We went to Sharon and Rossana's office where we got the keys to the apartment which was around the corner on next street. Rossana gave us a rundown on sights to see and places to go in Florence which turned out to be very useful. It was located near the places we wanted to visit.
Rossana warned us that there was going to be construction noise at the apartment because of the remodeling of the apartment on the floor below. Sure enough, they started jack hammering the walls at 8:30 in the morning.... shaking up our beds. This went on for the three days we were stayed there. However, we were more interested in seeing the sights so we would leave half an hour after the noise started.
The apartment was as shown in the pictures. However, the apartment had many little problems like leaky pipes under the lavatory, stove missing one leg, non-working stove lighter, and TV remote with corroded batteries that they fixed. Being a handyman, I was able make temporary fixes that made the problems a non-issue.
My suggestion to AirBnb guests is not to let the owner or representative just hand you the keys without giving you an orientation of the place. Private homes/apt have peculiarities. Some European appliances work differently than those in the US. Some have switches located away from the machine. Thermostats operate differently. I am a Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning engineer and still it took me a while to figure out how their thermostat worked. Unless you have a European Cell Phone, it will be difficult to communicate with the owner if there is a problem..... and they may not speak English.
Great place right in the center of Florence. Very close to both the train and bus station. It was quiet and very comfortable. The only issue was the shower being slow to drain. Probably a common issue in the old buildings. Thank you Rossana for all the fantastic recommendations!
We enjoyed our stay in Florence. Sharon and Rossana were very friendly and helpful. The apartment met all our needs for our four night stay.
Great place to stay in the heart of Florence. Quiet at night time, comfy bed, good amenities that we were in much need of. Rossana was a wonderful host with a good sense of humour. Bring repellent for those Florentine mosquitoes.
We have mixed feelings about this accommodation. It was not what we expected and was not really what we would call clean. I may have selected poorly with regards to the facilities but feel this was due to the misleading or "stretched" description.
Our group was a couple and two singles. I selected this place because it was listed as a 2 bedroom apartment and was price accordingly (when compared to 1 bedroom apartments that slept 4 or other 2 bedroom apartments). With 4 of us, we decided a two bedroom place would be better for space and privacy. On arrival we realised that it was really a 2 room apartment (I would say a 1 bedroom with a sitting room that could sleep two singles if required ie great for Children). However to get to the bedroom or the bathroom you had to walk through the "second bedroom". You can close the doors and thus make the rooms both private as long as you don't need the bathroom or kitchen.
The kitchen should be described as a kitchenette. It has most of the cooking utensils you'll need, but no stove, just two independent gas hotplates and there is not much room to cook.
We had a problem with the floor not being clean. It looked clean but as soon as our shoes were off we realised how dirty it was. Our feet were almost black after walking around and we needed to wash them before getting into bed. The dust & dirt under the beds was unacceptable and left all our suitcases dirty. I must say, everything above the floor was spotlessly clean. The linen great, towels white and soft and the reviews all say it was clean. But for us, the state of the floor made it hard to accept that the place was clean.
On a more positive note, you cannot fault the location. Rossana was friendly and helpful checking us in giving us great directions and a fantastic restaurant recommendation.
We spoke with Rossana and explained that we felt the description was a bit stretched and she suggested that perhaps a layout/plan would help in future. We all agreed.
This place would be good for a couple. But not suitable for four and thus not suitable for us.
Sharon and her Mom are amazing! They gave us so many great recommendations and circled where they were on a map that they provided for us. The apartment was clean and as described. Thank you!
Fantastic help all around. She organized a pickup at the airport and was extremely welcoming. Lovely balcony and a very central location with easy access to the city center in one direction and the train station in the other. Would stay there again
Nice flat in the centre of Florence located in approx. 5 min walking distance from the train station. Very friendly service. Everythying was perfect and clean! Thank you!
Sharon is a very nice and helpful host. Everything concerning the disposal (apartment and key) was perfect. The apartement is exactely as shown as in the pictures and everything in the city is in walking distance.
I definitely would recommend Sharon as the host and the apartement! Thank you Sharon!
Sharon fue muy buena anfitriona. Nos recibió para el check in y nos dio todas las indicaciones sobre el apartamento como asi también donde ir a comer y pasear en Florencia. El apartamento era muy comodo, amplio y confortable. Lo pasamos genial, es super recomendable
