HEART OF FLORENCE- CHIC SAFE STREET - LIFT+VIEW- QUIET APT WITH 2 BALCONIES!

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Duomo panoramic apartment in the most central and safest location!

This super comfortable quiet apartment is in the elegant and vibrant Via Roma, a short street between the Baptistery and Piazza Repubblica, in front of fashion store Luisa Via Roma, next door to the Savoy Hotel and to boutiques like Gucci, Prada and Miu Miu and the historic caffe Gilli. One block away from the Duomo and the new Hard Rock Cafe.

At the same time very central and quiet, as the apartment is located on the backside of the building, where the only noise heard is the bell chime of Giotto's bell tower.

If you climb up Brunelleschi's Dome or Giotto's Bell tower, you can easily take pictures of the balcony and the windows of the apartment.

The apartment is on the 4th floor of a building erected by architect Giuseppe Rossi in 1892, with a concierge and a step-free elevator. Completely on one level.

Fully renovated with parquet floors, it is bright, spacious and well distributed. The master bedroom has a queen bed, a large cabinet and a balcony with a stunning view. The second bedroom has new twin beds, which can be made up to form a comfortable double bed, a chest of drawers and a large window with a view. The bathroom with window, situated between the bedrooms, has a huge shower with a new marble floor and a crystal cabin.

The spacious living room has a top quality Italian sofa for lounging, that opens to become a comfortable queen bed, besides a large armchair and a Sat Tv screen. The dining table opens up to seat up to six people.

The kitchen is compact and has a small window. It features top-of-the-line appliances including gas stove, dish washer and microwave oven, fridge and lots of cabinet. It is fully equipped with coffee machines, toaster, pots, pans, dishes and wine glasses.

All major churches and museums are nearby: the Baptistery and the Duomo are around the corner, Accademia with Michelangelo’s David is 5 minutes away, like Medici Chapels and Libraries and St. Mark’s church and museum. Looking to the river Arno, Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Bargello, Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and Boboli Garden.

Train and bus stations are easy 10 minutes’ walking distance, for day-trips to Pisa, San Giminiano, Chianti, Siena, Cinque Terre or the sea.

Restaurants, shops, cafes, bakeries and wine shops abound in the neighbourhood. The enchanting food halls of the Mercato Central are just a few minutes away.

I grew up here and I'm now honoured to be able to offer the apartment we renovated for our family who live abroad, to those travellers who wish to discover the Florence of the real Florentines and the best tips of my hometown

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1968

My father bought the floor to be our family home, because he had fallen in love with the view, light and quiet of such an unbeatable practical location with all comforts of elevator and concierge. Our family still lives in this property and in case that gives you the benefit of a 24 hours assistance.

View from both bedrooms and balcony is simply breathtaking, especially at night! You can lie on the bed and enjoy the view!

Location ideal, safe central and prestigious, and at the same time very quiet to take a pause between morning and afternoon outings.

The Medical service of Florence is in the building. They accept all major, travel/medical insurance policies. http://www.medicalservice.firenze.it/

PERFECT FOR OUR NEEDS

  • 5 of 5
We were three ladies from Canada that stayed in Florence for a week, then went on a self-guided walking tour in Tuscany for a week and back to Florence for a few days before going home. I looked at many rentals, but settled on this one. The owner, Irene, was helpful right from the start. She answered my many questions promptly by e-mail. I phoned her & had a very nice conversation with her. She also got me in contact with a gentleman from Chicago that I phoned. I was very nervous to send a bank transfer, but I took precautions and we were very pleased with the outcome. Our plane was delayed, but Irene graciously met us at the apartment & welcomed us. She showed us how everything worked and there were written instructions for those of us who needed reminders. Irene was very accommodating. She went out and bought a coffee maker as I had specifically asked if there was one. The kitchen is definitely small. We didn't care. We had our coffee and light breakfast there. We also had snacks and drinks there. One night we cooked pasta, but the rest of the time, we ate out. I mean...that's the best part of Italy, isn't it? Food and wine! The bathroom was wonderful. Wish I had all that marble tile at home. The air conditioning was a welcome relief. Sometimes, we just had the big windows open and there was nice fresh air coming in. I had read about mosquitos, but we didn't see any! The washing machine on the balcony was great for us. Especially after coming back from the one week walking tour! The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have a closet and drawers to put our clothes in. There was a problem with Wi Fi, but Irene's son sorted it out. The location could not have been any better. We walked everywhere. Some highlights were cooking school, Cinque Terre day trip, train trip to Venice, shopping, museums, and did I mention eating and drinking wine? I will always remember this trip with fondness. Irene and her apartment share a big part of this wonderful memory.

