I'm a friendly person and I like to host foreign people from everywhere! My apartment (where I usually live when I'm in Florence) is just like me: open, cosy and easy...

We're very happy with our stay at Carlo's apartment. The location could not be better, very close and convenient to the train station, walking distance to city center and very quite at night. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is great. There is a new washing machine and fully loaded kitchen with plenty of light and air in the apartment. We love to return here after a whole day out exploring the city.
Carlo is super sweet and helpful. He greeted us and helped us with our luggage up and down the stairs. Check in and check out is flexible. Carlo also recommended great restaurants and gelato shop. You must trust his recommendations. We're so glad we did. Highly recommended Carlo's place in Florence.
This was my first experience at AIR BnB and I was very happy with this apartment. It is conveniently located near the train station and very easy to find. The owner, Carlo, is a very nice man who met me at the apartment and he was very punctual. He helped me with my heavy luggage, kindly provided me with maps of Florence and gave me tips on good shopping places. The apartment is decorated in modern style, it is fully equipped and it is on two floors. The WiFi worked very well which was very important to me. I found many collections of interesting publications among which the National Geographic. The apartment was very quiet and I slept very well. Thank you Carlo! Next time I come to Florence I would love to stay again in your apartment.
Michelle and I had the pleasure of staying at Carlo's apartment for 5 nights while we were in Florence.
Carlo met us outside the apartment and help us with our bags up the 3 flights of stairs and was always very responsive with any questions we had throughout the week.
His place is exactly as advertised and more. Great decorations with funky art, posters and photographs as well as poems and writings on the walls. A spiral staircase leads to a warm and comfortable loft loaded with books and a television (that we never used). The bathroom was well appointed and the shower and washing machine was perfect for our stay. One thing that stands out the most was the bed…sooo comfortable which made it hard at times get out of in the morning!
The location is perfect. Just 10 minutes walk from the train station and 20 minutes from the center of Florence where you have all the action you need, be it sight-seeing or just wandering around the streets. His recommendations for restaurants was spot on. Highly recommended is Ristorante del Fagioli with the best pasta I think I've ever eaten (besides mom's of course) and Bucca Mario. If you go to Bucca Mario and have the pleasure of having Aldo as your waiter you will be in for a great experience.
Michelle and I highly recommend Carlo's apartment for your stay in Florence. If we could give him more then 5 stars we would. We would not hesitate to stay at his place again.
Thanks Carlo for your wonderful hospitality!
We were in Florence for 4 days in the apartment of Carlo. It's in a good location, only 10 minutes from Santa Maria Novella train station next to the city center, that you can reach by foot or by bus that stops only 500 m from the apartment.
Very clean and comfortable and Carlo is really precise and kind.
The only weak side was the position of the TV which is isolated by the rest of the rooms but it wasn't a real problem with all the things to do in such a great city.
My first stay using Air bnb and with a host like Carlo it was a great experience. Good location, walkable to many of the tourist sites but yet just sitting off the main busy areas (most essential). A easy and straight forward 10min walk from the flat to the train station that takes you to Pisa, Milan etc and back to the airport.
After communication with Carlo and all was set in my home country, I met Petra filling in for Carlo. A wonderful lady with great knowledge! map was provided and she suggested a number of places to eat and visit (her recommendations were great)
My girlfriend and I felt safe in the flat and in the surrounding area. There is a little supermarket about 5mins away and a few restaurants around the flat (we did not try). The flat itself was exactly what the picture looked like, it was clean and comfortable. Kitchen and bathroom decent and the added option of a washing machine if we needed.
Over all a great place to stay, great communication and great location!Was a pleasure
Response from Carlo:
I loved having you and hope to see you and your girlfriend again in Florence!
We loved staying at Carlo's place. It was very close to the conference centre that I was attending and to all of the wonderful sights of Florence. The apartment was lovely and Carlo was a great host.
Pietra! Grazie mille per la Sua ospitalita, (website hidden) siamo trovati molto bene. La casa e molto pulita, c'e l'aria condizionata, che funziona bene. L'ambiente e molto accogliente, potevamo rilassarci di sere. Grazie per tutto. La prossima volta sicuramente verremmo da voi!
This is a perfect place to stay in Florence ! We have stayed at Carlo's place for 8 nignts and we just loved it ! Carlo was a perfect host, helping me to carry my (very!) heavy luggages in the stairs, suggesting us good restaurants and places to see. The emplacement was great, about 15 minutes walk from the Duomo (historic center) and 5 minutes walk from the train station.
We would definitly stay again at Carlo's place if we go back to Florence (which we hope to!) and we recommand this place to anyone. Thank you Carlo !
Response from Carlo:
Thanks for your stay with us Marilou. Petra and I loved hosting you and Max!
This was a well appointed flat and the air conditioning was wonderful in the very hot weather we experienced in Florence.
Carlo had a map for us and showed us a number of places to get groceries and where to eat. He picked us up from the train station and was a wonderful host.
The flat is somewhat away from the historic centre of Florence so be prepared to spend time walking to destinations. Florence is a wonderful city and well worth the exploration! The shopping was fantastic!
Thanks so much to Carlo and Petra for their advice and help. We had a great stay!
Excellent and comfortable place to stay in Florence. The air conditioning was divine and the decor was funky and serene.
Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!
Carlo se alojó una semana en el apartamento. Es una persona muy respetuosa y agradable. Todo fue bien y dejó el apartamento en perfectas condiciones. Lo recomiendo sin dudas a futuros anfitriones. Muchas gracias!
very nice person
we loved having Carlo
Response from Carlo:
Thanks Leila. Great flat for a Great city!
I'll be back soon...
Extremely strictest people, all they seemed wrong , not recommend them.
The flat is really nice and have all the conforts you need and it is 5 minutes walking to the central station. Carlo cares about all the details to welcome you in his flat.
I stayed three nights at Carlo's apartment and he seems a very nice, honest and intelligent person. For example I needed to use the internet and Carlo lent me his 2.000 Euro laptop for three days without a problem :)
