This was my first Airbnb experience and it was a very positive one. Francesco was a great host and made sure that we had everything we needed. Prior to arriving he checked in to find out if we needed transportation from the airport. We were greeted by a driver that he arranged and then once we got to the apartment we were greeted by someone who immediately oriented us to the apartment and surrounding area. We found the Toscanella apartment to be exactly as described and pictured. It was a beautiful flat and very spacious for our group of six family members. If we had any questions during our stay we were directed to contact Elenora, who was very responsive and helpful. The location was excellent with everything we needed close by and convenient for walking. We appreciated all of the suggestions for tours, restaurants, stores, etc. It was all very organized and we would definitely welcome the opportunity to stay at Francesco's flat again in the future.
We did a trip a trip for 3 weeks traveling through Croatia and Italy, and I have to say that this Florence apartment was the most spacious and beautiful apartment we stayed in. And the location was awesome. Right next to the Pitti Palace off a little piazza with one of the best trattorias AND one of the best gelato places in town. Great place. I'd recommend it to anyone. And Miss Eleonora who helps manage the place was extremely nice and helpful.
La casa es tal y como aparece en las fotografías. Muy agradable y muy cerca del centro de la ciudad. Situada en un barrio tranquilo y a 3 minutos andando del ponte veccio. Muy cómoda para desplazarse andando por la ciudad. Sin duda una muy buena opción que tener en cuenta si se van a pasar unos días a Florencia.
We couldn't have made a better choice. Francesco's apartment is within walking distance to everywhere! And it was very well-equipped and spacious.
Eleonora was great and so welcoming. She took us through the entire apartment and gave us excellent recommendations for dining, particularly those in the Piazza Santo Spirito.
We highly recommend Francesco's apartment.
El apartamento de Francesco es excelente para una estadía en Florencia. Está muy bien ubicado, cerca de la estación de trenes, está renovado, cómodo, amplio, agradable. Cerca hay buenos restaurantes, particularmente 4 Leoni y Il Brindellone. Queda muy cerca de los lugares turísticos más importantes de Florencia (no mas de 20 minutos a pie). Lo recomiendo a ojo cerrado.
Loved this apartment! Beautiful, spacious, clean, everything you might need is available and the management sweet lady, Eleanor, was helpful, funny and very informative. My husband and I and our four daughters were very comfortable, felt safe and loved the closeness in proximity to the sights. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Francesco's apartment is beautiful, spacious, and very clean. There were tons of amenities (lots of towels, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, tea, coffee, extra toilet paper, 3 sets of keys etc.) that helped us feel right at home.
Despite Italy's bizarre restrictions on heating in private apartments (max 9 hours per day, max 20 degrees Celsius), Francesco was incredibly accommodating when we wanted to have the heating timer changed so that we had heating during the night. His girlfriend came over right away to change the timer and the apartment was nice and cozy while we were sleeping.
The check-in was very easy--Eleonora met us at the apartment and showed us where everything was. She also responded to emails right away whenever we had any questions. Checking out is also very easy--we could just leave the keys in the apartment and leave. Unfortunately, when we were checking out, we left a bag in the apartment and locked ourselves out. We called Eleonora and she had the housekeeper come right away and open the door for us. We are so appreciative of this!! Not to mention, we broke a lamp in the apartment and Francesco was very nice about it and let us know right away how much it cost for the replacement.
We feel like we were terrible guests, but Francesco and Eleonora could not have been nicer. We highly recommend this apartment! It is especially great for bigger groups (we were five) since its very spacious and there are three sets of keys! We would love to stay here again on our next trip to Florence!
