2 min walk from Piazza di Santa Croce, where most restaurant and bars are located, 10-15min from Duomo, 20 min from train station, 1 min from bus station

The space

In a very nice apartment, with young and dynamic people, the excellent location allows to experience the real florence's city center life.
This is 2 minute walk from Santa Croce square, 10 min walk from the Duomo, 20 min from the train station and 1 min from bus station.

The church of Santa Croce is an awesome middleages masterpiece, with a bunch of good guys resting in it: Galileo Galilei, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Enrico Fermi, Ugo Foscolo, Nicolò Machiavelli, Gioachino Rossini..... know who they were? googl'em!!! Around there, whatever concerns style, great food, rainassance, wine and art.....a paradise for refined bohemians.

Nightlife is 2 min. walk from the apartment, and so does daylife....because Santa Croce square never rests (althought the house is a good hundred meters away from the square, in a really quiet street, traffic is strictly restricted in that area). Don't go around too much, especially when sun shines.... you may fall in love!!!

Down there are several mini markets, and just at 5 min walk distance you can find a supermarket.

And now the room: two beds, wardrobe, closets, a really wide window. Style of the house is traditional, yet modern and really cozy... you can use the kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, iron, phon, living room.

For check-in /check-out time please first ask availability!

HOUSE RULES

1) Taking someone into the house is not allowed (not even downstairs).
2) Please don’t change thermostat settings (19°C), heating is very expensive.

If you don’t respect one of these two rules your deposit won’t be refunded.

3) The 1st day of the month we pay the rent. Very simple, exactly that date, not the 2nd or the 3rd etc but the 1st. If that date you are not home, then just pay before. Please don’t wait till someone reminds you that, it’s really unpleasant running after (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) who always “forget” it.

4) Smoking into the flat is not allowed (even electronic cigarettes).

4) Please remember you didn’t book an hotel nor bed & breakfast, you are just sharing an apartment with other roommates, therefore during your stay no one will clean after you.
You can use everything but you have to leave everything as you found, which simply means to respect your roommates as well as they are supposed to do with you.
If you want to use garbage baskets, you are supposed to take out the garbage as others do when baskets are full, and not to wait someone else will do it for you. As an alternative, just take out yours but don’t use the house baskets. Closest garbabe containers are in Via delle Casine, Via Thouar, and Via dell’Agnolo.

5) Each week one flatmate is supposed to clean all common areas. If you don’t like to clean (as I do), just ask for cleaning service (cost is 15 Euro)

6) Please put dirty dishes into dishwasher and when the dishwasher is full just insert a tablet (you find it under sink) and press start. Dishwasher is much more efficient then manual wash. The cost for tablets is definitely less than energy and water you consume while washing manually.

7) Use your own things such as soap, tissue paper, oil, vinegar etc., don’t touch others things without asking.

8) Be so polite to take off you hairs from the shower drainage, it’s obstructed just too often because of hairs!

9) In order to have fresh air into your room, just open the window widely for necessary time, then close it. If, on the opposite, you leave it slightly open all the time, the heater will warm the atmosphere instead of the house. In summer time, thought it might be hot, consider there are mosquitos, then you better keep it closed while you are in.

10) If you cook (especially if you fry) smelly food, kindly close kitchen door and open the window.

11) You can use washing machine anytime but when you have enough things to wash and not half empty! No wash after 10 pm.

12) Please don’t open the door at anyone who is not staying in the house, whatever excuse they might have (guests have to agree check-in time and can not get in without someone responsible for that). If you let someone in, you will be responsible for any trouble caused.

13) Before leaving, please be so kind to take out from the kitchen all your food/beverages otherwise these will remain there until someone will realize they belong to no one and expired ages before!

13) Business broad band wi-fi connection is available. Fee required 2 Euro/day / 20 Euro/month

14) If anything is unpleasant for you let’s just discuss about that and we’ll find a solution.

I trust my guests therefore I leave my personal things and my computer unattended.
I am sure you will never touch any of them while I’m not there!
Thank you for your respectful behaviour and enjoy your rest in Florence!

Marco's place is very close to the city center. We stayed there for five days and we walked to all the places we wanted to visit. Marco is very friendly and he adviced us some really good place nearby (The Gelateria dei neri was awesome). The only comment I have is the fact that the shower was a little dirty, but other than that, everything was perfect.

Response from Marco:
thank you Laila. The bathroom was cleaned few hours before you checked in, then I guess you mean the shower was a bit dirty during your stay. The way the shared bathroom is treated depends on the "standards" of the guests, unfortunately not everyone has high standards as me and you... Maybe you were not lucky. In any case, as written in the house rules, I consider very important guests feedback and you could advise anytime about something which was below your expectations, we would definitely find a solution (in this case simply let someone clean what was dirty before you use it). Next time!

Marco is a very gracious host and was helpful in giving us personal recommendations for restaurants around the city. The room was just as pictured -- Very clean and well-kept. My only complaint was that there were a few mosquitos we couldn't seem to get rid of. Other than that, we had a great stay and were very pleased with the location of our apartment. Marco was also kind enough to call us a taxi when it was time to leave for the airport.

Ivona recive us very good but the room was a little bit dirty, but she clean it when we requested. The room was a little bit noisy at night it the beds where fine. If you have low budget is a very good place.

Response from Marco:
thank you for suggestions, really appreciate. Regarding making bed it's a choice and for the time being won't change it. As for the soap in the bathroom it was forgotten by the girl who check you in, sorry about that, you just had to ask. Sorry but i'm against anti-mosquito plug, that is poison which we also breath, however it was never necessary before, unless you leave windows open over night (but in that case i believe a mosquito plug would not really help). However really good to know your thoughts, cheers marco

Credo che tutto sia possibile se ti interessa abbastanza, che niente sia barattabile con la libertà, che tutto il mondo è paese ma solo in italia si mangia bene davvero, che le cose belle sono semplici e spontanee.....e il rispetto è la base della convivenza. Rispetto di se stessi, degli altri e dell'ambiente. Credo che la mente funzioni solo se aperta.......vivo nella casa e vedo la mia casa come un luogo cosmopolita di incontro e condivisione. I momenti migliori sono sempre quelli che non ti aspetti!!!!
