Dream apartment in the center of Florence - BUONISSIMO

  • 5 of 5

I spent 10 nights in the lovely Foglia in September. The apartment is ideally located just a 3-minute walk from the Duomo, and within walking distance to most all the museums and other attractions in the city. It’s also an easy 10-minute walk to the train station, which is also the meeting point for many bus excursions outside the city. When your feet get tired of walking, there’s a taxi stand just below Brunelleschi’s famous dome, and that’s just 3-4 minutes away on foot. There’s an endless supply of restaurants, wine bars and cafes nearby, and the “City Conad” grocery store that’s located the next street east of the apartment (Via Dei Servi) is the best place for reasonably-priced groceries, bottled water/drinks and other general supplies.

The apartment was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the AC worked well. Windows open to the street below from both bedrooms, and to the inner courtyard from the dining/kitchen area. Despite the millions of tourists in the city, the apartment is very quiet for sleeping. The inner solid wood window shutters block both the street noise and the light, which makes for a good night’s sleep. The washer/dryer combo works well and is invaluable – I like to pack light, and being able to clean clothes makes that possible. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking – dishes, cups, glasses, utensils, pots/pans, etc. – but the only thing I found lacking in the kitchen was a good-sized coffee maker. There’s a tiny cast aluminum moka pot that makes about 6 fluid ounces of American style coffee AT A TIME. I had to run the pot under cold water to cool it down enough to handle it, clean it again, and then make a second pot/cup. This was inconvenient for one person, and would be completely impractical for an apartment that accommodates up to 6 people.

As another reviewer said, the stairs are indeed a "bear." As mentioned in the listing, they’re not suitable for the infirm, but they may also be unsuitable for anyone in less than top shape – it was a grueling climb for me (several times each day) because I’m not in shape - and that’s my fault.

Sabrina was nothing but pleasant and helpful to me from start to finish. She kindly arranged for a taxi to pick me up for my trip to the airport the day I checked out, as I didn’t have a cell phone with me. My stay in the Foglia helped make my second trip to Florence a very enjoyable and memorable one – Grazie, Sabrina.

Great location and experience"

  • 5 of 5

After looking at A LOT of options in Florence, I landed on this one and am glad I did! The apartment was in a great location (near Duomo and Academia), was very clean and Sabrina was terrific. Delta/Air France managed to lose my luggage so the only downside was no phone in the apartment (my cell didn't work even though Verizon told me it would) which made coordinating the arrival of my luggage very difficult. Sabrina was very helpful in being the "go between" and emailing the info to me. My advice, if it happens to you, is to stay at the airport or get a disposable phone for the trip.....the guys who run the leather store downstairs were incredibly helpful as well. Give them your business, please!

The stairs are a bear but you definitely get some good exercise. For those of us used to A/C, I'm happy to report that the apartments 2 units won't disappoint. I'd definitely recommend staying here. Enjoy your time in Florence! It's a wonderful city.

Location, location, location

This is a great apartment for anyone who wants to be within walking distance to museums, restaurants, & shopping. The apartment is modern, clean, & tastefully furnished. The beds are comfortable & the linens lovely. Oh, and the washer/dryer combo is a plus, although we chose to dry our clothes on the clothesline. The building has no lift, so you have to be physically able to walk up 52 steps. We looked at it as good exercise.

Sabrina, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful, prior to and upon our arrival. She treated us more like friends.

Apartment in a Splendid Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time in Florence and it was complemented perfectly with Sabrina's comfortable apartment. The location of this apartment is really awesome and we could easily walk to the Duomo and to the Academia on one side and all the way up to the Uffizi Gallery on the other side.

Sabrina was waiting for us on-time upon arrival and even helped us with our luggage up the stairs to the 3rd floor. She is a very responsive host and very quickly replied all my text messages to her when I needed extra info/help.

We stayed in 3 different apartments during our trip to Italy and France and I would say that this apartment had the best shower! Powerful and never runs out of hot water which was a blessing after a day out in the cold walking around from morning to night.

The entire apartment was very clean & spotless and big enough & comfortable for the 3 of us and we never had any complains during our stay there. Lots of places to eat around the area, so you will never go hungry. Sabrina even kindly organized a taxi to pick us up during departure. Thanks for everything Sabrina and we hope to come back to Florence soon! I totally recommend this apartment 100%!

A beautiful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were four adults for a stay of 4 days in Florence. Sabrina was waiting for us at her apt.

She was very nice even when we send e-mails for the reservation. The location was super!

All the important places was near the apt. The apt was confortable and warm...so well decorated. We recommand so much this lovely apt! We can walk from the railway station.

Thanks

Great Visit

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great three days in Florence and surrounding region. Sabrina was wonderful. She was EXTREMELY patient with me given the situation when we arrived. We had not arranged to get Euros prior to arriving in Florence, and she walked around Florence for an hour with my wife and I while we attempted to find a bank that could provide us with money. I'm sure she was aggravated, but was very gracious. The apartment was in a great location. Convenient to all sites. Reviews provided by others are spot on. Hope to come back someday. Buon Anno Nuovo, Sabrina!
