Niccoló was a great host. He thinks everything for you. The apartment is close to everywhere actually it is at the middle of the all places. It was clean and tidy. His restaurants advices were also awesome.
We had a brilliant stay at the apartment! Everything was exactly as described - neat, compact apartment with everything you need, kept spotlessly clean, and in a fantastic location, right by the Santa Croce. We walked everywhere, didn't get a bus once, and there are some nice little coffee shops and a handy supermarket within a few minutes.
Niccolo was a great host, he gave us excellent restaurant recommendations and a really useful map of the city and responded really quickly to any queries we had. The bottle of wine he left us was a lovely touch and delicious too!
I would definitely recommend both Niccolo and the apartment, and would book this apartment if I ever go back to Florence. Big thumbs up from us!
We had a wonderful time in Florence staying in Niccolo's apartment, and the friendly, positive and informative welcome from Niccolo set us up nicely for our short visit. The apartment had all that we needed and the location is fabulous, very central so we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Thank you Niccolo for being such a good host and helping to make our stay a positive experience.
Staying in Niccolo's apartment was everything so many guests have already said! Very comfortable, very homey, very clean, with many amenities. On a quiet street that is just off the center of Florence but near everything.
And Niccolo himself provides so much information about the city he obviously knows and loves. He was a wonderful host, and ready to provide guidance if we needed it.
