Rispettare gli spazi comuni, lasciando il bagno pulito !
Great and welcoming host!! Would stay 10/10 times at her lovely place
Paola was such a lovely woman! She allowed us to check in a little earlier than we had agreed upon when we arrived early to Florence. Her rooftop garden was beautiful and blooming. The neighborhood was within walking distance of many of the big sights, but also a little off the main path so you could get a break from the crowds. There were many restaurants and bars nearby. Although, Paola was always home, she always gave us the utmost respect and privacy, but we still had great chats and laughs. She gave us some great restaurant tips, too!
Paola and her home were both very welcoming and made for an excellent pied-à-terre for a short stay in Florence. The apartment is conveniently located within walking distance to very nice restaurants as well as the touristic sights. For future trips to Florence, I would definitely chose to stay with Paola again.
Paola was a wonderful host! She and her husband Claudio made us feel very welcome and right at home. The room was pretty comfortable and most importantly the bathroom was very clean and spacious. We really enjoyed chatting with her family over breakfast, seeing her gorgeous terrace garden and felt a lot more like guests of friends of friends than hotel clients.
The apartment is very well located in that you can walk to all the major tourist sights but you don't have to be among all the tourists. A lot of locals hang out around Piazza Santo Spirito in the evenings and the neighborhood is buzzing, but not crazy.
As long as you don't mind climbing some stairs or a cat, this place comes highly recommended.
Paola's place is wonderful! She does everything she can to make you feel at home in her beautiful apartment filled with art, books, and happy plants of all kinds:)She provided breakfast every morning along with coffee:)And even left me a snack/breakfast bag the night before I was going to leave for a Cinque Terre day hike really early the next morning. And it was also great to meet her husband Claudio, who is also so kind and accommodating. I can't say enough about the warmth and comfort you'll feel staying at Paola's. Our conversations over coffee with her awesome cat Taio (hope I spelled that right) were great too! Thank you so much Paola and Claudio!:)
The location is good, and the bed is comfortable ! By the way Paolo was a very accommodating host!
This was a great location. Close to the train station-15mins and everything you want to see within 20-25mins. Paolowas a great hostess with a smile on her face all the time and Claudio her husband was also very nice. The room and bathroom were very clean, really good hot water and the bed comfortable. It is two blocks away from Santo Spirito where there is nightlife and excellent places to eat. Gusta pizza and Osteria Santo Spirito, yum yum! I felt safe the whole time walking around as a solo female traveler. Paola is kind and gracious hostess who offers a easy breakfast of yogurt, croissant and cafe. I would definitely stay again. The only drawback is you need earplugs because the street is very noisy, I was so tired that I passed out every night no problems.
