Great reception from Paolo. Apartment was in a great location, clean and as advertised.
I would definitely recommend this place. It is cozy, clean and in the very heart of the city. The Wifi works fine for me. I regret haven't left enough time for this charming city. Would stay again in Pablo's house if I come back.
Paolo met us and gave us an informative introduction to Florence, including maps and restaurant recommendations. The apartment had everything we needed for a city break. The location was great and very central.
Paulo was extremely helpful and provided great ideas and tips for our time in Florence. The flat was clean, spacious, and in an extremely convenient location. We loved our time in Florence!
Me recomendaron los departamentos de este anfitrión y no se equivocaron. El departamento espectacular, muy bien ubicado, bien pensado, muy limpio. El anfitrión muy preocupado. 100% recomendable.
Paolo was exceptionally professional at all times when answering our questions before our trip, giving us ideas and suggestions for how to get to and around Florence. He met us at the apartment on time and had lots of information to share with us about his city, and many wonderful suggestions for where to eat, wonderful museums, etc.
The apartment itself is absolutely beautiful - you are staying in the cellar of a 1200 year old convent. It is beautifully decorated and very well laid out. The renovation was done with a careful eye to keeping architectural details present, like the shape of the roof, some exposed brick. But it was modernized with the utmost comfort in mind. It is right over the Ponte Vechio, and it's location makes it very easy to go back and rest, if you wish to do so between touring museums, markets, and palaces. If Florence were not such an amazing city, we would have happily stayed in the apartment the whole time! There is plenty of light, good wifi, and very comfy beds. Plus, it is cleaned meticulously.
Our only hiccup was with the hot water heater - there was plenty of hot water but it would run out unless we turned the water off completely and back on again. It was a minor nuisance and I've no doubt Paolo fixed it!
I told Paolo that he almost had a squatter, because I had a hard time convincing my sister to leave!
We had a lovely time in Firenze and found Paolo to be extremely helpful when we arrived. His flat was in a superb location, less than a couple of minutes to the Ponte Vecchio. The flat itself was really charming and I'd highly recommend to any couples looking to spend a few days sightseeing in Florence - wish we were still there!

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.
