We aw Alex only last night who was ok. Til that night only his mother was with us...who seems uncomfortable with the guests and don't speeks with you... The room is ok, it's cheep, but you don't have any closet or any or any hanger...and it is very noisy...very weird experiance.
We were looking for last minute accommodation and Alex was very helpful. He was friendly and welcoming and offered some advice for the area. There were other people living there and it was a little odd walking through the hallway that I think was also someone's bedroom, and we had to wait for the bathroom, but as Alex says in his description, this isn't a hotel - it's someone's home. We also felt a little awkward because Alex doesn't give a key to the front door - you have a key to the building but you need to buzz him to get into the apartment. We felt a little bad coming home late in case we woke someone up, but Alex said he didn't mind. Overall it's a good place to stay if you want something simple, short term and inexpensive.
Alex è una persona molto disponibile che ti accoglie benevolmente nella sua casa come un amico.
Personne très accueillante et chaleureuse. La nuit c'est très bien passé le seul petit truc la chambre n'était pas comme sur la photo . Sinon c'était propre etc ...
A place with pros and cons. Pros are that the bed was very comfy, good location, lovely house. Cons are the lack of response from Alex, no contact with the host, uneasy vibe to the accommodation i.e. kick the mum out of her bed . Overall it was a decent Airbnb as the room was large and the bed comfy, however, it is not the type of place that is warm, friendly and welcoming. I walked past someone in the morning, and said "hello" and no response. Not even sure if it was Alex or somebody else in the house. A weird experience!!
Очень удобно для поездки по делам.Алех и Юля очень гостеприимны и непосредственны.было очень близко к нашей работе,как соответственно и для посещения как города Прато с его достопримечательностями,так и города Флоренции.
