Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were very happy with this apartment and the owners. The apartment was clean and well appointed, exactly as described on VRBO. It has 2 air conditioner units (1 in the living room and 1 in the bedroom) which was very nice because it gets quite hot in the summer. The furnishings are nice and the kitchen is well equipped. The mattress is firm and comfortable. The location is excellent. It is approximately a 15 min walk to the train station and within minutes of the Academia, Duomo, a market and many cafes..... oh and one of the best gelato shops is just around the corner. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. They even arranged for a taxi to pick us up at 5am for our flight home. We would definitely stay here again.

It was just right for us

  • 4 of 5
Thank-you for a lovely stay at your apartment. It was just right for us. It was simply but elegantly decorated, loved the antiques. The kitchen was great and the bed was really comfortable. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere. Loved the little cafes on the first floor of the building and the market around the corner. Our hosts were gracious and helpful. We loved our time in Florence and staying at this apartment made it extra special. We highly recommend it.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
I agree with the other reviews on this nicely equipped and well appointed apartment. We were surprised at its spaciousness! We loved the location of the apartment and were able to walk everywhere. Piazza San Marco is very busy but not as crowded with tourists as the other famous piazzas.

We stayed in the apartment for a month and had a great time selecting from a huge variety of trattorias within a 15 minute walk ... and we never had a bad meal! Surprisingly we often needed dinner reservations even in the off season. The Conad on via Servi was our go-to place for general food shopping. They even issued us a customer card to use during our stay. But, for cheeses, meats, produce, etc. we frequented the mercato at San Ambrogio (a great neighborhood feel) and the nearby Mercato Centrale.

The only problem we had was with the apartment's wifi connection. It was very often not available. We discovered we could receive (in the apartment) the free wifi connection from the Grande Cafe San Marco located below the apartment on the ground level. We left the password in the apartment but it is also available at the cafe. We showed our appreciation by stopping by for an espresso from time to time.

We enjoyed our visit to Firenze and our stay at the apartment and wish the same for those who follow. Vacanza felice!

Owner's Response: I am happy that my guests, two delicious people, have had a happy vacation in my appartmento. I am sorry that the connection internet in that period has been disturbed, probably from momentary external interferences: it perfectly works now. I am happy however that has been able to make up for to the problem.
Delicious guests that I hope to again entertain if they returned in italia.

Perfect location - perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5
This was our 1st time visiting Italy and we coupled this visit with a few days in Pisa.
We were met on arrival by Valeria, the housemaid; who, despite not speaking English, was very jolly and showed us around the apartment with no problems.
Elisabetta and Danilo came to see us the following day to say hi and to make sure there were no problems.
What a wonderful couple.... they recommended the nicest place to eat (Accademia Restaurant just outside the apartment) and Danilo also arranged for football tickets for us to watch Fiorentina play (handy hint - if you do go to a footmall match, make sure you take photographic ID with you)
Elisabetta is such a lovely lady and even let us store our luggage in her storeroom until it was time to get our train.

The apartment is extremely well equipped with everything you could want for cooking. Florence is quite expensive so we ate in on several occasions. There's a great little supermarket around the corner that sells beer for 1 Euro a bottle, so stock up instead of paying bar prices !! The fresh tomatoes were also lovely and we ate our favourite Insalata Caprese every day !

The bed was lovely and comfy, although if you are a light sleeper I recommend ear-plugs as it may get a bit noisy in the square at night (there's a main bus stop in the square and it's always busy). This did not stop me getting a good nights sleep I must reiterate.

The apartment is perfectly located for all the main sights - Galleria Del Accademia is just around the corner (reserve your tickets in the box office opposite the Galleria to avoid a lengthy queue), and all the Piazzas and Pilazzos are all within walking distance.

Get on a bus (no 12 or 13) at the SMN station and go to Piazza Michelangelo, the views are amazing and it's a lovely place for a beer and a panino in the sun.

Thank you Elisabetta and Danilo for an unforgetable time in Florence - we will highly recommend you to our friends and family. x

Owner's Response: Una coppia veramente carina e simpatica che abbiamo avuto il piacere di conoscere; particolare il loro desiderio di assistere ad una partita di calcio della Fiorentina: è stato simpatico incontrarli pronti a partire per lo stadio con la sciarpa viola al collo! una coppia eccezionale! hanno descritto perfettamente l'appartamento e non devo aggiungere altro. Spero vivamente che ritornino per ospitarli di nuovo!
A really nice couple that we have had the pleasure to know; particular their desire to assist to a game of soccer of the Fiorentina, the team of Florence : has been nice to meet them ready to depart for the stadium with the violet scarf to the neck! an exceptional couple! they have perfectly described the apartment and I must not add other. I warmly hope that they return for entertaining them again!

Would come again

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 2 friends stayed during a long weekend for my birthday. Elisabetta was very welcoming and gave us recommendations of places to eat which were excellent. There was plenty of information provided including guide books, a DVD of local attractions and all the manuals for the appliances.

The apartment is in a very central location right by the Accademia which is perfect if you wanted to go early to beat the queue! All the other main attractions such as the market, Uffizi and Duomo were only a short walk away. It is right on Piazza San Marco which can get noisy during the night but we did not find this an issue.

It was spotless, very well equipped with everything that you would want including a washing machine and DVD player. Elisabetta ensured that the sofabed was already made and there was plenty of towels.

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this apartment.
