Overview

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 8, with elevator

This spacious three bedroom is in a historical aristocratic palace in a fantastic lively and central yet quite location - next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk (12-15 minutes, 0,7 mile) from the Duomo, Santa Croce, the Synagogue, Accademia (where the David is!) and Uffizi and popular shopping and restaurant area of Sant'Ambrogio. Michelangelo Buonarroti himself use to live very close to this area and his house is still there.

It is a very Florentine part of the town; where real upper class Florentines still live.

The day market of Sant'Ambrogio, -still very genuine place unspoiled by the tourist mob- where you can find any sort of delicious food is a few hundred metres away. Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops and restaurants of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shops) are only e few block away.

Possibility to rent a private parking for 25€/day.

Shops of all sorts are only a minute away and on the last week-end of each month the Flea Market is 250 metres away. Yet, the area is very quiet. And if you want to climb on the hill of Piazzale Michelangelo is a 20 minutes walk to get on the top.

Confortable and cosy: The Ugolino golf club with its beautiful swimming pool and tennis is only 15 km (8 miles) away.

The property is very nicely decorated with a lot of art throughout and has three bedrooms all with high end comfortable beds and mattresses, two baths with showers and a large living room. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with fridge, freezer, stove, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. The apartment also has hi speed Internet for your convenience.

Excellent in every way, very attentive host.

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from our 2nd visit to Florence and our second time renting from this owner. Although we stayed in a different apartment this visit, the experience was as positive as the first and I fully intend in staying in his third apartment on our next visit.

Booking was easy and Guido was excellent in responding to my many emails. He always makes himself available to his guests via email, text, or telephone and is always quick to respond to any question or request. We always enjoy his visits when we are there.

This was our first trip back since the elevator was installed and besides being beautiful, it is a huge bonus in Florence for those who prefer not to carry their luggage up several flights of stairs. The staircase itself is quite beautiful with wide and deep steps and a gorgeous hand rail going all the way up.
Although a 3 bedroom, only 2 were utilized by our party. Everything was in perfect working order and the kitchen is wonderful for cooking or gathering at the table to plan or review the days events. While the living area is on the smaller compared to his other two apartments there is still plenty of seating to accommodate all guests and any friends that may wish to visit.

The photos are an excellent representation of the apartment and it was clean and well maintained. The heating worked perfectly as did the washing machine (super easy to use) and dishwasher. We always had plenty of hot water with huge towels which is greatly appreciated. The beds were very comfortable and it was nice having a TV in the main two bedrooms.

The location couldn't be better. A bus stop is right out the front door and across the street. Go up a block or two and you will have a bank with ATM machine, taxi stand and bus stop to catch the C2 or C3, cafe, and bar. Just across the main road there is a grocery store, pharmacies, and restaurants and our new favorite is Serafina's, absolutely delicious food. This is not really a tourist area, this is where Italians actually live. If you go out the door and turn right there is restaurant called Cesarino's and we had a very nice dinner there. Further along is a Tobacco store where you can purchase your bus tickets and across the street is a pizza delivery place...just in case you're too tired to cook or go out.

We love to walk and this apartment is about a 15 minute stroll to the Duomo, so a perfect location for us. Thank you again Guido for a lovely stay!!

You will love this airy apartment in Florence.

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was perfect for our week in Florence. Four women were able to stay very comfortably in this flat....plenty of room. Guido was very helpful when we arrived and mapped out a grocery store, gelato and restaurants in walking distance.
The neighborhood is very nice and well lighted at night. Our favorite restaurant was right around the corner. (Cesario?) Guido will know!
We walked easily to the Duomo, museums and iconic sites. No need for cabs. Yet, the apartment is outside of the touristy area. It's also in a gorgeous building with an elevator.
You
Don't hesitate to stay in this apartment. We hope to return someday.

Great location to see the REAL Firenze

  • 5 of 5
Perfect for our adult family. We walked everywhere- including the train station when we took a day trip to Venice. You can absolutely walk to all the popular tourist points. It might be a little harder for families with small children who may not like to walk as much but our family was just fine with it. It is located in a more of a residential neighborhood than a touristy area, which was really nice. The owner, Guido, was very helpful during check in and recommended two places that we visited during our stay, Serafini café and a co-op grocery store. There is also a wonderful gelato place a few minutes away.

The best part was the kitchen, which was large enough for our family of eight to enjoy it. The clothes washer was also a great feature. The lift was perfect when we were ready to leave and used it to transport our luggage downstairs. The rooms and beds were comfortable. Highly recommend it and our family hopes to be able to stay here again one day.

Excellent location and accommodation in Florence

  • 5 of 5
This property exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, with a large, well-appointed kitchen; massive master bedroom; and two other bedrooms, as well as a sitting room. The two large bedrooms had 3-piece ensuite bathrooms. The owner, Guido, was very hospitable and helpful, offering tips on the local area, restaurants, attractions, and was always available for any questions. As we were travelling with two 18-month-old babies, the location of a children’s play park just a block away was wonderful. The apartment is located within a short walk to the downtown core, as well as having immediate access to restaurants and shops at its doorstep. A great location, and wonderful facility. We would highly recommend this apartment.

The Apartment was as mentioned in the description.
Very clean well presented and the beds were all very comfortable.
The building is well positioned for all the sights buses and Gelato!
Its also worth mentioning its very quite here.
A plus for us was the lift as my Mum was with us (75yrs) and she used it all the time.
Guido was very kind and gave us good information regarding the services in the surrounding area should we need them and the Supermarket and bank ATM's all very close by.
Book with confidence :)

Thank you Guido for your Kindness and for booking our Taxi for our journey home :)

Wonderful Property in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 plus my mother just stayed in this flat and absolutely loved it. Guido, the owner, was very kind and easy to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. The flat was clean, bright and furnished beautifully. The nicest so far we have stayed at during the past month in Italy. There was plenty of space for all of us and we enjoyed being able to spread out a bit. We loved all the space in the kitchen so that we did not have to eat out every meal. We could walk to the grocery store, Duomo, the river and anywhere else we wanted to go. When we come back to Florence we will absolutely stay here again!
