Florence was great. The apartment was clean and very comfortable. The location was great and not near the tourist section of Florence, but was a quick walk there. There was a ton of local shops an restaurants nearby to sample the local cuisine. The wifi was a little difficult at times and a little slow for 4 people, but overall it was a great experience. I would recommend this apartment.
We felt very comfortable and welcomed upon our arrival. The discripting was correct, the location was perfect for us, although it can get a little noisy late at night due to the restaurant down stairs.
Wifi was good, beds were comfortable bathroom a little small, washing machine very helpful overall we really enjoyed our stay.
Emiliano and Giacomo's mama was very helpful, guiding us to the best places in Firenze for a fast 2 days trip. The place is so cozy and italian, everything working well, nothing to debunk. The right place for a new trip to Toscana.
This place is great, we were well looked after by friend of the house - Jinky, and appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine.
There are a lot of good restaurants around this area, all walking distance away.
What a fantastic apartment....We were met by Marina who showed us round and gave us all the local info and directed us to her restaurant 'Vivanda' where we went for a lovely lunch ((website hidden)) Our host also gave us great tips for other local restaurants and great coffee. The apartment is bright and welcoming and very comfortable and reasonably priced. The location was excellent as only about 15 mins walk to the Duomo. It was a lovely touch to be able to purchase and drink their own organic wine made available in the kitchen. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Florence.
Excellent location, not too far from the train station, and just across the river from the heart of Florence. Very comfortable and very roomy. The square below is a parking lot, with a new restaurant, and very noisy on weekend nights. Landlord was very helpful with suggestions for good places to dine and buy groceries.

Ciao a tutti!
Sono Emiliano e abito a Firenze, città che non vedo l´ora di mostrarvi.
Adoro cucinare e leggere. Sono una persona estroversa che adora fare nuove (website hidden) e mio fratello Giacomo affittiamo le nostre stanze quando non siamo a Firenze perchè tutti e due studiamo all'estero. Dato che la nonna non e' esperta di informatica le diamo una mano gestendo anche il suo appartamento.
Quando noi non ci siamo mia mamma vi darà il benvenuto!
Che altro dirvi.. vi aspetto a Firenze! :)
