Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Mario and his roommate were the most wonderful of hosts. They provided us with maps to the city, a city guide and had business cards and recommendations on the best eateries in town. They even offered to accompany us to the Galleria dell' Accademia since they knew someone there who could help us at the location.

    The roommates' apartment was well-kept, and clean. The kitchen was tidy, and the bathroom was spotless. The room was spacious, had huge windows, and plenty of sunlight.

    Additionally, the location was a huge, huge bonus. Their place is very centrally located near several major attractions the city has to offer. The place is maybe a 7-8 minute walk from the railway station, 4 minutes from the Piazza S. Maria Novella, and close to the Duomo as well. Plenty of food, coffee and laundry places close-by as well.

    Overall, we had a great experience, the hosts were friendly, and fun to talk to, the location is excellent and convenient especially if you're planning to hop on to the train to visit the rest of Italy, and I'd definitely recommend Mario's place to friends and family alike!!

  • Mario was very quick and to the point which we like. Having already lived in Florence we didn't need any verbal tours of the city or anything like that. He was ready with a map, wifi connection, clean apartment and bathroom and we were on our way in an EXCELLENT location in Florence. Minutes from the Duomo, Uffizi, Stazione and more.

  • Best location! 5 mins walk from firenze novella station and close to the shopping district. Room was comfortable and mario was most helpful!

  • Mario's apartment, as promised was ideally located, a short walk away from many of Florence's highlights, and a 5 minute walk from the railway station! The apartment is charming, the bedroom is extremely comfortable, and Mario is a wonderful, hospitable host, generous with his space, time, and travel assistance. We traveled with a 2.5 year old daughter who loved the house and really got on well with Mario (and his 40" television!).
    The kitchen is well equipped for preparing breakfast (Mario provides a generous box of tea, jam, butter, honey) to an urgent, exhausted dinner, if required. With the area surrounded by trattorias and bars, serving up a range of experiences, the need hardly ever arises.
    We had no problems communicating with Mario, and although he says he speaks little English, he speaks it perfectly, and promptly.
    The only irritant was a Florentine mosquito buzzing in the October night, and the "charming" old door locks, which take a little practice before you get the hang of how to get into the house in under 3 minutes! We would love to go back and yes, would stay at Mario's again.

  • Mario is a warm and relaxed host. You can use his kitchen if you wish. The location of the place is perfect: right in the center of the historic area of Florescence. An elevators takes you to his 4th floor spacious and airy apartment with a view of the city.

    The apartment has two bedrooms and both are rented. One bedroom is large and airy, and has a modest amount of space for putting away clothes (most of the closet is filled up). The second bedroom is small and completely filled with personal things of the owner. There is hardly any room for putting away clothes. It was clear that Mario temporarily moved out from his own bedroom to let us use it while he slept on the living room couch.

    Our least favorite part of the stay was the bathroom. First, it is completely filled with the personal stuff of the owner. You cannot put a needle in that bathroom among all the other stuff already there. We had to store our cosmetics cases and towels in our sleeping room. The second problem is that when both bedrooms are rented there are four people using this single bathroom. That would not be my choice if I knew in advance that I would be sharing a bathroom with two other guests, and with personal stuff of the owners.

  • Happy to meet Mario and stay at his apartment. The location is great as it is very center and all will be walking distance. With the map provided and food recommendation we do enjoy our trip in Florence very much. Thanks to Mario and his friend.

    October 2013
  • Mario and his apartment are fantastic! Mario is super friendly, gave us a map when we arrived and some excellent recommendations for places to eat/things to see around town. The apartment is in an amazing location, clean, spacious and beautiful. We could easily walk to all the major sights. We loved our stay at Mario's and we would love to stay with him again next time we come to Florence!

    October 2013
