Gaetano was great ! Arrived early and was prompt to meet us. The unit was in great condition providing this is only me and my travel partners 2nd Airbnb stay we thought everything was great. Location couldn't of been any better within 5 min walk to the train station and 10 mins walk to all other attractions in the area.
Located in third floor without elevator, it was a good thing that we only carried small luggage. But this apartment was worth the climb. We really had a great stay at this apartment (it has a strong local vibe -- look at the roof!). The apartment was very near to the Firenze SMN and some nice restaurants. In addition to that, Gaetano was very attentive and professional. He welcomed us in the apartment and provided some insights about the city.
The location is very central and accessible to the "must see" places, restaurants and the shopping district. The place was as shown in the photos - spacious, well-equipped (including wifi and sufficient towels). The living room, dining and bedroom were clean but the bathroom needed extra cleaning. Unfortunately also during our stay, renovation was ongoing at an apartment (in the same building) in lower level so the stairs and handrails were so dusty. (We weren't informed about this ongoing work but it looked like it had started several weeks prior to our stay.) The double glass windows helped in containing the noise outside during the night (there is a discotheque in front of the apartment). But after a long, tiring day exploring the city, we all managed to sleep well during the night.
Gaetano, however made up for all these. He was such a wonderful host. He was prompt in communicating with us, answered all our questions and warmly welcomed us to his place. It was also helpful that he posted important information/recommendations on the wall by the main door (e.g., where to eat, the nearest grocery store, taxi phone numbers, etc). Thank you Gaetano.
La atencion del anfitrion excelente. El apartamento era de acuerdo a lo especificado. La ubicacion muy buena a 10 minutos andando de la zona del Duomo.
Gaetano was at all times very professional and available. Responded quickly when reached for. The apartment was just as described.
The house is exactly like in the picture. Its quite easy to find as its located near the train station and just a walking distance to few tourist attractions nearby. We are so relieve that there a few halal restaurant nearby to satisfy our craving on meats. Overall its a good experience and recommended to others
Gaetano made sure that our visit was as smooth as possible, eventhough he couldn't be on site to welcome us...
The appartment is really well located, 5min walk to the S.M.Novella rail station (with quite heavy luggage)...
We did practically all main spots of Florence on foot and you don't really need to take any transportation... It took us nearly 15min on foot to arrive to the Duomo.
We had all we needed in terms of comfort and amenities.
Thanks again Gaetano for your war welcome and hope to see you again !!!
