Florence Apt Fails To Deliver

  • 2 of 5
My husband, teenager and I stayed at this apartment in July. The check-in process was smooth and our greeter pleasant and helpful – providing several insights regarding the city and opportunities for exploration.

While the apartment has been renovated in an attempt at old world charm, we found the space dimly lit and lacking in functional space. The kitchen is very small with limited storage – making home cooked meals somewhat challenging. Limited supplies were available to us for basic cooking (spices; tea bags, etc).

There is a basement area with a large whirlpool tub that would have been a welcome treat after long walking trips throughout the city. Unfortunately, the basement was extremely damp and musty (this smell permeated the entire apartment) and was not suitable for use in our opinion). We had to run the air conditioner and fan constantly while we were in the unit to tolerate the smell.

The apartment is equipped with a double bed and a single bed that is suitable for 3 guests. Because of the apartment’s small footprint, both seating and space for suitcases and travel bags are limited.

The wireless internet worked well and was very helpful to research information for the next day’s excursions.

The apartment is well positioned (10 minute walk from the train station; 15 minutes to the Duomo). As well, we were a convenient 5-minute walk to the Mercato Centrale which is open 7am to 1pm Monday through Saturday for fresh foods. We didn’t eat at the upstairs bistros.

There are various small grocery stores within a 10- to 15-minute walk and gluten free buns and pasta at all farmacias.

There are many restaurants nearby and right around the corner I' Toscana restaurant whose menu was mostly gluten free. 10 minutes away was The Club House with delicious gluten free pizza. It was 15 minutes to Starbene, a totally gluten free take out bakery.

Overall, I would not recommend this apartment, largely due to the poor lighting and dampness of the apartment.

Owner's Response: Regarding kitchen I honestly think that it is a full equipped kitchinette, not big, but very well equipped. None had enythng to tell about this subjet.
Regarding the smell, We discovered that there was a broken drainpipe coming from the upstairs appartment.When we discovered this the owner of the other appartament repaired it.
Now all is OK and I can assure that we have not bed smell.
Sometims happens.... Sorry again.

Wonderful and Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Great location that allows access to the train station and historical center all within about 10 minutes of walking. The apartment combines great old world charm with modern conveniences. Spotlessly clean and fantastic customer service from the owner. We were a family a five and the facility worked out unbelievably well. Small grocery stores and bakeries are also located near by. Highly recommended and if we are back in Florence in the future, we will definitely try to get this apartment again.

Great Location, Friendly Service

  • 5 of 5
We loved this beautiful apartment in a perfect location in the heart of Florence. The owners were very responsive to all our requests. It is nicely decorated and comes with most of the required conveniences. The downstairs spa is a special treat. The kitchen is a bit small but workable for modest meals. We definitely would return.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot. I really apreciated this review because you stayed in my home 2 weeks and so you really lived the home! I'm convinced that the place where you stay is very important for the final result of the holiday and I think that BELLA is good exactly for the motivations you well described in your review! Thanks a lot again and I hope to see you again with my new wifi super fast!!

ENJOYABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the apartment for 4 nights in late July. The property was clean and beautifully presented with everything we needed for our stay.

The bed was comfortable, and the A/C on the ground floor worked well providing a welcome respite from the outside heat.

The flat is well positioned and close to the major sites.

The property will be ideal for a couple on a romantic trip to Florence.

Buena situacion

  • 3 of 5
Es prácticamente como se describe y esta muy bien situado. En la planta baja hay aire acondicionado, pero no funciona, ni enfria, muy bien y si abres las ventanas para dormir te comen los mosquitos y hay mucho ruido para dormir. La ducha es muy pequeña. La planta sótano no tiene aire acondicionado y huele muchisimo a humedad (deben solucionarlo).
Por lo demás esta bien y cumple su función.

Owner's Response: Sono molto dispiaciuta della vostra recensione perchè trovo che sia priva di ogni fondamento. Al momento del ceck-in il condizionatore era funzionante perchè è stato
provato insieme agli ospiti. Se nei giorni successivi si è bloccato era sufficiente avvisarmi con mail o telefono e un tecnico avrebbe provveduto alla riparazione, invece
mi è stato detto soltanto al momento del ceck-out. La zona non è assolutamente rumorosa perchè si trova in zona a traffico limitatodove possono entrare solo chi ha il permesso. L'umidità lamentata al piano seminterrato (zona relax e jacuzzi) si può eliminare utilizzando l'apparecchio che toglie l'umidità che invece non è mai statoacceso, Infine il bagno non è trai piuù grandi ma ha una dimensione standard per una casa del 1400 e comunque è fornito di tutti gli accessori e servizi. Per quanto riguarda le zanzare, era sufficiente poter riparare il condizionatore per eliminarle.

Séjour très agréable

  • 4 of 5
Nous avons passé un très bon week end dans ce logement très atypique et authentique. Nous remercions Cristiana et son père pour leur gentillesse et leur accueil, en plus ils parlent très bien français!
Le bella welness est très bien situé, pas loin du marché central, de l eglise San Lorenzo encore de la place San Marco.

Owner's Response: Merci. Je suis d'accord que BELLA est une maison vraiment atypique et authentique.
C'est notre point fort. Les clients qui choissisent BELLA aiment les maisons de charme, pas les batiments modernes et standard.
Autenticitée mais aussi comfort et beautée. Le wellness (la spa privée) est en plus quelque chose de rare! Situé dans la partie medievale de la maison.
Sur le placement... rien à dire. Monsieur à deja confirmé que la placement est parfait.

Beautiful wellness home is in the heart of Florence, between David, the Duomo and Medici Chapels. Very quiet and super central location. For those who love the comfort of 5 stars and all the intimacy of a luxury home. The ground floor is a large loft which houses the great room, bathroom and kitchen with two burners, microwave, refrigerator, TV, PC and wi-fi. The original floors, high wooden ceiling and gilded decorations, matches well with the sixteenth century fountain discovered during the restoration. The antique furnishings create an atmosphere very romantic. Down a few steps you reach the oldest part of the building: original terracotta floors, brick arches and large pillars that seem to really take you back centuries in time. Here the large relaxation area (possibly second chamber) allows a swim in the beautiful two-seater jacuzzi's why Bella is a true wellness home, a historic house that blends all the refinement and charm of old buildings with the Florentine comfort and luxury of a hot bath for two
