Casa Rovai Guest House is a place of a family atmosphere, quiet and cozy. Ideal for the volunteer who is looking for a quiet place to stay in Florence while helping us with check-in and reception tasks. You'll have a lot of free time to discover the area while enjoying your private ensuite room.
You will be working together with Stefania the receptionist and two cleaning ladies Olga and Irina. We are friendly and respect each other's space. We don't mind fun but we're not a party place. IMPORTANT: You don't need to volunteer at any shift reception, we just need you to be available to check-in guests who arrive after 15:00/16:00, even late at night or last minute reservation (not often, but can happen). And on Sundays, we need you to be available all day and mid- night if you need to do some check-in like that. The advantage of volunteering here: We always let you know about the check-in time when you need to be here to help us, so you have your free time to enjoy the city in the best way, but you should always be available when you call for late or last-minute check-in. if you are looking for parties and having fun, unfortunately here is not the place. We need someone who is responsible and available to help us whenever we need to. NOT ALLOWED: use of drugs, alcohol, and having friends or strangers to the guest house.
Casa Rovai was my first voluteer experience and it was awesome! Communication is great: before coming Stefania have made it very clear what my tasks where going to be ( because of Covid and low workflow) and also she was always available during my stay. I can't talk about the specific tasks because we have only few guests during my stay but I can tell you that at Casa Rovai you have everything you need (private ensuite room and you can use the kitchen!). The location is amazing just in the centre of the Firenze. I'd love to come back and I definitely recommend it!
Grazie mille Stefania!

My time at Casa Rovai was absolutely amazing.
The location of the guest house is great! just in the centre of the mesmerising Florence. The tasks are easy and very organised.
I've learned a lot about reception and I had the possibility to practice my Italian. I had private cozy room with bathroom.
The people at Casa Rovai are just my second family , they are nice and friendly and flexible.
Thank you so much Stefania for everything! I will never forget this amazing experience. I'll surely come back to Casa Rovai as a volunteer and as a guest, so much love.

Casa Rovai was a great experience! It was a special situation because of COVID so the workflow was a bit low so I had to be available for reservation. The house is a typical old Italian house, very beautiful with lots of art and you have everything you need, You can use the kitchen, etc. You get a private ensuite room. The location is superb, just far enough that you’re not trapped around tourists and prices are a little bit lower. The staff is kind, always in communication. The tasks are simple. I got to travel and go around a lot in my free time. Definitely would come back and recommend!

Trabajo súper fácil! Mucho tiempo libre.
Tenés un dormitorio con baño sólo para vos, lo cual está buenisimo, pues privacidad. Igual que la cocina. Es un lugar muy recomendable si buscas tranquilidad.
Stefania predispuesta a responder a tus inquietudes, me ha ayudado en lo que necesité.. aunque sólo hablé con ella por telefono.
Sarina, la chica que va casi todos los dias y también está en recepción, muy buena onda. Tranquila y también siempre ahí para resolver cualquier inquietud.. tanto laboral como personal. Alta compa! 😊
Nada de qué quejarme, la verdad...