PERFECT FLORENCE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Florence in a beautiful and completely secure building. Irene was such a gracious and helpful host who went out of her way to make us feel welcome and completely at home in her lovely apartment. Her recommendations for places to eat were wonderful!

We stayed in Florence for six days with our two teenage children. Everything was readily available in the apartment with all the major sights either literally on the door-step or a pleasant short stroll away.

We would thoroughly recommend this apartment and can't thank Irene enough for her hospitality and kindness.

WONDERFUL TIME IN A BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We booked this Apartment back in May of 2012, and were so happy with everything! Irene (Ee-ren-eh!) was so hospitable and kind, and introduced us to a great selection of restaurants, and the apartment was extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated with beautiful vertical windows with streaming sunlight, and a great view of the Duomo! The location is amazing, right on Via Roma, steps from all the Firenze's main attractions. It was wonderful being able to walk to all the major galleries, markets, historical sites, and shops - and having the convenience of popping home for lunch or a nap, then heading back out. And at night, it was so nice to be able to take an evening stroll in a safe, bustling and charming area. We loved our stay - thank you so much Irene! We had a wonderful time and would definitely love to return, and highly recommend your place to everyone. Our sincere apologizes for this extremely delayed review!

Many thanks,
Ann and Jeff

PERFEKTE LAGE UND TRAUMHAFTER AUSBLICK

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten 5 herrliche Tage zu Sylvester in diesem chicen Appartement in einem sehr schönen alten Haus. Der Ausblick auf den Dom, ob von der Morgensonne oder von Scheinwerfern beleuchtet, faszinierte uns immer wieder. Die liebevolle Ausstattung - zwischen modern und antik - ist zweckmäßig und sehr gemütlichen. Da kein Zimmer strassenseitig ausgerichtet ist, ist diese Wohnung obwohl mitten im Zentrum sehr ruhig gelegen. Die Schlüsselübergabe klappte perfekt und man fühlt sich sofort willkommen. Von der sehr freundlichen Wohnungsbesitzerin wurden wir noch mit vielen guten Tipps - ob Einkaufen, sightseeing oder Restaurants - eingedeckt. Die Lage ist perfekt. Man erreicht mühelos alles Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß. In der Umgebung befinden sich auch einige sehr gute Lebensmittelgeschäfte. Dieses Apartment kann man nur weiterempfehlen !!!

EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just spent our honeymoon in Florence and this apartment was exactly what we were looking for.
The location of the apartment is amazing and afforded us the chance to come back and rest in between sight seeing...which is a bonus we hadn't thought of when booking. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and when the temperature dropped during our stay, the owner offered to adjust the heating for us without being prompted.
The kitchen is as small as the listing says but its perfectly equipped for cooking with all the necessary pots and pans, knives etc. It even had a genuine italian espresso maker for us to use.
The owner was extremely helpful prior to our arrival and had prepared a very personal welcome for us when we arrived which really added to our overall enjoyment of the rental. They catered well to English speaking guests, providing basic information about the nearest supermarket and pharmacy etc and recommendations for places to eat and drink. They also had international satellite TV and a decoder on the italian stations that meant some channels showed american TV shows in the original format (ie not dubbed but in english).
Being in a restricted traffic zone, there is no traffic noise and in spite of the busy location, the apartment is very quiet. That said, it is adjacent to the main piazza and Giotto's Bell Tower so expect ringing bells each morning. They add to the ambience.
Since Florence is so small, its easy to get around. The Main Railway station is only 10 minutes easy walk from the apartment as is Via Borgo Ognissanti where we picked up a rental car for a day trip to Chianti.
Overall, we would recommend this place to anyone.

IDEAL APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found this an ideal apartment for our four-week stay in Florence. We received a warm welcome from the owner, who gave us helpful recommendations for restaurants, shops, and activities, and throughout our stay made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a pleasure to live in this elegant and thoughtfully furnished apartment with its high ceilings, beautiful woodwork, lovely art prints, and stylish furniture. The kitchen is small but is equipped with all one needs to prepare meals (although there isn't an oven). Like the kitchen, the bathroom has been recently renovated and is unusually spacious, compared to other European rentals we have stayed in. We appreciated having the washing machine and dishwasher as well as the excellent Internet connection. The apartment is very centrally located, in walking distance of almost all of the main churches and museums, as well as being convenient to supermarkets, bakeries, cafes, and gelaterias. As the photos show, the bedrooms have a stunning view of the Duomo and Giotto's belltower. Because the apartment looks out on interior courtyards it is very quiet in terms of street noise. We quickly became attuned to the regular ringing of the bells and will miss hearing them at home. Over the years, we've stayed in many vacation rentals and this apartment will stay in memory as one of the very nicest.
