Emiliano es una persona muy abierta y muy confiable, al llegar nos atendió su mamá de forma espléndida ya que el no se encontraba, también nos regaló como bienvenida una botella de vino que ellos mismos producen, la ubicación es fantástica, y el ambiente que hay frente al edificio también, muchas gracias Emiliano, ciao!!!
Dude this is my first airbnb experience and by far the best! I'm in Florence for 5 days let me know if you wanna hangout
My husband and I loved staying in Emiliano and Giacomo's place. It was a very nice and comfy home, rather than a B&B. We received great wine upon arrival and great recommendations for restaurants close to the apartment. The neighborhood had a lively and more authentic feel to it, which is what we wanted. We had access to the kitchen and a private bathroom, which was spacious, clean, and had nice, modern features. No air conditioning made things a little hot, but we made good use of the fans in the room. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends!
You can believe the reviews about Emiliano's listing. It is located very well, just outside the noise and bustle of the city center but easily walkable to the main attractions of Florence. It is clean with a dedicated bathroom and access to his kitchen and overall very cute and comfortable. We slept with the windows open and slept soundly. Emiliano is very easy to converse with and has wonderful advice about what to do. He is a very nice man. We were more interested in local happenings and he gave us directions to a couple of markets where we had the most fun. The apartment is located a couple of floors up so it could be cumbersome with big suitcases, but worth the trip. We were two females traveling together and felt perfectly safe in the neighborhood even after it became dark. This is the perfect place to stay and explore Florence, we highly recommend it and would stay there again with no hesitation.
Emiliano is a really friendly and nice host. He can speak a little Chinese, and give us some tips about visit the city. The apartment is perfect, very clean and cozy, and everything equipped. It also close to the city center, so you can go everywhere easily. Recommend this sweet bnb to everyone.
Emiliano was a wonderful host! He was very kind, welcoming and helpful with local recommendations. He was flexible for the check out too.
The room is very clean and comfortable, located in a lovely neighborhood in Florence surrounded by great places to eat and relax.
We would definitely stay here again next time!
We really enjoyed our stay here! The flat is really easy to find and perfect located, 10mins walking from the major touristic attractions. The room was clean and the bathroom too, Emiliano was really kind with us and really helpful.
I definetely reccomend to stay in his place.

About the Host, Emiliano E Giacomo
Ciao a tutti!
Sono Emiliano e abito a Firenze, città che non vedo l´ora di mostrarvi.
Adoro cucinare e leggere. Sono una persona estroversa che adora fare nuove (website hidden) e mio fratello Giacomo affittiamo le nostre stanze quando non siamo a Firenze perchè tutti e due studiamo all'estero. Dato che la nonna non e' esperta di informatica le diamo una mano gestendo anche il suo appartamento.
Quando noi non ci siamo mia mamma vi darà il benvenuto!
Che altro dirvi.. vi aspetto a Firenze! :)
