About this listing
CASA SAN GIOVANNI
WiFi & Air-Conditioning
This gorgeous one bedroom flat is located in central Florence in Via Palazzuolo on the second floor of a fourteenth century listed building between Piazza Santa Maria Novella and the picturesque Lungarno embankment leading upstream to the Ponte Vecchio. Casa San Giovanni is a typical Florentine home, the apartment is bright and has been elegantly refurbished for maximum comfort.
The holiday apartment Casa San Giovanni includes: one double bed and one double sofa-bed, flat screen TV, central heating and air-conditioning, a beautiful open kitchen/living space, kitchen with four-burner gas hob, dining area, traditional terracotta-flooring, electric oven, sink, electric kettle and toaster, iron and ironing board, Moka coffee maker, fridge/freezer, dishes, WiFi, cutlery and hoover. The flat is 45 square meters and accommodates 2+2 persons.
Stefano and his brother Paolo are friendly and gracious hosts with a shared encyclopaedic knowledge of their city.
Casa San Giovanni is on a lively street but once inside, feels so private and tranquil you almost forget you are in central Florence. The location couldn't be better for access to the historical center, the river, nearby Cascine park, the opera house, all the museums and the central station.
The two brothers have designed their own map of Florence and a brilliant small guide of “Floretine Tips” helping you find great restaurants, cafes and special places to visit.
Highly, highly recommended
My sisters and I spent a few days in Florence and we had a great time in this beautiful city. Paolo is a great host and we would not hesitate to book again with him if we ever get the chance to go back to Florence.
Paolo made our stay in his city very comfortable. Right from the start, he came to pick us up from the train station (which is only a few minutes walk from the apartment). He had great advices to give us and was very friendly and welcoming. Everything was as he described. The apartment was clean and has all the amenities listed. Everything is within a walking distance of the apartment. I highly recommend staying at Paolo's apartment.
Wonderful apartment!!! Fantastic host :) I will be back (when the weather is a little warmer perhaps!)
The apartment was clean and fully decorated with everything you would want in an apartment. Paolo was also friendly and helpful in introducing Firenze to us. A cheap and nice restaurant for dinner is just a few minutes walk away.
Paolo was fantastic, he arranged a time to meet and kept us uptodate with any changes.
The apartment was lovely and Paolo was a fantastic host who left us maps, listed places to go and restaurants to eat. We had a fantastic stay at this location and would definately recommond this appartment to others as it was in an ideal location close to all amenities.
We stayed at this palce for five nights.
Paolo met us at the train station and walked with us to the apartment. He gave us good tips and information about city.
The location was perfect because anything we need to see is in walking distance.
Apartment was very nice and clean. We relly enjoyed on this Paolo's apartment.
The apartment is well described by the pictures: it is cozy, refined, very clean and very well maintened. It's a small walk from everywhere you need to see in Florence and in a lively meighbourhood full of restaurants and bar. Paolo is a great host: he picked us up at the station and gave us all the information we could need. Best place to be.

About the Host, Paolo
My name is Paolo and I'm a full time Airbnber! I like to take care of my guests, by providing them with maps, suggestions and whatever else needed. I'm also very happy to come and pick you up at the station.
I speak Italian and English, so foreign tourists are more than welcome.
