From Minnesota USA -
Wow! The Senape room is fantastic. Beautifully designed with an amazing energy and artful flare. The pictures are very accurate.'s a 10-15 minute walk from the train station and just far enough away from the exhausting herds of tourists. Everything (and I mean EVERYthing) in the apartment has been recently updated to modern standards. We were incredibly comfortable here. We also found amazing restaurants nearby, thanks in part to Claudia's advice. And speaking of our hosts...they are both (Claudia and Elizabetta) genuinely beautiful and kind. We only met with them briefly, but immediately they showed their true colors...great, great people. We absolutely highly recommend you stay here. We loved this room the most out of our three week travels through four countries and many AirBnB stays.

What a wonderful gem of a place right in the middle of Florence! It was close to all the sights, but tucked away so that it was nice and quiet. The room is wonderfully comfortable, private and spacious for a studio. We were amazed at how lovely and clean it was, and how much thought has been put into making it a comfortable place to stay. Perfectly cool at night during some VERY hot weather, and a wonderful place for a late afternoon cool-off nap during hot weather. Elisabetta's recommendations were great as well - I hope we will be back soon for more gelato!

From Rio de janeiro Brasil -
We really enjoyed our stay in Florence in Claudia and Elisabetta´s apartament. They are great hosts,very friendly and open. They waited for us when we arrived and gave us very good and important tips about the city, restaurants, everything was very clear and organized. It was really easy to communicate with them and they were always super thoughtful. The apartment is even more graceful than it appears in photos, super clean and charming. The location is excellent, close to the center which we could go walking to the main places. we definitely highly recommended! It was an amaizing stay in Florence with great hosts, we hope to come back as soon as possible and stay there again! Thank you, girls! june 2013.

From Australia -
These are superb hosts. Elisabetta was prompt, clear, and helpful, and her local knowledge really made our stay in Florence so pleasurable. The apartment is in a wonderful location, is spotlessly clean, and very attractive. We would not hestitate to recommend it, and would happily go back.

From NY USA -
The most wonderful apartment in Florence! I had a perfect stay in the Design Room. The apartment was incredibly designed and felt so special to stay in. It was like I was in a comfortable and super chic hotel.
It was spotless and spacious, with tons of natural light. There is a separate entrance so it was very private and there is a mini fridge (with snacks!), a tea kettle, and super speedy WiFi for your use.
Elisabetta was very helpful, gave me great dinner and lunch recommendations and was very easy to communicate with. The neighborhood was cute and residential, and was about 15-20 minutes from most of the tourist sites / restaurants.
It was about a 30 minute walk back from the river, so after a long day of touring, I occasionally cabbed.
I can't recommend this room highly enough as a single traveler; this was perfect for me, but would also easily accommodate a couple who appreciates comfort and style.

From Kuala Lumpur Malaysia -
Elisabeth and Claudia were simply charming and really friendly and welcoming hosts. I am so glad to have stayed in their gorgeous studio unit. They put in loads of effort and attention to details. Elisabeth gave great recommendations for food which was really delicious local food. The location of the apartment was very central and close walking distance to the main attractions and for shopping. When I needed a place to stay for an extra night, they made provisions to find alternative apartments even though it was last minute. I will definitely recommend staying there and will be back for sure.

From Paris, France -
It was a pleasure to stay in this apartment in Firenze. The room was really nice, well organized, decorated and also well located. We were welcomed with Claudia, and it was nice to exchange about some places to see and some restaurant for lunch or diner. We recommend staying there and if we come back we know where to stay.

From UK -
Elisabetta's place was fabulously located near the centre of Florence. Everything was within walking distance to the sights & very close to termini station. The place was clean, spacious & comfortable. When we met Elisabetta, she was so lovely giving us advice on where to eat and has a folder that had all the information with a map which was very handy. It's a great set up she has and much better than a hotel! I'd stay here again if we came back to Florence for sure!!! By the way, the place looks just like the photos! Very modern & new & easy to communicate with Elisabetta :)

From Canada -
Our stay here was amazing. We loved that we had our own space, and that they went out of their way to help us get settled. Their is a mini fridge provided which was a bonus for us, and a lot of maps and reading material on the city.The room is very clean and spacious, and located in a great area close to many main attractions. The place is located about 10-15 min walk from the train station, but it is not hard to find at all. We were very happy about our stay here, and would definately stay here again. We loved Florence!

