IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE CHECK-IN:
We agree a time to meet with guests and ask to be respected. If the guest does not warn us in case of delay, our maximum waiting time will be 30 minutes. When the 30 minutes of waiting are over, we will go away and you will need to contact the host to arrange a new meeting point.

The latest check-in is at 23:45.
Just an info: there is a new "tourist tax" that the city of Florence ask to its guests. It is required in the main Italian cities and in all the B&B, hotels etc.
It is a recent regulation (from October 1st, 2014) so we are trying to provide more info about it to our guests during these days. The price is euro 2/night for each guest over 12 years. During the check-in we'll be glad to explain better how it works.
nice place and tasty decoration，but the only problem is the hot water unstable，sometimes very hot
Apartment is beautiful and very well located. The stairs are difficult to manage with a lot of luggage but the apartment itself is very comfortable, roomy, and as it looks in the pictures. Many restaurants within a few blocks and a small convenience store around the corner. Elena was dry welcoming at check-in and willing to answer questions at any time. Apartment is very close to the train station so that was very convenient.
Firstly, I want to thank the team who received us as we were so late due to terrible driving traffic. However, on first sight of this flat, I must admit to some disappointment. The rooms didn't seem as roomy as the pictures made them out to be. (Maybe a special wide angle lens was used to photograph the flat.) No matter though because the apartment was still a decent size and workable for the 6 of us: two adult couples and 2 children.
The most disturbing thing was the lack of air conditioning – one of the advertised features and one of the reasons we chose this apartment for our hot Summer stay. Also, the rooms felt packed with too much furniture (some of it broken), too much clutter, and the apartment looked a bit worn down and not as clean as it should be – dirty finger prints on the walls, dust balls on the floor, a towel rack hanging broken from the wall, broken window blinds, cracked bathroom sink. Basically, it looked like a beautiful apartment that had been wonderfully decorated at some point in the past and now needs some maintenance after much over use.
I will say that, after expressing my disappointment, the management team quickly got new air conditioners installed and working. That was a great blessing.
The other issue is that the bathrooms always smelled of sewage – but so did other areas in the Summer streets of Florence.
Bottom line: This location cannot be beat and this could be a great apartment again with some attention to updates. Repainting the walls, de-cluttering, fixing the broken things mentioned, resolving the bathroom smell issues. I really wanted to give this apartment a good review because the apartment could be so great – like the pictures and description promised – but I felt it would be more constructive to give an honest assessment.
Max had one of his team members meet us upon our arrival. She gave us the tour of the apt which was just as described. The apt is very spacious and easily accommodated the four of us. The location is very central, walking distance to everything. We just loved our visit to Florence! It is such a magical city!
This flat is perfect. The host was great in accommodating our group. Location is amazing as well with everything being in walking distance from most tourist attractions. I would recommend this flat to anyone interested in Florence. Perfect for a larger group looking to explore this amazing city.
The location was good and the house was ok except the toilets were little dirty, and the other one was out of service. Just a reminder there was 20euro for after 10:00pm check in and there were extra taxes for each guest and there is an extra charge for each guest if you want to leave your luaggages after check out too. The helper of the host told us to check out at 10:00am but she never show up I think there was miss communication between us. I felt there was not explained clear enough for the self check out... Anyways we didn't have problems for all other airbnb we had before and this was the first time that we felt little disappointed about BNB. Hopefully they can improve soon.thx
