Alessandra è un'ottima padrona di casa, gentile disponibile e piacevole! L'appartamento è molto accogliente e la stanza ha tutti i comfort. Voto: 10 e lode !
I enjoyed staying with Alessandra in Florence, as her apartment is in a very central location (overlooking Piazza Santa Croce) and Alessandra was a gracious host. The "veduta mozzafiato" (breathtaking view) she advertised was accurate, as the apartment looked out both over the piazza and over the rooftops and towers of the historic town center. We became good friends during the 5 days I spent with her (it helped that I speak fluent Italian) and parted company with friendly affection. The apartment itself is kind of funky, very much reflecting the owner's personality (think: artistic and counter-culture attributes -- books, tchotchkes, fringed lampshades, pictures of cats and sayings from gurus) but that gave it a funky feel that I could appreciate as a former hippie! Alessandra made a lovely breakfast for me every morning and could not have been more helpful and accommodating -- including helping me up and down the stairs with my luggage! (the apartment is a third-floor walkup -- actually fourth floor, by the American system of numbering floors. In Europe, unlike America, the ground floor is considered zero, the first floor being what we call the 2nd). We had some very interesting and lively conversations that I considered an unexpected bonus of my stay there. So it was good -- but be prepared to climb stairs if you stay there!
Caro Daniel mi ha fatto molto piacere trovare la tua recensione e mi sono molto divertita a leggerla; ho imparato molte cose delle quali ignoravo l'esistenza e posso migliorare anche la descrizione della casa. Grazie di cuore. Spero di rivederti, chissa magari capito a N.Y.! Sappi comunque che a Firenze hai un'amica.
My friend and I had a truly amazing time in Firenze not only how pretty the city is itself but it all came to Alessadra and her place. Alessandra's place is absolutely gorgeous, cozy, artistic and in super excellence location. Although, there is no elevator but that's very typical for a historical Italian building. Alessandra's duplex is AMAZINGGGGG !!! totally worth your effort of climbing up the stairs :P The pretty view of Firenze is all within your hands, almost 360 degrees from Alessandra's upper floor outdoor balcony. There, you can sit, relax and enjoy the great view. Alessandra is such a very sweet host, she always care about us as we are two girls travelling. We felt so warm living in her place and enjoyed the breakfast so much. We totally miss the taste of your coffee : ) Definitely and highly recommend Alessandra's place !!!! Really hope to see you again either in Thailand or Firenze.
Alessandra was a very kind and friendly lady, and willing to help us in many ways. My husband and I really enjoyed the time in Firenze, thanks to her kind support. The location was perfect. I loved the view from the balcony you can feel surrounded by many of historical monuments of Firenze and lively enjoy the atmosphere of local downtown. The apartment interior was so cute and you feel happy when you stay there! The host is a trip lover with lots of energy and love in every aspect of life, so i really enjoyed every minute of time with her.
I already miss Alessandra's now back home... I will definitely come back again!
