We had a wonderful stay! This property is perfectly positioned and very well appointed. Though the apartment itself is very old it has been very tastefully updated while preserving the old world charm. The bathroom is very nice and new and we found everything we needed for our 3 day stay. (There were even things like shampoo & conditioner, paper towels, tea bags, and an electric kettle!) Paolo is a superb host. We actually arrived a bit earlier than expected but Paolo was already on site to greet us. He provided us with an orientation to both the apartment and the area, gave us restaurant recommendations (which were terrific!), provided us with maps and answered all of our questions. We had an afternoon train but nowhere to stow our bags. Paolo graciously allowed us a late check-out. We highly recommend both this apartment and host without reservation and would not hesitate to book this or one of Paolo's other properties the next time we are in Florence! Don't think twice . . . this is a great apartment.
Amazing location on a quiet street close to all the sites
We loved this beautiful apartment! It was super close to all the requisite sights of Florence, but up a charming hill full of gorgeous old homes that gave me a sense of the city I had never had before. Paolo was charming and friendly, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
L'appartamento si trova in una buona posizione, pulito e non manca nulla mi sento di raccomandarlo se volete visitare Firenze. Ottima comunicazione con il padrone di casa.
Paolo loves Florence and wants to share his city with visitors.
The Romantic Hideaway is just off the hustle and bustle of the city. It was a great place to go to recharge. The bed is comfortable, the apartment is quiet (remember it is a city so it's not like the quiet of the country), the shower is very nice with plenty of hot water, and the kitchen has all the basics. The apartment itself is charming and tastefully decorated. Paolo supplies his own map with suggestions of his favorite restaurants and sights. He also has guide books on hand that add insights to the city. He was so helpful, from telling us the best place to park the car (no need for it in the city) and arranging a cab back to the car when we left. I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful space.

We had a wonderful stay in Florence at Paolo's apartment. The location was great and Paolo went above and beyond working with our schedule to meet us at the apartment. Paolo was great and gave us some awesome recommendations for dinner. The apartment is in a great neighborhood close to everything but away from the crowds. My wife and I stayed for two nights but the apartment would make a great base for a much longer stay.
Хорошая квартира, чистая, аккуратная, рядом с центром. Очень удобно гулять пешком. Хозяин очень внимательный, встретил с улыбкой, рассказал как дойти до центра, посоветовал ресторан (это вообще отдельная тема!!! Ресторан-супер! Особенно "Флорентийский стейк!)))" Город-сказка, надеюсь еще вернуться туда и скорее всего в ту же квартиру!)) Спасибо Паоло, спасибо сайт!
Paolo's apartment is so charming and cozy... perfect location and every comfort a traveler needs. Paolo was very welcoming and took time to give us an introduction to the area. An excellent host with an outstanding property.
