Great! I highly recommend Elisa's place. It's very well located, sweetly arranged and very clean! Elisa is the perfect host. Thank you Elisa!
I was traveling in Italy for 5 weeks and stayed at 6 different Airbnb's When I met Elisa I felt like I was visiting my best friend. This was one of the BEST Airbnb"s that I stayed at.
Elisa's home is beautiful and she is so accommodating! I checked in early and was able to leave my luggage until the room was ready.Elisa is a very down to earth caring person. I only wish that I had met her earlier so that I could of stayed longer at her home. I loved her cooking class and Reiki and Chakra which I highly recommend. Next time I visit Florence I will definitly stay with Elisa. I MISS YOU Elisa!!!
We had a wonderful stay at Elisa's apartment, wich is located at walking distance from every site you would want to visit in Firenze. The apartment is just what we expected : in an ancient building, with frescoes on the ceiling, comfy, and with a relaxing atmosphere set by Elisa, a really sweet and attentionate host! True, the street downstairs can get noisy at night, but if you have been walking all day in the city and brought your earplugs, you'll fall asleep easily. Even more, take the emotional course with Elisa (reiki & soul painting) : I slept like a baby afterwards and enjoyed the rest of the trip totally relaxed and with a smile on my face!
Elisa's B&B was awesome - located in the heart of Florence and I could explore the city by foot. The room was spacious and clean, with a private toilet down the end of the corridor. The breakfast was very delicious and it was something that I looked forward to every day. I took the cooking class with Elisa, and learned 3 simple but excellent recipes, including 2 kinds of pasta and tiramisu. I also took the Emotional Path session - it was an interesting way to explore my own emotions and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! I would definitely stay here again when I am back in Florence!
Elisa was a perfect host. Her breakfast was delicious, and the room perfectly set out with all the local info that you could ask for. The apartment is situated in a great spot in Florence, although it could be a little noisy for some people during the night. I highly recommend a stay here if your going to Florence.
We really enjoyed Ref and Elisa's place in Florence. The apartment is very clean and roomy. The bedroom has a lot of room and there is a separate, private bath down the hall. The location was so central and easy to walk to everything. It is loud at night above some restaurants, but with the windows shut and earplugs we slept fine and the sounds didn't bother us. Elisa makes a fabulous breakfast - so yummy!!!! I loved the apartment and the frescoes on the ceiling. Ref and Elisa offer a lot of helpful guides, books, and lists of tours and maps to help with your stay. They were very friendly and helpful when we needed advice - very sweet and friendly couple. My daughter and I loved their place and definitely recommend it!!!
What a great location, and what a great hostess. Thanks Elisa for a great stay in Florence.
We really loved staying here - but you have to understand the apartment is in the middle of nightlife central and there is noise at night (nothing earplugs can't fix). Elisa has all the maps and info you will need and she is very helpful to look things up if you need help.
TAKE THE COOKING CLASS. We have learnt how to make proper pasta - throw away your pasta machine and do the class! We made it the day we got home, and it was just as good as it was in Florence - just without the fantastic atmosphere of her kitchen.
Elisa was also very flexible with us as we needed to stay an extra night before we left Italy, and she helped us very much.
Absolutely recommended. SI! Of course!
I had an excellent experience there. Ref and Elisa's apartment is at a great location: all visiting sites are within walking distance, including the train station and a range of eating/drinking facilities near by. The building is beautiful and exotic (fresco paintings on the walls and ceilings), comfortable and spacious room, wonderful hosts with nice breakfast.
The nighttime noise didn't bother me but something to take in account, due to the location: supposedly a major hang-out spot.
If I go to Florence again, I'd like to stay there again.
Elisa's apartment was beautiful and in a fantastic location. The room was comfortable although my husband and I had really bad allergies. The room was definitely clean so wondering if the building itself had something that was making us sneeze. It was also quite hot in florence while we were there and we hoped we might be able to get a fan but we didn't. We just left the blinds closed to keep out the heat during the day.
Breakfasts were great and I loved the music that Elisa played during the day. We were a little bummed that we didn't get to have more conversations with Elisa. Based on the reviews we were hoping to have some chats with her but we didn't see her much. She was helpful when we asked for some tips for things to do but we did feel a bit guilty asking knowing we could pay more for a guided tour. We really would have liked to do a tour and cooking class but with only 1.5 days in florence we were a bit reseed for time.
Overall florence was one our favourite cities in Italy and you really can't beat this location. We had a great time.
We had a wonderful time in Florence.The location was great and really enjoyed spending time with Ref & Elisa The apartment was beautiful and in a fantastic location. Breakfasts were great and the music that Elisa played was enjoyable. We loved the cooking class and now wished that we had taken some of the other extras that she offered. .
