A great apartment in a great location
This apartment was as advertised and more. This was our first trip to Europe and we are most satisfied with the property, its location and amenities. All that was promised was delivered. The apartment was extremely clean and well maintained. It is obvious that the owner is very proud of his property, and wished to make his guests feel welcome and comfortable. Furniture was modern, tasteful and comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and as large as any apartment kitchen in the U.S. Bathroom modern and clean.
Gianni was waiting for us as he had promised. He spent time making sure we were comfortably situated. He provided information on the "workings: of the apartment, especially the kitchen. Indeed, in all our dealings with him, we received timely and accurate information, and always with a personal touch. We were treated at all times in an honest, professional and respectful manner. All that was promised was delivered. He even arranged for cab for our departure.
The best part of the apartment is its location, precisely because it is NOT in the middle of the larger historical area, but easily accessible to all major attractions. It is located on short less traveled street, and that makes for quiet evenings and easy sleeping. It is just a short walk to the Arno River and then a leisurely stroll to such destinations as Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Palace, Pitti Palace and the Boboli Gardens. It is a short walk to the Santa Maria Novella Piazza, where restaurants abound.
In addition you are never far away from excellent modestly priced restaurants right in the neighborhood . Coming home in the evenings is a delight, with much more room in which to relax than you would find in a hotel room. The small private patio is a bonus. Closet space was more than ample.
I can not say too many good things about our stay here. Compared the cost of staying in hotels, I believe we received good value for the price. On our next trip to Florence this is the place we will stay,
