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
come lo si trova...
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
Paola was a very accommodating and friendly host, providing breakfast every morning and some useful Florence tips. The apartment is located in a really nice neighbourhood and is spotlessly clean. I would stay again!
Paola is a very pleasent, welcoming host. The room and the appartment are lovely and very clean. Just mind the weight of your luggage, there are quite some steps to climb ;-) But you will be rewarded. The location is perfect, 10 min walk to the Ufici and a lot of nice Bars and Restaurants around. You might want to bring earplugs though if you are coming over the weekend. Or just stay out and very easily get to know the locals at Plaza Santo Spirito!
I had a great time at Paola and Claudio's apartment. The room is large and clean. There is a beautiful rooftop terrace. Everything is as advertised. There are two main reasons why you should stay here: The hosts are incredibly friendly and welcoming. Paola will make you feel at home (even if you don't speak italian well :) ) and you will get an experience that you cannot get at a hotel. Also, the apartment is in a perfect location, just up the street from the trendy Piazza Santo Spirito. This is a place where locals hang out. If you want a more realistic Florence experience, stay here and not in the more touristy areas!
