Нас встретила, Юлия, Алекс в это время путешествовал. Все было замечательно, у нас не возникло абсолютно никаких трудностей, Юлия помогала разобраться с транспортными и бытовыми вопросами, вообщем, мы полностью довольны пребыванием в этом доме) Прато, действительно, очень хорошее место для посещения Флоренции, тихий пригород, очень близко, все , что нужно находится рядом. Огромное спасибо, нам все понравилось, приедем еще!)
Unfortunately we haven't met Alex, but we were told this in advance. Although we didn't met him everything went fine, because his friend Luliia (a spontaneous and nice person) let us in. It was a bit strange that we were only given the keys from the front door, but not for the apartment. But it wasn't a problem, cause although we were at Prato until 1 am the son (??!) let us in. The room itself is clean but quite loud (it's right next to the street), the bathroom is ok. Unfortunately the kitchen isn't very clean (there is mould on the wall and the ceiling and everything seems to be a bit sticky). Communication with Luliia was a but difficult, because her English is not so good. But she tried her best and we could understand the keywords. All in all: this accommodation is good for short term staying.
The place was a bit far from Florence. We had to walk to the Prato station for 15-20 minutes then arrive at the Florence station another 20 minutes later. Alex mentioned a bus, but we preferred the train. Our room itself though was big and comfortable. The only thing was that it got very hot and there wasn't much air circulation. We also were not given keys to the house and just the keys to the front gate, so we were only able to enter the house after 7/8pm. Other than that, we did have a good time in Florence and was even able to visit Pisa in one day. It was a decent place.
Alex is a nice and helpful guy .The room is definietely the nicest part of the house- it’s spacious and luminous with a big and confy bed. The problem is, it’s situated next to the noisy street, so I wouldn’t recommend it to people with sleeping disorders XD The house is located near the the city center and a bus stop from which you can go directly to Florence.
The greatest disadvantage of this place is fact, that you won’t get keys to the flat. Every time you want to enter the house (always after at least 7:30 p.m.), you have to ring the bell and wait till somobody (often it was mother of alex) will open the door. It made us feel very unconfortable.
Alex advised us to leave our car in a public parking 50 meters from the house. Unfortunately, somebody scratched intentionally it-the scratch is very visible-in the front and one-meter long. I mention about it not because we blame our host for what happened, our purpose is to warn the future guests against similar accidents and make them reconsider the place where they leave their cars.
To put in a nutshell, in spite of this unfortunate event and all mentioned before inconveniances, we are quite satisfied with our stay.
Alex is a lovely person helped us to find the place and gave us many advices. We stayed quiet long in Alex's home. But just sometimes came back home earlier, maybe no one can help us to open the door. Overall good!
