Greeted by our host and made to feel very welcome. Listing description was accurate. Neighbourhood was ideal.
Sandro was very responsive by email prior to our arrival. The day that we arrived Sandro met us before the usual check in time Hetreated us warmly and provided a quick orientation to the apartment. The apartment is spotlessly clean with good linens and towels. The kitchen had good knives, pots and pans and dishes. A Carrefour grocery store is in walking distance and a bakery is just across the street.
To see the sights most places are 15 minutes walk. The location is great and the apartment was very quiet a night for sleeping (it is on an inner courtyard)
The guide that Sandro left in the apartment was very helpful and included restaurant recommendations. A mobile phone was provided for our use. When we left Sandro helped us to get a taxi.
I recommend staying in the apartment and the hosts
Great location in the heart of the city. Sandro made us feel welcome and gave us lots of information about Florence.
Sandro met us warmly as we arrived at Ghibellina by taxi, helped us into the apartment and treated us like friends. The apartment was true to the photos, and is located in a good location central to the sites and the Arno. The apartment had plenty of room for my wife and me, in fact, we had a spare bedroom and 1 1/2 bathrooms. Very convenient to close-by supermarket and restaurants.
Florence is a beautiful! Our stay was made even better by the apartment- both in location and amenities. Susanna was lovely and very responsive. The apartment is modern, cozy, and conveniently located. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others planning a visit to Florence.
Wonderful apartment in Venice! Sandro graciously accepted our apology for being late- train delays++
He waited for us !
Showed us the apartment, had a book of information and suggestions.
He provided us with a local cell phone if we needed anything.
After 2 weeks of travel, it was so wonderful to have a washing machine.
Apartment was very comfortable and in a great location.
Would recommend staying here - absolutely!!
The apartment was fantastic. A great place for a visit of Firenze. It was very central located, clean and quiet. Many bars, shops and reataurants in the neighborhood. Susanna is a perfect host.
