Absolutely fabulous. A wonderful gallery art perfectly place in the pedestrian zone of Firenze. We absolutely enjoyed our stay. Roberto is really kind and we enjoyed talking with him, mixing up French, English and a couple words of Italian. Perfect !
I booked this apartment for my son and his girlfriend. Both were super impressed with it. Roberto was a great host. Many thanks Roberto for making their holiday very enjoyable. Hope some day to have the opportunity to visit myself.
Roberto's loft was quite spectacular. It was a special experience staying there. Roberto was helpful and kind. The place was within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. It was great to be able to turn the heating on and off as desired as it was Winter time when we stayed there and it got quite cold at times! The shower was magnificent as it had a heater in the actual shower...brillaint idea! Roberto recommended a great restaurant to us and we ate there twice. We loved the atmosphere in the area and had a really nice time in Roberto's flat. Thanks!
Esperienza fantastica.....super in tutto, posizione (piazza della signoria) comodità e non per ultimo piccola galleria d arte di un grande Artista.
Io, mio marito e 2 amiche svizzere abbiamo trascorso 5 giorni a Firenze per lavoro e abbiamo trovato la casa di Roberto impeccabile sotto tanti punti di vista.
Innanzitutto Roberto e' stato molto disponibile e gentile, la casa e' decisamente molto bella e in una posizione perfetta.
Esperienza da ripetere sicuramente.

appartement magnifique, très bien situé... Visitez Florence dans ces conditions est extraordinaire. Et puis Roberto est un hôte charmant et très attentionné.
Franchement, loger dans une gallerie d'art à 2 minutes à pied de SANTA CROCE, que demander de plus !
This is not your typical accommodation. This is an experience! You get the opportunity to live with the art of a true Italian artist. Roberto is very nice and clearly very talented. This loft is very spacious and in a good neighborhood. The bathroom is a bit small and the water temperature fluctuates. Wifi was great! We would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Florence. It is a wonderful spot! Roberto even booked us a taxi for our EARLY morning departure. Roberto is the best!
Roberto's home is stunning in that it's more than a home, it's an art gallery that displays a variety of his work. My wife and I felt privileged to spend time in such a creative atmosphere. The flat is perfectly located in the heart of Florence. A few blocks from Piazza Santa Croce in one direction and Piazza della Signoria, home of Palazzo Vecchio and the Ufizzi. The Duomo and Ponte Vecchio are only a few minutes further, and the Pitti Palace is about a 15 minute walk. The flat is on the ground floor right on the street, but it's a side street and the bedroom is in the back, so it was very quiet for a good night's sleep. Roberto was there to greet us despite us being 30 minutes late thanks to driving around looking for the rental car return at the Florence airport (very hard to find -- even after stopping for directions!) before grabbing a cab to the flat. Roberto is a gracious host who is very proud of Florence and it's historical significance. We spent about 45 minutes chatting with him about his artwork and Florence in general before he head left to catch a train to Paris for the weekend. Florence is a must-visit location, and I can't believe there is a better place to stay for those who are looking for an apartment experience vs. B&B or hotel. Roberto's home is absolutely perfect. He even greeted us with organic apples and organic wine! We look forward to returning to Florence in the future and highly recommend staying at Roberto's artistic flat.
The place was really nice, the welcoming was on time, sympathic, short and sweet. The location couldn't be more perfect. The appartment is clean and full of piece of arts! :)
This is in an ideal location. The apartment itself is absolutely beautiful, and huge! If I could have brought it home, we''d had offered to buy some of his amazing art! Much, much bigger than we expected. Roberto was so accommodating to our situation (coming into town very early) and was so communicative. If you don't book this place for Florence you are making a mistake! The only thing we regret is not staying longer. Next time we are there we will absolutely be staying here again if possible.
