  • We had a great stay here. The flat is literally a stone's throw from piazza Santa Croce and close to all of the main sites and is well looked after, clean and comfortable. Paola made sure we were happy and it was an excellent base from which to see all of Florence's magical sites.

  • The location is great. The apartment is best suited for a couple traveling together rather than two friends needing two separate beds. The street noise can be challenging at night. Earplugs are provided.
    Hosts are very flexible and available.

  • Paola's Florence apartment is a lovely city centre base. It is clean and everything works. The kitchen and bathroom are both modern. We did find the apartment very noisy, however Paola has had windows with extra glazing fitted and heavy curtains put up in the bedroom. So although the living room is noisy we did sleep well. We also found the rooms were not as bright as the pictures.

    European city centers are busy, so come here to see all the attractions (this apartment is amazingly close to them all!) however stay outside of the city and pop in if you would like a calm Tuscan break.

  • Our family of 5 had a great experience with this apartment. The host was great and the apartment was all that was promised. The apartment was very conveniently located where there were a lot of restaurants and shops within short walking distance. Definitely a great place to stay on our trip to Italy.

  • We stayed for 2 nights and the location was perfect!
    Grocery store is 2 blocks away, really close, with a good selection of fresh produce, meat and premade dinners (if you don't want to cook)
    The bed was very comfortable and we also tried a pull-out couch in the living room - it was not bad at all. Check in and out was easy. We took a taxi when we arrived to the train station and walked back from the apartment (10 minutes) when we left for Milan. Florence is full of friendly, happy people and we loved every minute of been there.

    Thank you, Paola

  • I might get a very bad review and retaliation from the host for my honest review, but this is from my honest experience, so none will face the same thing like me .

    I didnt met paola from the first and the last day my stay in florence. Before booking this host is very strict with checking in time, 2pm or 3 or after 5/6. But i arrive at 12 with big luggages. So we beg her at least to open the door and let us put our luggage first. She said yes but at 1, so we waited for 1 hour infront of the gate.

    In my humblest opinion, the picture was actually look so much better than the real actual place. But overall it was ok. Its not the best and the nicest service and hospitality in italy. Not much communication during my stay.

    The hot water was put 40degree and she wrote in the guide book very well, we are not allowed to raise or change anything for the water heater. End up, 8 minutes in the shower, it turns ice cold. It was my partner is the one in the bathroom, so i am the one to get scolded and screamed why I didnt book a place properly. And in the book they said in 30 mins it will hot again, but we waited 1hr then 2hr with shampoo in her head, the water is still cold.

    Well the pizza guy which is their friend came after a while, change the temperature to 80 degree than thats it. We didnt have any complain at all after that. The hot water work very well after that, 80 degree is safe to shower for 20 mins.

    Cleanliness is good, bath amenities provided was towel and handsoap. There are earplug given because this place will get really really noisy from the street. Ambulance, dog barking, teenager shouting and cursing.
    The communication is not that good in my experience, but it might be just my luck.

    Response from Paola:

    I am very surprised and disappointed about the review that was left , especially because most of the things said are not true.
    Check-in is scheduled at 3 pm and the guests were warned a few days before that the apartment wasn’t free but it was occupied by other guests so we weren’t able to anticipate this time.
    If and when the apartment is vacant check-in is very very flexible.
    However, we did it possible in terms to bring inside the luggage of the guests as soon as it was free from the guests who had checked out .
    Then about the shower the apartment is equipped with a latest generation boiller with 80 liters of water which is sufficient for normal use of 4 persons.
    At about 7 pm the guests wrote us an email saying that the water was cold so they wanted a refund for the inconvenience , when I received this news , I immediately sent a person to control the problem and just 5 minutes later he was already in the apartment and with very surprise he found the water very hot! Maybe it was an attempt to get a refund at the expense of the owner.
    Regarding the communication, the guests has sent me dozens and dozens of messages at all hours of the morning and night and usually they were repetitive questions ( asked me how to get to the bus station about 4-5 times , if they could buy the tickets directly on the bus, at least 3 times! I have always answered immediately with kindness even if these questions seemed strange and a mockery .
    I advise the guests of Airbnb not consider this review and to read all other reviews.
    Finally I want to thank Anteos and her friend to have left the apartment completely dirty , the bathroom flooded and the garbage all over the sides . This is the cry of the cleaning lady when she opened the door of the apartment , "Oh my God!!!!! What’s happened?????? "

  • Great room! It is comfortable, clean, and extremely well located for getting around Florence by foot. Highly recommended!

  • Well located and a good base to explore and enjoy Florence - within close walking distance of the main centre. Paola was very caring and attentive during our stay. Thank you!

  • Paola was a fantastic host and very responsive to our needs. The location of the apartment was perfect and the apartment was very clean. We would recommend the apartment to any one who wants to be in the middle of Florence. Great shopping too! Great job Paola!

  • Pros
    Paola and her family were extremely sweet. We had heavy baggage with us and Paola along with her husband (even though he had one hand in a cast!) helped us carry our bags up to the apartment.
    The room was clean with adequate heating and all other necessities were provided.
    The location is great for exploring the city in the day but fantastic for the nightlife!

    Cons
    None!

    Definitely recommend this apartment! great value for money and Paola is an extremely nice person :)
