About Ewa Kowalska

I live in florence for many years,i love to travel and share the beauty of the world with friends and make new connections.For this reason I decided to rent this piece of my heart,where I have lived it myself and to live my city from my point of view.I love animals and hence the name of Ginaguesthouse (Gina is my bussethound)I ll happy to let you discover Florence.

Ewa Kowalska purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Ewa Kowalska chose Santo Spirito

This house was bought for me a few years ago by my parents,we choose this district and this house because:I immediately felt in love,by the peace and tranquillity despite being in the center.

What makes this apartment unique

The beauty of this house is find park within walking distance of home and read a good book or eat a sweat ice cream,getting lost in the streets and find yourself in front of a monument,drink a good glass of wine in Ponte Vecchio at sunset.

Quaint, Comfortable, well-located Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our little apartment, which was perfect for 2 couples! It is located on a quiet street with restaurants very close by and a bakery just doors down from the apartment. Had one of our best meals nearby (thanks Maurice!!!). This was our first rental in italy and the owner made it very easy for us, which is greatly appreciated. Highly recommend! Easy walk (about 15-20 minutes to downtown, over the river, Florence).

Great stay in lovely Florence apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this apartment and it was perfect for 4 adults traveling together. The air conditioning was fixed and worked very well, which was a relief after the hot Florence days. It is located across the river, in a more local feeling neighborhood, which was perfect. It was nice and quiet after a day out in Florence with all of the other tourists. The apartment is very charming and comfortable and we highly recommend it.

Cute but small

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was cute, but a little tight. Wouldn't recommend more than 4 people here.

We had no AC and were promised AC. It was not working and it was not fixed during our stay. WiFi worked fine. Couldn't work the stove in the kitchen area because we were not told to turn the gas on, but after calling the owner and having them come over for 30 minutes to figure it out, THEN they realized to tell us about the gas knob.

The walk to town was about 20-30 minutes away. Good restaurants and grocery stores were about 10 minutes away. Overall, we had a nice stay because we just used the apartment during the night.

Cute place however it could use a refresh

  • 3 of 5

The place was in a great location and we were able to walk almost everywhere. The owners were very accommodating as we were early. The apartment could use a refresh as things were a bit shabby with peeling paint, broken wine glasses and pillows on couch were stained and very worn. There was no air conditioning. It should be mentioned that there is a potential for bad sewer smells which we experienced. We had to request a fan to help move the air for the smell and the heat. The owner was very quick to fill our request. Lots of potential for this place.

Excellent rental in Florence

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment in a great location, easy walk to the sights in Florence but in a quiet area with several nice restaurants on the same street. The apartment is well stocked and nicely furnished.

Fantastic apartment, very well equipped and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4 (2 adult sons) stayed here for 4 nights. This is probably the best decorated/ equipped flat we've ever stayed in- high quality decor, top quality thick towels, soap/shampoo/etc provided, as well as some tea/coffee (for espresso machine), etc. Very good internet connection, air con missing (and was in a heatwave) but owner says they will be installing it.

Owners very friendly and informative- and when one of the fans turned out not to be working, they got a replacement new one within the hour!

Location looks like "wrong side of the river" but whole of Florence is only 20-30 minutes walk across and it turns out the side of the flat is the old bit, with the City Walls, Pitti Palace etc. Also a bit less touristy, so quieter and restaurants etc better value. Tratoria Dell'Orto almost across the road was excellent local restaurant (you know it's local because menu is only in Italian and staff don't tend to speak English)- great food and lunch menu was 10 Euros for 2 large courses with coffee and water, with desert just 2.50 more. Bus routes to train station and Michelangelo Piazza from close by (same road to train station- buy tickets in advance though, any Tabbacheria). Look out for all the organic restaurants and food shops- we found several near the flat and they do tend to have more interesting/unusual fare.
