Ulrika and her husband were amazing hosts! their apartment was very clean and had everything we could possibly need - two bathrooms were great!! Location was amazing and parking spot below the windows was invaluabld! We would love to be back! Thank you!
Great house! Everything nice and fresh! Really Good location with 10-15 minutes to the historical area by walk.
Ulrika was really nice and helpful.
A nice terass if you want to relax.
The only feedback is that the wi-fi had a little bit bad connection in the room, but if you sat in the reception/familly room the wi-fi was Perfectionist!
I would definitly recommend Ulrika and would stay there next time im in Florence!
El apartamento es tal cual las fotografías y la descripción. Está muy bien ubicado, cerca, a unos pasos del City sightseeing, hay restaurantes muy buenos alrededor, mercados para compras de alimentos, el apartamento muy limpio y está como nuevo. El ascensor nuevo, Ulrika nos dio las indicaciones para podernos mover en Florencia muy bien. Nos permitió guardar las maletas hasta la hora necesaria para salir de viaje, definitivamente volveríamos allí al regresar a Florencia.
Our experience here was fantastic. About a 10-15 minute walk from the heart of Florence, and the apartment itself is lovely. Ulrika is an awesome host who gives you tons of great suggestions and is very reachable. Definitely would recommend.
The stay in Florence was magical.
It's a small town, everything can be done on foot. The apartment is well located , very clean and relaxing .
Our host was very welcoming , smiling and helpful.
Thank you for everything Ulrika ' lodges !!
The apartment was just as listed. It was clean, comfortable and located close to buses. She provided valuable information via email about restaurants and especially recommended the Firenze card. It gave us free bus transportation and preferred entrance to the sites. It saved us many hours of wait time.
Notre hôte était très agréable, à l'écoute et disponible au téléphone pour nous renseigner pour le moindre problème.
