Ralph and Scott's home is truly unique. The location is very central and we were happy with their recommendations for dinner and sites. We loved staying with them. The company was even better than the breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and we will miss Etna, their lovely dog!
This house is amazing! It was in a great location in Florence. Stephano was very helpful, by telling us about nice restaurants and places to see. We enjoyed our stay here, and would highly recommend staying here.
We enjoyed a fabulous four days at Stefano's Florence home. Not only were we in the heart of the city and within walking distance to all the beautiful sites; we also enjoyed a warm and inviting time at Stefano's incredible apartment. We are fortunate to have found this place and would recommend the Art Flat to anyone looking for a real cultural experience in Florence.
Really enjoyed our stay here for 2 nights. The bed is VERY comfortable and they left us plenty of storage space to put our clothes away. As many have said here, the location could not be better for getting around Florence. Hope to stay here again in the future.
We stayed with Stefano for one night but wish we could have been there longer. The apartment is beautiful--it feels like you are staying in a museum which is a very cool experience in and of itself. The location is amazing! Florence is very small and walkable and this hotel happens to be in the center of all the major sights. It is even walking distance from the major train station (SMN). The room is very nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable. You have your own private bathroom. In fact, for those that may be concerned about privacy--it is not an issue at all. You basically have your own little space in this beautiful apartment.
Most importantly, Stefano and Ralph are such gracious hosts. They answer questions, provide recommendations and are overall just interesting, intelligent and delightful to talk to. They were also very accommodating. We were not leaving until late the day we checked out and they held our bags for us and we just arranged a time to meet and pick them up in the evening.
This was my first time booking something through air bnb--I usually stay in hotels and can admit that I am somewhat of a hotel snob and like to stay in nice places. After staying here, I realize the wonderful experiences I could be missing out on! Plus this apartment is probably more comfortable and more beautiful than any 5 star hotel in Florence. I will definitely be recommending this place to all of my friends.
We had a wonderful time staying with Stefano. His home is so lovely and interesting, and you can't beat the location! We really enjoyed talking to him about Florence, Italy in general, and his work experiences. We would definitely recommend staying here, and would do so again given the opportunity!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Scott and Ralph's lovely flat. The location of their flat could not be more perfect. They are literally around the corner from the Duomo. Scott made dinner recommendations for us both nights and served us a delicious breakfast. We only wished we had stayed longer. Thank you to Scott and Ralph.
Great place, very convenient location in the middle of the city. Ideally to walk around :)
We'll definitely stay there next time we go to Florence...
Hosts were very informative and helpful.
Breakfast was an experience as it was served in a room like museum with us sitting on thrones :-D
Stefano has been a great host. All our needs were provided and the location is simply great. The place look exactly like in the photos and we enjoyed our stay there despite being for only a day. I would recommend staying with him for an unique experience.
We had a delightful stay at the "Art Flat". Stefano was welcoming, hospitable, and prepared a wonderful breakfast for us each morning (LOVED the coffee). Great company all the way (Ralph had me laughing!) Traveling Europe can be quite intimidating, so it was nice to stay in such a warm and welcoming environment. Bed was very comfy! Location was perfect. Design/Art/Decor of the space is truly one of a kind. Thanks again for all your hospitality. :)
