FLORENCE AT ITS BEST

  • 5 of 5
We are well traveled and luxury hotels are the norm for us. Even with that background, this apartment impressed me more than even the best hotels in New York. A combination of great space, perfect location, and a luxurious décor is just the beginning. There was an element of professionalism that exceeded even my high expectations. Every detail was considered by these owners, yet it is oddly very affordable at the same time. If you double your prices, I’ll still be back. It was truly an experience of a lifetime. I have never had a better experience….anywhere. Brenda, North Carolina, USA

Owner's Response: Your review gratifies me so much because, beside my care in the things that can simplify the stay in Florence, I put my personal passion in the décor hoping to exite an emotion in the guest.
Thank you very very much for your wonderful feedback, I really hope that you will come back soon!

BETTER THAN STAYING AT A FINE HOTEL!

  • 5 of 5
Traveling with my wife, three daughters (22,19 and 13) and my oldest daughter's best friend, we took a leap of faith when we booked the Ginori apartment. We found it on HomeAway and the only information we had were the pictures, description and the stellar reviews of everyone who had stayed there before us.

We loved everything about this beautiful apartment. It was impeccably maintained, very clean and they thought of everything (AC, Washer/Dryer, Bolt Lock Door, TV wit DVD, etc). We loved the decorations & the architecture was pretty amazing. If anybody ever needs to stay in the heart of Florence, stay here! The price was very reasonable, as we would have had to rent two rooms for twice the price elsewhere in Florence.

For a point of comparison, we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria in Rome for two night for the same price we paid at Ginori...and we like Ginori better!

We look forward to staying with you again in the future!!!!

PERFECT LOCATION, QUIET, CLEAN, AND ELEGANT.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and two daughters found the apartment charming. It was cool, very comfortable (beds and linens of very good quality), the bedrooms were nicely separated which gave us all a lot of room to settle in. The location was perfect, next to a Medici Palace and steps to the Duomo, the Galleria, a fantastic food market. And it was very quiet, we slept very well. We would very definitely stay there again, when we travel to Florence. Enjoy!

WONDERFUL STAY IN FIRENZE APT!

  • 4 of 5
The apt was very thoughtfully decorated and beautiful and we had a wonderful stay at the apt. The bed linens were Frette linen sheets and the kitchen and bathroom amenities were superb.

Only few minuses which we can think of:- it would have been good if there were additional heaters in the bedrooms as we come from a country that is tropical and sunny all year round so the apartment was a tad too cold for us, the shower head in the master jacuzzi was placed so high that it was unreachable and impossible to shower with; and the shower in the guest bathroom could do with more power: it was more of a drizzle and wasn't strong enough. Also, if you are visiting with lots of luggage, better come prepared to lug the luggage up the four flights of stairs as there is no lift.

Otherwise, location wise it is perfect as it is just a few minutes walk to the leather markets and in between the Duomo and Accademia. The apartment feels like a home and it is definitely worth five stars... We would definitely choose to return to this apartment when we visit Florence again!

The apartment is located in the heart of Florence: just next to Palazzo Medici Riccardi, at the corner San Lorenzo Church complex. 

This is an area with a lot of shops, restaurants and grocery stores including the Central Market (Mercato Centrale).

It takes less than 5 minutes by walk to the Duomo, the Mercato Centrale and the Accademia Gallery, less than 10 minutes to the Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio. Finally, it takes about 10 minutes by foot to reach the Santa Maria Novella railway station, the central and most important in Florence.

This excellent location will allow you to discover by walk our beautiful city and its historic centre, Unesco World Heritage since 1982, which is mostly a quiet pedestrian area.
