Excellent Apartment Near the Center of Florence
Submitted: June 4, 2012
Stayed: May 2012
Finding a place to stay for a family of five is not easy, but Roberta, the owner of this apartment, did an excellent job providing us with a clean, comfortable location close to the train station on a quiet street. The apartment was just as described in the listing. Roberta met us at the apartment, explained the use of the amenities, and responded later very quickly when we had trouble with the water (one of us had mistakenly turned off the electric pump).
The heart of Florence is a small place, so the location of this apartment is close enough to walk to all of the major sites of the city. We enjoyed a great dinner across the river, and another one right up the street at a restaurant recommended by Roberta. We particularly enjoyed going the short distance to the central market in the morning for fruits and vegetables and more for lunches and snacks.
The apartment has one room that is shut off from the rest, another two beds in the loft area, and a couch that turns into a double bed in the main living area. While tight, it provided plenty of room for the five of us. The air conditioning worked well and quietly, so that we did not have to open up the apartment to the Florentine mosquitoes at night.
I am sure there are better places to stay in Florence, but there can't be many at this price and at this convenience. I should also note that, at the conclusion of our stay, Roberta returned our entire security deposit with not problem. She allowed us to book the apartment without an advance deposit, and was an excellent host. Thanks.
