      We wanted a local experience. A place that was away from the touristy areas yet accessible easily by foot. Casa Pinti was perfect. The place had Florentine style and charm, and Sant Ambrogio has a great vibe with restaurants and shops that locals frequent. We felt like we were living in Florence, not visiting. Carlo is the perfect host - attentive, gracious, and personal. He had maps and a bottle of Chianti for us. He even had a USB stick loaded with kids movies. He stayed in touch throughout our stay.

      Our host Carlo was amazing! He met us on arrival and departure, helping with bags up and down three flights of stairs, and providing thorough instructions regarding use and operation of all switches and appliances. His knowledge of the local area is impressive. We followed his directions for a wonderful walking tour of the city, and enjoyed his recommendations for nearby restaurants and bars. The apartment is very well situated for walking to all the sites in Florence. It was very clean, comfortable, and well stocked with everything needed! The apartment was very nice, but Carlo made our stay exceptional!

      Carlo's place was absolutely wonderful, the location was excellent and it was very spacious just as described on the listing. I was only there for 2 nights but really appreciated him meeting me for checkin and checkout, he gave me some local tips on restaurants (and has a laminated map in the checkin materials), he also provided tourist maps and guides and a bottle of Chianti! He communicated very well and we kept each other updated throughout the process, he was an excellent host. The property is very nice and includes WiFi (of course!), a large TV with Amazon Prime videos, and a washer with great instructions. Plenty of glassware/silverware/etc for eating and relatively quiet area but with easy access to amenities. FYI it is on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator, so pack accordingly!

      Carlo went the extra mile. He met us when we checked in and out. He even called us a taxi to the train station, and waited with us until it arrived. He is definitely a super host.

      Carlo, Thanks for helping to make my stay in Florence so memorable. Your apartment is centrally located for walking around and I enjoyed the comfortable bed for relaxing. You were very attentive towards me and you have an efficiently run Airbnb.

      Carlo's place was very comfortable and conveniently located near the Duomo, stores, restaurants and a pharmacy. Carlo met us when we checked in and provided a lot of information including maps on things to see and do, and a nice bottle of wine! He was also helpful with answering questions as we became acquainted with Florence and even arranged for a taxi to pick us up and take us to the train station. The only thing that should be noted is there are almost 60 steps to get the third floor home and, depending on mobility, age, amount of luggage, etc., those could be a challenge. Overall, it's a wonderful place to stay and I highly recommend it.

      Highly highly recommended! Carlo was such a fantastic host and so hospitable, he met us and gave us a thorough orientation on the city and the apartment. Anytime I had a question, he was easily accessible and responsive. The location of the apartment is so convenient to all the sites of Florence and all within 10-15 minute scenic walking distance. Very clean place and so homey! Would definitely come back again.

Carlo was an amazing host, meeting me at the door, assisting with my bags, giving me a lovely bottle of wine at check-in, and even printing and delivering my train tickets for me. I could not have been happier.

      This place is cozy and wonderful! Carlo was always quick to respond and very helpful with everything. He met us at check in to go over everything, helped us with our luggage, gave us a map and specific places and sights to see, was available throughout our stay, and helped us at check out by getting us a taxi!
    The apartment is so charming and my husband and I both felt like we could stay there forever!
    This is an amazing location, just a lovely short walk from most everything!
    I would recommend this place to everyone!

  •   Carlo was an amazing host for our trip to Florence. The home was beautiful and exceptionally well located for easily walking all over the city. Everything in the house was sparkling clean and the little touches, like the automatic espresso machine, were perfect. Carlo was also very kind in recommending walks around the city and guiding us to excellent restaurants in the area. The home was so comfortable that it made our first visit to Florence everything we’d hoped it would be.

      This location is slightly off the beaten path...and you will be grateful for that in busy Florence. It was quiet. My favorite thing was opening up the window in the bedroom in the morning and getting fresh air in while reading. We had been traveling for quite some time when we arrived, so we were very glad that Carlo could meet us to take our luggage early and then meet us again to let us in at the opening time. He had some great ideas for where to go for food, groceries, snacks, etc. He also spent time telling us the best places to explore in Florence. He also called us a cab as we were leaving which was very helpful.

    We also appreciated the simplicity of staying there. There was a dish drying rack built into the cupboard so it was easy to tuck away dishes after washing. The washing machine was also a big help. The clothes were rung out very well, and there was a convenient clothes drying rack. There was plenty of space to hang clothes in the closet.

    Overall, this was a great convenient escape at a reasonable price with so many well thought out details and truly a superhost.

    Thanks Carlo!

