Paolo was very nice and was waiting for us at the door upon our arrival. He showed us everything in the apartment and invited us to take advantage of the many guidebooks and resources in the apartment during our stay. Paolo was very kind and made us feel welcome. The apartment is as advertised. It's clean, safe, in a great location just off the Ponte Vecchio and with everything we needed. It was a brutally hot week in Florence and we could have used a fan, however, we believe that was the case for everyone in Italy that week! Thank you Paolo for a wonderful stay. We would definitely recommend your home to friends.
We had a fantastic stay here! Paolo was an amazing host, he was so friendly and gave us all the information we needed to explore Florence! He even had a website and app to help you locate restaurants and attractions in the area. The apartment was clean, tidy and stylish and we loved that it was originally a convent! There was plenty of room for 3 people, and the location was great! We would definitely recommend this apartment :)
Paolo was a good host just very serious. Good central location, nice apartment. On our arrival Paolo provided us with maps and advice on good restaurants near by and suggested places to go.
Paolo's apartment is quite simply stunning and perfectly located for all tourist sightseeing. The apartment, part of the old monastery is very cool on the inside with soaring temperatures when we were there.
Paolo is a true gentleman and provided us with his local knowledge when we arrived and answered all of our tourist queries. Would love to have stayed longer but will return again without a doubt.
This was a lovely apartment for our trip to Florence. Despite incredibly hot weather (mid 90s every day) the apartment remained wonderfully cool, and was a true oasis for us when the heat became too much. He location was ideal, steps from the Ponte Vecchio but on a very quiet street so that we were completely insulated from the crowds. Paolo was a wonderful host, very welcoming and with lots of helpful recommendations. Our only complaint would be that the hot water in the shower does run out quite quickly, although given the heat this was not too much of an issue for us.
The place was cozy and comfortable to stay! Paolo is so kind and I really liked the restaurant he recommended. thanx, Paolo:)
Paolo was a very helpful host who hung around waiting for me to arrive even though I got lost and was late. He had lots of helpful guides and tips on beautiful Florence and his apartment was very central for all the museums and restaurants.

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.
