This was a lovely 4th floor apartment with the most amazing view of Florence. Situated just outside Porta Romana the neighbourhood was quiet and tranquil. It was very well maintained. Absolutely spotless. Two nice bedrooms. One bathroom. The main terrace was off one of the bedrooms. Might be a problem if 5 people are staying. I was alone and thought it rather expensive. However, it could easily accommodate two couples and then it would be an excellent and economical choice.
The kitchen is well equipped but there is no washing machine.
There is no lift which was of no concern to me but might be to some.
There are lots of nice shops and restaurants nearby. The area is airy with the Boboli Gardens close by. An important factor in the summer when Florence can be very hot indeed.
Piazza della Signoria is a very pleasant 20 minute walk away.
Tommaso, the manager, was very helpful. He posted to me some items which I had left behind.
I can't think of anything I didn't like about it. I felt safe and secure and very comfortable. I loved coming home after a tiring day.
It would be my first choice if I need to return to Florence.
The view, as I have already said, is amazing!
