I arrived at the accommodation a little earlier. He was so kind to come to us in 5 minutes. His place was very clean. The location is really perfect. He was very professional in giving us tourist information about Firenze and around.
Appartement très fonctionnel et superbement placé au coeur de Florence. Très bien équipé, nous n'avons manqué de rien. Paolo nous a indiqué tous les endroits à visiter aussi bien pour la culture que pour la gourmandise. Un séjour charmant!
Can't beat this location. 3 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio. Room was clean and nicely furnished. Paolo was a helpful with touring tips.
He is very helpful and give me a Lot of advice about Florence.The Apartment is good furnished ～I can get everything in this apatment~The Location is also perfect ~By walking i can go to a lot of sight spots ～
Paolo was superb. He is very attentive, and helped us park our car in a nearby underground car park. We didn't know this beforehand, but Florence has a strict vehicle congestion zone for anyone other than residents and locals, so parking is difficult to find on your own. So we followed Paolo on his moped, zipping around a maze of one way streets.
He has his own set of tourist maps, and he pointed out some hidden gems and recommendations; all of which are within walking distance from the apartment (most of Florence is reachable on foot).
As for the apartment, it was really clean, and actually quite cool (Florence was hitting 38 degrees plus when we were there). It's really nicely furnished, with an assortment of ornamental lamps, decorative books and most importantly of all, a comfortable bed.
A great stay, and we'd recommend it greatly.
Nice, clean apartment and an amazing location just a short stroll to the ponte vecchio!
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.

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.
