Paola is a charming, thoughtful, empathetic, intelligent, helpful, warm human being who goes out of her way to make one feel comfortable and at home. I really felt I had made a friend during my delightful stay at her lovely apartment.
She made me feel part of her family and I was most comfortable in her very well maintained home. My room was absolutely PERFECTLY LOCATED!!!!! Just steps from Santo Spirito where there is a wonderful flea market once a month, and open markets with great restaurants every day. I would prefer to spend a future visit with Paola rather than stay at the most expensive hotel in Firenze!!!!!!! When I come back to Florence I will definitely try to book her beautifully decorated room again. ABSOLUTELY NO COMPLAINTS! I had a wonderful stay with Paola, who is a very conscientious and careing host.
