Roberto's space is well located, and it's easy to get anywhere in Florence by foot from the apartment. The wifi is super fast; there's a great laundromat around the corner; and you are steps away from amazing food.
Location was fabulous, with everything within walking distance. Comfortably furnished with interesting decor. Kitchen was well equipped, and the art really added a classy touch to the place. The limited natural light from the two small windows was compensated for by plenty of interior lighting. Roberto was very welcoming, we very much enjoyed our stay in Florence!
Roberto was a wonderful host. His property was a gallery before he convert it into a art feel home stay. It is with lots of characteristic and well located too. So convenient to go around the scenes of Florence. The neighborhood is interesting. Three nights stay is just not enough.
Appartement incroyable, une vrai galerie d'art en plein centre de Florence. L'appartement est sans fenêtre mais sa fraîcheur est très appréciable avec la chaleur qu'il règne à Florence. Roberto est un hôte attentif et prévenant, présent à notre arrivée et à notre départ.
Nous recommandons vivement. Merci Roberto pour votre accueil.
Lovely apartment a bit different from the norm in brilliant location close to everything - all walkable! Slept really well, no street noise audible from back bedroom. Fab coffee shop Ditta Artigianale just at end of street and the best sandwich shop in the next road but be prepared to queue. Would definitely recommend.
