I enjoy meeting people from different cultures ...also I am a very open and hospitable person!
We hope that everyone who stays with as leaves happy and with good memories: in fact nearly everyone returns a second time...
Rispettare gli spazi comuni, lasciando il bagno pulito !
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.
Ottima accoglienza e disponibilità,casa veramente pulita e particolare che rispetta le caratteristiche dei due proprietari,sempre pronti a consigliare luoghi e locali non prettamente turistici.
Seguono alla lettera il detto "vivi e lascia vivere" (entro i limiti del rispetto e dell'educazione)
Consigliata a tutti!!
My stay with Paola's was alright. The place was about 15 mins walk away from the train station and most of spots. So if you travel light, it could be an option. The room was clean but sort of worn-out. I checked in very late evening since Paola told me earlier that she might be able to get back to town that day. I didn't get chance to meet her when I checked out in the morning, so Paola charged me additional US$10 when I went back to grab my bags, which was fine but not very pleasant.
Mile grazie Paola and Claudio for having me in their lovely Florence home. They were warm, welcoming hosts who are very attuned to what makes guests feel at home. Everything was clean and well cared for. When I return to Florence, I'll be sure to look you them again.
если вы хотите почувствовать и увидеть настоящую флорентийскую жизнь, то надо жить в итальянской семье ! никакая гостиница не сравнится с шикарной флорентийской квартирой в старинном доме, поэтому рекомендую остановиться жить у Паолы в ее семье. семья очень дружелюбная и приветливая.
I visited Florence in early October and stayed at with Paola's home for 5 nights. Paola's a kind and energetic host. She was very responsive to my questions before I arrived. Her home is located perfectly at the outskirt of the old town, not as busy as the centre but is easy to get to all major attractions by foot. There are many nice restaraunts in the Saint Spirito Square that you can explore the Florentine cuisine. Highly recommend Paola's place for solo travellers or couples
