I'm Emilio Filippo, born in Florence, but i'm half american, interested in al types of art and love to travel.
Fantastic location away from the crowed inner city but easy walking to all tourist attractions. Great cafés and restaurants 100 meters in the flat. Emilio was friendly and happy to assist whenever he could. Good value for money, highly recommended, would stay again.
We loved the neighborhood! The place was nice (decoration,kitchen,big and comfortable bed, wc) but if we forget the unpainted walls, the walking bug on the wall and the terrible humidity. Once I washed my hair, the other day were smelling humidity. That was really uncomfortable. Also, the place did not have any sunlight. From the pictures, no one can understand it. I thought the place was on a road, and not an inside terrace place. This is not very clear. I wouldn't recommended it, specially for couples.
This studio was just wonderful, a little damp at night yet it was October after all! The location was great, away from the main tourist area yet so close to walk to many great sites. The neighborhood was also very nice with cafes and restaurants and authentic gelato! Emilio was just super, very attentive and professional to deal with.
This was a perfect place to stay. Everything about the apartment was convenient (except the wifi connection) and clean. A dehumidifier kept the humidity down in the rainy time in October and all the other appliances worked as well. Filippo was a perfect host, agreeable and available. I recommend this place for anyone wanting a little studio.
Emilio ist ein netter Gastgeber, alles hat bestens geklappt. Das Apartment liegt sehr zentral, in einem tollen Viertel und nur wenige Schritte von allen Sehenswürdigkeiten und dem Arno entfernt. Bei heißen Temperaturen ist es dort immer kühler, das es nur ein Fenster in der Küche und die Eingangstür besitzt. Der Patio lädt zum sitzen ein.

This is a perfect place to stay in Florence. It's just across the river from all the main attractions, basically at the bottom of the hill of piazza Michelangelo.
Everything is walkable, 10-20 at best to see most things. Less then 10 mins from Ponte vecchio.
In the area where the apartment is itself, Ultrano, there are a good few restaurants around, saves you going into the centre and eating at touristy places and far cheaper.
Emilio was not around when we arrived but his brother met us, no problems. Emilio provided us with info for getting the buses from the train station to he apartment.
The apartment was lovely. There was a hair dryer, towels, a lovely big bathroom with bidet, large shower etc.
There was air conditioning which was great as it was 35 every day!
Fantastic place. Highly recommend! And will be back :)
Studio très bien placé pour aller à pied au centre-ville, et en plus avec l'air conditionnée, indispensable en août!
Seul bémol c'est un peu humide mais largement supportable.
Comfortable and clean apartment, perfect location--in my favorite neighborhood of Florence and close enough to the city center without being stuck in the touristy areas, and Emilio was extremely nice and helpful with any questions we had.
The apartment is located right by the river and was only a 10-15 minute walk to just about any downtown attraction we wanted to go to, which was perfect! It was nice to be able to sleep somewhere that was quite as busy as staying in a hotel right in the downtown area, but still had some night life with local bars and restaurants along the same street. In fact, one of the best restaurants (Zeb) and gelataria that we went to in Florence was literally only a few steps away which was really convenient. It was perfect for myself and my friend sine we were looking for something simple, but still felt comfortable by providing all the essentials such as wifi, air conditioning, linens, a kitchen, shower, etc.. The apartment is also pretty dark and stays cool from having brick walls, which was really great considering we were there during the peak of the summer heat and humidity. It was also great that Emilio's office was literally next door, and was easy to contact and get a hold of if we needed anything/had any questions.
Had a great time in Florence. The apartment was perfect nice area and super close to everything. Emilio was very helpful.
