Silva's apartment is cozy and clean, a good location and she provided us with tour guide as well
Silvia fue muy amable y atenta. el departamento es muy bonito, y esta a 10 mts en bus del centro. El barrio es muy tranquilo. lo recomendamos sin dudar!!
Silvia es la mejor host, me dio indicaciones para moverme por Florencia! Las indicaciones que me dio para llegar a su casa fueron perfectas, llegue sin ningún problema. La casa es muy limpia, el cuarto es muy cómodo y la ubicación de la casa es perfecta, de hay se puede llegar caminando a todas partes. Silvia gracias por todo :)
The apartment was really clean, and the bathroom was brand new which was wonderful. It's in a wonderful location; we could walk everywhere. Be sure to eat at some of the places Silvia recommends because everywhere we ate on her recommendation was delicious!
Ottima accoglienza da parte di Silvia, disponibile a darmi informazioni sulla città e a farmi lasciare il mio bagaglio nel suo appartamento anche il giorno seguente. Educata e gentile, mi sono sentita davvero a mio agio a casa sua. Camera da letto con letto matrimoniale (nonostante avessi prenotato per la camera più piccola), pulita e arredamento grazioso. Per quanto mi riguarda posizione perfetta, 10 minuti a piedi da Santa Croce.
E' stata la mia prima esperienza airbnb e mi sono trovata benissimo. Quando in primavera tornerò a Firenze, sicuramente la contatterò !
Nice lovely house and Silvia :)
Not far from the city center and quite near the river. I really enjoyed taking a walk every morning along the river.
Lastly, a great choice for my staying at Florence.