Gorgeous room that is just that perfect distance away from the crowds. We received excellent advice and recommendations from our hosts - very friendly and approachable! The photos show the little touches that make this room so welcoming and comfortable, including a great range of tea and locally-made toiletries. Much, much better than the hotels we've stayed in - grazie miele Elisabetta and Claudia!

From San Fracisco US -
I loved staying in this lovely, modern apartment - walking distance from the train station and the sights you want to see in Florence. Elisabetta and Claudia designed it well - a comfortable bed with warm comforter, sparkling clean bath, plenty of storage, small table for computer work, and a comfortable chair with good lighting for reading. Windows in both rooms provide natural light and rooftop views. There's a compact fridge (supermarket within one block), electric pot to heat water for tea or coffee, guidebooks, maps, and phrase books, and a binder of (website hidden) maps to recommended restaurants (excellent food!). There's also a stack of Decor magazines to flip through and ooh and aah. I had an easy key exchange and welcome with Elisabetta, a terrific host who stayed to offer suggestions to help me plan my next destinations. Highly recommend you book this place.

From Moscow, Russia -
We enjoyed our staying at this apartment. Girls are very responsive and friendly, we are thankful to match to our schedule during our trip. We were greatly surprised to be given some advices to visit some places (even we were given some maps and detail route), it’s a very important info for people who hasn’t ever been to the city. Great location, took us some minutes to reach the heart of Florence. The apartment is very clean and bright, you will find all the necessary things you need. There is a big and too comfortable bed, after walking all the day it’s the very thing you will need! Hope to come to this place some day!

Everything has been made so you can have the best stay in Florence. The apartment indeed is very well located and it's obvious that great attention has been given to its decoration. Plus, a very helpful booklet is at your disposal in the apartment so you can find nice places where you can eat. Elisabetta was very welcoming, instructions were clear and simple : there is absolutely nothing wrong that I could say about anything during the stay.

From US -
Words cannot describe how amazing this loft and the location of it is! This was by far my wife and I favorite stay in our two weeks in Europe. Everything in Florence is reachable by walking from this location. You will pass by the Duomo daily on your way to other beautiful churches, piazzas, and tasty restaurants. The bed is the most comfortable we slept on and the shower is large by Europe standards. Elisabetta and Claudia have done a wonderful job in creating a guidebook that is in the room. Their recommendations are all great and they have printed out Google walking directions to each location. We ate a few of them during our 3 day stay in Florence. When we come back to Florence we will not hesitate to stay here again.

From US -

From India -
We were already impressed with the pictures we saw on AirBnB and the reviews we read. However, the apartment and the hosts turned out to be much better! The bedroom is tastefully designed and is very comfortable. They also have LP guides, phrase books, maps and everything that you would expect/need on your trip to Florence. I wouldn't even look at any other place in Florence for my next trip!

WOW! This place is a gem! Elisabetta was wonderful, I can't recommend this highly enough!! The room is newly renovated and Elisabetta has thought of so many convenient things to make your stay that much better. You can tell she really cares about her travelers! The room is fantastic and the location is within walking distance of several wonderful things, including the Duomo and the beautiful market. The price is a steal for what you get, don't pass this one up!

We spent a fantastic days in Florence in September in the apartment of Claudia and Elisabetta, it is in the city center near every where, and it's very bright and spacious, and Claudia and Elisabetta take attention to detail and they were very kind to us and always answered very quickly. We loved the advices on nearby restaurants. Definitely a place to recommend and where we'd go back

Please come to Taiwan one day and we'll be glad to host them!
