I m an wasy going and friendly woman working as free lance graphic designer!i like jazz music,reading and good wine.
I'm origanally from Ravenna and moved to Florence 10 years ago.
Monia's flat was awesome! Despite being outside the historic centre, it was easily accessible by several bus lines, and was a great relief from the tourist hustle and bustle. The flat was very clean, and we even did laundry. The kitchen and bathroom was well-maintained. She had a few restaurant recommendations, which turned out to be very good. I will definitely consider staying with Monia again if I come back to Florence in the future.
Monia is a great host. Helpful and understanding. The flat is charming and comfortable and located in one of the great areas of Florence just on the edge of the centre and very close to the S.M. Novella station. There are some fantastic places to eat in the area too. Ask her about them and you won't regret the tiramisu... :)
monia is a very kind host..we were chatting and drinking red wine together :) the appartment is in an quite but nice area about 5min with the bus away from the citycenter. monia, your english is really good :) thnx for the nice stay!
I've had a great time staying at Monia's : she was both very welcoming and helpful. Thanks to her recommandations for instance I've had dinner in nice places in Florence. And I was glad we could have a little chat together from time to time.
The apartment is not right in the city center but you dont have to worry as the ride is rather quick and safe : I made it by walking, always, though you can do it by bus very conveniently as well.
Great flat & room as the photos...Monia is very helpful with any questions u might have....the steak restaurant that she recommends is surperb~
This is the best budget u can find in Florence, I think, only the wall is thin, so maybe not good for couple. Otherwise, it is great!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Florence and at Monia's apartment. The bedroom was comfortable and we especially appreciated the use of the kitchen. The location is out of the tourist area but close to downtown with a quick ride on the no. 4 bus to the train station. The neighborhood has great cafes and is close to nice hillside walks in the woods near the Stibbert Museum. A large Coop grocery market is nearby.
Comfortable room in a very nice flat. Both room and flat have all the necessary equipment, you will feel like being at home.
The flat is reasonably near the city centre: 20 minuts walking from Santa Maria Novella Train Station; however you can pick up to three buses (14, 2 and 28) to arrive there.
Monia was very helpful and we had no problems checking in, and gave us good tips for getting around florence and some places to go. The room was comfortable, pleasant and was a good size. The location was pretty good, the bus was just across the road and easy enough to navigate, and we were able to walk back to our room from the river on New Year's Eve without a trouble.
We loved our time in florence and would stay there again. Recommended!!
We stayed 5 nights at Monia's appartment around christmas. It was very convenient to us and situated close to our family we could walk to.
We stayed here for 4 days for our trip to Florence, Monia was a nice host and assisted us throughout our stay, finding food recommendations to us and suggesting places to visit as well.
The location is also near the SMN train station, with a bus that brings you to the station in about 4 stops. It was easy to find and we were able to check in early as well at about 10am which helped us alot. On the last day we could also place our bags in the living room to facilitate the next guest and have a late check out. As for daily groceries like fruit juice and pastries for breakfast, there is a supermarket within walking distance as well.
The place was also clean and we enjoyed our stay there due to Monia's help and hospitality. She also helped us with our laundry and helped us to dry it by hanging it for us while we were out, which saved us alot of time and effort and we are immensely thankful and grateful for her efforts. Our clothes were then folded when it had dried, much to our surprise as well. We could only feel grateful for all her help and could not believe a host could actually be so nice and helpful towards us.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and we would like to thank Monia for her hospitality. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is considering to stay here!
I know Monia since long time,she s a Very reliable and funny person.
I know the flat and it is all new, clean and nicely decorated
