The Space

Wonderful room located in the centre of Florence, near Polimoda (200m) and Duomo (10 minute walking) and in front of the Arno river.

The room is big, with a double bed, big wardrobe and a huge window (it is very bright!),
bathroom use included in a just renoved big bathroom.

The room is located at the first floor of a flat in a historical building, the neighborhood is in the heart of Florence: Borgo Ognissanti, where you can find all the facilities like:
minimarkets, wine shops, pharmacy, restaurants and bars.
There is also a delicious sandwiches takeaway just around the corner!

The apartment has a total of 3 bedrooms and there is also a large entrance hall, a shared bathroom and a well equipped kitchen.

You can reach the station by walk where you will find all public transport and explore the city!

High speed WiFi and washing machine included.

I have another listing on this apartment, if the dates you chose are not avaliable, check the other one!

Special offers available for long terms bookings.

CHECK IN= AFTER 2 pm

Guest Access

Guests can use the kitchen for cooking their own meals as long as they clean after and don't leave food or dirty plates around.
Laundry machine use is permitted to guests who stay at least 3 days and it has to be done in the night hours ( after 9 pm)

Interaction with Guests

If I am home I am very happy to have a chat and get to know my guest according to my schedule.
Sometimes has happened that me or my flatmates had lunch and dinner together with the guests but unfortunately we have very busy university and work schedules so it won't be possible all the times.
I am always available for any information even if I'm not around I am open to calls, texts or emails.

The Neighborhood

Borgo Ognissanti is one of the best neighborhoods in Florence, surrounded by nice cafes, bakeries, restaurants and supermarkets.
It is very central and you can reach all the main attractions with a little walk ( Duomo, Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio). It is also very safe since we have a police station just in front of our house.

Getting around

You won't need to take busses or trains to explore the city, everything is walking distance including SMN station that is 5-7 minutes away (less than 1 KM!!)
Pisa airport is well connected through Terravision Bus, that leads you from the airport to SMN station.
Florence airport is connected to the city center with a specific bus that will lead you literally steps from the house.

Other Things to Note

It is very important for guests to know that 99% of the times they WILL NOT be alone in the house.
The house is made of 3 different rooms and they are mostly occupied by me, my flatmates or other Air Bnb guests.

  • Could not recommend more. Giada is great, the room was spacious, the location was fantastic, and the stay was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks Giada!

  • Giada was very friendly and helpful. She received us upon our arrival at her apartment We didn't interact much due to her needing to be elsewhere but she made it known that we could contact her any time for help.

    The location was perfect and within 5 minutes of walking distance from the train station. The place was clean and very spacious. The place felt really safe as the place is just opposite the police station.

    Place was located on the 2nd floor and had no lift but is only a small issue. Area was a bit noisy but is not within Giada's control and can be solved easily with earplugs.

  • Location is the best feature here! Everywhere is within walking distance (5-20mins' walk depending where you're heading to!) Decent, spacious space for two. My husband & I appreciated the assistance & recommendations offered by Giada - thanks for letting us crash your place ;)

  • Room is clean, comfortable and big enough to stay some days! It is really close to Central station (S.M.N) so easy to get to the flat! And completely clean room enough to make me happy when I arrive there. She gave me a lot of useful information and help me a lot!

  • My friend and I stayed for a few days in the lovely old building in the heart of Florence. We could walk to everything and the stay was just fine.we chose to stay here while the host was away, and We had a few problems with the keys, and getting in and out of the apartment, but the host was very easy to reach and responded quickly, so it wasn't a problem. Lovely stay.

  • Huge and bright room in the perfect location to walk all around Florence. It is close to the river and to Ponte Veccio, three minutes walking from the train station. The flat is clean and tidy. I definetely recomend this place!

  • Very strange experience.. Turns out we were with 2 other air bnb guests while we were staying there. The host wasn't there when we arrived her house keeper let us in and didn't speak English but she did her best. We tried to contact Tiara about a few questioned, but we didn't hear back from her until out last day there. Not our favorite stay but if you need somewhere to sleep it will do.

    Response from Giada:

    1) Kathryn contacted me through (website hidden) once, it's true I got back to her with a day of delay but if it was urgent she could have called me or texted me since she had my number and email.
    2) My house keeper didn't speak english but I emaiedl Kathryn all the details and she could communicate anyway with me through emails and texts
    3) The flat is shared and it's clearly written here on air bnb, I'm so sorry if it was a surprise but I have other 3 rooms listed on the website and if the guest knows that it could cause a problem than is better to ask and be sure about it in advance.
