thank you Ursula, I felt a beat embarrassed to write a review for you, for a very very few interaction we had in one week, also because it would have been your "first" review. Now, I cannot write anymore a review for you, so I must do it here.
I would suggest you to open you to be more pleasant towards those who welcomes you in their holiday house, to replay to messages and cares of your host,
1) I know you're not going to change the information in my listing; but, by which route you've calculated the minutes of the holiday house distances from Duomo, etc? those you mentioned are not true for the shortest and direct route, or are those of a person who walks walk at a slow pace
2) thanks so much for reporting the broken spring in the sofa (couch), and I am very sorry! The sofa is a little over a year, the damage was not visible because the sofa is perfectly flat, it will be broken during the stay of previous guests, it can happen when you do not ask for any deposit and act on trust, without a rigid check-out. I will replace it, as soon as the guests will be leaving;
3) I sent a request, before your arrival, to the Municipality to change position at the garbage collection point, they shoud do in the following days. However, unfortunately in the historic center of Florence cleaning and garbage collection starts earlier, because before 8:30 to 9:00 must be all in order. With a light sleep can be a problem, you are right
4) about the absence of elevator, it is already in the listing details. I normaly remind it during the booking conversation at the holdest people. Unfortunately the ancient buildings, are not always allowed, during restoration works, to build up lifting systems.
Thanks again for your suggestions! You are always wellcome, best regards Gianuigi
Thank you Gary, you are right is not too far, I really measure 6-7 minutes walking from the house to the back side of the Dome, but may be I am too faster. and may be you made a longer path, the fastest is passing from San Marco (3-5 minuets, first street on the left), than (Via Cavour, first street on the right, 4-5).
