The experience with Ciro was great. The flat has the best views in all of florence. A real hidden gem! Ciro met me at the flat and walked me through everything I needed to know. He made himself available throughout my stay if I needed anything. Would definitely recommend this flat for people traveling to florence!
호스트는 체크인 시간이 멀었는데도 불구하고 우리가 도착하는 시간에 맞춰 집정리를 끝내놓고 집앞에서 우리를 기다려주었으며 집에 대한 설명을 매우 쉽고 친절하게 알려주었다. 두오모 바로 앞에 위치하여 창문으로 보이는 두오모가 매우 로맨틱하였다. 다른 여행객들에게 추천할만한 숙소이다.
This is a lovely, spacious, light- filled apartment in a great location, with breath-taking views of il Duomo.
We were greeted warmly by Ciro, and everything was clearly explained.
However, the trade-off for the location is the noise at night. We needed ear-plugs (supplied) to sleep.
A perfect stay! The apartment is exactly as described, except even closer to the duomo than it seems in the pictures. Ciro graciously forgave us for being late (we couldn't get a taxi from the parking lot where we left our car) and gave us a very thorough tour of the apartment. He is a lovely host.
It is a very lively location, so be forewarned: if you are looking for a quiet retreat, look elsewhere! This is in the very heart of Florence, and is just as exciting and noisy as that sounds. We loved it.
Simply rent this place. The central location to train station, the Duomo, Uffizi and Accedemia make walking to the major sites a pleasure. There is a taxi stand directly below the flat for any other travel needs. We took in a football match at the nearby stadium and helped cheer Fiorentina on!
The flat itself is outstanding! The view of the Duomo is legitimate and absolutely accurate to description. Building has a lift which is a plus. Bed is very comfortable and unit was very clean and inviting. Ciro is fantastic and very welcoming. Great communication from start to finish, with lots of great recommendations on restaurants, etc. Some note the ambient street noise as an issue but it never really bothered us. Yes...you can hear the chatter of people enjoying the city but we just considered it part of the Florence charm. It is not like listening to cats in heat or bar fights. Highly recommend choosing Ciro and this perfect flat for your Florence trip.
숙소가 역에서 걸어서 15분정도 였습니다
찾기도 쉬웠고 두오모 바로뒤여서 위치는 최고였습니다.
숙소에 두오모 쿠폴라가 보일정도로 전망이 좋습니다.
호스트는 아주 친절하였고 숙소는 깨끗했습니다
