We arrived to Florence by car, so the most important things for us in an Airbnb were parking, and flexible check in time (so we could enjoy our road trip along the way.) I chose this listing because it seemed like it had both of those things. It definitely has free convenient parking in the garden of the house. However the pre-trip communication and check-in were not as smooth. At first the host said there would be a fee if we arrived in the evening, which I did not see on the listing before I booked it. We complied, and agreed to arrive before her latest check-in time of 7pm. However right before we arrived, we were given a 3-5pm time slot and we had to arrive in that time - the host was out of town so someone else had to meet us. This was very frustrating because flexibility was one of the two things I was looking for, so it was not a great way to start our stay. The listing also says it's a short walk to the city center. It's a 32 minute walk () to Palazzo Vecchio from the house. Going down the hill isn't too bad on the first day, but hiking back up after a whole day of walking around Florence was not as fun. The buses don't run directly to the apartment, and do not run too often late at night when you might be heading back. It was nice not having the city noises to sleep, but definitely consider the time and energy involved to get to the city center. Important other things to note: the listing says 'K House' but it is not a house - it is a guest apartment in the owner's house. Based on the description, we expected to have our own 'house' entirely. Also, there is only wifi in the kitchen - not in the living room or bedroom. I asked the host about this, and she attributed it to being in the 'country' - however wifi routers are not affected by country air. The apartment should really have its own router, and not be sharing the owner's private router. The apartment was generally clean, except there were a lot of bugs/mosquitos. This is to be expected to some extent in a country house, but just something to note. Overall, I think there are probably places in Florence with better value for your $$. If you're looking to spend the majority of your time in the city center, I would not stay here unless parking is really important (impossible to find in the city center).

I am very sorry , I realised that you were not able to appreciate being in one of the most stunning places of the world , the street that from the hill bring down to the magic city center of Florence . Places chosen by artist, musicians like Čajkovskij, painter like Ottone Rosai , poets from all over the world . I am really sorry we did not satisfy your standard .

We spent a few days at the K House and Marella was a wonderful host, provided lots of information on how to get around and many books and information was made available for our use. The accommodation was perfect for our needs, the shower was a wow! Loved the location and it was close to transportation and within walking distance to the center. Perfect location, clean and fully functional. Internet was the best we have had while visiting Italy. Would definitely recommend the K House by Marella.

Very nice flat. The walk into town takes more than 15 minutes (app. 25 mins) , if you walk down the Via di San Leonardo. Quiet and beautiful neighbourhood.

We had such a lovely time staying at the K house. It sits above Florence on one of the hills, but is only a fifteen minute walk into the centre. Coming back you can get the bus, or hike up the hill. The apartment had everything we needed for our week's stay. Marella was extremely helpful and readily available for any queries, but left us to our own devices. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to others.

My friend and I had a magical stay here. The accommodation was as comfortable as you can be at home. The aircon is new and kept us as warm as required. Kitchen is well equipped. The shower was the best shower of my life. The bed was very comfortable for us so we had a wonderful nights sleep each night and woke refreshed every morning. Marella is a great host and helped us with every query we had. She also left lots of information on Florence. A map and the location of local Restaurants. She speaks very good English which takes away a lot of worrying when you visit somewhere for the first time. The location is quiet and stunningly beautiful and safe. We could not believe our luck when we first arrived. You will know what I mean when you stay yourself. I highly recommend it and will stay again if I return to Florence.
