As the other comments mention, Modestino is a good host in the sense that he left us restaurant recommendations in the area and good discounts. We had trouble finding the location and getting in touch with him at the beginning, which was very frustrating without wifi or working phones. But, he was very accommodating and generous with our luggage after check-out (we left our bags there all day as we explored Florence). The apartment is one room, in a good location and is very old and could use some work. As others have mentioned, the linens are lacking. We felt the price is way too high for what it is. The air conditioning was a perk, as there were many mosquitos with the windows open.
Modi's apartment is centrally located and extremely comfortable. We were within walking distance from the bus stop as well as many bars and restaurants that are frequented by locals, hence we managed to escape the touristy stuff. The house is equipped with an effective air conditioner and the shower separated from the WC is ideal for two people travelling together.
Modi welcomed us at the apartment himself and gave us excellent recommendations of what to do in Florence. The itinerary listed on his page is perfect. Would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a true flavor of Florence.
The stay at Modestino's was great! It was across the river from the main tourist attractions, which was a nice break from the hustle and bustle. There were tons of great local places all around the apartment to eat and drink. There was one small problem (the shower drain was pretty clogged) but as soon as I told Modestino about it he came by and fixed it. Other than that everything was perfect.
L'appartement de modestino est très bien placé dans le centre : a 2 pas d'une place avec des restaurants et a 5 minutes a pied des monuments du centre historique. L'appartement est simple mais dispose de tout le nécessaire pour 2 personnes. Modestino nous a donné de très bonnes adresses pour dîner. Merci pour son accueil chaleureux. Il est disponible à n'importe quelle heure pour vous aider et répondre à vos interrogations. Nous espérons revenir vite a Florence et y séjourner à nouveau.
Stayed for two nights in this apartment. Modestino was an absolutely fantastic host, showing us all of the most amazing places to eat close to the apartment. He was very friendly and extremely helpful. The apartment was very clean and perfect for a stay in Florence. I cannot say enough good things!
The location was great! Very close to all the sites. The aparent was very convenient. And Modestino was a great host, giving advice on places to eat.
We were a little disappointed with with the quality of mattress, it was pretty cheap and not comfortable for my wife and I. And the shower drain was super slow, we couldn't have the shower on for more than a few minutes before it would fill up the base; thus showers were super short.
But all in all the apartment worked well for us for our short stay!
Modi was very welcoming and gave us lots of great tips on where to eat. The location is very central and great for walking. The apartment is very small and rustic as per it's age. The linens are lacking.
