  • The apartment is at good location, just 5 minutes walk to a local food market and 15 minutes to a huge supermarket. It is within walking distance to most tourist attractions. The apartment is clean and tidy, spacious, some steps within apartment, have public laundry room, wifi a little bit weak, still acceptable. Kitchen although has only basic stuff, you can make a simple breakfast. It does not matter if you don't cook on your travel.

    The host on Airbnb is a property agent (she responded quickly) and we did not meet her but only the property manager. He is a nice guy, introducing us the neighborhood and giving us good tourist recommendations. Do make sure you communicate clearly for your check in hour. The check in desk has limited open hours. One problem we encountered is taxi booking. He confirmed us that he can help to book a taxi to take us from apartment to train station (remember that it is very difficult to get a taxi as this is a very short distance to train station, not many taxi driver is willing to take you and it is not okay to walk there with suitcases). However he forgot and we could not get a taxi on the street. We finally caught a bus and luckily we did not miss the train.

  • В целом неплохо. Путешествуем с двумя детьми и лабрадором :) . Для такого набора - вполне приятное место за свои деньги . И расположение и качество вполне неплохо. Обратить внимание на строгие ограничения по времени заезда и то, что после 22 нельзя шуметь - может кому-то это критично .

  • Le persone che gesticono la struttura sono magnifiche, Rachid ci ha accolto come un padre, ci ha fatto togliere una multa, ci ha prenotato in un Ristorante per il 31/12 a 2 passi dall'appartamento e in più ci ha lasciato qualche ora in più per il check-out. Se andate a Firenze per qualche giorno contattate Rachid, vi farà sentire come a casa vostra.

About
I'm Leah originally from Australia I lived for 14 years in Florence, Italy where I still have active contacts. For the past year I have lived in Marrakech, Morocco a vibrant town pulsating in exotic sounds and sites. I love living here; the people, the food, the landscape, the religion, the architecture and the music... Travel expands our life experience, paradoxically encountering people and places out of our daily routines and comfort zones increases understanding of ourselves and those close to us...
