Host gentilissima; posizione e descrizione dell'appartamento perfetti. Ottime indicazioni per arrivare a destinazione senza perdersi.
Ulrika was a wonderful host! Great communication, and the guide to Florence she sent before our trip was very helpful. The apartment is in a great location - walking distance to all the main attractions, but in a quiet residential spot. Highly recommend staying here when in Florence.
Ulrika was an extremely attentive, helpful host. She went above & beyond to make our stay stress free & comfortable. The apartment is spacious, clean, beautifully decorated & well equipped. Great location, quiet yet very accessible. The sun terrace & wifi were welcome extras.
This apartment is absolutely beautiful, with high ceilings and quality furnishings, and in a great location. It is a bit of a walk to most of the major sights, but the walk takes you through a fascating part of the city and it is quite lovely. Ulrika was delightful and very helpful. It was great to have a secure parking space (for an extra fee).
Ulrika is very nice person. She sent us an email with the instructions to checking in, and also with all the things that one can do in Florence.
The apartment is in a great location and it is clean and comfortable.
Thank you Ulrika for everything, and see you next time!!!
