possibility of booking entrance for the Uffizi Gallery and to the Accademia Gallery.
Does not require transportation from the station, the apartment is located in a pedestrian area and all the attractions, museums, shops and restaurants can be reached on foot.
The street where is locate the apt, is really a tipycal florentine streat with old shops, bakery, Gelato shop, alimentary market, laundry, and fashion boutique.

  • Mario was a very nice host with excellent English who pointed out many of the great stops in Florence and especially the best gelato places in the city! The location is perfect as it is very close to all the attractions and only a 5 minute walk from the train station. The room is nice and he pictures are not deceiving at all. The bathroom is shared by the guests, Mario and his room mate who is another very nice man. One of the two of them would often be in the common room watching TV, but it wasn't so loud as to bother us in our own room.

  • Io e la mia fidanzata abbiamo trascorso molto bene i giorni di permanenza come ospiti del signor Villanis. La stanza era pulita, ben ordinata e ammobiliata, come il resto della casa. Mario è stato molto ospitale e disponibile, ci ha dato consigli sul dove recarci sia come punti di interesse che per la ristorazione, oltre che averci messo a disposizione qualsiasi cosa per eventuali colazioni, pranzi o cene. Wi-Fi gratuito e funzionante. La casa è situata vicinissima al centro della città e alla stazione, oltre che ad alcuni punti di interesse turistico, gli spostamenti sono stati molto semplici. Soddisfatto della scelta!

  • Great location! Close enough to the train station, and easy walking distance to the Duomo and some great food. Quiet, spacious and clean. We were very comfortable during our stay.

    Mario & his roommate were excellent hosts. They were welcoming and friendly - and provided some excellent restaurant recommendations. When they were able, they took the time to offer us caffè and talk with us. They even helped us practice our Italiano! We would definitely stay here again if/when we return to Florence.

  • Absolutely fabulous!!! The position meant a walk to everything I wanted to see - Ufizzi gallery, galleria academia, San Lorenzo etc. Mario couldn't meet me but he ensured someone was there to meet me and show me around the apartment. The apartment itself was very homely and had everything I needed to feel at home. Grazie!

  • Our stay did not live up to our expectations. As I looked into what we thought we were getting, I noticed that almost all of the reviews were not for the apartment that we were staying at. Look at Mario's profile and you will see what happened. He talks about moving after 6 years. The old apartment did not have an elevator but you had a private bath, apparently one for each room. The private bath is what we were expecting. Mario never came out and said we were getting one and the description says there is only one bath, but the old reviews implied a private bath (guess that is my mistake believing reviews). All but the last page or so of reviews were for the old place. I think that these 6+ pages of old reviews should be moved to "other property reviews" section since they no longer apply.

    Here is our experience with the actual apartment. The photos are accurate, although the bath and kitchen are much more cluttered than in the pictures. There IS an elevator in this apartment, which is one way you can tell an old review. The apartment has a great location. It is about 5 min walk to the train station and about the same from where we returned our rental car. It is in a good area and close to the attractions.

    On the negative side, Mario is renting out both rooms of this 2 bedroom 1 BATH apartment and then sleeping in the living room. He also had a friend staying with him all three nights that we were there. The last night we had 7 people staying in a 1 bathroom apartment that is about 800 sf. (2 in our room, 3 in the other room, and Mario and his friend on the couch in the living room). It just seemed way too crowded although we really didn't have much interaction with anyone else anyway. Each night we were wondering in the morning if there would be a two hour wait to take a shower (which didn’t happen). It just did not seem private, especially when there was no lock on the bedroom door. I would like to think that everyone who stays at an apartment will respect your stuff, but with so many people around, I would like to lock my door when I leave.

    Response from Mario:

    I'm sorry I have not enjoyed the apartment and to have invented all these things.
    The reviews are all current and old apartment there are only a few and very old, and if bob and his wife had read the profile is written that the bathroom is shared.
    It false that there are 8 people in the apartment but only 4.
    Unfortunately I do not think they are the right people to use Airbnb, as from the first day you are always shown closed and have never interacted with them I do with the other guests in the house. The morning often make coffee for my guests but did not appreciate and I was asked not to prepare for them.
      I'm sorry that these people book without knowing what book and without reading the card where the apartment is quite clear that there is an elevator, and that the room has a shared bathroom. I'm really sorry but I think for them it is better to find a hotel next time.
