Although I did not eventually meet Benedetta, I received very warm help from her sister Beatrice who even wrote me a long list of great restaurant in Florence. The room is very big with a lovely coach where you could have a cup of tea while read a book near window. I will try their camping site in Alps next time!
We really enjoyed our stay at Benedetta's! The room was spacious and very comfortable. It provided a perfect home base for our Florence trip. The location was just outside of the tourist district but close enough for an easy (5min) walk to the heart of the city. The flat is surrounded by plenty of local restaurants and shops - you're never far from a good meal! Thank you for this wonderful weekend getaway!
Benedetta was a very friendly and hospitable host who made our stay in Florence a really enjoyable one, providing us with a city map and recommendations of the sights in Florence. The room and its ancillary facilities were also clean and comfortable, making it a great stay in beautiful Florence.
Benedetta gave us useful information about characteristics of Florence center regions. Before reservation we asked whether the room is quiet during the night. She honestly informed us the apartment is located in a city center, in a quiet street but that windows are on the street and there could be a little bit of rumor especially in the week-end. According to our experience indeed the Via di Mezzo is quit. There are scooters passing from time to time but this is not a connecting road. The room is large room and very close to the Duomo and other monuments of historical Florence. Travelling by car (as we did and not really recommended …), think about free parking sufficiently far from the center (e.g. near the stade) or in the parking at Piazza Cesare Beccaria (20 euro/24h) which is at 15 min walking distance from. Closer parking places are more expensive. We certainly recommend Benedatta’s nice apartment.
Great room and location as advertised.
Benedetta was a warm, knowledgeable and extremely welcoming host. The room is MASSIVE and more than comfortable for the two of us. The apartment is very well situated in the centre of the city and walkable to almost everywhere. Thank you for such a wonderful experience Benedetta!
I really advise anyone wanting to visit Florence to stay at Benedetta's place. The room is huge (even bigger than it looks on the pictures), the bed is super cosy and comfortable, and the apartment couldn't be better located to explore every part of Florence!
very large room, and everything was quite clean. she lives there, so she was available to help us get around every day. Breakfast foods were available, self serve. Room is on the 2nd floor and a bit noisy sometimes for my wife, but I slept fine. if you are a light sleeper, you might take ear plugs
I liked stay in Benedetta home.
The home is great for visit Florence, because is near Duomo!
The bedroom is nice, and clean.
Benedetta was a sympathetic and helpful host!
Great location, walking distance to Duomo. Nice large bedroom in a good neighbourhood would highly recommend.
