Het verblijf was centraal gelegen en het appartement was schoon en netjes. Een prima kamer voor een prima prijs.
Silvia was not in her flat during my stay instead of her friend received me and She was very friendly and helpful, she showed me all the flat, my room and gave me a very useful map. The flat has a nice location only a 20 minutes walk to the center. All in all a really nice experience and I would recommend this place to others.

All in all a really nice experience and I would recommend this place to others :)
Sylvia was wonderful. She met us at the door and the room was as described. We were close to many things - great location. We arrived late and had to leave early the next morning, but she still gave us a map and told us a few things to try to see that evening in the short time we were going to be there. I think she really helped us to make the best of our time in Florence. She also called a taxi for us for the next morning and it was there on time to take us to the train station. I really appreciate everything she did for us.
Clean room and bathroom. Silvia was very nice, she offered to explain everything about the town. Everything was in good condition despite cheap price. Though I might have to point out that its not a walking distance to/from SM Novella if you have luggage. Also there were too many mosquitoes in the room.
The apartment is well connected from the central train station getting the bus 14 how explained on my welcome letter that I always send to my guests after getting the reservation. The distance is short getting the bus and I always suggest to get it..
The bedroom is equipped with the net on the window and the repellent. Maybe you didn't use it..
L'accueil de Silvia a été très bon. Elle a été très flexible par rapport à notre horaire d'arrivée. Elle nous a mises à l'aise rapidement et nous a indiqué toutes ses bonnes adresses.
L'appartement est très bien situé (15 minutes à pied du centre et 30 minutes de la gare, 15 minutes en bus).
La chambre donne sur la rue et est en rez de chaussée donc cela peut paraître bruyant pour les personnes non habituées.
Il faut cependant partager une petite salle de bain (toilettes non séparés) avec les hôtes de autre chambre mais nous n'avons pas eu de soucis. Mais tout est propre (salle de bain nettoyée tous les jours).
