We enjoyed our week at Alessandra’s apartment. The apartment is spacious and clean, with a full kitchen and a beautiful private courtyard. The neighborhood is relatively free from tourist traffic and has plenty of good restaurants and shops. Alessandra was kind enough to recommend some of her favorite spots, and she was accessible throughout our stay. It was a great first experience with Airbnb.
We really enjoyed staying in Alessandra's lovely apartment with a very comfortable bed!. Great location with a lovely courtyard and lots of plants. That was very special. It was also very quiet. Lots of great places to eat nearby as well. If you are doing any cooking (or even just eating in the apartment), be sure to visit the Mercato Centrale (Central Market) which is walking distance from the apartment to stock up on goodies to eat! Amazing!!!
If ever we are back in Florence we will certainly stay there again.

We had a great stay in Alessandra's apartment. The location is great - away from all the tourists. It allows you to have a real Florence experience and become a local at many wonderful shops, wine bars, and places to eat. You are a quick walk across the river to the spots you should see while there, and then when done, you cross the river and get away from it all. The apartment is very quiet. And we felt very safe in this area. The streets are very well lit. Alessandra gave us a private yoga lesson - which was the perfect way to start the trip.
Recommendations close by: Tamero and Il Santo Bevitore for dinner. There is a small wine bar near the Plaza Santo Spirito called the Half Litre which had very good, unique wines from the region.
Bam!!! This cozy appartment with the full of flowers backyard is directly in the city. You need only five minutes per feet to the garden of boboli, or to ponte vecchio.
The bed and the kitchen are comfprtable and you can spend a breakfast on the the terrace. At the morning it will comes a pleasure sun light though the window, so you are happy to stand up. The host are very friendly and flexible.
It was a wonderfull vacantion and if i will come back, i would use these offer again.
We had an excellent time at this space. We had room to spread out and a wonderful garden to enjoy our wine in the morning. The pictures are accurate and our host left us some helpful hints on fishing our way around the neighbourhood. Lovely stay especially because it was a yoga studio and we are both yoga teachers! Very calm and peaceful
Very nice host and good location with a nearby supermarket, small boutiques and restaurants. A few minutes (walking) away from the city centre and therefore not crowded with tourists. Also a beautiful interior to feel comfortable.
We had a wonderful time at Alessandra's place! It's nice and cool in this warm summer, it's quite big and has a nice garden to relax. It's located near the beautiful Santo Spirito, and Alessandra gavenus some very useful tips, for eating, for sightseeing and for a beautiful concert. I would definately recommend this place, and if ai ever come back to Florence, I won't hesitate to visit Alessandra's place again.
It was so nice to stay in Allesandra's spacious and nice appartment. The court yard was a big pleasure to sit in the mornings and eveninga. The neighbourhood was really nice too, with the best square of florence around the corner: San Spirito. On this side of he arno you get the real italian vibe, but still on walking distance of all the big hotspots of florence. We had a lovely stay and would recomment this appartment to anyone. Allesandra was a really good and nice host, she gave us really good tips!
The beautiful loft in santo spiritonis indeed beautiful and looks exactly like the pictures. While searching for a place to stay in florencd i immiediatly fell in love with this charming loft for its zen and sober atmosphere and for its location. Since i was previously living in florence i knew in wich area i wanted to live and the loft was perfect for it. 3min by foot to santo spirito and piazza pitti. You just cross the bridge and you arrive in the center. The appartment is quiet and clean. Perfect for 2 persons. There are plenty of convienience store in via dei serragli and a pharmacy right accross the apartment!! Alessandra was a great host. She always responded quickly to my messages and phone calls. although she was away for the week end she didnt hesitate to contact me to ask if everything was okay. To sum up i had a great experience.
