The place is very nicely decorated and organized. We have everything we needed there. Room is spacious, clean and beautiful. We could see Barbara and her family must have spent lots of time on it. We didn't have a chance to meet Barbara herself as she is busy with her own work but her dad greeted us and showed us everything in the apartment and provided us more than enough information. Barbara also prepared tips and guides based on her own experience such as the best gelato in town, best Tuscany food in town etc. all are very useful! We had such a great time in Florence and we will for sure stay there again next time.
Barbara's dad was very welcoming and the apartment was easy to find, great local restaurant. Room was comfortable and clean, and was as described.
Unos días antes de llegar a Florencia, Barbara de contactó para darnos información sobre La ciudad y como llegar al departamento. Una vez allí nos recibieron muy cálidamente. El lugar es muy lindo y muy cómodo! En el cuarto barbara también nos dejo una carpeta con información turística de firenze. La pasamos muy bien allí. Nos facilito mucho nuestra estadía. El desayuno nos encantó!
Barbara was unable to meet us on arrival.. But her awesome father did. She was so sweet to try to meet us up before leaving on her trip.. But I didn't want to have her go through that trouble. Very thoughtful. Her father and her were very accommodating! I didn't know this.. But they even come tidy up your room. I didn't want her dad going through the trouble.. So I made sure to make my bed everyday. Haha.
The B&B was like two lights away from the train station (Firenze Rifredi) .. Which is one stop from the central train station. It was really easy getting back and forth.
They're a very sweet family.. Her, her mother, and her father! Great B&B!
We veryu h enjoyed our stay. It had very clean and comfortable rooms. They were Well appointed and convenient to the train and business district.
房間相當乾淨，漂亮，甚至比照片上看到旳還棒。廚房也是非常乾淨漂亮，房東為我們準備了許多種類的早餐，冰箱裡還有火腿起司牛奶果汁，每天還可以喝一杯膠囊咖啡。有電梯，有陽台，可以坐在陽台上晒晒太陽，或者洗好衣服後曬在陽台上。每天都會為我們整理房間，感覺就像飯店式的管理。地理位置雖然不是在S.M.N車站，而是北邊的一個小站，但從小站走到B&B很近。從小站到 S.M.N. 的交通也很方便。此外，接待我們的是房東的爸爸，是一位熱情又有耐心的好爸爸。雖然我們彼此語言不通，他會使用Google翻譯為我們介紹關於民宿的一切，真的是很棒的一次住宿體驗！
Barbara's kind Father made us feel very welcome to their apartment. He explained everything, how to use the kitchen for breakfast, the locks and that parking was free and easy outside the block.
Barbara has written laminated guides to help navigate Florence and find your way easily in and out of town. Thank you for having us!
