One bathroom is at the level of the living room, and another one on the mezzanine, both with shower. Modern decor, Internet Wi-Fi, washing machine, iron, dish washer, hairdryer. Due to the presence of the staircase, the apartment is not safe for young children. In July and August apartment is arranged for maximum two people, supposed to sleep in a double bed in part of the wide living room: this, because there is no air conditioning in the mezzanine.

It's my first airbnb experience and my friends and I really enjoyed the apartment. It's very modern and clean. The wooden blinds facing outside can completely block out the natural light, so it's really easy to sleep into the morning. The location is great! Only a few minutes walk to the Duomo. There are also some markets and good restaurants nearby.
Enrico was very responsive over email and phone. He also provided some drinks, bread and pasta. Would recommend staying here!
Enrico was a fantastic host, meeting us personally, helping us to find a good restaurant, and graciously accommodating our changing travel plans. His apartment is in a great location, has loads of useful local information and was a wonderful plave to unwind and relax given our hectic schedule. My wife left a pair of ear rings in the apartmet when we left, and Enrico went above and beyond to get them back to her - a wonderful host in a wonderful apartment - we will definitely be returning - mille grazie Enrico !
Enrico was wonderful. Great Host! He even included drinks in the fridge and misc stuff around the counter. The location of the apartment was great. You can see the Duomo outside of the apartment. The glass stairs were a little scary but after awhile you just get use to it.
A fantastic stay. A wonderfully modern, bright and characterful apartment in a fabulous and convenient location for exploring Florence with a very welcoming and friendly host. Perfect for adults; possibly not for children due to the layout. Very grateful for such a happy stay and would fully recommend a trip to Florence, staying in Enrico's truly lovely loft apartment. Grazie, Enrico...we loved it. Jackie and Margot x
When we arrived at his flat, we just said " Wow". It was awesome.
Very modern and clean condition. Everthing is there for us.
Also, Enrico so kindly prepared bread, water, coffee, etc. for us.
Although, I requested to bedding set quite late time, he came to house imme, and gave it to us.
If there are someone looking for the best place in Florence, I will highly recommed Enrico's flat.
Enrico~ We really appreciate of your huge support and consideration indeed.
Enrico's apartment is a an excellent place to stay. The apartment is in a very good location, easy walking distance to the main attractions. It is spacious, and has good natural light. The kitchen is highly functional, and well set up if you prefer to dine at home. It has a good heating system, which we needed during our stay. Enrico left a welcome pack of breakfast basics, milk, tea, coffee and a bottle of wine, which we greatly appreciated. We hope to return next year.
