Gibby met us with such kindness and showed us some of the local favourites as well as city attractions. She answered all of my questions with such knowledge. The apt is beautiful. It is big and well situated. It is just north of the hustle and bustle but only 7 minutes away from everything you want. This is something we came to really appreciate. Very walkable and very beautiful. Thank you Gibby!!!!!!!
Check-in and check-out were both very easy. Gibby left for us food and toiletries. She also found us an extra, better chair to work with the computer and exempted us from the city tax because we had already paid it elsewhere. She quickly sent us repairmen to fix a couple of issues −although the problems were only partially resolved. The apartment is quite large. Most rooms face a large area between several buildings, rather than the street, so it is quiet except for traffic in the morning rush hour. It is about a 25 minute walk to the center of Florence, but there is a bus stop nearby and the bus gets you there in about 10 minutes. The apartment is in the third floor and there is no elevator. Water pressure is minimal and availability of hot water, in particular in the shower, is irregular. It is not infrequent to have to finish the shower with cold water. The furniture, the bed linen, and the blankets are from IKEA or IKEA-like, of the cheapest range. In winter the apartment is slightly cold, because the radiators cannot cope with the size of the rooms.
Response from Gibby:
Dear Samuel, I would like to precise a couple of things: - The problems you claim were totally and quickly solved; - The flat is large as on the site (100 sm); - The apartment is non on the 3rd floor but on the 2nd and on the site it is indicated that there is no elevator; - The linen is whole cotton, new and clean... the furniture is not IKEA (just two little tables are IKEA) and I wonder what a guest could pretend to find in a flat to rent. Of course not an antique and/or extremely luxury forniture: for this there are villas and 5 stars hotels at other rates. In any case the furniture is new, clean, functional and the same as in the photos on the site. - About the heating, sensations of cold or warm is very subjective. In the building all flats are like my flat and families have lived there since ever.
Perfect stay, from the very start to the checkout. Gibby was always very much on time and took her time to show everything and tell about the neighbourhood. The apartment was just what we needed. Bright, high ceiling apartment. Thanks Gibby, we would book it again on our trip to Florence.
