Very convenient walking location - very fast to get everywhere in Florence: Across the river and up the hill to Piazzale Michalangelo, down the street to the Ponte Vecchio, or a 10 minute walk to wake up early and see 'David' on display before the crowds get there.
Alessandro was a very gracious host - the right blend of welcoming you and explaining the layout of the city while also not hovering and constantly intruding on your vacation. Very good communication, fast responsiveness, let me keep my bags there for an extra several hours when I was wandering the city waiting for a train.
Excellent accueil de notre hôte, qui a pris le temps de bavarder pour nous donner des bons plans pour nos quelques jours à Florence, le tout avec une très bonne humeur. De plus, notre avion avait du retard mais il a tout de même tenu à nous accueillir.
Alessandro's apartment was in a great location, walking distance to the center of Florence but far enough away to feel like you are out of the tourist area and in a neighborhood. The apartment is small but charming, Alessandro was a great host, meeting us and giving us all kinds of information on the neighborhood, the markets and where to eat. All in all very nice!
Very welcoming introduction from Alessandro. Very helpful and interesting. Very supportive throughout the week! Lovely little flat, in a really nice part of the city. Great restaurants and bars nearby. Everywhere easy to walk to! Great week!
Alessandro was waiting outside the apartment to greet us and help us with our bags. He was friendly and enthusiastic and we both thought what a nice person he was. He gave us tips on where in the area to buy things we might need and explained clearly how everything in the flat worked. He was at pains to assure us that we could call him at any time we needed, even for trivial things, and he sent a text later during our stay just to make sure all was well.
Not only was the place clean and tidy, with everything working properly, but it had a good feel to it, just as it had appeared from the description when we booked. I knew the location Via Ghibellina already but in the many years since my last visit to Florence I'd forgotten just how lovely the little streets of the centro storico are and how easy it is to walk everywhere.
This was our first time using Airbnb and Alessandro and Azadeh made it an excellent one! We'll be using it again no doubt and would happily book with our hosts again.
The apartment was beautiful and located in an excellent area - convenient to major sites with plenty of restaurants and essentials close by. Alessandro was a pleasure and was at the apartment waiting to show us around the apartment and to provide us with useful information and tips. The apartment was well furnished with all the amenities, plus extra towels, blankets, etc. Would absolutely stay there in the future!
Alessandro was very helpful upon our arrival and ended up giving us some great tips on attractions in Florence and the surrounding area. He also gave us some insider info on a great local wine bar and the best pizza we had during our trip in Italy. Ask him about those spots!
The location was great/central and the apartment was perfect for what we needed. We walked pretty much everywhere in Florence and it only took us 15-20 min to walk to the Duomo, restaurants, and the main train station. I'll definitely try to stay with Alessandro if/when I make it back to Florence. Thanks Alessandro!

Siamo una coppia che vive a Firenze. Alessandro è esperto di catering ed Azadeh di compagnie aeree. Dopo i primi viaggi fra Italia e Svezia abbiamo visitato vari paesi di Europa.
Ogni straniero che arriva in italia ed è il nostro ospite, non è un turista per noi, ma un viaggiatore con un nome, una persona che poi dovrà ritornare a casa sua dove lo aspettano parenti e amici che vorranno sapere del suo viaggio. Speriamo che la nostra casa sia una parte piacevole di questo loro futuro racconto.
