Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place. Clean, nicely furnished, comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood just 20 minutes from the train station. We especially loved the veranda with the sun in the mornings. Alessandra was very helpful and responsive to all our needs. She recommended two great restaurants in the neighborhood that we frequented: Santa Lucia and San Jacopino. We highly recommend them as well as this apartment and hostess. I definitely would stay here again.

Another fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've rented from this owner - same building but a different apartment this time. Both stays have been fantastic and this stay was no exception. The apartment is centrally located - within walking distance to attractions and there are a number of good restaurants nearby. We were very comfortable in the apartment and everything we needed was provided for us. Clean, quiet and tastefully decorated. We loved having the terrace and eating breakfast outside in the mornings. Thank-you - we would absolutely recommend renting from this owner to friends and family!

Beautiful apartment with convenience to the city!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our stay in Florence! It was clean, modern, well-decorated, safe, and comfortable. The bus station was a short walk down the road and travelers can easily catch one bus to take them directly into the city. There is a grocery store nearby and two great restaurants recommended to us by the host. The host was professional, personable, and accommodating. She was wonderful about timely communication via email, we were able to add an additional night prior to our arrival, and, upon request, she arranged a taxi to return us to the train station. Our only suggestion is to consider providing some written instructions on how to get places (bus stop, restaurants, grocery), apartment amenities (air conditioning units, trash, etc) and perhaps a city map. These certainly are minor things, but they would lessen the initial confusion for those staying in the apartment. They certainly wouldn't keep us from renting again if we are back in Florence. It was truly a wonderful place to stay!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fab week in Florence. The appartment was perfect for our needs - very modern decoration,very clean and tidy on arrival when we were met by Alessandra. Loved the balcony which was perfect for breakfast and an evening glass of wine.

There is a bus stop less than 5 mins walk for a 5 minute bus ride to the train station and further into the city. Its a 20 minute walk to the station which was fine in the morning but too hot for walking back. We got a taxi the 1st day which cost €12 but the bus is only €1.90. There is an excellent supermarket 5 mins walk but is closed on Sundays - as we found out! We didn't eat out in the area as we stayed in the city centre to eat. Florence is expensive but a few streets from the main attractions we could get a pizza and drink for €8.

I would recommend this accommodation to anyone and offers good value for money in comparison to other rentals in the city. Feel free to contact me for any further info re the appartment and Florence. Finally thanks to Alessandra who was the perfect host upon arrival and gave us lots of advice for getting around the city.

Una MERAVIGLIA!

  • 5 of 5

Questo appartamento è un vero gioiello. comodo per arrivare, centrale ma in zona tranquilla, silenzioso, appena rinnovato con gusto signorile, elegante e semplice allo stesso tempo, con tutti I negozi a due passi, questo posticino ci ha regalato un soggiorno splendido. Arredato con gusto, pulito, spazioso, con un terrazzino che da' sul cortile interno (terrazzino che da la possibilità di cenare o di prendere l'aperitivo fuori), questo appartamento ha superato piu' che ampliamente tutte le nostre aspettative. inoltre il fatto che la proprietaria sia affabile, gentilissima e sorridente, rende questo posto ancora piu' magico! Da raccomandare e scoprire! Provare per credere!!!!

Sehr schönes Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr schön, gut ausgestattet und nicht zu weit von der Florenzer Innenstadt entfernt. Die Wohnung wurde vor kurzem renoviert und ist sehr geschmakvoll eingerichtet. Es gibt ein kleines Zimmer mit einem französischen Bett, wo bequem ein Paar drauf schlafen kann und ein zweites Schlafzimmer in ein weiteres Doppelbett zu finden ist und sogar Platz für ein eventuelles Beistellbett verfübar ist. Alles nötige, wie Küchenutensilien, Fön, etc. ist vorhanden. Unser einziger Verbesserungsvorschlag wäre ein weiterer Hacken im Bad für Handtücher ;-). In der gleichen Straße findet man einen Supermarkt, auch die Bushaltestelle ist nicht weit und selbst zu Fuss ist die Innenstadt erreichbar.

Die Vermieterin Alessandra hat uns sehr herzlich begrüsst, uns alles wichtige erzählt und so haben wir uns insgesamt sehr wohlgefühlt.

Wir können das Apartment auf Jeden Fall empfehlen!
