I and 5 of my best girlfriends just spent a fabulous 2 weeks in this apartment. The front of the apartment is on Guicciardini Street and is quite noisy (Florence never seems to sleep), the back bedrooms are much quieter. Just be sure and bring some earplugs! Mery, our host, was very helpful with any questions we had and made us feel very welcome. She gave us 3 sets of keys which was appreciated. The apartment was clean and all the beds were comfortable. The kitchen had all the comforts of home. Be prepared to buy all your own paper products (coffee filters, toilet paper, paper towels, napkins). We also bought dishwasher soap while there. We brought our own coffee and filters (cone type) with us. The location of this apartment is excellent for getting to all the major areas of the city on foot. The train station was about a 20 minute walk. The Pitti Palace was about a half block away. We flew into the Florence airport and took a taxi to the apartment (about 23 euro) and Mery called and arranged for a taxi to pick us up for our return to the airport (about 28 euro). Don't know why it cost more to leave except that it was awfully early. We had to leave for the airport at 5:45AM and the taxi was right on time. The airport was very crowded, so if you fly out around 7:30am, plan on getting to the airport 2 hours early! There is a close neighborhood grocery ran by a very friendly old man and his wife. They don't speak english but our limited Italian worked ok. There was an internet cafe and pay phone close by also. We had a bit of a search for a SIM card for our cell phone, across the bridge and past the covered market, two blocks then go left (I think) was a cell phone store (TIM). We just returned to them every time we wanted to buy more minutes. They do not speak English! Mery also recommended a nearby restaurant (4 Lions) that was very good. Great art in the Pitti Palace! If you need a 3 bedroom place, this is it! Have a great vacation.

Great Flat!

  • 5 of 5
Right off the Ponte Vecchio, easy walks to all of the attractions in Florence. Beautiful apartment with a small balcony that is a nice outdoors space to have a glass of wine. Clean apartment, comfortable beds, nicely equipped kitchen, ceiling fans that cool well. Very secure entry way - one locked gate after hours, locked door for the stairway/elevator access and then a deadbolt on the apartment door. Rolatens on the windows. Incredible value for such a nice 3 bedroom/1.5 bathroom in a perfect location! Thanks Mery!

Great location and roomy!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect location to walk to all activities in Florence. We had children and grandma and they did not have any problems. Very roomy apartment for the 6 of us. We stayed in Europe for 21 days and rented 7 different places. This one was the best for room, location and a great hostess. Nice size kitchen also as it had a room dedicated to just kitchen. While other places were combined with a living room etc. Safe neighborhood and safe building. I highly recommend a stay with Mery as your hostess!!!

Large, Awesome Location Apt

  • 4 of 5
I was travelling with my 3 sisters and had a lovely 5 day stay at this apt. Location is perfect for walking to all the highlights in Florence. Mery B was helpful and charming host. Apt is good size 3 bedroom apt, nicely appointed kitchen with laundry and dishwasher. Cute balcony over looking the inner court yard above the Pottery Shop. Court yard bedroom is very quiet. I would highly recommend this apt. Thanks Mery for making our trip so memorable.

In the Heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful apartment in the heart of Florence. Our family of 6 just rented it. It's a short ride from the train station. It's 2 to 3 minutes walk from the Ponte Vecchio and 3 to 4 to the Pitti Palace. The apartment building is very secure (behind two locked gates). Mery is a wonderful hostess. Very friendly and helpful. She booked a great cooking class for us. The apartment doesn't have air conditioning but it does have fans over very bed which are great and kept us cool in the July weather. I'd recommend this rental to anyone going to Florence.
