We have a fantastic position in the city, when you go out of the door you are in the heart o Florence. The apartment has everything you can need for a holiday in an elegant central place in Florence

When we renoved the apartment, we discovered that the ceilings of the biggest rooms were completely full of old frescos, patiently restored by specialized painters. We also decided to use only old typical tuscany furniture, so that our guests can live for some days the savour of the Old Florence.

The apartment was very clean and roomy, and only up one flight of step. It did have an elevator if needed. A couple of suggestions, though. It's very difficult to locate this street. We came by train and it's only a five minute walk from the train station, but we had a difficult time finding it, even with a purchased and detailed map. The woman who meets you at the apartment does not speak english, so it's hard to communicate with her if you need anything upon checking in. It would have been helpful if they had some addresses of a supermarket. You have to remember that it's not a hotel and should bring shampoo and soap, although there is handsoap in the bathrooms. I would stay there again for sure though. We also had a hard time using the a/c at first, but we did figure it out and were thankful to have those units, since it was so hot! We were a family of four 2 adults, 2 teens. Also, nice that there was wifi, however it only worked in a couple of the rooms.

Almost Perfect!

I stayed in this apartment with my husband, 3 year old son and mother-in-law for four nights in November. We immediately fell in love with the apartment. It's huge, clean and in an excellent location. We had more than enough room and plenty of extra blankets and kitchen items. The only problem we had was with the heat. It seemed to turn off every night around 6pm once we arrived after a day of exploring. I contacted Danila (the person who checks you in) and she said to turn it off and back on and wait an hour. That didn't work and we were always freezing at night - thank god for the extra blankets! On our last night Danila stopped by and had us use the A/C system turned up to 30 degrees celcius instead of the heating system, and that worked great. So we had one warm night. Despite this, I would absolutely stay here again without hesitation. It's a beautiful place!

Our family of four adults stayed here in May and were very happy with both the apartment and its location.....could not have asked for anything better. The apartment is on the first floor of an historic building, with 15 foot faux painted ceilings in the main rooms. The kitchen and bathrooms (3) have been newly fixtured; the living spaces have a mix of antique furniture and comfortable seating. It is located a short walk from the train station and the central Duomo, along with being conveniently located to a supermarket, numerous restaurants, and the Mercato market area. It is a 10 minute walk down to the river pedestrian streets...it's location is just the best. Highly recommend !

We stayed in Apartment A, called the Fresco apartment. Those who like high ceilings will like this apartment. Frescoes on ceilings. Our hostess (Danila) spoke a bit of English only, but we were able to communicate. We appreciated 1) Very spacious apartment with nice-sized washrooms 2) very central location 3 minute walk to Duomo. We each had 1 suitcase and 1 back-pack, and could walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station to this apartment 3) washing machine and clothes rack for drying 4) microwave 5) dishwasher. 6) lots of hot water, 7) elevator. There were ample pots and pans, but lids were missing or did not match, so replacement will help. As first time visitors to Florence, we did not know about the high noise level at night, mostly from cars and motorcycles gunning down the roads. Some from rowdy late night revellers. Very noisy, even with windows closed. The drivers are probably enjoying the lack of pedestrians on the roads and are zooming to their hearts' content. We don't think this is specific to this apartment itself. Central Florence is a maze of narrow roads and low buildings. If you choose the convenience of staying in central Florence, the offsetting factor will be the noise at night. The "Despar" small supermarket on San Lorenzo is terrible. We were happy to bump into another small supermarket elsewhere to buy milk. Otherwise, we bought fruit, bread, vegetables, ready-to-eat meats are much better in the Mercato Centrale. Still a walkable distance. Just bring an empty back-pack to pack your groceries.

Fantastic apartment in a great location. The rooms are enormous by Italian standards and we were a family of 5 with 3 teenage children. We walked everywhere and would often just pop out for an aperitivo or coffee as we were so centrally located. It was an easy walk from the train station with our luggage and our hostess couldn't have been more accommodating. There is a supermarket nearby for essentials but also the markets and restaurants. Great kitchen meant we could dine in when we felt like it! Would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Florence.
