We really enjoyed our stay at the this apartment, it is perfect for a couple, really close to the bus, like 2 minuets walk, takes you into the centre in 5 minuets. The apartment itself is an ideal size, its clean its quiet and safe. The hosts were really accommodating and helpful, we did unfortunately have some issues with the wifi however, they did stay to try and resolve this and they also said this is something they are fixing. The shower is not great, as it is like a wet room, but with wood as opposed to tiles and doesn't fix onto the wall, however none of these issues are major. The guys have put a lot of work into making sure the stay is comfortable, leaving useful things around the apartment in case you have left stuff and there is also an iPod with loads of music and wicked speaker for tunes, as well as a little basketball net for fun. Really a great place in Florence for a decent price.
While we did not meet Ken in person, he was always available to communicate with and was willing to do anything to help us out. He and his family are lovely people that were very kind to us. This flat is at a really good price, the walk to the centre isn't bad, only about 20 minutes. We would warn future visitors to not get the bus as we had a very bad experience with it, but other than that, we had a great stay here.
Things I liked: - Bus stops nearby - Calm residential area - The kitchen was nice and well equipped with everything we needed - Ken's mother warmly welcomed us at the flat at 9 P.M. (she came looking for us in the neighbourhood when we couldn't find the building). Things we didn't like : - The bathroom is not only very old and with holes/stains everywhere, but it isn't functioning. The drain must be clogged because during the shower water accumulated in the bathroom and leaking to the hall. Cleaning it up was a pain (this happened on our last evening so we didn't tell the host to come and fix it). Everything kept leaking (the toilet water, the sink robinet). - The electricity stopped when we plugged the water boiler in (it's easy to fix by pushing a button, but we had to find it). - None of the 2 WiFi passwords that were written down worked. Luckily we had our own internet so we didn't complain to the hosts. - despite being well connected, the appartement is far from the center if you want to walk, because you have to walk on the side of the highway, which is stressful. In conclusion, I think this place needs to be renovated before hosting tourists. I know it is cheaper than other places in Florence but if you're making money hosting tourists there is really no excuse for that bathroom.
Ken s flat is a great place to stay for visiting florence and (URL HIDDEN) s 10 minutes bus from the center, very easy to park a rental car.. the kitchen and bedroom are perfect, the bathroom is ok, shower like in asia..Ken is very helpfull!
Although the place is a little bit far away from the city center, there is public transportation nearby; about 30 minutes walking. The appartment looks a little bit better in pictures. The bathroom has not shower, you will have to have a shower literally on the bathroom floor. Kitchen is well equipated with all stuff that you will need. Communication with hoster was helpful and precise. Nice people. Quiet neigbourhood with parking spots.
