Very spacious, luminouse and silent room with a historical feeling. There is one double and 3 single beds, 5 sleeps in total. The room is part of a larger house, that accommodates 4 other similar rooms - though the house offers the best of both as throughout the day it will feel quiet as if it's to yourself only, while also offering the opportunity to discuss Florence with other like-minded guests in the evening if you desire.
Porta al Prato area, 15 min on foot from Santa Maria Novella train station
The place is absolutely fascinating for those knowing how to appreciate characteristical, but old. Not for the lovers of modernity!!! Contains pieces of furniture 200 years old! Ideal for foreigners, going more for characteristical than for irreproachable.

Location is not central, but we can say right outside of the boarder of historical center: Porta al Prato. There are advantages of location: supermarkets where you can buy food twice cheaper than in historical center, still there are a lot of places to eat out around, which we can reccomend, quite close to the nature zones of the stone Florence: river and huge Cascine park. It takes me 25 minutes to walk to Duomo from here. But I am a fast walker,-) May be for relaxed touristic strall it will take a bit more. At the moment the room is recommended for youngsters and easy going middle age travelers. We recommend place for young and middle-age travellers We rennovated the whole apartment here and where in the mid February, 2016, as well, painting all the doors, refreshing white wash on the walls of common territories to make it looking fresher and more pleasant for our guests. The appartment has 4 rooms and 3 bathrooms (two of the bathrooms have shower).
Shared bathroom (with free shampoo, shower gel and hair dryer), fully equipped shared kitchen

Recently we have had problems with some guests whom we granted a favour of showing up earlier and leaving their bags before check in time. First that guests begged us to allow them to come earlier, but after they checked out, they complained in their reviews that the flat or room or common territories were not ready by the time they came, no matter that they showed up before 4 pm. Or that they were not allowed to use a room straight away upon arrival though in our welcome message we always say that the room will be available only from 4 pm and they were supposed to read this message before arrival -). So now we prefer to ask a guest beforehand if our favour will be appreciated and if afterwards guests won't complain of cleaning or room not available for them before check in time if they show up before 4 pm. Let us know and we will answer you about you request as we don't want to go through all that once again. Sorry for bothering you with this long description)))
City tax is not included into the price (2,5 euro per person per night first 7 nights)
By law every tourist staying in Florence is obliged to pay a city tax. City tax is not included into the price of the room
Many guests say that other Airbnb didn't charge them a city tax. Still it doesn;t cancel the law. Airbnb informs the hosts that it's not enough to meet only the requirements of the Airbnb site, but hosts are obliged as well to inflorm themselves of the local laws and observe them, it's their own responsibility. I understand that it's not exactly what would be convenient for the guests, but it is still so
City tax is not included into the price
We will need to charge you if we find after your check out spoilt towels with the stains that don't go off, or killed mosquitos on the wall or anything else broken or spoilt
