Roberto was a friendly and helpful host. Before arriving he always answered our questions within short periods. In Florence he welcomed us to his loft, showed us everything and asked us to contact him whenever we need something. The loft itself is beautiful, filled with art pieces done by himself. The loft and bathroom were clean and spacious, the bed comfortable and the kitchen well equipped (we didn't use it, but noticed that oil, salt, pepper and other basics were at guest disposal). The only thing which bothered us a bit was the missing natural light. The loft has two windows, but in comparison to the loft they are quite small and do not bring in much natural light. As we mostly spend our time outside, this factor was ok for three nights. Thank you Roberto for the comfortable stay!
Wow- what a stunning apartment! Really spacious and very clean. The apartment is perfectly central, and there are a lot of good bars and restaurants nearby. We loved the art in the apartment and it felt really special.
Roberto was very easy to deal with and the apartment was clean and exactly what the pictures described. Great location.
Roberto's place was in a perfect location in Firenze. We had a great time seeing the city and Roberto was very helpful and responsive to our needs. It was nice to have our own place with laundry washer right in the heart of the city.
Our night in Firenze was perfect. The location of the apartment is the best point. The apartment is really spacious and original in its artistic spirit. We had a nice stay, would come back! Thanks you Roberto for your hospitality and your advices.
Very helpful and very nice host. The house is so beautiful and very strategic place. Definitely is a very value place to stay
The apt gives an excellent chance to explore Florence as a city as well as gives you the cultural experience, being the gallery/studio of a local artist and sculptor. The only thing it lacks and which would be a problem for me if i stayed longer than 2 nights - the windows. It lacks the natural light and fresh air. Special thanks to Roberto as a host! He was kind enough to advise us a good parking place, picked us up to take to the apt and all the way back upon the check out! Grazie mille, Roberto, sei proprio gentile!
