Paolo's place was beautiful and In a great location! Very easy walk to The Duomo and everything downtown. The bed was very comfortable And it was nice to have our own bathroom. Paolo picked us up from bus station and walked us back to his place. Breakfast was great as well!
The house was wonderfull.
The room have private bathroom and balcony. Also have a good location.
Host is very kind and friendly.
I got warm greeting from him.
I want to say thank you very much
the trip was fantastic in firenze cus of you.
Thank you for everything!
In my short stay in Florence, Paolo was extremely genteel and kind. The bedroom was just link in the pictures, with private bath and very comfortable. The location is good and I could do all things I wanted by foot. Hope I go back soon.
Paolo met us at the train station and helped carry our bag back to his apartment. He was a great host. The space was clean and inviting. Paolo set out breakfast every morning and sometimes ate with us. He was talkative and generally interested in our daily plans.
The other comments about the toilet and shower situation are true. The toilet is very low to the ground and small; the shower doors do not seal very well, so water leaks onto the floor. However, these things would definitely not stop us from staying with Paolo again.
Overall, great experience and a definite highlight of our trip.
Paolo was a perfect host! On the night we arrived he brought us to his cousins restaurant which was delicious. Also to see the panorama view of the city. Each morning breakfast was waiting for us. It was simple but thoughtful.
The room was big. Since we had three people he prepared the larger room for us with two beds. It was comfortable and cozy. It felt like home!
Lastly on the night we left Paolo brought us out to dinner again! The restaurant used to be a prison which was interesting. But the best mean we had was at his cousins. I highly recommend staying with Paolo and you definitely need to try his cousins restaurant! You will not be disappointed.
One thing I almost forgot was Paolo drove us around the city to find a gelato with flavors we liked. The first two we had no luck as we liked fruity flavors. He was very accomedating.
Paolo was an exceptional host - very friendly, easy-going and accommodating. On our first night in Florence he took us to his cousin's restaurant (delicious!), followed by gelato and up to a panoramic view of the city. He also provided coffee and breakfast every morning. The apartment was great - big room, clean and comfortable, easy location near the train station and walking distance to the city centre. Paolo is a really nice guy and we really appreciated his hospitality. Most highly recommended!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Paolo's for four nights and had the most wonderful experience. Paolo is a fantastic host; he met us at the train station to show us the way to his apartment, and he provided everything we could have wanted for a great long weekend in Florence: a small breakfast of croissants and fruit each morning, a recommendation for dinner at his cousin's fabulous restaurant complete with a handwritten note ("Sono ospiti miei - trattali bene"), and a map of the city. Paolo's place is super clean and comfortably furnished; it really felt like home for our Florentine stay. Much more enjoyable than staying at a hotel, and great value too. It's also perfectly located, ten minute walk from the main train station and very close walking distance to all the main attractions of Florence. We highly recommend Paolo's accommodations to anyone and everyone who wants to have a great stay in Florence! Will definitely return for another visit.
This was our first airbnb stay and Paolo set the bar very high. Room was exactly as described: comfy, cozy and quiet. I wanted to say how Paolo took care of all the small things for us but in actuality they were large things! He showed us some local cuisine at his cousins restaurant, took us to a great vantage point to admire how beautiful Florence is, truly above and beyond what we expected and it enhanced our trip greatly. Great guy and a great host, my wife and I recommend him highly!!
Paolo's apartment is only 15-20 minute walk from the train station along a straight road. What makes it incredibly convenient is that the same road leads to the city centre where the Duomo is in the opposite direction! We were given the room with the en-suite bathroom which also had a nice balcony.
As he was busy, he ensured we were well looked after by his acquaintance who met us at the station and brought us to his home. We were given clear, easy-to-follow recommendations on what's good in Florence before setting us loose!
Watch out for the en-suite bathroom though. The toilet bowl is pretty short even for me and the shower doors are not sealed tight so water can leak out very easily. Apart from this, Paolo delivers everything in his description of the room and for the record, has a good wifi network!
Paolo was an amazing host and our stay in Florence was amazing. The place is very close to the station and very close to Florence's center (very walkable). Paolo was considerate and friendly and went to extra lengths to ensure our stay was comfortable. He even picked up from the Station when we arrived. The apartment was clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend his place for those looking for a place in Florence.
Paolo is a great host: he's actually happy to host and help people, he has showed me the most beautiful spots in Florence, he has been really kind to me and provided some good advices to visit the city. His companion, Yoko, is just adorable, and I had a great time with them. I will definitely try to stay at their house, when I visit Florence again.
