This apartment is AMAZING and beautiful. Clean, historic, and comfortable, this is home in Florence. Wi-fi was easy to use, directions and instructions were clear and posted, and all amenities are exactly as described with no surprises. Gaetano is incredibly responsive to any questions asked.
I never did see my host, but my sister did when she checked in before us. She said he seemed friendly. The neighbourhood was very convenient--close to train and bus and to the sights and many restaurants and stores including a grocery store. However, the disadvantage was the Disco directly across the street that was open every single night until at least about 2:30 AM or later necessitating closing the windows that needed to be left open for air. Luckily we had fans, since there is no air conditioning! The other problem was the stairs--six flights! Quite steep and additionally dangerous because of cement dust on them and all of the railings, due to (what looked like) never ending renovations on another floor. Quite well equipped, but wardrobe needs fixing--only one drawer was useable and the wardrobe itself was filled with laundry--both clean and dirty, it would seem. Although it says suitable for four people, it is really better suited for 2 since when the couch is pulled out, there is not too much room to manoeuvre. My husband found the shower too small, but I don't think much could be done about that. Very well equipped with laundry soap et and cleaning items. This was necessary due to the dust!
Check-in was quick and easy. He was on time to meet us at the apartment. The apartment was just as the ad said it would be. It was very clean and everything was ready for us. The location is great: easy to find and access to the different locations we wanted to see in Firenze. I would recommend this space to my friends.
Very convenient location as it is just beside SMN station and the bus station. The place is really clean and spacious as well.
The location of the apartment was great and quite near the train station. The apartment was clean. The equipments in the apartment met the basic needs as well. Gaetano was nice and easy to contact with. We had a problem with the water in the final day, Gaetano handled the problem immediately and changed the apartment for us. It was a really good experience in Florence.
Gaetano was very nice and on time! He provided excellent directions from the train station for our team and the train station is only a couple of minutes walk away. Everything he told us about the apartment was true and delivered in a professional manner. All the pictures shown are accurate. The apartment is located in a central area, making it easy to access popular sites by walking short distances. Additionally the suggestions Gaetano made about restaurants, museums, sites to visit, etc., were helpful and accurate.
We loved the apartment--it was great! Thank you Gaetano for such a great experience in Florence!
We had a great time at the Prestige House Central Station! Gaetano was at the apartment waiting for us even though we arrived early. The decor was a very cute shabby chic and included all necessary amenities. The location was really great in a non-crowded area of Florence. We had an amazing experience and should have stayed longer!
