Maurizio was very accommodating and helpful with everything from getting a SIM card for my phone to location of markets and sights. He was available if I had any questions. He even offered to take me to the train station. The apartment is as pictured, simple but very clean. All cooking and eating utensils were provided. The neighborhood was a little out of the way but once you get your bearings it's easy to find everything. Thank you Maurizio for your kind attention.
My husband and I had a pleasant stay at Maurizio's apartment. It was as described and clean. Location wise, it was perfect for us as it wasn't in the touristy area, we were about a 10-12min walk from the Duomo and 8 min walk to Galleria Dell' Academia, where Michelangelo's David lives. The kitchen was small but functional and well stocked. The washing machine and dishwasher were an added bonus. Shower pressure was great and the hot water was instant. The bed was king size and very comfortable. Maurizio was easy to communicate with and he was flexible with check in/ check out, depending on availability of course. The day we arrived he met us at the apartment at the agreed time. We were grateful that he supplied us with a map and some recommendations on what to do, see and eat. We found him to be a kind and gracious person. It was also very nice of him to offer us a lift to the bus station on our last day. Highly recommend Maurizio's apartment and him as a host!
Maurizio ist ein hervorragender Gastgeber, super nett und entgegenkommend. Insbesondere hat uns seine Flexibilität bei den Check-in- und Check-out-Zeiten sehr geholfen. Am Abfahrtstag konnten wir unsere Koffer spät am Abend abholen!
Seine Wohnung ist sehr gut gelegen, fußläufig vom Zentrum entfernt, in einer ruhigen, sicheren Wohngegend abseits vom Touristentrubel. Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr sauber, verfügt über alles, was man braucht, die Betten sind sehr komfortabel.
I stayed at Maurizio's place for a month. Words cannot describe how lovely the apartment was, or how welcome I was made to feel by the host. Whatever I needed I asked Maurizio, because I did not know how to use public transport, or where the nearest supermarkets where, etc. He always helped me and he also gave me a lift from and to the train station when I arrived and when it was time to leave, as I had two heavy luggages with me. The next time I'm visiting Florence, I am definitely staying at Maurizio's place.
I have to add that the apartment was close to the famous Santa Croce area, where there are many bars and many steak outs for people of all kind of ages. Within walking distance was the San Marco square, where you could catch any bus, and Il Duomo was also like 7 minutes walking distance. The Ponte Vecchio was also within 10 minutes away. Let's just say that the apartment was located in the centre of everything.
Plus, it was an apartment that had everything. It had amenities that were essential and it always warm and it felt right away as home, because it was also cosy.
Sono stato a Firenze 4 giorni per trascorrere il capodanno e visitare la città con due amici. Ottima esperienza!
Maurizio è davvero gentile e cordiale, ha risposto a tutte le mie domande prima e durante la vacanza.
Come descritto nell'annucio è stato molto flessibile sugli orari di checkin e checkout, davvero disponibile si è offerto per un passaggio dalla stazione al nostro arrivo e al ritorno.
L'appartamento, molto pulito e in ordine, è previsto di tutto il necessario e la connesione WiFi funziona molto bene.
Consiglio vivamente Maurizio e il suo appartamento!
ciao Fabrizio, sono contento che siate rimasti soddisfatti,
per quanto riguarda il riscaldamento... mi dispiace! fatto è che con i miei fratelli abbiamo diviso l'appartamento e solo da oggi uso la caldaia nuova che mi hanno installato ieri... quando c'eravate voi non avevo pieno accesso alla vecchia caldaia, ho fatto il possibile... complicato da spiegare... comunque la prossima volta non succederà! ;-)
a presto! m.
I had a wonderful stay in the beautiful apartment! It's done very tastefully with some lovely furniture and an extremely comfortable bed and pillows. The host was very welcoming and helpful and accommodated my busy schedule.
I couldn't have asked for a better place!
My spouse and I stayed 4 nights in Maurizio’s apartment. Maurizio is certainly one of the best hosts we’ve ever had. He was always available to respond to our questions before and during our stay in Florence. He is so much accommodating, attentive and also flexible. He took the time to show us on the map where the main attractions were located. He suggested a few restaurants that we ended up trying and that we really liked.
The apartment was clean and as shown on the picture. Its size is quite good (and as mentioned by Maurizio, the kitchen is tiny but functional). You will also find the needed equipment to make breakfast, to cook basic meals and even to do your laundry (washing machine only). The entrance to the building is secured with a gate that is locked all the time. The Wi-Fi connexion was also really good during our stay.
The location of this apartment was perfect for us. We did not walk more than 20-25 minutes (most of the time 15 minutes) to go to the different attractions. It’s also located in a quiet neighborhood.
We would definitely consider staying at Maurizio apartment in the event of a future visit to Florence.
Ciao a tutti,
sono un musicista e ovviamente mi piace la musica... non tutta :-)
quando viaggio amo avventurarmi organizzando il minimo indispensabile prima di partire,
non mi piace la televisione italiana, mi piacciono i musei e quando arrivo in un luogo lontano da casa mia faccio di tutto per vivere secondo la cultura del posto in cui mi trovo, sono curioso.
mi piace andare al cinema e mi piace mangiare... :-)
vi aspetto a firenze!
