Living in London, I am renting my apartment in Florence.
My mom manages the check-in and check-outs, while you can contact me for any information.
We had the whole apartment to ourselves, it was clean and neat. Host was sweet enough to leave bottles of mineral water all over the house for our convenience. The location was ideal. Mama Orlandi was the sweetest and most helpful. Wifi was great. House was slightly chilly but plenty of throws and blankets were provided. House had heating available too.
We were a real great staying in the Elisa's apartment in Florence. It's a very nice place and very close to the historic center. We hope to go again there!
Vers Nice place, close to thé city a week-end was just MAGIC. Thank you to Elisa and her mother who was here to greet us even if we couldn't call to tell at what time we were coming. We will go back again
We were really lucky for choosing Elisa's place. The house was cosy and very well located. The shower was amazing!
From there it was really easy to reach both Train station and the old town, by bus or walking. Elisa and her mother were great with us. I would stay there again!
Elisa was very communicative and her mother was there to show us the apartment when we arrived. The apartment is very charming with nick-knacks and personal touches which made us feel welcome. And the apartment is only a couple blocks from the Hertz rental, so driving from there to the countryside was easy! Thank you, Elisa
The location was perfect, near by the center, just a nice walk away.
Te house was perfect, comfortable with everything we needed, and really nice and cozy.
Елиса, очень гостеприимная и дружелюбная хозяйка, я в этом уверен. Проблем с заселением и проживанием не было. Более того, рядом есть пиццерия, где работает ее друг Винченсо, он готовит вкуснейшую пиццу! Квартира старая, но ухоженная, плохая звукоизоляция и с дороги всегда доносится много шума, но это думаю во всех старых флорентийских домах так. За-то очень чувствуется настроение города. Было очень приятно, когда мы заселились обнаружить везде (в каждой комнате) по бутылочке питьевой воды и вино (правда мы так его и не попробовали) на кухне. В целом все очень хорошо, правда сосед с дрелью видимо путешествует вместе с нами ;)
My time in Florence was very pleasant . The apartment is situated very close to transport and its also possible to walk to many places of interest like the Ponte vecchio . The supermarket is also close by. Elisa and her mum were very kind and made me feel welcome. It is a convenient base to see Florence.
Elisa definitely proved to be a great host right from the beginning, with great advices on how to enjoy Florence as a local through e-mail, weeks before our arrival to this beautiful city.
Her mother greeted us at the house and she was amazingly nice, helpful and attentive. She gave us the best advice on how to reach Piazzale Michelangelo (UNMISSABLE) and was so kind - I felt like she really cared that we enjoy Florence.
The house was exactly as described and very clean. On top of it there were some great details that we really appreciated including sparkling and natural water in the fridge and water bottles by the bedsides, towels neatly left for us on the bed, etc. We really felt at home.
All in all, Elisa, her mother and the house helped us enjoy Florence the most we could. It is now our favorite city in italy. Thank you very much!
The pictures placed on AIRBNB resembled nothing like the actual environment.
1. The TV had no connection possible to either cable or free to air connection.
2. The electrical cord connecting to the kettle, ran over the gas cook top (Very unsafe to use)
3. The upper ballustrade leading to the upper bedroom, was unsafe to hang on to. The top wooden step was insecured, I nearly slipped down the stairs.
4. The portable air conditioner unit was very noisy.
These are only some of the unpleasant conditions we found living in this apartment. On the positive side, the apartment is located only 10 mins from the city of Florence, very close also the supermarkets and grocery stores.
These were basically known facts, nothing to do with having the right AIRBNB culture, as noted by the owner.
Elisa was a great host, they arrived on time and left the apartment tidy!
Elisa and her friends were very kind and also great having over.
The totally respect your stuff and home!
The communication between us was also a delight
It was a really nice to meet Elisa. The whole check in process went very smoothly thanks to Elisa responding to messages quickly, however it would have been nice if the room was left to us a little cleaner, this contributed to the experience, on the whole not being quite up to the usual Airbnb standard.
Elisa e la sua amica sono due bellissime persone
