The space

PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION: it helps us to give us the best hospitality and you to avoid last second surprises :)

This apartment features a bedroom with super comfy bed, ideal for two people or a solo traveler :)

The bedroom is included in a very spacious apartment, filled with natural light, at the second floor of an antique building, which means that no lift is available.
In the absolute center of Firenze (Florence), this apartment sits at few steps from the major attractions and point of interest of the city:
150 mt from the Central Market, where you can enjoy a pleasant atmosphere while tasting Tuscan specialties; 400 mt from Duomo square, from where all the streets starts to connect you to all the most beautiful and most seen places in Florence: Signoria’s square, Ponte Vecchio, Repubblica’s square, Santa Croce, Sant’Ambrogio and so on.
Due to the proximity of the central station (700 mt), from which all the regional, national trains, buses and trams leaves, it is very easy to visit other areas of the city or other cities in Tuscany or in Italy, also for a one or half day trip. In the radius of 200 mt from the apartment you could find: wine shop (our favourite), supermarket (ground floor of the same building we live in), tabacconist, pharmacy, laundry and shops of any kind. The room is 18mt2 with a high ceiling, two wide windows which fill up the room with lots of natural light, but they also have shutters that will keep the light completely out if you want. A 32” TV (old kind), air conditioning, wi-fi 24/24. The bathroom, shared with Lorenzo, it is placed next door to your bedroom and it is furnished with hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner and soap. You can use the full equipped kitchen as you please and will find stoves, pans, pots, coffee machine, oven and microwave. Moreover you can enjoy the lounge room. The linens, both for the bedroom and the bathroom, it is furnished. The use of the laundry is possible after request.

The building is easily reachable:
- by train, from SMN train station (central station of Firenze): 7/8 minutes by foot
- with the car: 15 minutes with ideal conditions of traffic from the exit of the highway (though keep in mind that you’ll have to park outside the city center, or in a paying garage in the center)
- from the airport: 15 minutes with a cab or 30/35 with the bus.
In the email of confirmation, once your trip is closer, we will give you details depending on your arrival in order to make it easier for you to reach us.

We can also help organising your trip with suggestions and/or proposal or reserving some of your tours.
Price per night: from 35 euros per night depending on the season and much more (check calendar for prices and availability).

We accept couples of any kind, single and families, preferably with a verified profile and that will respect the few rules of the house.

THE BEST WAY TO VISIT A CITY IS TO HAVE SUGGESTIONS FROM WHO LIVES IT ON A DAILY BASIS. ENJPY SHARING THE APARTMENT WITH LORENZO!! We love Firenze and we love to share our knowledge on the city and our favourite places with our guests. :)

Guest access

Feel free to use both the kitchen, fully equipped, and the living room with dining table and comfy big couch.
Please let us know if you want to do something special, like cooking class or tours and we can address you to the cool ones we know :)

Interaction with guests

We love spending time with our guests, sharing our knowledge on the city that we are living in and having a chat.
But if privacy if what you are looking for, we won't intrude and respect that. As you can read from our profile Lorenzo is the one now living in this apartment, but with Nada we help each other. So you might meet one of us or both :) And we live in the same building :)

Other things to note

As stated in the details, the apartment is on the second floor (third for US) of an antique building. Which has no lift.....good to keep ourselves fit after trying all the yummy food Italy and Florence has to offer:)

If you want to do something different like tour, wine experience or know about events, let us know and we will help you reserving too.

As for council law we are required to write down all the details of you ID card or passport (we could take a picture to make it faster) either way details will be erased after your stay. Plus we are required to collect a council tax of 2,5 euros per night per guest in cash, some exception are considered.

Lorenzo's place was great! Extremely easy to find from the train station especially with Lorenzo's instructions. Upon arrival Lorenzo went through a map and suggested lots of nice locations and restaurants for us to visit that catered to our needs. It is hard to express how much we appreciated the location of Lorenzo's place! The mercato centrale is just round the corner and everywhere we wanted to go was within a 25 minute walk. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in the amazing city of Florence.

STAY HERE! We we arrived Nada sat down and gave us a map and explained where things were such as tourist attractions, restaurants and gelato. She was vey informative. We also received a welcome gift of white wine and took that with us to watch the sunset. My mum got sick whilst we were here and Nada helped us communicate with the doctor and was very accommodating. (The doctor was making two house calls per day). Nada always replied quickly to my texts about various things like where to find a puzzle ring. The house is modern and very clean. Would stay here again. Central to everything. They had even the little things such as a toaster and world travel adaptor. There are 75 steps from the street to the front door - be mindful packing your suitcase. Well worth it!

Lovely hosts, made me feel very welcome. The room has space and an aircon that works very well. Lorenzo and Nada took the time to explain good places to go to and I had a great time following their recommendation. They even helped me order a taxi when leaving. Can't go wrong meeting them :)

Lorenzo and Nada are down to earth people! Friendly and very hospitable. Lorenzo recommended a few good restaurants and I managed to find and try some of them! The place is clean and spacious and looks exactly like the photos and as described. No surprises! The location is very central, about 10 mins stroll to the Duomo!

Nada was quick to respond to our emails and questions before we arrived and sent us helpful information and directions to the apartment. Lorenzo is a good host, helpful and friendly, the room is a great size and the apartment and bathroom felt like our own space, we had it to ourselves most of the time. It's a nice apartment in a great location, easy to get to from the station, near all the wonderful locations to see in Florence and restaurants etc. Bed roomy and comfortable. Happy to recommend this host and this apartment to other travellers.

We stayed at Lorenzo's for 2 nights. It was our best airbnb experience ever! House is located right in the city centre, with all restaurants and sight-seeing locations within walking distance. Excellent connectivity through bus as well. City parking can be expensive, so advisable to park the car outside the city limits. Lorenzo is an amazing host! He took half an hour and laid down in delightful detail his recommendations for food and sight-seeing! Totally totally recommended!
