The night area consists in a large master bedroom with double bed, a second bedroom with 2 single beds, and a third bedroom with 2 single beds. The first bathroom is fitted with bathtub and shower while the second bathroom is fitted with a stall shower.
Location, location. This apartment is literally across the street from the train depot and within walking distance of all the special sights you’ll want to see.
The fifth floor views can be enjoyed in two directions and the view includes the amazing Il Duomo. There’s an elevator to get you up to these views.
The dining and living rooms are large and airy with a wall of windows. The three bedrooms all have views of Florence and are pleasant and clean.
And there is an ice cream shop just outside the gates!
We (me, wife, 3 kids) spent 6 nights in Florence, using this flat as a hub for some day trips to Pisa, Cinque Terre and Tuscan wine country, and of course the wonders of Florence. The apartment was spacious and clean, although a little dated. The views from the terraces of the Duomo, and surrounding countryside were spectacular. The location was great, right next to the main train station, so we didn't even need a taxi getting in and out of Florence. We felt very safe walking around even late at night, there were always lots of people around. There were several good restaurants very close by. The only criticisms I have are 1) the apartment does directly overlook the train tracks, so it can at times get a bit loud at night 2) lousy shower water pressure and poor hot/cold output- made for very quick rinse offs! 3) other VRBO properties I stayed in allowed final payment via PayPal, whereas here I had to come up with cash- can be a little challenging with ATM limits (also hate walking around with large amounts of cash)
That all said, I would definitely stay here again and recommend highly to friends/family.
This apartment offered a superb location to walk to all spots in Florence. It's 5 minutes from the train station, which is fabulous when travelers are hauling luggage upon arrival and departure. It's about 10 minutes from the piazza del Duomo, in the center of the city, so our ability to reach almost any site was easy. The building is older, as noted, but clean and functional. The bedrooms nicely sized for adult couples and the bathrooms equally fine. We found the apartment clean and well maintained, the manager responsive and helpful. The convenience store next door is a great place for a late-night gelato! I would recommend this apartment without any concerns.
This is a great location. Being just across from the train station was a real plus and there was easy access to the attractions and restaurants. We did not find the apartment to be clean. It was quite dusty upon arrival and the owner did offer to have the house cleaner come, but it should have been clean when we arrived. We had no towels or sponge for the kitchen and when we arrived on Saturday there was one bath towel between 5 of us. More towels were brought in on Monday, but in the mean time we had to buy towels. Two of the three balconies shown in the pictures are unusable. One is full of dead plants and very dirty; the other is where the washer is and was full of bird droppings. The 3rd useable balcony has drawbacks as well. It is right under a major bus waiting area and the pollution/exhaust/noise may be an issue for some. Also, the bedroom windows are on that same side and the buses could be very noisy. Some of the furniture was quite old and the credenza in the front entry had broken mirror/glass in the cubby – not ideal for children. The thing that was the most distasteful was the smell of the apartment. It is an old building, but the rancid smells were very strong. We did not look forward to coming back after a long day of sight-seeing. The shower curtains were dirty and need replacing and the shower leaked. The beds were fine, but those nice green bedspreads shown in the pictures are not there. We have used the various vacation rental sites many times and have not been disappointed. This one disappointed because it was not as presented.
Our family of 5 stayed in this flat and as previously stated it looks exactly like the pictures. Very spacious and clean. The bed in the master bedroom was great, the beds in the other 2 rooms are fine for kids but adults would find them small. A short walk from the train station and central location made it very convenient. May 1st was a major holiday and it was very noisy that night but the other nights were quiet. A family would find this a great place to stay.
We found this rental an ideal location within walking distance for site seeing in Florence. Very close to train station, restaurants & shops. Unit was very comfortable, clean & provided whatever was required during our stay. Security of the gate & front door was a comforting benefit. Only thing we can suggest is providing directions to the flat when existing the train station, as the number 21 is written in large print on the corner building one block before the actual rental building. Maybe besides the address it would help to state it has a gate entrance & located next to the Cafe (forget the name of it). Overall we had an enjoyable stay at the rental & will recommend to friends & family.
