About the Homestay
Are you searching for a place to enjoy the city from a local perspective?
Welcome at Savino's, a REAL homestay experience! :)
In my own and completely renovated apartment I have two extra rooms for those people who want to try a different kind of homestay: I love interacting with my guests, give them a lot of tips about this beautiful city and especially make them feel at home, staying in my place is not just like renting an anonymous room and nothing more. :)
You'll find blankets, sheets and pillows, all the necessary for a good rest.
You can use the kitchen if you want, just ask me how it works. Italian breakfast is included in the price (available coffee, tea, milk, biscuits, corn flakes, jam, nutella, melba toast and bread).
Free wi-fi and hot water 24 hours.
I'll give you the keys of the apartment so you can freely come in-out without any problem. No curfew and no cleaning fees.
My flat is at the 2nd of a 6 floors building, with elevator.
PLEASE NOTE: 3rd guest € 10 more per night.
Tourist tax € 3 per day, per person, it is NOT included in the price you see here on the website.
From Monday to Friday check-in after 4.40pm (due to my work, there's the luggage deposit at the train station if you need it), totally flexible during weekends. Check-out always flexible, I don't like to kick people out if they want to sleep longer.. ;)
Considering you'll share the apartment with me I'd really appreciate if you send me some informations about you, with whom you are travelling, your travelling purpose, etc. Thanks :)
Any question you have don't hesitate to contact me, ciao!

I loved my stay at Savino’s home! I never caught pubic transport as I preferred to walk, but the apartment is in a convenient place with a short walk to the bus, tram and the main train station SNM. Savino is a gracious host who gave me many great recommendations of where to eat and good spots to take photos. The room is spacious and very comfortable. I would highly recommend staying with Savino! I will definitely book again the next time I’m in this beautiful city! Thanks for the great stay!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Eravamo in due e siamo state benissimo. La casa è pulita e fornita di ogni cosa. Savino è stato disponibilissimo ed accogliente, ci ha lasciato libere di preparare la colazione con una gran varietà di prodotti (succhi, marmellate, caffè,...). L'host perfetto, senza dubbio.
Savino was very welcoming and provided us with a lot of information on local places to visit as well as his favourite eating places. Good location - easy access to tram.
Ich war ein paar Tage bei Savino und schon in voraus hatte uns schon geholfen mit Tipps und Empfehlungen..
.er ist ein super Gastgeber,ist genau so wie Zuhause sein. Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber,modern und komfortable. Super Lage, von Bahnhof und Stadt sehr nah. Vielen vielen dank für alles.

Savino is a very nice and polite person. I enjoyed my time at his place very much. He gave me a lot of good tips how to discover the City. The apartment is in a safe area and relatively near to the Downtown, 10 minutes with bus and 25 minutes on foot. Thank you very much for everything, Savino. Auf Wiedersehen.
Kind host and place as home, thanks so much Savino! 100% recommended.
We had a great time in Firenze
The room is clean and spacious and Savino is very welcoming
We recommend !!
Outre l’accueil chaleureux de Savino et auprès de chaque membre de notre famille nous avons apprécié ses nombreuses indications et bons conseils pour découvrir les beautés de Florence et nous régaler de la meilleure gastronomie familiale italienne. Merci encore!
Savino is a lovely friendly young man and enthusiastically and carefully orientated us within minutes of arriving with a map and tips of best things to see and places to eat. The area he lives in is very handy to the train, buses and centre of town. The room and apartment are beautifully clean, welcoming and quiet. Savino is a true GEM and we encourage future travellers who enjoy meeting genuine caring locals to book with him and enjoy his warm hospitality and valuable local knowledge. He also went beyond the call of duty and with great patience helped us with our travel plans for which we are eternally grateful. Thank you and maybe we will see you in NZ sometime....
