Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedrom luxury apartment, central, elevator, air conditioning wifi steamshower

A bright and airy luxury apartment located in the heart of the historical center of Florence, in Via del Melarancio in the San Lorenzo neighborhood, 300 meters (less than a quarter of a mile) from the Santa Maria Novella central train station, and only 400 meters from Piazza del Duomo, the historic heart of this unparalleled Renaissance city. You can reach Via del Melarancio from the train station via a convenient underground gallery full of shops and services. Also within a short walk from the apartment are the church of Santa Maria Novella, a Gothic and Renaissance masterpiece, the church of San Lorenzo, the Central Market, with streets full of stalls selling handcrafted gifts and souvenirs, and the Medici Chapels, famous for tombs sculpted by Michelangelo.

The apartment is located on the second floor of an elegant historic building (with an elevator), formerly the 18th-century residence of Candida Quirina Mocenni, patron of the famous poet Ugo Foscolo, who was a frequent guest, as attested by the large marble plaque on the front door.

The apartment can comfortably accommodate up to four people (two adults and two children, or three adults) and it consists of a large living room with kitchen area, a double bedroom, and a bathroom.

Great attention has been paid to the furnishings and décor, which incorporate a unique, stylish mix of period antiques with sleek and modern design elements. The bathroom is entirely finished in slabs of golden Travertine marble. The bed and sofa, upholstered in white leather, and the steel-and-glass dining table were custom designed for the suite.

In addition to central heating and air conditioning, the apartment has a corner work area complete with a computer, WiFi, and a multifunction printer. You can also connect to the Internet from the 47-inch Smart TV for Skype calls and teleconferencing while comfortably seated on the sofa! The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, refrigerator, ice machine, and espresso machine as well as an American coffee maker and stovetop “moka” coffee pot for a good, old-fashioned Italian-style coffee. There are also complete sets of cookware, cutlery, tools, and various appliances (blender, kettle, toaster, etc.) to satisfy every need...even professional!

The bathroom, with a sink carved from a single block of gold Travertine, has a large “emotional shower” (it can host two people comfortably sitting) with color therapy, aromatherapy, waterfall, steam, and classic shower options. The shower stall itself can be turned into a Turkish Bath with colored-light therapy and aroma therapy.

Why Pier Luigi Pisani chose Historic Center

The apartment is in a strategic location, a stone throw from central train station, Duomo Cathedral and all attractions. There's an elevator that's not a common facility in the center of the city and the building itself is elegant and of historical and cultural value, residence of Ugo Foscolo's patron Candida Quirina Mocenni, Martelli's relative, in '700.

What makes this apartment unique

A unique location between Santa Maria Novella, Cappelle Medicee, San Lorenzo Market and Duomo Cathedral. The area is full of restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and close to the incredible in-door market of San Lorenzo, the gastronomic mecca of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pier is the best host I have seen so far. He is very friendly and nice to accommodate our changes in the trip (because of the Air France Pilots' strike, we have been changing the arrival time but Pier is so patient and nice to us). He welcomed us in the apartment and showed us around. Let us know how to operate all the equipment in his lovely apartment. He even bought us fruit and drinks to welcome us. He also provided us a map of Florence and told us where are the attractions and the direction. Gave us useful tips and restaurant recommendations. He sent us email on the next day to make sure we do not have any questions.

For the apartment itself, it is located at the city center which is less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. The interior is remodeled and it gives you modern but blended with historical feeling (the building was built in 17th century). It is the best apartment we stayed during our Europe trip. We for sure will recommend this property to our friends and will come visit again in the future. =)

Everything about this apartment was perfect.

  • 5 of 5
From the pre arrival information to being greeted by Pier and having every luxury available in this apartment it was a perfect place to stay. Pier had provided everything we could possibly need for our stay and more. The location was great with easy walking distance to bus, train, shops, restaurants. There was a great atmosphere in the area. Would stay here again and recommend to others.

Stunning apartment...Perfect host

  • 5 of 5
Extremely clean and beautifully appointed flat was perfectly situated to see the sights and visit the markets of Florence. The kitchen has every amenity and all appliances are new and top of the line. No need to scrub the pots before you cook here. The supermarket on the street and the market just around the corner provided us with the fresh ingredients for the best meals. There is even a toaster and a drip coffee maker if you prefer a non-Italian breakfast. Good restaurants and coffee shops in the area. The map and directions provided by our host got us on the right track quickly to see the sights. The neighbourhood is safe for an evening walk for a gelati or espresso. The bed was extremely comfortable with extra linens and towels provided. The heat in the flat was adjustable so that the rooms were always the right temperature. The best flat we have ever stayed in when on vacation.

Small but perfectly formed in central location

  • 5 of 5
Appartment is in a very central location close to all major tourist attractions. Furniture and decor high end and very tasteful. All mod cons including 3d smart tv, capsule coffee machine, super steam room shower, waterfall taps - the works.

Layout really good and everything we needed was catered for. High ceilings make it seem bigger also.

Pier was great and spent quite a while with us showing how everything worked and also where to go / best places to eat etc. We even had a welcome gift of 2 little bottles of prosecco in the fridge!

There is some noise from the street but only to be expected from such a central location.

Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful week at this apartment. The apartment was exactly as pictured, perhaps even better in person. When we arrived, it was spotless. The bathroom was beautiful. We like nice finishes and so we were not disappointed with this apartment. The flooring, counters, walls, lighting, and furniture were all very nice. We truly could not have hoped for a better apartment. To top it off, Piero was amazingly helpful and responsive to any question or need whatsoever. He is an incredibly wonderful host. Importantly, the Wi-Fi was very reliable and fast. We never had a single problem with internet connection or speed. The apartment is ideally situated for exploring Florence and is just a quick walk from the train station. There is also a wonderful little grocery store next door which made having fresh meats, cheeses, breads, fruits and wine on hand very easy. The apartment also has an automatic espresso maker and we took advantage of it each day. Very nice. I would absolutely stay here again and strongly recommend this apartment to anyone who might be considering it.

fantastic place

  • 5 of 5
I was staying at SUITE DELUXE in florence from first to 15th of august
this year.
A fantastic and modern apartment in the heart of florence
with a brand new high level furnishing and really surprising features
like a steam sauna in the shower :-))
Not at all the usual "florentine style" with a lot of "patina".
The place was also perfectly clean.
The location is in one of the nicest areas of florence,
close to san lorenzo and walking distance to the railway station.
The guy who is running the place speaks perfectly english and was
extremely friendly and very helpful,
gave a lot of good advices.
I enjoyed my stay so much and hope to be back very soon.
