Our family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children) rented the apartment for a week and we were not disappointed! The apartment clean, spacious and set in the most ideal location. I had no idea we would be so close to everything. On our first day we accidentally walked to the Duomo Cathedral which was breathtaking. Also, the Santa Maria train station is very close and we were able to catch a train to Venice and Rome with ease and very little time. Mariano was a gracious host, helping us with all the little details of the apartment. We were also able to walk to all that Florence has to offer: Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio, Medici Palace, restaurants, shops, you name it! I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking a true Florentine experience!
Three couples from the U.S., traveling Italy together...and this place was perfect for the 6 of us! We were able to walk from SMN train station...which was one of the reasons I chose this apt. You can walk to just about everything in Florence from here... the location is excellent. If mobility is an issue for you...keep in mind, there is a flight of stairs you will have to climb with you luggage. The elevator stops on the 2nd floor...and the apartment is 1 floor above that. The 6 of us are in our mid 50's to mid 60's...and this was not a hardship for us. The only negative I can think of, is there is no clothes dryer...which is not that big a deal...but your clothes will come out of the washer very wrinkled. There is an iron in the apt and a folding rack for drying. We felt very safe here...with the huge locked door on the street level...and the locked gate on the apartment level. The apartment is exactly as depicted on VRBO. All and all....I loved this apartment and would recommend it highly!
Thank you, Donatella.

The apartment in Palazzo del Marchese is a lovely apartment situated in the perfect location to enjoy Florence. It is a few minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella train station and equally as close to all the sights in the heart of Florence. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped. Our party of five adults were very comfortable.
All of our contact (email) with the owner was easy and efficient. The very charming gentleman, Mariano, who showed us around the apartment was most helpful and when he learned that some of our party were travelling with bicycles, he took the time to map out some lovely rides around the city and beyond. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to family and friends.
I will say little about the apt. itself, except that it is just as lovely and convenient as others say. Its greatest asset is a hidden one--the owner, Donatella. We were 3 couples and, unfortunately, one of us suffered a bad fall, requiring hospital care and relocation of one couple to a hotel. Donatella was a true friend in need--she gave us support and guidance, located the needed hotel for the one couple, and was always available with wise advice and help. My wife and I have rented dozens of times in Italy but when we return again to Florence, we will always rent from Donatella, the best landlord in Italy.
The apartment was in the perfect location, central to all the action and sights. Some of the best restaurants in the city were steps away. The apartment was perfect in every way regarding the "as advertised" posting on VRBO. The meet for the keys and the show around was flawless, Ilda was absolutely lovely and at our disposal at any time via text. She toured us through the apartment in detail and extended a warm welcom to Florence. We were 100% Pleased with the apartment and all the lovely details. We would recommend and a rent this apartment again without hesitation.

This apartment is every bit as beautiful as the photos. Our family of six (two grandparents, two parents, two teenagers) were very comfortable here -- everyone had very private sleeping quarters (with comfy beds!), and there was still room for us to all be together. The elevator was a lifesaver -- walking the last flight of stairs was not a problem. We cooked dinner in one night and had breakfast in the apartment in the mornings. This would have been a bit easier if a few more basics could be provided such as coffee filters and condiments. We used the washing machine, which worked quite well.
The best things about this apartment were its location, and its position at the top level of the building, which kept it very quiet and provided beautiful views of the city. Ilda did a great job of showing us to the apartment and helping us get settled!
Really heart of Florence , few minutes from S. maria Novella station , Duomo and Piazza della Signoria , one of the most elegant area of Florence!
many restaurants within the same block , one also very famous in the same building . Wonderfull shops , everything that you could possibly need for daily existance is just around the corner .
