Accueil parfait : toute l'équipe est disponible et à l'écoute, toujours avec le sourire.
La chambre et la salle de bain étaient très spacieuses. Les lits vraiment très bons.
Chaque soir une "pasta time" permet de manger des pâtes et de boire du vin à volonté pour 7€.
De la terrasse il y a une vue magnifique sur Firenze, avec chaque soir un superbe coucher de soleil.
Attention aux moustiques très nombreux : prévoir des huiles essentielles pour les soirées et les nuits. Les fenêtres des chambres sont heureusement équipées de moustiquaires.
Si vous aimez la tranquillité, demandez plutôt les chambres donnant sur l'arrière, car celle donnant sur la cour surplombe le point Wifi où les gens cherchent la connexion le soir et les nuits.
Beaucoup d'américains... assez bruyants...
