Why paolo chose Sant' Ambrogio


What makes this apartment unique

It may be interesting to have them from guest review :

"Paolo and his apartment were the highlights of our trip to Florence!. The most elegantly appointed apartment we have ever seen on web - the pictures do not do it justice! Paolo took his time to show us around the apartment and explain how everything works - from the washing machine to the espresso machine and all the fans and everything. We were blown away at the size and comfort of this listing, and we are so glad that we were able to spend our time in Florence in this luxurious, safe apartment.. We hope to return and would highly, highly recommend this lovely apartment to anyone considering a trip to Florence. Worth mentioning: Located in the City center - easy walk to everything, very close to Duomo. 20 minute walk to train station. Surrounded by delicious eateries. 2 bathrooms! Washing machine and full kitchen. Extremely safe building with heavy, secure entry door and lighted hallway."

"I was fortunate enough to stay at this wonderful apartment for over 1.5 months while i was in Florence on Business. The apartment was very well equipped with everything you need to make your stay very comfortable. Located in a great location and close to all the major tourist attractions as well as grocery stores and restaurants. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a hassle free stay while in the historic city"

Paolo was the best!!!! Super Friendly and accommodating!!!! I felt like we were welcomed home after being out of town for too long. The place is wonderful and cozy and has all the amenities you could need to be comfy!!! The fridge was stocked. The bookshelves were filled with awesome things to read :) Ideal location right in the center of Florence and just far enough away from the tourist center to make you feel like a local :) I would love to return and stay here longer

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I enjoyed this apartment immensely. Paolo has thought of everything to make his guests feel at home. He welcomed us personally and took the time to walk us around the neighborhood and suggest places for breakfast and dinner. The apartment was cozy and comfortable and afforded everything we could possible need during our stay. Paolo also took the time to check in with us throughout our stay to see if we needed anything. He was a warm, gracious host. We hope to return to Florence and plan to stay here again. Thank you, Paolo! Francine

Florence with a personal touch

  • 5 of 5

Paolo's apartment in Florence is not only in a perfect location for exploring all the major attractions but also a cozy spot to return to after a long day. He and his wife Anna provide so many nice amenities - not to mention a fridge and kitchen full of provisions to get you started - to make the bustling city seem a little less overwhelming. The neighborhood is full of nice bars and restaurants but still retains a residential feel. We particularly enjoyed meals right next door at Aquacotta and a few blocks down at Trattoria Cibreo and Pizzaiuolo. On our last day Paolo showed us a bit of Florence from above, near the church of San Miniato, and then introduced us to his favorite gelato and canolli place. We really appreciated this personal touch and look forward to a return stay!

Perfect apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we met Paolo at the airport, we knew we had found our 'home' in Firenze. After getting us set up at the apartment, Paolo took the time to walk us around the neighbourhood, pointing out the sights, points of interest, and points of reference, if feeling lost. He also set us up with a last minute reservation at the Trattoria next door. I think the best food in Firenze!

The apartment had lots of everything food-wise to get one started, and in some cases, last the duration.

The He one caveat is that the apartment is a 3 floor walk-up. If you have severe mobility issues, or travel with heavy steamer trunks, you might wish to reconsider. But, even here, Paolo, a very nimble 70 years young, carried one of ours, and helped with the other suitcase.

If we were to come back to Firenze, I would not even consider any other property.

Our rating: a very solid 5 out of 5.

Great place, location & host

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a great location and the apartment is so comfortable. Great comfortable king size bed, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, washer, CLEAN, etc but the best part of the experience is the owners. Paulo & his wife were so thoughtful. They met us when we got to the apartment, helped us with our luggage, stocked the kitchen with fruit, coffee, drinks, fresh prosciutto, cake & so much more, walked us around the local streets & area to show us sites, recommend restaurants, shopping..literally would have done anything to help us or make our stay as wonderful as it could be. Then when we were leaving..picked us up, offered to take us to get coffee & took us to the train station. They even checked on us to make sure we got to our next location ok. Made the stay so wonderful! Can’t say enough good about them.

Comfortable convenient home in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Paulo met us at the apartment and gave us a nice tour of the amenities of the apartment and its well stocked kitchen. He then gave us a nice walking tour of the neighborhood with advice on places to buy groceries and eat out. We especially enjoyed lunch and the restaurant just downstairs. The apartment was relaxing and comfortable and a real pleasure to come back to after a long day of seeing sites. Paulo checked in with us during our stay and allowed us to leave our bags after check out until we were leaving. Paulo and his wife gave us a nice gift of Easter bread upon our departure. Communication was very easy as Paolo speaks excellent English. The best place we stayed in Italy.
