The flat was as described, comfortable and had everything we needed for our three days stay, with hot shower, comfy bed and reliable fast internet.
Close to the train station.
Mario was very charming and made a great support for all our staying.
I stayed in this apartment with a couple of friends and we could not have been happier. Mario was an excellent and incredibly hospitable host. He came and met us at the station (not even two minutes walk away) and took us to the apartment. He had left some wine and a pie that his wife had made in the fridge. He, very generously, spent quite a bit of time explaining how to get around Florence and how everything in the apartment worked as well as providing a mobile phone with a local sim. He even drove me to the airport after my stay.
The apartment itself was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable and clean. It is a 10 minute train ride to the centre of Florence and was close to buses and supermarkets as well. We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.
It....was.... totally super nice memory with Mario.. He is super kind If I go back to firenze, its not because of firenze but just only because to see Mario! People who want to go florence, Just go his house! Thank you Mario and Anna!!
We enjoyed our stay at Anna and Mario's apartment which was pleasant and cosy, well equipped, spacious and clean, with a comfortable bed. There was plenty of information provided on the area and public transport options. The apartment is just a 2-min walk to the train station and a 5 minute walk to the bus stop. They even provided a desktop computer connected to the internet and a mobile phone so we could call if we needed anything.They generously provided a tasty cake, chocolates, wine and champagne as a greeting and also invited us to their home for a traditional Italian dinner.
We were very impressed and touched by the hospitality and kindness Mario and Anna showed us while we were in Florence. They went above and beyond the requirements of a good host. We would highly recommend a stay at their B & B to anyone visiting Florence.
Thanks Mario and Anna!
didn't go there myself. my husband did. he raved about what a nice place it was, and the homemde lemon pastry they gave as a welcome gift.
Mario was excellent, We liked the apt very much, clean spacious, everything you need to make you fell at home when u are away from home. We would recommend this to anyone.
We were a group of three friends, and couldn't ask for anything more. We were late, however Mario welcomed us as if we have arrived on time. In the refrigerator, a tasteful pie, cooked by Mario's wife was waiting for us. It was delicious. The apartment was very clean, with amenities included. The train stop is really 2 minutes walking distance. It is a great location to meet Florence. We would stay in this apartment the next time.
We are extremely lucky to know Mario and his wife, Anna via Airbnb. They are the best hosts we have come across! Anna warmly welcomed us from the station and drove us to their apartment. We received great tips from her and she made a cake for us, bought champagne, chocolates and ATAF tickets on our day of arrival. The apartment was fully furnished and they even provided extra stuff like updated maps, guide books, print-outs of bus/train time schedules, mobile phone with Italian line, computer, international chargers. In addition, Anna called us the next day after her work to check if we encountered any problems in getting around. We will definitely contact them as first choice hosts in future :)
Mario is amazing!!! The location is outside the main part of Florence but is literally right next to a train which can take you to main station. Mario even gave me free tickets to help me on my way for the first day. There was a mix up and we missed each other, but Mario found me and took me to the apt and even took me grocery shopping...what a guy! This is a great find if you want to feel more like a local and avoid the crowds of Florence. Apt was awesome...there was even wine in the fridge.
I would like to start out by saying that I'm very impressed and touched by the hospitality and kindness Mario has shown me and my husband while we were in Florence. We took a wrong turn driving to the apartment, arriving a little late. Mario was waiting patiently on the street opposite the apartment - I guess he waited outside to make sure we didn't miss it! The next day, we had to return our rental car at the airport. Mario drove his own car to show us the way there, even helping us when we had to stop by a gas station. Afterwards, Mario brought us to a supermarket near the apartment to get some groceries and dropped us off back at the apartment. He even offered to send us to the airport on the day we left Florence! I thought that was very kind and thoughtful of him and I truly appreciate all his help! Thanks again Mario!! You're the quintessential host, generous, thoughtful and ever considerate of your guests' needs. You've made my stay in Florence a wonderful experience!
Now for the apartment review proper:
It is well located in the quiet suburbs of Florence, about 10-15 mins drive from the airport. There's a big public carpark diagonally across the apartment where you can park for free. The city can be conveniently reached by bus or train as well. Florence Castello train station is less than 5 mins walk away and a 10 min train ride brings you to the Santa Maria Novella train station. There are also 2 buses (about 5-10 mins walk) which will take you into the heart of Florence in half an hour (Mario has helpfully indicated train and bus timetables in the apartment).
Overall the apartment is pleasant and cosy, and comes with air-conditioning. There's ample space to move around and the bed is very comfortable. The kitchen comes well-equipped with utensils and crockery for cooking and there are even condiments and some food! Mario kindly provided drinking water and ice cream in the fridge too! There's also a shelf of books, city maps, tourist information and even the latest guide books on Florence and Tuscany which are very helpful for itinerary planning. Besides these, there were also instructions on washing machine use, and information and a map of amenities in the vicinity. All very useful information provided by Mario!
Mario, Anna (who speaks perfect English) and their son were a pleasure to host! so nice, understanding, considerate and patient! thank you so much guys and please visit soon!
