Great location, nice place to stay for vacation

  • 5 of 5
The property is located just near the centre station which is very convenience for us who traveled by train. The place is clean and comfortable. Although no WiFi connection in this property, but it's the only time my husband watch the World football match, and my daughter went to bed early without concerning about her internet games. The owner is kind and easy to deal with. The only issue is the property located at 4th floor and no elevator there. Thus, if you have a heavy luggage, that might be a little tough. There is a very nice restaurant nearby at the same street which we had 2 nights dinner over there. Great place to stay ! Will definitely recommend to my friends when they travel to Florence.

Great stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the apartment for two nights in June. From the booking process to arrival, Roberta was an excellent host, and was very quick to respond to e-mails. She was also very accommodating to our travel delays. The apartment was awesome and has great views of Florence. There were three adults and a 7 yr-old child and we had more than enough room. We used the kitchen to cook several meals. The location was unbelievable, easy walk to all attractions. Thanks for the great stay, Roberta.

Just what we were looking for! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this apartment based on the reviews and were so happy that it met our expectations! Roberta was always easy and prompt with correspondence. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable for our family of four. The building was quiet and felt very safe.The location was perfect, an easy walk from the train station (we parked our car in Scandicci and took the tramvia in). We loved the nearby Plaza Santa Maria Novella with it's open air food market.
Most of the Plazas and coffee shops in Florence seemed to have free wifi so we didnt miss it in the apartment. It was an easy walk to all the sights. If you have big, heavy bags the stairs might be a challenge but we didn't mind them. We would recommend this place and would definitely stay again if we ever came back!

Lots of space, clean, centrally located, cool neighborhood. Easy to walk to all major sites. Recommended for families, lots of space. Couldn't get the heater to work, so make sure you ask when you get keys. Thanks Roberta!

Owner's Response: Hello Lori,
many thanks for your nice review, I'm glad that your stay was pleasant. A note on heating: it was set off cause of the outside temperature of 21°, it was a very warm October in Florence this year.

Perfectly located, clean, highly comfortable apartment, lovely and very helpful owner - a dream!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is maximum 10 min away from just about everything you want to visit in Florence, which makes it truly an ideal base. It was nice to be able to come back to the apartment after lunch and get the tired kids to bed for a quick siesta. Top floor with no elevator but it's really no big deal - if you can walk around Florence, you'll fly up the stairs in no time.

The apartment is very clean and has everything you need for your stay. The beds are very comfortable, even the pull-out couch was comfy. We were 3 adults and 2 small kids and the apartment was spacious enough for our needs. The kitchen is well equipped but we never actually used it: the trattoria next door ('Cento Poveri') turned out to be so excellent that we ended up dining there most of the evenings.

Parking the car turned out to be very easy: the big parking lot near Coop shopping center (far west end of the city) is free and well-lit, the tram ride back to the city center takes less than 10 minutes, all in all it was no headache at all.

Roberta the owner is very friendly and helpful, always reachable and responsive - truly a perfect hostess! We'll be back soon :)

Wonderful apartment in heart of the city

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is wonderful and has been extremely well maintained. My husband and I just returned from a four night stay in the apartment and we really loved it. Roberta, the owner, was prompt and courteous with questions prior to our arrival, as well as with any questions that we had during our stay. She provided her cell phone number and we were able to text back and forth with her during our stay. She also checked in on us to make sure everything was okay and returned the deposit before we left, which was a nice added touch. The apartment has alot of character with the tile floors, exposed ceiling beams, fireplace, and loft. We also loved the large cabinet in the dining room. Also, since the apartment is on the top floor, it has a lot of windows (excellent views in all directions) and lets in alot of natural light. It is open and airy and we loved it because it was a nice change of pace from the typically small & stuffy rooms you get in most hotels/apartments in Europe. The apartment is exactly as advertised (the pictures do not do it justice as it is even nicer in person) with a fully functioning kitchen and full bathroom, with ample space for at least 6 persons. The location is fabulous with it being on a quiet side street that is just about a 5 minute walk from the train station and about a 7-10 minute walk from the famous bridge and Uffizi Gallery. There are also three quaint family-run restaurants on the street...one of which is fabulous. The one that is fabulous is the fresh seafood/fresh pasta restaurant on the corner. It was busy from lunch through late night dinner and we liked it so much we ate there three of the four nights---trying the different house specialties. The remaining night we cooked, which was nice because the apartment had a full "American sized" refrigerator and freezer. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone interested in staying in Florence as we already recommended it to individuals we met on a day tour that we took from Florence. The combination of the price, location, cleanliness, and friendliness of Roberta rivals any 5-star hotel in the area. The only downside is that there is no lift and it is on the top floor; therefore, anyone with difficulty with stairs would not be able to get to the apartment. We definitely didn't mind the stairs. Roberta---if you ever decide to sell the apartment, please let us know :) We will rent again when we return to Florence in the future.

The apartment is located in the district of St. Maria Novella, one of the oldest in Florence. A few minutes walk from Central Station, the main hub for all the links via bus and rail to the airport (Florence and Pisa) and other areas of turistic interest. All major sights are within walking distance, as well as shops and restaurants. In the surrounding streets there are many craft shops and antique shops and do not miss the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica of Santa Maria Novella, a herbal medicine shop that looks like a museum.