      Situated in a perfect spot in Florence, Carlo’s place will put you right at home. His home is comfortable and has everything you need. Carlo greeted us and gave us lots of tips for exploring Florence. When we had to leave he came to say good bye and called a taxi. I would never hesitate in staying with him if you want to experience true hospitality. Best host ever!!

      Carlo is a superb host! He met us on arrival, showed us a map of his favorite places and walks, and left us a lovely bottle of Chianti. The location is perfect. We could walk everywhere but felt also like the street was quiet and comfortable. We loved getting our cafe and croissant downstairs daily. The apartment was spacious, clean, and comfortable. I highly recommend staying here! Carlo even met us at our 7 am departure to call us a cab.

      This apartment was the perfect place to stay while in Florence. Carlo was an amicable host and very professional. The apartment was clean and tidy with all the essentials provided. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and had good pillows. The shower was spacious with great water pressure and will get as hot as you can stand. The pictures do not do it justice. The location on Borgo Pinti could not have been better. I loved being so close to Santa Croce. I hope to come back some day soon!

      We spent four days in Casa Borgo Pinti and absolutely loved our stay! The apartment is charming, clean and in a perfect location! You can easily walk everywhere from there. We really enjoyed meeting Carlo! He is definitely a super host! Carlo always promptly communicated with me, answered all my questions even before we got to Florence. He met us at the door to the apartment, helped with the luggage and showed us around. Carlo even left us a bottle of Chianti to enjoy.
    He provided us with a detailed map of our neighborhood, which included his recommendations for best restaurants, pizzerias, bars.
    We highly recommend Carlo and staying in Casa Borgo Pinti!

      Carlo's place is a wonderfully comfortable space that was just what my wife and I were looking for when we visited Florence. The place is spacious for 2 travelers, well furnished and decorated and best of all, well situated to the top landmarks to visit in Florence (i.e. Duomo, Accademia Gallery, Mercato Centrale, etc.)! We would highly recommend anyone looking to visit the city to consider staying at Carlo's place. On top of that, Carlo was a gracious, friendly and super knowledgeable host constantly offering tips on places to visit, transportation and was lightning quick in response to any questions. If you're visiting Florence, we would recommend staying at Carlo's place.

      AMAZING!! Carlo’s place is exactly what we were looking for, for our first visit to Florence. The location is perfect if you are looking to be out of the crazy/touristy area of the Duomo, and settled on a quiet, yet lively at night street just steps away. We were hoping to find more places that were authentic Italian and Carlos place provides the location for that. No matter what way you turn you will run into a cute bakery, hole-in-the-Wall pizza place, or breathtaking monument. The apartment is about a 15 minute walk from the Train Station- which takes you right through the center or Firenze- how beautiful! Carlos place is perfect for stretching out a little, as it is larger than typical European apartments. It is air-conditioned, which was a life saver for us in July! What more can I say- thank you for a WONDERFUL trip!

Carlo is a very attentive host who gives local tips and greets you when you arrive, and bids farewell when you check out. If we come back we will try and stay here again.

      I've been staying exclusively on Airbnb for about 8 years now, and have travelled to about 25 different homes but I've not stay in a place or met a host like Carlo. He is a super super super host and we're so happy to have met him. First of all - he's super responsive and helpful via chat. He met us in person and allowed us to leave our bags in his place before we checked in. We arrived during the new year so some of the trattorias were closed - but Carlo trailed us and brought us to one that was opened. Carlo's tips during the trip really made Florence come to life - we were queuing at the best sandwich spots and trying very local salami. Also - we managed to get a perfect view of the Duomo from a secret spot in a public library. And on his recommendation we went to a less popular garden to get a view of the whole of central Florence! The home is much better than the pictures and is SPOTLESS, which is incredible. Carlo's also super thoughtful and have his place saved as a destination on (Hidden by Airbnb) maps! That made navigating to his home so very easy after a great dinner. If Carlo's place is available - please do not hesitate to book it. Also bookworms - be sure to bring a book for a book exchange! Congrats again for making it as a Airbnb Plus Host Carlo - although if I had my way, you'll be a Superhost for life!

      First of all, the host, Carlo, is a very nice guy with loads of suggestions. This was our first AirBnB experience in Europe, and we couldn't have imagined a more attentive host.

    The location was exactly what we were looking for, an older (15th century) building in a more local (less touristy) area. We walked everywhere in Florence and the location seemed ideal for that. It was great to be able to visit the sites with the masses of people and then walk back to the simplicity of our temporary home without all the fuss. There's a Conad's supermarket a few blocks away which we found to be ideal, as well as an art supply store in case you become inspired by the Accademia or the Uffizi.

    To put it simply, we had a great stay with a superb host.

The bed was very comfortable and a nice newer shower. Carlo is a great host and met us in person helping us up the stairs with our heavy luggage and even met when we checked out to help us down.
