Appartamento semplice e carino, sembrava proprio di essere a casa. La posizione è centralissima. Maria Laura è flessibile e si è adattata perfettamente alle nostre esigenze. Consiglio vivamente.
La camera nel complesso è gradevole, anche se ha alcuni piccoli difetti (manca armadio con appendi abiti, gli scarichi del bagno-doccia non funzionano bene, problemi alle finestre risolti durante la mia permanenza). Lo stabile in cui è inserita la camera è molto vecchio. A conti fatti, il prezzo è un po' alto rispetto ad analoghi b&b e hotel, almeno per quanto riguarda il periodo in cui ho alloggiato a Spoleto (credo bassa stagione).
My sons and I stayed here for a week and it felt like "Home". It was cozy with lots of room. We had friends come around for dinner and a stayover and it did not feel claustrophobic as there are three separate sleeping areas. My sons claimed the mezzanine floor and had no problems whatsoever with bugs or mosquitoes as mentioned in an earlier review!! The heaters kept us warm as the weather started getting cooler. The flat overlooks Piazza Mercato Centrale where you can buy everything you need from leather products to fresh vegetables or you could sit by the window and watch the world go by! If you wish to do some cooking, everything you need is in the kitchen, which has a large fridge and oven. The separate dining room is ideal for hosting friends. The Duomo is literally just around the corner and so is everything you want to see in this beautiful renaissance city!! Overall, Maria Laura was a perfect host and we felt we got the best value for money in Florence. Grazie and Vinaka vakalevu!! Suzie, Joshua and Colin. Suva, Fiji Islands.
hi suzie. I hope your trip was ok. I am very happy you and your family enjoyed florence and my flat. I hope you and your sons the best you wish. all my best. laura
Good place in the city center and close to the most important places in Florence. Laura is very nice she speaks English, Spanish and Italian and helped us to find a parking for our car.
Great location, good resturants next to the door, can go to the centro mercato in the morning for breakfast. Maria is very nice and kind ,the house is clean and got enough space , perfect choice for staying Firenze.
Casa molto carina e in un posto eccezionale. Laura è molto gentile e disponibile e anche flessibile. È venuta incontro alle nostre esigenze senza nessun problema. Consiglio questa casa a chiunque.
persone simpaticissime. tutti educati, puliti ed organizzati. dieci e lode
To say we were disappointed with the property on arrival is an understatement. We felt strongly enough about the inadequacy of this accommodation to relocate to a new residence at our own expense when the host declined our request to refund the remaining days.
Below are the concerns we had:
Odour – dank, drain or mould smell evident. Especially marked in bathroom/kitchenette area. Owner suggested we just open up and air the apartment. Unfortunately the bathroom and kitchenette had no windows to open and so could not be aired effectively. It certainly was in stark contrast to the advertised “a little paradise of serenity and freshness”
Safety – On arrival we were advised not to use the stove top and oven at the same time as we could cause an electrical malfunction. This of course raised concerns about the safety of the electrical wiring in the property
Amenity – While we were not expecting a full kitchen as it was described as a kitchenette we did expect more facilities than were available. We had booked for 3 people and there was not enough cutlery and crockery for 3 and what was provided was of low quality. The host suggested we could request more items from her friend in town, however, this is not what we wish to be doing on holiday.
Cleanliness – The sheets and towels appeared clean, however, we discovered shattered glass from a broken lamp bulb by the bed, which had us questioning if the cleaner had been through since previous guests.
Misleading description - The garden is clearly not maintained and not somewhere you would feel comfortable to ”relax delighting of the landscape”.
On the positive side the host was prompt with responding to correspondence. She kindly agreed to our booking at short notice. Her friend who met us was very warm and helpful and flexible with our uncertain arrival time. Spoleto is a great town and the local bar was very friendly, open late and had good free wifi.
WARNING!! THE FLAT IS IN GOOD LOCATION OF TOWN BUT NEGLECTED AND (WHAT IS MOST
IMPORTANT) WITH BUGS !!! ESPECIALLY BEWRE
OF THE BED ON DARK MEZZANINO!!! THERE IS LOT OF IT!!
Very nice flat, full of character, on a vibrant square in central Florence, great restaurants & bars literally on the doorstep, would recommend
Grand, propre et surtout très bien placé, en plein centre de Florence, tout est accessible à pied ! On a passé un super week-end.
