Excellent Apartment, Location and Host!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment for four nights during September and had a great time! Everything was very clean and we had no issues with anything inside the place. Shower, a/c, stove, etc. all worked just fine and it was a great little space to base our tour of Florence from.

The location is perfect. We walked there after arriving at the train station, and many other city attractions are accessible on foot. The Duomo, Uffizi, Academia...all easy to get to! Additionally the supermarket just across the street is very useful for grocery shopping, and the nearby Mercato Centrale is a a great place to hang out and get some good food.

And finally, Carla is a fantastic host! She was very responsive to correspondence and even gave us some sightseeing tips when we met her on arrival. We never had to contact her for any issues, but she provided numbers for herself and the property managers in case anything were to pop up.

This was an excellent experience and we'd love to stay here again whenever we come back to Florence!

Great Location, Charming Apartment

  • 4 of 5
A charming apartment in a great location. You can walk to everything. The service staff at the restaurant next door could not be nicer or more fun. They almost adopted me as another Mama.

Owner's Response: Yes, you can find good restaurants, the central market and shops of typical italians products just down the street. Museums, churchs and galleries just some minutes by foot!

Agosto 2014 Mas céntrico imposible

  • 5 of 5
El trato con Carla fue breve pero perfecto, nos explico todo muy bien
El apartamento es ideal para conocer Florencia y ciudades próximas por su ubicación. En pleno centro histórico, por lo que todo se ve andando y a 5 minutos de la estación de tren y bus. A pesar de lo céntrico el apartamento es totalmente silencioso y perfecto para descansar
Enfrente hay un supermercado nuevo muy grande y multitud de restaurantes
Aconsejo el apartamento 100%

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5
I stayed 6 weeks in Carla's flat, and previously had rented 3 other apartments in Florence for months at a time, so I have points of comparison. One thing my legs came to appreciate is that there are only about 40 steps up to the entrance, while in the past I dealt with 60 to 80. Leaving the building, the Duomo is only 100 meters away, so one could hardly be more central to the major tourist sites. Via Borgo San Lorenzo has very convenient services. Just across the street is Conad's, a high end supermarket that I used almost every day for food and supplies. There is a pharmacy at one end of the short street, and a TIM (phone) store at the other. Wine shops and restaurants line both side of the street.
Despite the heavily trafficked, noisy character of the street, the apartment's rear location completely mutes the outside din. If it weren't for the ringing bells of Giotto's tower or the occasional animated chatter of neighboring families in the adjacent apartments, it would seem as peaceful as a country villa.
The 4 rooms are arranged in a straight line from kitchen/dining area to living room to bath to bedroom. The rooms are small but not cramped. The bathroom facilities were tight but adequate, and the shower never failed to deliver hot water. In the front room, the WiFi signal was strong and reliable. The TV is good and the channel selection excellent, including some English speaking ones. Channel 23, however, was my favorite because it programmed vintage and contemporary performances, from ballet and opera to theater and film any evening I turned to it.
The kitchen appliances worked well, and there is a small clothes washer, but I preferred to use laundromats because of the dryers.
Though the owner, Carla, lives an hour from Florence, she is immediately responsive to questions or issues that arise, like a slowly emptying shower drain. She has a local management group who are timely and efficient when something needs attention. I have found it really matters who you are renting from when it comes to the quality of your experience, and Carla ranks at the top.
I will return to this flat on subsequent stays in Florence, and I would recommend it to my friends who also frequently travel there. It is the best price to quality ratio that I have discovered so far.

En el centro de Florencia

  • 5 of 5
Hola, nosotros estuvimos 30 días en Marzo. Lo mejor del apartamento es su situación, más céntrico imposible, pegado a la Plaza del Duomo. Florencia tiene siempre sus calles abarrotadas de turistas, con el ruido que esto conlleva, pero en este apartamento no escuchas nada de la calle. Es muy tranquilo. Tienes todo lo necesario para pasar una estancia confortable. El internet wifi funciona de maravilla. La atención de la dueña es magnífica, rápida y eficiente. Cerca tienes varios supermercados. En la información hay un error en cuanto a la vitrocerámica pues la cocina es a gas, siendo totalmente satisfactoria sin ningún problema como el resto de servicios ofrecidos que cumplen su función perfectamente. Resumiendo es una opción para visitar Florencia muy recomendable.

Writer's retreat in the Center of Everything!

I lived in this apartment for five months during my sabbatical. I can't imagine a better place to be. The apartment is comfortable and has all the amenities you could want while still being a quiet place to get work done. The street the apartment is on is a pedestrian area just steps away from the Duomo. You walk out of the apartment and you know you're in a city; but when you're inside, it's peaceful and quiet. The bed is firm and comfortable (though note that because this is a very old building, a king size bed comes in two pieces, so you will feel the split between the beds). The water pressure in the shower is great. The pull-out sofa in the sitting room was reported by my guests as very comfortable. The apartment can be a little dark because it faces into a courtyard, but that is also why it is very quiet. Really the best part of this apartment was the landlord. She's very gracious and if something needs repair, she takes action within minutes. I really can't imagine living anywhere else during my sabbatical! You should definitely try it!
