Silvia's room was great ! She gave us tons of good info to visit the city and eat in nice restaurants. Her place is very tidy and conveniently located in Florence. The room was a bit noisy but after a day walking in Florence we had no trouble to fall asleep !
Silvia is a great hostess. Everything is true as described. It was a very familiar atmosphere also with the other guests.
I was happy to be there. Brava Silvia!!!!!
Silvia fue una excelente anfitrión. Nos dio las mejores indicaciones para llegar a la casa y también recomendaciones muy útiles para nuestra estadía, que si bien fue corta, gracias a sus indicaciones la aprovechamos al máximo!.
La casa es tal cual se ve en las fotos, cómoda, limpia y con todo lo necesario para una estadía.
Su ubicación es muy buena y Silvia una gran anfitriona por lo cual la recomendamos.
Gracias Silvia! Esperamos poder volver con mas tiempo la próxima vez. :)
Silvia was very eager to help us have the best possible experience in Rome. The room was very nice with a great bed. Silvia have us great directions on how to take the bus to her place from the train station (I recommend the bus, it's 2 euro when you buy on the bus and a walk is just a little too far with big bags). Great room. Nice bed. Great host.
We loved our stay with Silvia. She was extremely well organised, gave us easily to follow directions to her home and information about the area on arrival. The room was cosy and bathroom and kitchen were very clean. It is in an excellent location - a big supermarket just up the road and a nice 15-20 minute stroll into the main tourist area. I would highly recommend stayin with Silvia!!
