Description

Santa Maria Novella Apartment Rental Photos and Description

with kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom with 4 beds

The house is located on the first floor of an old building built in the seventeenth century, and has been beautifully restored giving prominence to every architectural detail. The slaked lime antique, that we find in all the walls, gives the apartment the Renaissance flavor that we can hardly find it elsewhere.

And 'the ideal place to spend a holiday in the cradle of the city, where churches, museums and old buildings make it an open-air museum.

The apartment is equipped with every comfort with a full kitchen, living room with sofa bed, a room with a living space and bathroom with shower. Ideal for a maximum of four people.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Convenient location but not too comfortable.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was conveniently located and quite spacious and the owner was quick to respond to our request for toilet paper, pillowcases and internet issues. It was nicely equipped with cooking necessities, hair dryer, iron, ironing board and drying rack. Unfortunately, there were a number of things that would keep us from recommending this apartment:

Street noise - between the people, vendor carts and street cleaners there was an endless cacophony of noise late into the night, which prohibited the opening of windows for fresh air and was greatly distracting for a light sleeper.

The bed - very uncomfortable! The mattress sagged and the bedframe was squeaky.

The towels - clean but rough and stiff - need to upgrade as well as machine dry.

Curtains - would recommend they install room darkening shades or curtains - the street lights at night illuminated the entire apartment.

Other suggestions - provide toilet paper and a roll of paper towels. It would also have been nice to have a small quantity of laundry detergent. (We purchased some and left it for the next renters.)

We also recommend a better check of the apartment before renting - we found dirty dishes in the dishwasher, the washing machine had scummy water in it and the bedspread could have used a changing. Also, some of the lights did not work but the owner fixed it - it must have been a fuse - should have been checked ahead of time.

A bit of a disappointment for the money we paid!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful apartment. It has so much space. The furnishings were great and easy to use. I slept like a baby on the bed - and the place was quiet. The location is wonderful, a relatively short walk to the Duomo, the center of tourist activities. There are restaurants nearby - down the street!- and a supermarket is not too far. I was met by Lara at the exact time we agreed on. I would love to stay here again.

Great for long term stay!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment location was amazing in every sense of the word. It had everything from size, to fully stocked kitchen and even a clothes washer. A well appointed bathroom and everything would have been great except for the poor bed. Really the bed was a let down given the rest of the apartment.

Location is right in the city center and parking an be a bit of a drag and very expensive ($57 euros for 2 days). I'd suggest parking outside of the city center if you can.

Lara was great and pointed us to some really nice restaurants and hangouts.

Would stay here again in a heartbeat! (Especially if the bed was replaced.)

Great customer service, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, attractive, generously equipped and beautifully air-conditioned. The location within the city couldn't have been better. We are thinking of spending another short break in Florence at a slightly cooler time of year and we wouldn't hesitate to book the same place again.

A Great Location in the Heart of Florence

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy. We spent 2 nights in this apartment. It is in a great location. It is just a short 5 minute walk to the train station and is a couple of minutes from the central market. We loved the central market for the fresh food in the mornings and the wonderful restaurants later in the day. It is surrounded by a great leather market. All of the museums and the sights are within easy walking distance. The apartment is well equipped and is exactly as the pictures show. It was extremely clean. Our only concern is that the apartment is on a busy street and it could be a little loud. The landlords were easy to deal with and made our trip enjoyable. We will recommend the apartment to all but let them know it can be a little loud.

Elegant; excellent location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in the heart of downtown Florence. Right next to the Mercato Centrale, where you can buy food and find many eating places. You can walk to almost anything you might want to see. It is in a student area, and so it is noisy from the street. We were there in Nov, so closed the windows at night and the noise was not a problem.

The apartment is elegant, if sparsely, furnished. Clearly recently and skilfully renovated. Very clean. Beautiful bathroom with the best shower I have ever had travelling in Europe. Plenty of ceiling lights, but no reading lamps. The galley kitchen has all you need to prepare simple meals. The clothes washer was - unfortunately for us - not working.

We were met by the charming Alberto who showed us the apartment. There is a new lock on the door, and we found it a bit tricky to remove the key, so I suggest you try it before Alberto leaves.
