Paola' apartment was very comfortable, clean and well located. It has a grocery store close by, a laundrymat at tge corner and the best vegetarian restaurant a block away called Verdi. In addition, it was walking distance to all the museums, duomo and train station. I will highly recommend this apartment.
A clean and cozy apartment, perfectly located to explore the beautiful city of Florence! The unit has a well-stocked kitchen, large bed, and clean sheets, towels, utensils and appliances - felt very welcoming the moment we stepped in. The bed is a bit soft; other than that, we had no issues at all. It is on the first floor with some steep steps; something to keep in mind if there is a lot of luggage (which we did not have initially, but we left with a lot more due to the shopping!).
s historic center, with an abundance of eating options within a couple of minutes. Highly recommend *not* eating in the main tourist squares, but instead stray even 100 ft off the piazzas to find street-side cafes and restaurants offering more authentic Florentine cuisine. Bus stops for a couple of different routes are very close to the apartment, but we always found them to be too busy; plus the walk was delightful in the good weather we encountered. Only downside to the apartment was that no taxis are available without having to walk for a while; inconvenient when trying to get to the train station with luggage. However, taking a taxi to the apartment from the train station is not a problem.
Paola was very responsive during the planning stages, and even though she had to be away from Florence when we arrived, she was able to let us into the apartment remotely. The apartment was immaculately arranged for our arrival; she has a guidebook for local logistics that we found very useful. I wish other hosts did the same too!
Communication with our host was excellent, both before and during the stay. We appreciated the comprehensive guide to the apartment's features, and the thoughtful touch of candies in a dish. The furnishings and kitchen provided just what was needed to make a family dinner. The location of the apartment was as promised, within easy walking distance of the heart of Florence (10 minutes).
We had an amazing time in Florence. The apartment was in a fantastic location (5 min to the Duomo, if that) and was had everything we needed for our stay. The apartment was close to several restaurants, cafes and a grocery store. If I were to come back to Florence I would stay again.
The host & her family were wonderful and gave us a warm welcoming!
The listing was accurate and the neighborhood is really a good place to stay in Florence.
The apartment was in a great location where everything was near!
Everything was clean and fully equipped!
If you are looking for a place to stay in, this one is a great choice!
Hi Paola, We have really enjoyed our stay in your apartment - great location, perfectly equipped, good size for the 3 of us so we are sure that we will contact you next time our plans go towards Florence.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Florence. Paola's apartment is in a very central location so we could walk everywhere with ease. Paola was very easy to communicate with, quick to respond & accommodating. The apartment was warm & comfortable. We recommend!
Fantastic place to stay! Wonderful, caring but non-intrusive host Paola. Late check in or early chek out - no problem. Everything, and I mean absolutely EVERYTHING is thought through for the convenience of guests.
Clean, tastefully renovated pleasant apartment. Lovely, quircky neighborhood. Fantastic Mediterranean restaurant virtually on the door step. 10 minutes walk to Duomo. 1 minute walk to Santa Croce. Absolutely loved it. Natalya
Paola and her husband Enrico met us at the apartment, and made us feel incredibly welcome. The apartment is beautiful and very clean and well-maintained, and also has all of the amenities you might need to feel at home. I highly recommend staying in Paola's excellent apartment!
