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!

Great Apartment in the Heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5
First let me say that this apartment was exactly as the listing described! After a long day of traveling to Florence, walking into this apartment was like a breath of fresh air. Both the owner (Rita) and Maria the house keeper were great to deal with. Upon arrival, Maria welcomed us, gave us assistance on use of the apartment, finding grocery stores / dining, and made arrangements for check out at the end of the week. If we visit Florence again in the future, we will definitely try to arrange to stay here. For future guests, be advised that even thought the listing states that this apartment is located on the 2nd floor, you will have approximately 5 flights of stairs in which to ascend (with your luggage). Also, on your day of arrival you should be aware that the apartment entrance is located on a small, one way back street. The door is a very large (and intimidating) solid wood mid-evil style entrance with only a number posted next to it to give you a clue that this is the entrance along with an entrance buzzer to the side that does have a matching name to that of the instructions that Rita will give you upon booking of the apartment. Europeans may be comfortable with this appearance, but for Americans, it may shake your faith a little on the legitimacy of the rental. Don't let this rattle you as it will all work!

The only improvement we would offer for this apartment would be in reference to the wireless internet router. This apartment has an electricity management system where upon leaving the apartment, the removal of the front door key from its designated holder will kill all power in the apartment with the exception of a few essential users (kitchen area and laundry). However, this does shut down the wireless internet router. As a result, upon return, the users must all re-log into the system. This creates more of a convenience issue more than anything else, but it would be nice if the users did not have to re-enter log in passwords every time they return to the apartment.

We would recommend this apartment to everyone visiting Florence and is looking for a top notch place to stay during your visit!

Stunning apartment, perfect location…

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place to stay when in Florence! We loved our time in the Ginori Apartment. The apartment was decorated beautifully and had every amenity we could want. Better than any luxury hotel. The apartment is as stunning as it looks online. Marble, velvet, sparkling chandeliers, perfectly clean…perfect representation of the style and elegance of Florence. Spacious and so chic! We toured the sites,most of which were less than 10 minutes away, and in the afternoon would go back to our quiet and lovely terrace for a glass of prosecco and a nap to prepare for a fun night out. Perfect location! We were in the middle of all the activity but the apartment was very quiet.
Rita and her assistants were so helpful. We even had a fresh orchid delivered one day! We will definitely go back to Florence and we will, absolutely, stay at the Ginori apartment over and over again!

The apartment is beautiful, well-appointed, and very comfortable for 4 adults and 2 teenagers. The location was great and well within walking distance of sites and the train station. We stayed in the apartment in August, and the air conditioning worked beautifully. Our dealings with the owner were very pleasant and hassle free. I would definitely stay again, and I highly recommend this apartment for any families with older children or couples.

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!

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.
