Ditto - see previous review!

  • 5 of 5
There is very little I can add to Ann and Wayne's review - the apartment and owner's attention and advice are all that they say and more. The combination washer/dryer was especially useful, excellent Wi-Fi, and the location ( literally minutes walk to the Duomo, Uffizi, Mercato Centrale, Eatily etc) is perfect.
If staying 3 days or more, definitely buy the Firenze card at the very helpfully staffed tourist office across the street - it's worth it for the time saving, no queuing, priority access as the lines here are HUGE and can take half a day to get inside. Grazie, Simonetta and Mario.

A Great Place to Stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5
We had a WONDERFUL time in Florence. thanks in no small part to our great hosts, Mario and Simonetta. We were stayed here for a week and a half in September, 2014.

From the time we booked this apartment and our arrival, we received excellent communication and updates from Simonetta and Mario. Mario met us at the train station and we walked (yes it's only 10 minutes away) to our apartment.

Simonetta and Mario gave us a quick tour of the apartment and instructions on how to use the various appliances. They also shared some of the local restaurants and sites you may want to see and experience. You'll love this apartment, especially when you learn its history. The entry floor has your kitchen, eating area, bathroom and bedroom. Downstairs is another large room with another ample sleeping area.

The apartment is in a perfect location for viewing Florence. We walked everywhere! And we loved it! We also used the apartment as a central hub for exploring Pisa (30 minutes by train), Rome (an hour), and Venice (2-hours).

We did not have any problems but Simonetta and Mario sent us emails periodically during our stay just to follow up and ensure all was well.

The apartment is clean, comfortable, has a combo washer/dryer, a compact and complete kitchen and refrigerator, comfortable bed(s), 2 TV's, air conditioning, good wireless (and an RJ45 CAT-5 cable to connect your PC or laptop directly if you need it), and all the towels, blankets and pillows you'll need for your stay.

We enjoyed the apartment, appreciated and loved Simonetta and Mario, and fell in love with Florence.

We definitely recommend this property to others and will return ourselves the next time we're in Florence. Thank you Simonetta and Mario for a great experience.

Best Regards,

Ann and Wayne

Perfect Florence Location!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter & I had a wonderful week in Firenze at this very clean and well-equipped apartment. Mario & Simonetta were extremely accommodating, meeting me at the SMN train station when I arrived from Boston. They explained how to use all the appliances and where to find anything we'd need. Mario even called later to make sure my daughter arrived safely from northern Italy. As it was July, the heat & humidity were very high! The apartment was so close to all attractions so we could return at mid-day to fix a light lunch and take a break in the superb air conditioning! We felt very safe when we returned to the apartment after having a late dinner and stopping to enjoy a gelato at the Piazza del Duomo. The beds were very comfortable, and it was quiet at night. On our last day, Mario even picked us up and took my daughter to the train station and me to the airport! I'd definitely recommend this property because of the kind and accommodating owners, AC, cleanliness, and of course - the unbeatable location!! Mario & Simonetta, Amanda & I had a wonderful time in beautiful Firenze, and were so touched by your hospitality. Grazie!! Linda

Florence Apartment in Historic City Center

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with our two week stay in this apartment in Florence's historic city center and highly recommend it to Florence visitors who enjoy walking in the historic city centers. The location is astounding! It's a block and a half from the Duomo, and across the street from the Palazzo Medici Riccardi. It's a five minute walk to the Mercato Vecchio where fantastic fresh produce, fruit, pasta fresca, cheeses, salumi, seafood and meats can be found. It's a leisurely twenty minute walk to the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio. You cannot find a more central location - a few steps from everything you want to see - and the rent is an amazing bargain. The kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed several meals that we cooked using the bounty of the Mercato Vecchio. The ground floor bedroom has ample storage and an extremely comfortable large bed with excellent mattresses and plenty of covers. There was no noise from the street as the apartment fronts on an inner courtyard. The bathroom is completely modern and the heating system is very responsive. We did not use the downstairs during our March visit but imagine it would offer a welcome cool retreat during hot summer months. Our landlords, Mario and Simonetta, are attentive and most generous. Mario met us at the train station upon our arrival and escorted us to the apartment - a five minute walk - where he showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment and suggestions for enjoying the city, including maps and a long list of reliably good restaurants nearby. Who could ask for more?

As nice as advertised, but...

  • 1 of 5
Location and apartment furnishings and equipment are excellent.
But, we did not sleep there, because there was a strong mold smell and signs of mold coming through the fresh paint...
So if you are sensitive to mold smell or have allergies, caveat emptor!
We did bare the full cost of the apartment and a hotel, so left Florence 3-days early.

Owner's Response: We are sorry....we are pleased if our guests are happy in our apartment and spend an unforgettable holiday.

We wrote to Mr. Noel an email to know if everything was ok in our apartment (as we write usually to all of our guests) and he responded to us only when he was already gone from Florence ... addition he knew our phone number and did not call to advise us ... however he had used the apartment, because he was there to cook, eat, to use the washing machine and iron ... probably the smell was not as unbearable…and I don't know, if he truly went to sleep somewhere else!

Long before his arrival, we had warned him not to come by car in Florence, because our apartment is located in a pedestrian zone, forbidden to cars and parking cars are few and very expensive.....he answers me (almost resentful), who had no economic problems.
I also wanting to, I could not give back to him the money. because when I knew everything, he was already gone from Florence.

IN THE WHOLE TUSCANY IT RAINS FOR 2 MONTHS… and no one has ever complained about this problem in our apartment.
A little moisture is normal in a historic building (it goes back to year 1.400)....if the Messrs are sufferers of an allergy so strong, he had to book in a modern building and in any case if he had responded to our email or had telephoned us, everything would be resolved.
Our apartment was completely renovated 2 years ago and recently we haven't painted it.

Eight Glorious Nights

  • 5 of 5
This was my very first time renting an apartment overseas and I was spoiled by the experience. Although I have rented three other apartments already since Florence last month and they have all been terrific, this place and the owners will be very hard to beat. It set the bar very high indeed.

I was met at the airport. How kind, especially after four flights to get to Florence. The apartment is absolutely perfect. Everyday, two or three times a day, I wanted to pinch myself. There was the Duomo, for heaven's sake, right there, 150 meters from my front door. And yet it was very quiet. I simply cannot think of a single suggestion to enhance visitors' experience here, let alone make a complaint. It was perfect.

The train station is literally a leisurely ten minute stroll away, and major attractions such as the Uffizi, Medici Chapels, and David are no more than 200-250 meters from the apartment. Perfect location.

The apartment was clean, the owners were beyond kind and considerate, and I cannot wait to go back. The internet service was flawless, something that is very important to me, especially when I am on my own, as was the case for this stay.

I would, and already have in fact, recommend this apartment with 100% confidence that others will find it as ideally situated, and appealing, as did I.
