I'm a friendly person and I like to host foreign people from everywhere!
My apartment is just like me: open, cosy and easy (in addition to this I have to say that it has an awesome view and is pretty central ;-)

Bettina was a great host. She was quick to respond to inquiries and made sure our stay went without a problem. We stayed in Firenze for 5 days and the location was perfect. The apartment felt much larger than it seemed from the photos and had all the amenities one needs for an extended stay. Although no wi-fi, you could access it free at the local library near by. Tutto magnifico!
Bettina's apartment is wonderful for one or two people, and it's in a fantastic location, literally in the shadow of the Duomo's dome! We even took a photograph looking down at the apartment's balcony from the top of the dome. Although very central, the apartment is quiet, and the building is very safe and immaculately clean. The balcony is perfect for dining, and the apartment has everything you'd need. No TV or WiFi, but being in the center of Florence, you're not going to want to spend your time watching TV or surfing the net. The kitchen is well equipped, and everything in the apartment worked perfectly.
We created a minor problem with the electricity while we were there, but Bettina was immediately available to advise us, and with her help and the help of Paolo, the very friendly doorman, everything was immediately resolved. Both of them were great and very gracious.
We had nine wonderful nights in Bettina's apartment and can recommend it most highly. Just be prepared for one of the unavoidable facts of Florentine life, the mosquitoes! A great apartment in a fascinating city!
As a couple we very much enjoyed the apartment, view and location for our stay in Firenze (Florence) in September. The kitchenette, table, bathroom and incorporated laundry were perfect for our 1 week stay. The balcony with a view of the Duomo (as in picture), is great, the Duomo is over your right shoulder if you look straight out from the balcony, the view straight is like "Rear Window" the movie, interesting apartments and music at night, you can hear the muted live classical music from the restaurants when outside. We would sit out on the balcony in the evenings and mornings. During the day, we simply walked easily into the tourist areas or train station, the location is great, down a small street with restricted access to vehicles, leads right to the Duomo, or in the other direction David at the academia. The train station at first took about 15 minutes safe walk with cases (later 10 minutes), we arrived late, Bettina was understanding and we appreciated that. Plenty of restaurants and cafes in minutes. We bought our own food to eat in the apartment (breakfast mainly) at the supermarket near the train station, or a smaller place near to the apartment (charged tourist prices). Bettina is lovely, helped us with a heads up on arrival, and enjoyed the only task "water the plants", which made me feel a little at home. Some of the furniture is simple, bed on floor as photo shows, was comfortable. If you lay upside down in the bed you can see the Dome through a small window, that was cool at night. The apartment is quiet, no outside noise, lots of locks on the door strangely, air conditioning, solid feel marble etc, no kettle we found but you just boil water on the stove, guess not popular in Italy. No wifi provided as stated by Bettina, the building screens free Firenze wifi, but if can step outside the front door and sit on the Duomo steps with your tablet, it is a pretty good location to write email.
The apartment is spacious and simple, we thought excellent value and added to the experience of Firenze (Florence).
Be careful hanging out your washing, if it drops off the line it lands on a private patio. I lost a sock. :-)
The apartment was amazing... better than the pictures! Perfect location right in the center of town. It felt very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. The only downside is there was no wifi, but this seems to be common in Florence. Bettina was a great host- definitely recommended!
Staying at Bettina's place was a very pleasant experience. She is very well organised and the appartment is equipped with anything you might need for a great time in Firenze. Nothing to add to the positive comments on the location which is simply perfect.
If you want to have a great basis for your trip to Firenze, ask Bettina :)!
I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 week stay at studio ricasoli!! The location is perfect and you can walk everywhere easily. And having my morning coffee on the balcony looking up at the duomo was priceless. I would definitely stay here again and HOPE to! Bettina is such a sweet host - checking on me periodically and making sure everything was going well. I can't say enough about how amazing this experience was. The only negative was leaving studio ricasoli.
how are you?
I hope to meet you again in Florence! :-)
Great location, good air conditioning, easy going, all good really.
El departamento es mejor de lo que sale en las fotos. Bettina. Es muy amable y dispuesta a solucionar inmediatamente cualquier problema que tengan. Está muy bien ubicado, a media cuadra del duomo. Es altamente recomendado.
Great host. Excellent English and very helpful when we had a problem during our stay. The apartment is in a fantastic location and is clean and modern.
