Very Good


Reviewed 23 Apr 2014

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at Casa Santa Caterina. The location was perfect for exploring the city and the accommodation was tidy and was spacious enough for the three of us. Paolo is a fantastic and professional host, he took the time to provide us with maps and recommendations on what to see in Florence, which we really appreciated.

“beautiful apartment near Ponte Vecchio”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2014

We had a fantastic time in Florence and our apartment was perfect! The building itself is 800 years old and the apartment was gorgeously decorated and only 2-3 blocks from Ponte Vecchio and the entrance to the old city. Our host, Paolo, have us excellent advice on restaurants, shopping, and the apartment was complete with a variety of guidebooks and other information.

“wonderful stay in Florence”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2014

We love the apartment. The location is perfect, just few minutes walking from Santa Maria Novella train station. It has everything we need, from wifi internet, washing machine, even coffee. And the owner, Paulo, is so nice to us. He gave us a really good recommendation for eating out and sightseeing.

“Clean place in a strategic position to easily reach the center o”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2014

We appreciated a lot the kindness and availability of the owner who gave us a lot of practical inications to move around city beauties. We had also the possibility to leave our luggage even after check out while waiting for the train to leave. the city is plenty of great places to visit : outstanding is the duomo 'cupola', offizi museum, 'ponte vecchio' and 'palazzo vecchio' and so on . We had the chance to simply move by foot without taking any public means because the house is close to the center where most of the amenities are concentrated.

“Excellent stay in Casa Santa Caterina”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2014

Casa Santa Caterina is in an excellent location, just two minutes walk from the Vecchio bridge but in a very quite little street. The flat itself is lovely, perfect for a couple. It is well equipped but it doesn't have a washing machine and smells slightly of damp but I think that's only to be expected in the bottom of such an old building. Paulo was very helpful and gave us a map and many good recommendations for attractions and places to eat. We had an excellent visit and would definitely recommend it and would stay there again in the future.

“Excelente ubicación cerca Ponte Vecchio, Firenze”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2014

La recepción que nos brindó Paolo, el anfitrión, fue excelente!, muy cordial y puntual. Tanto el check-in como el check-out fueron bien flexibles, acomodados a nuestras necesidades. Todos los trámites y consultas previas con respecto al alquiler fueron claros y sencillos, con respuesta inmediata. La propiedad alquilada, una construcción de mas de 700 años, ubicada en una de las más antiguas y empinadas calles de Florencia, en un entorno increíblemente bello y nostálgico, con un interior totalmente reciclado a nuevo, con todas las comodidades de una estancia moderna, bien decorada y equipada. La proximidad al Ponte Vecchio, unos doscientos metros; con supermercado, tiendas y restaurantes igualmente cercanos, hicieron que nuestra estancia fuera sumamente cómoda y práctica. Festejamos el "capodanno a Firenze", in la casa vacanze Santa Rita, trova in Costa de' Magnoli, y la hemos pasado maravillosamente bien. Seguramente volveremos cada vez que retornemos a Florencia.

“Florence apartment, beyond expectations!”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2014

Beautiful, well maintained apartment was beyond our expectations! We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived in Florence. This was our first but definitely not our last trip to Florence and we will use the same apartment again.

“Soggiorno fantastico”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2013

Io e la mia ragazza abbiamo trascorso tre giorni fantastici in "Casa San Paolino".E' ubicata in ottima posizione,a 5 minuti da ponte vecchio e tutto il centro storico. Gode di ogni comfort possibile: termosifoni,condizionatore,comodo divano letto, cucina attrezzatissima, bagno funzionale e pulitissimo con un grande box doccia. Il proprietario è gentile, disponibile, simpatico e molto educato. Consigliamo a tutti di soggiornare in questa stupenda casa per poter vivere, così come abbiamo fatto noi, giorni indimenticabili. :)

“Sehr netter Service – gern wieder”

Reviewed 8 Dec 2013

Wir können die Wohnung wirklich sehr empfehlen. Alles ist sehr sauber und neben einer kleinen Küche sind selbst Fernseher und W-Lan vorhanden. Die Lage im Zentrum von Florenz ist super praktisch, da die meisten Sehenswürdigkeiten bequem zu Fuß erreicht werden können. Auch mit dem gebotenen Service sind wir sehr zufrieden. Paolo, der Vermieter, war echt nett. Selbst, nachdem wir erst recht spät am abend angekommen sind, hat er uns noch geduldig alles erklärt und viele nützliche Tipps zu Restaurants u.ä. gegeben.

“Amazing host, Beautiful home: Perfect location in Florence”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2013

I can't say enough great things about Paolo. He is a gracious host, friendly and super helpful with local restaurant recommendations and tourist spots to explore. The apartment is beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. The neighborhood is safe, really cute and within walking distance to everything in Florence. Also, while arriving in a taxi to the apartment my friend left her brand new iPhone in the back seat. It was our only means of GPS navigation or calling home, so we were really upset and assumed it was long gone. But when I emailed Paolo he somehow tracked down the taxi driver and returned our phone the next day! Unbelievable!! He's the best. Would recommend Paolo and his airbnb apartments to anyone, and hope to come back again to Florence one day soon!
